** An elderly couple return to a Mercedes dealership to find the salesman had just sold the car they were interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde. “I thought you said that you would hold that car till we raised the $75,000 asking price,” said the old man. “Yet I just heard you closed the deal for $65,000 to that lovely young lady there. You insisted there could be no discount on this model.” “Well, what can I tell you? She had the ready cash and just look at her, how could I resist?” replied the grinning salesman. Just then the young woman approached the old folks and handed them the keys. “There you go,” she said. “I told you I could get this joker to drop the price. See you later, grandpa.”  -- Moral of the story: Never mess with the elderly.

** Four worms were placed in four separate test tubes: 1st in beer, 2nd in wine, 3rd in whiskey, and the 4th in mineral water. The next day the teacher showed the results: 1st worm in beer, dead. 2nd worm in wine, dead. 3rd worm in whiskey, dead. 4th worm in mineral water, alive and healthy. The teacher asks the class: “What did we learn from this experiment?” One of the children responds: “Whoever drinks beer, wine, or whiskey, does not have worms.”
