You can feel better, you got the order wrong. It's actually "Tatty, Mommy, and Hashem"
(Or "Abba, Ima, and Hashem" in the next repetition)

What if they have a Abba and a tatty?

Hashem might not be so proud of them (the Abba and Tatty that is).
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

Is that song as old as the letter from the CH Beis Din regarding STaM standards?
Didn't see a date on the letter, but MMM1 is from 1984 acc to Amazon.

It's hard to describe a conversation that happened 8 years ago. I wasn't insisting while he was trying to valiantly to stop me. Again, a simple explanation like "Would you eat chalav stam knowing there are opinions that say it is halachically acceptable, but according to Lubavitch custom, it is not?" Conversation would have been over.

the difference is lubavitch considers that milk trief vs these parshios of stam can be called 100% kosher according to some opinions. many eiruvim around the world are not according to the baal hatanya opinion and yet lubavitchers don't curse out others who rely on the other opinions that allow certain eiruvim. this is the case here in your own home try to be more mehudar. however, to go and try to get someone to put up mezuzahs who does not usually follow most of the shulchan aruch to put up a $120 mezuzah on each door is crazy

When I asked sofrim about A"R ksav mezuzos one told me that his range from $100 to $500 and to buy the best you can afford.
Shkoyach.

This is an issue whenever someone buys something about which they are not educated, from cars (especially used), to computers, to wine.

I appreciate that you created an account to respond only to my comments, it's great for my ego. Anyhow, you're making my point. Chalav stam is treif for us. Even though there are plenty of people who are matir it, it is treif for us. Same thing with these mezuzos. They are relying on obscure/not-relied-upon opinions to say it is kosher l'chatchila. But for a Lubavitcher, it is not acceptable. If he would have said, "would you use a non Alter Rebbe eruv to carry?" I would have had my answer.

Dan L'kav Zchus - Abba is his father and tatty is his step father (or vice versa).

Obviously. You canít biologically have both an Abba and a Tatty. The closest you can get is if one of the parents identifies as an Abba and one as a Tatty. Parent dysphoria.

Way to bring back up this topic  ::)

Not entirely true. Although to be fair, their reason being:
this is the case here in your own home try to be more mehudar.

My bad. I stopped at the end of the list and was looking at the top for the date.
MMM1?

Amazon?
Marvelous Middos Machine Episode 1, the album the song being quoted is from. Amazon lists the original release date as March 5, 1984 on the product page.

Not sure I get why you asked which is older, but it seemed like you though the letter was older.

Thank you!
The amaratzus here is astounding.

Some people 'round here are just too young to posses this important knowledge.

Too young? My 7 and 5 year olds know most of the words to that one, and much of the rest of the album and series.

Marvelous Middos Machine is indeed a wonderful classic for all ages.

However, I just noticed that the aforementioned letter from the Beis Din of Crown Heights was issued a very short while before Hey Teves 5747, its impact might have been drowned in the Mashke.
