Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!

During the first half of Thursday I received all kinds of mail about
the many klutzy flaws in the White House forgery. 

In the second half, the topic changed to the question: "Why is 
the main stream media not commenting about the forgery?
Have they been scared and intimidated and forbidden to
comment on the forgery?"

Well, that seems to be rather obvious.

Have FUN!

Two English men are walking along O'Connell Street in Dublin, Ireland when they see a sign in a shop window. Suits $15.00, shirts $2.00, trousers $2.50. One said to the other one "Look at that - we could buy a lot of that gear and, when we get back to England we could make a fortune, When we go into the shop don't say anything, let me do all the talking, cause if they hear our accent they might not serve us, so I'll speak in my best Irish accent." They go in and he orders, 50 suits at $15.00, 100 shirts at $2.00 and 50 trousers at $2.50 The owner of the shop says "You're English aren't you?" The Englishman replies "Oh bother... Yes, how did you know that?" The owner says, "This is a Dry Cleaner shop."

Donald wore a toupe. One Sunday morning he was fussing about how bad it looked and everyone would know he wore a toupe. His 7 year old daughter told him "No they won't... no one I told, had known!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Daniel Alberto Barros, 23, in Miami-Dade, Florida Man struck by own car, still snags suspect DES MOINES, Iowa -- A tire store employee was hit with his own car when he tried to stop someone from stealing it over the weekend -- but despite an injured leg, he ran the car down on foot and took the suspect into custody. Timothy Ray is still sore, but he managed to return to work Monday. "Yeah, he hit me with my own car," said Ray, 36. "I tried to stop him, but he clipped me pretty good. He got me in the knee, and I rolled my ankle." The impact threw Ray back into the side of the tire store. Ray works at Graham Tire and was on duty early Saturday afternoon when someone noticed a man going through cars at some nearby businesses. By the time Ray was aware that someone was going through his Buick in the tire store parking lot, the man was starting it with keys he'd found under the seat. Ray, who was about 30 feet away when the culprit started the car and drove off, tried to stop him. After hitting Ray with the stolen car, the driver hit a fence, a utility pole and the building, and then he drove off, snapping another utility pole. Shortly thereafter, the driver crashed into a parked car. Despite his injuries, Ray was running behind his stolen car, and he caught up with the driver . His car was totaled. Ray took the thief to the ground and put him in a headlock and choke hold. Store manager Jeff Chapman was right behind Ray and helped sit on the suspect until police arrived. Robert Noah Reynolds, 18, of West Des Moines, Iowa, is charged with first-degree theft, interference with official acts, assault with intent to inflict serious injury and six counts of hit-and-run. He was in the Polk County Jail on Monday, held on $21,300 bond. Chapman said the alleged car thief "seemed to have lost his mind." "He caused a lot of destruction in a short amount of time," Chapman said.
From the Tech Support Pits: From Randal Re: What is anti-aliasing? Dear Webby, Most of the mail and reports about the official White House forgery mention that some of the stuff klutzed into the certificate has modern anti-aliasing, that was not available in those days, just like the name of the hospital or the name of the country of the father. So what is anti-aliasing? Randal Dear Randal Have a look at the certificate at the White House site: Official Birth certificate If that site is too busy and too slow, here is a cut of the top right corner from there: Look at the "1" that I circled and enlarged. Ignore the amateurish mismatch in size, look at the contour. See that nice smoothing of the outline, that makes it so much more pleasant to look at, than the "1"s from 1961 ? That smoothing is called anti-aliasing. All modern graphics programs have that since the mid 80's and have the option to turn it on or off. The official White House forger forgot to turn that anti-aliasing option off on his Mac, and thereby made it quite obvious at first glance, that it was a clumsy forgery. Have FUN DearWebby

One time, sitting in the Phoenix airport, they announced that the flight to Vegas was full. The airline was looking for volunteers to give up their seats. In exchange, they'd give you a $100 voucher for your next flight and a first class seat in the plane leaving an hour later. About eight people ran up to the counter to take advantage of the offer. About a minute later all eight of those people sat down grumpily, as the lady behind the ticket counter announced: "If there is anyone else, OTHER than the flight crew, who'd like to volunteer, please step forward."

Thanks to Ellie for this one: To confirm her suspicions my sister needed to purchase a pregnancy test kit. Since I was going to the pharmacy, she asked me to pick one up for her. I didn't stop to think how I appeared to the clerk when I waddled up, nine months pregnant, to pay for the kit. "Honey," she said, "I can save you $15 right now. You're definitely pregnant."

A young minister, in his first days at his first parish, is obliged to conduct the funeral services for an eccentric man who has just died. At he funeral home, he stands before the open casket and tries to think of words to console the widow. Finally, the minister says, "I know this must be a very hard blow, Mrs. Jones. But we must remember that what we see here is only the husk, the shell. The nut has gone to heaven."
