Thanks to Irene for this story: Returning from a trip to visit my grandmother in Canada, I was stopped by a state trooper in New York for exceeding the speed limit. Grateful to have received a warning instead of a ticket, I gave him a small bag of my grandmother's delicious chocolate chip cookies and proceeded on my way. Later, I was stopped by another trooper. "What have I done?" I asked. "Nothing," the trooper said, smiling. "I heard you were passing out great chocolate chip cookies." Thanks to Ginny for this story: My mother-in-law asked me, "If you hate me so much, why is my photograph on the mantle piece?" I told her, "To keep the kids away from the fire."

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Mthandani Nqetho in Durban, South Africa Not a movie stuntman either January 31, 2008 - Durban, South Africa - UPI Police in South Africa said a suspected thief spent hours clinging to a rail after he impaled both his feet on a fence during an attempted getaway. Authorities said Mthandani Nqetho impaled his feet on the fence's steel spikes while fleeing from guards in the city of Durban Friday night and he was not found until churchgoers spotted him the next morning. Nqetho was able to free one of his feet on his own, but the other remained impaled until the following morning, when bystanders phoned rescue services. Captain Greg Bevan said the suspect's wrists were swollen from hanging onto the rail for several hours. Police spokesman Michael Reed said Nqetho has been charged with robbery and is being guarded at the hospital. He said Nqetho will go before a magistrate as soon as he is healthy enough to walk which police estimated at about a week.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Kate Re: Internet TV software Dear Webby, I just found this advert about internet tv and I know that your the most savvy on net fraud that I know so I wanted your opinion. to me it already looks too good to be true.... so... :) Kate Dear Kate There is no way that I can check out all 15,000 different PC-TV programs out there. Most of them cost between $29 and $99, and they all require you to buy RealPlayer. They all got the same free stations. Whenever one adds a new station, the other ones will have it too within a day or so. As a rule of thumb, if they accept PayPal, they are legit. PayPal would axe them instantly if they were not legit. Have FUN! DearWebby

Only in America do we have a general in charge of the post office, and a secretary in charge of defense.

Deeli's Kudos February 26, 2008 - Somerset, UK - Daily Telegraph A mother who fell into a coma after losing her baby son during a difficult labour came back from the brink of death after her husband gave her "a bloody good yelling at". Yvonne Sullivan, 28, lost consciousness suffering from severe blood poisoning moments after being told that baby Clinton had died. Her husband Dominic, 37, kept a round-the-clock vigil at her bedside for two weeks as she lay in intensive care. But when doctors told him they would have to switch off her life support machine, Mr Sullivan took drastic action - by giving his wife a firm telling-off. He held his wife's hand and demanded: "You start fighting. Don't you dare give up on me now. I've had enough, stop mucking around and start breathing. Come back to me." Two hours later she started to breathe steadily again. Within five days, doctors were able to switch off her ventilator, and she regained consciousness to see her husband standing beside her. She even remembers hearing her husband yelling at her as she lay in a coma and says it gave her the strength to pull through. ... oma123.xml

A soldier went up to the Company Cook and said, "If you put a lid on the pan there'll be less dust and dirt in the food". The cook, very annoyed, replied, "You mind your own business. Your duty is to defend the homeland!" "That's right," said the soldier. "But my duty is to defend it, not to eat it...."

Daily tip from Vegetable Oil on Your Snow Shovel Coat your snow shovel with some vegetable oil to keep snow from sticking to it. Use the cheapest cooking oil you have on hand. Make sure you carefully wash off that oil before the dusty season! Unlike dry Moly lube or spray-on Ski wax, cooking oil attracts and binds dust into a rough crust that will make your life miserable next year. Have FUN!

Ending his sermon, a preacher announced that he would preach on Noah and the Ark on the following Sunday, and gave the scriptural reference for the congregation to read ahead of time. A couple of boys noticed something interesting about the placement of the story in the Bible. They slipped into the church and glued two pages of the pulpit Bible together. The next Sunday, the preacher got up to read his text. "Noah took unto himself a wife," he began, "and she was" - he turned the page to continue - "three hundred cubits long, fifty wide and thirty high." He paused, scratched his head, turned the page back, read it silently, and turned the page again. Then he looked up at his congregation and said, "I've been reading this old Bible for near fifty years, but....this seems to require further study."
