Dear hateful unintelligent commenters who feel the need to bash me

screw youSome of you may have noticed the nasty comments from a few individuals lately, you may have also noticed that they go to spam and I approve and respond to them in a good natured way. I do this because most of these comments are just immature and childish, many of you have wondered why I deal with such stupidity and if it bothers me.

It does bother me, but not because some 24 year old kid from Brooklyn who thinks I am making a Chillul Hashem feels the need to tell me to F off, it bothers me because of the lack of intelligence. It bothers me because when you criticize someone it should be in a good thought out manner so it either creates discussion or forces change.

I receive critical emails from people all the time, but most of them are thought out, intelligent, and well intentioned criticisms, its not just people telling me to go screw myself. I actually love critical emails, especially the ones containing mussar (you know who you are) because they cause me to think. I used to just post whatever I wanted to, but now whenever I post I think, Wait a second Mr. Heshy you do realize that 5,000 people are going to read this right? this thought process has completely revamped the way I write and work, mostly for the better.

I have also taken down dozens of posts and videos, thanks to critical emails from fans and critics alike. But stupid comments calling me an asshole or telling me that I am writing for traffic, are completely ridiculous and uncalled for, they dont add anything to the conversation and if anything detract from it, in the same way that unnecessary vulgarity takes away from talented writing. The problem with the immature go screw yourself commenters is that they think the word sex is dirty and that topics of sexual nature are dirty, I definitely try to provoke but dirty humor is way too easy for me, but unfortunately some of you do not understand my humor and hence you tend to dismiss it all and bash me, which is fine, but at least bash me to my face with an email address and a real name. Comment names like Parent in NY and Heshy is pervert are just so lame and full of douchebaggery.

I fiend some intelligent critics in the comments section, but fortunately for me, most intelligent people get me, which is a good thing.

The other thing I want to address with this grievances post are the people who feel the need to write that I used to be funny but the blog is going downhill which are hilarious because if you look at when I first started, I got these comments every few weeks when someone who decided they didnt like a few posts in a row, that I now sucked. I am so happy that you are telling me to change, but once again, it adds nothing to the discussion and if you want me to write your style of posts, why dont you email me with your ideas, or complaints. To simply say that I am not funny anymore is dumb because it is not a catalyst for change.

If my blog were going downhill I would notice with the lack of traffic, new readers and commentary. I would notice that no one was hiring me to do shows or write for them and I would notice because I received numerous letters telling me so, but nothing of the sort has happened, it has grown and grown and now my readers are becoming more diverse then just the yeshiva rebel crowd, I am so proud that non-observant and even non-Jews readers and Jews of all colors, religious observances and orientations are here taking part in the frum satire experience. I have branded the name frum satire, but just because its in the name doesnt mean I cant talk about things that are not frum, I have branched out and continue to do so.

The guest posts are awesome, and that is not just me talking, that is you. Allowing people to be heard and be discussed is great and all the great blogs revolve around both the creators writing and the people who read the stuff. I myself started doing more guest posts because what I envision for Frum Satire is to have Jews of all stripes writing and collaborating and discussing. There are very few places on the web where a ultra orthodox Jews and totally unaffiliated Jews can gather and discuss just about anything. Almost every Jewish forum or blog is one or the other. Orthodox Jews arent commenting on sites like Jewcy or Jewschool and Reform Jews arent commenting in places like Hashkafa or Yeshiva World News and if they are its completely censored so as not to let everyone voice their opinions in a free open environment.

Guest posts also allow people who read this blog to participate to a greater extent, I am not snobbish about posting here like some of the other sites and soon with a fresh design hope to have some sort of section where contributors and feature writers will have bios with contact information. Some of you may not like this whole guest writing thing, but its for the best and if you dont like it, you dont have to read it. I cant just bust out 4 posts a day on my own, and half of the posts I write never get put up for various reasons.

Trust me I want to write long diatribes and Jewish events, rituals and dating (havent been on a date in months) but when you work full time its not that easy and plus living in New York inhibits my writing more then you would know.

