Cute Chanukka play on words
The following story is said about the Gra. When he was little the Cheder teacher told the boys that if they told him how many candles you light on Channuka they could leave early. The Gra answered הפח נשבר ואנחנו נמלטנו. The word פח in Gematria is 88, so the Gra said break פח into 2, 44 candles and we can run away.
