    Medicine Man and a Grammar lesson at once.


    For his 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, the man drove to the reservation,
    handed his certificate to the medicine man and wondered what would happen next.

    The old man slowly and methodically produced a potion, handed it to
    the man, 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, the man turned and asked,
    "How do I stop the action of the medicine?"

    "Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,' the medicine man responded. "But
    when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."

    The man was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered,
    shaved, combed his hair, put on lots of cologne, 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, the glory of his manhood filled the room. His wife was
    so excited that she began ripping off her clothes. And then she
    asked, "By the way, Honey, what was the 1-2-3 for?"

    And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences
    with a preposition! Otherwise you will end up with a dangling participle.
