Thanks to Dave for this story: My mother has a "lead foot," so I was not surprised when a state trooper pulled us over as we were speeding through Georgia. Hoping to get off with a warning, Mom tried to appear shocked when the trooper walked up to the car. "I have never been stopped like this before," she said to the officer. "What do they usually do, ma'am," he asked, "shoot the tires ! out?"
Thanks to my dad for this picture: This one bloomed today, second time this year. Philocactus

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a Sandra Meiser, 26, in Norf, Germany Bum Rap A bank robber was caught as she tried to raid the same branch twice - when a witness identified her by her big bum. Police say Sandra Meiser, 26, got away with a $22,000 robbery in Norf, western Germany, after threatening bank staff with a gun. Witnesses told officers that the raider was a woman with a "very large" backside and "powerful thighs". Then weeks later one witness found himself behind what he believes to be the same bottom as they stood in a queue at the same branch. "He called the police and they arrested her and found her ski mask and hand gun in her jacket. He said he recognised her bottom straight away - he'd never forget something that big," said one bank worker. Now Meiser is facing up to 10 years in jail on robbery and firearms charges while the 61-year-old witness has landed a $7,400 reward. http://www.ananova.com/news/story/sm_3018786.html
St. Peter was at the pearly gates, making his usual list of names of people waiting to get into heaven. The first man walked up and Peter asked, "Who are you?" "It's me, Albert Jones," the voice replied. St. Peter took his name and let him in. St. Peter asked the second one the second same question, "And who are you?" "It's me, Charlie Anderson." St. Peter took his name and let him in. Finally he turns to the third, asking the same question, "Who are you?" "It is I, Vera Chapman," answered the third. "Oh, great," muttered St. Peter. "Another English teacher."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Hubcap Re: XP computers Good Morning, Dear Webby I have been with sbcglobal since 2004 and haven't missed a Humor Letter yet....guess I have been one of the LUCKY ONE'S Another question...I am wanting to update to a newer system, but am a bit confused as to which Vista to get. I know they are all pretty bad, but probably better than my old Windows'. I have seen the Vista Home version, or something like that at most computer places I have been, but would rather find one with XP on it. Most places don't even talk about it any more, and is difficult to find with out paying an arm and a leg to get it installed. Any reasonable info, please. Hubcap Dear Hubcap SBCGLOBAL doesn't block the Humor Letter. The new Yahoo email clashes with Internet Explorer. As long as you can avoid updating the Yahoo email program, you'll be fine. Or if you use any browser other than IE. You will of course also be fine if you use a respectable POP email program. Re new computer, try Tiger Direct Business Entrance Lots of XP computers there. You just have to use the business entrance. The same with Dell. If you act like a gullible grannie, then all they show you is Vista. But go in the business door, and it's totally different. Businesses buy XP, Linux, ---- or the Vista Business that comes with XP installed and Vista on a shrink-wrapped CD, suitable to replace all those old mail-out AOL CD style beer coasters. Just in time too! Ours were getting rather scratched and shabby looking. Have FUN! DearWebby