Another feature that I am working on is a forum, an uncensored free forum for everyone to take the discussion to the next level. I have hundreds of old posts that have dead discussion because they are hard to find.

It just seems that people are so unappreciative, when I wrote long posts people said they were too long, short posts, same thing. Sex posts its so bad, frummy posts why do you make fun of the frum. Then the frummies complained that I didnt make fun of the frummies enough and then that I never made fun of Sephardim or that writing about the outdoors wasnt funny enough and so on, but since its usually one or two people I dont change. If I get 10 emails about something then that tells me something, unless you are someone I have spoken to in the past and/or knows me well.

But if you the reader think that wasteful comments from ahters should be removed like they are on most blogs please have your say in the comments below.

    Sure, they bring nothing to the table..

  • Heshy Fried August 2, 2009, 8:54 PM

    Well I think this post was kind of cool – so something good has come out of it and I am working harder to offend so maybe I will piss off some smart people instead of just dumb asses.

  • frum single female August 2, 2009, 9:05 PM

    great post.

  • Parent August 2, 2009, 9:11 PM

    you suck.

    Can you just take down the whole blog…

    …and give it some time….the hits and shows WILL dwindle…its just the curiosity that keeps morons like me coming back…HENCE THIS POST YOU JUST DID!

  • Parent August 2, 2009, 9:12 PM

    TRS – you are surprised??

  • TRS August 2, 2009, 9:12 PM

    Actually, fifth.

  • TRS August 2, 2009, 9:13 PM

    And yes, “Parent”, I am. Hesh is a great guy, and I can’t wait to go to his lchaim.

  • Parent August 2, 2009, 9:14 PM

    Did not say he is not a great guy, but if someone reads him a shidduch and they look him up, would your daughter run screaming?

  • TRS August 2, 2009, 9:15 PM

    I would hope my daughter would have more sense than that…

  • Parent August 2, 2009, 9:19 PM

    sorry buddy – if you did not know him personally for years, I would think he was a TOTAL PERVERSE freak…

    …and I know some girls may have some slim pickin’s, but I’d hold off…

  • bitterwater August 2, 2009, 9:28 PM

    thumbs up!
    parent.. why would anyone run screaming? i’m sure heshy has plenty of admireres .

  • Heshy Fried August 2, 2009, 9:37 PM

    Parent I don’t do the whole shidduch thing – I just write about – all the people who read me shidduchim are fans

  • FrumCurious August 2, 2009, 9:44 PM

    I’d go out with Heshy, personally. 🙂 But I don’t think I’m frummy enough – frum guys run screaming from ME.

    I screen nasty comments as well, just sitting there and talking shit on the internet brings nothing but ignorant garbage to the comment board, and if you’re trying to start a discussion, where’s the intellectual stimulation in that?

  • Phil August 2, 2009, 9:46 PM

    Try to please everyone and you’ll end up pleasing no one. You got your style, anyone that doesn’t like it is free to f*ck off, after all we live in a free country.

    Idiots like parent remind me of those hypocrite dorm counsellors that would confiscate cigarettes, give you the 2 hour speech on how smoking kills, then go and smoke your cigs.

    You got a problem with the content, you don’t have anything constructive to say, why do you come back day after day?

  • doctrauma August 2, 2009, 9:47 PM

    birds of a feather

  • FS - its a 2 way street August 2, 2009, 10:24 PM

    doctrauma did not sound too intelligent either…

    you cant say your fan base has a very high IQ now, can you?

  • Jacob da Jew August 2, 2009, 10:29 PM

    f*k them bitches.

  • Jacob da Jew August 2, 2009, 10:30 PM

    and Parent aka Ed , i know Hesh for over 2 yrs now, he’s da man. So go haz mitzvah nite now and shut the fuck up.

  • FS - its a 2 way street August 2, 2009, 10:33 PM

    another wonderful comment from Jacob da Jew…

    …anyone see what I am saying?

