The passuk says – ki shem Hashem ekra havu godel le’lokeinu – when I call in the name of Hashem, render greatness to our G-d
Alternatively, this passuk can be transalated – give a thumb to our G-d, but then the kashe is – why would you give a thumb to G-d?
The way the decision was made which cohen would get an avodah in the beis hamikdash was that the cohanim would stand in a circle and each raise a finger. The cohen in charge would stand in the centre and count round in a circle looking at the fingers to know which cohen he was up to. The cohen that he finished on got that avodah.
The mishna says in Yoma – ein motziin egodel bamikdash – The cohanim may not present a thumb to be counted becuase then they could also hold up their small finger and be counted twice and therefore have double the chance of getting the avodah.
This applies to a human in charge of allocating the avodah – however Hashem does not make mistakes therefore havu godel lelokeinu – you may present your thumb to Hashem when coming to daven shemone esrei which reminds us of the avodah.July 23, 2012 1:34 pm at 1:34 pm #1202298
Just yesterday, I came home and my brother was sitting there by the kitchen table, which was covered with thousands of tiny orange pieces.
“What are you doing?” I asked him.
“Making a puzzle,” He beamed. “A tiger!” He picked up the box and showed it to me.
“No, moshe,” I groaned. “Put the Frosties back in the box…”July 23, 2012 2:31 pm at 2:31 pm #1202299

I had to laugh the other day when i was waiting behind a guy by the drinks machine. He put in a dollar and took out a can of coke. Then he put in another dollar and took out another coke.
I was amused watching him taking out twenty cans. I said to him:
“Can you get on with it?”
He turned to me with a smirk and said: “You’re just jealous – I won every time!!!”July 29, 2012 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #1202306

A Florida senior citizen drove his brand new Corvette convertible out
of the dealership. Taking off down the road, he pushed it to 80 mph,
enjoying the wind blowing through what little hair he had left.
“Amazing,” he thought as he flew down I-95, pushing the pedal even more.
Looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a Florida State Trooper, blue
lights flashing and siren blaring. He floored it to 100 mph, then 110,
then 120. Suddenly he thought, “What am I doing? I’m too old for this!”
and pulled over to await the trooper’s arrival.
Pulling in behind him, the trooper got out of his vehicle and walked
up to the Corvette. He looked at his watch, then said, “Sir, my shift
ends in 30 minutes. Today is Friday. If you can give me a new reason
for speeding–a reason I’ve never before heard — I’ll let you go.”
The old gentleman paused then said: “Three years ago, my wife ran off
with a Florida State Trooper. I thought you were bringing her back.
“Have a good day, Sir,” replied the trooper.July 30, 2012 2:04 am at 2:04 am #1202309Luna LovegoodParticipant

True story this week in Lakewood
A drug deal gone bad ended with one of the parties being robbed at gunpoint, police say. The incident occurred at about 11:45 PM in the parking lot of the Best Western Hotel on Route 70.
A man reportedly agreed to meet a drug dealer to purchase a product, and when he arrived, the dealer pulled a gun on his client instead and demanded his wallet and cell phone. He took the proceeds and fled, without handing over the drugs.
Police are investigating the incident. TLS-YYB/TLS-CCP.
What an idiot:
DRUG ADDICT: A man just robbed me in the parking lot on Rt 70.
POLICE: Please describe what happened.
DRUG ADDICT: I was trying to buy drugs, but he just took the money and never gave me the drugs.
POLICE: Oh. Stay right where you are. We are coming to arrest you.August 30, 2012 6:49 pm at 6:49 pm #1202323REALISTMember

Let me tell you a story, my holy brothers and sisters… Once upon a time… i was walking in the desert. So thirsty, so hot; no water to drink.
I davened to the Holy One above, and He sent me a camel. [Interlude: Ko Omar… ???? ???? ?????…]
So now I was walking with the camel, and i saw – we saw – a man standing, so holy, so pure – holding out some water.
I ran towards him, i could see the kedusha on his face… and i fell into the pit, with the camel on top of me…

Get Prepared – Things are going to get ugly
This morning the Muslim Brotherhood warned the United States that if the United States continues meddling in Egypt, Libya , and other potential hot spots in the middle east, they intend to cut off America’s supply of 7-11 and Motel 6 managers.
If this action does not yield sufficient results, cab drivers will be next, followed by Dell, AT&T and AOL customer service reps.
Finally, if all else fails, they have threatened not to send us any more presidents.

a couple was having a party at their house. an hour before the party the woman found out that she still needed escargots. so she sent her husband out to get it. he was walking to the supermarket and he figured he had lots of time. so he stopped at the bar on the way. an hour and a half later he looked at his watch and realized that the party had already started. he quickly ran to the market, bought the snails and ran home. he tried to sneak into the kitchen without his wife seeing him but at that moment his wife came out. he quickly threw the snails on the floor and said, “come on guys, we’re almost there.”December 10, 2012 1:08 am at 1:08 am #1202345ShuychusMember

A Jewish guy buys a car, and chooses a Lamborghini. He then decides, that he wants to put a mezuzzah on it. He goes to an Orthodox Rabbi and says, “Rabbi, I want you to put a mezuzzah on my Lamborghini”.
The Rabbi answers, “What’s a Lamborghini?”.
The Jewish guy says, “It’s a very expensive, fancy Italian car”.
The Rabbi says, “Sorry, we don’t put mezuzzahs on cars”.
He then goes to a Conservative Rabbi and says, “Rabbi, I want you to put a mezuzzah on my Lamborghini”.
