There was a guy in my kollel who was making avoda zara jokes that I found really distasteful. He compared Hillary Clinton’s remaining supporters to Roman polytheists, and stuff like that. He also said that it’s muttar to scoop a bagel. So I punched him through the window.March 3, 2017 1:53 am at 1:53 am #1222095
RebYidd – A guy in your kollel who you punched through the window???
What is this – a coed kollel?March 3, 2017 5:01 am at 5:01 am #1222096
Isn’t a kollel for boys only?
What’s wrong with scooping a bagel? I did that when I was a kid to make cubes with the squishy bread. The cubes tasted better then unsquished bagel.
It’s only muttar to punch a boy if it’s fruit punch and you’re his husband, sometimes.March 3, 2017 5:17 am at 5:17 am #1222097
I said I punched someone out the window for scooping bagels and making jokes about polytheism, and your problem is that you think my gender doesn’t fit well in this story? Priorities, people. Instead about worrying about unimportant details like that you should be wondering how it happened that a person who thinks it’s okay to scoop bagels made it into kollel!March 3, 2017 6:34 am at 6:34 am #1222098
Lol RebYidd23 you are fun 🙂March 3, 2017 8:31 am at 8:31 am #1222099
If you think one of the criteria for being in Kollel is not scooping bagels shows how shallow some people are. This thread should be shut down now.March 3, 2017 10:10 am at 10:10 am #1222100
Well that’s the point – if it’s a coed kollel, that answers the question, doesn’t it?!!March 3, 2017 2:57 pm at 2:57 pm #1222101
Note the T. Also, people who scoop bagels are horrible people and should not be allowed to learn in the same kollel as other people because they are a bad influence.March 3, 2017 6:36 pm at 6:36 pm #1222102
Rebyidd23: sorry but I am not a “horrible person” since I sometimes scoop out a bagel. However, if you think this is a terrible avla I will make sure not to be meshadech with you and your family.March 3, 2017 7:33 pm at 7:33 pm #1222103
Are you currently in kollel? Did you recently get punched through a window?March 3, 2017 8:06 pm at 8:06 pm #1222104MenoParticipant
So I punched him through the window
I’m not clear.
Did you punch him so hard that he was launched through a window?
Or did you punch through a window and subsequently hit him?
Because there’s a big difference.March 3, 2017 8:54 pm at 8:54 pm #1222105
No I am not in Kollel….March 3, 2017 10:10 pm at 10:10 pm #1222106
How do you scoop a bagel?
What if you eat bagel ice cream? Can you scoop it then?March 4, 2017 10:26 pm at 10:26 pm #1222107
“Note the T.”
What does the T indicate?March 5, 2017 1:38 am at 1:38 am #1222108
LB: IMHO, scooping a bagel is taking out the soft center leaving only the outside crust. This way it makes a neater sandwich. This is also done for Italian heroes.March 5, 2017 2:22 am at 2:22 am #1222109
We don’t talk about such things here. This is a family site, iacisrmma.March 5, 2017 2:35 am at 2:35 am #1222110
Coed kollels on the other hand….
And punching people through windows…March 5, 2017 3:06 am at 3:06 am #1222111
I never said it was a coed kollel. That was your idea, Lilmod Ulelamaid.March 5, 2017 3:06 am at 3:06 am #1222112
iacisrmma: Thank you!!! I’ve never heard/seen such a thing.
So cool 🙂
Why didn’t my college career counselor not tell me about this?
I’d love to be a professional bagel scooper. The chewy outside of the bagel is amazingly delicious. Plus, the soft inside can be recycled for edible dice.March 5, 2017 3:22 am at 3:22 am #1222113
Once the conversation is on such a subject, even though it is extremely awkward and improper to discuss such horrors especially out in the open on a public site, I should though mention that the insides usually go straight to the garbage.March 5, 2017 3:49 am at 3:49 am #1222114
“There was a guy in my kollel”
You want to explain how that’s not a coed kollel? Unless you’re the secretary, janitor, or cook or something like that.March 5, 2017 5:19 am at 5:19 am #1222115
Simple. The narrator is a man.March 5, 2017 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #1222116
rebyidd23: I never said that I don’t eat the “scooped out” part of the bagel.
Either way, people who do this are not “horrible” and I hope that you take a more reasonable approach to your frustrations in the future.March 5, 2017 4:22 pm at 4:22 pm #1222117
Hold on! Not throwing out the parts you take out is not an excuse to mutilate your bagel.March 5, 2017 4:46 pm at 4:46 pm #1222118
I think you need to see a psychotherapist regarding your bagel obsession.March 5, 2017 4:58 pm at 4:58 pm #1222119
Sonny, we don’t talk like that here. Out!March 5, 2017 5:30 pm at 5:30 pm #1222120
Also, I actually can’t tell whether you guys don’t fully get what the T stands for or know what it means and are following it religiously with great skill.March 5, 2017 5:35 pm at 5:35 pm #1222121blubluhParticipant
As as teenager on school vacation days, I davened at a shul in which the a couple of retirees took it upon themselves to fetch bagels and assorted fillings for the weekday morning minyan to boost attendance (and they’d clean up afterwards).
