Dogfood Secrets from the Dogfood Conspiracy

Uncle Jon was helping one of his cows give birth, when he noticed his four-year-old Great Nephew, James, standing at the fence, wide-eyed and soaking in the whole event. Uncle Jon thought to himself: "Great, now I'm gonna have to explain the 'birds and bees' to him. Well, no need to jump the gun. I'll just wait and see if he has any questions, and I'll just answer them as best I can." After Uncle Jon finished helping the cow with her birthing, he walked over to James and asked him: "Do you have any questions about what you seen here tonight?" "Just one," the little boy whispered, eyes still wide with wonder. "How fast was that calf going when he hit the cow?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Brian Allee, 29 Jailed After Shooting Up Heroin In Front Of Son's School, With Crying Baby In Back Seat Sheboygan, Wis. (The Weekly Vice) - Brian Allee, a 29-year-old Wisconsin man was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly injected heroin while waiting in a car in front of his son's school. An 8-month-old baby was found crying in the back seat. According to Sheboygan police, officers were dispatched to Cooper Elementary School after Allee's six-year-old son found his father passed out in a car outside of his school. The child ran back into the school crying "I can't wake Daddy up." Investigators say a teacher went out to the car, which was still running, and was unable to wake Allee. A syringe was found in Allee's hand while an 8-month-old baby cried in the back seat. Arriving officers searched the car and found six foil squares of heroin, a cigarette lighter and a burned spoon that was coated with heroin residue. Needle marks were found on Allee's arm, including one mark that was still bleeding. Allee was transported to Sheboygan Memorial Hospital where he was treated and tested for drug abuse. He was taken into custody soon afterward. Allee was booked into jail and charged with child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Make Flavored Drinks with Soda Water Use carbonated spring water, which is available cheaply from chains like Asda (Walmart in US), to make up orangeade, lemonade, etc. This enables you to have a wide choice of fizzy drinks without either buying big bottles of pop which go flat quickly, or individual cans/bottles which cost more.

Two guys were discussing life in general over drinks one night. "My grandfather lived to be 96." "Ninety-six? What finally got him? "Liquor and women." "Well, that just goes to show ya," snickered the one guy, "both will get you in the end." "Well actually, no, it's not what ya think. Towards the end, Grandpa couldn't get either one, so he just laid down and died."
