    We just had Rosh Chodesh Adar

    Which tells us that Purim’s not far

    So let us restart

    For those posters most smart

    This limerick thread repertoire

    Of costumes original and funny

    Like Mr Bean or of Buggs Bunny

    Or a shlach monos idea

    You saw in Korea

    Or good ways to bring in some money

    Good Purim Torah we will appreciate

    And the author of it you should indicate

    (This important feedback

    Brings Moshiach as payback)

    If unsure then please could you estimate

    Make your own Purim categories

    Of humor or your Purim stories

    We look forward indeed

    To your limericks to read

    But if you can not then no worries

    Mishenichnas Adar marbim besimcha

    We’re soon gonna lein the Megilla

    Then please do not flunk

    The best time to be drunk

    As is brought down several times in Kabbalah

    Will you dress as a Mexican wall

    Or similar ideas of gall

    But ensure there’s decorum

    Within every quorum

    While davening under your shawl

    Cause Purim’s extremely Holy

    So every Tefillah say it slowly

    And you can achieve

    More than you can believe

    No Tzaddik has the Monopoly

    Your davenning nissim you can tell us

    Without risking making us jealous

    How something you needed

    Thru tefillah you succeeded

    To avodas Hashem it will propel us

    Shticky Guy

    The best wines for purim (or seder night for that matter) are dry or semi dry wines. With sweet wines, the sugar goes to your head and makes you feel nauseous

    Lol avram but maybe it was one of his siblings and not him. He is one of 57 you know and some of them look very similar.

    My question is whether he will be sober enough for the trial. He is always ‘on the bottle’ when I see him and I have witnesses who would swear in court that it’s very difficult to separate him from his bottle, especially if it is a glass bottle

    Good question but just translate ?? ?????: We are thanking for, among other things, ??? ??????? ????? ???????? – for the battles which you carried out on behalf of our forefathers, where ‘? fought for us and helped us win many battles like it says ?’ ???? ???.

    For some reason which I do not know (can someone help me out here?) there seems to be an ???? on ????? to mention other battles and ???? that befell ??? ????? and not only in ?? ?????.

    I mean, if you look at the famous ????? song of ???? ??? carefully, it has no special connection with ????? more than ???? ??? ?????/ ???? ????? / ??? / ??? / ???? who are all also mentioned. The ????? are just one in a list of various troubles that we have endured. Why we only say it on ????? I do not know! Do you know?

    You don’t really have to be quick

    To write out a short limerick

    So Shopping613

    It’s as easy as can be

    And really is not a big ‘shtick’

    You’re a poster with great discerning

    Show us how a limerick award you’re earning

    You can be fantastic

    With the grace of a gymnastic

    Real soon some great limericks you’ll be churning!

    You’re like the schoolboy who lives in Japan

    His limericks they never would scan

    And when they asked him but why

    “Get up” he shouted at him, “what’s with davening?”

    So his son replied “Sorry dad but I’m being ????? the ???? of ???? now and ????? ????? ???? ?? ?????”.

    So the father pushed the son hard till he fell out of bed with a bump. “Why did you do that” complained the son. “Why, did it hurt you?” asked his father. “Yes” replied the son. Said the father “Ah so now you are ????? and a ????? is ???? from ????! So now you can go to Shul!”

    ?? ???? ?? ????!

    You’ll never believe this but last night we went shopping and guess what – she decided to try writing a shopping list. I was shocked but she said she’ll see how it goes. So off we went.

    And at the store she put her hand in her pocket to get the list and her face dropped. She had left it behind! I’m serious. Can you believe it? She did not even remember to bring it! You simply cannot rely on women for anything! So we had to do it all from memory.

    And later when we checked the list, how many things do you think we had forgotten?

    None. Zero. Nill. Gurnisht. Nikto.

    (ps @notasheep since I had my kids, my memory is also not what it used to be… and I’m a guy!)

    Wishing all posters, readers, floaters, trolls and of course mods a fantastic ??? ???!!!

    Don’t rely on me for your ????? ??????? reminder!

    Shticky Guy

    Leave your watch/clock at home. It works!

    This is similar to my well tried and tested method.

    The more you watch the time, the slower time moves. But if you haven’t looked at a clock for a while then oh wow another 2 hours have passed.

    My tip is to virtually not look at the clock the entire day BECAUSE THERE IS NO NEED TO!

    My time schedule on yom kippur does not consist of hours and minutes but stages of davenning. I say to myself the time now is eg early part of shacharis or middle of musaf or towards the end of mincha etc. This way I find the day moves much quicker.

    If this tip helps anyone else then it was worth the time to post it.

    Wishing everyone a ??? ????? ???? and an easy fast!

    I agree. YWN has adverts for womens clothing on mannequins that clearly display the female form. Totally inappropriate for a yeshiva site.

