    I love Squeak’s thread Post of the Year

    Post of the Year Contest

    However I find it too hard to judge over a year and to get seconded etc.

    So I hereby open as follows: Every Sunday anyone can tell us which post or even thread from the previous week (or earlier) was their favorite “Post of the Week” that week. Whichever one took your imagination or you found helpful or considerate or humorous or meaningful.

    Please begin…

    I don’t know, it just made me laugh. 😀

    I’ll nominate one of the many Squeak posts that appear on his Post of the Year thread for the new Post of the Week (not Post of the Weak) thread:

    Squeak: The fine people of the Asti region of Italy discovered a way to rid themselves of pesky mosquitos. They simply bottle them and sell the bottles to foreigners…

    Or what about this post from feivel from centuries ago (I have been here almost five years now but only posted for last couple) that went something like this:

    This guy came back from a zoo in Australia and whichever picture he showed of his visit he said “that animal is a dangeroo”. “But they cant all be dangeroos” said his friend, “what makes you think its a dangeroo?” He retorted “I dunno, there was a sign on the cages saying ‘These Animals Are Dangerous’.

    its funnier if you spell it dangaroo

    and the sign said “Beware, All The Animals are Dangerous”

    but thanks for the compliment

    SG- thanks, but that line is definitely HTBT. Especially since the post I was responding to has been deleted. Unless you’re just trying to flatter absent posters into making an appearance… good job then, and keep at it!

    HTBT? SYGMB (Sorry You Got Me Baffled). What does that stand for?

    BTW Squeak you have so many posts I could choose from. I also loved your post on

    How To Address Your Mother In Law

    How to address you mother in law:

    This is a tough one. I’d say the problem of how to address her is not nearly as big as the problem of how many stamps do you put on? I mean, I know it goes by weight, and how exactly are you supposed to know her weight? Ask her? No, there’s no doubt that would end up in an underestimate and the deadly Return To Sender!

    Unless your name is not Sender, in which case you have nothing to worry about.

    One of the funniest things I have ever read in the coffeeroom is Zeeskite’s thread which begins:

    How to Add a New Thread

    Zeeskite: I’ve always wondered how they added new topics/threads? Anyone with a clue?

    XXXXX: on top of the four blue threads, to the left, it says ‘add new’. click on it.

    Zeeskite: OK

    coffee addict: how did you just do it without knowing how?

    Apparently, “ein mikra yotzi midei p’shuto” applies here as well

    Correct, judging by the posts. Most of them ARE on the p’shuto ie stating which beverage they prefer. This is what I imagined so I hinted in the OP that there was more to this title/topic that first mets the eye. Many posters would not yet have realized that there are two rbs albeit with slightly different subs – especially as several posters have said they dont even look at who posted what but only read the posts themselves (http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/can-you-explain-to-me-how-you-read-a-thread-in-general-please).

    So rb now has an extra chance of winning your competition…

    SG,

    Actually, I meant the “pshuto shel mikra” as under stood by the “mavinim”, which, I guess, is not actually the pshuto shel mikra.

    DY As usual a very logical post. I maivin the havana that both the maivins and non maivins should have had havana for. I had had the havana before but questioned whether the non maivins had had their havana or not.

    OK back on topic now… Its Sunday so lets have some fresh nominations for Post Of The Week

    The Funniest Purim Costume

    BaalHabooze

    I recall a story I heard once about R’ Yonoson Eibeshitz ZT”L. When he was a little boy he was what we can call a “quite lively” kid. One day he came home from cheder, went straight for the kitchen cabinets, took out a pot and a wooden spoon, and started drumming away like there was no tomorrow. His mother asked him to please stop but he answered ” my rebbi said Mishnichnas Adar Marbim Besimchas’ so I’m being besimcha, and kept on banging away!

    Nothing his mother or other family members could say to make him stop. Finally his father came home and to everyone’s delight little Yonoson put down his wooden spoon. His mother complained to his father about the noisy afternoon they all experienced and Yonoson’s explanation. He approached his son and asked him why did he stop his drumming so suddenly?? So he answered sharply, “my rebbi also taught us “Mishenichnas ‘AV’ (father) mema’atim besimchah!!”

    LOL

    popa_bar_abba

    In honor of Yom Kippur, let’s make fun of people who don’t keep the mitzvos. In this way we will emulate R’ Akiva ?’ ????? ??? ?????? ?????? ?????

    I will start.

    You know the women’s minyanim who want to lein, but they want to pretend they care about halacha, so they don’t say birchas hatorah in the morning so they can say it when they are “called up”.

