Reverend Smith, a respected church leader, arrived in a large city to deliver a series of speeches. At a banquet the first evening, he noticed some reporters in the audience. Because he wanted to use some of the stories he told that night in his speeches the next day, he asked the reporters to omit them from their articles. One article that came out the next day, written by a cub reporter, concluded with this line: "Reverend Smith also told a number of stories that cannot be printed."
The old man had died. A wonderful funeral was in progress and the country preacher talked at length of the good traits of the deceased, what an honest man he was, and what a loving husband and kind father he was. Finally, the widow leaned over and whispered to one of her children, "Go up there and take a look in the coffin and see if we're at the right funeral."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Robert Vick, 42, Lexington, Kentucky Kentucky jail breaker, who got so cold, that he asked to be let inside again. Robert Vick, a 42-year-old inmate who escaped from Blackburn Correctional Complex in Lexington, turned himself back in less than 48 hours later when he decided jail was better than freezing to death. According to police, Vick escaped from a minimum security facility in Lexington Sunday, however, the plan quickly backfired when he encountered an unexpected dose of cold weather. Local wind chill temperatures were 20 degrees below zero Monday in Lexington, according to weather reports. Vick would have been dressed in prison issued khaki pants, a hirt and a jacket, according to Department of Correction spokesperson, Lisa Lamb. As temperatures dropped between Sunday and Tuesday morning, Vick reportedly walked into a motel and asked the clerk to call police. He reportedly told the clerk that he wanted to turn himself in because it was too cold outside. Arriving officers called in paramedics to check Vick out before he was returned to Blackburn, said Lexington police spokesperson Sherelle Roberts "This was definitely of his own volition," said Roberts. " It's cold out there, too cold to run around. I can understand why the suspect would turn himself in. Vick was serving a six-year sentence for burglary and criminal possession of a forged instrument when he escaped.

Daily tip from Strain Sugar from Cereal When you get to the end of the cereal box or bag, you'll see sugar or tiny particles that you don't want to eat. Take a strainer and dump the cereal into the strainer and shake around. The small parts and sugar will fall into the sink or garbage can. By lnygaard Poking some small holes into the bottom of the bag or box works quite well too. That way, if you ar not as far down the box as you thought, you don't have to try getting it back in there. Even easier is buying un-sugared cereal and adding whatever sweetener you are in the mood for in the amounts you want right on the plate, for example dark Demarara sugar. Have FUN!

A young man visiting a dude ranch wanted to be "Macho", and went out walking with one of the hired hands. Walking through the barnyard, the visitor tried starting a conversation: "Say, look at that big bunch of buffalos." The hired hand replied, "Not 'bunch' but 'herd'." "Heard what?" "Herd of buffalos." "Sure, I've heard of buffalos. There's a big bunch of 'em right over there." "Yep. You can go ride one of them for the afternoon."
