    Popcorn sticks to my teeth. But I like mailboxes now. Mailboxes are cool.

    Oh my gosh — most of the jokes I know, I read here in the last couple of years! 😀 (Am I correct there’s a joke somewhere in here about how Obama’s limo driver “killed the <i>ason</i>”?)

    Here’s a joke I’ve been dying to share:

    Did you hear about those new Beatles T-shirts Ringo’s been selling? They’re 50% Linen and 50% McCottony. 😉

    All you need are jokes, jokes, jokes are all you need.

    Do you regenerate like a certain time-traveling Gallifrey native?

    @Veltz Meshugener — LOL! 😀 If anything, I would theoretically need ice coffee beforehand (although that might just make my shidduch more inclined to drink afterward because I’d be so hyper)!

    Good luck, Vogue! Do you plan on wearing them in shul? I hope they’re comfortable for you.

    @mr. Mustard — Oh, I hope Sir Paul does too! (What a fitting username, btw.)

    @charliehall — So I’ve heard…. I think it also had something to do with England and Israel not being on such great terms back then….

    @lakewood001 — there’s a long video on YouTube of two chassidish men performing classic rock like Pink Floyd, the Beatles, and others, along with some nice Jewish music in a mall in Yerushalayim. So it definitely sounds like practically everyone’s heard of the Beatles! 😀

    On a slightly unrelated subject, what does everyone think of the tribute bands? I was amazed by a performance by a group that calls themselves “The Fab Four.” For once, you could actually recognize which of the lads each guy was pretending to be!

    This thread immediately made me think of the “bad dates” scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark….. 🙂

    Lace on a kittel? Seriously? 😀

    Okay, I’ll have to pay more attention to what people are wearing this Yom Tov (not that I’m going to pop my head over the mechitzah)!

    I’ve always associated lace as being on girls’ clothes, but I don’t see why it can’t be on a kittel, even if it sounds so … so … unusual. 🙂

    I read the OP, (but I’m too lazy to read everything that’s been discussed until this point) and I think that we should be able to tolerate how others live, even if it’s not your hashkafa, so long as they don’t push whatever they’re doing that you’re not comfortable on you.

    @wallflower — I had the privileged of meeting Mr. Walder while visiting my Israeli friend’s school. Alas, I was surprised (and dismayed) that he didn’t seem to speak English, and it was then that I realized, yes, his books are translated. >.<

    When I was young, I loved reading an advice column in a secular kids’ magazine — I learned later on that the author never accepted reader submissions, and instead wrote her column based on what she thought kids would want to know. I felt a bit … dismayed, because I hate when authors *think* they know how young peoples’ minds work, but then fail epically.

    From what I understand, I think Mr. Walder’s stories are inspired by the things kids tell/send him, but he adapts the events into story form and I would guess that he would have to add details so that it’s more interesting…. Still, I’ve found what I’ve read of his to be very inspiring. I liked the book about the Israeli boy who came to America and had to deal with being different….

    @middle Path — Yup, Geddy Lee’s parents were Jewish immigrants from Poland. 🙂 He’s got a very inimitable voice! B”H we’ve got so many talented people in our nation.

    But the main reason why I’m resurrecting this thread is that I wanted to say … I’m a Beatles fan too!

    Well, your original post clearly stated that you *wear* them, so … OH MY GOSH THAT PERSON WEARS KNIVES!!!! 😀

    Well…. If someone were trying to (C”V) break into my house while wearing 9-inch heels, I suppose I’d hear their click-clacking footsteps pretty quickly, so I’d recommend sticking to 4-inch heels if that’s what you’ve got in mind to do. 😛

    Are they comfortable because your feet get so numb you don’t feel the pain? 😀 (On a more serious vein, I went to the shoe store to get Yom Tov shoes a few months back, and my eyes bugged out at the heels — my feet were practically screaming, “Don’t put us in those, Bookworm120!” And when I tried on a pair for laughs, I realized why my feet felt so strongly against the notion!)

    Baruch Hashem! @eclipse — same. May other innocent Jews be granted their freedom as well.

    A fantastic sense of humor, respect of my religiosity, and genuine desire for me to grow as both a student and a person. They weren’t afraid to accept me as I was and use that as a baseline to mold me into my full potential instead of something that I wasn’t and hope to never be.

    Hooray for awesome teachers!
