Gullible Men

A woman ran a red traffic light and crashed into a man's car.  Both of their cars are demolished but amazingly neither of them was hurt.  After they crawled out of their cars, the woman said, "Wow, just look at our cars!  There's nothing left, but fortunately we are unhurt. This must be a sign from above that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days”

The man replied, "I agree with you completely.  This must be a sign from God!"

The woman continued, "And look at this, here's another miracle.  My car is completely demolished, but my bottle of 75 year old scotch didn't break.  Surely God meant for us to drink this vintage delicacy and celebrate our good fortune."  Then she handed the bottle to the man.

The man nodded his head in agreement, opened it, drank half the bottle and then handed it back to the woman.  The woman took the bottle, immediately put the cap back on and handed it back to the man.

The man asks, "Aren't you having any?"

She replies, "Nah. I think I'll just wait for the police."

Adam ate the apple, too!

Men will never learn!

More useless facts

About 32 million bacteria call every inch of your skin home. But don't worry, a majority of these are harmless or even helpful bacteria.
