C. T. O. T. D.

Todays Chaptzem Post Title of the Day:
Chassidim bagleit R' Mordche Dovid
R' Mordche Dovid's Chassidim were out in full force last night to bagleit him home from Shul Motzei Yom Tov. After following him down 15th Avenue until 46th Street, his car turned off and continued towards 16th Avenue. The Chassidim however did not stop there. They continued down 15th Avenue, passing by the Bobover Shul. That was when R' Bentzion's Chassidim came and started shishkening the crowd. R' M. D.'s Chassidim continued quietly with no further incidents taking place.
I can't believe we live in a society where people can't just bagleit without being shishkened. It's really a disgrace.

Update: You absolutely MUST read the comments to this post on Chaptzem.

Translation, please? "begleit" and "shishken"?

Not a Yiddish speaker

Should the need arise, I am, of course, available at all times for any necessary Yiddish translations.

Oy, and two possible helpers have left us hanging - yungerman & godol hador, help!

Or did the author of this piece just MAKE THESE WORDS UP so they looked like they were Yiddish?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I would say shishkening means to ask to be quiet (as in shhh!). Bagleit means to accompany.

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
