Someone just emailed me this. Kinda is like I feel sometimes. :o)
I have modified it slightly to exclude any reference to a group… The reference to the group had nothing to do with the story or the humor.
Four worms and a lesson ...
A speaker decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his seminar. Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a container of alcohol. The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup. The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil. At the conclusion of the seminar, the speaker reported the following results: The first worm in alcohol - DEAD!
The second worm in cigarette smoke - DEAD!
Third worm in chocolate syrup - DEAD!
Fourth worm in good clean soil - ALIVE!
So the speaker asked the audience - What can you learn from this demonstration? Maxine was setting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, "As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate -- you won't have worms!"
And that pretty much ended the seminar.
