How not to get worms

The latest pearl of wisdom in written humor…

A health coach decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his group class one day.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

How not to get worms

Worms: how not to get them

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.

The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.

The third worm was put into a container of chocolate syrup.

The fourth worm was put into a container of good, clean soil.

At the end of the group discussion, the health coach reported the following results:

The first worm in alcohol … dead.

The second worm in cigarette smoke … dead.

The third worm in chocolate syrup … dead.

The fourth worm in good, clean soil … survived.

So the health coach asked the group, “What did you learn from this demonstration?”

One bright spark sitting at the back quickly raised her hand and said, “as long as you drink, smoke, and eat chocolate, you won’t have worms.”

Turn that worm into great writing skills

“Super Speeches”…how to write and deliver them well

“How To Write About Yourself”…how to make the most of yourself, whatever you need to write

“Business Writing Made Easy”…everything you need to know about writing for business in English
