The Torah In Haiku: B’haalot’cha
The people complain
"If only we had some meat"
They'd prefer Egypt
G-d: "I'll give you meat"
For a month you will eat it
Until you hate it
Numbers 11:4, 18-20: "The Israelites wept and said, "If only we had meat to eat! We remember the fish that we used to eat free in Egypt, the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic ... [G-d tells Moses to say to them] ... you have kept whining before G-d ... you shall eat [meat] ... a whole month, until it comes out of your nostrils and becomes loathsome to you."
I love a good corned beef sandwich as much as the next (non-vegetarian) guy, but as the image accompanying this post demonstrates (and as the people learned in the desert) sometimes there can be too much of a good thing.
