Quite the Puzzle

June 24, 2018 | by Aish.com

Chaim Yankel was not the brightest boy in Yeshiva. He was having trouble understanding the complicated flow of the Talmud so one of the rabbis suggested that he start doing some puzzles which might help him develop his intellect.

Exasperated after a few hours with no success, Chaim Yankel called his friend Shimmy. "Shimmy, please come over to my house and help me. The Rabbi told me to do jigsaw puzzles so I got one but I can't figure out how to get it started."

Shimmy asked, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?" Chaim Yankel said, "According to the picture on the box, it's a tiger."

Shimmy decided to go over and help with the puzzle. Chaim Yankel let Shimmy in and showed him the puzzle spread all over the table. Shimmy studied the pieces for a moment, then looked at the box, then turned to Chaim Yankel and said, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger."

Then Shimmy patted his friend on the shoulder and said, "Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of hot chocolate and then," he sighed, "let's put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box."
