Stuck in CAPS 



Good Morning,  !

Today is Sunday, May 5.
Cinco de Mayo, state holiday in Mexifornia.
The Cinco de Mayo is not, in its origins, a Mexican holiday
at all but rather an American one, created by Latinos in 
California in the middle of the 19th century. The key events
celebrated on May 5 were taking place in Mexico, when Mexico
beat up the French Army and prevented France from supplying
the Confederates with arms and ammo and support and from 
breaking the Union blockade of the Southern ports.

Have FUN!

A Jewish woman's husband dies. He only had $30,000 to his name. After everything was done at the funeral home and cemetery, she tells her closest friend that there is none of the $30,000 left. The friend asked, "How can that be?" The widow replied, "Well, the funeral cost me $6,500. And of course I made a donation to the shul ..that was $500, and I spent another $500 for food and drinks for the people when I was sitting shiva. The rest went for the memorial stone." Her friend said, "$22,500 for the memorial stone? My, how big is it?" The widow said, "Three carats."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Dareka Brooks,22, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Hooker Jailed After Macing Boy, Fleeing Scene With Piggy Bank and iPad Reported by The Weekly Vice Dareka Brooks, a 22-year-old Milwaukee woman, was jailed Wednesday after she allegedly robbed a 14-year-old boy of his piggy bank after he tried to pay her for sex. According to the Cook County Sheriff's Office, a 14-year-old boy used his iPad to contact Brooks after he logged onto a website known for listing pay-for-sex advertisements. Brooks reportedly agreed to the boy's invitation and arranged to meet him at his home while his parents were away. When Brooks arrived at the boy's home to carry out the encounter, she told him to go into a bedroom and take off his pants. While the teen was sitting on his bed, Brooks maced him and fled the scene with his iPad, a piggy bank and an undisclosed amount of cash. Investigators say the teen immediately called police and gave them a description of Brooks and the vehicle she left in. Officers were able to locate Brooks at a local hotel after she turned on the boy's iPad. She was apprehended at the scene when police found the stolen items in her possession. Brooks was booked into jail and charged with armed robbery. Her bond has been set at $10,000. Tech Support Pits From: Jerry Re: Caps Locked text Dear Webby, I am editing (pro bono) a local service club monthly bulletin and occasionally get a script IN ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. I don't mind going through two or three paragraphs, but it will take forever to rewrite several pages -- not to mention how boring it is. If anyone knows a shortcut, I figure it is you. CAN YOU HELP? Thanx, Jerry Dear Jerry Just send it back to them and tell them that they are giving AOL a bad name, again. Jerry, you are not doing them a favor by lowering your standards to theirs! Bring them up to YOURS! He's a poor teacher, who has never been called a meanie. Have FUN! DearWebby

A Kiwi was hoping to immigrate to Australia. Upon arriving in Australia, he was questioned by a customs officer, "What is your business in Australia?" "I wish to immigrate," was the Kiwi's reply. The customs officer then asked, "Do you have a conviction record?" Confused, the Kiwi then replied, "I didn't know you still needed one!"

Waiting in a long, slow-moving line for security clearance at the Edmonton International Airport in Canada, I was annoyed to hear a loud male voice behind me. "Excuse me, excuse me," said the man as he pushed his way to the front. "I want to make sure I get a good seat." I resolved not to let this line-jumper get ahead of me. When I felt a tap on my shoulder. I slowly turned around, prepared to give the man a sriously raised eybrow, -- but found myself face to face with a smiling pilot.
There was a university in New England where the students operated a "bank" of term papers and other homework assignments. There were papers to suit all needs. Since it would look odd if an undistinguished student suddenly handed in a brilliant essay, there were papers for an A grade, B grade, and C grade. One student, who had spent the weekend on more "extra-curricular pursuits," went to the bank, and as his course was a standard one he took out a paper for a inconspicuous C. He then retyped it and handed the work in. In due course he received it back with the professor's comments. "I wrote this paper myself twenty years ago. I always thought it was worth an A, and now I'm pleased to give it one!"
