Thanks to Dave for this story: The Ferrari F1 Racing Team recently fired the whole pit crew to employ some young unemployed youths from Liverpool. The decision to hire them was brought on by a documentary on how unemployed youths in the Liverpool area can remove a set of car wheels in less than 4 seconds without proper equipment. This was thought to be a good move as most races are won and lost in the pits these days, and Ferrari would thus have an advantage. However, Ferrari soon encountered a major problem: Not only were the lads changing the tires in under 4 seconds but within another 10 seconds had repainted, renumbered and sold the vehicle to the McLaren team.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Laura-Leah Shaw of Ontario Woman pays $1,000 to rescue lobster SHEDIAC, New Brunswick (UPI) -- A Canadian woman says she plans to release a giant lobster after she paid $1,000 to rescue the crustacean from a fish market. Laura-Leah Shaw purchased the 22-pound lobster, named Big Dee-Dee, from the Big Fish seafood market in Shediac, New Brunswick, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported. The report said two unnamed Ontario groups contributed $1,000 each to rescue the animal, which is thought to be 100 years old. Big Fish was auctioning Big Dee Dee for an opening price of $1,000, the report said. Denis Breau, owner of the fish market, said at least 1,000 people visited Big Fish to catch a glimpse of Big Dee Dee, who was caught in the beginning of July. Shaw said she would travel to the Maritimes region of eastern Canada Monday to let Big Dee Dee go into the wild, but officials said the lobster would need to undergo a health inspection before it is released, to check for diseases.

The Sunday School teacher was teaching a lesson on creation to a class of children. "All right, children," she said, "who can tell us what makes the flower spring from the seed?" One little girl answered, "The rain does it, but fertilizer helps."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Chris Re: Restore desktop Dear Webby Is there a better way to save and restore the Windows desktop than SMD? SMD has worked fine for many years, but after recent Windows bugfixes and updates, it seems to have lost it's magic. I have a lot of icons on my desktop, and get extremely annoyed when a tool is not where I had put it. Thanks Chris Dear Chris Try Restore Desktop from MidiOx. It's in my toolbox. After installing it, right-click on the desktop and you will see the options to save and to restore the desktop added to the right-click menu. Have FUN! DearWebby

My friend's daughter was taking her son, Donny, to preschool along her usual route. She had always been aware of the speed trap on the hill but this day, she was unusually hurried and forgot. Sure enough, the police pulled her over. Denise was asked for her license and registration. She started to giggle. The officer asked her if she thought this was funny. She said, "No," and that it was her 3 year old in the back seat. The officer put his head down to the window and heard this tiny voice singing, "What you gonna do when they come for you . . . what you gonna do . . . bad boy, bad boy . . . what you gonna do?" The officer couldn't stop laughing and let her go with a warning.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Regional Bargains When traveling or even commuting, be mindful of regional bargains. For example, when we drive to Eastern Washington (from Western Washington), we visit some fruit stands to take advantage of bargains on apples and cherries. The fruit is grown there so the fruit is extremely fresh and inexpensive if you buy it in season.

My nephew, who has just started the first grade, was asked to memorize the Ten Commandments. Upon reciting the commandment, "Thou shalt not commit adultery," he was asked what this commandment meant. With absolute seriousness he replied, "That means that you shouldn't do what the adults do."
