A pastor was giving the children's message during church. For this part of the service, he would gather all the children around him and give a brief lesson before dismissing them from children's church. On this particular Sunday, he was using squirrels for an object lesson on industry and preparation. He started out by saying, "I'm going to describe something, and I want you to raise your hand when you know what it is." The children nodded eagerly. "This thing lives in trees (pause) and eats nuts (pause)..." No hands went up. "And it is gray (pause) and has a long bushy tail (pause)..." The children were looking at each other, but still no hands raised. "And it jumps from branch to branch (pause) and chatters and flips its tail when it's excited (pause)..." Finally one little boy tentatively raised his hand. The pastor breathed a sigh of relief and called on him. "Well," said the boy, "I *know* the answer must be Jesus ... but it sure sounds like a squirrel to me!"
Thanks to Sandie for bringing back this ancient fable: An old man, a boy & a donkey were going to town. The boy rode on the donkey & the old man walked. As they went along they passed some people who remarked it was a shame the old man was walking and the boy was riding. The man and boy thought maybe the critics were right, so they changed positions. Then, later, they passed some people who remarked, "What a shame, he makes that little boy walk." So they then decided they'd both walk! Soon they passed some more people who thought they were stupid to walk when they had a decent donkey to ride. So, they both rode the donkey. Now they passed some people who shamed them by saying how awful to put such a load on a poor donkey. The boy and man figured they were probably right, so they decide to carry the donkey. As they crossed the bridge, they lost their grip on the animal & he fell into the river and drowned. The moral of the story? If you try to please everyone, you might as well... Kiss your ass goodbye!

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Charlene Ellet, 25, Porter, Texas Bimbo, who was jailed for incest last week, and now again for choking her husband. Reported by the Weekly Vice Charlene Ellet, the 25-year-old Texas woman who was charged with having a sexual relationship with her own brother just a few days ago, is back in jail on new charges. This time for choking her husband. According to the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office, deputies were dispatched to a motel room that was shared by Charlene and her husband after her release from jail on March 3. Investigators say the couple was arguing over a cell phone when Ellet reportedly placed her hands on his neck and choked him. The victim, whose name was not released, had scratches and redness on his neck and had a hard time talking due to swelling around his throat, said Lt. Brady Fitzgerald of the Sheriff's Office. "She reportedly had put him in a choke hold," said Fitzgerald. We've identified an unnamed husband as Justin Swartout, who links to Ellet and Beck on his Facebook and announced his marriage to "Riley" on his Facebook profile on January 8. He previously referred to her as "charlene" on a Facebook post a few months earlier. Charlene Ellet was arrested just days earlier after she had initially been detained for shoplifting inside a Porter Walmart. The investigation took a wild turn when Ellet's brother, Cameron Beck, came to the store to look for Ellet with Ellet's twin daughters in tow. When deputies arrived at the store, they searched Beck's car and found a burnt lightbulb and a cut pen which tested positive for crystal meth. At some point during the investigation, Ellet told deputies that Beck came looking for her because he was her brother. The pair was arrested, transported to jail and placed into adjoining cells. While deputies worked to complete paperwork required for the booking process, Ellet and Beck were caught kissing each other on the lips through the bars of their jail cells. A deputy who saw the siblings kissing separated the pair and interviewed Ellet individually about what had just transpired. Ellet told deputies that she and Beck shared the same mother, but had different fathers. She also stated that she had been writing to Beck while he was in prison until he was released last November. She went on to say that she and Beck had been staying in a motel with her twin daughters and that all four of them slept in the same bed. She also admitted to being involved in a sexual relationship with her brother since his release from prison. When deputies questioned Ellet about what the kids were seeing, she explained that she and Beck had placed a partition in the room and that the children would stay on the other side of the partition when she and Beck engaged in intercourse. Other times, she and Beck would just go to the bathroom to have sex. Ellet and Beck were booked into the Montgomery County Jail and charged with possession of a controlled substance and prohibited sexual conduct. Ellet was additionally issued a citation for shoplifting under $50. Ellet now faces new charges in the assault of her husband. She remains held in lieu of $50,000. Tech Support Pits From: Bill Re: McAfee slowing down the computer Dear Webby, I became concerned that Microsoft will no longer update "Microsoft Essentials", so I paid for and downloaded McAfee "Total Protection" yesterday from your website. I believe that you recommend this antivirus highly. Since I installed this program, my XP machine has become very sluggish.... almost as bad as when I installed Norton. Any ideas on how I can get my computer back up to speed without uninstalling McAfee? Thanks. Bill Dear Bill Most likely McAfee is busy scanning all your drives. During the scan things slow down. Once the scan has been completed, it will be normal speed again. You can schedule the scan to run at a time, when it doesn't bother you. I know it is a major nuisance when that slowdown happens, and with my long work hours, I can't really escape it. With todays necessity for security, thought, that nuisance is not avoidable. Have FUN!

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Check the Price at the Pump Don't trust the price on the sign at your local gas station. Always double-check that the price matches that on the pump you're about to use. Hubby recently dashed into a local station where the sign read $3.03/gal. Much to our horror, and after he'd pumped his gas, he looked at the price on the pump. It said $3.89. Needless to say, we won't be going there again! I made hubby confirm the price for me before he pumped a single drop, last time I was with him for a fueling stop.

A barber runs out of his shop and down to the nearest corner where a policeman is standing. "Officer," he asks, have you seen a man run by here in the last few minutes?" "No I haven't. What's the problem?" "The lousy cheat ran out of my shop without paying me!" "Does this fellow have any distinguishing features?" the officer asks. "Well, yes," the barber replies. "He's carrying one of his ears in his left hand."

Darryl and Harold were in a mental institution. The place had an unusual annual contest, picking two of the best patients and giving them two questions. If they got them correct, they were deemed cured and free to go. Darryl was called into the doctor's office first and asked if he understood that he'd be free if he answered the questions correctly. Darryl said "yes" and the doctor proceeded. "Darryl, what would happen if I poked out one of your eyes?" Darryl said, "I'd be half blind." "That's correct. What if I poked out both eyes?" "I'd be completely blind." The doctor stood up, shook Darryl's hand, and told him he was free to go. On Darryl's way out, as the doctor filled out the paperwork, Darryl mentioned the exam to Harold, who was seated in the waiting room. He told him what questions were going to be asked and gave him the answers. So Harold went into the doctor's office when he was called. The doctor went thru the formalities and then asked, "What would happen if I cut off one of your ears?" Remembering what Darryl had told him, he answered, "I'd be half blind." The doctor looked a little puzzled, but went on. "What if I cut off the other ear?" "I'd be completely blind," Harold answered." "Harold, can you explain how you'd be blind?" "My hat would fall down over my eyes."
A woman was driving down the highway about 75 miles an hour, when she noticed a motorcycle policeman following her. Instead of slowing down, she picked up speed. When she looked back again, their were two motorcycles following her. She shot up to 90 miles. The next time she looked around, there were three cops following her. Suddenly, she spotted a gas station looming ahead. She screeched to a stop and ran into the ladies' room. Ten minutes later, she innocently walked out. The three cops were standing there waiting for her. Without batting an eye, she said coyly, "I'll bet none of you thought I would make it."
