A guy is bragging to a friend about his new hearing aid. "Yeah, it's a beaut," he says. "Top of the line. Deluxe model. Cost me $4,000 bucks." "What kind is it?" his friend asks politely. "Twelve-thirty."
On the way back to New York as I was sitting in the Phoenix airport, they announced that the flight to Vegas was full. The airline was looking for volunteers to give up their seats. In exchange, they'd give you a $100 voucher for your next flight and a first class seat in the plane leaving an hour later. About eight people ran up to the counter to take advantage of the offer. About 15 seconds later all eight of those people sat down grumpily as the lady behind the ticket counter said, "If there is anyone else OTHER than the flight crew who'd like to volunteer, please step forward."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD to James Flenniken, 48, Manatee, Floriduh Jailed After Stealing Steak And Wine Dinner From Walmart, Said He Wanted To Impress His Date Reported by The Weekly Vice James Flenniken, a 48-year-old Manatee man was jailed Monday after he allegedly stole beer, wine, and steaks from a local Walmart because he wanted to impress his date. According to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office, Flenniken reportedly went into Walmart around 5:00 p.m. and stole the booze and steaks, worth a total of $79.30. A loss prevention officer who saw Flenniken steal the items stopped him at the door and called authorities. Without even being questioned, Flenniken allegedly told deputies that he had taken the items to impress a lady-friend that he was set to have a date with that night. Flenniken was booked into the Manatee County Jail and charged with petit theft-shoplifting. He is currently being held without bond. Tech Support Pits From: Vicky Re: Windows update reporting to Microsoft Dear Webby Is Windows really reporting all my sinse to Microsoft, like you had written yesterday? Vicky Dear Vicky Nah, not ALL your sins, that would take too long. Probably just the juicier ones. Do you remember clicking that AGREE button, without reading 27 pages of small print? There you agreed, that they can upload reports of your sins, in order to make the next version of Windows better. Considering the lack of speed of Windows 7, somebody must have paused a lot for some really dedicated sinning. Was that you? Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Retrieve Long Hair in a Plugged Shower Drain If drain cleaners are not working in a shower or bathtub drain, the problem might be higher up. The shower drain in my long-haired teenage daughter's bathroom was plugged so badly she ended up standing in water up to her ankles when she took a shower. I tried all kinds of drain cleaners, to no avail. Then one day, I took the grate off the top of the drain so that I could look down with a flashlight and possibly see something. What a surprise: I could only see a couple of inches down! The crossbars in the pipe, like a plus sign about two inches down, were completely covered with hair! I used needle-nose pliers to pull out a wad of long hairs as thick as my thumb, that was draped over the crossbars, hanging down like a fringe, almost completely blocking the pipe where drain cleaners had no effect.
