U will cry with laughter!

[This is a joke that is really funny and it works!]

An old lady walked into a Grocery Store.
She wanted to buy the best dog food in the world for her little puppy.
She went up to the cash register to buy the food.

The sales-lady told her that the store did not allow old ladies to buy animal food unless they show the actual animal because a lot of old ladies like to eat the animal food themselves..

So the old lady went home, got her dog and went back to the store to buy her dog food.
The next day she came back to buy the best cat food around But the Saleslady told her the same thing, so the old lady went back home and brought her cat to the Grocery Store to buy the cat food.

The next day the old lady went to the Grocery Store again carrying a big container. She went up to the sales lady and said, "Put your hand inside here". The Saleslady shook her head. "NO", she said, "there is probably something in there that will bite me!" "I promise you that there is nothing in here that will bite you".. the old lady said. So the Saleslady stuck her hand inside the container and screamed.

To find out what was inside the container you must send this to at least 10 people, when it says, your mail has been sent....instead of clicking OK, hit ALT-8 and the container will pop up on your screen.
