It's Purim Torah season at Mi Yodeya, where, in addition to the regular, serious questions, we also welcome parody questions. Our policy (yes, we have a policy) says:
It's gotta be distinctly "Purim" (not serious), distinctly Torah, and distinctly Q&A. Purim Torah questions that don't have all three of these qualities may be closed.
So, post sincere-looking questions (you know, the kind that invite answers) that:
- misinterpret a real Torah concept or Jewish text, or
- apply a distinctly Torah style (e.g. Talmudic analysis) to an irrelevant topic
Here's a sampling from this year:
Using the Force on Shabbat, for Jewish Jedis.
What kind of horns did Moshe have? (my first Purim Torah question)
Why didn't Adam use the pen of earth? -- based on a misunderstanding of the first verse of the torah and the observation that the pen is mightier than the sword so he should have been able to get back into the garden
For whom should I vote? (US presidential election 2016), seeking biblical or talmudic sources only
Seeking texts of all prayers associated with the clock change (also links to other questions about time-shifting)
What is the bracha when one eats the torah? -- "I keep seeing all these questions which discuss "Purim Torah, Ingest" but they don't seem to address the rules of actually ingesting the Torah." (What's a little homophone among friends?)
And from the same person who, last year, asked Why don't Jews accept Our Lord and Savior? (I'm pretty happy with my answer there), we have another provocative-seeming question: What's the source/reason for allowing gay marriage for synagogue leaders?
There are a lot more, over 250 from this and past years.
