A reporter from New York was visiting an old colleague who now edited a newspaper in a tiny Vermont town. "I don't see how you do it," the NY reporter said. "How can you drum up interest in the news when everybody in town knows what everybody else is doing?" "Sure they know," the editor said, "but they read the paper to see who got caught at it."

According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition depicting Santa's reindeer, every single one of them - from Rudolph to Blitzen - had to be a girl. We should've known. Only women would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night, not ask for directions, and not get lost. Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Greedy Crooks in Minocqua, Wisconsin Greedy crooks December 9, 2007 - Minocqua, Wisconsin - AP Dozens of drivers made a mad rush for cheap gas after a station employee accidentally changed the price to 33 cents a gallon. An employee closing Trig's Minocqua Shell for the night mistakenly entered the price of a gallon of gasoline as 32.9 cents instead of $3.299 on Monday night. He left about 10 p.m., but drivers could still use their credit cards to buy gas. Word of the bargain spread fast in the rural northern Wisconsin community, with 42 people buying 586 gallons of gas in an hour and 45 minutes. Local police saw the horde at the station and called store manager Andrea Reuland, who went to the station and pushed the emergency stop. "There were cars two deep at each of my pumps," said Reuland, who knew many of the drivers and told them they were being dishonest - the main store sign had the correct price. "I was very upset that there's that many dishonest people," she said. "They knew there was a problem, and they took advantage of an employee's mistake and I think that's terrible." "It was an honest mistake," Reuland said. "I could have done it." http://seattlepi.nwsource.com/national/ ... ource=mypi

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Re: I have been busy all day and evening fighting off a hacker attack. We are hosting, amongst many other high traffic domains the one belonging to the Orange (Pro West) activists in Ukraine. It is under attack from countless computers in Russia, Thailand and Myanmar, including military and educational machines. So far we blocked over 10,300 different IP numbers, but they are still attacking via virus infected computers from all over the place. You can see alist of the ones we blocked so far at http://64.237.99.118/droped.ip.txt There is a similar attack against our domain name servers, and I am falling behind answering help mail, while we fight that. So, please be patient. We WILL win! Have FUN! DearWebby

After the fall in Garden of Eden, Adam was walking with his sons Cain and Abel. They passed by the ruins of the Garden of Eden. One of the boys asked, "What's that?" Adam replied, "Boys, that's where your mother ate us out of house and home."

Deeli's Kudos December 6, 2007 - Gold Coast, Australia - AP After playing 650 holes of golf over 40 hours, Adam Engel didn't expect his marathon charity round to end with a bang: a chip-in birdie from about 45 yards. Playing off a handicap of two, Engel teed off with a glow-in-the-dark golf ball just after nightfall Tuesday and finished at midday Thursday on the ninth hole at Hope Island, a course designed by five-time British Open champion Peter Thomson. Engel said he was inspired to take on the challenge to raise money for the Leukemia Foundation after his best friend, Shane Burn, was stricken with the disease. The money donated was sponsored per hole, so he was reluctant to quit early. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/0712 ... y_marathon

A pastor was giving the children's message during church. For this part of the service, he would gather all the children around him and give a brief lesson before dismissing them for children's church. On this particular Sunday, he was using squirrels for an object lesson on industry and preparation. He started out by saying, "I'm going to describe something, and I want you to raise your hand when you know what it is." The children nodded eagerly. "This thing lives in trees (pause) and eats nuts (pause)..." No hands went up. "And it is gray (pause) and has a long bushy tail (pause)..." The children were looking at each other, but still no hands raised. "And it jumps from branch to branch (pause) and chatters and flips its tail when it's excited (pause)..." Finally one little boy tentatively raised his hand. The pastor breathed a sigh of relief and called on him. "Well," said the boy, "I KNOW the answer must be Jesus...but it sure sounds like a squirrel to me!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Disguising Gifts for Curious Kids Assign a number for each person in your family and then put the number on the presents instead of a name. That way, children won't go rummaging through presents to see which presents are theirs. When it is time to open gifts, tell everyone what their number is.