    Also, when YWN radio plays a song that I do not like I flick over to one of several similar sites. One of them, Jewish Hits, had an ad advertising the Mormons! It said Click here to improve… I immediately emailed them approx a month ago questioning this and said if I do not receive a reply I will delete their bookmark, spread the word and bln never visit them again. And guess what – I am still waiting for a reply. Makes me wonder…

    While I wait for an answer to my question above, I’ll share with you a question that I had while learning ??? last week. ??? says on ?? ??? that although the ??? flattened all mountains in front of them, but 3 mountains remained: ?? ???? ?????, ??? ??? ?????? ???, ??? ??? ?????? ???? (these are not in chronological order).

    What about other mountains that we know remained?

    For example the mountains surrounding ?? ???? that we know were arguing over which of them should be the one the ???? would be given on? (Perhaps we can suggest that once ??? ????? arrived there the others were flattened?).

    And what about the mountains that ??? himself brings later that the ??????? were hiding in to attack ??? ????? and both mountains squashed together and killed them as ??? ????? passed thru? (Can we maybe say that they were kept to protect ??? ????? and even parted after so that ??? ????? would see what had happened and this is why they remained?)

    But why did ??? not mention that these also remained standing? He says only 3 stayed.

    And what about ?? ?????? + ?? ???? ?

    I know this is a little late but I forgot to post this a couple of weeks ago.

    At the end of ??? ?? is the ???? of ???. Many ?????? for example the ??? ?????? say that ????? has the ?????? of ???? cuz ????? is 600, plus the 8 threads and 5 knots equals 613.

    The problem is that all 3 times that ????? is mentioned, it is spelled ???? which only comes to 603.

    Can anyone provide a good explanation? I heard a pshetl, but I’m looking for a real answer.

    Read each sentence in sequence. Please don’t skip any steps or the mathematics will be thrown off.*****************************

    Take the following test mentally. Don’t write down answers and don’t shout them out. *****************************

    1. Pick a number from 2 to 9. It can be 2 or 9, or any number in-between. *****************************

    2. Take your number and multiply it by 9. *****************************

    3. That should give you a 2 digit number. Take these 2 digits and add them together. *****************************

    4. Take the resulting number and subtract 5 from it. *****************************

    5. Take that number and correspond it to the alphabet, numbering the letters. A=1, B=2, C=3, D=4 and so on. *****************************

    6. Take your letter, and think of a country that begins with that letter. *****************************

    7. Take the last letter in the name of that country, and think of an animal that starts with this letter. *****************************

    8. Now, take the last letter in the name of that animal, and think of a color that starts with this letter. *****************************

    Lol. However, threads about the troll hador, especially those mentioning him by name in the thread name, surely encourage him to continue in his sick endeavours.

    Incidentally, OOC could also mean:

    Out of Character – but he does not have one

    Operations Control Center – yes, definitely for control freaks who love to control conversations and threads

    Original/Obscure Character Creator – he’s the #1 character creator

    Ontario Chamber of Clowns – he could well be the founding member

    Orange County Criminals – self explanatory

    Office of Citizen Complaints – set up in response to constant trolling

    Order of the Caribbean Community – who knows where he comes from?

    ICOT, I understand that some threads are deemed inappropriate and not approved.

    I also (usually) understand why threads sometimes need closing after they go down a certain path.

    But I never understood threads where the OP is approved but the thread is then immediately closed. Especially ones litoeles harabim such as the one you mention.

    Would the esteemed, beloved and respected Mod reading this post, or any others drinking coffee with him in the Mods staff room care to enlighten us? Thank you.

    not sure why it was closed. I will reopen it, and if the mod who closed it decides it should be closed they can reclose it.

    in reply to: What exactly did we get on Shavuos? #1018395
    Shticky Guy

    Yaakov Avinu and Moshe Rabbeinu didn’t wear hats and jackets, either…

    Of course they didnt. That could have led to machlokes, with future doros being medayek exactly what they wore: bent up or bent down hat, borsalino, brandalino, stetson or roche, black, grey or navy, wide or narrow brim, high or low ribbon, with or without the brand name on the bow, gekneitched, sameter, beaver, turban, fez, beret, sombrero, bowler hat, perhaps Moshe wore a bush hat?

    As to their suits, was it a langer rekel, a frak, with buttons on the back or not, a beketcher, a saville row suit, right over left, left over right, a robe etc. etc.

    So instead they left us in no doubt at all as to their true affiliation, and as my kids school picture precisely and accurately showed a couple of years ago, Moshe Rabbeinu proudly and decisively led us out of Mitzraim… wearing a Streimel!!

    Shticky Guy

    I think that all you need to transition from milchigs to fleishigs is kinuach and hadacha, no?

    And a change of tablecloth (says mishnah berurah quoted in the OP).
