Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example. --- Mark Twain
A teenager was sitting in church, and when the collection plate was passed around, he quickly pulled a dollar bill from his pocket and dropped it in. Just then, the person behind him tapped him on his shoulder and handed him a $20 bill. The boy smiled, placed the $20 in the plate and passed it on, admiring that the man was being generous. Then the boy felt another tap from behind and heard a whisper: "Son," the man said, "that was your $20 bill that had fallen out of your pocket."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Igor Kenk, 49, of Toronto, Ontario World's most prolific bike thief Canadian police say they have caught the world's most prolific bike thief. Officers recovered 2,865 stolen bicycles from the owner of a Toronto bike shop, reports The Guardian. Igor Kenk, 49, is awaiting trial on 58 charges of theft, attempted theft, possession of stolen goods and possession of burglary tools. He was arrested after Toronto police, noticing that bike theft had spiked sharply in June, planted bicycles on the streets and watched to see who stole them. As plain clothes officers hid in wait, Kenk and another man walked past. Kenk seemed to tell his companion to cut the locks on two bikes, which he did, before the pair attempted to pedal away. When police raided the Bicycle Clinic, the shop was so jam-packed that the fire service had to remove the upper-floor windows and lower the bikes out by rope. Later, 200 more bikes were seized in Kenk's home, along with large quantities of drugs, in a smart neighbourhood in Toronto. Ten landlords around the city also reported that they had rented garages to Kenk, which were chock-full of bikes. Some 15,000 people have visited the police station garage where the vast collection was taken, hoping to pick out their own lost bikes. Toronto police officers said about 500 people had so far been reunited with their bicycles.
A boy was taking care of his baby sister while his parents went to town shopping. He decided to go fishing and he had to take her along. "I'll never do that again!" he told his mother that evening. "I didn't catch a thing!" "Oh, next time I'm sure she'll be quiet and not scare the fish away," his mother said. The boy said, "It wasn't that. She didn't scare the fish. She ate all the bait."
Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprove the child. Smiling sweetly, the Sunday School teacher said, "Johnny, when I was a child, I was told that if I made ugly faces, it would freeze and I would stay like that." Little Johnny looked up into her face and replied, "Well, Ms. Smith, you can't say you weren't warned."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Marcella Re: XP installer Dear Webby, I thought I would eventually get used to Vista, but it is like getting used to driving in first gear only. I don't work under the hood on my car, and I would rather have a real professional work on my computers. You have once mentioned a shop in Texas or thereabouts that professionally upgrades Vista machines to XP. Are they still doing that, or did they run out of XP CDs? If they are still doing it, can you please run their address again? Thanks Marcella Dear Marcella Yes, Jerome is indeed still upgrading computers to XP. I guess his reputation is spreading, because that work is 75% of their work now. To negotiate a price and make shipping arrangements, write to He uses only legitimate XP CDs, not the Chinese and Russian pirated XP clones, and you won't have any problems with the automatic updates.

A client brought a litter of golden retriever puppies to my veterinary clinic for inoculations and worming. As the look-alike pups squirmed over and under one another in their box, I realized it would be difficult to tell the treated ones from the rest. So, I turned on the water faucet, wet my fingers, and moistened each dog's head when I had finished. After the fourth puppy, I noticed my talkative client had grown silent. As I sprinkled the last pup's head, the woman leaned forward and whispered, "I didn't know they had to be baptized, too."
