He wasn't sure how many rolls of wallpaper he would need but he knew that the Irishman who lived next door had recently done the same job and the two rooms were identical in size. "Murphy," he asked, "How many rolls of wallpaper did you buy for your bedroom?" "Twenty" said Murphy. So the fellow bought the twenty rolls of paper and did the job. It looked wonderful, but he had 12 rolls of wallpaper left over. "Murphy," he said. "I bought twenty rolls of wallpaper for the bedroom, but I've got 12 left over!" "Dat's funny," said Murphy.

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and a Darwin Award goes to Jennifer Jane Olney, 48, Des Moines, Iowa Kicked Daughter While Drunk On Hand Sanitizer A mother in West Des Moines, Iowa, is facing child endangerment charges after allegedly kicking her daughter while drunk on hand sanitizer. Jennifer Jane Olney, 48, was arrested Tuesday after officers responded to a report of medication and alcohol hand sanitizer overdose at her residence, KCCI.com reports. Police said Olney's speech was slurred and she was acting aggressively. Witnesses told the responding officers that Olney had been behaving erratically and threatened to take all of her medications at once. She allegedly called her daughter's elementary school to scream at employees, according to the Des Moines Register. Olney's mental state was such that her father went in her place to pick up the girl at school. After talking with Olney, officers gave her two choices: Turn her daughter over to the Iowa Department of Human Services, or check herself into a hospital for treatment, according to the New York Daily News. After much crying and yelling, Olney agreed to seek help. She then got off the couch and allegedly kicked her daughter in the leg, which caused the girl to burst into tears. When officers went to arrest Olney, she allegedly fought back by kicking and screaming, the Des Moines Register reports. Olney was charged with child endangerment and interference with official acts inflicting bodily injury. She’s being held at the Polk County Jail on $3,000 bond. The daughter was left in her grandfather’s care, according to the Associated Press. 4______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Puzzled Pat Re: turn pictures into wallpaper Dear Webby, Some of your pictures are very nice, and would look nice as wallpaper on my home page.

DearWebby ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ There's this old priest who got sick of all the people in his parish who kept confessing to adultery. One Sunday, in the pulpit, he said, "If I hear that word one more time, I'll quit!" Everyone liked him, so they came up with a code word. Someone who had committed adultery would say they had "fallen." This seemed to satisfy the old priest and things went well, until the priest died at a ripe old age. About a week after the new priest arrived, he visited the mayor of the town and seemed very concerned. The priest said, "You have to do something about the roads and sidewalks in town. When people come into the confessional, they keep talking about having fallen." The mayor started to laugh, realizing that no one had told the new priest about the code word. Before the mayor could explain, the priest shook an accusing finger at the mayor and said, "I don't know what you're laughing about, your own wife fell three times this week already, and your daughter fell twice!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Damp Cloth Keeps Cutting Board from Slipping In order to keep the cutting board from sliding around while slicing potatoes, put a slightly damp washcloth under it.