When he could, the rav of the shul would stick around and have his morning coffee with those who weren’t hurrying off to work. Looking back, it was a pleasant, relaxed way for the rav to interact informally with about a dozen of his congregants.
A number of them had the “minhag” of scooping out the bagel innards which they justified as a calorie-saving move.
I’m not sure how many calories were actually saved after adding the fillings (butter, cream cheese, egg salad, etc.), but that’s the only time I can recall seeing people do that.March 5, 2017 5:45 pm at 5:45 pm #1222122🍫Syag LchochmaParticipant
what confuses me is the idea that people scoop the middle and eat the outside. If i was going to eat only one of the two, it would be the middle.March 5, 2017 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1222123
Here’s a solution for you bagel-scooping heathens who do it to save calories: Don’t eat bagels! Or eat fewer bagels.March 5, 2017 8:29 pm at 8:29 pm #1222124
Syag Lchochma: I will be your bagel friend. You can eat the inside and I will eat the outside and all parts of the bagel will be respected.
RebYidd23: Hypotheses about your T…
1. Treat… “T = Treat people how they want to be treated (the platinum rule), not how you want to be treated (the golden rule).” (According to someone named dan who has a website devoted to “great leadership”)
2. Taking… The T in TCB (Taking Care of Business) by Aretha Franklin
…Hopefully your husband or husband-to-be knows or will know better about bagels.
To love RebYidd23 is to honor the solidarity of the bagel with its klippah. There is no klippah actually. It’s all holy. One piece. One peace.March 5, 2017 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm #1222125
“Simple. The narrator is a man.”
Except that she’s not. Unless the moderator who told me that she’s a girl was lying.March 6, 2017 12:24 am at 12:24 am #1222126
You’re still making assumptions.March 6, 2017 12:45 am at 12:45 am #1222127
What assumption am I making exactly?March 6, 2017 12:46 am at 12:46 am #1222128
Maybe RebYidd23 is representing the plaintiffMarch 6, 2017 1:04 am at 1:04 am #1222129
Then the op should have been in quotes.March 6, 2017 1:11 am at 1:11 am #1222130
You’re assuming that RebYidd23 is a person and therefore has a gender. This is not so. The person(s) who type RebYidd23’s posts are people and therefore have gender, but RebYidd23 is an idea, a belief. A mod has confirmed that to the best of his or her knowledge, the person(s) typing RebYidd23’s posts at that time is/are female.
Also, you’re assuming that the OP is a story about one of those persons who type RebYidd23’s posts, not about/by RebYidd23 itself.March 6, 2017 1:27 am at 1:27 am #1222131
Maybe the OP was part of another universe and now RY is talking to us from the other side?March 6, 2017 1:59 am at 1:59 am #1222132YesOrNoParticipant
Maybe it’s the Kollel Food Store,(KFS) or KRM grocery store.March 6, 2017 2:07 am at 2:07 am #1222133
Kollel, not Kollel grocery. And there are numerous potential explanations for what Lilmod clearly sees as a gender discrepancy.March 6, 2017 2:08 am at 2:08 am #1222134
YesOrNo: Wow!!! That’s amazing. There really is a Kollel Food Store and it does work.
So who is the narrator? Omgosh maybe it is Hashem?March 6, 2017 2:19 am at 2:19 am #1222135
yesorno – good one. However, in that case, it’s still coed.March 6, 2017 2:32 am at 2:32 am #1222136
Maybe it was stay-at-home-men-boys-toddlers-infants day at the Kollel Food Store?March 6, 2017 2:37 am at 2:37 am #1222137
I said “my kollel”, not Kollel. I wouldn’t call KFS “my” kollel.March 6, 2017 2:54 am at 2:54 am #1222138
Maybe RY’s account was hijacked by a car thief who decided that he didn’t want her car because it smelled like flowers so he demanded her computing device instead and here we areMarch 6, 2017 3:07 am at 3:07 am #1222139
Maybe you own it.March 6, 2017 4:26 am at 4:26 am #1222140
Are you speaking for yourself or the narrator now?March 6, 2017 4:37 am at 4:37 am #1222141
Both.March 6, 2017 4:45 am at 4:45 am #1222142
So you’re calling the moderator who said that you are a girl a liar?March 6, 2017 5:27 am at 5:27 am #1222143
oh my gosh – have you guys noticed the tags showing up on the upper right? And it looks like anyone can add if they choose to do so.
