There are no such thing as silly threads. Some just need to be nurtured until the true potential is realized.
Same goes for kids, spouses, shidduch suggestions, ect. They may look lame, but with a little bit of prodding, they can shine like a 2011 penny!

Zeeskite, I don’t think I know you. I was just making a joke. (Which you may have realized, but I don’t want you to get nervous and think your identity is known to me.)
I’m an introvert, remember? I harldy know ANYONE. And I like it that way.May 17, 2011 1:59 pm at 1:59 pm #967530

Yes. Wolves do. Go ask Little Red Riding Hood!
I still remember this from the “Elter Zeida & Elter Bubbe; Uncle’s & Aunt’s” thread http://www.theyeshivaworld.com/coffeeroom/topic/elter-zeida-elter-bubbe-uncles-aunts
“What should the kinderlach call their elter zeida and bubbe’s? Simply Zeidy and Bubby? How will they differentiate between all the Elter Zeidy’s and the regular Zeidy’s?”
Does it really matter?
FWIW, my kids refer to their great-grandmothers as “Grandma” and have no problem differentiating them from their actual grandmothers.
The Bed-Stuy Account
Wolf: When they talk to you about “Grandma”, how do you know which grandma or great-grandma they are speaking of?
no one mentions grandma to the wolf anymore, not after that unfortunate incident with the girl in the red hood.
For those of you unfamiliar with the little red riding hood episode, I’ll paste my version from the above thread. (How many posters do you recognize?):
Shtick on a Stick 🙂
Little red riding hood by YWN poster names:
There was a once a HELPFUL BASMELECH called red riding hood. One day her MOTHER IN ISRAEL told her that her FLATBUSH BUBBIE was not in best HEALTH and was in BED-STUY getting some MNUCHA so she should POPPA over to see her cos she was BORED STIFF.
Walking thru the woods she met a predator who had WOLFISH MUSINGS about eating her.
When she knocked at the door, the WOLF replied HELLO. But TRUTH BE TOLD she had a lot of COMMON SENSE so she realised something was wrong.
‘Are you AT HOME BUBBIE’ she called. ‘OF COURSE’ replied the WOLF, ‘I’m ALWAYS HERE, come in & dont worry, I’m NEVER CAUSTIC’!
But although the wolf put on a SMILE E. FACE, she wasnt fooled cos she was a SMARTCOOKIE.
‘Are you really Grandma?’ she said. DUNNO said the wolf. Who else could I be? I’m not like JOSEPH, an ECLIPSE with hundreds of names you know!
So she thought FEIF UN, I’ll go and check. KEN ZAYN its her. All should be ok cos HASHEM LOVES ME.
Grandma, such big teeth you have she said. OOO-MISS said the wolf its MAMASHTAKAH azoi. You’re stating THE OBVIOUS. Come here and I’ll eat you! So she ran straight home DERECH HAMELECH and lived happily ever after.May 18, 2011 2:33 pm at 2:33 pm #967547

Someone started a ‘a MEANINGFUL thread’, all further (serious) posts – please continue there.May 19, 2011 5:02 pm at 5:02 pm #967557
From the Land of Sil and Ly. There once was a King from the Land of Sil who searched high and low for a bride. No one in his land met his list of requirements. There were plenty of near hits but most were just close misses because they didn’t have everything on the list. Seriously, he looked for years, and just couldn’t understand why with all the lovely ladies in his land of Sil, he couldn’t find someone that was just perfect, someone that had everything on his list. So he sent his emissary to the next land over, the land of Ly.
There was a beautiful princess in the land of LY who was looking to marry, but she too had a list of requirements. Somehow, all the handsome young men in her land came so close but they too were just near hits and close misses. As the years passed by, her sadness grew.
The people in the land of Sil and the land of Ly were all very sad for the King and the princess because they loved them so and wanted them both to be happy and fulfilled but were upset that they were both so stubborn and a bit blinded by their need for perfection.
When the emissary from the land of Sil was greeted by the princess’ emissary from the land of Ly they came up with a perfect solution. They said, why don’t we request that our King and princess try to make some compromises so that both our Lands will be happy and prosper. So they arranged that the King and the Princess should meet. When they met they realized that their lists were not as important as the actual wonderful people they saw in person right before their eyes and they fell in love with one and other and joined their two lands together to become the Land of “Silly”. Not only did the King and Princess marry, they matched up the many wonderful women in the land of Sil with the wonderful men in the land and Ly and the whole community prospered. The End.May 19, 2011 5:14 pm at 5:14 pm #967558
