There comes a moment when you have to stop revving up the car and shove it into gear. --- David Mahoney
Thanks to Sandie for this story: Discovering that I'd overslept, I abandoned my usual morning routine and rushed out. In the van though, I realized I had time to stop for a take-out coffee. I got my coffee and returned to the van, only to find that I had not only left it running, but had locked it too! The day was going from bad to worse. I returned to the shop, sheepishly explained my situation to the clerk and asked if I could borrow a broom. I managed to open a side window and pop the lock on the back door using the broom handle. When I returned the broom, the clerk said, "I know you're having a bad day, but..." "I know, I know," I interrupted. "You want to know how I can go fetch a locksmith riding your broom and be back so fast." "No," she said. "I wanted to tell you that your shirt is on inside out."
Upon retiring from the service, Don, needed a new ID card showing he had gone from active duty to retirement status. But the photo taken of him was not particularly good and he wasn't at all quiet about it. "If I have to carry that ID around with me for the rest of my life," he complained to the photographer, "I want a better picture." "Want a better picture?" asked the photographer defiantly. "Then bring us a better face!"

A salesman attending a meeting on the coast was held up when a severe storm and a flood washed out the local airport. He wired his office: "Delayed by storm. Send instructions." His boss wired back: "We'll answer your calls. Your vacation has been approved to start immediately." Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Zachary N. Skinner, 19 of Bradenton, Florida In bigger trouble now October 16, 2007 - Bradenton, Florida - AP A 19-year-old man who was pulled over for driving at speeds over 100 mph told a deputy he was rushing to get home by dark because he didn't want to get into trouble for breaking his curfew. Zachary N. Skinner was clocked going 101 mph in a 2006 Hyundai and drove even faster before Deputy Grant Steube caught up with him Sunday night, a Manatee County sheriff's report said. When Skinner finally pulled over at about 8:20 p.m., Steube asked him why he was driving so fast. "He stated he was supposed to be home by dark and was afraid of getting into trouble," the deputy's report said. He "stated he didn't care about anything except getting home on time." Skinner was arrested on a charge of reckless driving, a first-degree misdemeanor. Court records show it was Skinner's fifth ticket in the past 11 months, including two for speeding and one for careless driving. ... pe=bondage

Driving my friend Steve and his girlfriend to the airport, I passed a billboard showing a bikini-clad beauty holding a can of beer. Steve's girlfriend glanced up at it and announced, "I suppose if I drank a six-pack of that brand, I'd look like her." "No," Steve corrected. "If I drank a six-pack, then you'd look like her....."

Deeli's Kudos October 17, 2007 - UK - Gimundo These days, the world is abuzz with news of a brand-new bra but you won't find this exclusive undergarment on any Victoria's Secret rack yet. English researchers are still putting the finishing touches on the so-called "smart bra," which could be commercially available in about two years. So what's so special about this exclusive bra? Is it diamond- studded? Does it double its wearer's cup size? No but it does something much more impressive: It can save lives. Using advanced heat-detection technology, the new smart bra can detect signs of breast cancer at the earliest stages. A microwave antenna woven into the bra's fabric is able to pick up on abnormal temperature changes that could indicate the presence of a small tumor in the breast tissue. When the bra senses a possible problem, a visual or audio alarm will go off, alerting the bra's wearer to visit her doctor as soon as possible. ... Save_Lives

One day a co-worker told my friend, Stan, that she was going home early because she didn't feel well. Since Stan was just getting over something himself, he wished her well and said he hoped it wasn't something he had given her. A fellow worker piped up, "I sure hope not. She has morning sickness."
