Running on Empty
Chaim Yankel, the fattest man in Chelm went to see his doctor for a check up. Dr. Epstein told Chaim Yankel that he needed to lose weight immediately, and the best way to do it would be for him to start running seven miles a day.
Chaim Yankel followed Dr. Epstein’s advice, and it seemed to be working. After only 40 days he had lost over 30 pounds.
Chaim Yankel phoned Dr. Epstein and thanked him very much for the excellent advice. But at the end of the conversation, Chaim Yankel said, “Doctor, I just have one more question. How do I get home, now that I am 280 miles away from home?"
