Yet another `April's Fool Joke', that may one day turn out to be not so funny after all. Let's hope, though, that the extra-curricular activity of the mathematicians mentioned in this piece would not be emulated.

P.S. For the non-Hebrewophone, DIBRA means `commandment'.

Added May 24, 2001: I just found out that at least one person was fooled by this article, and that person is a master at April-fooling himself! See Richard Askey's article at v. 42 of Actes de Seminaire Lotharingien, or its paper version, `The Andrews Festshrift' just published by Springer (p. 10 and p. 25 respectively).
