Popa was sitting in starbucks (the one wherein he originally met midwesterner, and wherefrom he still wants a sufganiya).
And reading an article on his computer (about framing transactions). And some lunatic comes by and shouts at him: “Purim is February 23rd, right?”.
So popa ignores him as if he doesn’t realize he is talking to him. So he yells louder: “purim is February 23rd, right?”.
So popa still ignores him, as if he doesn’t realize he is talking to him. So he leaves.
Popa 1, lunatic bagler 0.

How’d you react had he sat down next to you, tapped your hand, and asked his question?January 1, 2013 8:49 pm at 8:49 pm #917110
I would have started, and looked up and said, what?January 1, 2013 9:36 pm at 9:36 pm #917111OneOfManyParticipant
Dunno about any bagels, but it looks like I finally vanquished your subtitle. ^_^January 1, 2013 9:58 pm at 9:58 pm #917112
Ah, so you did, so you did.
I’ll have to scheme and conspire to set this straight.January 1, 2013 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #917113squeakParticipant
So you didn’t recognize me. I had to be sure.January 1, 2013 11:07 pm at 11:07 pm #917114
I’m actually more likely to ignore people whom I do recognize.
For example, do you ignore the guy sitting next to you in shul? Not usually.
Do you ignore your brother? Maybe.
Do you ignore your wife? Definitely.January 1, 2013 11:29 pm at 11:29 pm #917115Veltz MeshugenerMember
I don’t understand the bageling hate. Jews want to connect with other Jews and you call it names and mock it. Maybe kiruv needs a few less free trips to Israel and a little more indulgence of bageling.January 1, 2013 11:34 pm at 11:34 pm #917116
To be fair (to me): the reason I ignored him is because I thought he was a lunatic. He sounded like a lunatic.January 1, 2013 11:36 pm at 11:36 pm #917117Veltz MeshugenerMember
Furthermore, which normal person already knows the English date of Purim? Even worse, sounds like he was already pregaming.January 1, 2013 11:37 pm at 11:37 pm #917118
Even worse, he was wrong. I looked it up afterward because I got all scared that I would have vacation on pesach which would ruin a vacation.January 2, 2013 12:56 am at 12:56 am #917119midwesternerParticipant
Ummmm, remember the condition? Offer still stands!!January 2, 2013 12:17 pm at 12:17 pm #917120uneeqMember
Just wondering Pops- Was this thread inspired by a post on an “out of the box” blog?January 2, 2013 4:26 pm at 4:26 pm #917121
uneeq: I don’t read many blogs, so nope.January 2, 2013 4:39 pm at 4:39 pm #917122uneeqMember
Me neither. Interestingly enough, I stumbled on a blog the other day that explained to me what bageling is (never heard of it before), and in the comments it was suggested that the Israeli version of it should be called sufganiot.
Hence my curiosity.January 2, 2013 10:29 pm at 10:29 pm #917123MDGParticipant

From the way PBA described it, the bageler sounds a bit too forward. You can’t mekarev someone who is not going to listen.
