lesson of the evils of liquer

A chemistry teacher wanted to teach his 9th grade class a lesson about the evils of
liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey,
and two worms.


"Now, class, observe the worms closely," he said, putting a worm first into the water. The
worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.


The second worm he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail.

"Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the teacher asked.

One of the students raised his hand and wisely, responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms."
