What is the difference between unethical and ethical advertising? Unethical advertising uses falsehoods to deceive the public; ethical advertising uses truth to deceive the public. --- Vilhjalmur Stefansson (1879 - 1962) ______________________________________________________ I volunteered recently to perform a parachute jump for charity. On our first day of training, the instructor made an important point about preparing for landing at 300 feet. "How do you know when you're at 300 feet?" asked one woman. "A good question," replied the instructor. "At 300 feet you can recognize the faces of people on the ground." The woman thought about this for awhile before saying, "What happens if there's no one there I know?" ______________________________________________________ >From Helga He didn't like the casserole And he didn't like my cake. My biscuits were too hard, Not like his mother used to make. I didn't perk the coffee right He didn't like the stew. I didn't mend his socks, The way his mother used to do. I pondered for an answer I was looking for a clue. Then I turned around and smacked him, Like his Mother used to do. ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Roy for this picture: Click through for the big picture Monastery in Armenia

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Stewart Charles McNeal, 34, Delray Beach, Florida, McNeal Tells Police He Wasn't 'Good At The Robbery Thing' He gets points for honesty. A man who allegedly attempted to rob a Dunkin' Donuts admitted to police that he "wasn't very good at the robbery thing." Stewart Charles McNeal, 34, turned himself in last Thursday after police in Delray Beach, Florida, circulated a surveillance photo of a robbery of the donut store that took place Jan. 21, WPTV reports. McNeal allegedly entered the Dunkin' Donuts around 12:20 .m. wearing a mask. Cops said he waited in line for several minutes before going up to the counter with a gun in hand. The clerk ignored him and attended to another customer, the Palm Beach Post reports. At one point, cops said, McNeal pulled off his mask and continued to wait for the employee to acknowledge him so he could commence with the robbery. McNeal allegedly took an undisclosed amount of money from a cash register and asked an employee to "forgive him." He allegedly left in a Honda Accord that was driven by an accomplice the suspect called "Chris," CBS12 reports. The driver is still on the loose, according to police. McNeal told police when he saw photos of himself everywhere, he figured the jig was up and turned himself in. He allegedly said the robbery was strictly to feed his drug habit, and admitted he "wasn't very good at the robbery thing," WPTV reports. McNeal is being held on a $20,000 bond on a charge of robbery with a firearm. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Svend Re: Scandahoovian characters Dear Webby, Did I miss something on the Deeproot way of typing in missing characters on the keyboard? - I don't see the scandihoovian ones like and .

Get a piece of fabric like a T-shirt. Cut it into small squares. Deflate the air mattress in this process and know where your pinhole is! Put Gorilla Glue on the felt and then on the fabric. Push it on to the hole. Then get a hair dryer, keep a little far away on warm for 2 minutes. Let it dry 3 to 4 hours. Fill your bed up and it's done. Hope I helped someone, good luck! By michael lonsdorf [1] ______________________________________________________ >From Max I'd been working on my business degree for about a year when I finally got to take a popular finance course. I went to the bookstore to buy the text and was shocked to find out that it would cost me $96. I asked how much it was worth if I sold it back at the end of the semester. "You'll get $24," said the clerk. "This is insane," I protested as I wrote out the check. "I know," replied the clerk sympathetically. "I've always thought that a person who buys a book for $96 and then sells it for $24 should fail the course."

The deliveryman looked over the gate towards the house which was his package's destination, and saw a large and aggressive- looking dog on the lawn, staring at him. There was also a woman looking at him from an open first-floor window. He shouted to the woman, "Is your dog friendly?" She said, "Yes, MY dog is friendly." So the deliveryman opened the gate, and was promptly savaged by the dog. When he had been rescued from the dog, the deliveryman angrily said to the woman, "I thought you said your dog was friendly!" "MY dog is friendly and inside here with me." said the woman, "The one you wrestled with is not my dog." _____________________________________________________ Here is an annual favorite: Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, "I'd like to get you guys in now, but our computer's down. You'll have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can't go back as priests. What'll it be?" The first priest says, "I've always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky Mountains." "So be it," says St. Peter, and off flies the first priest. The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, "Will any of this week 'count', St. Peter?" "No, I told you the computer's down. There's no way we can keep track of what you're doing." "In that case," says the second priest, "I've always wanted to be a stud." "So be it" says St. Peter, and the second priest disappears. A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. "Will you have any trouble locating them?" He asks. "The first one should be easy," says St. Peter. "He's somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult." "Why?" asketh the Lord. "He's on a snow tire, somewhere in Montana."
