Who is rich? He that is content. Who is that? Nobody.
--- Benjamin Franklin

Humans are not proud of their ancestors,
and rarely invite them round to dinner.
--- Douglas Adams


Judge: Did you or did you not see the gun being fired?

Witness: I did not see it being fired. I only heard it.

Judge: Well, that's hearsay. It's inadmissible as evidence.

As the witness left the stand and walked back to his seat,
his back was turned to the judge, at which point he laughed
out loud.

Immediately the judge recalled him to the bench and was
about to hold him in contempt of court.

Witness: Did you actually see me laugh?

Judge No, but I heard you.

Witness: Isn't that the same kind of inadmissible
evidence, Judge?

On the third day, God created all the animals of the earth
(especially the horse) to serve as potential food for the dog.

On the fourth day, God created honest toil so that man could
labor for the good of the dog.

On the fifth day, God created the tennis ball so that the dog
might or might not retrieve it.

On the sixth day, God created veterinary science to keep
the dog healthy and the man broke.

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to an impatient driver in London, Ontario Expensive hurry May 19, 2007 - London, Ontario, Canada - Canadian Press A man in London, Ont., was so mad at being given a speeding ticket that he raced away from the officer, rubber burning. London police say that didn't go over well with the officer, who had just caught the man doing 84 kilometres an hour in a 50 zone and slapped him with a $157 fine and four demerit points. The officer nabbed him a second time and gave him another ticket and another two demerit points, this one for doing 69 kilometres an hour in a 50 zone. The driver also picked up a $110 fine for making unnecessary noise. --------------------------- And I bet he took his sweet time writing the second batch of tickets. And in Ontario they report the points to the insurance company. 6 points will probably just about double the insurance cost. ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Richard for this story: My mom Molly, a difficult independent 75 year old, likes sitting by the park feeding the pigeons. One day she brought with her a whole bun of fresh bread just to feed her daily company. Little by little, pinch by pinch, she fed each pigeon with joy. She sat there without being noticed by anyone in our rich suburban neighborhood. Then suddenly a man in his early 40's rained on my mom's parade by telling her that she shouldn't throw away good food on a bunch of pigeons that can find food anywhere... when there are a lot of people starving in Africa , says the stranger. Then my mother said in crazed anger and without hesitation, "Well, I can't throw that far!" She handed him the bun and stated "You bring it to them!" =========================================== Get a Dish Network for as low as $19.99/month Free HD & DVR Equipment & Free installation Free Dish Network Satellite TV Systems We are nationwide Dishnetwork retailer! ================================== From the Tech Support Pits: From: Barbara Re: Wireless Home Network Dear Webby, Thanks so much for your Humor Letter, I look forward to it every day. You help a lot of people with tech stuff and was wondering if you could point me in the right direction for what I have in mind. I have a desk top Dell and a refurbished laptop Dell with cell phone Broad Band, WI-FI, DSL and dialup capability. I only use the cell phone Broad Band with Verizon when away from home on a month to month basis with my laptop, when I don't need it I cancel it so I don't have to pay for something I'm not using all the time. The question I have is what do I need to network with my desk top computer that is on DSL so I can use my laptop in another room without hooking up cords, etc. ? I hope I'm explaining myself so you can understand what I'm asking as I'm not all that computer literate. By the way, I live in West Tennessee in a rural area. Thank you for your help. Regards Barbara Dear Barbara You will need a wireless router, and a wireless network card for each machine. (if you haven't got them yet) The one for the laptop fits into the PCMCIA slot, the one for the desktop is a card that you stick into an empty slot in the motherboard. You probably already have the one for the laptop for use in hotels with wireless broadband. Go to ... setup.mspx print out that page and follow the instructions on it. I really mean it about printing it out! You will be off the net during the installation and won't have access to that page. You will even have the computer off for part of it. It's easy if you follow those instructions step by step and checkmark each step when completed. With a print-out you can take your time. Have FUN!

Workers renovating the Musical Arts Building on Indiana University's campus found the wallet sandwiched between two cinder block walls three weeks ago. An IU physical plant employee recognized John Mitchell from some of the pictures inside and contacted Mitchell's' son. "I was in bed asleep, and he said, 'They found your wallet,'" Mitchell said. "Well, that just blew my mind 'cause I didn't remember losing one.'" Mitchell, who was employed as a welder during the building's construction, said the wallet must have slipped from his pocket while he was working on some steel beams. The building was completed in 1971. Among the other items found in the long-lost wallet were Mitchell's driver's license, two credit cards, a Moose membership card and a layaway ticket for a $6 belt.

Morris and Manuel were partners in a very successful garment manufacturing company in N.Y.C. They Both were having a ' fling ' with Beckie....a young attractive model who worked for their firm. One rainy day Beckie announced to her two lovers, "I'm pregnant ! " Since both partners were married men they decided that Manuel would take Beckie to Mexico where she could have the baby without a scandal. Manuel took off for Mexico with Beckie while Morris ran the business and worried. Several months later an Email arrived for Morris from Manuel. It read..." Dear Partner: Beckie had Twins. Mine died at birth. What do you want to name yours ? ============================================= TRAINING WHOOPS Teaching your dog to do tricks is easy. All the books say so. Sometimes things go hilariously wrong. My Maltese puppy knows how to sit, and offer up a paw to shake. He just can't get them together. At play time he'll run to people on three legs, shaking his paw. Then he'll sit. Of course he gets attention, poor wee thing must have a hurt foot. Once at a dog show a cute Pug had stage fright. He went through his paces perfect, only going backwards, his eyes glued to his handlers face. The judge told a girl with a pretty Pomeranian to, "Circle around." Unfortunately, he made the motion with his hand. The tiny Pom did as she was told, every step of the way, she circled, and circled, with the crowd clapping, she circled to the end until even the judge laughed. A man watching, said condescendingly, "It's only those 'toy' dogs that can't get it right. Revenge is so sweet. He entered the ring with his handsome Mastiff. All went well, until the owner sneezed loudly. It sounded exactly like the command word, "Release." The Mastiff took him for his word and lit out to visit people in the stands. I should mention this was an amateur show, everyone got to put their dogs through a second run. Still it felt really good when best of show was pronounced. A four pound toy breed named, "Perfection," a Chihuahua! Stormy O' =============================================

======================================== A man once counseled his son that if he wanted to live a long life, the secret was to sprinkle a little gunpowder on his porridge every morning. The son did this religiously, and he lived to the age of 93. When he died, he left 14 children, 28 grandchildren, 35 great-grandchildren, and a 15 foot hole in the wall of the crematorium. ======================================== ======================================== , if you like the Dear Webby Daily Humor Letter, please vote for it at the Ezine Finder: Thanks for your votes!
