My mom has a lead foot, so I was not surprised when a state trooper pulled us over as we were speeding through Georgia. Hoping to get off with a warning, Mom tried to appear shocked when the trooper walked up to the car. "I have never been stopped like this before," she said to the officer. "What do they usually do, ma'am," he asked, "shoot you down?"

Thanks to Kati for this story: A canibal was walking through the jungle and came upon a restaurant opened by a fellow canibal. Feeling hungry, he sat down and looked over the menu. Broiled Missionary: $10.00 Fried Explorer: $15.00 Baked Politician: $100.00. The canibal called the waiter over and asked, "Why such a price difference for the politician?" The cook replied: "Have you ever tried to clean one?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Crystal Greer Brooks, 33, Kingsport, Tennessee Jailed for Repeatedly hitting boyfriend with his truck Reported by The Smoking Gun After an evening out drinking, a Tennessee woman became so angry with her live-in boyfriend for failing to make a McDonald’s pit stop that she struck him three times with his own vehicle. Crystal Greer Brooks, 33, Santiago Hernandez, 41, and a second man were traveling in Hernandez’s truck early Thursday morning when Brooks got mad because “they didn’t stop at McDonald’s,” according to a Kingsport Police Department report. Brooks demanded that Hernandez pull over. When he complied, Brooks licked him out of his truck, replaced him in the driver’s seat of the Chevrolet S-10. While Hernandez was standing in front of the truck, Brooks drove into him, knocking the father of her child to the ground. She then “pulled forward and struck him 2 more times with the truck,” police charge. A responding officer noted that Hernandez had abrasions on his arm and back, and his “clothing appeared torn, consistent with being dragged on the pavement.” Brooks denied plowing into Hernandez, claiming that he had actually jumped on the truck’s hood. Seen in the above booking photo, Brooks was arrested for aggravated assault and booked into the Sullivan County jail, where she remains in custody. Drunk driving charges may be added. Tech Support Pits From: Gene Re: W7 Slow-Down Dear Webby, I enjoy your letter every day except when you go to get your eyes pierced! My problem is with my laptop running W7 professional. It has gotten very slow in all operations and when I open Disk cleaner it runs for a short time and then says memory dump error. I am stumped as to where to go. I have run crap cleaner- no help. Where can I go from here? Thanks for your input Gene R. Dear Gene That is very common, and contrary to popular opinion, not Microsoft trying to make you feel sorry for not buying extra copies of XP, when they were still available. And no, they are not trying to chase you to W8.1 either. That has even worse problems. The solution is actually surprisingly simple. Close all not currently in use web pages, especially if they have Adobe Flash on it. Yes, I know, bookmarks are often unreliable, and the temptation to leave tabs open, if you think, you might have more time to study those pages later, is very great. Just open a spreadsheet or NoteTab, and paste the URL in there, and maybe even add some comments. The sad fact is that if your W7 is updated to the minute, and if your Adobe Flash is updated too, then you either have to put up with a slow klunker acting like you were on a really sad hillbilly fence wire dial-up, or reboot every 4 hours if you use Internet Explorer or every 5 hours on FireFox, if you have a few tabs with flash on it open. If you leave a tab with flash on it run overnight, then in the morning the machine will be disgustingly slow. A lot of stuff uses flash nowadays, often in nuisance ads on the side. If something starts making noise on it's own, then most likely it is flash. Sometimes pages, especially news pages, are designed to be wider than your screen, and have ads out there in unseen nowhere-land. Sure, when Google catches them, they will be punished, but some bozos keep trying that stupid stunt anyway. If you her noise and don't see the ad, that is making it, shrink your page with CTRL + Scroll Wheel, and you will see it. Paste the URL of that page into your log, and kill it. You will be surprised at how fast your machine will be, and how long you can run it without rebooting. It will act just like it did until about half a year ago, when rebooting once a month was recommended, but not really necessary. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing Blankets I've lived in several places with limited storage. To save room when it came time to remove blankets or place a lighter weight bedspread/comforter, I merely place them on the bed and then put the sheets on over them. It also helps making the bed more comfy. By Diane A. Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
The new manager walks into his office and, while settling into his new desk, finds 4 envelopes. On one he finds the words "open me first," and the other three are numbered 1 to 3. He opens the first envelope and finds a letter from his predecessor saying: "These three envelopes will save you a world of trouble. In case of emergency, please open these envelopes in sequential order; envelope one first, envelope two second, and envelope three third." The manager shrugs, puts the envelopes back, and forgets about them. Six months later, the workers go on strike. The company closes, and is losing money fast. After a long night negotiating with the union, he remembers the 3 envelopes. So he opens the first one and it says: "Blame me, your predecessor for everything". Wonderful idea he thinks, and indeed it works and the crisis comes to its end. His job is saved, and everybody's happy. A few years later, another strike hits. He goes to the drawer and opens the second envelope. It reads, "Blame the government for everything". It works like a charm, and he breathes a sigh of relief as his job is, once again, saved. A year later the workers declare another strike. The manager goes directly to the third envelope and it reads, "Prepare 4 new envelopes"

An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%. The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, "Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again." The gentleman replied, "Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!"
