Correction re World Record Wheat Harvest. Thanks to Kathie in Montana, the wanna-be's in Kansas are just hoaxers. That record harvest was in Winkler, Manitoba The event, in August 2006, attracted 105 combines to harvest 162 acres of wheat and yield was 65 bushels per acre. By comparison, in 2006, Norton County, Kansas, averaged 27 bushels to the acre, and there has never been a 100 combine harvest in or near Norton, Kansas. Sorry about the initially wrong information!
A drunk at the DNC in Denver walks into a bar full of customers and slurs to the bartender, "Bartender, buy everyone in the house a drink, pour yourself one, and give me the bill." So, the bartender does just that and hands the man a bill for 76.00. The drunk says, "I haven't got it." The bartender can't believe it. He picks the guy up, beats the living daylights out of him, then throws him out into the street. The next day the same drunk walks back into the same bar and, slurring as always, says, "Bartender, buy every one in the house a drink and give me the bill." In disgust, the bartender says, "What, no drink for me this time?" The drunk replies, "You? No way! You get too violent when you drink."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Heidi Dalibor, 20, of Grafton, Wisconsin Failing to appear in court to answer regarding her refusal to pay library fines for two overdue library books. A US woman has been arrested and handcuffed for failing to appear in court to answer regarding her refusal to pay library fines for two overdue library books. Heidi Dalibor, of Grafton, Wisconsin, is the first to admit that she ignored calls and letters from her local library. She also admits that she ignored a notice to appear in municipal court or pay the fine, reports the News Graphic. But the last thing she expected was a knock on her door by Grafton police. "They showed me a warrant they had for my arrest," said Miss Dalibor, 20. "They said they had to cuff me and I said, 'Are you serious?'" She said all she could think about was that her neighbours would not know why she was being led away from her home in handcuffs. Once at the police station, she was fingerprinted and photographed, and the marks and scars on her body recorded. Police Captain Joe Gabrish says officers follow the same procedure with every warrant. Library director John Hanson says a couple of dozen people are cited each year for failure to return materials or pay fines. The incident cost Dalibor about $27 for the two overdue paperbacks - and it cost her mother $150 bail money to free her. -------------- Plus a criminal record for failing to appear in court when ordered.
The teacher wrote "Like I ain't had no fun in months" on the board and then she said, "David , how should I correct that?" David replied, "Maybe get a better boyfriend?"
All he asked for was a little goodnight kiss, but she rebuffed him with, "I don't do that sort of thing on my first date!" .... "Well," he replied with sarcasm, "how about on your last date?"
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Hermon Re: Acer with Vista Dear Webby, I read the letter and vote daily and send some parts around the world. thanks for making my day with a great letter. If you had an Acer Aspire 5610Z with Vista pre installed, what would you do to uninstall it and install XP Pro??? Of course we all know you would never have bought the Vista machine , and you tried warning everyone, but some of us Appalachian Americans (better known as Hillbillys) can't walk and chew gum at the same time. Thanks for all the help in the past . Hermon in Kentucky Dear Hermon I would do exactly the same as I did with the computer I bought in the desert, so that I could continue writing and sending out the Humor Letter. All I could get in that desert village was a Vista machine. As soon as I got back to civilization, I stuck an XP set-up-CD into it and installed XP. Nothing to it. I am a hillbilly, not a silly-billy. It may be difficult now to find XP set-up CDs unless you hit the garage sale and look for old klunkers that come with the CD. An alternative is to upgrade your Vista to Vista Ultimate, even though that machine won't be able to run it. If you get a Vista Ultimate license, Microsoft will chalk it up as another Vista sale, and in exchange let you have rights to an XP CD. Microsoft is spending 300 Million dollars to try and make you believe that Vista is not as bad as DOS4, and that any horse can eventually get used to being hobbled. Because of that, most people who stocked up on XP CDs are hanging on to them, but there are a few listed at eBay. However, your best bet is to get the Vista Ultimate + XP from Acer. It will have the drivers that you need. Have FUN! DearWebby

Two Irishmen were sitting in a pub having beer and watching the brothel across the street. They saw a Baptist minister walk into theĀ brothel, and one of them said, "Aye, 'tis a shame to see a man of the cloth goin' bad." Then they saw a rabbi enter the brothel, and the other Irishman said, "Aye, 'tis a shame to see that the Jews are fallin' victim to temptation." Then they saw a catholic priest enter the brothel, and one of the Irishmen said, "What a terrible pity... one of the girls must be quite ill."

Daily tip from Borax and Cornmeal for Drying Flowers You can dry flowers using 2 parts borax to 1 part white cornmeal. Add a thin layer of the mixture, then place flowers on top. Slowly add more of the powder until the flowers are covered, pouring on the side rather than right on top, to avoid crushing. Let them sit for 10 days.

A tiny but dignified old lady was among a group looking at an art exhibition in a newly opened gallery. Suddenly one contemporary painting caught her eye. "What on earth," she inquired of the artist standing nearby, "is that supposed to be?" He smiled condescendingly. "That, my dear lady, is supposed to be a mother and her child." "Well, then," snapped the little old lady, "why isn't it...?"
