Proposal for Pesach Absurdity Contest
My submission for most absurd service offers people that will come to you to clean your car and guarantee its chametz free status. The picture in the ad shows people washing a car. Obviously, though, if one drops crumbs from munchies, they would be in the car not on the exterior. Dirt is not chametz. Keep reminding yourself of that when you read articles like the one Mother in Israel referenced that schedule when to wash the dustruffles.
My submission for most absurd product is the covering for your refrigerator handle, cabinet knobs, and telephone. I am happy to say, though, that this product does not claim any rabbinic endorsement. Really, once you feel you have to cover everything you may have touched, you may as well say you have to repaper your whole house. And to put this together with the previous service, where are the Pesach covers for the steering wheel and car door handles?
Anyone else have a suggestion for absurdities suggested for Pesach?
