Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so." --- Douglas Adams If you want to cut down on the number of relatives who are hanging around, borrow money from the rich ones and lend money to the ones who are poor. You will never see any of them again. --- Socratex
A middle aged man wasn't feeling well, so he went to the doctor for a check up. After a thorough examination, the doctor said, "Well, based on my examination, the best thing for you is to cut out all sweets and fatty foods, give up sex and alcohol, and stop smoking." The man said, "Well, to be honest with you Doc, I don't deserve the best. What's the second best?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tom Biscardi, bigfoot "expert" Sent in by Ross Searching for Bigfoot group to sue Georgia hoaxers By CHRISTIAN BOONE, KATHY JEFCOATS, etc. Wednesday, August 20, 2008 They claim their hoax was not for profit, but Atlanta residents Matthew Whitton and Rick Dyer received $50,000 from a California Bigfoot tracker who now plans to sue to get the money back. The two Georgia men’s tale of having found a Bigfoot carcass in the North Georgia woods really started to stink when California Bigfoot enthusiasts finally examined the body and found it was just a costume. “There will be legal action” said Catherine Ortez, who works for Searching for Bigfoot, Inc. in in Menlo Park, Calif. The organization paid for rights to the men’s story and their find. “If this was a joke, it was very methodical and thought-out,” she said. The Searching for Bigfoot, Inc site was founded by Tom Biscardi, who authenticated and promoted the alleged Georgia Sasquatch. Biscardi, who did not return calls requesting comment, has his own credibility issues, according to a police officer in a nearby jurisdiction. “He was involved in a similar hoax a few years back,” said Agent Dan Ryan with the Palo Alto (Calif.) Police Department. In an interview with WSB-TV Wednesday night, Whitton and Dyer’s attorney, Steve Lister, blamed Biscardi for blowing his clients’ joke out of proportion. “It started off as some YouTube videos and a Web site,” said Whitton, “We’re all about having fun.” Whitton, 28, a Clayton County police officer for six years and on medical leave since he was shot in the wrist by a robbery suspect this spring, was fired by a hysterically irate Police Chief Jeffrey Turner Tuesday after news of the hoax spread. Dyer, 31, is a former Clayton County corrections officer. Though, according to their site, the pair are not averse to making money off their amusement. For $500, you can join them for a Bigfoot expedition. They also sell Sasquatch-related T-shirts and caps. The answering machine on a “tip line” connected to the pair’s Web site, which still advertises $499 Bigfoot “expeditions,” says they’re still out searching for Sasquatch — as well as leprechauns, dinosaurs, unicorns, Jimmy Hoffa and Elvis. http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/metro/ ... wsuit.html
After the birth of their child, an Episcopal priest, wearing his clerical collar, visited his wife in the hospital. He greeted her with a hug and a kiss, and gave her another hug and kiss when he left. Later, the wife's roommate commented: "Your pastor is sure friendlier than mine."
Three preachers sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. One preacher claimed, "Kneeling is definitely best." "No," another contended. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the third insisted. "The most effective prayer position is lying prostrate, face down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted, "the best prayin' I ever did was hangin' upside down from a telephone pole in a thunderstorm."
Still available! Step By Step PC Tune-Up From the Tech Support Pits: From: Jim Re: myMemorizer Hi Webby I enjoy starting every day with your email and thank Martin for recommending it. Check out mymemorizer.com and consider recommending it. Like so many people, I was forgetting appointments etc and putting them on the computer didn't help as I'd forget to look daily. Mymemorizer is like gmail - server based, and it's neatest feature is that it will send you up to 4 emails reminding you of appointments, birthdays, anniversaries etc. The emails can be sent on the day of the event, one day before, two days before, one week before or whatever you select AND, the event can repeat annually so you can put in birthdays and anniversaries once and forget them. Since it is server based, you also can access it from any computer with internet access using your id and pw. And, since we all open our mail the first thing every morning to look for our webby.com humor letter, we will NEVER forget another appointment. Jim Dear Jim I had a look at it, and was quite impressed. http://www.mymemorizer.com/ Unlike Rainlendar, which I have previously recommended, myMemorizer is not on your computer, but on a server. If something happens to your computer or you lose your data, your spouse's birthday and all other imprtant dates are still safely on-line in your myMemorizer. Don't look for longwinded instructions or help files. It is surprisingly easy to use. Just play with it. Thanks to Jim for this tip! I also put it into my toolbox at http://webby.com/tools Have FUN!

The man passed out in a dead faint as he came out of his front door onto the porch. Someone called 911. When the paramedics arrived, they helped him regain consciousness and asked if he knew what caused him to faint. "It was enough to make anybody faint," he said. "My son asked me for the keys to the garage, and instead of driving the car out, he came out with the lawn mower."
