So I’m walking down the street in Baltimore this past shabbos and spotted a Jewish scarecrow.
Now how on earth could I tell it was Jewish you may ask!
Was it wearing a yarmulke? Was it holding a plate of kugel? Was it acting as a shadchun? Did it have a sign proclaiming to the world that it was Jewish?
Nope, but it had a sheitle on!
That’s right folks some ingenious woman had decided to make a scarecrow by sticking two of those Styrofoam sheitle heads onto sticks and then place a sheitle on top of them. If humans like myself are scared of sheitles I can only imagine what the crows were thinking as they aborted their garden eating mission.
I promise next time I am in Baltimore to get a picture.
