Church service coincided with the last day of hunting season. The pastor asked who had bagged a deer. No one raised a hand. Puzzled, the pastor said, "I don't get it. Last Sunday many of you said you were missing because of hunting season. I had the whole congregation pray for your deer." One hunter groaned, "Well, it worked. The deer are all safe. Next time pray for the hunters!"
A man went on a ski trip, and was knocked unconscious by the chair lift. He called his insurance company from the hospital, but it refused to cover his injury. "Why is the injury not covered?" he asked. "You got hit in the head by a chair lift," the insurance rep said. "That makes you an idiot, and we consider that a pre- existing condition."

From the Tech Support Pits: From:Margee Re: Does McAfee slow down your computer? Dear Webby, Question about McAfee. Does it slow down you computer when running ordinary programs? Or is it only a problem on rare occasions? Thanks, Margee :) >/i> Dear Margee You can schedule the scanning for times when you are not doing anything strenuous, however, a scan doesn't slow down things very much anyway. The update downloads naturally slow down other downloads, that you try to do at the same time. If you are downloading a 2 GB movie at the same time, on slow dial-up, it all has to come through your modem. If you are trying to do some fast shopping at the some time, it will be frustratingly slow. But that is because your modem can handle only so much traffic. That applies to ANY virus protection, not just McAfee. McAfee probably sends updates a bit more often than others, but on a fast connection you barely notice it. Have FUN! DearWebby
A freshman walked into the campus bookstore. Questioning the store clerk about a book for one of his classes, the clerk responded, "This is the book you want for that class. It will do half the work for you!" "Great," the young man replied, "I'll take two."

The Father, passing thru the son's college town late one night on a business trip, thought he would pay a surprise visit to the boy. Arriving at the fraternity house, he knocked on the door. After several minutes of knocking, a sleepy voice drifted down from a second floor window. "Whaddya want?" "Does Jimmy Duncan live here?" asked the father. "Yeah!" replied the voice. "Just dump him on the front porch as usual. We'll hose him down and try to sober him up in the morning."

Right outside her front door, Joe's mother had a thermometer that never seemed to tell the correct temperature. One chilly day, we all noticed that the thermometer, which was in direct sunlight, read a balmy 72 degrees. "Mom," Joe's wife suggested without thinking, "you should stick that thing where the sun doesn't shine."
