I think on-stage nudity is disgusting, shameful and damaging to all things American. But if I were 22 with a great body, it would be artistic, tasteful, patriotic and a progressive religious experience. --- Shelley Winters (1922 - 2006) Ninety-eight percent of the adults in this country are decent, hard-working, honest Americans. It's the other lousy two percent that get all the publicity. But then--we elected them. --- Lily Tomlin

There are these two statues in a park; one of a nude man and one of a nude woman. They had been facing each other across a pathway for a hundred years, when one day an angel comes down from the sky and, with a single gesture, brings the two to life. The angel tells them, "As a reward for being so patient through a hundred blazing summers and dismal winters, you have been given life for thirty minutes to do what you've wished to do the most." He looks at her, she looks at him, and they go running behind the shrubbery. The angel waits patiently as the bushes rustle and giggling ensues. After fifteen minutes, the two return, out of breath and laughing. The angel tells them, "Um, you have fifteen minutes left. Would you care to do it again?" He asks her, "Shall we?" She eagerly replies, "Oh, yes, let's! But let's change positions. This time I hold the pigeon down and you crap on its head!"

Thanks to Ron for this story: My wife and I are teachers, and our jobs often spill over into our family life. One morning, as our eight-year-old Maggie was getting ready for school, I peeked into her room just to be sure she had tidied it up. "You call THAT a made bed?" I asked. "No, Dad," Maggie replied. "It's just a rough draft."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Suzanne Hussain,34, Calhoun, Georgia Naked Woman Vandalized, Flooded Stranger's Home A woman in Calhoun, Georgia, came home to a big surprise: Her home was looted and filled with water. The woman called deputies and when they investigated the house, they allegedly found an even bigger surprise: A naked woman hiding in one of the closets. The naked woman in question was Suzanne Hussain, 34, who lives about seven miles away and didn’t know the homeowner, according to Sheriff Mitch Ralston of the Gordon County Sheriffs Office. “Ms. Hussain was in fact nude, and was acting abnormally, but was taken into custody without further incident,” Ralston posted on the sheriff’s office website. An estimate of the destruction's cost has not been released, but Ralston described the house as "extensively damaged." Investigators have not determined any motive. Hussain was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated. After her release, she was arrested and charged with burglary and criminal damage to property, WSB TV reports. Hussain is still in jail awaiting a bond amount. She is also being held on a probation violation for a prior charge of possession of methamphetamine. Tech Support Pits From: Richard Re: Computer for Europe I have to go to Europe for six month. Can my computer be adapted to work over there, or would it be better to buy one there? I also have an Iomega remote hard drive. Does that one work there? Thanks Richard Dear Richard Yes, they all work just fine in Europe. Take along the power bar that you use now, but cut the plug off. When you get there, go to the nearest hardware store or supermarket and buy a regular plug. Each country there has a different plug, and some countries have different ones in different regions. All that talk about a united and standardized Europe is just BS. The only thing they all have in common is a dislike for Americans. Get the local plug and attach it to the power bar cord. Then look at the back of your computer for a tiny, red slide switch. Sometimes it is covered by tape to keep kids from playing with it. Use a pen or small screwdriver to slide that switch to the 220 setting. The same with the monitor, unless it already has a 100 - 240 Volt rating printed on the back. The Iomega remote hard drive doesn't care what voltage you power it with. It adapts automatically for anything between 100 and 240. You COULD get an adapter for the area that you go to, but they cost 8 - 10 times more than an ordinary power plug, plus shipping. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Saving Money on Hand Soap Here is how I save money on soap. I do not have a brand loyalty, so when I see soap at rummage sales and garage sales, I buy it, often at 10-25 cents a bar. Often it is something fancy from a gift set. I have not paid full price for years. When my soap bars get small, I save them in a paper cup. When I have a good amount of these scraps, I grate them and add just enough water to make the crumbs stick together in a clay-like consistency then I form it into bars by hand. I let it dry a bit, for a week or so, before using. It lasts a long time. Use these for everyday hand-washing and bathing and save some of the designer soap for when you have company.

Final Exams One night Jack Evans, along with his 3 university friends went out drinkinig till late night, as many college students are prone to do, and didn't study for their test, which, of course, was scheduled for the next day. In the morning they thought of a plan. They made themselves look as dirty and weird as they could with grease and dirt. They went up to the dean and explained that they had gone out to a wedding last night and on their return the tire of their car burst. They continued to explain how they had to push the car all the way back and that they were in no condition to appear for the test. The dean, being a compassionate human being said that they could rtake the test after 3 days. The students garaciously replied that they'd be ready by that time. On the third day, they appeared before the dean. The dean explained that since this was a special test all four were required to sit in separate classrooms for the duraction of the exam. They all agreed as they had prepared well in the last three days. The test consisted of 5 questions with total of 100 points: FINAL COURSEWORK EXAMINATION INSTRUCTIONS : All questions are required. Any inconsistencies on any of the questions among the four students will result in all the candidates getting a zero mark. Q.1. Write down your name. ----- (2 POINTS) Q.2. Write the name of the bride and bridegroom at the wedding you attended. ----- (30 POINTS) Q.3. What type of a car were you driving? ------(20 POINTS) Q.4. Which tire burst? ------- (28 POINTS) Q.5.

A professor was giving a big test one day to his students. He handed out all of the tests and went back to his desk to wait. Once the test was over the students all handed the tests back in. The professor noticed that one of the students had attached a $100 bill to his test with a note saying "A dollar per point." The next class the professor handed the tests back out. This student got back his test and $64 change.
