Okay, you miscalculated, and you have a few extra boxes of Passover matzah cluttering your cupboard. Maybe a few dozen.

And let's face it: if you have to choke down another bite of matzah, you're going to hurl. So what to do with the leftovers?

We asked Jewish Week blogger Rabbi Jason Miller, and he offered these "helpful" suggestions - tongue firmly in cheek, maybe stuck there by all the matzah goo:

- Give it to a blind person to read

- Crumble, add water and fill in the cracks in the sidewalk

- Use it as packing material

- How about playing catch with a square Frisbee?

- Crumble up for Shavuot Blintz topping

uhhhh check out this musical contribution to Jewish culture: 20 Things to Do with Matza and here's another: damp matzah on the forehead is great for reducing fevers, and it's biodegradable so it can go right into your compost; or, feed it to the neighborhood birds, and stop the plop. Keren Adam
