"Did you hear, Shloime, like, died."

"Oh that is so sad. When is the funeral?"

"There is no funeral."

"Why not?"

"Well because he is still breathing."

"So on what basis did you say that he is dead?"

"Because the doctor pronounced him, like, dead."

"LIKE dead?"

"Yes, LIKE dead."

"Which doctor?"

"Rabbi Dr. Moshe Tendler."


"Shloime was in an accident and is now brain dead."

(Not that I intend to take a position one way or another on this controversy. And I must credit the source which inspired this post.)
