The greatest of faults, I should say, is to be conscious of none. --- Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881)
Henry Kissinger once asked Chou En-Lai to theorize on what might have happened if Nikita Khrushchev had been assassinated instead of John F. Kennedy. After a moment's thought, Chou En-Lai answered: "I don't believe Mr. Onassis would have married Mrs. Khrushchev."

A man asked for a divorce. The judge asked him why he wanted a divorce. He replied, that he lived in a Two Story House. The Judge replied, "What kind of a reason is that? What is the big deal about a two story house?" The man answers, "Well Judge, one story is: 'I have a headache' and the other story is 'It's that time of the month.'" "Granted."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Jennifer Ann Lee, 29, Tampa, Floriduh Jailed for huffing whippets with child in car A Florida mom was nonchalant when cops questioned her about her alleged use of "whippets" in her car while her 1-year-old child was in the back seat. Jennifer Ann Lee, 29, passed out after huffing the contents of one of the small containers, which usually contain nitrous oxide, police told The Tampa Tribune. A passerby in Bradenton noticed Lee asleep at the wheel at an intersection, and offered to drive her to a safe location, WTSP reports. Lee agreed. The witness also called a friend of Lee's to check on her, and that friend ended up calling police. He reportedly told officers that Lee was "doing whippets" in front of him. When officers arrived, they reportedly found small canisters at the suspect's feet and in her seat. A subsequent search revealed 20 more of the canisters. The child was unharmed. Police say she admitted to doing whippets and falling asleep at the wheel. She allegedly told them, "I was tired and it happens." She was uncooperative when they arrested her. She was charged with felony child neglect, My Fox Tampa Bay reports. -------- Whippets can be the huff of Nitrous Oxide (Laughing gas) in Whipped Cream cans, but they can also be the gas cartridges for refillable whipped cream makers. Since she actually passed out, she most likely was using the cartridges. They can be "popped" with a thumbtack. Huffing laughing gas can be fun at a stag party, especially when alternated with huffs of helium to produce a Donald Duck voice, but should never be done without supervision, and especially not in a vehicle! Tech Support Pits From: Beverly Re: Mail Size Restrictions Hi Dear Webby, I have a problem. The server that my ISP uses has restricted the size of each email that we can receive and now I am having trouble receiving any email with pictures. I wondered if you can give me a referral to Gmail? The Service Tech from my ISP said he thought you could receive any size email through it, and I have read several times in the Humor Letter where you speak pretty highly of it. I went to Google and read about it and really would like to try it. I hope you can help me. Thanks! Beverly M Dear Beverly Just go to http://gmail.com It will guide you through the sign-up. You don't need referrals any more. Yes, with Gmail there are no kindergarten limits. Just take your time to customize it to your liking, and you'll be quite happy with it. Also go into Settings, Filters, and get comfortable with making filters. Gmail has very strong spam filtering, and you have to exclude important stuff. For example, if I write about how to get rid of some malware, it will likely consider that to be evil spam and dump it into the Spam folder. Just make a filter to tell it that mail from humor@webby.com should never be put into SPAM. Do the same with the addresses of utility companies, banks, etc. You can even use Gmail with regular POP programs like Eudora or Outlook, not just with it's web interface. Have FUN! DearWebby

Peter decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up Peter's station wagon and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farm house and asked the attractive lady of the house if they could spend the night. "I'm recently widowed," she explained, "and I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house." "Not to worry," Peter said, "we'll be happy to sleep in the barn." Nine months later, Peter got a letter from the widow's attorney. He then went up to visit his friend Bob and said, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow at the farm we stayed at?" "Yes, I do." "Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and have sex with her?" "Yes, I have to admit that I did." "Did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name, and give her one of MY business cards?" Bob's face turned red and he said, "Yeah, I'm afraid I did." "Well, thanks! She just died and left me everything!"

Despite warnings from his guide, an American skiing in Swit- zerland got separated from his group and fell into a deep crevasse. Several hours later, a rescue party found the hole, and to reassure the stranded skier shouted down to him, "We're from the Red Cross" "Sorry," the imperturbable American echoed back, "I already gave at the office!"
Elmer Fudd and his buddy Sam are out in the woods hunting wascally wabbits...when suddenly, Sam grabs his chest and falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing; his eyes are rolled back in his head. Elmer whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator, "I tink Sam is dead! What should I do?" The operator, in a calm, soothing voice says, "Just take it easy and follow my instructions. First, let's make sure he's actually dead." A silence follows...and then a shot is heard. Elmer's voice comes back on the line: "Okay...now what?
