a chuck and snick to share

my friend eMailed this to lesson to me, and being the generous person i am, i want to impart the message to you:

On my 70 th birthday, I got a gift certificate from my wife.  The certificate paid for a visit to an Indian shaman living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.  After being persuaded, I drove to the reservation, handed my ticket the shaman, and wondered what I was in for.
 
The old man slowly, methodically produced a potion, handed it to me, and with a grip on my shoulder, warned, "This is powerful medicine and  it must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3. When you do that, you will be more manly than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."    was very encouraged, and as he turned and started to walk away,I asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?"  The shaman responded, "your partner must say '1-2-3-4'.  But when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."

I was eager to see if it worked I went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited my wife to join me in the bedroom.   When she came in, I took off my clothes and confidently said, "1-2-3!"  Immediately, I was the manliest of men.

My wife was excited and began peeling off her clothes, and then she asked, "What was the 1-2-3 for?"

And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition!
