For all my

  grammatically correct friends.

On his 74th 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
After being persuaded,
  he drove to the reservation, handed his
to the medicine man and
  wondered what he was in for.
The old man handed a
  potion to him, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This
  is a powerful medicine. You take only a teaspoonful and then
  say '1-2-3.' "
When you do, 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, 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,
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, 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
could end up with a


  participle.  Wink

Rape is the ultimate compliment..
