Edith, a little silver-haired lady calls her neighbor and says, “Bert, please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can’t figure out how to get started.”
Bert asks, “What is it supposed to be when it’s finished?”
Edith says, “According to the picture on the box, it’s a rooster.”
Bert decides to go over and help with the puzzle.
She lets him in and leads him to the kitchen table upon which all the puzzle pieces are spread.
Bert studies the pieces for a moment, looks at the box then turns to her and says, “Edie, first of all, no matter what we do, we’re not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster.”
He takes Edith’s hand and says, “Secondly, I want you to relax. Let’s have a nice cup of tea, and then,” he says with a deep sigh…
“Let’s put all the Corn Flakes back in the box.”
