"Mr. Clark, I'm afraid I have some bad news
for you," the doctor told his anxious patient,
"You only have six months to live."

The man sat in stunned silence for the next
several minutes...

Regaining his composure, he apologetically
told his physician that he had no medical
insurance -- "I can't possibly pay you in that time."

"OK," said the doctor, "Let's make it a year."

=========================================== Thanks to Phil from Oz for this story: One day some soldiers from a nearby Army camp saw a boy leading a donkey. They thought they would have some fun with him. "Say, boy," called out one of the soldiers. "You sure are keeping a tight rein on your brother, aren't you?" "Sure am," said the boy. "If I didn't he would probably join the Army...." =========================================== Give a friend a free gift subscription to the Humor Letter =========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Prudes of Brattleboro Brattleboro contemplating changing from bratty to snooty September 4, 2006 - Brattleboro, Vermont - AP Public nudity isn't new to this bastion of bohemia, but it usually bares itself in more subtle places than the downtown parking lot. This summer, a group of teenagers has disrobed near restaurants, bookstores and the town's many galleries, igniting a debate about whether Brattleboro should ban a practice long tolerated until now. "Brattleboro tends to be a laid-back town and pretty accepting of the unusual, but this is really pushing limits," said Police Chief John Martin. "It's clearly to outrage people, it's clearly rebelliousness." Now the police chief wants council to ban or restrict the long tolerated practise and change the casual attitude about it. ===========================================

Up until about a week or so I was getting it on a daily basis. Then all of a sudden it no longer came. 1st I went to my list of blocked mail & cleard then out. Your site was NOT on the list. Then I unsubscribed to it & subscribed to it at another hotmail addressl. I get it now daily there. I tried to subscribe again at this mailbox a couple of days ago but it has not come thru. I would prefer to get it here. What can I do fix this? I don't know who to contact. You are in my address box so it has always come in my inbox not junk. I miss reading it here but can read it in hotmail. Thanks for your hrlp. Sharon Dear Sharon Tell Mom or Gramma that you have been a good girl for a long time, even Dear Webby said so, and that you are ready for a grown-ups style address! Tell her that, being stuck with a play address censored by Sniveling Ninnies, causes you to start acting like a silly whiner, and not ladylike at all! Take her to the blog at and show her how often Yahoo has won a Sniveling Ninny Award for messing up the mail! I am sure you will be allowed to finally get a grown-ups style address, instead of a disreputable, disposable play-mail address. It's just nor proper that a nice young lady like you should have to dress in the skanky garb of lewd juveniles and have everybody snickering behind your back, and calling you "one of those silly yahoos". She probably won't let you use a domain based address like, because those cost $2 a month, but at least you should be able to use a Google address! Gmail is currently the most reliable of the free email addresses. If you need a referral for gmail, let me know, I'll gladly generate one for you! Have FUN!

The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water." Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "My goodness, doc, exactly what's my problem?" Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water." ========================================== Save up to 70% on printer inkjet cartridges 100% Guarantee & Free shipping Discount ink cartridges, refill kits & laser toners.

Pat is drinking at his local saloon and the bartender says to him, "You owe me quite a bit on your tab." "Sorry," says Pat, "I'm flat broke this week." "That's okay," says the bartender. "I'll just write your name and the amount you owe me right here on the wall." And Pat pleads, "I don't want any of my friends to see that." "They won't," says the bartender. "I'll just hang your parka over it until it's paid." =========================================== Deeli's Kudos September 1, 2006 - Los Angeles - AP George Johnson, considered California's oldest living person at 112 and the state's last surviving World War I veteran, had experts shaking their heads over his junk food diet. "He had terrible bad habits. He had a diet largely of sausages and waffles," Dr. L. Stephen Coles, founder of the Gerontology Research Group at the University of California, Los Angeles, said Friday. The 5-foot-7, 140-pound Johnson died of pneumonia Wednesday at his Richmond home in Northern California. "A lot of people think or imagine that your good habits and bad habits contribute to your longevity," Coles said. "But we often find it is in the genes rather than lifestyle." He remained in good health and continued driving until he was 102, when his vision began to fail. Johnson, who was blind and living alone until his 110th birthday when a caregiver began helping him, built the Richmond house by hand in 1935. He got around using a walker in recent years. Johnson's wife died in 1992 at the age of 92. The couple had no children. ============================================= The Express Empress and her Outlook Express tips are on a separate blog at You can post your questions there and read current and past queries and replies, or email to the Express Empress at, and she will post it into the blog for you. ============================================= Daily tip from Squeaky Dress Shoes The easiest solution to a fixing a squeaky shoe is to sprinkle some baby powder in the heel, under the insole if possible.

A little boy, playing in front of his house, saw him and called, "What've you got in your truck?" "Manure," the farmer replied. "What are you going to do with it?" asked the little boy. "Put it on strawberries," answered the farmer. "You ought to live here," the little boy advised him. "We put sugar on ours." ======================================== 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. Wednesday, Sept. 6 at 12:45 p.m. Baltimore, Maryland Perverts plan to harass the funeral for Marine Staff Sgt. Dwayne E. Williams at March Funeral Home, 4300 Wabash Ave., Baltimore, Maryland Wednesday, September 6 at 12:15 p.m. Boise, Idaho Perverts plan to harass the funeral for Army Sgt. Jeremy E. King at First Church of the Nazarene, 3852 N. Eagle Rd., Boise, Idaho Thursday, Sept. 7 at 1:15 p.m. Alpena, Michigan Perverts plan to harass the funeral for Navy CPO Paul J. Darga at First Baptist Church, 1261 W. Washington Ave., Alpena, Michigan Thursday, Sept. 7 at 10:15 a.m. Whittier, California Perverts plan to harass the funeral for Army Sgt. David J. Almazan at Sky Rose Chapel, 3888 Workman Mill Road, Whittier, California Friday, Sept. 8 at 8:15 a.m. Layton, Utah Perverts plan to harass the funeral for Army Pfc. Daniel G. Dolan at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 210 S. Chapel St., Layton, Utah Friday, September 8 at 1:15 p.m. Dorchester, Massachusetts. Perverts plan to harass the funeral for Army Spc. Edgardo Zayas at McHoul Funeral Home, 354 Adams Street, Dorchester, Massachusetts. 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.

So I went to your letter to find out how to contact you to ask you a question I know you must have answered way too many times... ......and here is the answer right at the beginning of the letter.
