While on a flight from New York, the Stewardess was busy passing out peanuts and cokes to everyone. There were about sixteen flights lined up waiting to get clearance to take off. Then the other Stewardess got a message from the Pilot that the tower said the wind had changed 180 degrees and they were first in line to take off, and to have everyone buckle up. Without thinking she just announced "Please buckle up, grab your drinks and hold your nuts, we're taking off".

Speaking of nuts, .... Goadster, Buckethead, and Graahound were all locked away in the Armstrong Mental Institution for many many years. (Where they belonged, mind you.) One day, the head quack tells them that if they pass a test he wanted to administer to them, they'd be deemed mentally competent and free to leave the nut house. Should they fail, however, they'd be locked away for another five years of observation. All three took the doc up on his offer. The four of them went to the hospital's indoor pool. The pool was drained of water. The doctor leads the patients up to the diving platform. The doctor motions to Goadster. "Jump." Without hesitation, Goadster leaps off the platform, right into the pool, breaking both arms in the process. The doctor notes this on his clipboard and tells Buckethead, "Jump." Also without hesitation, Buckethead flies off the platform into the empty poll, breaking both of his legs. After noting the results on his clipboard, the doctor tells Graahound, "Jump." Graahound shakes his head. "Naw. I don't think so." The doctor notes this on his clipboard rather enthusiastically and says, "Congratulations, 'Hound. You're a free man. Just tell me one thing. Why didn't you jump?" "Easy," Graahound says, "I can't swim."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Lynda Bernhisel, 21, Philadelphia, PA Jailed After Crushing Dog's Skull With Broom Handle and Failing To Show Up To Court On Child Abuse Charge Reported by The Weekly Vice Lynda Bernhisel, a 21-year-old Pennsylvania woman, was jailed Friday after she allegedly crushed a dog's skull with a broomstick after failing to show up to court for a child abuse charge. According to police, Bernhisel stirred up a confrontation with her neighbor by first insulting the neighbor's father-in-law who is dying of cancer. The neighbor, identified as Dana Cassidy, told police that Bernhisel frequently antagonized her, so when Bernhisel continued with the harassment she decided to stand her ground and argue back. That's when Bernhisel grabbed a wooden broomstick handle and began beating Cassidy's little dog with it. When Cassidy tried to intervene, Bernhisel allegedly struck her with the handle before continuing to beat the dog in the head. Investigators say Bernhisel struck the dog repeatedly until his skull was crushed in. When police arrived on the scene, the dog was dead due to his injuries and Cassidy was found with large lacerations to her arm and leg. Bernhisel was immediately taken into custody. Officers also learned that a warrant had been issued for Bernhisel's arrest after she failed to show up for court last August to answer a child abuse charge. Court records indicate Bernhisel was arrested in October 2011 after she was found sleeping with a male companion inside a restaurant at or near the Holiday Inn in Logan Township. The pair were unable to be aroused until police arrived on the scene and appeared disoriented when officers were finally able to get them to sit up. As the couple was being taken into custody, the male companion told officers that Bernhisel's baby had been left alone in a room at the hotel. Then, according to court records, Bernhisel reportedly failed to show up for a court ordered status hearing after a Gloucester County grand jury indicted her on the child abuse charge. Bernhisel was booked into jail on a new charges of animal cruelty and aggravated assault. Her bail has been set at $5,000. Tech Support Pits From: Dixie Re: Uploading pictures Dear Webby, Is there an easy way to upload pictures from a hotel lobby computer or cyber cafe, without having to install any programs first? I did get that $12 lexar chip reader that you recommended and it works fine at home. As soon I put the camera memory chip into it, Windows sees a new harddrive, the chip reader. Dixie Dear Dixie Don't try to use drobbox from a hotel lobby computer! Chances are that somebody already has done that, and now all camera uploads go straight to that account, as soon as you plug your camera. To UNlink that computer from a DropBox account, you need the user name and password of whoever set up that account, maybe years ago. If that account is set to delete the pictures from the camera after uploading, you loose them and won't know until it is too late! If you can't take a laptop along, get yourself some cheap web space. You can get a sub-directory like dixie.dawna.com for $2 a month. Then you can simply log on with an FTP program, and drag (copy) the pictures from the camera to your site. Then, when you get home again, you drag (copy) them from your site to your home computer. Nothing to it, and if you don't need your site any more until the next year, simply send an email to cansel it. Some places insist on a $10 minimum to try to cover set-up and billing cost, but with Webby, if you are a subscriber, you can get a single month for $2. There are no refunds, though, for unused portions of a month. Have FUN! DearWebby

Thanks to Rick for this story: After four years of separation, my wife and I finally divorced amicably. I wanted to date again, but I had no idea of how to start, so I decided to look in the personals column of the local newspaper. After reading through all the listings, I circled three that seemed possible in terms of age and interest, but I put off calling them. Two days later, there was a message on my answering machine from my ex-wife . "I came over to your house to borrow some tools today and saw the ads you circled in the paper. Don't call the one in the second column. It's me. And the one in the third column is my mother."

A group of young medical students started their psychiatry rotation and were a little worried about what they would encounter, after hearing all the rumors from other students. On the first day, they went to the Psychiatric ward and were quite relieved when the Registrar, Dr. Nathaniel Bigelow, introduced himself and took the group into the teaching room. Dr. Bigelow told the medical students about all the patients on the ward, with precise details and complete information, and then entertained them with stories about staff members, who seemed to be even nuttier than the patients. Unfortunately, the worries of young medical students returned in an instant, when the real Registrar entered the teaching room and said, "Good morning, everyone. I am Doctor David Filmore. I see, you have met Bigelow, here. He has been one of our patients for quite some time, now."
Thanks to Michelle for this one: The garbage man came early today. I heard his truck from inside the house so I threw on my robe and ran outside to catch him. He was pulling away from the neighbors curb when he saw me running and waiving my arms. "Hey! Wait!" I yelled. "Am I too late?" He looked me up and down and said, "Nah, just jump right in."
