Proving a Point
A man drinks a shot of whiskey every night before bed. After years of this, his wife wants him to quit; she gets two shot glasses, filling one with water and the other with whiskey.
After getting him to the table that had the glasses, she brings his bait box. She says "I want you to see this."
The man steps up and watches as she puts a worm in the water, and it swims around.
She then puts a worm in the whiskey, and the worm dies immediately.
"So," she says, feeling that she has made her point clear, "what have you learned from this experiment?"
"Plenty!" he says, which brightens her considerably.
"Really, darling?" she says, almost melting.
"You bet," he responds. "If I drink whiskey, I won't get worms!"
