How old were you when you told your first joke? Was it funny? Was it funny but “you had to be there”?February 18, 2014 4:15 pm at 4:15 pm #1017765
I haven’t told it yet.February 18, 2014 5:04 pm at 5:04 pm #1017766
I’ve got a better question. What are the first names of your three wives, and how long did each marriage last?February 18, 2014 5:29 pm at 5:29 pm #1017767☕ DaasYochid ☕Participant
177?February 18, 2014 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #1017768
Gila, Rena, Deetza.
They ended “m’heira”.February 18, 2014 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1017769
BZZZZZZZ! I’m sorry that is incorrect. Their names were Frenchi, Chaye and Malkie and the marriages lasted 25 yrs, 22 months, and 177 days respectively. Or not so respectivelyFebruary 18, 2014 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #1017770yaakov doeParticipant
Assuming that the 3 wives were at different times, did any leave over the incessant letter writing?February 18, 2014 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #1017771
Nina, Pinta..February 18, 2014 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1017772
It’s silly to marry one at a time.February 18, 2014 10:47 pm at 10:47 pm #1017773
I think we should refrain from asking such personal questions of someone who might want to keep such stuff private. And BOY, did I misread the title of this thread!February 19, 2014 12:14 am at 12:14 am #1017774hodulashemParticipant
uh oomis, just wanna point out that Yashi and Pember asked the question himself lolFebruary 19, 2014 12:42 am at 12:42 am #1017775
The final marriage ended (and, incidentally, began as well) in 2008. The FJJ started publishing in 2010, so obviously the letter writing had nothing to do with it. No; Malkie realized quite quickly what an absolute pain in the neck I am to live with.February 19, 2014 12:44 am at 12:44 am #1017776
Best Bubby, what did you think the title was?February 19, 2014 1:43 am at 1:43 am #1017778abbybar33Participant

Question: Are you a regular follower of the coffee room? Or did someone say “Hey, Rocky! They’re talking about u in the coffee room!” and u came to check it out?February 19, 2014 2:03 am at 2:03 am #1017780P2TMMember
I was at all three weddings. I even marched down at one. Yashi and Pember is the real deal. He is the REAL Rocky Zweig. I will attest to it!February 19, 2014 3:24 am at 3:24 am #1017781
Actually – I never really READ the title at all, just saw Popa’s question and answered it. That will teach me to assume.
I think we should invite Mordechai Schmutter to join in, and have dueling columnists. Dave Barry is welcome, too. I would add in my 2 cents, but with the cost of inflation it wouldn’t be worth much.February 19, 2014 4:55 am at 4:55 am #1017782
Hey, P2TM; thanks for sticking up for me. You’re fast becoming my favorite kid sister!February 19, 2014 4:58 am at 4:58 am #1017783
Hodulashem: Someone in shul told me I was being discussed. So I figured, hey! I’ve finally hit the big time, I better go check it out!February 19, 2014 6:32 am at 6:32 am #1017784
Discussed? Or argued?February 19, 2014 1:46 pm at 1:46 pm #1017785

no, just googling ability.February 23, 2014 8:15 pm at 8:15 pm #1017796
I never have hidden my age. I am thankful to B”H have reached 62, and hope it is truly middle age.
And with all these affirmations of being the REAL RZ, I feel like I am in an episode of “To Tell the Truth” or “What’s My Line?” For those who do not own a TV, or whose parents were in diapers in the 1950s and 1960s, ignore the above.February 23, 2014 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #1017797
Oomis: What’s so bad about living in good health to the ripe age of 130+?
May HaShem grant you a long, productive, fulfilling life.February 24, 2014 5:01 am at 5:01 am #1017798

Amein and thanks, Mom12. You, too. (I’ll settle for 100 – I’m not greedy).February 24, 2014 4:20 pm at 4:20 pm #1017801
Why did you have to write a nonhumorous letter the week that I was in brooklyn and read it?
I understand why you wnated to write it,but why this week?February 24, 2014 7:18 pm at 7:18 pm #1017802
NO Oomis, don’t settle for anything less.
I once heard a shiur from Rav Mattisyahu Solomon Shlita where he says that “life” is defined by something one cannot have enough of. Imagine, he says, an old man, healthy and of sane mind, with full mental capacity. He makes a party for his family and friends “I had enough of life, tomorrow I’m dying”. We generally don’t hear such stories. One want life FOREVER! It’s an inborn mechanism HaShem ingrained into all living beings, to preserve themselves “naturally”.
So No, May you live till (past) 140. Productive and useful, healthy and happy good years. (then come back for another brocho “Hey great great great great grandchildren, someone 80 years ago gave me a brocho for long life, in the CR… let’s go find..”)February 24, 2014 7:38 pm at 7:38 pm #1017803
Best Bubby; Don’t forget “I’ve got a secret.”February 24, 2014 9:09 pm at 9:09 pm #1017804
LF. from your mouth…etc. etc. Thank you. Hope Hashem agrees.
Y&P (why do I suddenly feel like I need to go shopping???), WHO does not remember I’ve Got a Secret and Beat the Clock (hosted by Bud Collier – the original voice of Superman on the radio)? Now THOSE were game shows (Password was my favorite, though).February 24, 2014 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #1017805TalmidchochomParticipant
Where did you receive your formal training in how to be obnoxious?February 24, 2014 11:01 pm at 11:01 pm #1017806
I suppose you’re addressing little me. And the answer is RIGHT HERE! It generally takes about 1 – 2 years to complete the full course, in-depth training.
Course includes watching as suspicions, accusations arise between members, between staff. Watching (in horror, or other, in fascination) as one member engages another in dialog. The tone, the words (WORDS?!?), the fire, the (holy, wholly, holey) smoke. Oh. It’s called conversation. There’s a special dictionary for those endearing titles used here. After 1 – 2 years one get certified…February 25, 2014 12:06 am at 12:06 am #1017807
After 1 – 2 years one get certified… “
After a couple of years here, I think I might be certifiable…February 28, 2014 7:54 pm at 7:54 pm #1017808

Hey, I invented true obnoxiousness, way back in 1297 when I spoke to my teacher in a way that made him freeze for a week, just standing there in the top of the tree he’d climbed while running from me. He thanked me afterward for the only time he’d been able to rest in years.March 14, 2014 4:23 am at 4:23 am #1017812I. M. ShluffinParticipant
K, Rocky, I’ve got a question for you. When Moshiach comes, will I still be able to post in this CR? Will all the moderators be out of a job?March 18, 2014 12:57 am at 12:57 am #1017813
