Apologies to Monty Python

So, this whole Kaporot thing is reminding me of the Crunchy Frog Sketch:

I: Then we have number four. Number four: Swinging Chicken.
H: Yes.

I: Am I right in thinking there's a real chicken in 'ere?
H: Yes, a little one.

I: What sort of chicken?
H: A...a *live* chicken.

I: Is it cooked?
H: No.

I: What, a LIVE chicken?!?
H: Oh, we use only the finest baby chickens, dew-picked and flown from Israel, cleansed in the finest quality spring water, lightly swung, and lovingly frosted with glucose.

I: That's as may be, but it's still a chicken!
H: What else?

I: Well, don't you even take the bones out?
H: If we took the bones out, it wouldn't be live, would it?

I: Constable Clitoris swung one of those!! We have to protect the public!
C: Uh, would you excuse me a moment, Sir? (exits)

I: We have to protect the public! People aren't going to think there's a real chicken being swung! Constable Clitoris thought it was an rubber duckie! They're bound to expect some sort of mock chicken!
H: (outraged) MOCK chicken!?! We use NO artificial additives or preservatives of ANY kind!

I: Nevertheless, I advise you in future to replace the words "Swinging Chicken" with the legend, "Crunchy, Raw, Unboned Real Live Chicken" if you wish to avoid prosecution!
H: What about our sales?

I: FUCK your sales! We've got to protect the public!
