Chaim and the Genie

One day Chaim Kaplan spotted a lamp by the roadside. He picked it up, rubbed it vigorously, and a genie appeared. "I'll grant you three wishes," the genie said.

Chaim thought for a moment and said, "I’ve always wanted to be spectacularly wealthy.”

And so it was that Chaim was wealthy.

“I’ve always wanted to be fabulously handsome.”

And so it was that Chaim was handsome.

Chaim thought for another moment and said, “I’ve always wanted to do something that no man has ever succeeded in doing."

"Poof!" said the genie. "You can now cook Shabbos dinner.”
