This is for MtheGM..it was either this thread or the other!*bg*

On his 75th 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 walks 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 of 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, because we could end up with a dangling
participle.