  • doctrauma August 2, 2009, 10:37 PM

    i agree with JdJ and dont understand why those who are offended by heshy’s post continue to read them, it is almost as if they have nothing better to do than to kvetch, just a thought

  • Brad August 2, 2009, 10:50 PM

    A thoughtful, reasonable reply to objectionable material by a critic would be along the lines of; “this is inappropriate, and let me tell you why.”

    Not: “oh Heshy you’re so f’ed up you’ll never get a shidduch shame on you you pornographic bastard why don’t you go to hell.”

    The people that make the latter type of comments are the same kind of people that respond to Palestinian protesters with “Death to the Arabs.”

    It just doesn’t make any sense.

  • Abe the Gun Guy August 2, 2009, 11:53 PM

    I have been a long time lurker, and I must say that I am thankful Heshy is out there, spreading his message. The idea that we must belong to a subgroup (yeshivish, MO) is antithetical to yedishkeit and the fact that someone has some different ideas that do not violate halachah is perfectly fine with me.

    I do not always agree with what Heshy has to say, but I find his style of writing and his openness to be a breath of fresh air that people should be exposed to.

    Remember, we must live in this world, not hide from it… Our job is to be a “light unto the nations” and we can’t do that if we live in ghettos and re-chew old soup… new ideas that can be debated honestly under halachah are fundamental to our success.

  • Schwartzie August 3, 2009, 12:05 AM

    Parent- if I was your daughter, I would run screaming.

  • Rebecca August 3, 2009, 1:04 AM

    truth is, no matter what you do, it’s going to be some people’s “absolute favorite,” and others’ “worst post yet.” That’s kind of how you know you’ve hit internet fame, I suppose…

  • Anonymous August 3, 2009, 1:41 AM

    since you stated you accept criticism… I think you writing is terrific but it is disappointing that you sometimes use foul language to make a point. with your erudite abilities I think you should be more creative and sophisticated. the bad language is beneath you, hesh

  • Floost August 3, 2009, 3:11 AM

    I really like your blog and i respect your work. I’ll be a frequent visitor.

  • Nameless Faceless August 3, 2009, 5:30 AM

    Anon @1:41: go fuck yourself.

    (sorry, had to do it 🙂 )

    anyway, the hater for hater sake is something I get too — albeit probably not the same quantity. I will say, though, I’ve never understood why it’s such a high percentage of the comments and emails I get; you’re angry enough to comment, but you can’t be bothered to tell me why?

    Some guy a few days ago left me a comment — one line: “you’re a piece of shit.” I wonder if that made him feel better than the guy who leaves me detailed emails about how to do the proper tshuva for my convert soul. Sounds like you wouldn’t mind either, so I’m working on getting all my nasty emailers to come over here 🙂

  • abandoning eden August 3, 2009, 8:07 AM

    you suck! You’re blog used to be much funnier, what happened? Also, Screw You!

  • Heshy Fried August 3, 2009, 9:02 AM

    It is a two way street – I wish things were more intelligent, but there is no way I am going to go the route of snobbish hipster magazines and only allow certain comments – happens to be I will leave all comments up in most instances.

  • E. Fink August 3, 2009, 9:21 AM

    Don’t stop.

    I can handle ’em.

  • Bsamim Smoker August 3, 2009, 10:45 AM

    Awsome blogs Hesh.I don’t dig everything you say but there are posts that make laugh so hard I almost died, and for those I am ever thank full(for example all the posts that had to do with yeshiva and dormitory life)

  • not an UWSider August 3, 2009, 12:53 PM

    Agreed, Hesh, completely. My biggest complaint is that all the other hipster jewish mags and blogs out there don’t do enough of a job of representing Modern Orthodox people and the more religious ones make MO’s come out as being nonjewish. I like that your blog creates an even balance. Keep it up.

  • D123 August 3, 2009, 1:12 PM

    Your Humor is refreshing.. funny as hell. Keep it up. For all the narrow-minded pompous critics. there is a big difference between having strong personal beliefs and having your head planted firmly in the sand.

