A Satmar Chossid relayed this story to me:
The previous Gerer Rebbe had a policy that he did not want a newly married chatan to attend his Shabbat tisch during his 1st year of marriage. One Shabbat, he saw a chatan at the Shabbat tisch. The Rebbe walked up to him and gave him a a piece of kugel. Then, he said, "Here's a piece of kugel. Make 'shehakol'. Then go home to your wife and make 'borei nefashos'".
I think it's a great story! I can't verify its authenticity. But, I'm curious if the Rebbe was known for having such a sharp sense of humor.
