Thanks to Roberta for this story:
Thibodeau wants a job, but the foreman won't hire him until
he passes a little math test. "Here's your first question,"
the foreman said. "Without using numbers, represent the
number 9."

"Witout numbers?" Thibodeau says, "Dat is easy."
And he proceeds to draw three trees.

"What's this?" the boss asks.

"Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree make nine,"
says Thibodeau.

"Fair enough," says the boss. "Here's your second question.
Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99."

Thibodeau stares into space for a while, then picks up the
picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each
tree.  "Ere you go."

The boss scratches his head and says, "How on earth do you
get that to represent 99?"

"Each of da trees is dirty now. So, it's dirty tree, and dirty tree,
and dirty tree. Dat is 99."

The boss is getting worried that he's going to actually have
to hire this guy, so he says, "All right, last question.  Same
rules again, but represent the number 100."

Thibodeau stares into space some more, then he picks up
the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each
tree and says, "Ere you go. One hundred."

The boss looks at the attempt. "You must be nuts if you think
that represents a hundred!"

Thibodeau leans forward and points to the marks at the base
of each tree and says, "A little doggie came along and crap
by each tree. So now you got dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree
and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd, dat make one hundred.
So, when I start?"

out of the ground easily, it was a valuable plant.

goes to a wanna-be robber in Poggersdorf, Austria

Insufficient homework

August 24, 2006 - Vienna - Reuters
A would-be robber was arrested after he tried to hold up
his local town hall, mistaking it for a bank, Austrian police
said Wednesday.

Wearing a mask and waving a toy pistol, the unemployed man
burst into the town hall in the village of Poggersdorf,
southern Austria, and shouted: "Hold-up, hold-up!"

The building has a sign signaling there is a cash point on
the outside wall, police said. (ATM for paying parking

He realized his mistake when an employee explained to him
where he was, police said in a statement, adding he fled to
a nearby forest.

The 34-year-old man was arrested when he came back later
to pick up his motorbike which he had parked outside the
town hall.

Re: Elongated pictures

Dear Webby
 Love your Humor letter especially the tech help.
You gave some advise on making things larger including
pictures, can't remember when you gave it, I followed the
instructions and things are larger. But my pictures are all
elongated and another thing happened at the same time.
When ever I hit my mouse it makes a loud click from my
desktop when I change pages. Also on my IM the sub-titles
across the top are like high lighted. What did I do wrong
and how do I go back to the way it was?

Thank you

Dear Darlene
The reason your pictures appear elongated is probably that
you chose a setting intended for a wide aspect ratio monitor.
Right-click on the desktop,
and in there try different resolutions.
I use 1600 x 1200. That looks fine on my monitor
( 14 1/2" x 10 3/4" viewing area ), and when I design a
5" x 6" ad, it measures precisely 5" x 6" on the screen.

So, play with the resolution settings until you find one
that suits your monitor and your eyes.

Re the mouse click, you can set that in the Control Panel,

Have FUN!

Deeli's Kudos
Bonehead for 'dodging traffic' but Kudo for tuening in the money ...

August 24, 2006 - Paddock Lake, Wis. - AP
A sales representative on the way to a business call made
an unscheduled stop - in the middle of the highway - after
noticing the cash swirling around his car.

"I was a little west of Paddock Lake and all of a sudden
there was money flying in my windshield and grill," Ted
Neitzke said.

Neitzke, 58, of Random Lake, said he stopped, got out of
his car and began collecting the bills while dodging the

"So here's this guy - me - in the middle of Highway 50 with
a tie picking up money," he said. "It was just kind of
sliding along the road. When a car or truck would drive
by, it would go one way, and when another one would drive
by, it would go the other way."

He managed to pick up a dozen $20 bills and two $1 bills,
a total of $242.

Then he called the Kenosha County Sheriff's Department.

"I was just hoping it wasn't anybody's rent money or
somebody who needed it," he said. "I figured it was the
right thing to do."

The sheriff's report said the money Neitzke collected
about 4:30 p.m. Tuesday was placed in an evidence locker,
and if no one claims it, Neitzke will get it.

Sheriff's spokesman Horace Staples said not everyone would
have turned in the cash.

"When people do that, it's very unique," Staples said.
"Normally people would look around and pocket the money."

Daily tip from
Movie Rewards Cards
If you frequent movie theaters regularly, check and see if
they have a Movie Rewards program. You get points every
time you purchase tickets and when you get enough points,
you get something free like popcorn, a drink or a free
movie ticket. They usually give away small drinks and
popcorns but they'll allow you to upgrade for the difference
in cost which is usually minimal.

One day Little Johnny's teacher, decided to play a spelling
game. She gave a letter of the alphabet and the kids have
to spell a word starting with that letter, then use it in a
sentence. Starting with "A" Little Johnny's hand was
continually in the air, but the teacher ignored him.
Little Johnny had a propensity for lewd remarks and could
turn the simplest of statements into sexual innuendo.
The teacher was afraid to let Johnny use any letter that
he could turn into a lewd statement.

"All right now, Susan, you first?" said the teacher.

"A is for Ape, A-P-E, An ape likes bananas" answered Susan.

"Excellent " said the teacher.

She continues on through the alphabet. Finally she reaches F.
Now she will NOT let Little Johnny answer this under any
circumstances so she asks Mary.
"F is for Fairy F-A-I-R-Y, they're little girls who live
among the flowers", Mary replies.

"Great", says the teacher. "Now we get to G".

Only Little Johnny has his hand up so the teacher thinks
about this and decides "G" is a safe one.
"Yes Johnny?" She asks.

"G is for Gnome G-N-O-M-E. A Gnome lives among the
flowers too".

"Johnny! That's Excellent!" Exclaims the teacher, very happy
that for once he wasn't out of line.

Little Johnny goes on to say, "yes, teacher, he's the one
who knocks up the fairies!"


Pervert Alert

If you are near any of these towns, please help shield the
families of a fallen hero from the Westboro Perverts

The members of the Westboro Perverts harrass the families of
fallen soldiers and miners during the funeral, and proclaim that
their deaths are Gods punishment for US non-discrimination laws.

Tuesday, August 29 at 9:45 a.m. Northville, Michigan
Perverts plan to harass the funeral for
Army Pvt. Joseph R. Blake at
Ward Evangelical Presbyterian Church,
40000 6-mile Rd.,
Northville, Michigan

Tues., Aug. 29 at 10:15 a.m. Redmond, Oregon
Perverts plan to harass the funeral for
Marine Lance Cpl. Randy L. Newman at
Hooker Creek Event Center,
Deschutes Co. Fairground,
Redmond, Oregon

Tuesday, August 29  at 10:15 a.m. Hiawatha, Kansas
Perverts plan to harass the funeral for
Army Cpl. Jeremiah S. Cole at
First Baptist Church, 210 Lodge Road,
Hiawatha, Kansas.

I am not endorsing those non-discrimination laws. Military
hiring practises should not be dictated by the ACLU.
However, I applaud ANY ACTION to shield the bereaved
families of miners and war heroes, - who had absolutely
nothing to do with the Government giving in to the ACLU -,
from those despicable Westboro perverts.
