A young man met a cowboy who was 104, still active and in good health. He asked the old-timer what the secret was to his longevity.
The old man said, “You gotta sprinkle a little gunpowder on your porridge every morning, see. If you do that, you’ll live to a nice, ripe old age.”
So the young man did this religiously every day for the rest of his life and, sure enough, lived to the age of 100.
When he died, he left behind six children, 10 grandchildren, 56 great-grandchildren… and a 16-foot hole in the wall of the crematorium.
