Haveil Havalim- Purim Is Over Edition

Updated to include a few new posts including those with Jameel The Waffle King.
Welcome to the Purim is over edition of Haveil Havalim. I noticed today that someone spent a lot of time reading my old post
You Just Aren’t that Funny. They probably are wondering why it is not called “You swear Like a Sailor.” See, the computer is giving me grief, but I am not here to kvetch…much.

Ok on to the carnival. There are some outstanding posts this week. Read carefully. As a warmup you can begin with my post Death Comes For Us All- When Do you Start Saying Goodbye.