  • Westsider August 3, 2009, 1:21 PM

    I check the blog once a week, and the comments add to the humor…

    I also say f*ck you FS because you think you are a know it all, when really you are a two bit hick.

    I read this blog because the stupidity is humorous, not because of the intelligence.

    Oh – and screw everyone who reads this blog. FS is clueless.

  • ghottistyx August 3, 2009, 1:39 PM

    A good measure of one’s greatness is not what one’s supporters say about them, but what their adversaries say about them. After all, no great man was ever without opposition; even Mordechai, them man who saved the lives of every Jew in the known civilized world from Hodu to Kush had “rov HaYehudim” supporting him: why not “kol HaYehudim”? Because there were still those who said he should never have left the Beis Midrash and gone into politics. Thus, even their criticism shows how great Mordechai was.

    There are many examples in history of this. I like the “open range” policy of this blog, where you have all kinds of characters from many walks of life. To those immature ones who insist on leaving dumb baseless criticism, I say it’s a free country, and no one’s forcing you to read this blog, or any blog at all. As the old saying in Yiddish goes, “go bang your heads against the wall”.

  • Chris_B August 3, 2009, 2:12 PM

    The post was a little too lucid, no glaring typos, miss-spellings or other Frum Satire signatures. Did someone ghost write this? 8)

    In all seriousness, I really like the fact that there are Jews of many stripes here and even the ones I dont agree with I can learn from. I look forward to seeing the blog grow in new directions as well.

  • Chatzkaleh August 3, 2009, 3:01 PM

    Just wanted the world to know that this little kid is wearing a t-shirt from Feijenoord, the Rotterdam (Dutch) football club and even though I am a fan off Ajax, it fills me with pride: our future! 😛

  • Chris_B August 3, 2009, 3:16 PM


    Americans dont know that “footbal club” mean soccer team.

  • FrumGer August 3, 2009, 3:18 PM

    Heshy, been following you for a month or two, got to admit that I laugh a lot and get pissed just as often. I like what you do- keep doing it. the only times I ever get mad is when you go overboard on BT’s and how overboard they go to do things right. the reason they do that in the first place is because because Hashem has lit a fire in them and sometimes it takes violent radical measures to change your life. I laugh because what you say is true, but there is a certain underlining tone, that could make them feel self consious to not wear a Big Yarm or overly knee bow, or not talking in shul, .. they are doing this because they actually have kahvanah towards Yiddishkeit, which alot of people in shul do not. even Frummies and yeshivishe, a lot of them are there because that is all that they know, they have no passion or sometimes at best its a passion that is forced not sincere. the other thing is when you talk about materbation. As most of the people that reaed your blog is young and impressionable I don’t think any public figure should justify or down play a violation of Torah which affect every young man. As a public figure which G-d has allowed you to be or given you a gift even, you also have a responsiblity that you cannot excape from. Please uphold the yiddishkeit. when I read things like ” the only time I don’t wear a kippah is when I am picking up change or buying porn” this should not be. And the many other discussions I have read. Porn is definitely assur on so many levels and I was shocked to read other frum people talking about watching it with their spouse. What is the point of being frum? Has anyone heard of Kadushah? Perhaps they are not really frum, i don’t know. If the Alter Mittler or the whoever Rebbe where around they would never say that in front of them of that I am sure. I find it funny how people can fear man but have no fear for G-d Himself. And the Gemorrah say that if your going to commit a sin to do it in another town cover your head so that no one might recognize you, and to do not ever talk about it. We should not be proud of our sins we should not justify them. I get angry because through you- a great many people are influenced one way or the other, and you have some really positive things that I think you are trying to express, but please don’t let one Baal Teshuvah loose the fire inside them. Hashem has put this into that person, that passion of repentience. Read how King David laid on the floor for his first son with Bathsheeba after his sin with Urriah was discovered. Read how he danced so crazily in the streets that even Michel was embarassed to the point of hating him when the Ark was coming into the City. A Baal Teshuvah is a great beautiful thing and their overzealotry can be a source of humor but you have to be careful with it. its dangerous ground. And becareful on the masterbation and porn topic, that stuff I don’t find funny at all, and do not think that anyone that says or looks like they fear G-d should be talking openly about the subject other than to give positive ways on overcoming such an assur. Goyim read these posts, DO NOT make yids or yiddishkeit look bad!! Do not make them look immoral, even if we deal with these things in real life. Those things shuld only be discussed in the context a jewish only crowd, by a Rabbi a man of wisdom AT LEAS. if a christian reads this post and says to himself a Jew is immoral- a Jew likes to look at porn and is not ashamed of it. that is the opposite of being a light to the world and that is anthetical to tikkum olam. Goyim should think we are the most moral people on earth, that we deal honestly that we have great families, not that we masterbating all the time and looking at porno. I say all this because I actually like you a lot Heshy I LIKE YOUR FUNNY BLOGS YOUR SERIOUS BLOGS YOUR SHORT BLOGS YOUR LONG BLOGS. You got good thing and I wish you the best in your success I hope this bring you good revenue eventually, I am sorry this is a long post feel free to disagree with me.

