Bill's wife's psychiatrist just called him and said, "Did you know she was going to poison you?" Bill said, "No! What you suggest?" He said, "After listeneing to her for three hours, my suggestion to you is to take the poison."
Returning from a trip to visit her grandmother in Canada, a woman was stopped by a state trooper in New York for exceeding the speed limit. Grateful to have received a warning instead of a ticket, she gave him a small bag of her grandmother's delicious chocolate-chip cookies and proceeded on her way. A short time later, she was stopped by another trooper. "What have I done?" I asked. "Nothing," the trooper said, smiling. "I heard you were passing out great chocolate- chip cookies."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to a 50 year old drunk in Hampshire, England Irate drunk drives Rolls Royce into store A drunk driver drove his Rolls Royce through the windows of a Tesco superstore after staff refused to serve him alcohol. Shoppers and workers at the branch in Andover, Hampshire, had to dive for cover as the luxury car crashed into checkouts. The 50-year-old bearded man had stormed out of the shop after staff told him he was too drunk to be served any more drink. He got into the Rolls Royce where managers unsuccessfully tried to talk him out of driving after he told them what he was going to do. His first attempt at ramming the windows failed but that did not deter the enraged driver, who reversed, revved the engine and had another go. This time, he put pedal to metal and smashed right into the shop, demolishing two checkouts, counters and ceiling fittings. Emergency services were called and the store was evacuated - six women were taken to hospital with minor injuries. Hampshire Police spokeswoman Katie Wilson said: "Six women were injured and treated for cuts, bruises and shock by ambulance and air ambulance crew and taken to hospital for further checks. "A 50-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of drink driving and attempted murder."
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Irene Re: POP versus WebMail Dear Webby, What is the difference between the POP email, that you keep harping about, and regular mail like hotmail or yahoo? Irene Dear Irene Actually, POP email is regular email. It has been around a lot longer than Webmail. With POP email you pull the mail off the server, and work it with a more or less full featured email program on your computer. In the mid 90's, when Cyber Cafes became fashionable and popular, it became necessary to have a viewer, that could be used to read the email right on the server, and answer it, without having to install an email program or risk leaving any mail behind at the Cyber Cafe. The answer to that was WebMail. The email program and the mail stay on the server. Nowadays, that is called Cloud Computing. Naturally, with the email program on the server and shared by many people, it has to be rather basic and with very limited functionality. Another major difference is space. With a Webmail program you leave the mail on the server. That is fine, if you pull it down with a POP email program when you get home. However, if that is your one and only email program, the mail accumulates until it reaches a limit. Then any further email is bounced, or your mail is dumped. To conserve space on the server, operators of Webmail like for example Hotmail, often arbitrarily block large attachments or popular items. Forget trying to send Valentines Cards to a hotmail address. Their servers are overloaded at Valentines day, so they block cards, music, newsletters, etc. In summary: If your mail is important, for example business mail, use Webmail only when away from your own computer, and use POP email to pull it down and work it. If you don't have a computer of your own, or are just casually goofing around, then use a Webmail without POP back-up. Have FUN! DearWebby
Having lost weight over the past few years, a lady was discarding things from her wardrobe that no longer fit. Her seven-year-old daughter was watching as she held up a huge pair of slacks. "Wow," the lady said, "I must have worn these when I was a hundred and eighty." Her daughter looked puzzled and asked, "How old are you now?"

A man goes to a doctor for a physical checkup. The nurse starts with certain basic information and asks, "How much do you weigh?" "One-seventy," the man replies. The nurse asks him to step on the scale and it shows that his weight is actually 183. The nurse asks, "Your height?" "Five-eleven," the man answered confidently. The nurse measures and sees that he's only 5' 8". Then she takes his blood pressure, and it is very high. The man says, "Of course it's high! When I came in here, I was tall and slender. Now, suddenly I'm short and dumpy!"

One day my mother, father, younger sister and I were traveling in the car. My sister turned to me and asked, "What does horny mean?" Being 12 years older then she was I did my best to explain what horny meant in a 10 year olds world. My mother and father helped between snickers. After explaining the best we could I asked her where she heard the word horny. Very seriously she explained, Well, in science the other day we were talking about what animals we will learn about next week, an one of them is the Horny Toad!"
