Sorry about the problems getting to the sites or seeing pictures
yesterday morning. We were under attack and it took until noon
to fight it off.

Thanks to Dave for bringing back this delightful classic: A preacher, who shall we say was "humor impaired," attended a conference to help encourage and better equip pastors for their ministry. Among the presenters were many well-known and dynamic speakers. One such boldly approached the pulpit and, gathering the entire crowd's attention, said, "The best years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman who was another man's wife!" The crowd was shocked! He followed up by saying, "And that woman was my mother!" The crowd burst into laughter and he delivered the rest of his talk, which went over quite well. The next week, the pastor decided he'd give this humor thing a try and use that joke in his sermon. As he approached the pulpit that sunny Sunday, he tried to rehearse the joke in his head. It suddenly seemed a bit foggy to him. Getting to the microphone, he said loudly, "The greatest years of my life were spent in the arms of a woman that was another man's wife!" The congregation inhaled half the air in the room. After standing there for almost 10 seconds in the stunned silence, trying to recall the second half of the joke, the pastor finally blurted out, "...and I can't remember who she was!"

Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a teenager in Westchester County, New York Painfull Lesson May 6, 2008 - Westchester County, New York - AP Thanks to Ross for this submission. A Westchester County teenager is facing a long list of charges after allegedly trying to rob two men and finding out they were undercover police officers. Yonkers police said the officers were in their unmarked car, doing overnight surveillance work, when Michael Garcia, 19, reached into the driver-side window, grabbed an officer and demanded money. Police said the two officers got out of the car. They say the unarmed suspect punched and kicked them while trying to avoid arrest. After the fight, all three men were treated at hospitals. Garcia is charged with attempted robbery, assault and resisting arrest.

Thanks to kati for this story: Six retired Floridians were playing poker in the condo clubhouse when Meyerwitz loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five continue playing standing up. Finkelstein looks around and asks, "So, who's gonna' tell his wife?" They draw straws. Goldberg picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse. "Discreet? I'm the most discreet person you'll ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Leave it to me." Goldberg goes over to the Meyerwitz apartment and knocks on the door. The wife answers and asks what he wants. Goldberg declares: "Your husband just lost $500 and is afraid to come home." "Tell him to drop dead!" says the wife. "I'll go tell him." says Goldberg.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Many Re: Bad Deals at Best Buy Dear Webby, It's a shame when there is a big name Company and we put our trust in them only to learn another lesson. A friend of mine had a similar situation with Best Buy. They must send the Best Buy Geeks on the road and leave inexpercienced and salespersons to attend to Computer problems. They told my friend that he had a memory problem and he was better off buying a new Computer. He bought a new Computer. He finally called me because his old Computer wouldn't boot. When I opended his Computer they put the Master drive in line with the CD and the slave as the Master without changing the jumpers. I'm glad that Mare wrote you with his problem with Best Buy and that you took the time too respond. I'am also 65 yrs and we never stop learning. Take Care Robert Robert's letter was only one of many. There was not one single letter in defense of BestBuy. Overall, it seems that Best Buy is best avoided, when it comes to anything more technical than an extension cord. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Martin for this story: An overweight man was waiting in line at a bank. There were two teenage boys in line behind him. They were giggling and making fun of how fat the man was. After five minutes of this the man turned to the boys and asked them politely to stop, as he couldn't help his weight problem. With this the boys asked, "Oh, and why are you so fat Mister?" The Man turned around and replied: "Well, every time I messed with your mother, she gave me a cookie."

Deeli's Kudos I'd like to call this one a Kudo to the courts !!! Deeli May 6, 2008 - Fort Worth, Texas - AP Thanks to Ross for this submission. A Texas woman who caused her lover's shooting death by falsely crying rape was convicted Friday of involuntary manslaughter. Tracy Denise Roberson, 37, cried a bit when the verdict was announced. The punishment phase was set for Monday, and she faces two to 20 years in prison. In late 2006, Darrell Roberson came home from a late-night card game to find his scantily clad wife with another man in a pickup truck in the driveway. Tracy Roberson was with her lover but cried rape, and her husband fired four shots into the truck as Devin LaSalle drove off, killing him. Darrell Roberson initially was arrested, but a murder charge was later dropped and a grand jury indicted Tracy Roberson instead. During her three-day trial, defense attorneys called no witnesses but blamed LaSalle's death on Darrell Roberson's jealousy and rage. But prosecutors placed all the blame on Tracy Roberson, showing evidence of the affair with LaSalle, 32, and a text message in which she invited him to her house that evening. ... lHQl1H2ocA

Thanks to Sandie for this story: Panicking when her toddler swallowed a tiny magnet, my sister, Betty, rushed him to the emergency room. "He'll be fine," the doctor promised her. "The magnet should pass through his system in a day or two." "How will I be sure?" she pressed. "Well," the doctor suggested, "you could stick him on the refrigerator. When he falls off, you'll know."

Thanks to Sandie for this story: "That was nice of you to set up a blind date for your ex-boyfriend." "I know, but I don't hold any grudges." "I'm surprised he trusted you enough to agree to go out with her." "Well, I had to swear to him she's Jennifer Lopez's double." "Wow! Is that true?" "I wouldn't lie. She's twice her weight and twice her age!"
