Three years I put up a post about absurd products and services marketed for Pesach. This year I saw something that inspired me to write a new post along those lines. When I passed by the Judaica store on Shabbos, I saw something in the window. I couldn't figure out what it was. Today when I passed it again, I stepped in to ascertain what the small curved metal item boxed together with what looked like a small piece of matzah was. Flipping over the box revealed the label and what the item is called: a matzah crumb scraper. And this handy-dandy item that can be easily replaced by a , papertowel or perhaps even a piece of cardboard sells for $9.99. Now that's absurd.
Anyone find something to top this?
