My seminary teacher was a… fanatic. She once told us that girls dressing up on Purim was like eating pork on Yom Kippur.
One of her admirers… went to her house a lot to help her with all her many kids.
One day our teacher made this student a sandwich before she went back to seminary. After she finished eating, the student took out a bencher from her handbag and started to bentch. The bentcher happened to be from YU and had the YU logo on it.
The teacher looked at the bentcher, grabbed it, and threw it into the trash.
The student looked at her in shock.
“YU is treif!” the teacher exclaimed. “Their memorabilia belongs in the garbage!”
“But mommy,” her daughter protested, “It’s sheimos. How can you throw it in the garbage?”
“I promise you, anything that says the word ‘Torah U’Madah’ on the cover isn’t sheimos. Ask Totty when he comes home, you’ll see that he agrees with me.”
