'The most terrifying words in the English language are: I'm from the government and I'm here to help.' --- Ronald Reagan We cannot always control our thoughts, but we can control our words, and repetition impresses the subconscious, and we are then master of the situation." --- Florence Scovel Shinn
Tyhanks to Sandie for this story: We went to the movies the other night. I sat in an aisle seat, as I usually do, because it feels a little roomier. Just as the feature was about to start, a baby boomer from the center of the row got up and started working her way out. "Excuse me. Sorry! Oops. Excuse me, pardon me, gotta hurry. Oops! Excuse me." By the time she got to me, I was trying to look around her and I was a little impatient, so I said, "Couldn't you have done this a little earlier?" "No!" she said in a loud whisper. "The 'Turn Off Your Cell Phone, Please' message just flashed up on the screen and mine is out in the car."
My friend, Monica, is an accomplished harpist who frequently plays for weddings, receptions, parties and other such events. She is also blonde and has an appropriately cherubic face. She was on her way to an engagement at a hotel and stepped into an elevator with her large golden harp. Just before the doors closed, a distinguished gray-haired man stepped on. As the elevator rose, he looked thoughtfully first at her and then her harp and asked, "How far up does this elevator go?"

Is it proper for a man to profit from the mistakes of another?" a Angus mcKenzie asked his minister. "Definitely not," was the preacher's answer. "Are you absolutely certain?" "Yes, my son, absolutely." "Okay. In that case, I wonder if you'd mind returning that $25 I gave you after my wedding last year?" Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gillian Gibbons in Karthoum, Sudan Extremely clueless teacher November 26, 2007 - Khartoum - AFP Thanks to Eric for this submission A British teacher in Sudan on Monday faced lashes and deportation as she languished in police custody accused of insulting the Muslim prophet for allowing young children to name a teddy bear Mohammed. Sudanese police arrested Gillian Gibbons in Khartoum on Sunday after parents complained that she allowed six-year-old boys and girls at an expensive English school to name the bear, and so "insult" the Prophet Mohammed. The penalty carries the death sentence for Muslims in Sudan, where Islamic Sharia law is enforced in Khartoum and the north, but a non-Muslim could face a maximum penalty of lashes, prison, a fine and deportation if found guilty. Sudanese officials on Monday closed the fee-paying Christian-run Unity High School until further notice. The British headmistress of the school, where the majority of pupils are Muslim from well-off Sudanese and expatriate families, was unreachable. The Sudanese Media Centre, a news agency close to the country's intelligence services, quoted the school as apologising and claiming the teacher had been sacked. For devout Muslims, any physical depiction of Mohammed is blasphemous and strictly forbidden. The British Foreign Office website says that while Sudan's constitution says non-Muslims shall be exempt from Sharia law, this has not yet resulted in practical changes and that people should expect Sharia law to apply. ... ain_arrest Considering the riots and killings because of some cartoons depicting Mohammed a year ago, a teacher can be expected to know the basics of the laws of countries that she goes to teach and live in. It would be unreasonable to expect a country to change their beliefs and laws overnght, just because of one thoughtless bimbo.

Deeli's Kudos November 28, 2007 - Fort Myers, Florida - News Press Thanks to Sandie for this submission. Fort Myers police officer Bradley “B.J.” Ades has had all kinds of training, but nothing prepared him for what happened Monday night. Ades, who has been on the force 10 years, helped deliver a baby in the parking lot at Gulf Coast Hospital in south Fort Myers. The mother, 24-year-old Elvira Vasquez of Bonita Springs, gave birth to a 7-pound, 6-ounce boy at 10:35 p.m. The newborn arrived in a van parked just yards from the hospital entrance. Ades first noticed trouble as he walked from the hospital entrance to the parking lot after conducting a follow-up interview with a patient who had been in a traffic accident. He saw two men waving frantically and speaking Spanish. “They said two words that I could gather: ‘sister’ and ‘baby,’” said Ades, 29, who has no children of his own. The top of the baby’s head had started to crown after Ades ran to the van and checked on Vasquez. The officer sent a man in the parking lot to get a doctor. But before anyone arrived, Ades caught the baby in his hands and handed him to his mother. “Once I heard the baby cry and knew it was all right, I was on Cloud Nine,” he said. “Who gets to deliver a baby? What cop does this?” Ades has little experience with babies, he said. Police officers are not trained to deliver children. The father, Rigoberto Gomez, had something to say when asked what they named the baby. “Ivan ­ because he was born in van,” he said through a translator.

A kindergarten pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat. She asked if it was dead or alive. "Dead," she was informed. "How do you know?", she asked. "Because I pissed in his ear and it didn't move," said the child innocently. "You did WHAT?!?", the teacher squealed in surprise. "You know," explained the boy, "I leaned over and said 'pssst' and he didn't move."
