The world's as ugly as sin, and almost as delightful --- Frederick Locker-Lampson Unfortunately sometimes one can't do what one thinks is right without making someone else unhappy. --- W. Somerset Maugham (1874 - 1965),
A man answered his doorbell and greeted a friend who walked in followed by a very large dog. The dog immediately jumped up on the sofa with his muddy feet and proceeded to knock over a lamp and chew on the cushions. The outraged householder began to scold his friend, "Don't you think you should train your dog a little better?" "My dog?" exclaimed the friend, "I thought it was your dog!"

Bob has been playing golf for years, and he has the finest equipment, but his technique has never improved a bit. As his friend watched, he teed up at the first hole and promptly drove a brand-new ball into the woods. On the second hole, he drove another new ball into a lake. On the third, he lost a new ball in another part of the woods. "Why don't you use an old ball?" his friend asked. Bob replied: "Where do you buy old balls?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gabrell Marie Melton, 38, and Eugene Brimzy III, 21 Booze Dumpers Reported by Walter: Connecticut highway cleanup crews had nothing to celebrate Wednesday when a tractor trailer crashed, spilling a mountain of pricey champagne. Around 2:15pm, the truck tipped over after smashing into a Department of Transportation vehicle and dumping hundreds of cases of Veuve Clicquot across I-395. The bright yellow cases, valued at $500 each, held up travelers in Griswold well into the evening as crews scrambled to clean up the bubbly mess. Rear-Ending a DOT truck with flashing lights, in a construction zone, and destroying a semi and the load, could be considered a CLM (Carreer Limiting Move) Meanwhile in Canada, reported by Garry: Beer truck spills load on Manitoba highway There was trouble brewing on a Manitoba highway on Wednesday when a beer truck spilled its load. It happened just after 9 a.m. on Highway 10 near Flin Flon. The driver of the semi, who was the sole occupant of the vehicle, was taken to hospital but released shortly afterwards. Highway 10 was closed while crews cleaned up the sudsy mess but has now open again. Tech Support Pits From: Carolyn Re: SnipURL on FB Dear Webby Why can't I use SnipURL to shorten some long URLs on FaceBook? Some idiots at some papers put the entire first paragraph of a story into the URL, hoping that Google will stop ignoring them, but FaceBook has a problem with that, and when I use SnipURL to shorten the URL, then FaceBook claims that is a bad site. What is going on? Carolyn Dear Carolyn Just a routine FB Admin malfunction. Once upon a time, long, long ago, somebody apparently used SnipURL to disguise a porno site or somthing like that, and when somebody at FB found out about that, they blocked ALL Urls shortened by SnipURL henceforth and foreverafter. That's all. No big mystery or technical issue. Just email me the long URL, and the short nickname you want, and I'll make you a short one. For example, I can shorten: "http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2425496/Incredible-moment-18-wheeler-dumps-hundreds-cases-CHAMPAGNE-worth-500-highway-halts-traffic-hours.html" to http://jos.org/dumper FaceBook won't object to that.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Store Corn Cob Holders on Dry Sponge I read about a neat way to keep up with corn on the cob holders that I thought I'd pass along the tip. After they are washed, stick them into a clean dry sponge until the next use. By notwrong Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A cop walking his usual beat sees an old man pulling a box on a leash, down a busy street. "Poor man," the cop thinks to himself. "I'd better go humor him." "That' a nice dog you got there," says the cop to the old man. "It isn't a dog, it's a box," replies the old man. "Oh, I'm sorry," says the policeman, "I thought you were a bit touched." The old man walks past the cop, then turns to his box, and says, "We sure fooled him that time, didn't we, Rover?"

An expert on whales was telling friends about some of the unusual findings he had made. "For instance," he said, "some whales can communicate at a distance of 300 miles." "What on earth would one whale say to another 300 miles away?" asked a sarcastic member of the group. "I'm not absolutely sure," answered the expert, "but it sounds something like: "Heeeeeeey! Can you hear me nowwww!?!'"
