This was funny;
A college professor was doing a study testing the senses of first
graders, using a bowl of lifesavers. He gave all the children the same
kind of lifesavers, one at a time, and asked them to identify them by
color and flavor. The children began to say:
Finally the professor gave them all honey lifesavers. After eating them
for a few moments none of the children could identify the taste.
"Well," he said "I'll give you all a clue, It's what your mother may
sometimes call your father." One little girl looked up in horror, spit
her's out and yelled:
Oh My God!!!! They're assholes!"
