Heard about the Tweet-Milah?

Only in Israel, as they say, are you likely to see a story like this:

Rabbi sits down on train to Jerusalem, lays out newspaper, opens up box, lifts out parakeet, places on table. Reads calmly.

Authorities recommend: Do not approach. Parakeet considered winged and dangerous.

Situation ongoing.

Check it out, here. I presume it’s a spoof, but it is funny. Brought to you by the ‘It’s important not to lose your sense of humor’ party!
