I don't necessarily agree with everything I say.

I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which,
when you looked at it in the right way,
did not become still more complicated.

A rather awkward freshman finally got up the nerve to ask
a pretty junior for a dance at the homecoming. She gave
him the once-over and said, "Sorry, I won't dance with a child."
"Sorry!" responded the underclassman.
"I didn't realize you were pregnant."


  A "Sniveling Ninny" award goes to
   Yahoo  mail  for gross incompetence

=========================================== Thanks to Sandie for Senior Golf An elderly gentleman went to the local drug store and asked the pharmacist for the little blue pill. The pharmacist asked "How many?" The man replied, "Just a few, maybe a half dozen. I cut each one into four pieces." The pharmacist said, "That's too small a dose. That won't get you through intimacy. The old fellow said, "Oh, I'm past ninety years old and I don't even think about intimacy much anymore. I just want it to stick out far enough so I don't pee on my new golf shoes." =========================================== Give a friend a free gift subscription to the Humor Letter =========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mirko Saccani and his wife, Gaynor Fairweather in Hongkong Poor Customer Service September 7, 2006 - Hong Kong - The Scotsman A high profile Hong Kong banker yesterday won a court case against her salsa dance instructors, who were ordered to return her deposit paid out for lessons she never completed. Monica Wong, 61, the head of HSBC's private banking business in Asia, had agreed to pay HK$12 million to her dance teachers for eight years of unlimited private lessons and competitions to commence in 2004. After she paid over half the total as a deposit, the relationship with Mirko Saccani and his wife, Gaynor Fairweather, turned sour. Saccani admitted in court to calling Wong a "lazy cow" and telling her to "move her a**" during a packed dance session in 2004. Wong, who said she suffered an emotional breakdown from the insults, successfully sued the couple for the return of her deposit. ----------------------- HK$ 12 Million is a bit over 1.5 Million US Dollars. ===========================================

Yahoo wouldn't let it through, but now they do. Now NORTON ANTIVIRUS blocked the September 9th letter. Said it was damaged with a virus? I got the September 8th letter with out any trouble? What can I do? They may block it all the time-I sure hope not? Troubled. Dorothy Dear Dorothy I have not recommended Norton since 2000. With Windows XP it's more hassle than it's worth, and as you see yourself, it malfunctions. Unless Yahoo added a virus, the Humor Letter can not contain a virus. It does not have any attachments and is plain HTML or text. (HTML is text too, plus a whole bunch of goofy brackets). Any program claiming that text (or HTML) contains a virus, is obviously malfunctioning badly. Considering the constant problems Yahoo has with their mail, it's possible that they got infected again, but I doubt that. Otherwise other people would have reported the same. Most likely you have two totally separate problems: 1) Unreliable mail because of your Yahoo address AND 2) Anti Virus program malfunction due to Norton. My first recommendation would be that you get a decent email address. Amongst the free ones, from Google is currently the best one. I'll gladly generate a referral for you, if you need one. My second recommendation is that you get rid of Norton. On XP it's more hassle than it's worth. My favorite anti virus protection is McAfee, but ANY anti virus protection other than Norton, will be an improvement for you. Have FUN!

So when the policeman arrived at the upstairs apartment, he heard furniture being thrown around and signs of a good old family brawl. He rapped on the door with his night stick and the door was opened by a very determined and disheveled woman. "Who's head of the family here?" "You just wait a minute and I'll tell you.

It's a redwood in Redwood National Park on the Northern California coast. The redwood tree, named Hyperion, stands 378.1 feet tall, 8 feet taller than the previous record holder, another coast redwood. The San Francisco Gate reported that the group has found about 135 redwoods that reach higher than 350 feet. The Hyperion was the tallest, followed by Helios, which stands at 376.3 feet, and Icarus, which stands at 371.2 feet, according to the paper. Officials aren't pinpointing the exact location of the trees, out of concern too many visitors could damage the delicate ecology of the areas. Researchers plan to climb the giant Hyperion in the coming weeks and drop a tape measure to confirm its exact height. But the paper reported that the tape drops can't be conducted for at least two weeks because of National Park Service restrictions to protect the marbled murrelet, a small seabird that nests in old-growth redwoods. ============================================= 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 Put a Pan Under Sink When Making Repairs If you change the faucet or drain in your kitchen or bathroom sink, put a shallow pan under the sink to catch any drips.

"If Philadelphia is 100 miles from New York and Chicago is 1000 miles from Philadelphia and Los Angles is 2000 miles from Chicago, how old am I?" One student in the back of the class raised his hand and when called upon said "Professor you're 44.." The Professor said "You're absolutely correct, but tell me, how did you arrive at the answer so quickly?" The student said. "You see professor, I have a brother; he's 22, and he's half nuts . . ." ======================================== 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.

Madaras at Our Lady of Fatima Church, 229 Danbury Rd., Wilton, Connecticut 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.

He made a special case of making fun of one of the older workmen. After several minutes, the older worker had enough. "Why don't you put your money where your mouth is?" he said. "I will bet a week's wages that I can haul something in a wheelbarrow over to that outbuilding that you won't be able to wheel back." "You're on, old man," the braggart replied. "Let's see what you got." The old man reached out and grabbed the wheelbarrow by the handles. Then, nodding to the young man, he said, "All right. Get in." ======================================== Thanks to Dianne for this Bonus Link: Herons, etc ======================================== , if you like the Dear Webby Daily Humor Letter, please vote for it at the Ezine Finder: Thanks for your votes!
