Freedom of the press is limited to those who own one. --- A. J. Liebling (1904 - 1963)
>Thanks to jkabb34 for this one: An old man and woman were married for many years, even though they hated each other. Fighting and yelling was heard at all times of the day and night. The old man would shout, "When I die, I will dig my way up and out of the grave and come back and haunt you for the rest of your life!" Neighbors feared him. The old man liked the fact that he was feared. To everyone's relief, he died of a heart attack when he was 98. His wife had a closed casket at the funeral. After the burial, she went straight to the local bar and began to party as if there was no tomorrow. Her neighbors, concerned for her safety, asked "Aren't you afraid that he may indeed be able to dig his way out of the grave and haunt you for the rest of your life?" The wife put down her drink and said, "Let him dig. I had him buried upside down. And I know he won't ask for directions."

A man was walking along the beach at Malibu when he found a bottle. He looked around and didn't see anyone so he opened it. A genie appeared and thanked the man for letting him out. The genie said, "For your kindness I will grant you one wish, but only one." The man thought for a minute and said, "I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but have never been able to because I'm afraid of flying and ships make me claustrophobic and ill. So, I wish for a bridge to be built from here to Hawaii." The genie thought for a few minutes and said, "No, I don't think I can do that. Just think of all the work involved with the pilings needed to hold up the highway and how deep they would have to be to reach the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement that would be needed. No, that is just too much to ask." The man thought for a minute and then told the genie, "There is one other thing that I have always wanted. I would like to be able to understand women. What makes them laugh and cry, why are they temperamental, why are they so difficult to get along with? What do they mean when they say 'NOTHING, YOU MORON!' Basically, what makes them tick?" The genie considered for a few minutes and said, "Stuff me back into my bottle."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to (Picture is of a previously arrested sex offender named Kerry Lee Bobo, might be a different Kerry Lee Bobo) Kerry Lee Bobo, 53, from Atwater, California Jailed for foil wrapped gun in luggage Reported by The Smoking Gun MAY 13--A man who apparently thought that a pistol wrapped in aluminum foil would be undetectable to airport X-ray machines is facing a federal criminal charge for allegedly trying to smuggle the loaded weapon on a flight from San Francisco to Europe. Kerry Lee Bobo, 53, was planning to fly last Thursday afternoon to Amsterdam when Transportation Safety Administration screeners “noticed what appeared to be a handgun” in a checked suitcase, according to a U.S. District Court complaint. When federal agents opened Bobo’s luggage they found a loaded Sig Sauer .45-caliber handgun “wrapped in aluminum foil” and a taser. They then boarded Bobo’s KLM flight and escorted the Atwater, California resident from the aircraft. During questioning, Bobo said that he was continuing on to Nairobi from Amsterdam and had packed the gun “to protect himself from animals while in Kenya.” Bobo, who was traveling alone, claimed that he had encased the weapon in aluminum foil to “thwart airport baggage personnel from stealing it.” Investigators were not buying that explanation. In a sworn affidavit, a Homeland Security agent reported that, “I know that some people believe--incorrectly--that aluminum foil can somehow block x-ray and other security screening devices.” Investigators concluded that Bobo wrapped the firearm in foil “to conceal the handgun and prevent its discovery.” Charged with a felony carrying a maximum of ten years in prison, Bobo was released from custody last Friday on a $50,000 unsecured bond. He is scheduled for a May 31 preliminary hearing. In the 80's and 90's, before the Tourism Suppression Agency got so fanatically hysterical, I think they were called FATASS in those days, it was a common joke to wrap a vibrator in alu foil, to ENSURE it showed up in the scanner, and slip it into people's carry-on luggage to cause them a lot of embarrassment. It was so common, that during busy times the screeners just grinned and ignored the obvious bait. Bobo must have just fallen off the turnip wagon. Tech Support Pits From: George Re: Adjusting route on Google Earth Dear Webby Google Earth has much better mapping than Mapquest, but there seems to be be no way to adjust a route. Sometimes the route it shows is OK, but quite often it is not. If I want to take fast roads, that are a bit further, instead of zig-zagging through unsafe neighborhoods, HOW do I adjust the route? And is there a way to change the route color? George Dear George You can't. To adjust the route, you have to get out of Google Earth, open either AOL's Mapquest or Google Maps. On those two you hover anywhere on the route until you see a button, then you can drag that button to where you want the route to be. The procedure is identical, including the hard to see blue route line. Neither of them is willing to change the route line to an easier to see color. They just have dumb excuses why it can't be done. I take a screen-shot and then do a color replacement, and change the blue line to red. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Attach Jars to Your Shelves When you have loads of small things to store in your shed or workshop, such as nails, screws, etc, here's a cool tip: Save jam jars and screw the lids to the underside of your workshop shelves. You can see what is in the jars and screw/unscrew the jar of your choice. Just make sure your shelf is secure and sturdy enough to take the extra weight. By Chickybiker After the log house I had finished building a few months earlier burned down two days before Christmas 1978, I spent a few years living in a wall tent in the Yukon, saving money and building a new house. In that wall tent I used the same trick with the jars, except I screwed the lids to a 4x4, with a sturdy screw in each end, resting in a clothes hanger loop. Don't use just any jar, make sure they are all the same size so that any jar fits into any lid, because you are bound to re-organize them for different projects. Have FUN!

A mother had three very active boys. One summer evening, she was playing cops and robbers in the back yard after dinner. One of the boys "shot" his mother and yelled, "Bang! You're dead!" She slumped to the ground and when she didn't get up right away, a neighbor ran over to see if she had been hurt in the fall. When the neighbor bent over, the overworked mother opened one eye and said, "Shhh. Don't give me away. It's the only chance I've had to rest all day."
