Trayf of the Week?: The BP Oil Spill

Leviticus 11:9. Look it up.


I try not to get involved in the environment.  I figure if a bunch of great minds—plus the maritally-challenged Al Gore—can’t solve it, they don’t need this Yid’s meddling.

But the oil spill in the gulf is out of control.  Literally.  I’ve heard people call it Biblical.  This got me thinking.  What if, through the oil and wreckage, shrimp begin to mutate and grow fins and scales?

You know how there are people who think the Holocaust was redeemed through the creation of the State of Israel?  Maybe this whole messy megillah can be redeemed through making shrimp Kosher!
