You cannot make a man by standing a sheep on its hind legs. But by standing a flock of sheep in that position you can make a crowd of men. --- Max Beerbohm (1872 - 1956)
A dinner speaker was in such a hurry to get to his engagement that when he arrived and sat down at the head table, he suddenly realized that he had forgotten his false teeth. Turning to the man next to him, he said, "I forgot my teeth." The man said, "No problem." With that, he reached into his pocket and pulled out a pair of false teeth. "Try these," he said. The speaker tried them. "Too loose," he said. The man then said, "I have another pair... try these." The speaker tried them and responded, "Too tight." The man was not taken back at all. He then said, "I have one more pair of false teeth... try them." The speaker said, "They fit perfectly." With that he ate his meal and gave his address. After the dinner meeting was over, the speaker went over to thank the man who had helped him. "I want to thank you for coming to my aid. Where is your office? I've been looking for a good dentist." The man replied, "I'm not a dentist. I'm the local undertaker."

Reported by Helen An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Ryan James Mullins, 22, Swansboro, NC Burglar caught dragging safe behind truck A Swansboro man is accused of stealing a safe from a drug store during an early-morning break-in. Police say 22-year-old Ryan James Mullins was dragging the safe when he was caught Tuesday. He's charged with safecracking, breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, possession of stolen goods, trafficking of opium or heroin and several traffic violations. Officers responding to an alarm say they found Mullins driving down a road towing the safe. The safe in the incident was about 8 feet tall and about 2 feet deep and was used to hold medications, according to Public Safety Chief Bob Ritchie. It's believed that Mullins was trying to get controlled substances from the safe. That must have woken up half of Swansboro! Remember the sound of students dragging dumpsters filled with drunk youngsters around town during spring break celebrations? That safe must have made a similar racket. Tech Support Pits From: Jim Re: Forwarding movies Good morning, Dude! Another question for you. Ophelia sometimes has these video clips that I would like to copy to send to friends but I have had no luck figuring out how. Help!? Thanks again....you're the greatest! Jim Dear Jim Why not just send them the URL to her newsletter or her Blog archive? Even if you manage to save them and get them to work on your machine, which can be very tricky, it is a big gamble whether they will work on your buddy's machine. In her blog scroll to the bottom of THAT day, and click on the tiny PERMA-LINK link. That gives you a URL, that goes straight to that day, even if it is from years ago. With any luck your buddy will sign up and make her day. Have FUN! DearWebby

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Blanket Curtain Without Sewing This blanket was the perfect size, color, and price to cover my closet. But my sewing machine is in storage so... I got 10 binder clips and a package of shower curtain rings from the dollar store, and made them work. Now that I have done this, I can advise you to use something just a bit thinner for the rings. I couldn't get them through, but one of the loops to click them. So anything would work; bigger key rings, etc. Looks nice, huh? Total cost: $2.95. N-JOY!

SCIENCE: BREAD IS DANGEROUS 1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users. 2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread- consuming households score below average on standardized tests. 3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less than 50 years; infant mortality rates were unacceptably high; many women died in childbirth; and diseases such as typhoid, yellow fever, and influenza ravaged whole nations. 4. More than 90 percent of violent crimes are committed within 24 hours of eating bread. 5. Bread has been proven to be addictive. Subjects deprived of bread and given only water to eat, begged for bread after as little as two days. 6. Bread is often a "gateway" food item, leading the user to "harder" items such as butter, jelly, peanut butter, and even cream cheese. 7. Bread has been proven to absorb water. Since the human body is more than 90 percent water, it follows that eating bread could lead to your body being taken over by this absorptive food product, turning you into a soggy, gooey, bread-pudding person. 8. Newborn babies can choke on bread. 9. Bread is baked at temperatures as high as 450 degrees Fahrenheit! That kind of heat can kill an adult in less than two minutes. 10. Most American bread eaters are utterly unable to distinguish between significant scientific fact and meaningless AlGorian statistical babbling.
A woman noticed her husband standing on the bathroom scale sucking in his stomach. Thinking he was trying to weigh less with this maneuver, she commented, "I don't think that's going to help" "Sure it does, " he says, "it's the only way I can see the numbers."
