Stumbled across this thread, looking for something else, and felt it needs a bump (some of the lines were very funny).
Here’s a fresh one, courtesy of my son:
Truisms, that only we know –
# 1 – The cell phone that rings during shemona esrei, will ring again in 1 minute (because the caller is just as obnoxious as the person they are calling, and will call 5x in a row, if they don’t get thru on the 1st ring)
# 2 – The person who’s phone rings (for the 2nd time) is SHOCKED that the phone keeps ringing. (Idiot, don’t you get it.. all your friends / family are just as obnoxious as you are, and will not stop calling you till they get thru to you. Duh.)January 18, 2012 12:36 am at 12:36 am #890819oomisParticipant

If it’s even a cm. less than 3 inches below the knee, you’re too modern.
If it’s even a cm. more than 3 inches below the knee, you’re nebby.
Shidduch resume says 5 feet tall.

My cousin actually is. It was very annoying for her, dealing with the skepticism that someone could actually be 5 feet exactly.March 27, 2012 9:45 pm at 9:45 pm #890824bptParticipant
