Talking Pretty good MENSA joke!

A friend of mine in Fort Worth sent this one out yesterday!


There was a Mensa convention in San Francisco. Mensa, as you probably know, this a national organization for people who have an IQ of 140 or higher.

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local café.
When they sat down, one of them discovered that their salt shaker
contained pepper, and their pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any,
and using only the implements at hand? Clearly, this was a job
for Mensa minds.The group debated the problem and presented ideas
and finally came up with a brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw,
and an empty saucer.They called the waitress over ready to dazzle her
with their solution.

"Ma'am," they said, "we couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker
contains salt and the salt shaker has pepper."But before they could finish,
the waitress interrupted: " Oh, sorry about that."
She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles and switched them.

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

Kind of reminds you of the past 30 years in Washington D.C., doesn't it?

Me either. But I have the Mensa Elite membership and I'm one of the few with a stunning sense of humor.

Reminds me of my father-in-law, the retired engineer.

He is really good at coming up with creative and complex solutions to problems that don't really exist.

Everybody knows if you unscrew the caps the salt and the pepper caught in the threads between the caps and the shaker are gonna fall out. Stupid waitress!

My salt and pepper shakers are different colors so that wouldn't work.

Fools warped in academica.
My twin and father had Dr. in the front of their name. Both were sad representations of the human race. Neither could ballance a check book or change the oil in their car. Good luck with the card.........................
