Jenny and the Mice
Jerry and Jenny's parents had moved to the country when they retired. One mild winter, they had a bit of a problem with rodents in the garage. They bought one of those little sub-sonic mouse repellants (you plug them in and they emit some kind of sound that drives off mice). Dad was showing it to Jenny and explaining that it was an animal repellant. He told her that it worked for everything from mice to elephants.
"Really?" Jenny said, sounding serious and fascinated.
"Yes," Dad replied. "We've had it here for a couple of weeks now and we haven't had a single elephant in the garage the whole time!"
She nearly decked him!
