Having lost weight over the past few years, a lady was discarding things from her wardrobe that no longer fit. Her seven-year-old niece was watching as she held up a huge pair of slacks. "Wow," the lady said, "I must have worn these when I was 185." Her niece looked puzzled, then asked, "How old are you now?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to the Asda store in Halifax in Yorkshire Woman needs proof of age to buy spoons HALIFAX, England (UPI) -- A British shopper says she was asked to show proof she was older than 18 when she bought teaspoons and other picnic equipment at a supermarket. The receipt for her purchase was posted on, a Web site devoted to undermining what founder Ken Frost calls "the all-pervasive nanny state," The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday. The shopper said a clerk at the Asda store in Halifax in Yorkshire told her at least one killing had been committed with a teaspoon. The government recently banned knife purchases by teenagers after a spate of killings. But a lot of people on nannyknowsbest think teaspoons are going too far. "If the government (is) going to try to take away my constitutional rights this way, I'm going to carry the biggest caliber teaspoon I can find," one person posted on the Web site. "I will give up my teaspoon when they (pry) it from my cold, dead body." Peter McCarthy, manager of the Halifax Asda, said clerks are prompted by electronic cash registers to ask for proof of age, and a bar code error is the most likely explanation.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Walla Re: Refurb Computers Dear Webby What's the story about "Refurb" computers you see advertised here and there? How reliable are they? Walla Dear Walla Refurbs from big companies are usually as good as new. They may be returned display models, returned shipping errors, and rarely, warranty returns. They are cleaned, tested, and packaged like the new ones. Quite often left over models from last season are sold off as refurbs. A refurb generally has a slightly shorter warranty, but they are just as good as a new one. Since the actual performance of a computer, or the lack of it, is determined more by the amount of utilities and programs bogging it down, than by the raw hardware, refurbs are usually a good deal.

At a dinner party, one of the guests, an obnoxiously loud young man, tried to make clever remarks about everyone and everything. He was served a piece of meat, and as he picked it up with his fork, he held it up and smirked: "Is this pig?" Another guest, sitting opposite, asked quietly: "To which end of the fork are you referring?"

Daily tip from Watch the Cash Register Screen When Checking Out When checking out items at the cashier's desk, always look at the screen to ensure that you pay the right price for the right number of things. There have been times that items are on sale, and they aren't reflected during check-out. Bring this to the attention of the cashier, at this time is much easier than coming back at a later time.

Yesterday was Bill's graduation. And as he walked across the stage, the Dean handed his diploma to him, nicely rolled up and tied with a ribbon. Once she handed it to him, he could finally tell that what he REALLY thought about her. So he leaned across her podium and looked her straight in the eye. "Hey you dingbat" he said. "You're so darn ugly,... you could practice birth control just by leaving the lights on!" And then he walked off the stage, and went home. Bill felt just as good as he had imagined it would for the last four years. Today, he unwrapped his diploma, framed it, and hung it in the living room, where it proudly exclaims to the world: "In order to receive your diploma, please present this certificate to the Dean of your college after final grades have been posted!"
Two cowboys were waiting in their fort for the Indians to attack. They listened to the distant pounding war drums. One cowboy muttered to the other, "I don't like the sound of them drums." Just then, a distant voice came over the hill, "It's not our usual drummer!"
That reminds me... An anthropologist was assigned to Borneo, where he found a guide with a canoe to take him up the river to the remote site he where he would make his collections. At noon on the second day of travel up the river they began to hear drums. "What are those drums?" asked the anthropologist, knowing he was in cannibal country. The guide turned to him and said "No worry. Drums OK, but very bad when they stop." They both went ghostly pale when the drums suddenly stopped. The guide crouched in the belly of the canoe and covered his ears. "Do as I do! Very important!" hissed the guide with great urgency. "Why? What does this mean?" asked the panicked anthropologist. In a terrified whisper the native replied: "Drums stop! Next come violin solo!"
