Someone - The Riddler - was trying to point out to my friend Shloymie that rhetorical questions were "put downs" or "power ploys"
Shloymie: "What's wrong with rhetorical questions?"
RRW: "Who says there is anything wrong with rhetorical questions?"
Shloymie: "didn't the Riddler say they are wrong?"
RRW: You mean wrong like as in the Torah Wrong?
Shloymie: what other wrong is there?
RRW: Was Avraham wrong?
Shloymie: whatcha mean?
RRW: Do you know how many rhetorical questions he asked Hashem to save Sodom?
Shoymie: but how about Korach's hutzpah question to Moshe "madua tisnas'u al Qehal Hashem?"
RRW: How about Moshe's rhetorical question: "hatzon uvaqar yishacheit..."?
Shloymie: is that why Moshe was punished?
RRW: maybe Moshe shouldn't have seen Qorach's question as hutzpah? Maybe he should have understood it literally?
Maybe he should have answered it straightorwardly
Shloymie: But what about the Riddler?
RRW: Good Questions!
