A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts. He communicates really well and I just act like I'm listening!"
We have a new kid in the office named Brian. Nice guy. Fresh out of college. So I was asking him about school the other day and he told me he belonged to a fraternity called Delta Upsilon. "Did you pledge in college?" he asked. I said, "Yeah, I belonged to 'I Tappa Kegga.'"

A man goes to consult a specialist about his medical problem. After the visit the man asks, "How much do I owe you?" "My fee is five hundred dollars," replies the physician. "Five hundred dollars? That's impossible. No one charges that much!" "In your case," the doctor replies, "I suppose I could adjust my fee to three hundred." "Three hundred dollars? For one visit? Ridiculous." "Well, then, could you afford two hundred?" "Who has that kind of money?" "Look, replies the doctor," growing irritated, "Just give me fifty bucks and get out." "I can give you twenty says the man. Take it or leave it." "I don't understand you," says the doctor. "Why did you come to the most expensive doctor in New York if you have no money?" "Listen, Doctor", says the patient, "When it comes to my health, nothing is too expensive." Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to three professional burglars in Toronto, Canada Sooner or later.... October 29, 2007 - Toronto, Canada - Reuters Two men and a woman who used an ordinary cardboard box to break into over 200 Toronto area fast-food joints were caught by lucky timing, police said on Friday. The trio arrived at their target with an oversized cardboard box, which they propped up against the restaurant's front door. One person hid in the box and used specialized tools to break into the restaurant, while the others stood guard with a police scanner and two-way radios. "They were able to, by experience, literally remove the glass from the pane of the door and then set the glass aside," said Detective Sergeant Reuben Strober of Toronto Police, adding that the burglars managed to disable most alarm systems at the same time. Even if the alarms were triggered, the suspects got away before police arrived. Over the course of their crime spree, they made off with some CDN $250,000 (US $260,000), police said. Strobel said the three were finally caught after police responded to an unrelated call in the neighborhood. They face 355 charges. ... ime_odd_dc

From the Tech Support Pits: From: NoFries Re: Multiple Anti-Spyware programs Dear Webby, I seem to recall you were the one that wrote about the silicone flexible keyboards that you pack in your laptop bag. Anyway, I thought you and your readers might be interested to know that ALDI, a German budget grocery store, has then on sale this week for $14.99 each. Here is the link ALDI - Special Purchases from October 28, 2007 not sure if they have Aldi in Canada but they are common in the US and the link has a store locator. I love your Daily Humor letter and have learned so much from your "Tech Support Pits", Q & A! My ? I recently upgraded from Win 98 to a laptop with Win XP Prof. I have ZoneAlarm, AVG and Ad-Aware, all free versions. I run Ad-Aware every couple days. According to Kim Komando, "... Use multiple anti-spyware programs; no one has a complete handle on spyware. Anti-spyware programs do not conflict." If so how many more and which freebie/s would best compliment Ad-Aware? Also, do I need to run Disk Cleanup, Defragment and Scan Disc? If so how often? Thanks for your Daily Humor Letter. I look forward to the laughs and great tips! Nofries Dear Nofries Kim Komando probably mean well, especially for his sponsors. However, the better anti-spyware programs should not be run simultaneously. For example, when Spybot-Search&Destroy is in resident mode and doing a live check on anything that comes in, it can cope OK with McAfee doing a live virus check at the same time, but not with a kitchen sink full of experimental freebies. If you want to try other anti-spyware programs to see if they list a certain new spyware 7 minutes earlier than Spybot- Search&Destroy, which they rarely do unless they themselves released that spyware, then turn Spybot off and run that other program alone. Also keep in mind that many of those programs show a lot of frivolous and non-existant fillers, so that you would believe they are doing a good job. Disk Cleanup has become obsolete with CrapCleaner. To defragment my drives, I use DisKeeper. It does it's work whenever the screensaver comes on. Have FUN! DearWebby

A young mother overheard her 5-year-old granddaughter playing "wedding." The wedding vows went like this: "You have the right to remain silent, anything you say may be held against you, you have the right to have an attorney present. You may kiss the bride."

Deeli's Kudos Westboro Perverts found guilty! BALTIMORE (Reuters) - A jury on Wednesday ordered a Kansas church to pay $10.9 million in damages to relatives of a U.S. Marine who died in Iraq, after church members cheered his death at his funeral. Church members said Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder's death was God's punishment of America for tolerating homosexuality, and they attended his 2006 funeral in Maryland with signs saying "You're going to hell" and "God hates you." The federal jury determined the Westboro Baptist Church, based in Topeka, and three of its principals invaded the privacy of the dead man's family and inflicted emotional distress. Albert Snyder, the Marine's father, testified that his son was not gay, but the church targeted the military as a symbol of America's tolerance of gays. Matthew Snyder died in combat in Iraq in March 2006. The jury awarded Snyder's family $2.9 million in compensatory damages plus $8 million in punitive damages in the first civil suit against the church, which has demonstrated at some 300 military funerals the past two years. The lawsuit said church Web sites vilified U.S. soldiers, accusing them of being indoctrinated by "fag propaganda." "I hope it's enough to deter them from doing this to other families. It was not about the money. It was about getting them to stop," said Snyder, of York, Pennsylvania. The church, which is unaffiliated with any major denomination, is headed by Rev. Fred Phelps, who has led a campaign against homosexuality for years. Most of the estimated 70 members of the church belong to his extended family.

After a long day of listening to a Texan brag, a New Yorker decided to show the Texan the Empire State Building. When the Texan put down New York's well-known landmark by saying "Heck, that's nothing. In Texas, we have outhouses bigger than that!" The New Yorker responded, "You need them!"
