Oh Those Witty Satmars

I couldn't ignore DovBear's comment here:
My all time favorite bit of Satmar wit. When the Lubovitcher Rebbe died, the Satmar paper ran a eulogy which ended with the words “Hamokon Yerachem Aleichem.”

(Traditionaly we tell dead people: The Lord will confort you. In this eulogy the Satmar punned it into The Lord pities you.)
