Little Johnny was in his math class one day when the
teacher singled him out.
"If I gave you $200," the teacher began, "and you gave
$50 to Mary, $50 to Sally and $50 to Susan, what would
you have?"
"Well, it sure would be no orgy!" Johnny  answered,
"Helen, my girlfriend, would bust my skull for that!"

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to City Hall in Palermo, Sicily Chicago style electioneering May 4, 2007 - Sicily, Italy - AFP Palermo's city hall has hired 110 new bus drivers -- none of whom have a license to drive a bus, sources said Friday. The hirings have come ahead of May 13 and 14 local elections in the Sicilian city. Election season in Sicily often brings revelations of questionable municipal hirings, a practice denounced by critics as a vote-winning tactic. Italian paper Corriere della Sera reported the bus driver hirings on Friday and source close to the public transport president confirmed them. "For the moment, we can't do anything with them," the source said. "As long as they have not earned their permits, they are paid but must wait to be assigned." ===========================================

The year was 1952. Goodlove was a sailor home on leave from the U.S. Navy. The Hudson belonged to his grandfather, who lived in Western Washington. He'd long since forgotten about the lost leather billfold, until last month when he got a phone call from a pair of southern Idaho car collectors, Jon Beck, 61, and Chuck Merrill, 72, both from Twin Falls, told him they'd found the wallet. Inside were a $10 bill, a $1silver certificate, military identification, Social Security card and a handwritten Washington state driver's license. ''If it was in my sailor-mentality years, I might have attempted to, as they said in those years, 'make out,''' Goodlove, who now lives in California, told the Twin Falls Times-News, on why the wallet went missing. After an Internet search, Beck found Goodlove, now 75, at his home in San Diego.

A new miracle doctor was in town. He could cure anything and anybody, and everyone was amazed with what he can do. Everyone except for Mr. Smith, the town grouch. So Mr. Smith went to this 'miracle doctor' to prove that he wasn't anybody special. "Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can't taste nothin', so what are ya goin' to do?" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little, then tells Mr. Smith, "What you need is jar number 43." Jar number 43? Mr. Smith wonders. So the doctor brings the jar and tells Mr. Smith to taste it. He tastes it and immediately spits it out, "This is gross!" he yells. "I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Smith," says the doctor. That will be $100. So Mr. Smith goes home very mad. One month later, Mr. Smith goes back to the doctor along with a new problem, "Doc," he starts, "I can't remember!" The doctor scratches his head and mumbles to himself a little and tells Mr. Smith: "What you need is jar number 43..." Before the doctor finished his sentence, Mr. Smith fled the office... =============================================
