Thanks to the Vickster for sending this story: The first time I heard this story was when I was a fishing guide on a wilderness lake in the Yukon in 1971. I laughed so hard I scared the fish! This old fisherman would go out in his boat every morning and come back about an hour later with a cooler filled with fish. The game warden got suspicious as to how the old guy always caught so many fish in such a short time. So he invited himself fishing with the old guy. They went to the middle of the lake, the old guy pulls out a stick of dynamite and throws it overboard. Boom! Fish start floating to the surface and the old guy starts scooping them up in his net. The game warden says, "You can't do that. That's illegal." The old guy quietly lights another stick of dynamite, tosses it to the game warden and says, "Your turn!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the city of East St Louis, Illinois Scraping the bottom of the barrel EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (UPI) -- Some of the newest police officers in East St. Louis, Ill., have criminal records, and one of them took his oath while having an outstanding warrant, officials said. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Sunday that one of the new recruits -- the son of Police Chief Michael Baxton -- had been released from the U.S. Army for misconduct. Others have misdemeanor arrests, extensive traffic citations and multiple bankruptcies on their records. City officials admit they rushed the screening process to try to get as many officers into the police academy as possible by July 1. The city says it relied on its own investigations instead of waiting for Illinois State Police background checks, which the city received last week. City Manager Robert Betts said one of the new hires has already been dismissed, and the city will get rid of any other officers during the one-year probation period if troubling information surfaces.

An exhausted hunter out in the wilds stumbled into a camp. "Am I glad to see you," he said, "I've been lost for three days!" "Don't get too excited, friend," the other hunter replied. "I've been lost for three weeks."

Thanks to Jai for this story: Sister Mary Ann, who worked for a home health agency, was out making her rounds visiting homebound patients when she ran out of gas. As luck would have it, an Exxon Gasoline station was just a block away. She walked to the station to borrow a gas can and buy some gas. The attendant told her that the only gas can he owned had been loaned out, but she could wait until it was returned. Since Sister Mary Ann was on the way to see a patient, she decided not to wait and walked back to her car. She looked for something in her car that she could fill with gas and spotted the bedpan she was taking to the patient.. Always resourceful, Sister Mary Ann carried the bedpan to the station, filled it with gasoline, and carried the full bedpan back to her car. As she was pouring the gas into her tank, two Baptists watched from across the street. One of them turned to the other and said, 'If it starts, I'm turning Catholic.'

Daily tip from Opening Clams Use a flat knife made for opening clams. Use a thick towel, glove or pot holder to protect the hand that is holding the clam. Hold the flat knife in your other hand, pull the shell opening towards knife until it penetrates between the shells, then stop. Simply rotate the knife to pry open the shell. Fresh clams open easier when they are cold. Visit ThriftyFun For More Seafood Tips By Clicking Here ... _3712.html Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

At the pre-birth class for couples who'd already had at least one child the instructor raised the question of how to break the news to an older child. "Some parents tell the older child, 'We love you so much that we decided to bring another child into our family.' "But think about that for a second. Ladies, what if your husband came home one day and said, 'Honey, I love you so much I decided to bring home another wife.'?" One of the women spoke up right away, "Does she cook and iron?"
