Correctly reasoning to the wrong conclusion...
A professor of chemistry wanted to teach his 6th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he conducted an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms...
"Now, class. Observe closely the behaviour of the worms," said the prof putting a worm first into the water.
The worm in water wriggled about, happy as a worm in water could be. The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail.
"Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the professor asked.
Johnny, who naturally sits in back, raised his hand and wisely, responded, "Drink whiskey and you won't get worms."
