>From Joe At his 103rd birthday party, my grandfather was asked if he planned to be around for his 104th. "I certainly do," he replied. "Statistics show that very few people die between the ages of 103 and 104."
A burglar broke into a house one night. He shined his flashlight around, looking for valuables. When he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange, disembodied voice echoed from the dark saying, "Jesus is watching you." He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, and then clicked the light on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you." Freaked out, he shined his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot. "Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm just trying to warn you." The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who in the world are you?" "Moses," replied the bird. "Moses?" the burglar laughed . "What kind of idiot would name a bird Moses?" "The kind of idiot that would name a Rottweiler Jesus."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Rodney Barnes, New Smyrna Beach, Florida P.E. Teacher Stole $950 From Student Lockers Investigators say physical education teacher Rodney Barnes stole $950 from students in the boy's locker room at New Smyrna Beach High School in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. Authorities first began investigating the locker room thefts in April when students reported cash missing from their wallets. Volusia County deputies were unable to put surveillance cameras in the locker room, so they stashed $141 worth of decoy money, covered with an invisible ultralight powder, in a student's wallet, according to the Associated Press. Although "Operation Sticky Fingers" was run numerous times in April, Monday was the first time that a student helping with the sting finally noticed missing money. That same day, deputies checked the hands of students and faculty using an ultraviolet light and the powder allegedly showed up on Barnes' hands. Upon questioning, Barnes admitted to taking a $50 bill from the studentĺs wallet and admitted to several other thefts totaling $170, cops say. Barnes has been accused of mishandling student money in the money in the past. According to employment records obtained by the Daytona Beach News-Journal, Barnes was reprimanded in September, 2012, for collecting $1,200 from students for P.E. uniforms without turning in the money. Barnes was charged with grand theft and burglary, and released on $3,000 bail on Tuesday. He resigned from his job on Wednesday, according to the Volusia County Sheriff's Office. Tech Support Pits From: Patricia Re: Gmail sniveling about the vote button Hello dearwebby, for the last three days I have had a sign at the top of the letter I receive from you, saying this might be spam or some dreadful thing. ┬ This not true because I always get the same letter as before. ┬ I wonder if others who receive your letter are getting the same warning. Thanks for your letter, pictures and history lesson. Your faithful reader Patricia Dear Patricia That's just some sniveling ninnies at Gmail getting too overprotective. Apparently they get all paranoid about the Ezinefinder vote button, which incidentally is unchanged since about 1998. Yes, I agree, that is quite pathetic. Obviously somebody, who has not progressed from programming their washing machine, got promoted into a spot at Google, where they can be a real nuisance. Quite a few people complained about that. I am also subscribed with my Gmail address, still from the days when Gmail was new and a bit erratic, but because I made a filter to exclude the Humor Letter from their thilly mistakes, I don't get that red warning about the totally harmless vote button. You can either write to them and tell them to fix their mistake, or make a filter. I wrote to them about it, but I don't really expect a reply. Easiest and fastest is probably to make a filter. If you are not familiar with making filters, don't be shy! Tell me, and I will make that tomorrow's tech tip. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Use All the Lotion in a Tube When you can't squeeze any more lotion out of a plastic tube, save what is left inside by cutting the tube so you can dip it out with your finger. I trim the tube so the top will fit over the bottom and this keeps it from drying out. It works great for me. By Litter Gitter [95] Check out ThriftyFun's Blog

Jarhead Math The Korean War, in which the Marine Corps fought and won some of its most brutal battles, was not without its gallows humor. During one such conflict a ROK (Republic of Korea) Commander, whose unit was fighting along with the Marines, called legendary Marine General Chesty Puller, to report a major Chinese attack in his sector. "How many Chinese are attacking you?" asked Puller. "Many, many, many many, many Chinese!" replied the excited Korean Officer. General Puller asked for another count and got the same answer, "Many, many, many, many Chinese!" "Dammit!" swore Puller, "Put my Marine Liaison Officer on the radio." In a minute, an American voice came over the air: "Yes Sir?" "Lieutenant," growled Chesty, "Exactly how many Chinese you got up there?" "General, we got a whole shitload of Chinese up here!" "Thank God!" exclaimed Puller, "At least there's someone up there who knows how to count!"
"So tell me, Mrs. Smith," asked the interviewer, "have you got any other skills you think may be worth mentioning?" "Actually, yes," said the applicant modestly. "Last year I had two short stories published in national magazines, and I finished my novel." "Very impressive," he commented, "but I was thinking of skills you could apply during office hours." Mrs Smith explained brightly, "Oh, that was all writen during office hours.
