A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his Sunday sermon.
Four worms were placed into four separate jars.
The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container 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
Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . . Dead
Fourth worm in good clean soil . . .Alive
So the Minister asked the congregation, “What did you learn from this demonstration?”
Maxine was sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said, “If you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms.”
That pretty much ended the service.
Today is International Disturbed People’s Day.
Please send an encouraging message to a disturbed friend…
Just as I’ve done.

You can’t argue with logic like that!
Gee… Thanks for the reblog! Much appreciated!
LOL, it was hilarious! Can’t not share that… 😉 keep writing, I’m reading.
That’s funny. When I was in survival school, a couple of guys were trying to catch some fish. Not Large Mouth Bass, Catfish or German Brown Trout. Little fish called shad, so small you could easily fit three or four in your palm.
I watched these guys for a while, they weren’t catching anything because the hook was too big for the fishes mouth. I asked where they got their worms and they pointed to some good soil. Very quickly I had a handful of worms, I washed them off and ate them while my buddies kept trying to fish.
They were soft and gummy but not bad to eat, especially when you haven’t eaten anything in a couple of days.
Duuuuude!! Now don’t go patting yourself on your back… Eating raw fish or shrimp that still move in your mouth at a sushi bar qualifies! LOL
In a survival situation I don’t mind eating something that is still moving, but I like my sushi dead.
By the way, if you ever eat a grasshopper split it open along the thorax. It isn’t near as crunchy.
Dooohhhhhh!!!!!!! And you ate it without soy sauce! lol
Well, you certainly helped this disturbed person LOL 😀
LOL! But you have all those cutie pie dogs for therapy!
Because killing innocent creatures by suffocating them slowly in various substances to prove some misbegotten point is always good…if you’re doing it “for god”.
People sicken me.
Is this true? It’s hysterical!LOL
gpcox… If you think this is true, time to come up for air! LOL!
Peggy, as an elementary school principal, had an annual reading contest. The kids would challenge her to do something. If they reached the goal she would have to do it. The kids went for things like Sumo wresting, pie in the face, dunk tank, etc. One year they decided Peggy would have to eat worms: one sautéed, one deep-fried and one alive. The kids reached the goal and Peggy performed the deed, in front of 1000 students and their teachers. And yes, she dutifully downed the big, fat, juicy, wriggling one. –Curt
OMG! But she had one up on them from the get-go – the Peace Corps! I’ll tell ya… You both had guts to do what you did and “eat” what was available!
A great story, but looking at those worms makes me hungry 🙂
Dude… Maybe gummy worms may placate that hunger…?
Sending you kind thoughts from one disturbed person to another.
LOL. Good one! Thank you!
This is so funny and so clever, Koji! I have many disturbed friends. I’ll have to extend the day to all week…this is a good one for any occasion!
Hey, Debra, are you staying dry? Anyways, there’s plenty of these kind of things going around in emails. I just thought this one brought a smile to my face so I changed it just a tad. Who knows who made this up!
Great post. I know it’s not relevant, but I have worms on the brain at the moment as they breed under the bark of the logs I am drying for the stove. I can’t bear the idea of putting anything live on the fire, so I spent hours rescuing worms (and spider and weevils of all sorts). Maybe I’m disturbed.
OMGoddness, Hilary. You are one sweet person. Indeed, your father would be so happy! And if that makes you disturbed, I would like to join you! I hope your new Stive is working well for you over yonder!
Please note I do not consider you disturbed… although you chased two perps in your car……… 🙂
