a baal koreh leined "balyalah hahoo naddeda shnat hamelech" to Brahms' Lullabye
a henchman of the baal koreh held up Punch & Judy-type puppets to enact the various roles
the rabbi cranked his hands like a movie reel to signal the baal koreh that he should speed things up

I love those aerosol cans that have a trigger... you squeeze it and it makes such a loud hooting sound, I just love it. It's one of those things that are so silly but crack me up. it's kinda the sound like a duck in distress, but with a laundry clip over it's nose so it's a nasal duck quacking. Paaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaam!

I guess I'm really Yekke at heart...I hate purim shtik, we never had it in our family, Purim was always a very serious holiday, celebrating our deliverance from disaster. Dh told me that he always has a problem with Jewish men acting like morons, using "yuntif" as an excuse. There is, according to him, no excuse to get drunk to the point of being gross, and there is a tremendous difference between drinking enough to be glad and happy and relaxed and gay and throwing up all over the toilet bowl!

So, while little kids wear costumes to make them happy, we never went into any shtik...

My DD's sem has been having a lot of fun. Two days ago, someone woke at 5 a.m. and took the whole dorm's shoes and hung them up on the ceiling of the common area. Yesterday, they switched places with another seminary, except that half the girls didn't, and the menaheles refused entry to the latecomers, so it's hard to say who the joke was on.
