The old lady was so kind - but he discovered this

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.”
