Washing Hampsters

A young boy, about eight years old, was at the corner "Mom & Pop" grocery picking out a pretty good size box of laundry detergent. The grocer walked over, and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy if he had a lot of laundry to do.

"Oh, no laundry," the boy said, "I'm going to wash my hampsters." "But you shouldn't use this to wash hampsters. It's very powerful and if you wash your hampsters in this, they'll get sick. In fact, it might even kill them."

But the boy was not to be stopped and carried the detergent to the counter and paid for it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him out of washing the hampsters.

About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The grocer asked the boy how his hampsters were doing. "Oh, they died," the boy said.

The grocer, trying not to be an "I-told-you-so", said he was sorry the hampsters died but added, "I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your hampsters."

"Well, the boy replied, "I don't think it was the detergent that killed them." "Oh? What was it then?"

"Well, after I washed them, I had to dry them and I guess the dryer can get a little hot, not to mention the hurdles they had to do. But I must say they did come without that static cling!!"
