>From Tessa I overheard my father telling a family friend about my newly- assigned mission in the U.S. Coast Guard. I work on a cutter that escorts all cruise ships and international vessels under the bridges in California's Bay Area. But what my father told his friend was, "She's involved in some sort of escort service."
Flying to Los Angeles from San Francisco the other day, a passenger noticed that the "Fasten Seat Belts" sign was kept lit during the whole journey although the flight was a particularly smooth one. Just before landing, he asked the stewardess about it. "Well," she explained, "up front there are 17 University of California girls going to Los Angeles for the weekend. "In back, there are 25 Marine enlistees. What would you do?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Alexandra Westover, 21, West Boca, Floriduh Jailed After Shoesterbating The security director at an Illinois university allegedly ejaculated inside the shoe of a female coworker who told cops that she became suspicious after spotting him "buttoning his pants and fastening his belt" while leaving her office one recent evening. Timothy Margis, 39, was arrested last week and charged with public indecency and disorderly conduct in connection with the lewd act at Concordia University, according to a River Forest Police Department statement. The female employee told investigators that after Margis exited her office she discovered a “clear liquid” inside one of her shoes. Margis, seen above, reportedly copped to the February 10 workplace masturbation when questioned by cops. The woman told police that when she asked Margis why he had been in her office, he claimed to have been checking the space since it was left unlocked. Police noted that Margis and the victim were not involved in a relationship. Margis, free on $150 bail, has been fired from his job at Concordia, a Chicago-area school that describes itself as being “centered in the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Tech Support Pits From: Francis Re: What really are Codecs? Dear Webby, if I had a million years, I could probably read all the mostly contradictory information about what codecs are. What is the REAL story, in plain English? Thanks Francis Dear Francis Technically, a codec is a program that prepares video and/or musinc for transmission and then restores it for playback. There are a bunch of different codec programs, often including an enforced payment scheme. For example, if you buy music or movies online, it is usually encoded in some way, so that only YOU can enjoy it. They put a cookie onto your computer, that acts like a key and has the path to the codec (decryptor), that you paid for, There are also public codecs, that let Youtube or WMP play stuff, that is encrypted with that public codec. Some criminals claim that they can sell you a pack of codecs for certain games or porno movies. All it will cost you is your sould and control over your computer. Naturally they don't word it quite like that, but that is what their browser hijacker Trojan amounts to. Whenever you see "codec pack" or anything similar, get outa there FAST! You already do have all the codecs for all the legitimate stuff. Don't shop on the dark side with YOUR computer. Have FUN! DearWebby Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Microwave to Melt Bars of Soap I microwaved pieces of Dove and Lever together. Next time, I will not mix them, as the Dove melted faster and frothed up. By RhondaLouise Check out ThriftyFun's Blog
A little boy returning home from his first day at the new school said to his mother, "Mom, what's sex?" His mother, who believed in all the most modern educational theories, gave him a detailed explanation, covering all aspects of the tricky subject. When she had finished, the little lad produced an enrollment form which he had brought home from school and said, "Yes, I knew all that, but how am I going to get all that into this one little square?"

A young executive was leaving the office one evening when he found the CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand. "Listen," said the CEO, "this is important and my assistant has left. Can you make this thing work?" "Certainly", said the young man, flattered that the CEO had asked him for help. He turned the the machine on, inserted the paper and pressed the start button. "Excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine. "I need two copies of that."
>From Louise: ONE MORNING I was called to pick up my son at the school nurse's office. When I walked through the main entrance, I noticed a woman, curlers in her hair, wearing pajamas. "Why are you dressed like that?" I asked her. "I told my son," she explained, "that if he ever did anything to embarrass me, I would embarrass him back. He was caught cutting school. So now I've come to spend the day with him!"
