An old man strode in to his doctors office and said, "Doc, my druggist said to tell you to change my prescription and to check the prescription you've been giving to Mrs. Smith." "Oh, he did, did he?" the doctor shot back. "And since when does a druggist second guess a doctor's orders?" The old man says, "Since he found out Mrs Smith is pregnant and I've been on birth control pills since February."

A frog decided to call the psychic hotline and see what his future held for him. The psychic says, "You will meet a very beautiful girl, who will want to know everything about you."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Tiffany Jacobs and Alvina Leiba, both 19 in Deltona, Florida Heavy Pizza Robbery A “wide view” Florida woman and her companion are facing felony charges after the ravenous duo allegedly hatched a harebrained plot to rob a Pizza Hut deliveryman of two large pizzas, 14 chicken wings, and an apple pie. Short on cash, Tiffany Jacobs and Alvina Leiba, both 19, concocted a plan to score the free grub, which was delivered around midnight to Leiba’s home in Deltona, according to a charging affidavit prepared by the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. In interviews with deputies, Jacobs and Leiba said they did not have enough money to pay for the Pizza Hut food, so they “planned on scaring the pizza delivery man into leaving prior to them paying.” Jacobs (Two-Ton, left) told cops that Leiba (right) gave her “all black clothing and a mask to wear,” and that she “obtained a wooden bat from the neighbor’s yard to intimidate the pizza delivery man with.” When Pizza Hut employee Brian Healy, 19, arrived at Leiba’s home, she directed him to put the food down on a table inside the doorway while she searched for extra cash (she was holding only $12). That’s when the 5’ 1”, 200-pound Jacobs, in her wanna-be ninja getup, emerged from her hiding spot and approached Healy from behind. Jacobs, who has used the alias "Shaccariana Jackson," told cops that she planned to scare the deliveryman by swinging the bat at a pole near the doorway, but “accidentally” hit him in the side and head a few times. Healy told deputies that a “large African American female” assailant struck him in the head and left arm with a baseball bat. After wrestling the bat out Jacobs’s hands, he threw it into the yard, as Jacobs fled. Remarkably, Healy then returned to the front door and “asked the original customer if she was going to pay for the food.” While Leiba claimed that she was calling police, presumably to report him for attacking her partner, Healy returned to the roadway and he actually dialed 911. Expecting cops to arrive at the residence, Jacobs and Leiba hid in some nearby woods until sunrise. The pair then returned to Leiba’s home, where they subsequently ate the Pizza Hut food. After the women were arrested and placed in a holding cell, they “laughed profusely about the situation,” according to the affidavit sworn by Deputy Kyle Walter. Leiba remarked that she “would not pay any fines assigned to her and would flee to Trinidad” and said she was “so hungry she would rob a McDonald’s with Jacobs when they got out of jail.” Jacobs told investigators that she and Leiba had “been planning on robbing a pizza delivery man for approximately one year” and had actually attempted a Pizza Hut heist several months ago. In the original attempt, Jacobs answered the door, “while Leiba was supposed to scare the delivery man.” Who happened to be Healy. However, the 5’ 3”, 120-pound Leiba failed to scare the Pizza Hut worker and “Jacobs stated that she paid for the pizza during that incident.” Asked if he had previously delivered to the Deltona residence, Healy recalled a “suspicious incident” during which “the wider individual answered the door, while the not so wide female approached him from the rear.” Healy added that he was not assaulted that time, nor did he contact police. Jacobs, charged with armed robbery and aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, is being held in the Volusia County jail in lieu of $3000 bail. Leiba, facing an armed robbery count, bailed out of custody Saturday after posting $1500.
Tech Support Pits: From: sex c sass c Re: "Flame" virus Dear Webby Enjoy your newlsetter everyday and the questions that others ask. I don't always understand the questions/answers but do find them interesting. My question is abput this new virus making headlines nicknamed Flame. What do you know about it and do we have fear it over here in this part of the woods? Thanks for all you do and for making us smile! sex c sass c Dear Sex C Sass C Security firms have not been warning of any direct risk to average Internet users. Sophos' noted that "Flame" has only been discovered in a few hundred computers in Iran and thereabouts. “Certainly, it's pretty insignificant when you compare it to the 600,000 Mac computers which were infected by the Flashback malware earlier this year.” Flame can extract huge amounts of data, that takes a great amount of work to analyze. Therefore it's owners are limiting it to just a few hundred carefully targeted "high value" computers. It's not really a virus anyway. It does not seem to replicate itself and spread on it's own, but seems more a carefully targeted invasion. As long as you don't build nuclear bombs in your kitchen or engage in any terrorism or significant threat to peace, Flame won't be targeted at you. However, even if you only terrorize hubby and the dog, it is still a good idea to keep your McAfee up to date. Have FUN! DearWebby

The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. On the other hand, the French eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans. Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like. It's speaking English that kills you.

Little Tommy had been to a birthday party at a friend's house. Knowing his sweet tooth Tommy's mother looked straight into his eyes and said, "I hope you didn't ask for a second piece of cake." "No," replied Tommy, "but I asked Mrs. Smith for the recipe so you could make some like it, and she gave me two more pieces without me asking."

Three old ornery grandmas were sitting on a bench outside a nursing home. About then an old man walked by, and one of the old grandmas says, "We bet we can tell how old you are." The old man said, "There ain't no way you can guess it." One of the ornery grandmas said, "Sure we can! Just drop your undershorts and we can tell your exact age." He did. The grandmas stared at him for a while and then they all piped up and said, "You're 84 years old!" The old man was stunned. "Amazing! How did you guess that?" The ornery old grandmas, laughed. Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, all three happily yelled in unison, "You told us yesterday!"