  • Sergey Kadinsky August 3, 2009, 3:46 PM


    I am glad that you keep your forum open to all comments, and that you jump in to respond. Some stories die once they are printed, yours take on a life of their own.

    People comment, tweet, and debate your articles. You respond, they respond. Follow-up and sequels. Your blog has life. And that’s good.

  • Chris_B August 3, 2009, 4:05 PM


    I started following this blog before I even began my conversion process and as regards to the comments on porn and monkey spanking, my general thoughts were “hey, here’s a God loving, Orthodox Jew who isnt pretending his sh*t dont stink”. With all the scandals in the Orthodox world, blue movie watching and chicken choking are pretty small stuff in the eyes of non Jews.

    P.S. If you are so worried about the image non Jews might form concerning the frum, lose the word “goyim” from your vocabulary. Non Jews know pretty well what the subtext of that word is.

  • Tevye August 3, 2009, 5:16 PM

    FrumGer couldn’t have said it better.

    I’m a convert, and I can be overly zealous sometimes… and I can laugh at some of it too… but being zealous is what helps me push forward when my whole Xian family and all my Xian friends have said that I’m dead to them. It helps me draw closer to Hashem.

    You’ve got some great stuff… my wife hates it, but I find the humor in some things. Just cut back on the porno/mastrabation/untzniut content.

    Keep writing the good stuff… Hashem has given you the platform.

  • lisanoor August 3, 2009, 7:15 PM

    You are hilarious!!! It’s comedy …. its entertaiment!! For those that are worried about the “impressionable” Anyone who could be swayed or make some life altering decision based on what they read on a comedy blog will not live that decision very long…. so dont worry about them.. in two months they’ll be doing or thinking something else.

    I mean, the content is attractive. My personal life, I’d like to think I wouldn’t use violent words to describe anything that beautiful. And if that were what’s happening, it certainly wouldn’t be seeing the light of blog.

    I dig the netbook word-processing software that catches all the typos. That’s great.

    And the melting pot / common ground thing is part of what keeps me coming back.

    Wow, “it sucks balls” are you even reading the posts that you are commenting on? The guy told you he has a real job that he gets paid for. If you have a problem with this blog, don’t read it. And please, for our sake, don’t comment and spare us having to read your unintelligent rants. I’m seriously wondering if all these comments are a joke, or people really are being this ignorant.

    ball sucker, exactly how many blogs have you read other than this one?

    Right…now go back to your momma and, ah, lets not get to graphic, eh?

