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.

How about we start wearing t-shirts that say, "I am an anonymous blogger"...

"the owner of the above-mentioned establishment is no fan of Chabad,"

Did you see how many sefarim he donated to your shul?!

Did you know he has always donated gift certificates to Chabad organizations?

given discounts to Chabadniks?!

I don't want to be rude, but seeing this reminded me of when I was a kid and got one of those old "Mickey Mouse Ears" beanie hats and had my name stitched on the back, just like the Mouseketeers...

Mottel said...

ASJ That would be great -then people would have to start using other clues to find out who you are . . . Let the sleuth work begin.

The Goye came today and did the honors.

I'm not making money, just thinking out loud. A guy can dream, can't he?

Embarrassed? You should be so lucky.

Mickey Mouse? man, you're oooold.

Isnt it one of the worst aveiros for a lubavitcher not to wear a kipa that doesnt say "yechi"?

Hirshel Tzig said...

if I misjudged Tuvia re: Chabad, then I apologize. I just figured from what I heard, and from him being a long-time Yated advertiser....

Twistelton-Twistelton said...

HT,

You have the wrong idea of Tuvia. Like most the world, he has severe criticisms of much of what Chabad dose. He also recognizes the good they do. The world is not black and white! Even a born and bred snag like me recognizes that. Ideological differences DO NOT have to translate into personal differences!

nobody knocks the yated like tuvia....
about time you chapped a good shmuz with him

Isn't it one of the worst aveiros for Lubavitvh haters like you,not to wear a kipa that doesn't say "putz" on it?

Anonymous said...

Tuvia does not like Chabad, True. But ask him about the Yated, you would think that they were advertising cocain for 1 year olds.

Then again, I have yet to find a jew, misnagid or chasidish, that likes the Yated.

Arthur 11:40:00 AM You must think that all of ortho. judaism are "putz's". After all, is there any kosher jew that hasnt had criticism of the "Kot Hayadua"(translation: "The known cult" (as Rav schach zatzal would call them))?

What is your definition of a "kosher" Jew? If you mean all Shachniks like you and including Maran the great hater himself ,then not only are you petz (get your grammar right.There is no such things as "putz's") but you're also shventz.I also hate to disillusion you but not all of Orthodox Jewery goes along with Maran's vile hatred for not only "Kat Hayiduah" but many other segments of Orthodox Jewery and gedolim ,so go peddle his and your hatred elsewhere.

Talk about vile jew hatred, whew!

(Classic Chabad)

"Talk about vile jew hatred, whew!

(Classic Chabad)".
Why is this hatred? I'm just describing behavioral patterns.One can be a "Putz" or a"shvantz" and still be likeable.
"Isnt it one of the worst aveiros for a lubavitcher not to wear a kipa that doesnt say "yechi"?"This of course is the highest level of ahavas yisroel.
