Two Euphemisms I Invented this Morning in the Shower

Don't say, "He trims his beard." Nope, he "engages in scissors-facilitated picking."
Nobody shaves. They just "engage in extreme trimming."

Is there any way you can make it that one can subscribe to comments without leaving a comment?

Or is it possible to get comments in google reader?

You better believe it-my niece Chaya just won't let go! I suppose it's a kaporoh for my having pulled all those girls' braids in school...

i like endofworld's the best!
i feel for you boys who have been attacked by children. it's a lot easier for a girl to get her hair out of reach. but then again, you don't have to be worried that some child is going to grab your earring and then just keep pulling... ooh, that's not a pretty sight.

All goyish children are afraid of my beard. All frum kinderlach like my beard. Children of fried-out parents like my beard proportional to the validity of their mother’s Jewishness.

(I think I should provide my services to Israeli rabbinate. But then again…)
