A shadkhn (matchmaker) comes to a prospective groom, and announces “ Have I got a match for you! She’s as beautiful as a work of art!” The young man agrees to meet the prospect. When the shadkhn returns a few days later, the young man is furious: “A work of art? Some work of art! One eye half closed, the other too large. One ear a good inch below the other, and the nose off center by at least a half inch!” “So what’s the matter,” asks the shadkhn, “Picasso you don’t like?”
