Here's what we know about Mr. Black, from Dr Seuss's Hop on Pop:

  • He has a frock, black hat, and beard. (image)
  • He comes back from "out of town" with Mr. Brown; implying Mr. Black lives outside of New York. (image)
  • He eats a "snack" with Mr. Brown and Pup that includes a sandwich, which means he must hold of "mezonos bread". (image)

He seems pretty frum, but how many frum Jews live "out of town" anyways? And the consensus of poskim is against mezonos bread [citation needed]. What subgroup could he possibly belong to?

    For future reference, Purim Torah questions only use the purim-torah-in-jest tag and require "PTIJ:" in the title. You can see the full policy here. – Alex Mar 19 '19 at 17:41

For someone who loves to hop on Pop, he has to be a "Poppa" Chassid. These are a branch of the Puppa Chassidim that was named after the town Papa in Hungary.

The "Poppa" Hassidm have the same dress and customs as the Puppa Chassidim. The only differences is that they pronounce the vowel "U" as "o" and they have round hands and claws on their feet.
