A single man wanted someone to help him with the household
chores, so he decided to get a pet to help out. He went to
the local pet shop and asks the owner for advice on a
suitable animal. The owner suggested a dog, but the man
said, "Nah, dogs can't do dishes." The owner then
suggested a cat, but the man said, "Nah, cats can't do the
Finally the owner suggests a centipede, "This is the
perfect pet for you. It can do anything!" OK, the man
thought, I'll give it a try, so he bought it and took it
home. Once home he told the centipede to wash the dishes.
The centipede looks over and there are piles and piles of
dirty dishes that look to be a month old. Five minutes
later, all the pots are washed, dried and put away. Great,
thought the man.
Now he told the centipede to do the dusting and vacuuming.
15 minutes later the house is spotless. Wow, thought the

man was sick of waiting, so he got up and went out to look
for the centipede.
As he opened the front door, there on the step was the
centipede. "Hey, whatcha' doing there? I sent you out for
the paper 45 minutes ago and now I find you out here
without the paper! What gives?"
"Hold on a minute!" said the centipede, "I'm still putting
on my boots!!!"
