Quote of the Day

My younger daughter looked up from her breakfast cereal this morning and said to me:

"People think that skunks are dumb, stinky animals- don't they realize that Hashem gave them that smell to protect themselves! They are not dumb they are very cute. If I was a skunk and people said that to me I'd spray 'em all!"

Amen sister.

I love it when kids say really random things like that

That's great. My dog once told a skunk it was dumb and stinky. Boy, was he ever sorry.

Amen sister.

Shouldn't that be "Amen daughter"? ;-)

Spoken like someone who has never had an encounter with a wild skunk.

I was camping last year with my wife, sister-in-law, her husband and their kids. They were all away from the camp site and I was sitting reading a book and just 'hanging out.' The night before part of dinner stuck to one of the cooking untensiles and was 'peeled' off and thrown in to the high grass just off the main camp site. I saw something moving around about 20 feet from me. And there it was a skunk. (This particular state park we found out later is well known for their skunk populations.)

I think they are cute, but not particularly bright. (With the exception of Pepe La Pue)

haven't you ever red
Many many years ago
When I was twenty three,
I got married to a widow
Who was pretty as could be.

This widow had a grown-up daughter
Who had hair of red.
My father fell in love with her,
And soon the two were wed.

This made my dad my son-in-law
And changed my very life.
My daughter was my mother,
For she was my father's wife.

To complicate the matters worse,
Although it brought me joy,
I soon became the father
Of a bouncing baby boy.

My little baby then became
A brother-in-law to dad.
And so became my uncle,
Though it made me very sad.

For if he was my uncle,
Then that also made him brother
To the widow's grown-up daughter
Who, of course, was my step-mother.

Father's wife then had a son,
Who kept them on the run.
And he became my grandson,
For he was my daughter's son.

My wife is now my mother's mother
And it makes me blue.
Because, although she is my wife,
She's my grandmother, too.

If my wife is my grandmother,
Then I am her grandchild.
And every time I think of it,
It simply drives me wild.

For now I have become
The strangest case you ever saw.
As the husband of my grandmother,
I am my own grandpa!

Can someone please explain Amshi to me? He's got to be the craziest person out there. He has such "eclectic" tastes, is obviously quite bright, and knows the strangest things. Totally fascinating!

Ah, Chavi Kaufmann must be an incipient Slifkinite. You should be proud!