  • FrumGer August 4, 2009, 9:59 AM

    What are you talking about? Blue movies and chicken chocking monkey spanking? Those very terms down play and make humourous a Shonda. period. and a shonda that causes grief to a lot of yids I now that are not married but still want a pious life. And the whole- here’s a guy that isnn’t afraid to write like his sh*t don’t stank.. doesn’t float when you are in the public eye. Heshy Fried- and I don’t know him at all- has a responsibility now because he represents Judiasim. And I love most his stuff- Hagbar and galilah, Shadchans, farting in shul, white shirts vs blue shirts, the color of your Yarm, all that is so funny and also comments on real underlaying prejudices that are so superficial you can’t do anything but laugh. I love Hesh. But I also love Judiasm, and the waste of seed- the Tanya ( i’m not Lubav or a hasid at all, but love Hasidic text and tradition) the Tanya says that it would be better to commit lewdness with your mother basically then to waste your seed. the Torah says that Onan died because he waste his seed, different scenario same result, the strongest prohabition ever- death. that should not be talked about in mixed company guys girls jews non jews. period. in a way that makes it “not a big deal everybody’s doing it.” And the term Goyim only has a negitive context if you put one there. Torah says goyim all the time, what we should skip that part so as not to offend? gentile is a made up word, goyim is the proper name. I do not use it negitively. like—” those nasty goyisher kops may they slip in drek and break there neck. I am just calling the NATIONS of the world what they are… goyim. bottom line porn is wrong on a ton of levels, masterbation is wrong on a ton of levels, and making fun of baal teshuvahs ( Thanks for the back up Tevye) is wrong, just like the prohabition against not be sensitive to Ger tzaddikim should be the same for Baal Teshuvah- if their email is hashemlovesmendyyechi770@yahoo.com let be so- who cares nu? I think of it like being a new born child, they need to be comforted, because I am sure they have a million old friends and family that think there off the derech by getting on the derech. some of the stuff with the BTs is funny for sure, but that needs moderation and with the feelings and reactions of a BT in mind. Will all of a sudden after reading a post they feel like they are doing something wrong, or do they look stupid in shul the way they shuckle or bow? does anyone know how self concious a BT or a GER is? hesh says he is kind of a BT himself… NO. even if you go off the D, and get back on.. he is still FFB. a true BT or Ger are the most sensitive self consious people looking for one thing acceptance from a community. all I am saying is be sensitive to that, thats it. BUT other stuff is not a laughing matter- watching two unmarried people making a desicration of the most sacred covenent that two people can have, is like watching a couple anti semites ripping up a Sefer Torah. Then on top of that- Violating the Torah by practicing lewdness while watching this act take place– it is almost Idol worship. The whole act is like Idol worship. it reminds me of when Moshe Rabbanu cam down from the mountain and he saw what Israel was doing with the golden calf and performing lewdness. it reminds me of that. there is major guilt invovled afterward, and a feeling like you failed, it is just not a funny matter. that is extreme but I have been there before and I know what I am talking about. It is a terrible thing and should not be mentioned other than to denounce it. period. Heshy again love you man, 95 percent of your humour is great and much needed. hope you get married and have some kids soon- I think that is what you need most of all….

  • Sergeant J August 4, 2009, 11:23 AM

    Funny, I always thought Onan was wrong because he was having sex with a woman who was with him strictly to have a child, and to spite her, he pulled out. But I guess your version, where the woman has nothing to do with anything, makes more sense for the mindset of many of the Rabbis of old (and several of the new as well)..

  • Chris_B August 4, 2009, 11:49 AM

    I tend to side with Sergeant J on Onan with the same qualifications. He’d have been guilty of the same violation if he had just pretended to finish rather than pull out.


    I respect your opinion (or what I could make out anyway) but I dont agree. We are a mixed multitude in many ways and it looks like this is one of them. Sure I’m sensitive to some issues as a convert but I was blessed with thick skin so when I screw on minhag up or act overzealous in shul, I can accept that someone might giggle.

