If you have been putting off getting a Purim costume, here is an easy solution. Dress up as a member of the Vaad Hatznius. You don’t really need to do anything special. However, for special effect you could go around with binoculars hanging from your neck. You might also add on a video camera with a good zoom lens and a tape recorder. The only essential equipment is one of those brown markers they use in stores to check hundred dollar bills. If you are really short on time, just find a big magnifying glass and brandish it conspicuously.
This isn’t just a gag. As a member of a vaad hatznius you can move up from getting chump change for yourself or your favorite tzedakah whether it is chinuch atzmi or anything else. Instead you can put the bite on people for big bucks like ten to twenty grand or even more.
Have a freilich and profitable Purim.
