bava batra 73

tall tales of big fish,
big trees,
big snakes, frogs, birds
and juggling demons.

all inspired by the big waves of the sea.

Discussion about the laws of buying ships, and what is included, leads to many stories about the sea. Each one more fantastic than the last. It's a talmudic rabbis story slam. For me the winner was Rabba and his tale of the demon Hurmin, the son of Lilith, juggling wine and dancing on bridges.
