  1. Renowned popcorn addict, 7-year old Akiva Popowitz, told reporters on Tuesday in no uncertain terms that, “Unless they serve truck loads of popcorn at the Chol Hamoed carnival, I’m not showing up! Period!”
    Akiva conceded to reporters that “Cotton candy is also pretty cool,” but he insisted that, “popcorn is absolutely crucial to” his “happiness” and to his “ability to have a blast at the chol hamoed carnival!”
    “I never go to any event where popcorn is not prominently served among the event’s sumptuous and salivating snacks,” he said.
    When asked whether Mr. Popowitz’s request will be fulfilled, Dr. Rich Roberts, organizer of the carnival, told reporters on Tuesday: “Tell Akiva not to worry, we always have plenty of popcorn at the carnivals, and lots of other tasty nosh. Please tell him to come down to the carnival, and I will personally serve him all the popcorn that his heart desires.”
    Upon learning of Dr. Robert’s reply, the 7-year old popcorn enthusiast emailed Dr. Robert’s with another request: “I don’t mean to be a nudge or anything like that, but most people are unaware of my compulsive hot dog obsession. Can I also request 6 or 7 hot dogs too, charcoal grilled, with lots of mustard and relish – on a sesame bun? I hope it’s not too much of a bother… And some cherry sherbert too. I’m sorry…Thanx.”

      • Thank you so much for creating this wonderful kosher event for our community!
        We just left and my kids had such a nice time. May Hashem bless you for all the chessed that you do.

  2. Upon awakening I check TLS. Still bleary-eyed instead of “TENT A” I read it as “YENTA” which got me thinking, “Why do I need to go to Dr. Rich’s carnival to see a Yenta? My mother-in-law is coming for the 1st days.”

  3. thank you dr. Roberts for the best day! we watched all the shows and got the prizes and my kids said can we come back tomorrow? it was really fun and thank you for making am Yisroel happy!
