20. All his life, Timmy wanted to be a train conductor.

He graduated top of his class in train school, and was hired by the most prestigious train company to conduct their new Super Train. This train could carry 1,000 passengers and was very expensive to manufacture.

Yet little Timmy had one fatal flaw. He had a very short attention span.

It just so happened that one day when Timmy was driving the train near a very sharp turn that required him to decrease the trains speed, a butterfly flew across the window.

Distracted, Timmy forgot to decrease the trains speed and ended up running it off the tracks, killing everybody inside expect for himself.

In the strange country that Timmy lived in, the punishment for killing a lot of people with a train was death by electric chair.

So the day came when the executioner approached Timmy in jail and asks what he wanted for his last meal.

Timmy thought for a minute, and then responded to the executioner by asking for a single banana.

The executioner thought this was a stupid request, but granted Timmy’s wish anyway. He gave him a single banana, which Timmy ate in 3 bites.

The executioner then strapped Timmy into the electric chair and pulled down the lever to start the flow of electricity.

When the smoke cleared, the executioner was shocked to see Timmy still alive, sitting in the electric chair!

Another strange law in the county Timmy lived in was if you survive the execution by electric chair, you got to walk away as a free man.

So Timmy was freed but was distraught about losing his job as a train conductor. It just so happened that the same prestigious train company was desperate for a qualified conductor to operate their new Mega Train.

They hired Timmy back to his old job.

Timmy was driving the train in the exact spot where his previous accident occurred, when another butterfly flew across his window and, well you can guess the rest…

So Timmy was back in the jail cell when the executioner asked for his last meal (again).

Timmy thought for a minute, and asked for two bananas.

A bit suspicious, the executioner brought him his bananas which Timmy ate in 3 bites each.

Timmy was strapped into the chair, and the lever was pulled, but when the smoke settled, he still wasn’t dead!

Again, Timmy walked free.

Again, the train company hired him back to drive their new Ultra Train.

Again, Timmy was conducting the train in the spot where the previous accidents had occurred.

Again, a butterfly flew across the window.

So Timmy was about to be executed for the third time when the executioner approached him. He stated that Timmy wouldn’t be given a last meal this time, so there would be no way he could eat his bananas.

Timmy was strapped into the electric chair and the executioner pulled the lever.

The look on the executioner’s face after he realized Timmy still hadn’t died was priceless.

“How are you still alive?” Demanded the executioner, “I didn’t give you any bananas this time!”

Timmy replied, “It’s not the bananas. I’m just a bad conductor.”
