Can cold water clean dishes? This is for all the germ conscious folks
that worry about using cold
water to clean.

John went to visit his 90 year old grandfather in a very secluded,
rural area of Georgia .

After spending a great evening chatting the night away, John's
grandfather prepared 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, Sonny!"

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,
Sonny, 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, John was on his way to a nearby town and as he
was leaving, his
grandfather's dog started to growl, and wouldn't let him pass. John
yelled and
said, "Grandfather, your dog won't let me get to my car".

Without diverting his attention from the football game he was watching
on TV, the old man
shouted ...


Good one!
I heard the same joke years ago, only it was, two dogs, and the dishes were as clean as, "Soap and Water could get them"
Hey, thanks for the idear, Terry. My grandson has a habit of putting his plate on the floor so my 3 beagles can lick it clean. Now I can give them nicknames of "Soap", "Water" and "Rinse"!!
