Can Cold Water Clean Dishes?
This is for all you germ conscious folks, who worry about using cold water to wash the dishes after a meal.
John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded, rural area of West Virginia.
After spending a great evening chatting the night away, in the morning, John's grandfather prepared a breakfast of bacon, eggs and toast.
However, John noticed a film like substance on his plate and questioned his grandfather asking, "Are these plates clean?"
His grandfather replied, "They're as clean as cold water can get them. Just you go ahead and finish your meal."
For lunch the old man made hamburgers.
Again, John was concerned about the plates, as his appeared to have tiny specks around the edge that looked like dried egg and asked, "Are you sure these plates are clean?"
Without looking up the old man said, "I told you before, those dishes are as clean as cold water can get them. Now don't you fret, I don't want to hear another word about it!"
Later that afternoon, as John was leaving, his grandfather's dog started to growl and wouldn't let him pass.
John yelled, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car."
Without taking his eyes off the football he was watching on TV, the old man shouted, "COLDWATER... GO LAY DOWN!"
