A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but after a while he gets to know something. --- Wilson Mizner
Thanks to Connie for this report: In a small town, a man just opened a small store selling trumpets and guns. One day his neighbor pays him a visit and says: "So how is your strange business going?" "What do you mean strange?" "Because you sell only trumpets and guns!" "So?" "Well, let me put it this way, what do you sell the most, trumpets or guns?" "It evens itself out. Each time a customer buys a trumpet, one of his neighbors buys a gun."
At a local coffee bar, a young woman was expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to some of her friends. "The man I marry must be a shining light amongst company. He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And stay home at night!" A grandmotherly patron at the next table overheard and spoke up, "Girl, what you are asking for is a television set!"

The aged patient doddered into the doctor's office with a serious complaint. "Doc, you've got to do something to lower my sex drive." "Come on now GopherBait," the doctor said, "your sex drives all in your head." "That's what I mean, you've got to lower it a little." Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Bored Meddlers January 3, 2008 - Couer D'Alene, Idaho - AP Several older residents of a town in Idaho are protesting plans to open a funeral home across the street from a senior centre, saying it would be a little too close for comfort. About 100 people have signed a petition calling on the City Council to deny the Aspen Funeral Home the right to lease a building across the street from the Lake City Senior Center as a funeral home. The city's planning commission approved a special use permit in December for the business, but a neighbour appealed the decision, citing concerns over traffic and parking. Sixty-five-year-old Marg Dunkle, who signed the petition, says the idea of a funeral home across the street gives her an uncomfortable feeling. But 81-year-old Doy Seng has a practical view of the proposed funeral home saying that since "we're all ready to go," a funeral home nearby "will be handy." http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/capress/0801 ... me_protest

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Elaine Re: Which browser to design for Dear Webby, there are so many browsers out there now that it is hard to decide for which one to design a site for. Each one seems to have a few things different, and it is too timeconsuming to study all of them. Elaine Dear Elaine If you design your pages so that they look OK on MSIE6, then they will work fine for most of your visitors. The FireFox fanatics know that some stuff doesn't work right, but they consider that a fair price to pay for religious fredom and the right to use a non-Microsoft browser. The same goes for Mac users. They know that the Safari browser has a few teeth missing and can't cope with Java as well as other browsers, but that is a battle scar that they learned to live with. As long as you don't use the newest and weirdest gimmicks, all browsers can display your stuff, if it is designed for MSIE6. Have FUN! DearWebby

A bus of politicians is driving by a farm where a man lives alone. The bus driver, caught up in the beautiful scenery, loses control and crashes into the ditch. The man comes out and finding the politicians, buries them. The next day, the police are at the farm questioning the man. "So you buried all the politicians?" asked the police officer. "Were they all dead?" The man answered, "Some said they weren't, but you know how politicians lie."

Deeli's Kudos January 4, 2008 - Moscow - AFP Eleven Russian fishermen, feared dead for three months, were rescued after surviving on rations in an abandoned military base in Russia's Far East. The 11 men were rescued by soldiers after five of them ventured from the base this week on Kamchatka peninsula, 8,000 kilometres east of Moscow, where they had been sheltering since October. The group found shelter at the base after being hit by bad weather during an October fishing trip off Kamchatka in October. They lived for weeks on flour and other food reserves, trapped in the frigid, volcanic area because of adverse weather. Their ordeal is not over, however. The group may face charges for having fished in a military zone were civilians are not allowed. http://ca.news.yahoo.com/s/afp/080104/o ... ng_offbeat

A kind-hearted fellow was walking through Central Park in New York and was astonished to see an old man, fishing rod in hand, fishing over a beautiful bed of lillies. "Tch Tch!" said the passerby to himself. "What a sad sight. That poor old man is fishing over a bed of flowers. I'll see if I can help." So the kind fellow walked up to the old man and asked, "What are you doing, my friend?" "Fishin', sir." "Fishin', eh. Well how would you like to come have a drink with me?" The old man stood up, put his rod away and followed the kind stranger to the corner bar. He ordered a large glass of beer and a fine cigar. His host, the kind fellow, felt good about helping the old man, and he asked, "Tell me, old friend, how many did you catch this morning?" The old fellow took a long drag on the cigar, blew a careful smoke ring and replied, "You are the sixth today, sir!"

Morris was in his usual place in the morning sitting at the table, reading the paper after breakfast. He came across an article about a beautiful actress that was about to marry a football player who was known primarily for his lack of IQ and common knowledge. He turned to his wife Sherry, with a look of question on his face. "I'll never understand why the biggest schmucks get the most attractive wives." His wife replies, "Why thank you, dear!"
