People want economy and they will pay any price to get it. --- Lee Iacocca (1924 - ) We are the people our parents warned us about. --- Jimmy Buffett
A programmer, an accountant and a lawyer are all standing around at a party discussing if it's better to have a wife or a girlfriend. The accountant says, "A girlfriend! No commitments, no hassles. When you get tired, you just move on." The lawyer says, "One needs a wife. That way you have a representative; an extension of yourself at important gatherings with influential people". The programmer says, "You're both wrong. You need a wife and a girlfriend. That way the wife thinks you're with the girlfriend; the girlfriend thinks you're with the wife and all the while you're at the office being creative!"
The gynecologist complimented the young woman on his examination table. "Go home and tell your husband to prepare for a baby." "But I don't have a husband," the girl replied. "Then, go home and tell your lover." "But I don't have a lover. I've never had a lover!" "In that case," the doctor sighed, "go home and tell your mother to prepare for the second coming of Christ."

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Richard Thompson, 32, of Stamford, Connecticut Reported by Moe Robber Attempts To Hold Up Boxing Champion Clerk,gets clobbered Police say Leverett Johnson walked into this 7-Eleven store on the Pitt campus looking to rob it. Clerk Eric Sydnor was on duty in the store when Johnson confronted him. Sydnor told KDKA’s Ross Guidotti, “It’s like one of those things where it was a blur what exactly was going on.” Sydnor says Johnson pointed the pistol at him demanding money, but apparently had no idea who he was dealing with. That’s because Sydnor is a Golden Gloves champion with hard hands. “I won the Golden Gloves once, and made it to the finals three times.” When asked how he handled Johnson, Sydnor said, “He got slammed.” Syndors trainer Jose Caraballo says Johnson, “picked the wrong guy and store to walk into that night.” But, the young boxer didn’t come out of the fight unscathed. Johnson allegedly bit Sydnor’s hands. Sydnor says he’ll be fine and ready for the U.S. Olympic Boxing team trials. Sydnor says he’s no hero, and his ring and game skill matter less than what’s in his heart. “The fact that I’m a boxer had nothing to do with anything. It’s just what’s right, and what’s wrong.” Johnson was still in the hospital Tuesday, recovering from the beating Sydnor administered, police said. Johnson, of Pittsburgh, has been charged with robbery, aggravated assault and criminal mischief. Online court records on Tuesday showed he faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 15 Tech Support Pits From: Jaye Re: Highlighted words and pop-ups Dear Webby, I really need some advice here...Recently all my internet pages and even on the internet web pages in all the sentences there are certain words highlighted.

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Snack Plastic Bag as Sandwich Pocket Don't you hate it when the tomato starts dripping all over your hand while eating a sandwich, or the onion falls out, or the grease runs down your hand from that juicy hamburger? No more! I keep a box of Snack Plastic Bags handy. They are only about 6 x 3 inches - just the right size to fit the bottom of your sandwich in. Once slid in there and you start to eat your sandwich or burger, there is no mess. It is all in the bottom of the plastic bag! Sometimes the vegetables and/or meat start to slide down and out of your sandwich on to the floor. But in the small plastic bag, just keep a couple of your fingers on the bottom and they keep the ingredients from slipping out. By cacollie [2] http://www. thriftyfun.com/

A linguistics professor was lecturing to his class one day. "In English," he said, "a double negative forms a positive. In some languages, though, such as Russian, a double negative is still a negative. However, there is no language wherein a double positive can form a negative." A voice from the back of the room said, "Yeah, right."
There was this man who, many years ago, worked for a large business. That was his lifetime employment, but he wasn't happy there. He wanted to go in business for himself. He saved his money and finally had enough that he could quit and start his own business. About two years later, I was on vacation and was going through the town where his business was located. I stopped by for a visit. "Hey John, I heard that the first year is the hardest for a new business." "Yeah, the first year was pretty rough, but we are doing pretty good now. In fact, I'm getting to where I only have to work half a day." "Wow, that's pretty nice. Maybe I should think about going into business for myself." "Yeah, and the nicest part of it is that it doesn't matter which twelve hours you work."
