Ronnie McInnis walked into a dentist's office and asked how much it would cost to extract a wisdom tooth. "That'll be $80," the dentist said. "That's ridiculous," Ronnie spat. "Isn't there a cheaper way?" "Well," the dentist said, "if I don't use an anaesthetic, I can knock it down to $60." "That's still too expensive," the man whined. "Okay," the dentist countered, "if I save on anaesthetic and simply rip the tooth out with extraction pliers, I could probably get away with charging $20." "Nope," moaned the man. "It's still too much." "Hmmm," the dentist pondered, scratching his head. "If I let one of my students do it for the experience, I suppose I could charge you just $10." "Marvellous," the man beamed. "Could you book my wife for 5:30 next Friday, after she gets off work?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Pittman, 37 in Pensacola, Florida Suspect tripped up by own pants PENSACOLA, Fla. (UPI) -- Authorities in Florida said a fleeing burglary suspect was arrested after he tripped over his own fallen pants. The Escambia County Sheriff's Office said a deputy responded to an alarm at Beer City in Pensacola, Fla., at about midnight Tuesday and saw a suspect fleeing through the smashed front door of the business with several packs of cigarettes in his arms, the Pensacola News-Journal reported. The officer said the suspect's armloads of cigarettes prevented him from holding up his sagging pants, causing the trousers to fall and trip the suspect. Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Ted Roy said the deputy caught up to the suspect and "he had cigarettes scattered all around him and his pants were down by his ankles." The 37-year-old suspect, who was released from Escambia County Jail after posting $12,000 bond, was charged with criminal mischief, burglary, theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.

From the Tech Support Pits: From: Shelly Re: Can you filter gmail by date? Dear Webby, I changed jobs an need to weed out old emails. Is there any way to make a filter that will dump all mails from a certain time period or from before a certain date? Thanks Shelly Dear Shelly No, you can't do that. Google has claimed that it is on their To-Do list for ages, but it doesn't look like they are getting an closer to it. Instead they are now selling extra space. The fastest way to weed out old mails is to change the settings to show 100 mails per page, click on OLDEST, Select ALL, and DELETE. Then just keep doing that, selecting and deleting 100 mails at a time, until you are up to the date, from which onward you want to keep mails. Yes, I kow that is slow and tedious, but currently that is the fastest possible method. Have FUN! DearWebby
A father, who worked away from home all week, always made a special effort with his family at the weekends. Every Sunday morning he would take his 7 year old daughter out for a drive in the car. One particular Sunday however, he had a bad cold that he really didn't feel like driving at all. Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and decided that for this Sunday she would take their daughter out. They returned just before lunch and the little girl ran upstairs to see her father. "Well" the father asked, "did you enjoy your ride with Mommy?" "Oh yes Daddy" the girl replied, "and do you know what.......we didn't see a single bastid or dingbat, 'cause Mommy was doing the dingbat stuff herself, and scared them all away!"

A Texan is bragging to a Rhode Islander. "In Texas," he drawls, "you can get on a train, ride all day long, and still be in Texas by nightfall." "Well", replies the Yankee, "We have some rather slow trains in Rhode Island too, but none that are THAT slow."
