Shmuel Gross’s son Chaim Yankel lived overseas and as a gift Shmuel sent Chaim Yankel a gift of a rare bird. Not being a great expert in ornithology, Chaim Yankel thought the bird was a delicacy. When Shmuel called to see how Chaim Yankel enjoyed the gift he sent, Chaim Yankel replied, “Oh, the bird? I shechted it. It was delicious!”

“So why didn't he say something?” asked Chaim Yankel.
