There’s a story told of a bodybuilder on holiday in Africa who visited a local village. Impressed by his size the tribal chief asked him what he did with all his muscles. Rather than explain verbally the bodybuilder decided to demonstrate how he performed in competitions, and so he took off his shirt and began to strut his stuff with various poses all the time flexing his bulging muscles. It was an awesome sight but after a few minutes the chief looked puzzled and asked,
“What else do you use your muscles for?”
“Well, that’s about it,” replied the body builder.
“You mean that’s all you use your muscles for; just for showing off? asked the chief.
“Yep,” replied the bodybuilder.
The chief nodded his head in bewilderment. “What a waste!” he said as he turned to walk away.
