Today's International Bonehead Award goes to a Texas doctor, who had a Love triangle meltdown Details at International Bonehead Awards
A few readers asked about the Swedish Christmas goat, whether it is still standing and what is going on. "Jul Bocken" as he's called in Swedish, helps the Swedish type of Santa to deliver the gifts, to be put under the tree by the 24th of Dec.,as that's the time for the opening of the presents. The biggest of the Jul Bocken is in the town of Gavle. As of this writinig, the Gavlebocken is still standing tall, covered with a little bit of snow, and not even singed. In case you don't know, the Gavlebocken or Christmas Goat is located in Gavle, Sweden, and made from straw. Weight: 3.6 tonnes (8,000 lb) Height (horns): 13 metres (42.7 feet) Withers height: 7,6 metres (25 feet) Length: 7 metres (23 feet) The straw is delivered by Mackmyra Swedish Whisky. Every year, some vandals try to burn the goat down before Christmas. One year they even tried, unsuccessfully, to kidnap it with a helicopter. The struggle between the town and the goat burners is not really religious. Nobody really knows for sure whether the goat is the one, who pulled Thor's carriage, or is from the stable in Bethlehem, or both. And they don't really care. It is mostly just a race or competition between keeping the Christmas Goat alive till Christmas, versus burning it down. Usually the vandals win. Here is last year's fire: The live webcam of this year's Christmas Goat is at That picture is NOT the live web cam, just a screen shot I took from the live webcam, and a link to the live web cam. Bookmark it and check on the Christmas Goat now and then! Have FUN! DearWebby

Crime does not pay ... as well as politics. --- Alfred E. Newman If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the significance of a clean desk? --- Laurence J. Peter (1919 - 1988)
This woman wanted a face lift. The surgeon told her about a new procedure called "The Knob", where a small knob is placed on the top of a woman's head and can be turned to tighten up her skin to produce the effect of a brand new face lift. Of course, the woman wanted "The Knob." Over the course of the years, the woman tightened the knob, and the effects were wonderful, the woman remained young looking and vibrant. After fifteen years, the woman returned to the surgeon with two problems: "All these years, everything has been working just fine. I've had to turn the knob many times and I've always loved the results. But now I've developed two annoying problems: First, I have these terrible bags under my eyes and the knob won't get rid of them." The doctor looked at her closely and said, "Those aren't bags, those are your breasts." She said, "Well, I guess there's no point in asking about the goatee."

> Thanks to Sandie for this story: Southern Grandmother on the Witness Stand: Lawyers should never ask a Southern grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer. In a trail, a southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?" She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you, Wack-off Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you never will amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you" The lawyer was stunned! Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?" She again replied, "Why, yes, I do. I've known Brainless Bradley since he was a youngster too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife With three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know Brainless Bradley". The defense attorney almost died. The judge promptly asked both lawyers to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said, "If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to jail and personally throw away the key!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jeff Fleming, 53, Reno, Nevada Love Triangle Meltdown Leads To Doctor's Arrest A Texas doctor involved in a love triangle broke into the Houston home of a romantic rival and scrawled the words “Whore” and “Homewrecker” in red lipstick on a bathroom mirror, cops allege. Angela Siler-Fisher, 42, is facing misdemeanor harassment and trespassing charges stemming from her alleged break-in Sunday at the residence of Marcelle Mallery, a 35-year-old radiologist. Siler-Fisher (seen above) is a medical director at Houston’s Ben Taub General Hospital and teaches at the Baylor College of Medicine. Her husband Brandon, 43, is a radiologist. According to a criminal complaint, Brandon Fisher called Mallery to warn that his wife “was coming to her house.” Mallery told cops that she was in fear for herself and her children, so she fled the residence. Mallery told investigators that she received two phone calls from Siler-Fisher as she was en route to the home. Siler-Fisher, Mallery said, warned that she was "going to beat her fucking ass, whore” and “dislocate her vagina.” Surveillance videos revealed that Siler-Fisher entered Mallery’s home by “kicking in the doggy door.” Once inside the sprawling home, she wrote “Whore” and “Homewrecker” in red lipstick on a bathroom mirror. Pictured below, Mallery told police that Siler-Fischer texted her a photo showing Mallery’s bedroom. Police also report that Siler-Fisher left unused condoms on each step of a stairway inside Mallery’s home. Siler-Fisher is scheduled to be arraigned in Harris County District Court on December 11. Tech Support Pits From: many Re: Is Yahoo broken or dead? >From Crazyefa Been using yahoo email for years since 95. Don't use web interface much any more with mobile apps. >From Jorge Regarding Yahoo, recently they have taken to showing a message that my screen settings are below their recommended 1024 x 600 pixels: That's O.K (however my screen is set to 1152 x 852) It used to let me hit "continue" and then open the email site... But now it just freezes there; shows a quick flash of the first page, then goes back to the notice message... I have to use a special code (copy of a past Firefox code for the page) to get to see my yahoo email at all.... >From Randall I have used yahoo mail for a long while for gaming info and unimportant things. All else of my important emails i run thru my gmail account and have learned a long time ago that Yahoo mail is not reliable. Since going to gmail for my valued items, I have not missed a issue of your newsletter. And since yahoo has redone their appearance with the email I have noticed a lot more people are complaining about that too... etc. It sure looks like they want to force all the yahoos to stop using computers and to switch to mobile devices. Yahoo probably gets a kick-back from the carriers for every time you go to Yahoo with your mobile device. Well, there are plenty of alternatives, that you can upgrade to. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing Tar and Grease from Clothing For removing tar and grease from clothing, I first use some WD-40 and work it into the spot until it starts to break down. Then I use some cream-type hand cleaner (available at an auto-parts store) and rub that into the remaining spot. Then, if needed, I use a small bit of baby shampoo and warm water to remove anything that is left before tossing in the clothes washer. This has always worked with even the hardest roofing tars and auto grease stains. Good Luck! By Terence R. "Cream Type Handcleaner" is also sold at mot hardware stores as "Waterless Handcleaner". It gets stiff in the cold, but does not freeze, and does not burst the container, when it warms up. It's a good thing to have in your trunk in winter. Have FUN! DearWebby Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
Sad News There will be no Nativity Scene in Washington, DC this year! The Supreme Court has ruled that there cannot be a Nativity Scene in Washington, DC this Christmas season. This isn't for any religious reason, they simply have not been able to find three wise men and a virgin in the Nation's capitol. There was no problem, however, finding enough asses to fill the stable.

The passer-by says, "You are mistaken, I am Mexican" The man goes on and encounters another passer-by. "Thank you for having such a beautiful country here in Canada!"
