Actually, I have not figured out how to solve the Chinese finger trap puzzle yet. The last five years have been difficult.

Heh-- I was trying to find a clip from The Simpsons, but that one is better.

Shh… no one tell him about tavern puzzles.

The real “puzzle” is why you would pay $10 for two bent nails.
