No man ever listened himself out of a job. --- Calvin Coolidge (1872 - 1933) ______________________________________________________ I went out to this restaurant not long ago and met the waitress of my dreams. About halfway through dinner I called the waitress over and said, "Ma'am, this potato is bad." She nodded, picked up the potato, and smacked it. Then she put it back on my plate and said, "Sir, if that potato causes any more trouble, you just let me know." ______________________________________________________ The captain was attempting to rally the GIs on the eve of a big offensive. "Out there," he yelled, "is your enemy. The man who has made your life miserable, who is working to destroy you; the man who has been trying to kill you day after day! He is out there!." Private Johnson jumped to his feet. "The cook ! The cook is working for THEM!" ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Mount Kilimanjaro

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Michael Aaron Joseph, 30, Shelby County Kentucky Held Woman At Gunpoint, Tattooed 'Slut' On Her Back A Kentucky man remains behind bars after allegedly assaulting a woman by tattooing the word "slut" on her back while holding her at gunpoint. A grand jury indicted Michael Aaron Joseph, 30, last week on a variety of charges including second-degree assault, first-degree wanton endangerment and first-degree unlawful imprisonment. The charges stem from an incident last May, where Joseph allegedly accused the victim of contacting her ex-boyfriend. During an argument, Joseph “repeatedly struck [the victim] in the mouth, face and head area with a pistol,” according to a police report obtained by the Anderson News. When the two arrived home, the suspect allegedly grabbed a .22 caliber pistol and showed the woman it was loaded. Then he held her on the floor while tattooing "slut" on her back, LEX18.com reports. Joseph remains jailed in the Shelby County Detention Center on $15,000 cash bail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: MooMoo Re: Uni Blue Dear Webby, You used to have a link to a registry fixer called Blue or Uno Blue or something like that.

It really speeds up boiling time. Having said this, I did read of someone who took it a bit further. They grated their potatoes, and the result was grey wallpaper paste! So half inch cubes is probably the best option. By Verity Pink [20] ______________________________________________________ A local Pastor joined a community Service Club, and the members thought they would have some fun with him. Under his name badge they printed, "Hog Caller" as his occupation. Everyone made a big fanfare as the badge was presented. The Pastor responded by saying, "I usually am called the "Shepherd'... but I am sure you know your people better than I do."

As the high school teacher was correcting essays written by her students she read, "Diana jumped on his burrow and rode off into the sunset." She wrote at the bottom of the page, "You obviously have problems with similar sounding words. A burrow is a hole in the ground. A burro is an ass. At your age it's time to learn the difference." _____________________________________________________ An elderly Jewish woman decided to have her portrait painted. She told the artist, "Paint me with diamond earrings, a diamond necklace, emerald bracelets, a ruby broach, and a Rolex." "But you are not wearing any of those things." "Oy, don't I know it," she said. "My husband never buys me anything! It's in case I should die before my husband. I'm sure he will remarry right away, and I want his new wife to go crazy looking for the jewelry."
I'm a dog lover and I'm so glad that lost "Arthur" found this race team from Sweden to join on their 430 mile endurance trek through the Amazonian rain forest. Arthur has a brave heart and the four people whom he attached himself to were good people to allow and help him to travel with them. Arthur deserves a medal for bravery and endurance. Dogs are awesome!