    So I decided I want to bring korbanos. But there is no beis hamikdash, and I’m not a kohen. So what I do, is that I make shevuos and nedarim, and basically create for myself all the halachos. Like I’ll take a sheep every day, and swear I must bring it with all the halachos of a tamid. I leave out the ones I can’t do, like I say I am allowed to be tamei. On shabbos, I have my goyish neighbor do it for me, since I can’t shecht.

    Anyway, my problem is that this morning during pesukei d’zimrah, I was making my korban todah like I always do, and I forgot that we don’t bring a todah today.

    But I already made it. And I said it would be piggul if I don’t eat it before the end of the zman. And it is too much to eat, and I make it so only I can eat it because I know other people think it’s a joke.

    So can I eat it on yom kippur?

    (This is me doing teshuva before yom kippur for the serious thread I made on tisha b’av.)

    I used to be yeshivish…I used to

    wear black and white, even my

    bedsheets and shower curtains

    were black and white. One pillow

    case was black, the other was

    white. My shoes… were button

    downs. I used to have long tzitzis

    down to my knees. I would tie

    them to my chavrusa’s ankles and

    I wouldn’t untie them until seder

    was over. I used to wear Rabeinu

    Tams… Only Rabeinu Tams. When

    my shveir bought me a new car, I

    drove it through a mobile home to

    give it that “zecher lechurban”

    effect. I also made sure one

    headlight wasn’t working and that

    the gas light would always be on.

    My cat, Yekussiel, had payeos. I

    had him turned into a Fedora..

    with three bows. One of the bows

    was going to be gray, but gray isn’t

    black and white. I wouldn’t eat

    fleishigs because it wasn’t cholov

    Yisroel, but I still managed to get

    cholent stains on my shirt before

    Shabbos mincha. I never took off

    my tzitzis. Don’t worry, I would

    wash them in the shower while

    wearing them, but only lekavod

    Shabbos. I didn’t want to spend

    any time bateling, so I

    bookmarked my Gemara pages…

    ALL my Gemara pages. I wear

    glasses, but I don’t need them. I

    sprained my thumb learning once,

    but to avoid batalah I didn’t

    mention it to my chavrusa until

    after seder, when he asked me to

    untie my tzitzis from his ankles. I

    daven in Yiddish and speak in

    Aramaic.

    Ah, and today’s post of the week goes to WIY, for his work in the area of Superficiality and Shidduchim.

    Funny, we are superficial because we want a slim girl, but the fat girls aren’t superficial in that they cant stop fressing fattening food and monitor their food intake?!

    Yekke, you’re bothered by someone writing an article “without any halachic/hashkafic mekoros”?? That pretty much sums up a lot of the articles in the glossy Jewish publications that have come onto the market in recent years. The Jewish Observer, which contained articles penned by people who were in some cases themselves respected sources of information on Halacha and hashkafa, no longer exists. Presumably because there was no market for a Jewish magazine that lacked colorful photos, recipes, and let’s not forget- fabulous, true-to-life, nail-biting fiction. Every generation gets the manhigim they deserve. Apparently, the same goes for magazines.

    I suggest this post by velz meshugenar in the ‘letter to chasson’ thread. I don’t know how to link it.

    My dear beloved chosson,

    I cannot believe that we are finally about to embark on our lives together. I am so lucky to be able to marry someone who fit all of the criteria on my checklist, even the part about being tall, which I was embarrassed to tell the shadchan. Well, I really didn’t tell her that because Duvid Weissman wasn’t engaged yet then, and he’s short. But once he was engaged and I knew that I wouldn’t have a shot at his family’s money anymore, I was hoping that you would be tall. Not only that, when I showed my friends pictures of you before the vort they are all so jealous! Even after we got engaged you got me the best jewelry, better than any of my friends got from their chassanim. Except for the earrings, which I left home when I would get together with them.

    Anyway, this is totally bashert, and I hope that you are as excited as I am. I want you to know that I plan to have a TON of shalom bayis and as my kallah teacher and rebbetzin both advised me, I am not going to try to be your mashgiach so you are going to have to be very careful to be on top of your own ruchnius. Like no missing shachris or seder or anything, because if you do, it won’t be my place to say anything and then it will ruin our shalom bayis, which I may have mentioned is going to be AMAZING, or at least better than Ruchel and her husband Yanky’s, which is going to be hard because they really seem to get along.

    Anyway, I have to go because I need to get my nails done so that they will be ready for the re-doing before the wedding. I am getting them done in baby powder white with a tiny tint of pink so that my gown will look whiter.

    Toodles,

    Your beloved Chana Pretzel
