Niskatnu Hadoros

In response to a blogging meme going around recently:
Two yeshiva guys, Chaim and Shmuel, were traveling upstate, by car. Suddenly, Chaim says urgently to Shmuel, "I need to use the bathroom." Well, there is no bathroom around for miles, so they pull over to the side of the road, and the fellow heads off into the woods to answer the call of nature. Shmuel wants to know how long he is going to have to wait, and if he should shut off the engine, etc., so he asks, "gedolim or ketanim?" Chaim says, "gedolim." But then, he returns back to the car after only about two minutes!
"I thought you said gedolim?"
"I did. But niskatnu hadoros. Our gedolim are like their ketanim."

You mentioned that you were planning a follow up to your post on the Aruch Hashulchan about getting drunk on Purim. Is that still happening?

Hashem, and baby, permitting, yes.

Very funny.

For my Purim torah I have written about a rebellion by a group of MO lox fressers against chumrahs which overturns the chareidi world. Check it out.
