Here’s an oldie but goodie:

A guy goes to his rebbi in the week of Parshas Mishpatim and says “Good news, I had a baby girl! Only thing is though, I have a minhag to name my kids after someone in the parshah, and Moshe, Aharon and the rest of the people in the parshah are already taken by my other kids. What do I do???”
The rebbi thinks for a few moments, and says “That’s a fair point. Have you considered “Machasheyfah”?
The guy says “That would be good, but my shvigger is still alive!”

I think for many people here we have to open a new forum called "Internet Forum Addiction for Jewish Men"

That's a very important point Mike, but know that there IS a solution. I used to be completely powerless over my forum addiction. But with the help of my lusting I found pornography, and was completely healed of my obsession to post. I am now able to go over a week without posting on the forum. The best part is, that the posting desires disappeared immediately as soon as I started lusting, unlike other addictions in life where it is a process to get rid of.
I hope you have lots of hatzlacha.
just wondering, in light of the alternative if forum addiction is such a bad thing.... Mark, what do you say?

Did you have to write only one word on each line so the Forum editor would not automatically take out the word "NOT"?

Mark, this was the actual Dr Seuss that you meant from the other thread.

I agree you are simply what the big book would call "A problem poster" not a postaholic

True story:

A bunch of kids were sitting around by circle time in a “Gan” (playgroup in E”Y), and the activity was reading this book that has pictures of animals, and the kids need to say where each animal lives. Anyway, they get to a cat, and a kid yells out “It lives in the garage cans!”...

A guy desperately needs the bathroom, so he runs to the nearest one he could find, and the only open stall is a handicapped stall. Left with no other option, he goes in. When he comes out, there’s a guy in a wheelchair who’s sitting there, and asks him, “What were you doing in there”? The guy answers, “I needed to use the bathroom “. “Well, that stall is reserved for handicapped people, and you’re not handicapped!”
The guy composes himself and says, “Well, I was before I went in there”.

Why are the minds of women so clean?
Because they change them so often.

Two giant wind turbines were in a field. One day, one of them asked the other “What type of music do you listen to?”
The other one replied, “Well, I’m a big metal fan”.
