Hey Man, Where's Your Skull Cap?

Yammika, Yamika, Yahmika, Yomicka, Yommika, Yammica, Yammicka, Yarmulke.

No matter how you spell it, most non-Jewish people recognize it from Adam Sandler's little tune from years ago. You probably know it as the little hat most Jewish men wear most of the time.

But why? Is it to keep your head warm? Does it block evil thetans? Ooops, wrong religion...

Well, another happy set of searches led me to an answer. The cap is to remind those of the Jewish faith follow the tradition as in tractate Shabbat 156b, which states "Cover your head in order that the fear of heaven may be upon you". So there. It is a friendly reminder that God is up there, over your head, all the time.

And I found it to be incredibly funny how these "Masters of the Web" get their "keyword hits". Scroll down to the bottom of the site and highlight upwards. There are thousands of words they have added to the page in "camouflage" to attract more traffic to the site...
