Herewith a sampling of recent comments under posts, which may prove edifying.
As, indeed, they were to me.

Sombody is spending WAAAAY too much time thinking about unmentionables!

Naughty beast!

[According to recent research, on average men think of sex nineteen times per day, and their job or food about seventeen times. So any time spent thinking about something else, such as for instance French cut briefs, is a healthy change. There is also a textural appeal there - my finger tips wish that instead of merely thinking of such things I would actually do something about it, but it will certainly be quite a while before I wear any French cut briefs, so they'll simply have to seek solace in fingering my fine tobacco.
Do not think of me in French cut briefs. It's unhealthy.]

What eggs concerns, that is why you a shabbos goy to the house must let come. So that the shabbosegg (beshoggeg or not) is not levattulo.
But, while he is there, beware of wicked omelettes.

[Whoever wrote that is trying too hard to sound like they do not speak English as a first language. Dreaming of wicked omelets is NEVER a waste of time.
Please STOP thinking of motzi beitza levatula.]

Really, there is nothing better than the wanton made at home.

[I totally agree.]

Aradeen has left a new comment on your post "BALKAN SOBRANIE - POSTSCRIPT":

I can suggest several hottest adventures to do in Eid. NONE of them involve goats.

[Now that's just plain weird. Have you sought help? And you should know that it is illegal to keep a goat in your apartment in San Francisco. Goats are noble beasts that require the vast expanses of the open veldt, and the rocky mountain ranges. Keeping them cooped up in a studio apartment makes them waste away, pining for their lost freedom.
Oh, wait, I'm thinking of a parrot. Never mind.]



Some of my more interesting readers have rich inner lives. That is not necessarily a bad thing.
Unless it involves eggs or goats in French cut briefs. Stop thinking of such things, please put them out of your head entirely.
The eggs should be curried, and so should the goat - one mild, one spicy.
The French cut briefs are best filled with a college student.
Mild or spicy is not important.
Both are good.

Thought of you the other day while reading this. Blood, Bones, and Butter: The Inadvertant Education of a Reluctant Chef.

Really good.

Hey, what about my comment?! said...

Let us pray also for the perfidious Christians: that Almighty God may remove the veil from their hearts, so that they too may acknowledge the Holy Torah as binding. ('Amen' is not responded, nor is said 'Let us pray', or 'Let us kneel', or 'Arise', but immediately is said:) Almighty and eternal God, who dost not exclude from thy mercy even Christian faithlessness: hear our prayers, which we offer for the blindness of that people; that acknowledging the light of thy Truth, which is the Torah, they may be delivered from their darkness. Through the same Torah which is living and reigning with thee in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Ah, you must be refering to the previous iterations on other posts, which I neglected to approve.

Why did I not?

Well, you had already said that. So the repetition struck me as spammatic.
At least this time you’ve established that you’re not a robot.

And I should mention that praying for Christians, perfidious or otherwise, strikes me as a melacha l’vatula. Besides being singularly pointless.

Prayer for Perfidious Christians said...

Did you recognize the reference?

The back of the hill said...

Good Friday Liturgy.

We just finished Avent and now were getting ready for the Feast of Saint Nicolas. Plus we love and reconize the Torah as the word of G-d. So why mention Good Friday. Thank you for your prayers!

Prayer for Perfidious Christians said...

Yup. Except in reverse, so perhaps Yhtuyil Yadirf Doog? Or Bad Friday Liturgy?

Anonymous, are you serious?

Tayere 'Pray4Perfidy',

Perhaps better to refer to it as 'Black Friday'?

Tayere DovBear reader,

This is what happens when a creative mind that has read too much, knows Latin, and has a gewaldikke talent for DiqDuq Geekery starts fermenting late at night.
I've seen the process before.
