Why we should never end our sentence with a preposition 8-)
On my 60th birthday, I received a gift certificate from my wife. The
certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby
reservation in Texas who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for e r
e c t i l e dysfunction.
After being persuaded, I drove to the reservation, handed my ticket to
the medicine man and wondered what would happen next.
The old man slowly, methodically produced a potion, handed it to me,
and with a grip on my shoulder, warned:
"This is a powerful medicine and it must be respected. You take only a
teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3.' When you do that, you will be more
manly than you have ever been in your life, and you can perform as
long as you want."
I was encouraged. As I walked away, I turned and asked: "How do I stop
the medicine from working?"
"You partner must say '1-2-3-4,' he responded. "But when she does, the
medicine will not work again until the next full moon."
I was eager to see if it worked, so I went home, showered, shaved,
took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited my wife to join me
in the bedroom.
When she came in, I took off my clothes and said "1-2-3." Immediately,
I was the manliest of men!
My wife was so excited she began throwing off her clothes.
And then she asked:
"What was the 1-2-3 for?"
And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why we should never end our
sentence with a preposition!!
