    Feed two birds with one scone = harm two birds with human food.

    I generally say “Catch two fish with one net” when I want to make that point. The original version of the saying would create nivailos.

    They weren’t even kosher birds.

    I may be beating a dead horse, but the irony of the “Holocaust on your plate” folks taking exception with common idioms makes me sick as a dog. This is the straw that broke the camels back, and I am going to take the bull by the horns and kill the fatted calf. Thankfully there’s more than one way to skin a cat.

    “You can’t have your cake, and eat it.”
    Why not ???
    The correct version: You can’t eat your cake and have it.
    Which reminds me; can people stop saying , “eksetra”?
    It’s ETCETERA…. et cetera.

    They COULD have been kosher birds. The geese around Suzanne Lake in Monsey are such a nuisance that some people might be tempted to kill them with rocks, two at a time if possible. But geese are kosher. I suppose that there’s more than one way to peel a cantaloupe.

    I don’t believe it is possible, at least not by hand.

    These people at PETA are idiots. Don’t spook the horse you’re riding. Don’t they realize the more ridiculous they get the more likely they’ll end up sleeping with the fishes? Actually that’s a bit extreme. More likely they’ll just be taken as seriously as words spoken by a parrot. That’s mostly the case already now though.

    Conspiracy theory: With “feed two birds with one scone”, “feed a fed horse” and “bring home the bagel”, PETA is seeking to promote obesity.

    And obesity from eating vegan foods, no less!

    According to PETA, animal treatment is a social justice issue. Let that one sink in.

    Perhaps we should poll the animal population on whether they find these idioms offensive?

    RY: I know I’m late to the party, but try feeding the birds with millet scones. I’m sure you can find a bird friendly recipe. If not, simply the seeds will do.
