If the purpose of a jigsaw puzzle is to give you something to do to pass the time, then Amazon is quite possibly selling the best jigsaw ever - in that it is definitely going to pass a lot of time.
The puzzle is comprised of 1,000 pieces - and for the more keen puzzlers among you, this may not seem like too much to handle. However, as the name 'Pure White Hell' suggests, all the pieces are blank.
Yep, the damn thing is gonna be practically impossible, and even if you do manage to complete it - lockdown long since lifted and your partner having found someone new - then you don't even get the satisfaction of having a pretty picture to look at once you're done.
So, I'm sure you're asking: 'How much will this pleasure set me back?'
Well, you can get it now for £31.80 ($39.21). There's also a black version.
The product description reads: "A jigsaw puzzle is a tiling puzzle that requires the assembly of often oddly shaped interlocking and tessellating pieces."
Clearly though, this is just a description of what a jigsaw is, which surely we all know.
A more useful description would probably read: "Has all of your paint dried? Fed up of having so much free time to watch films, read books, and bake cakes, in this, your only chance at life? Then why not buy the Pure White Hell jigsaw puzzle and fritter away your precious time attempting a maddeningly difficult and ultimately unrewarding chore?"
Oh, and I forgot to mention, not only is the puzzle comprised of 1,000 blank pieces, they're also 'micro pieces', with the finished puzzle (which obviously you'll never see) measuring just 22.9 x 5.1 x 17.8 cm.
Considering all of the above, you may be wondering how there is a market for such a product. However, judging by the reviews, it seems customers seldom buy it for themselves.
One review reads: "If you hate someone, or simply enjoy making them suffer, give them this puzzle. My parents have almost gone insane trying to complete this."
Another - entitled 'Perfect for the smart-ass in your life' - says: "I can't wait to see my brother's face when he opens this on Christmas. He loves puzzles and challenges, and this is bound to finally stump him! Gets him back for being annoying for the last 17 years."
Finally, the puzzle is starting to make sense.
