A science teacher asked her students
“Children, if you could own one material, what would it be?”
One girl said, “I would choose gold. It’s worth lots of money and I could buy a Corvette.”
One boy said, “I would want platinum because it’s worth more than gold and I could buy a Porsche.”
The teacher said, “Little Johnny, What would you want?”
Johnny said, “I would want silicone.”
“Why would you want silicone?” Asked the teacher
“Well my mom got some, he replied, “and there’s always a Porsche or Corvette sitting in our driveway.”
So one day, Grandma sent her grandson Little Johnny down to the waterhole to get some water for cooking dinner.
As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him.
He dropped the bucket and hightailed it for Grandma’s kitchen.
“Well now, where’s my bucket and where’s my water?” Grandma asked him.
“I can’t get any water from that water hole, Grandma” exclaimed Johnny. “There’s a BIG ol’ alligator down there!”
“Now don’t you mind that ol’ alligator, Johnny. He’s been there for a few years now, and he’s never hurt no one. Why, he’s probably as scared of you as you are of him!”
“Well, Grandma,” replied Johnny, “if he’s as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain’t fit to drink!”
