Many readers pointed out to me that, when Iran raided the US
embassy and university in 1979, Obama was a teenage Muslim
in Indonesia, and cheering for Iran. Unlike Americans and 
PRO-Americans his age or older, his emotional connection
is on the opposite side. His lame, pro-forma response showed
yet again, on which side he is on. 

Have FUN!

Three churches - Baptist, Methodist, and Presbyterian - worked together to sponsor a community-wide revival. After the revival had concluded, the three pastors were discussing the results with one another. The Methodist minister said, "The revival worked out great for us! We gained 4 new families." The Baptist preacher said, "We did better than that! We gained 6 new families." The Presbyterian pastor said, "Well, we did even better than that! We got rid of our 10 biggest trouble makers!"

A woman walked up to the manager of a Walmart store. "Are you hiring any help?" she asked. "No," he said. "We already have all the staff we need." "In that case, would you mind trying to find someone to help me in sporting goods?" she asked. --------------- That's when we heard over the PA system: "I got somebody by the balls in sporting goods and need some help."

Kimberley Crain, who got yesterday's Bonehead Award, has been arrested today. An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Elyse De Stefano Busted For Tearing Down Wanted Posters A University of Iowa student was arrested Tuesday night for tearing down wanted posters featuring the photo of a friend being sought in connection with the attempted murder of a police officer. Elyse De Stefano, 21, copped to tearing down four posters at a Kum & Go market, according to a criminal complaint. The posters offered a $2000 reward for information leading to the identity and arrest of a man who nearly choked an Iowa City cop to death during a mid-November confrontation. During questioning, De Stefano said she “freaked out” when she saw the posters, since she recognized the suspect as Branden Plummer. De Stefano told cops that her roommate dates Plummer’s roommate, and that she tore down the posters “so others would not recognize Plummer,” according to a criminal complaint. Police, who began putting up the wanted posters Tuesday, arrested Plummer hours later. Plummer, a 20-year-old University of Iowa student, was charged with the attempted murder of Sergeant Brian Krei. De Stefano, pictured above, was cited for misdemeanor criminal mischief for tearing down the posters, which cops valued at $2 apiece.
Tech Support Pits: From: Frank Re: Fragile Z-Arm desk lamps Dear Webby, you have on a few occasions recommended those Z-Arm desk lamps for use with spiral lightbulbs. I don't remember seeing you mention, that they are extremely fragile, and with the extra weight of those heavy spiral bulbs, don't last more than half a year. Is there a way to fix the stem, that breaks off? Frank Dear Frank Yes, they use a very cheap bakelite type plastic with soot and sawdust mixed in as filler,and a poorly designed hollow stem, that WILL break at the earliest opportunity. It is designed to keep their factory in China busy, not to keep you happy. I usually just saw off the broken stem and file the surface flat and smooth. Then I epoxy the head of a 1/2" bolt onto it. That just fits into the hole, where the stem used to go in. So far, regular 5 Minute 2-component Epoxy has outlasted the original plastic by years. Have FUN! DearWebby

Some engineers from the U.S.G.S. surveyed some property and found that in a certain area, the New Hampshire and Maine border must be changed. They stopped to inform a farmer that he was no longer in Maine, but in New Hampshire. After a long pause, he grunted and said, "That's good. I couldn't take another one of these Maine winters anyway."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keeping Cats Out of the Garden To keep cats out of the garden, make some small holes in the bottom of an old plastic milk jug. Put some mothballs inside the jug and put lid back on it. Hang it on your garden fence or close to the garden. A lot of animals don't like the smell of mothballs and you put them in the jug to keep them dry so they smell longer. This won't harm the little kitty.

There's this cathedral that's still being worked on, and the workers have rigged a "cage elevator" inside so they can get material up and down to the upper floors. A characteristic of these "cage elevators" is that the doors (gate) must be closed manually for them to be "called" to another floor. One day one of the workers, Peter by name, takes the elevator to the top floor, and it is subsequently needed on the first floor by the sexton. Unfortunately, Peter forgot and left the door open. After the sexton rings for the elevator a couple times, to no avail, he yells up for the worker to send the lift back down. Visitors to the cathedral were treated to this sight: The sexton of the cathedral, head tipped up, yelling to the heavens: "Peter! CLOSE THE GATE !"
