>From Bobbie
I'm a Technician at a Chevrolet dealer where, a number of
years ago, a somewhat irate customer insisted we look at
her car before the handful of people that were in line
ahead of her. There was a hideous buzzing noise
emanating from the dash - you guessed it! - her battery
powered lover had turned itself on inside the glove box!

As we removed it from the car to display the cause, she was
instantly silenced while the surrounding customers could
barely contain themselves.

Needless to say, we never saw that customer again.

Owing to the advance in medical technology, surgical
technique and the fact that silicone breast implants have
been determined to be perfectly safe, a California
cosmetic surgery practice is opening a new office where
breast augmentation surgery is done on an outpatient
basis in about 30 minutes, not counting the paperwork,
which you can do online at home.

They are calling the practice "Jiffy Boob."

Bought my girlfriend a mood ring the other day.

The stockbroker called his client and said, "Sam, I have
good news and bad  news."

Sam said, "Tell me the bad news first."

The stockbroker said, "Sam, I'm sorry, but I lost all of
your money."

Sam said, "What's the good news?"

The stockbroker replied, "I got laid last night."

Missouri children kidnapped by mother without custody
found in Arizona

Three children who were reportedly kidnapped in Missouri
have been found safe in Arizona.

U.S. Marshals say Brittany Barnes didn't have custody of
her three kids, ages 8, 9 and 10, when she took them on
March 23. They were found on May 13 at Casino Del Sol in
Tucson.

Officials said Barnes and her wife, Ceairah Beverly, had
fled with the kids without permission during a scheduled
visitation.

An arrest warrant was issued on April 8, and investigators
discovered information that placed all five of them in
Arizona.

Marshals began doing surveillance days earlier after
tracking them down to a hotel near Tucson.

Eventually, authorities found their vehicle parked outside
of Casino Del Sol, and confirmed that the group had been
staying at the hotel there.

Barnes and her wife were both arrested and are awaiting
extradition to Missouri.

Re: Investment advice

Dear Webby
What do you think about all those investment advice
newsletters out there?
Ian

Dear Ian
If any of those investment advisors knew what they are
doing, then they would invest in their own scams, not try
to get you to invest in them.

Have FUN!

Ed and Ted met for the first time in twenty years. "So,
how's life been for you?" Ed asked.

"Not too good," Ted replied. "My first wife died of
cancer, my second wife turned out to be a lesbian and ran
off with another woman and took all our savings, my son's
in prison for trying to kill me, my daughter got run over
by a bus, my house was hit by a low-flying aircraft, my
vintage car rolled off the dockside into the sea, I had
to have my dog put down recently, my doctor says that I
have an incurable disease and to cap it all, my business
has just gone bust."

"Oh dear, that sounds terrible." Ed said. "What business
were you in?"

"I sell lucky charms," said Ted.

_____________________________________________ Every night after dinner, Harry took off for the local watering hole. He would spend the whole evening there and always arrive home, well inebriated, around midnight each night. He usually had trouble getting his key to fit the keyhole and couldn't get the door open. And, every time this happened, his wife would go to the door and let him in. Then, she would proceed to yell and scream at him for his constant nights out and coming home in a drunken state. But, Harry still continued his nightly routine. One day, the distraught wife was talking to a friend about her husband's behavior. The friend listened and suggested, "Why don't you treat him a little differently when he comes home? Instead of berating him, why don't you give him some loving words and welcome him home with a kiss? Then, he might change his ways." The wife thought that this might be a good idea. That night, Harry took off again after dinner. And, at about midnight, he arrived home in his usual condition. His wife heard him at the door. She quickly opened it and let Harry in. Instead of berating him as she had always done, this time she took his arm and led him into the living room. She sat Harry down in an easy chair, put his feet up on the foot stool, and took his shoes off. Then, she went behind him and started to cuddle him a little. After a short while, she whispered to Harry, "It's pretty late, dear. I think we should go upstairs to bed now, don't you think?" Harry replied in his inebriated state, "Heck, I guess we might as well. I'll get in trouble when I get home anyway!" ______________________________________________ --------From Linda What did Gallileo Gallilei get jailed for? He was an astronomer and inventor, as far as I remember school. Linda-------- Hi Linda Gallileo Gallilei wrote about the sun being the center of the solar system, not the earth and Rome, and with the earth rotating around the sun, much like the moon is rotating around the earth. Rome, the Catholice church, did not like that idea. ______________________________________________
