Humor is always based on a modicum of truth. Have you ever heard a joke about a father-in-law? --- Dick Clark ______________________________________________________ A lady came to the hospital to visit a friend. She had not been in a hospital for several years and felt very ignorant about all the new technology. A technician followed her onto the elevator, wheeling a large, intimidating looking machine with tubes and wires and dials. "Boy, would I hate to be hooked up to that thing," she said. "So would I," replied the technician. "It's a floor-cleaning machine." ______________________________________________________ In California's Sonoma Valley, where vineyards cater to wine snobbery, a woman phoned the classified ad department of a newspaper. She offered for sale what sounded like "well-aged Caumeneur." The ad-taker was unfamiliar with that particular, wine, but was used to the infusion of French words into the local vocabulary. "Could you please spell that?" she asked. "You know," said the woman impatiently, "C-o-w M-a-n-u-r-e". ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Canadian SOS ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ reported by Don An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Weldon, 46 Ocala Florida Man arrested after he says he lied about being shot A man who showed up at a restaurant claiming he had been shot and that he apparently had killed the shooter was arrested by Ocala police on Friday for filing a false report. While 46-year-old Michael Weldon, who has an extensive criminal history, was being taken to the Marion County Jail by Officer Sean Young, he told the official he was just trying to have some fun and thought “he would get a sandwich from Applebee’s for his story.” His story was anything but funny to police, who had dispatched at least a dozen officers and Ocala Fire Rescue personnel to various areas investigating Weldon’s allegation that he had been shot. A waitress at the popular fast food chain told officers Weldon was standing in the patio section leaning against a table holding his side. Appearing to be in pain, the employee saw what appeared to be blood by Weldon’s feet. Asked if he was fine, Weldon told the woman he had been shot and showed her what looked like a bullet hole in his jacket. He then asked for some water and the employee told her manager, who called police. The manager said that when she talked with Weldon, he told her he was shot and was holding his right side. Weldon said he was tussling with another man in the woods near Sears and had to kill the man. He wouldn’t say why he killed the man or why he was shot. Officers, who arrived at the location and were quizzing Weldon, examined him and discovered he was not shot. He didn’t want to tell officers what happened, other than to say that “I took care of it, I don’t want to tell anybody,” according to the report. As he was being transported to Sears, he told an officer that he was “just having fun,” and told people at the bar that he was joking. Officers recovered betadine in Weldon’s pocket, which he allegedly used to make the appearance of blood. Officers searched the woods, which was clear, and checking his jacket, they found the hole was actually a burn from a cigarette. Court documents show Weldon has multiple convictions dating back to 2005 for offenses including battery, retail theft and disorderly conduct. Weldon was convicted of burglary of a structure and released just two months ago. Tech Support Pits From: Smurf Re: Attack on Sony Dear Webby I read that "US rejects North Korea offer to investigate Sony hack", and stands firm in it's allegations. Which seem to be routine blustering and bullshit. Hasn't it been established that the hack was caused with a worm, that might have been snuck into the Sony network by a discgruntled employee, or some dimwit, who wanted some utility, that came with a nasty payload? Smurf Dear Smurf Yes, you are right, as usual. North Korea probably got involved with gleefully spreading what the hackers dug out, AFTER the hackers had posted their harvest on the net. The worm, that let the hackers in and allowed them to export all kinds of sensitive data was most likely made in the USA or Russia, and is apparently in use by many hackers to snoop and break in wherever they can. It is not new and is a well documented worm and method. The better Anti-malware programs like McAfee and Malwarebytes protect you against it, but if some bozo gets impatient when Malwarebytes slows down a computer while it does a scan, and shuts it off, then that is like riding a motorcycle with the helmet hanging on the handdlebar. Kinda stooopid. However, we don't even know whether Sony DID have decent malware protection, or just a snooty IT department, that figured their own stuff was good enough. Fact is, that SMB worm let one or two hackers quietly sneak in and export tons of stuff without their IT department noticing it. It was NOT a big Denial-Of-Service attack by North Korea renting a Russian Botnet for $50,000 and battering down Sony's defenses. If that had been the case, the Sony IT department would have noticed it immediately, instead of reading in the news about stuff, that had been exported and published. Sure, North Korea was miffed about that movie, and it would be typical for them to take any credit for ANYTHING happening to Sony, but it is very unlikely, that they paid a hacker to go after Sony. They would be too paranoid about the hacker doing the same thing to them. Have FUN!

______________________________________________________ Two priests were talking together and the older one said to the younger, "You know, when you came into church with all your new ideas, I had questions about how you were going to fit in and how well your ideas were going to work." "When you wanted to put bucket seats down in the front two rows of seats, I had my doubts. But now, at every mass, the seats are filled up with young people, so I have to agree that it was a good idea." "Then, when you wanted to jazz up the choir and we started singing newer, peppier songs, I was afraid it would offend the parishioners. Now, we have a lot of new, younger choir members, and the music seems to pick up the services a lot more than the old music. So, once again I have to agree that you were right! "But when you wanted to put in the drive-through confessional, I have to admit I thought you'd lost it. But now, at least, there are more people coming to confession than ever. I think you've come up with another good idea." "However, the neon sign out front that says, 'Toot 'n tell or go to hell', has got to go! ______________________________________________________ A teenaged boy with spiked hair, nose ring, and baggy clothes says to his friend, "I don't really like to dress like this, but it keeps my parents from making me go with them to visit Aunt Helen."
