Two ministers were discussing the decline in morals in the
modern world.  "I didn't sleep with my wife before I was
married," said one clergyman self-righteously. "Did you?"

"I don't know," said the other. "What was her maiden name...?"

"Clarity," he said very firmly. "And on what issues are you looking for clarity?" I probed. "Well," he said in a less confident tone, "I don't know." ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Taliban Smokers wanted Troops battle 10-foot marijuana plants Oct 13, 8:48 AM (ET) OTTAWA (Reuters) - Canadian troops fighting Taliban militants in Afghanistan have stumbled across an unexpected and potent enemy -- almost impenetrable forests of 10-feet-high marijuana plants. General Rick Hillier, chief of the Canadian defense staff, said on Thursday that Taliban fighters were using the forests as cover. In response, the crew of at least one armored car had camouflaged their vehicle with marijuana. "The challenge is that marijuana plants absorb energy, heat very readily. It's very difficult to penetrate with thermal devices ... and as a result you really have to be careful that the Taliban don't dodge in and out of those marijuana forests," he said in a speech in Ottawa. "We tried burning them with white phosphorous -- it didn't work. We tried burning them with diesel -- it didn't work. The plants are so full of water right now ... that we simply couldn't burn them," he said. Even successful incineration had its drawbacks. "A couple of brown plants on the edges of some of those (forests) did catch on fire. But a section of soldiers that was downwind from that had some ill effects and decided that was probably not the right course of action," Hillier said dryly. One soldier told him later: "Sir, three years ago before I joined the army, I never thought I'd say 'That damn marijuana'." Due to the size of the marijuana forests they are now seeking 5000 new recruits with experience setting marijuana on fire and some experience / immunity / resistance to it's effects. ===========================================

She gave a personal check in payment and said to the clerk, "I suppose you will want some identification." He replied, without hesitation, "No ma'am, that won't be necessary." "How come?" asked the woman. "Crooks don't buy peat moss," answered the clerk. ===========================================

Is there a way to hide it? Leslie Dear Leslie Yes, sure there is. Just use a <.font color="white"> before it, and a <./font> after it. It will blend into your white page and not be visible, UNLESS you wipe the mouse over that exact spot. It is usually easy enough to select a spot where visitors are not likely to wipe their mouse over it. Have FUN! DearWebby ========================================== A couple of boys are fishing at their special pond off the beaten track. All of a sudden, the local game warden jumps out of the bushes. Immediately, one of the boys throws down his rod and starts running through the woods. The game warden is hot on his heels. After about a half mile, the young man stops to catch his breath, so the game warden finally catches up to him. "All right," the official gasps. "Let's see yer fishin' license, boy!" The boy pulls out his wallet and gives the game warden a valid fishing license. "Well, son," the man says, "you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!" "Yes, sir," replies the young guy, "but that other guy who was back there, whom I don't know, he might not have had a license." ========================================== Save up to 70% on printer inkjet cartridges 100% Guarantee & Free shipping Discount ink cartridges, refill kits & laser toners.

October 11, 2006 - Palatka, Florida - AP A Putnam County teen is accused of printing fake cash. According to police reports, the 16-year-old was turned in by his own mother for making home-made 20-dollar bills. Police said the counterfeit money was not high quality, and there have not been any reports of the counterfeits being used in local stores. The teen told authorities he found the template for his fake bills on a pop-up ad when he was using the computer and that he made them as a joke. The teen is now behind bars at a juvenile facility. Counterfeiting is a federal offense. ============================================= 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 Supermarket Mistakes Watch the display screen at the register as your groceries are being rung up.
