That's right. Bomb them with bagels and lox!

To be fair, it's not that much different from Uncle Wiggly Wings.

The Americans should do it as well. They have an impressive amount of old nukes. I sure hope those parachutes work, though.

@Yudith: that's what I meant: they did do it. Not with missiles but with bombers, during the Berlin Blockade. Most of the food was just landed at Tempelhof, but look up the Rosinenbomber if you want a true feel-good story.

I guess they planned to fill them with… bomb pops!
