    Dangling Participle!

    Dangling Participle!
    On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife.

    The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby
    reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.

    After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, handed his ticket to the
    medicine man and wondered what he was in for.

    The old man slowly, methodically produced a potion, handed it to him, and
    with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This is powerful medicine and it must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3.'

    "When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."

    The man was encouraged. As he walked away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?"

    "Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,' he responded. "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. His wife 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-

    ONE COULD END UP WITH A DANGLING PARTICIPLE!!

    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.

    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and like it, never really care for anything else.

    'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
    delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
    promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
    holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
    possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'
