I think on-stage nudity is disgusting, shameful and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body, it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive religious experience. --- Shelley Winters All charming people have something to conceal, usually their total dependence on the appreciation of others. --- Cyril Connolly,
Two Rabbis and a priest go fishing. When the three are out on the water, one Rabbi says, "Oops, I left the cooler in the trunk, I'd better go get it or we won't be able to eat or drink." The rabbi proceeds to jump out of the boat and hop across the water. A few minutes later, he comes hopping back across the lake with the cooler. The priest sees this and shakes his head in disbelief. He thinks to himself "Theres only one person I know who can do that and I doubt he's a Rabbi." A couple of minutes later, the other Rabbi says, "Oh no, I left my lucky fishing hat in the car. Nobody ever catches a fish unless I have that hat on." He then proceeds to get out of the boat and hop across the water to the shore. A minute later he comes hopping across the lake back into the boat. Now the priest is in absolute disbelief. He thinks, "Hmm, there must be something in the water. I'm going to try this." The priest says, "Uh-oh, I left my keys in the car. Wouldn't want to lose those." He then steps out of the boat and falls in the water. He gets out again and once again goes *splash*. The two rabbis look at each other and one of them says, "Do you think we should tell him where the stepping stones are?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Lorraine Henderson, 50, of Boston, MA Border official charged with harboring illegal immigrant updated 6:02 p.m. EST, Fri December 5, 2008 As the Boston area port director, Henderson was in charge of the inspection and admission of foreign nationals entering at international airports and ports in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island, including Logan International Airport and the Black Falcon cruise terminal. She was in charge of 220 people. The officer later hired the same Brazilian worker but then terminated her in December 2005 after grilling her about her residency and learning that she paid a “coyote” thousands of dollars to smuggle her from Mexico. The officer twice discussed the worker’s illegal status with Henderson, and when Henderson didn’t fire the housekeeper, reported her to Customs officials. Federal agents launched a probe in March and later learned that Henderson paid two other illegals to clean her home while her longtime worker had her anchor baby in 2007. She was forced to surrender her gun, badge and passport and is due back in court Dec. 22. Henderson was placed on PAID administrative leave from her $132,446-a-year job.
Irish police are being handicapped in a search for a stolen van, because they cannot issue a description. It's a Special Branch vehicle and they don't want the public to know what it looks like. (The Guardian)
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Bev Re: Need a camera recommendation Dear Webby, Can you reccommend a Canon camera for around $200.00 that has a rechargable battery. I don't take alot of pictures, but would like one that is reliable. There are so many models that I'm at a lost. Thank you, Bev Dear Bev You might not have to go that high in price. Check these in PriceGrabber for stores in your area. Canon PowerShot A590 IS Black Canon Powershot SD880 IS Canon PowerShot SD880 IS ELPH Silver Sure, they are not quite as good as a $5000 Canon Digital Rebel, but 5 years ago professionals would have killed for any of those three cameras, especially the Elph. It has an awesome wide angle, much wider than most professional grade cameras. What that means is that you can take a wider short range indoor shot than Ms Snooty can with her $5000 camera. She gets just the Christmas tree, you get the people around it too, AND the dog. If you shoot mostly indoors or group pictures where you can't back up very far, get the SD880 IS ELPH. The newer SD1000 an SD1100 don't have the wide angle. Go for the older and cheaper model! Check for a store in your area, so that you don't waste too much time and money in shipping Have FUN!

In a small town, a man just opened a small store selling trumpets and guns. One day his neighbor pays him a visit and says: "So how is your strange business going?" "What do you mean strange?" "Because you sell only trumpets and guns!" "So?" "Well, let me put it this way, what do you sell the most, trumpets or guns?" "It evens itself out. Each time a customer buys a trumpet, one of his neighbors buys a gun."
