I was about to ask a PTIJ when I discovered that the subject had already been covered as a serious topic with serious answers. However, I personally would like to hear the more humorous possibilities on the topic.

Is it okay to convert regular questions into PTIJs?

  • It's already been done in the opposite direction: judaism.stackexchange.com/q/15059/1569 > judaism.stackexchange.com/q/15093/1569

  • @ba PTIJ policy has evolved over the years. Something happening in previous years does not mean it would have qualified today.

  • @DoubleAA I didn't say it did. But why should it not have qualified today? It was a good question (+13/-1)

1 Answer 1


According to the Purim Torah policy,

So, post sincere-looking questions (you know, the kind that invite answers) that:

  • misinterpret a real Torah concept or Jewish text


  • apply a distinctly Torah style (e.g. Talmudic analysis) to an irrelevant topic

By this standard, a valid non-PTIJ question is unlikely to qualify as a valid PTIJ question, since it's not deliberately misinterpreting something real or apply a Torah style to an irrelevant topic.

  • The topic I was planning on asking about was "can aliens convert to Judaism", which is covered here: judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/17108/… Results - and yeah, I would've deliberately misinterpreted something for my version.
