An old lady had always wanted to travel abroad. Now that she was getting on in years, she thought she would really like to do so before she died. But until now, she'd never even been out of the country. So she began by going in person to the Passport Office and asking how long it would take to have one issued. "You must take the loyalty oath first," responded the passport clerk. "Raise your right hand, please." The old gal raised her right hand. "Do you swear to defend the Constitution of the United States against all its enemies, domestic or foreign?" was the first question. The little old lady's face paled and her voice trembled as she asked in a small voice: "Uhhh... all by myself? Well, I suppose somebody is going to have to start doing that."
A couple drove several miles down a country road, not saying a word. An earlier discussion had led to an argument, and neither wanted to concede their position. As they passed a barnyard of mules and pigs, the wife sarcastically asked, "Relatives of yours?" "Yep," the husband replied, "In-laws."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to British supermarket giant Marks & Spencer Marks & Spencer threatens granny for eating cookie AN 86-year-old grandmother was threatened with being thrown out of a British supermarket cafe after she started nibbling a cookie she bought in the same store. A female shop assistant told "humiliated" Thelma Williams that she could be escorted out and fined for dunking her chocolate chip cookie into a cup of tea at a branch of British supermarket giant Marks & Spencer (M&S). Williams bought a scone and cookie from the food section, and then her daughter bought her a sandwich and a cup of tea in the cafe. An assistant told her she could not eat it because of the consumer tax difference between cafe and shop-bought food. "The staff made me feel as though I was a common criminal - yet I was just eating one of their biscuits," Ms Williams said. "This woman over-reacted. All the customers were looking at me. It was so embarrassing and very distressing." "Our policy is that cafe customers must only consume items bought in the cafe area." an M&S spokesman said. ---------- Britain and many other countries have a VAT (Value Added Tax). In Britain it is 17.5%, or possibly higher by now. in Canada it is called GST and is 5%. Bulk food items are generally excempt, but individual servings are taxed. If you buy ONE bun, you pay tax. If you buy a dozen, they are tax free. That aplies at the point of buying. After checking out of one section of the store, those cookies were her property, as if she had baked them at home. While restaurants generally object to you bringing your own food, making a fuss about the tax difference on one cookie is rather sleazy and definitely deserves a bonehead award.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Carol re: Windows administrator logon required Hi Webby, Here I am again!!!!! I went to order underware from a store on line, my McAfee would not let me see the pictures so I could decide which style I wanted. When I went into the McAfee program to see if I could "fix" the problem (BTW, I only get big red MCAFEE words where the picture should be), I noticed that the parental control is on. We're retired, have no grandchildren and do not want our computer restricted... I really want to be able to see what I'm buying. When I tried to change the parental control it told me I could not because I'm not logged on as administrator. We do not use a password when we boot up the computer, we just start it up and click "OK" when necessary. Is there anything I can do to fix this problem of not seeing a bra that I want to purchase? Thanks, Carol Dear Carol To see how to log on as administrator, go to The info you need is at the bottom of that page. It's actually quite easy, when you know the trick. Have FUN! DearWebby
When Jerry's daughter, Dani, was about 5 years old, she was thoroughly impressing her grandparents with her knowledge of insects while they were out for a walk. She readily identified ants, grasshoppers, crickets, ladybugs and such. When they happened upon a small beetle she did not immediately recognize, she looked at it thoughtfully, raised her foot and stomped it into oblivion on the sidewalk. 'That one', she said, 'is a Squashed Bug.'

A couple just started their Lamaze class and they were given an activity requiring the husband to wear a bag of sand - to give him an idea of what it feels like to be pregnant. The husband stood up and shrugged saying, "This doesn't feel so bad." The instructor then dropped a pen and asked the husband to pick it up. "You want me to pick up the pen as if I were pregnant, the way my wife would do it?" the husband asked. "Exactly," replied the instructor. To the delight of the other husbands, he turned to his wife and said, "Honey, pick up that pen for me."

A customer in a bakery was observed carefully examining all the rich-looking pastries displayed on trays in the glass cases. When a clerk approached him and asked, "What would you like?" he answered, "I'd like that chocolate-covered, cream-filled doughnut, that jelly-filled doughnut and that cheese Danish." Then with a sigh he added, "But I'll take an oat-bran muffin."
