Bob and Bill fly to Alaska for a fishing trip. They hire a bush pilot and rent a boat, rods and tackle. After two weeks, they've caught only one small salmon. "Man, Bill," Bob says.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a woman in Basel, Switzerland 'Ill' woman sacked for using Facebook A Swiss woman has lost her job after her bosses noticed that she was using Facebook when she claimed to be too ill to use a computer. The woman had claimed that she was suffering a migraine and had told her employer, Nationale Suisse, she needed to lie in a darkened room, reports the BBC. The company said its discovery that she was using Facebook while supposedly too ill to work, destroyed its trust in her and prompted her sacking. But the unnamed woman, who is from Basel, said she had been accessing the internet on her iPhone while in bed. She said she did not believe the company's assertion that a colleague had inadvertently noticed her using Facebook, accusing it instead of spying on her. She said the company had created a fictitious Facebook persona which become "friends" with her, allowing the company to monitor her online activity.Her suspicions were raised when the "friend" suddenly disappeared after she was fired, the woman told 20 Minuten daily. But the company says it followed a simple logic: that those who are well enough to use Facebook with a migraine are well enough to work with a migraine.

The construction foreman ordered one of his men to dig a hole 8 feet deep. But after the job was done, the boss returned and explained an error had been made and the hole wouldn't be needed. "Fill 'er up," he ordered the worker. The worker did as he'd been told. But he ran into a problem. He couldn't get all the dirt packed back into the hole without leaving a mound on top. He went to the office and explained his problem. "Honestly!" the foreman snorted. "The kind of help I get these days! There's obviously only one thing to do. You'll have to dig that hole deeper!"
