Dogfood Secrets from the Dogfood Conspiracy

Although born to a Catholic family, Chester had always wanted to be Jewish. As a senior in college, he decided to take the plunge and go through the formal conversion process. He studied Judaism all semester. Finally, he felt he was ready to take the test and complete the conversion. On the appointed day, he arrived at the Rabbi's office, ready to begin. The Rabbi said, "I'm sorry, but before I give you the test, I must discuss my fee, It's $5,000." "$5,000!" exclaimed Chester, "That's a lot of money. How about $500?" "Congratulations, you pass." said the Rabbi.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Jeffrey Sevigny, 49 of Pembroke, Mass Drunk driving with a Bobcat is third DUI A 49-year-old Pembroke man is facing his third drunken driving charge after neighbors said they saw him doing “doughnuts” while driving a Bobcat tractor on one of the town’s main roads. Jeffrey Sevigny of 72 Mill St. was arraigned Thursday in Plymouth District Court and was being held on $2,500 cash bail. He was charged with third-offense drunken driving, driving with a suspended license as a subsequent offense and negligent driving. Witnesses told police they saw Sevigny riding a Bobcat tractor on Center Street and Mill Street at about 8 p.m. Wednesday. It is illegal to operate tractors on public roads, Pembroke police Lt. Mike Jenness said. Witnesses told police they saw Sevigny doing “doughnuts”, circular maneuvers that leave skid marks on the road, near Tubbs Meadow. Police said they saw Sevigny driving the tractor onto a dirt area off the road. Authorities saw wheel marks left by the tractor on Center and Mill streets, Jenness said. Police said they could smell alcohol on Sevigny’s breath. No field sobriety tests were conducted because the driver was too drunk, Jenness said. Sevigny is due back in court April 20.
Tech Support Pits: From: Kevin Re: voice volume on VOIP Dear Webby, I have had Voice Over IP for my phone for almost a year and have been reasonably happy with it. Lately I noticed that with some people I have a rela problem hearing them. Not all, but especially with sales people the volume seems to be really low. Is that due to VOIP ? Thanks Kevin Dear Kevin Since you can hear some people normally, the problem is most likely just lazy people using a speakerphone and not talking directly at it. Insist on talking to the manager or owner of that business, and complain. The alternative is to switch to a supplier, where they care enough about their customers to use head-sets or regular phones, or at least talk directly at a speakerphone. With incoming calls I am quite fussy. If the volume is too low, or the background noise sounds like a laundromat or a call center in Pakistan, I put the phone down, and let them listen to my radio until they hang up. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Bob for this one: It was moving day. The previous owners were going to finish moving out that morning, and we were going to start moving in that afternoon. We showed up just as they were finishing up, around lunchtime. The couple was sitting down for a breather before they left. The wife suggested to her husband that they go to McDonald's for lunch. She told us with guilty pleasure, "I know it's not good for me, but I just love burgers and fries." Her husband had a somewhat disgusted look on his face. He told us, in all seriousness, "Not me. I'm a meat and potatoes man."

It is said that when you tell an Englishman a joke, he will laugh three times. First - when you tell it, to be polite. Second - when you explain it, to be polite. And third - in the middle of the night when he wakes up and finally gets it. When you tell an Irishman the same joke, he will laugh twice. First - when you tell it, to be polite, even if he was the one who told you the joke last week. And second - when he tells it to you again next week. When you tell an American the same joke he won't laugh at all. Instead he will say, "It's an old joke. The Irishman told it to me last week."
