He thought the old lady was so kind – until he discovered her secret

    So I was sitting on the bus just reading a book when somebody tapped me on the shoulder.


    I turned around and saw an old lady.  She said to me, “Sonny, would you like some nuts? I’ve got a couple hazelnuts and almonds if you’d like.”


    “Sure.”, I replied.


    She gave me a handful of nuts and went back to sit with her friends.


    “What a nice lady”, I thought, while happily munching on the nuts.


    A few minutes later, I felt another tap on my shoulder and there she was again, offering some nuts. I gladly accepted and she went back to her seat.


    After about 10 minutes, she tapped me on the shoulder, once again offering some nuts.


    I asked her, “Why don’t you eat them yourself?”


    “Because we’ve got no teeth”, she replied.


    “Then why do you buy them?”, I asked.


    “Oh, we just love to suck the chocolate off of them.”
