Bad Question!!!!

   On his 64th birthday Lt Columbo got a gift certificate from his wife Dee. The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction. After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, handed his ticket to the medicine man and wondered what he was in for.

    The old man slowly, methodically produced a portion, handed it to him, and with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This is powerful medicine and it must be respected. You take only a spoonful and then say ‘1-2-3’. ‘When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."

    Lt Columbo was encouraged. As he walks away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?" "Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,' he responded. "But when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon." Lt. Columbo was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited Dee to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, He took off his clothes and said, ‘1-2-3!’ Immediately, he was the manliest of men.
Dee was excited and took off her clothes. And then she asked, ‘What was the 1-2-3 for?’

   Now I hope you will learn that lesson "never end your sentences with a preposition" because you could end up with a dangling participle. Source 
  Peter Falk, the American actor who died on June 23 aged 83, is best remembered for his TV program Lt Columbo. I respect him as one of the top three detectives at the Hall of Fame. RIP.
