There I was in Moishas this evening, finishing off a bit of preliminary Pesach shopping (read: I bought my Shabbos toothbrush/toothpaste) when an image hit me. I would imagine that all of the birds in Flatbush are currently being very well fed, what with the kilos of chometz being strewn upon the streets whily-nily.
So can't you picture it? Flocks upon flocks of fat, stuffed-to-the-girls birdies! For one month a year, the birds develop a weight problem, LOL.
(Hmm. I wonder what Barack Obama has to say on that one...?)
