Last week, I asked a greengrocer whether or not it should be legal to appear in public wearing ballet slippers as gloves. He said no, because it would be a public safety hazard if people couldn’t use their hands. Today I asked another greengrocer whether people should be allowed to walk on the street with shoes on their hands, and he said that not allowing it would be a violation of people’s personal freedom! Make up your collective mind, greengrocers!
I have a red cabbage.
You’re color blind. One was a Green grocer while the other was red. That’s the reason
Someone else whose name starts with S specifically told me that I have an eye for color, hypocrite.
Machlokes and hypocrisy are not the same thing.
See tosafos, who posits that perhaps ballet slippers are not shoes. Thus we can reconcile the two views by the greengrocers. But we should also consider whether one of the greengrocers was a talmud of Shammai and the other of Hillel…
Or one of them came from a town that has non-slip sidewalks, so public safety was not diminished by allowing personal freedom.
