The king's daughter
Once upon a time there lived a king. The king had a beautiful daughter.
But there was a problem. Everything the princess touched would melt.
No matter what; metal, wood, plastic -- anything she touched would melt.
Because of this, men were afraid of her. Nobody would dare marry her.
The king despaired. What could he do to help his daughter? He consulted
wizards and magicians. One wizard told the king, "If your daughter
touches one thing that does not melt in her hands, she will be cured."
The king was overjoyed. The next day, he held a competition. Any man that
could bring his daughter an object that would not melt would marry her
and inherit the king's wealth. Three young princes took up the challenge.
The first prince brought a very hard alloy of titanium. But alas, once
the princess touched it, it melted. The prince went away sadly.
The second prince brought a huge diamond, thinking that diamond is the
hardest substance in the world and would not melt. But alas, once the princess
touched it, it melted. He too was sent away disappointed. The third
prince approached. He told the princess, "Put your hand in my pocket and
feel what is in there." The princess did as she was told, though she turned
red. She held it in her hand. And it did not melt!!! The king was
overjoyed. Everybody in the kingdom was overjoyed. And the
third prince married the princess and they both lived happily ever
Question: What was the object in the prince's pants?
They were M&M's of course. They melt in your mouth, not in your
hand. (What were you thinking?)
