Your Grandmother may have told you that old men given you worms. The truth about Worms Four worms were placed into four separate jars. The first worm was put into a jar of alcohol. The second worm was put into a jar of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a jar of sperm The fourth worm was put into a jar of soil. After one day, these were the results: The first worm in alcohol - dead. Second worm in cigarette smoke - dead. Third worm in sperm - dead. Fourth worm in soil - alive. Lesson: Don't trust Grandma on this one. As long as you drink, smoke and have sex, you won't get worms.
