The Hottest Thing Since Sliced Bread
I figured if Barack Obama and John Kerry could have a Yarmulka with their names on it, why not me?! So, after hearing that Tuvia's in Monsey does embroidery on the spot, I decided in the store that I would get myself a nice big one with my name on it. I was there anyway. This is the finished product: a Size 10 (you heard right) Russishe/Litvishe Yarmulke in all its glory. I'm of the opinion that even if you do advertise your product or service, you still need to do it in an authentic manner, hence the traditional headcovering, and not a more modern one. From what I hear the owner of the above-mentioned establishment is no fan of Chabad, and he told me that his brother is in charge of Mechon Mishnas Reb Aron, so I wonder if he'd be happy that he supplied me with the Yarmulka.
Which gets me thinking: maybe I can have these mass-produced and sell them to my loyal readers for a nice profit? Throw in a T-shirt, perhaps, and make it a set? What do you guys say? Maybe I can have the shirt and yarmulka have "I read Circus Tent" emblazoned all over it! That would make some kind of statement.
