~  To help a friend lose weight, I told her that she
should switch to lower-fat foods; including skim milk.
When she said her family would only drink whole milk,
I suggested that she keep their regular container and
refill it with skim milk.
This worked for quite a while, until her daughter asked,
one morning, whether the milk was okay.
 “Sure, it’s fine,” my friend answered, fearing she had
been found out.
“Why do you ask?”
 “Because according to the bottle,” the daughter
explained, “this milk expired a year ago.”

So he goes and tells the doctor, "Hey, doc, I have lost
my sense of taste.
I can't taste nothing', so what are you going to do?"
 The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself
a little, then tells Mr. Smith, "What you need is jar
number 43."
 Jar number 43?
Mr. Smith wonders.
So the doctor brings the jar and tells Mr. Smith to taste
He tastes it and immediately spits it out,
"This is gross!" he yells.
"I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Smith,"
says the doctor.
 So Mr. Smith goes home very mad.
One month later, Mr. Smith goes back to the doctor
along with a new problem, "Doc," he starts,
"I can't remember!"
 Thinking he got the doctor, the doctor scratches his
 head and mumbles to himself a little and tells
Mr. Smith, "What you need is jar number 43..."

was an earthquake was actually the effects of a

one pulling, he wouldn't even try.'
