A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.

Three worms were placed into separate jars.

The first worm was put into a jar of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a jar of cigarette smoke.

The third worm was put into a jar of good, clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the minister reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol – DEAD.

The second worm in cigarette smoke – DEAD.

The third worm in good, clean soil – ALIVE.

So the minister asked the congregation, “What can you learn from this demonstration?”

A little old woman in the back quickly raised her hand and said, “As long as you drink and smoke, you won’t have worms!”
