Chaim Yankel’s Wagon

One day Chaim Yankel, a farm boy in the town of Chelm, accidentally overturned his wagon load of corn while traveling on one of the country roads. The farmer who lived nearby was riding by and saw what happened. "Chaim Yankel!!" the farmer yelled. "Don’t worry about your wagon. Come to my house for supper and I can take you home afterwards."

"That's mighty nice of you,” Chaim Yankel answered, "but I don't think Dad would like me to."

"Awe, come on," the farmer insisted.

"Well okay," Chaim Yankel finally agreed, and added, "But Dad won't like it."

After a hearty dinner, Chaim Yankel thanked his host. "I really enjoyed the meal, but I know Dad is going to be real upset."

"Don't be foolish!" the neighbor said. "By the way, where is he?"

"Under the wagon."
