Handy Hairspray

A little boy and his grandfather were raking leaves in the yard.

The little boy found an earthworm trying to get back into its hole.

The boy said, “Grandpa, I bet I can put that worm back in that hole.”

The grandfather skeptically replied, “I’ll bet you five dollars you can’t. It’s too wiggly and limp to put back in that little hole.”

The little boy ran into the house and came back out with a can of hairspray. He sprayed the worm until it was straight and stiff as a board. Then he put the worm back into the hole.

The grandfather handed the little boy five dollars, grabbed the hairspray, and ran into the house.

Thirty minutes later the grandfather came back out and handed the little boy another $5.

The boy looked at the $5 and said, “But grandpa, you already paid me for the bet.”

The grandfather replied, “That’s from your grandma.”
