The kindergarten class had settled down to its coloring books. Willie came up to the teacher's desk and said, "Miss Francis, I ain't go no crayons." "Willie," Miss Francis said, "you mean, "I don't have any crayons.' You don't have any crayons. We don't have any crayons. They don't have any crayons. Do you see what I'm getting at?" "Not really," Willie said, "What happened to all them crayons?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a naked nut in Las Vegas Sent in by Ross Naked man arrested after hijacking Las Vegas bus The Associated Press | Wednesday, Jul 9 2008 7:56 AM Maybe he lost his shirt at a casino. Police in Las Vegas say they arrested a naked man who stole a beer and then hijacked a bus several miles northeast of the Strip. A police spokesman says the man fled from a convenience store when an officer arrived to investigate a report of a shoplifter Tuesday. The man allegedly punched in a back window of a Citizens Area Transit bus, climbed aboard, forced the driver off, drove the bus about 200 yards and then jumped off the moving vehicle. A police officer climbed aboard the bus and stopped the vehicle. Police say the man was arrested on felony charges and given clothes and a mental evaluation.
A butcher just out of trade school in Canada applies for and gets a job, skinning and cutting up the kills of local hunters. The first job he gets is to cut up a moose to put in the freezer. He finally gets the moose cut up and is putting it into bags and marking them with the contents: chops, rump steak, ribs, sirloin, etc, etc. When he finishes with the stuff he knows, he is still left with a pile of unidentifiable parts. At a loss as to what to do with them, he finally puts them all into one bag and labels them..........Moosellaneous.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Cheryl Re: gui.exe Dear Webby: I have windows XP Home operating system and lately , whenever I start up the computer I get a little window that says "Application Error - GUI.exe The application failed to initialise properly (0x0000022) Click OK to terminate the application." Don't know what it is on about and when I click OK all continues as it should. Do you know if I can delete this program or is it integral to the operating system? Thanks for your help once again!! Cheryl Dear Cheryl That is just spyware reporting what size bra you order and what you do at the bank. And it opens a back door for other people to enter your computer and use it for spamming. gui.exe is a process belonging to an advertising program by This process monitors your browsing habits and distributes the data back to the author's servers for analysis. This also prompts advertising popups. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. Somebody apparently agreed to carrying it on the computer as a small print condition for getting some "free" stuff. Because of that agreement, makers of programs, that remove it automatically, can be sued. Big companies like McAfee, that have big herds of staff lawyers, kill it anyway. You can also try Spybot-Search&Destroy. It is free. If that doesn't do it, use McAfee. Have FUN! Dear Webby
