A generously endowed young lady at a major university often got teased by her sorority sisters for being so top-heavy. At a fraternity party, a young man asked her what she would like to drink. "Diet soda, please," she replied. "Oh, you must be the double D." he said. The girl was furious, wondering which of her so-called friends had divulged such personal information. "And just what do you mean by that?" she snapped. Surprised at her angry response, the young man meekly answered, "Oh, you know -- the Designated Driver."
A wife went to the police station with her next-door neighbor to report that her husband was missing. The policeman asked for a description. She said, "He's 35 years old, 6 foot 4, has dark eyes, dark wavy hair, an athletic build, weighs 185 pounds, is soft-spoken, and is good to the children." The next-door neighbor protested, "Your husband is 5 foot 4, chubby, bald, has a big mouth, and is mean to your children." The wife replied, "No, I don't want THAT one back. I want the next one!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Kyle Sumrall, 26, of Reidsville, NC Thief plants syringes for diversion Henry County, VA -- Investigators in Henry County have connected Kyle Sumrall to a case involving a needle in a bag of M&M's Sumrall was charged on Monday with tampering with products at an Eden Walmart. Authorities there say he placed syringes in a tube of meat and a box of Q-tips to distract employees while he stole a vacuum. Henry County deputies say that Sumrall was the same individual that approached a clerk on Saturday at a Walgreens Drug Store on Greenboro Road. They say he showed the clerk a package of M&M's with a needle stuck through it. During an interview with detectives, Sumrall said he would take an item from a business and put a needle in it. He would take the item to a store employee to divert their attention. At the same time, he said an accomplice would steal other store merchandise. Sumrall is being held on felony charges in Rockingham County under a $500,000 bond. The district attorney in Henry County is reviewing the case to determine additional charges.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Eileen Re: Time to format and re-install Hi Dear Webby. Sorry to be such a pest, but I asked you a few questions yesterday & you gave me good information on how to correct them. My problem is I can't come up with the pages you suggested. I'm wondering since the computer had to be completely restored, the person who did the back-up for me apparently missed some things. Would it be safe for me to install the original disk that came with the computer? I'm hoping to get everything back onto my computer that I'm now missing. Hope this makes sense to you. I'm trying to get help but so far have been unable to get someone. Many Thanks for all the help you have been to me. Eileen Dear Eileen Yes, personally I would 1) use the original XP Setup CD to format the machine and do a clean installation 2) Tell Windows to go fly a kite if it wants to update 3) install McAfee IMMEDIATELY 4) Get the IE7 and IE8 and SP3 blockers from the Tool Box 5) Get FireFox 6) Let Windows do an update, but in Custom mode, not Express, and make 100% sure that it does not slither SP3 in. Your machine most likely does not like SP3. After that, your machine will run as fast and smoothly as it did on the day you bought it. Have FUN! DearWebby
In the mid 60's a US Navy cruiser put in to port in Mississippi for a week's shore leave. The first evening, the Captain was more than a little surprised to receive the following letter from the wife of a wealthy plantation owner: "Dear Captain, Thursday, will be my daughter Melinda's coming of age party. I would like you to send four well-mannered, handsome, unmarried officers. They should arrive at 8 p.m. prepared for an evening of polite Southern conversation and dance with lovely young ladies. One last point: No Jews - We don't like Jews." Sure enough, at 8 PM on Thursday, the lady heard a rap at the door which she opened to find, in dress uniform, four exquisitely mannered, smiling BLACK officers. Her lower jaw hit the floor, but pulling herself together she stammered, "There must be some mistake." "Madam," said the first officer, "Captain Aaron Goldstein doesn't make mistakes."

Al Capp, creator of the famous comic strip Lil Abner, was one day invited to a university to give a lecture to the students. Before he could begin speaking to the large group assembled in the auditorium, an unkempt-looking student at the back shouted a vulgar word at him. The word hung in the air as an uncomfortable silence lasted but a moment... Capp, keeping his cool, quipped, "Now that you've given us your name, what is your question?"
