>From Davie The supermarket had a sale on boneless chicken breasts. I intended to stock up. At the store, however, I was disappointed to find only a few skimpy prepackaged portions of the poultry, so I complained to the butcher lady. "Don't worry," she said, "I'll pack some more trays and have them ready for you by the time you finish shopping." Several aisles later, I heard the lady butcher's voice boom over the public-address system: "Will the gentleman who wanted bigger breasts please meet me at the back of the store."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Golba, 55, Riverside Illinois Jailed After Passing Out Drunk On Top Of Mother, Trapping Her For Hours Reported by The Weekly vice Robert Golba, a 55-year-old Riverside drunk, was jailed Thursday after he passed out drunk on top of his mother - pinning her to the floor for hours. According to Riverside Police, Golba became intoxicated and then passed out on top of his 81-year-old mother. The victim remained trapped under her son for several hours before she was able to get relatives to call police. When officers arrived on the scene, they found the victim still lying on the kitchen floor with her legs entwined with her son's legs as he slept. Investigators say Golba was extremely combative when officers woke him up and took him into custody. According to an order of protection against him, he was not allowed to be inside the residence while under the influence of drugs or alcohol. The victim was taken to Loyola University Medical Center, where doctors told her that her hip was broken in three places and required surgery. Golba was taken to McNeal Hospital to be treated for alcohol poisoning. He was charged with one count of felony violation of order of protection. Tech Support Pits From: Sharon Re: USB cables connected Dear Webby, Thanks for the fun letter today. The pic was very nice. You do come up with some beautiful pics. I finally did invest in a digital camera. Have just begun to read the book. I have 2 questions. 1) Would it be ok to connect the usb cable to the pc & leave it plugged in even when not connected to the camera? My connection is at the base of the pc which is on the floor & it is sometimes difficult to get down to connect it. 2) I haven't tried sending the pic to the pc yet so I can email them to family & friends but am curious as to what size would good to send. Some pics I have received have are so big they seem to take so long to download. Any size suggestions? Thanks so much for your help. This will be a new experience for me. Sharon Dear Sharon Dear Sharon Yes, sure you can leave the cable plugged into the PC. Just put the open end into a cup, in case any chips drip out. Just kidding about anything dripping out, but it's a good idea to put the open end into an empty bud vase or a pencil cup or anything that will securely hold it on the desk. If it falls down on the floor and you drive over the cable end with your chair, the cable is most likely ruined. The best size for mailing pictures is the size I use in the Humor Letter: 600 pixels wide. You can always tell them that, if they want a bigger size for printing it out, to specify what size they want. If they are not going to print it out, then there is no need to slow down the Internet with 3 acre pictures. Once you have a web site, then you can use the same trick as what I use, email a small pictrue with a click-through link to a bigger one. Have FUN! DearWebby

In front of a delicatessen, an art connoisseur noticed a mangy little kitten lapping up milk from a saucer. The saucer, he realized with a start, was a rare and precious piece of pottery. He strolled into the store and offered two dollars for the cat. "It's not for sale," said the proprietor. "Look," said the collector, "that cat is dirty and undesirable, but I'm eccentric. I like cats that way. I'll raise my offer to fifty dollars." "It's a deal," said the proprietor, and pocketed the fifty on the spot. "For that sum I'm sure you won't mind throwing in the saucer," said the connoisseur. "The kitten seems so happy drinking from it." "Nothing doing," said the proprietor firmly as he swiftly grabbed the saucer and put it into the sink. "That's my lucky saucer. From that saucer, so far this week I've sold 34 stray cats."

A dinner speaker was in such a hurry to get to his engagement that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth. Turning to the man next to him he said, "I forgot my teeth!" The man said, "No problem." With that he reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of false teeth. "Try these," he said. The speaker tried them. "Thanks, but they're too loose," he said. The man then said, "I have another pair...try these." The speaker tried them and responded, "Too tight." The man was not taken back at all. He then said, "I have one more pair... try them." The speaker said, "They fit perfectly!" With that he ate his meal and gave his address. After the dinner meeting was over, the speaker went over to thank the man who had helped him. "I want to thank you for coming to my aid. Where is your office? I've been looking for a good dentist." The man replied, "Oh I'm not a dentist. I work at the morgue.."