    Also your justification on the word goyim isnt new and doesnt hold water. The word as used in English has a different connotation than as used in Hebrew. If you are a ger, would you use that word to describe your mother and father? Would you say it to their faces? I sure wouldnt, its very disrespectful.

    we have a separate page where all their comments and letters get dumped to and they are made fun of mercilessly. that way, good posts and questions aren’t cluttered up and when you need a quick laugh or dose of dumb, then you just go to the troll board.

    first I was adopted by a yiddish family when I was a teenager, before that I was in and out of many family/foster homes, group homes etc, the only family I am in contact with now is my jewish family. But yes I call the other people – goyim because that is what they are, I call the few cousins I do know of goyim, I refer many of my co workers goyim, they laugh not offended, because it does not have that negitive connotation with me. And As far as coitius Interuptus with Onan, this was an assur on many levels yes one of them was that he would not immpregnate Tamar but thats the whole point wasting life or potential for life. anytime I have ever heard of ha shcha tat zerah or the laws pertaining to Keri, I have heard Onans name brought up. A waste of a seed, is a waste of a seed.
    coitius intr., masterbation, or ejaculation by other methods of penetration other than the male/female reproduction organs together, is assur. the only one case where it is unavoidable is nocternal emmission.. i think that is a form of Zav… Gemorah says it is better to chop your hand off, than to “let you hand go below your navel”
    unfortunatly not only do we disagree but halachically you are wrong. So I guess consult your Rabbaim or Posekim Because this is basic stuff.
    Also I have a pretty thick skin, and I never really got poked fun at, because I studied enough to know, and caught on quickly, plus my Zaidy is the frummest hasid yid I know and he taught me well. when i started off i lived with him for years. I say True frum, doesn’t care what color shirt or Yarm someone wears just wants to go to another spiritual level with them.
    but just because I had a good expirience doesn’t mean everyone is the same. there are some sensitive people out there, i have always been a confident type but some of my friends care sooo much about what others think sometimes its crazy. I am just saying be sensitive, have fun with it sure.. but Heshy gets going on something then he just keeps taking it to the next level, for more shock value, and sometime I think he goes a little too far sometimes not even realizing it.. maybe.

    But I do have a normal steady job – its against my will – the money and the ability to make fun of Jews all day long is too hard to pass up.

    Blogging has taken the place of solitaire as office fun.

    Good to know that thanks to your hard study you never made a mistake. Whats it feel like to never do averah?

  • Max August 4, 2009, 5:16 PM

    Only Hesh could get 60+ comments on a blog posting that defends his other blog postings … How many of you can say your blog has generated even 1/10th that number on ANY posting??

    Frumsatire is fantastic! Until I read this site, I never knew what a “hocker” or “hot chani” was, or even noticed how Yeshiva bochurim always come back from Israel with a chumra for every situation. Every frumsatire posting hits the mark bang on.

    Keep up the good work, Hesh!

    Never do an averah?? that’s not what I am saying at all, the whole point is that every man makes all kinds of mistakes. I am no scholar either, I am just a regular guy that studys a little bit.

    FrumGer, try to cut down on the huge comments.

  • FrumGer August 5, 2009, 3:41 PM

    Sorry guys, I do tend to write too much it s true…

  • s(b.) August 5, 2009, 3:55 PM

    it’s okay; write, if you want to write. if it’s too long for someone, no one’s making anyone read anything. just please don’t be offended if you write the great American novel and you don’t get tons of feedback ’cause people are trying to get work or job-hunting done, too.

  • s(b.) August 5, 2009, 3:56 PM

    And if I didn’t know a very ehrlich guy who takes shmiras habris VERY seriously, I don’t think I wouldn’t easily believe that people really think about that stuff.

  • s(b.) August 5, 2009, 4:00 PM

    edit==above==would. sorry.

  • FrumGer August 5, 2009, 4:56 PM

    I just know that if so called frum yids can really be shomer habris that may be what send us the Moshaich, who knows? I mean if you can keep the tzaddikeit when no one is looking then you can easily do the other stuff, I mean shabbos is easy, kashrut is simple, Tefilin- Mackts Nachts, Piece of cake… because your infront of other people most of the time. But when no one looking, that makes a true Hosid. That is what I think Hashem truelly cares about anyway. I guess its hard for me to understand.
