Chelm’s First Medical Student

Chaim Yankel from Chelm passes his exams and as is awarded a place in Medical School. And because he's the first student from his town to do so well, all his family, all his friends and all his neighbors are very proud of him.

Six months into his training, he's with some other medical students doing the rounds at the Chelm Hospital with a qualified doctor. Stopping next to the records of one of the patients, the doctor takes out the patient's X-rays and says to the group, "As you can deduce from these X-rays, this patient limps badly because both his tibias and fibulas are radically arched. So let me ask you, Chaim Yankel, what would you do in a case like this?"

After thinking about this for a short while, Chaim Yankel replies, "I suppose I'd limp too, doctor."
