Happy Canada Day!


Because the great-great-grandfather of Hagar the Horrible
discovered Canada 500 years before Columbus discovered the
Caribbean, Canada's holiday is 4 days before the US holiday.
It is celebrated the same way, though: BBQ and fireworks.

Have FUN!

>From Bobbie When we went up to New England a couple of years ago we decided to stay in one of those quaint little inns. The clerk at the inn asked me if we wanted a room with a shower or a tub. "What's the difference?" I asked. "Well, in a tub, you can sit down."

A couple wanted to get married in a hurry. The man, a soldier on a 48-hour pass, took his blushing bride to see the vicar. "Impossible," said the vicar. "Even a special license would take too long." The would-be bride and bridegroom exchanged a look of misery, then a smile spread across the soldier's face. "Well," he suggested brightly, "couldn't you say a few word just to tide us over the weekend?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to Manuel Hernandez, 54, in Brockton, Mass. Burglars head pinned under garage door BROCKTON, Mass., June 29 (UPI) -- Police in Massachusetts said an alleged burglar was foiled when his head became stuck under a garage door for several hours. Brockton police said an employee at the local Rent-A-Center showed up for work around 9 a.m. Tuesday and discovered Manuel Hernandez, 54, with his head stuck between the garage door and the ground. "Obviously the employee was surprised and immediately called police," Detective Lt. Paul Bonanca said. Investigators said Hernandez, who unsuccessfully tried to convince the employee he was at the business for a legitimate purpose, used a metal bed post to try to pry the back garage door open and managed to lift it about 7 or 8 inches before trying to shimmy under. Police said the door fell as Hernandez was trying to pass underneath and his head was pinned to the ground. Hernandez, who was taken to a hospital to receive treatment for a bruise on his head, will face charges of breaking and entering and malicious damage to property, police said.
Tech Support Pits: From: Ann Re: DNS-changer Trojan Dear Webby What is all this doomsday stuff about a DNS-changer Trojan shutting down the Internet on July 9? The lower down the gossip vine you go, like MSN and Yahoo for example, the more frantic they get, using language more typical for Gullible Warming alarmists. Because of the frantic alarmist tone I think it is just BS, but is there anything to it? Thanks Ann Dear Ann You can easily check your machines to see if they are infected with that DNS-changer trojan. Simply browse to http://dns-ok.us/ If you get a green OK page, then don't worry about it. If you don't, get McAfee, like I have been recommending since 1988, and clean up your act. For those of us, who have McAfee or Kasperki, DNS-changer is not an issue. For the rest, DNS-changer may help you to wean yourself off the net and computers. Some other anti-virus programs may or may not be able to clean your machine. Check at http://dns-ok.us/ to see if your machine is clean. If not, do whatever is necessary to clean it BEFORE JULY 9. If your machine is infected with the DNS-changer trojan, you will not be able to get better anti-virus software or browse to anywhere after July 9. Have FUN! DearWebby

An Irishman's been at a pub all night drinking. The bartender finally says that the bar is closed. So he stands up to leave and falls flat on his face. He figures he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up enough. Once outside he stands up and falls flat on his face. So he crawls home and at the door stands up and falls flat on his face. He crawls through the door and up the stairs. When he reaches his bed he tries one more time to stand up. This time he falls right into bed and is sound asleep. He awakens the next morning to his wife standing over him shouting at him. "So, you've been out drinking again!!" "How did you know?" he asks. "The pub called, you left your wheelchair there again." That reminds me,,, Getting Gramma Home From Bingo

Thanks to Chris for bringing back this gem: A little boy got lost at the YWCA and wandered in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, "What's the matter? Haven't you ever seen a little boy before?"
