Is it ever a reverse situation where the husband is a middle squeezer and the wife squeezes from the bottom?
yes
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

Can we have an illustrated or photo dictionary? I never heard of Rashi and Mar Zutra in this context (though I can imagine the meaning).

With the use of possessive apostrophes in an underwear conversation, I humbly request there be no photographic evidence shared.

Reminds me of the story of someone walking into a shul on time for Shachris, but he doesn't have his tefillin, so he picks up a pair laying on the shelf. When someone says to him "sir, these are Rabbenu Tam's tefillin" he responds "don't worry, I'll be done by the time he comes".

Alternative version-

Store owner: Do you want Rashi's tefillin or Rabbeinu Tam's tefillin?

Buyer: I don't want no second-hand tefillin! Give me new ones!

Somehow reminds me of this one:


Test to see if you're a real photographer

Imagine you're walking through a forest and you come across a perfect scene: an idyllic lake surrounded by perfect meadow, mist rising off its surface, birds chirping... but there's a man drowning.

You could only choose one: take a picture or save the man's life.

What lens do you use?
Wide angle low aperture

For a second I thought this was supposed to be a play on the word "time".

Shidduch that was saved in the zchus of not speaking the שפה הטמא

Someone his father is a belzer and his mother is a satmar told as following8,
His father learned in EY as a bochur and retuned and met his FIL, he was asked by his then future FIL if he speaks עברעיש Not knowing what that even means he responded no not at all he doesn't even know what it means, and they got engaged
Now imagine if he would be asked if he speaks עיברית This shidduch wouldn't have a chance

"Will she be willing to shave off her hair after the chupah?" She was not chassidish, only sort of heimish. I said no, without asking her. I told the girl after she was happily married to someone else for several years. She thanked me enthusiastically.

Real question:

What would you do if you found $1,000 lying in the street Shabbos morning?

Side comment: I love how @ExGingi's disdain for middle squeezers shines through his posts.
If you don't care why would you comment?
