The 11th Commandment

A friend of mine posted on Facebook that she just watched a guy drop a potato chip, pick it up, and eat it.   OFF THE FLOOR IN THE AIRPORT. She said she guessed it was the 5 second rule.

After I got through barfing, I remembered a story my old boss told me that makes me giggle every time I think about it. 

His 7 year old daughter had a playmate over one day.  The playmate dropped an M&M, picked it up, said "5 second rule!" and ate it.  My boss said "WHAT!?  What's the 5 second rule?"  She said "If it stays on the ground less than 5 second you can eat it."

He said "Where did you here that?".  She paused, looking thoughtful, then said,

"I think it's in the Bible!".
