An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Burglar fall down-go splat (09-11) 12:29 PDT SAN FRANCISCO -- A car-burglary suspect fell to his death early today after he climbed over a wall on San Francisco's Telegraph Hill while trying to flee from police, apparently unaware that on the other side of the wall was a 200-foot cliff, authorities said. The incident began at 12:30 a.m. when police received reports of a someone breaking into a car on the unit block of Alta Street near Montgomery Street, east of Coit Tower. Plainclothes officers set up surveillance in the area and spotted the man getting out of an Audi, said police spokesman Sgt. Neville Gittens. Police tried to stop him, but he took off running. At one point, he stumbled and a screwdriver fell out of his pocket, police said. The man jumped over a 3-foot wall at the end of Alta Street and plunged the equivalent of 20 stories. He was pronounced dead at the scene, west of Sansome Street.
A young man was delighted to finally be asked home to meet the parents of the young woman he'd been seeing for some time. He was quite nervous about the meeting, though, and by the time he arrived punctually at the doorstep he was in a state of gastric distress. The problem developed into one of acute flatulence, and halfway through the canapes the young man realized he couldn't hold it in one second longer without exploding. A tiny fart escaped. "SPOT!" called out the young woman's mother to the family dog, lying at the young man's feet. Relieved at the dog's having been blamed, the young man let another, slightly larger one go. "Spot!" she called out sharply. "I've got it made," thought the fellow to himself. One more and I'll feel fine. So he let loose a really big one. "Spot!" shrieked the mother. "Get over here before he craps on you!"
A hat was passed around a church congregation to take up an offering for the visiting minister. Presently it was returned to him...embarrassingly empty. Slowly the parson inverted the hat and shook it meaningfully. Then raising his eyes heavenward, he exclaimed, "I thank you, Lord, that I got my hat back from this congregation."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Mark Re: Find owner of a domain Hi Webby Would you know how to find out who owns a domain name? Friend of mine tried to get her name albeit found out it is registered. Doesn't know who actually owns it. Appreciate all the insights you share. Mark Dear Mark The easiest is probably http://dnsstuff.com Or tell me what name she is interested in. I am one of the sharpest consultants in that field, and can probably find a suitable name that is available. The more details about what she plans to do, the closer a match I can find. I can also help her avoid bad names like whorepresents.com that belongs not to whore presents, but to who represents; or expertsexchange.com which has nothing to do with sex change of experts; or therapistfinder.com, apparently not for finding the rapist, but therapists; or speedofart.com, which has not much to do with farts in speedos, and so on. A domain name can make or break a business, and the selection of a domain name should of a domain name should not be taken lightly. Have FUN! DearWebby

My Uncle Joe was arrested for selling home-stilled whiskey. His lawyer put him on the stand and asked the jurors to look carefully at his client. "Now, ladies and gentleman of the jury," concluded the lawyer, "you've looked carefully at the defendant. Can you sit there in the jury and honestly believe that if my client had a quart of whiskey he would sell it?" He was acquitted.
