___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Sherman Lee Brown, 34, Ex-Con Punched Woman At McDonalds Drive-Thru Incensed that he did not receive his McDonald's food quickly enough, a 220-pound ex-con punched a female drive-thru employee in the face, according to Florida police who arrested the man this week on multiple felony charges. According to cops, Sherman Lee Brown, 34, slugged the victim during a 3:30 AM confrontation at a McDonald's in Leesburg, a city 45 miles north of Orlando. Brown, seen at right, was a passenger in his girlfriend's car on July 30 when he became angry at the waiting time in the drive-thru lane. Brown, cops allege, exited the vehicle and began yelling at the occupants in the car ahead of him in line. Upon reaching the drive-thru window, Brown then directed his ire at McDonald's employees, using "derogatory words such as 'cracker'" and shouting that they Hurry the fuck up, according to an arrest affidavit. The victim, cops say, told Brown she "was not going to serve him if he continued shouting and then asked the defendant to leave the property. With that, Brown allegedly again exited his girlfriend's car and threatened to hit the female worker. When the woman sought to close the drive-thru's sliding window, cops charge, Brown struck her in the face. The blow knocked the woman's glasses off and left her with an abrasion on her lip and "redness and swelling on her right cheek and eye." Aided by surveillance video, police identified Brown as a suspect in the attack. The McDonald's worker subsequently picked him out of a photo lineup. Brown was charged Wednesday with three felonies, including burglary and battery. He was released from the Lake County jail after posting $29,000 bond, and is scheduled for arraignment on September 16. Brown's rap sheet overflows with convictions and includes terms of incarceration in state prison and county jails. He has been convicted of domestic battery by strangulation; burglary; violating probation; aggravated stalking; violating a protective order; theft; marijuana possession; cocaine possession; possession of cocaine with intent to sell; resisting police; possession of controlled substances; possession of drug paraphernalia; and driving without a license.

Automatically move ALL your settings and programs. There are two polite people having dinner together. On the table there is a dish with one big piece of fish and one small piece of fish. They politely say to each other: "You may choose first." "No, you may choose first." And this goes on for a while. Then the first person says: "OK, I'll take first." And he takes the BIG piece of fish. The second person: "Why did you take the big piece? That's not polite!" The first person says: "Which piece would *you* have taken?" The second person replies: "Why, I would have taken the SMALL piece, of course." The first person says: "Well, that's what you have now!"

Thanks to Ken for this story: My wife and I were traveling on the #2 in Alberta, bucking 60 m.p.h. crosswinds and slowing down to a crawl whenever the wind blew a sheet of snow across the highway or when a semi passed us and made the highway invisible. It was almost a relief when a Mountie stopped us. He was diplomatic and didn't accuse us of being drunk, but he did suggest that we pull off the highway at the next motel and wait until the highway had been cleared. I asked him, "What do you people do in when the wind quits?" The mountie grinned and didn't miss a beat."Well, I just leave these two 50 pound ammo belts in the car. My wife takes her spare car battery out of her purse." -------------------------- Awww, it's not that bad. Just don't wear loose clothing or your clothing might be traveling a lot faster than you. ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Restaurant Nutritional Information If you are watching your weight, be sure to check out the nutritional information online before eating out.

___________________________________________________ The Lone Ranger and Tonto walked into a bar and sat down to drink a beer. After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said, "Who owns the big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stood up, hitched his gun belt, and said, "I do, ... Why?" The cowboy looked at the Lone Ranger and said, "I just thought you would like to know that your horse is about dead outside!" The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside, and sure enough, Silver was ready to die from heat exhaustion. The Lone Ranger got the horse water, and soon, Silver was starting to feel a little better. The Lone Ranger turned to Tonto and said, "Tonto, I want you to run around Silver and see if you can create enough of a breeze to make him start to feel better." Tonto said, "Sure, Kemosabe," and took off running circles around Silver. Not able to do anything else but wait, the Lone Ranger returned to the bar to finish his beer. A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the bar and asks, "Who owns that big white horse outside?" The Lone Ranger stands again, and claims, "I do, what's wrong with him this time?" The cowboy looks him in the eye and says, "Nothing, but you left your Injun runnin'." ___________________________________________________ There was a gentleman in the hospital bed next to me. He was covered with bandages from head to toe. I said to him, "What do you do for a living?" He said, "I'm a former window washer." I asked, "When did you give it up?" He replied, "Halfway down." ___________________________________________________ Little Johnny burst through the front door with a smile on his face. Surprised that Johnny was home so early, his mother asked, "Why are you home from school so early?" Johnny answered, "I was the only one who could answer a question." "Oh, really? What was the question?" his mother asked. "Who threw the blackboard eraser at the teacher?" __________________________________________________
