Alternative version of a well-known Midrash

As an 'appendix' to this post, I couldn't resist posting this alternative to the well-known Midrash.

When it came time to give the Torah, God approached the different factions.

First He approached Chabad. They asked, 'what is written in it?'
God replied: THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME.

Then He approached Satmar. They asked, 'what's it say?'
God replied: THOU SHALT NOT STEAL.

Then He took it to Lakewood. They asked 'What's written in it?'
God replied: FOR SIX DAYS THOU SHALT WORK.
