Thanks to Sandie for this story: A fisherman is returning home with several large fish in his creel. A guy comes along and asks, "You been fishing?" "Uh, yeah." "What bait you using?" "Chewin' tobacco." "How'd you use chewin' tobacco as bait?" "I put the tobacco on the hook and drop the hook in the water. The fish nibble on the bait and when they come up to spit, I hit 'em on the head with my rod."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Carmelo Balzari, 33, in Milan, Italy 'Gentleman Robber'' suspect arrested MILAN, Italy (UPI) -- Police in Milan, Italy, said they have arrested a suspected "gentleman robber" who took care not to frighten bank staff or children during his alleged heists. Investigators said Carmelo Balzari, 33, was arrested at a Milan hotel during the weekend after he allegedly robbed 10 banks in two months, ANSA reported. Officers said the "gentleman robber" would wait until all children had exited the bank before executing his robberies and took care not to upset clerks. Police said the "sharply dressed and softly spoken" alleged robber once gave up on a robbery after a bank manager reacted "too sharply." "He was a real gentleman, a kind you don't often see anymore," a police officer said of the suspect.
The new bride had spent two hours preparing her first breakfast. She sat down at the table, eagerly watching as her husband slowly savored each forkful. "How was it, honey?" she asked when he'd finished. "Well," he began thoughtfully, wiping his lips, "you probably could have beaten the eggshells a little longer, but on the whole, it was a good start!"
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Adrian Re: Is Mac easier than Windows? Dear Webby, Is Mac easier than Windows? Some friends tell me that they don't have the problems on their Mac that everybody seems to have on Windows. What's the real scoop? Adrian Dear Adrian Mac is a cult, not just a machine, just like Harley Davidson. If they look at it realistically, nobody would buy a Harley because of reliability, performance or ease of use. They buy it because their buddies have one, or because they want to become buddies with Harley owners. The same goes for Mac. Their system is trying to be bimbo-proof and cutesy, like Vista is trying to be. That of course comes with a performance and reliability penalty. It all depends on what you want to do with the computer. For top performance and reliability, use Linux or UNIX. For good performance and reliability, use XP For cute and pretty interfaces use Mac or Vista. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man goes to see the doctor because he has a sore throat. The nurse tells him to take all his clothes off and sit on the bench in the hall. The man tries to protest, but the nurse doesn't listen and just repeats the same orders then leaves the area. The man complies with her orders and joins another naked man sitting on the bench. The man starts complaining to the man already sitting there, that he only has a sore throat and doesn't understand why he has to take all his clothes off. The man who was already sitting on the bench nude, looks at the other man and says "You think that's bad, I'm just here to pay my bill."

Daily tip from Quick and Easy Tree Ornament A quick and easy Christmas tree ornament can be made by using clear glass ornament balls. Drop paint in through the hole and then turn it upside down and let sit overnight. The paint will spread out and coat the inside of the ball. Swirls of red and white or green and white make really pretty ornaments. Visit ThriftyFun for more Christmas Ornament Tips ... 5_259.html If you don't have any clear glass ornament balls, you can wad up aluminum foil or wrap it around a ball made with scrap paper. Then lightly spray it with candy-apple red or gold spray paint. "Candy-Apple" paints are translucent, basically just a varnish with some pigment in it. If you don't like using spray cans, you can use a tooth brush. Dip it into the paint, then push it forward over a popsicle stick or edge of a ruler. It will nicely splatter the balls and look even better than spraying them. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog at also has a newsletter.

"Skipper," the sailor said to his captain as he saluted, "A special message just came in for you from the admiral. I have it right here." "Read it to me," the captain ordered. The sailor read, "You are without a doubt the most idiotic, lame-brained officer ever to command a ship in the United States Navy." The skipper responded, "Have that communication decoded at once!"
