An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Luis Vazquez, 30, Jose Vales, 38, Kissimmee, Florida Thrown Cocaine Landed On Hood Of Police Car In a botched bid to ditch evidence, a Florida man allegedly threw a bag of cocaine out the sunroof of a vehicle in which he was a passenger, but the drug landed squarely on the hood of a trailing police car, according to investigators. As detailed in a Kissimmee Police Department report, cop Christopher Breuer sought to pull over a gold Acura around 2 AM yesterday after the vehicle nearly slammed into his cruiser. Though Breuer activated his car’s overhead lights, the other vehicle, which carried two men, continued moving. While shining a spotlight on the Acura, Breuer noted, “I saw the sun roof of the vehicle open.” Breuer slowed his car down since, “I knew the passenger was going to throw something out of the vehicle.” Breuer then watched as the vehicle’s passenger stick his right hand out of the sunroof. “At this time, I observed a clear bag come out of the sun roof and fly into the air. This same bag landed on the hood of my vehicle as I slowed down,” the cop reported. After the Acura eventually pulled into the parking lot of a 7-Eleven store, Breuer quizzed the car’s occupants about the airborne cocaine. While Luis Vazquez, 30, denied tossing the stash, driver Jose Vales, 38, did not hesitate to finger his passenger as the coke hurler. “Vales spontaneously uttered to me that it was Vazquez that threw the ‘baggie’ out of the window,” Breuer reported. Both men were subsequently arrested on a variety of drug counts. Vazquez was also charged with evidence tampering for flinging the cocaine. Vazquez (left) and Vales are pictured in the above mug shots. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Donny Re: Clean IE address bar Dear Webby, Hope your health and eyesight are well.

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 tourist climbed out of his car in downtown Washington, D.C. He said to a man standing near the curb, "Listen, I'm going to be only a couple of minutes. Would you watch my car while I run into this store to get some smokes?" "What?" the man huffed. "Do you realize that I am a member of the United States Senate?" "Well no," the tourist said, "I didn't realize that. I guess I better find somebody a bit more trustworthy."

After tucking their three-year-old child Sammy in for bed one night, his parents heard sobbing coming from his room. Rushing back in, they found him crying hysterically. He managed to tell them that he had swallowed a penny and he was sure he was going to die. No amount of talking was helping. His father, in an attempt to calm him down, palmed a penny from his pocket and pretended to pull it from Sammy's ear. Sammy was delighted. In a flash, he snatched it from his father's hand, swallowed it, then cheerfully demanded, "Do it again, Daddy, do it again!!!" _____________________________________________________ A monastery in the English countryside had fallen on hard times, and decided to establish a business to defray their expenses, such as a bakery or winery. Being English, however, they decided to open a fish-and-chips restaurant. The establishment soon became very popular, attracting people from all over. One city fellow, thinking himself clever, asked one of the brothers standing nearby, "I suppose you're the 'fish friar'?" "No", answered the brother levelly, "I'm the 'chip monk'."
