I was working in a scrap yard during summer vacation at engineering university. I used to work repairing construction equipment. One afternoon, I was taking apart a piling hammer that had some very large bolts holding it together. One of the nuts had corroded on to the bolt; to free it I started heating the nut with an oxy-acetylene torch. As I was doing this, one of the dimmest apprentices I have ever known came along. He asked me what I was doing. I patiently explained that if I heated the nut it would grow larger and release its grip on the bolt so I could then remove it. "So things get larger when they get hot, do they?" he asked. Suddenly, an idea flashed into my mind. "Yes," I said, "that's why days are longer in summer and shorter in winter." There was a long pause, then his face cleared. "You know, I always wondered about that," he said.
This lady is giving a party for her granddaughter, and has gone all out. She had a caterer, band, and a hired clown. Just before the party starts, two bums show up looking for a handout. Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman tells them that they can get a meal if they will chop some wood out back. Gratefully, they head to the rear of the house. Guests arrive, and all is going well with the children having a wonderful time. But the clown has not shown up, and finally, the clown calls to report that he is stuck in traffic, and will probably not make the party at all. The woman is very disappointed and unsuccessfully tries to entertain the children herself. She happens to look out the window and sees one of the bums doing cartwheels across the lawn. She watches in awe as he swings from tree branches, does midair flips, and leaps high in the air. She speaks to the other bum and says, "What your friend is doing is absolutely marvellous. I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party? I would pay him $50!" The bum replies, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him. "HEY Neil! FOR $50, WOULD YOU CHOP OFF ANOTHER TOE?"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Tyt'ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson, 17, Fayetteville, N.C. Fayetteville teen poisoned grandma's collards over cellphone suspension A Fayetteville teen was arrested Thursday and accused of spiking her grandmother's Easter dinner with insecticide, according to an arrest warrant. Tyt'ana Lisa-Nicole Johnson, 17, of 206 Harrison St., was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder. She was being held Friday in the Cumberland County jail under a $500,000 bond. According to a warrant, Johnson tried to kill Gaylon Moody on Sunday by pouring insecticide and termite killer into a pot of collard greens cooking on the stove, knowing that Moody planned to eat them. Moody said it was payback after she confiscated her granddaughter's cellphone for a week. "I just couldn’t understand it," Moody said Friday. "Over a cellphone, you want to kill somebody?" She said she cooked her collard greens and the rest of dinner before heading off to church for Easter services. Later, she and friend Clifton Evans sat down to eat. "About an hour and a half later, we started getting sick," she said. "My fingers started feeling numb, (and it spread to) my chest, my face, my mouth." They tried to drive to Cape Fear Valley Medical Center but weren't able to. "We were staggering like we were intoxicated, but neither one of us drank," she said. "You couldn’t smell it. You couldn’t taste it," Evans said. "We couldn’t even stand up we were so weak." A friend of Moody's who overheard Johnson making suspicious comments about sickening her grandmother rushed over and drove Moody and Evans to the hospital, where they were treated and spent the night. On Wednesday, Moody said, she found an empty pesticide bottle in a cabinet at home, and she and Evans confronted her granddaughter, who confessed to the poisoning. "She said, 'Mr. Evans, I didn’t mean to make you sick. I was trying to get back at grandma,'" Evans said. "They got her locked up, but she needs help. Seriously, something's wrong with her. People don’t do that over cellphones." Tech Support Pits From: R Re: Earthlink blocking newsletters? Dear Webby Is Earthlink blocking newsletters? None of them come through any more. What is going on? R Dear R Most likely you told Earthlink to use their totally idiotic anti-spam program, that requires everybody, who wants to send mail to you, to fill out their form and get onto THEIR mailing list. Naturally, newsletters are too smart for that crap and don't fall for it. Absolutely NO newsletter will fall for that. Actually,they can't. Newsletter programs send out the newsletters, but have no ability to fill forms. You have to either turn that moron-malfunction OFF, or figure a way to whitelist the sender addresses of all the newsletters,that you are subscribed to. I would recommend that you do that soonest. Most newsletters will dump you,if they get 3 of those dumb auto-responses. Have FUN! DearWebby

Morris had just reached the airport in the nick of time to catch the plane for their two-week's vacation in France. "I wish we'd brought the refrigerator with us," said Morris. "What on earth for?" asked the wife. "I've left our airline tickets on it."
Jill and John boarded a crowded subway car on their way home to Brooklyn. Standing next to them was a man who'd clearly had a liquid lunch. When the doors opened at the next station, the man tumbled out and landed flat on his back. John rushed to his side, picked him up, and hauled him back into the car. As the train was pulling away, the man mumbled to Jill and John, "That wasch my schtop. I alwaysch fall out there!"
