Nothing is an obstacle unless you say it is. --- Wally Amos
A high school teacher arrived late for class to find a most uncomplimentary drawing of himself on the blackboard. Fuming, he asked the class, "Who is responsible for this atrocity?!" The class clown won tremendous prestige among his peers by answering, "I really don't know, but I strongly suspect his parents." "Keli is a liar and a cheat ," said Greg to Paul seated next to him in the bar. "How do you know?" Paul asked. "Keli didn't come home last night and when I asked her where she'd been, she said she had spent the night with her sister, Di Ann." Greg replied. "So?" Paul queried "So she's a liar and a cheat. I spent the night with her sister."

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Orlando Utilities Commission Too incompetent to be honest? February 25, 2008 - Orlando, Florida - UPI A Florida man said getting his money back proved difficult after he accidentally paid the Orlando Utilities Commission $11,384 instead of the $113.84 he owed. Larry VanFleet said a misplaced decimal point on the check he sent to the commission resulted in his bank account being cleared out. VanFleet said he spent two weeks trying to get his money back from the company, but all he was offered was an $11,000 account "credit". "I don't want an $11,000 credit to pay my bill for seven years," VanFleet said. "I mean, come on." He said his complaints went unaddressed until he contacted the WKMG-TV Problem Solvers, who in turn put in a call to OUC. VanFleet credited the Problem Solvers with convincing the company to return his money.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: William Re: Page Hijacker Dear Webby, I have problem with an exe file. When I attempt to go to a website off of Google , it directs me to a porn site. How do I rid myself of this executable? I've tried to remove it but it says that it is in use. Thanks William Dear William Your machine is infected with malware, a hijacker. Possibly you agreed to it in the small print of something you installed. Once you have agreed to it, as a form of payment for something you received. Spybot is not legally allowed to remove it. The courts consider it a negotiated and agreed form of payment, owed to the company from whom you got something or other. There are probably some guerilla methods for getting rid of that page hijacker, but without knowing the name of it, it is impossible to guess which one you sold out to. There are way too many page hijackers floating around. The most respected help is at the HijackThis! forums. Lurk at that forum and observe their customs and manners. Search for previous instances of help for your particular hijacker. You may find the answer there. If not, lurk until you feel like an insider, and then ask for help. The people there are very friendly and helpful, as long as you don't ask about a problem that they just solved and discussed last week. In the meantime, use the Chinese Maxthon browser. It resists a lot of the hijackers. You can also try FireFox and Opera. Have FUN! DearWebby

It was nearly 7 o'clock when an employee walked into a restaurant after working overtime for a demanding and demeaning supervisor. As he was being led to his table, he noticed his supervisor at another table arguing with the waiter about his order. Finally, the waiter turned and headed toward the bar. As he was returning to the supervisor's table with a drink, the employee stopped him saying, "Here's $20.00 in it if you will spit in that drink." With a somewhat puzzled look, the waiter replied, "Again?"

Deeli's Kudos Kudo to snow mobile owner turned detective February 24, 2008 - Bangor Township, Michigan - AP Michigan police say they found what appears to be a "chop shop" for stolen snowmobiles, thanks to the determination of an angry snowmobile owner, and some telltale tracks in the snow. Police say the man discovered Saturday that his snowmobile was missing from his home in southwest Michigan. The man, whose name is not being released, called police and set out on a borrowed snowmobile following tracks in the snow. They say he followed them for about 16 kilometres, through fields and along roads. Relatives and friends followed by car as he trailed the tracks to a home in Bangor Township. "The tracks that they had followed led right up to a garage door," Michigan State Police said in a news release. Inside the garage, police found the man's snowmobile, already disassembled, plus three others and many snowmobile parts. Police say they have numerous suspects and expect to file charges. ... 12-ap.html

Against his better judgment, the big game hunter is talked into taking both his wife AND her mother along on one of his expeditions. It does not go well. The mother-in-law is, if anything, harder to get along with in the wilds than she was in the city. And to make matters worse, she won't even abide by the simple camp rules designed to keep the safari safe. One night after dinner, the hunter's wife realizes her mother is missing. Panicked, she rushes to her husband and begs him to institute a search. He sighs, and together they set out. But before they've gone far, they hear throaty growling. Soon they come upon a small clearing in which the mother-in-law stands, backed up against thick, seemingly impenetrable jungle brush, and facing a huge male lion. The wife whispers urgently, "What are we going to do?" "Nothing whatever," responds her husband. "The lion got himself into this mess, now let him get himself out of it."

For months he had been her devoted admirer. Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions: "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being -- a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute own; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and sorrows." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement. Finally, she responded, "I think its a great idea! Can I help you choose which puppy to buy?"

Thanks to Stepahnie for today's Bonus Link: Reunion with lion BabelFish translation of the text: The woman in the video found to this wounded lion and on the verge of dying in the forest. Took it to its house and took care of of him until it improved. When the lion recovered, it called to a zoological one and it made some adjustments so that they took it and they offered a new home him, where could continue taking care of of him. This video was filmed when the woman went to visit the lion in the zoological time despues. The reaction of the lion when it sees it is INCREDIBLE!
