The full moon a few days ago reminded me of this story: I gaze at the brilliant moon. The same one, I think to myself, at which Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato gazed. Suddenly, I imagine they appear beside me. I tell Socrates about the national debate over one's right to die and wonder at the constancy of the human condition. I tell Plato that I live in the country that has come closest to Utopia, and backed away from it, and I show him a copy of the Constitution and the way the courts and the politicians hacked it to pieces. I tell Aristotle that we have found many more than four basic elements and I show him a periodic table. Then I get a box of kitchen matches and strike one. They gasp with wonder. We spend the rest of the night lighting farts.
On the border of Kentucky and Tennessee there's a small forest. Half of the forest belongs to a Kentucky farmer, while the other half belongs to a Tennessee man. One day, while out for a walk in the woods, the Tennessee man comes across a wolf caught in a trap. He rushes back to his house and calls his Kentucky neighbor. "There's one of your wolves caught in a trap on my side of the forest." "How do you know it's one of *our* wolves?" the Kentucky farmer asked. "Well," the Tennessee man replied, "he's already chewed off three of his legs and he's still trapped." ----------- Feel free to substitute your favorite states/provinces.

Anyone who's ever ridden in a cab in Washington DC knows they're some of the world's most brazen drivers. Oddly enough though, their current accident rate isn't all that bad. I asked one of the drivers one day the reason for that. "Easy," he said. "all the really bad drivers are dead now."

Tech Support Pits From: Beverly Re: Weeding out the fonts Dear Webby, If anyone would know the answer to this, it will be you. I use Windows XP and was just wondering. . . . . . . . Is there anyway to move unused fonts to another folder to get them out of the way? I have tried to drag and drop them and copy/cut and paste them, but nothing works. The drop down menu says I can delete them, but I really don't want to do that because I might use them someday. But right now, I seem to have so many that I don't use on a regular basis that I see no need for them to be in the drop down menu. Thanks for the great Humor Letter and many tips! Beverly Dear Beverly Go into Control Panel Fonts and SHIFT-DRAG the fonts, that you don't want any more, into some other folder. It helps if you make a new folder beforehand and name it SpareFonts. Moving those spare fonts in there normally takes them out of the font list. You may have to restart the application that uses the fonts to clear it's cached font list. Have FUN! DearWebby

One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her small boy into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room." A long silence was broken at last by his shaking little voice: "The big sissy."

Andy wants a job as a signalman on the railways. He is told to meet the inspector at the signal box. The inspector puts this question to him: "What would you do if you realised that two trains were heading for each other on the same track?" Andy says, "I would switch the points for one of the trains." "What if the lever broke?" asked the inspector. "Then I'd dash down out of the signal box," said Andy, "and I'd use the manual lever over there." "What if that had been struck by lightning?" "Then," Andy continues, "I'd run back into the signal box and phone the next signal box." "What if the phone was engaged?" "Well in that case," persevered Andy, "I'd rush down out of the box and use the public emergency phone at the level crossing up there." "What if that was vandalised?" "Oh well then I'd run into the village and get my uncle Tony." This puzzles the inspector, so he asks, "Why would you do that?" Came the answer, "Because his wife, my sister, keeps saying his feet smell so bad, the stench could stop a train!"
