What this country needs is more free speech
worth listening to.

Excerpts from Letters Sent to Landlords

1. The toilet is blocked and we cannot bathe the children
until it is cleared.

2. This is to let you know that there is a smell coming
from the man next door.

A student from the University of Washington has sold his
soul on eBay for $400.  He's a law student, so he probably
doesn't need it, but still, thatís not very much.

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to bank officials in Roses, Catalan, Spain Customer Service? May 15, 2007 - Madrid, Spain - AP A man making his first visit to a home he bought in a foreclosure a week ago in auction found the former owner's mummified body sitting on the living room couch, police said Tuesday. Coroners estimate the woman's remains had been there since 2001, when she stopped making payments on the residence in the coastal town of Roses in Spain's northeast Catalonia region. The body mummified instead of rotting partly because of the salty seaside air in Roses, a Catalan regional police official said, speaking on customary condition of anonymity. The woman, in her mid-50s, was estranged from her children in Madrid, and no one had reported her missing. She was not identified by officials. Authorities were surprised that bank officials who sold the residence after the foreclosure never bothered to examine it, the police official said. ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Ross for this story: A married couple walked into a tourist shop. The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. Dey makes you wild at sex." Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was. The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?" The Jamaican replied, "Just try dem on, Mon." So, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in many years! In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants, and grabbed a firm hold of the Jamaican's hips. The Jamaican then began screaming, "You got dem on the wrong feet! You got dem on de, wrong feet!" =========================================== 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: Eileen Re: What can be done about spam? Dear Webby, What can be done about spam? There must be some way to put a stop to it! Eileen Dear Eileen Spammers are protected by the CAN SPAM act. Unless you can buy more senators than they did, you are out of luck. You might be able to get a class action suit together against the Senate, for promoting spam and hurting the economy. Remember that when the time comes to vote, that the CAN SPAM act caused spam to triple over what it was before. If we had a canNOT SPAM law, that followed the money, it would be easy to lock up the spammers. If it was up to me, I would even penalize the idiots who send money to the spammers. In the meantime, I use MailWasher to filter the spam into the trash, unread. Have FUN!

Nepalese mountain guide Appa, 46, reached the 29,035ft summit with seven other sherpas on a charity expedition. They spent 20 minutes on the world's highest peak after filming their ascent for a documentary. Appa, who first conquered Everest in 1989, is three successful climbs ahead of rival sherpa Chewang Nima, 41. About 2,000 people have reached the top since Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay first did so in 1953.

The Smiths were shown into the dentist's office, where Mr. Smith made it clear that he didn't want to spend a lot of money. "No fancy stuff, Doctor," he ordered, "No gas or needles or any of that stuff. Just pull the tooth and get it over with." "I wish more of my patients were as stoic as you," said the dentist admiringly. "Now, which tooth is it?" Mr. Smith turned to his wife... "Show him your tooth, honey!" ============================================= Too Old I went along with a friend when she took her female Akita, Sasha to be bred. It is common practice for both the client and the owner of the dogs to oversee the mating, just to be sure a breeding did take place also to prevent the dogs from harming each other. The male was getting on in years but his owner didn't expect any problems. The impressive looking male Akita, General, was introduced to flirlty Sasha. She play bowed, spun in circles, barked, presented the baby making area to him. She was ready. Before she arrived, the owner had put a bowl of home cooked doggie stew out for General. The huge Akita looked at Sasha, looked at the bowl, back at the female. He put a paw on Sasha's shoulder as if in apology, then turned away to flop down in front of the stew to eat. Slowly, his eyes half closed, he was set to enjoy every morsal. I expected the owner to be a bit embarrassed. After all the client had driven 500 miles to have her Akita bred. Watching his male dog choose stew over a pretty female, he just shook his head then mournfully said ,"Please Lord, don't ever let me get that old!"
