Proper Grammar

Filed under: Uncategorized — sirlaugh @ 11:35 am

On a man’s 66th birthday, he got a gift certificate from his wife.  The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby Native American reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction. The man drove to the reservation, handed his certificate to the medicine man and wondered what would happen next.

The medicine man slowly, methodically produced a potion, handed it to the patient, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned, “This is powerful medicine and it must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful and then immediately say ‘1-2-3’.  When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life and you will be able to perform as long as you want.”


The patient was encouraged.. As he walked away, he turned and asked, “How does one stop the medicine from working?”  The medicine man responded,”Your partner must say ‘1-2-3-4,’  But when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon.”


He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom . When she came in, he took off his clothes and said, “1-2-3!”


Immediately, he was the manliest of men. Hiswife was excited and began throwing off her clothes. And then she asked, “What was the 1-2-3 for?”


And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, or…

ONE COULD END UP WITH A DANGLING PARTICIPLE!!
