Some Idiots had to much to

Some Idiots had to much to drink, walked past it, decided to steal it, and about 3/4 of a mile later realized it was to heavy and what the fuck were they going to do with it anyway and set it down.

This is my theory.

This is too heavy to carry very far, let alone a mile.

Then the LORD said unto Moses, Go in unto Brookline, and tell them, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my menorah go, that it may serve me to navigate that damned rotary.

If turkeys have figured out how to move a 300 pound menorah, then we've got some serious trouble ahead.

But pay no attention at all ...

To the signs scattered about the parkways of Brookline that warn of impending "traffic circles," for those were surely painted by a New York concern that submitted the lowest bid.

Roundabouts

In and around Brookline, menorahs come out of the sky, and they stand there.

There's a strip mall at the rotary, and it used to have a store called the Roundabout.

Interfaith prank war

In my best Sean Connery voice...

They put a menorah on Church St... We put a cross on Synagogue Lane
