A cantor, the man who sings the prayers at a synagogue, brags before his congregation in a booming, bellowing voice, "two years ago I insured my voice with Lloyds of London for $750,000." There is a hushed and awed silence in the crowded room. Suddenly, from the back of the room, the quiet, nasal voice of an elderly woman is heard, "So vat did you do with the money?"

The wise old Mother Superior from county Tipperary was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed trying to make her comfortable. They gave her some warm milk to drink, but she refused it. Then one nun took the glass back to the kitchen. Remembering a bottle of Irish whiskey received as a gift the previous Christmas, she opened and poured a generous amount into the warm milk. Back at Mother Superior's bed, she held the glass to her lips.. Mother drank a little, then a little more. Before they knew it, she had drunk the whole glass down to the last drop. "Mother," the nuns asked with earnest, "Please give us some wisdom before you die." She raised herself up in bed with a pious look on her face and said, "Don't sell that cow."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Brooke Burke, 36, North Olmsted, Ohio Refused To Stop Slow Dancing With Groom At Wedding, Attacked The Bride and cops Brooke Burke, a 36-year-old Ohio woman was jailed after she allegedly refused to stop slow dancing with the groom at a couple's wedding reception. According to police, the bride at a wedding reception got a surprise reaction when she asked Burke to stop slow dancing with her new husband. Burke, who is reportedly married to the groom's brother, took exception with the request and retaliated by taking a swing at the bride. Burke then allegedly hurled expletives at the bride as other guests pulled her away. Witnesses told police that Burke, who was visibly intoxicated, attacked the bride at least twice during the evening. A short time later, while waiting outside the reception for a cab, Burke approached the bride a third time and tried to attack her yet again. A witness who tried to restrain Burke was pushed to the ground. An auxiliary officer who attended the reception restrained Burke until she fell to the ground kicking and screaming, according to police. A second auxiliary officer rushed in to help after Burke struck the first officer in the face several times. Burke was eventually subdued, arrested and stuffed into the backseat of a police cruiser. She was transported to the North Olmsted Police station and charged with assault and disorderly conduct intoxication.

An old Jewish woman has been invited to help screen a movie for the rating it'll carry. The movie is an old remake of a Roman Gladiator-type movie. In the middle of the movie is a scene where the Romans are feeding people to the lions. The little old lady hits the buzzer she's been given, which stops the movie. The attendant comes down to her chair and says, "Yes, ma'am?" "This movie should be rated 'R'," she says, "because those Jews are being fed to the lions!" The attendant says, "Ma'am, those are Christians, not Jews." "Oh..... Ok. Well, start the movie up again." A few minutes later she again presses the buzzer. The attendant comes down to her chair. "Yes ma'am?" She points to the screen. "Those lions over there... ...they're not eating!"
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Print On The Back Side Of Paper Instead of throwing away copy paper that has been run through the printer or copier, I have started to save them. Place the used paper in a file folder or appropriate sized box to keep the corners flat and paper unwrinkled. I then use the back of these sheets to print proof reading copies or other things where it doesn't matter if the back has already been used. It can really save money and resources. I do this at home and at work and feel good about getting all the use I can out of every sheet of paper. By Bebe52 from Lambert, MS You can save even more when you use ClickBook. I have had this link in my Tool Box since the late 90's, and have saved a huge amount of paper thanks to ClickBook. Clickbok turns any cheap printer into a double-sided booklet printer. You can print an eBook in paperback book format, 4 pages per sheet, with all the sheets ordered and sorted, ready to glue or staple the spine. You don't have to figure out what goes in the back of page 247, it does all that for you. ClickBook does over 170 different formats, from broshures to table riders. Have FUN!

A woman was called to serve for jury duty, but asked to be excused because she didn't believe in capital punishment and didn't want her personal beliefs to prevent the trial from running its proper course. But the public defender liked her thoughtfulness and quiet calm spirit, so he tried to convince her that she was appropriate to serve on the jury. "Madam," he explained, "this is not a murder trial! It's a simple civil lawsuit. A wife is bringing this case against her husband because he gambled away the $12,000 he had promised to use to remodel their kitchen for her birthday." "Well, okay," agreed the woman, "I'll serve. I guess I could be wrong about capital punishment after all."

I hadn't been to a class reunion in decades. When I walked into this latest one, I thought I recognized a wife of a classmate over in the corner, so I approached her and extended my hand in greeting, saying, "You look like Helen Brown." "Well," the woman snapped back, "You don't look so great in blue either!"
