This is not a joke. Repeat, this is not a joke. There is a neighbor, lives round here. Had five boy chicks. Grew into roosters. Four have since been taken to farms. One is about to become coq au vin, as neighbor is a superb cook. But, this neighbor needs to kill the rooster first, since humans haven't eaten meat live since a long long time ago. I don't even think our teeth are "cut" out for the job, as currently configured. So she's asking if anyone out there has any experience killing, er, preparing, birds, roosters in particular I guess. Please email me if you have. If you've forgotten what a rooster looks like, here's a picture, not of this particular bird, but of the Platonic ideal. Magnificent, right?
The Q at Parkside
News and Nonsense from the Brooklyn neighborhood of Lefferts and environs, or more specifically a neighborhood once known as Melrose Park. Sometimes called Lefferts Gardens. Or Prospect-Lefferts Gardens. Or PLG. Or North Flatbush. Or Caledonia (west of Ocean). Or West Pigtown. Across From Park Slope. Under Crown Heights. Near Drummer's Grove. The Side of the Park With the McDonalds. Jackie Robinson Town. Home of Lefferts Manor. West Wingate. Near Kings County Hospital. Or if you're coming from the airport in taxi, maybe just Flatbush is best.
