    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.

    I want a sufganiya.

    How’d you react had he sat down next to you, tapped your hand, and asked his question?

    I would have started, and looked up and said, what?

    Dunno about any bagels, but it looks like I finally vanquished your subtitle. ^_^

    Ah, so you did, so you did.

    I’ll have to scheme and conspire to set this straight.

    So you didn’t recognize me. I had to be sure.

    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.

    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.

    To be fair (to me): the reason I ignored him is because I thought he was a lunatic. He sounded like a lunatic.

    Furthermore, which normal person already knows the English date of Purim? Even worse, sounds like he was already pregaming.

    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.

    Just wondering Pops- Was this thread inspired by a post on an “out of the box” blog?

    uneeq: I don’t read many blogs, so nope.

    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.

    Veltz Meshugener said, “Jews want to connect with other Jews and you call it names and mock it. “

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