** 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.”

** I picked up a hitchhiker last night. He seemed surprised that I’d pick up a stranger and asked, “Thanks, but why would you pick me up? How do you know I’m not a serial killer?” I told him the chances of two serial killers being in one car would be astronomical.
