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!”
