A woman was driving her old car on the highway with her 7 year old son, Little Johnny. She tried to keep up with traffic but they were flying by her. After getting caught in a large group of cars speeding down the road, she looked at her speedometer and saw that she was going 15 miles over the speed limit. Slowing down, she moved over to the side and got out of the clump that soon left her behind. She looked up and saw the flashing lights of a police car. Pulling over she waited for the officer to come up to her car. As he did he said, "Ma'am do you know why I pulled you over?" From the back seat, Little Johnny yelled, "I do! Because with that big clunky lemon of yours you couldn't catch the fast cars!"
After a long, dry sermon, the minister announced that he wished to meet with the church board following the close of the service. The first man to arrive and greet the minister was a total stranger. "You misunderstood my announcement. This is a meeting of the board members," explained the minister. "I know," said the man, "but if there is anyone here more bored than I am, then I'd like to meet him."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Christina Cifaldi, 22, of Cape Coral, Florida Police arrest woman for urinating on clothes at Walmart 8:35 P.M. UPDATE — Police have found and arrested a woman suspected of urinating on clothes at a Walmart store in Cape Coral. Christina Cifaldi, 22, of Cape Coral was charged with criminal mischief and property damage. Employees at the store on Del Prado Boulevard told officers that they saw her take $163 in clothes off the racks and go into a fitting room. The employees told police that the woman then urinated on the clothes and left the store. Police found Cifaldi because she left her wallet, with her driver’s license, in the changing room along with the urine-soaked clothes. She was released today from the Lee County Jail after paying $500 bail. Her next court appearance on the criminal mischief charge is May 11. There was no mention of any health or medical related emergency, urgency or accident.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Christine re: File Associatons in Windows 7 Dear Webby I too got raped by W7, against my wishes and choice. Until I can convert it to XP or Linux, I am reminded a hundred times a day of the salesman saying: "You will get used to everything being slower. You are not as fast any more as you once were." Well, he had one foot up on a box of paper and my knee was still a lot faster than his balls. Luckily his manager and some other employees saw it, sided with me, and he got fired. That doesn't help me cope with this alien crap. How does one change the file association? There is no "File Types" in Folder Options, and "Default Programs" in the Control Panel is a perverted way to waste time and does not work right either. What rigmarole do I have to go through now? Christine Dear Christine I hope you did not hurt your knee! Open the File Explore, and find a file of that type. Highlight it, right-click it and select Properties. Hit CHANGE beside "Opens With" and browse to the program you want to use. It might not be listed there, and you may have to browse to where it is located Doubleclick it to select it. Look for another file of that type to see if it is correctly associated with your chosen program. Depending on how your File Explore works, you may also see a sub menu bar with Organize - Open \/ - Print - Burn - NewFolder Hit that little down arrow beside Open and you will be able to select from SOME of the installed programs and also set the default program. You can also go to Control Panel All Control Panel Items Default Programs ASSociate A File Type That is roughly equivalent to TOOLS, Folder Options, File Types, just a lot less user friendly.

A young woman was suffering badly from hay fever. She was going to a fancy dinner party that night and figured she would need at least two handkerchiefs to get her through the evening. She didn't have any pockets, so she stuffed them both in her bra. Halfway through the night, she had already used up one handkerchief and was rummaging around in her bra for the other one. She was having trouble finding it, and soon she noticed that everyone at the table was looking at her. "What on earth are you doing?" asked one of her colleagues. She replied, "I could have sworn I had two when I arrived".
Daily tip from Magic Eraser for Clean Sneakers I can't stand having dirty sneakers. I used to use white shoe polish but it smells, takes a while to dry and can stain. I've found that using a Mr. Clean magic erase block (or similar store brand erase block) works wonderful at whitening even the oldest dingy sneakers. I tried using bleach on one shoe and the erase block on the other and I was surprised to find the shoe I used the erase block on looked much better.

With the help of a fertility specialist, a 65 year old woman has a baby. All her relatives come to visit and meet the newest member of their family. When they ask to see the baby, the 65 year old mother says "not yet." A little later they ask again to see the baby. Again the mother says "not yet." Finally they say, "When can we see the baby?" And the mother says, "When the baby cries." They all ask, "Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?" The new mother says, "because I forgot where I put it."

A man was wheeling himself frantically down the hall of the hospital in his wheelchair, just before his operation. A nurse stopped him and asked, "What's the matter?" He said, "I heard the nurse say, 'It's a very simple operation, don't worry, I'm sure it will be all right.'" "She was just trying to comfort you, what's so frightening about that?" "She wasn't talking to me. She was talking to the doctor!"
