My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Adlai E. Stevenson Jr. (1900 - 1965) ______________________________________________________ Farmer Josh killed a pig and hung it up for the night, intending to butcher it in the morning, but the next day it was gone. He didn't tell a soul about it, and nothing happened for more than two months. Then another farmer, who lived down the road, came by and said, "By the way Josh, did you ever find out who stole your pig?" "Nope," said Josh. "Not until just now." ______________________________________________________ When Nathan Radlich's house was burgled, thieves left his TV, his VCR, and even left his watch. What they did take was "generic white cardboard box filled with greyish-white powder." (That at least is the way the police described it.) A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said "that it looked similar to cocaine and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big time." Then Nathan stood in front of the TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars: "Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three years ago." Well, the next morning, the bullet-riddled corpse of a drug dealer known as Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The cardboard box was there too; about half of Gertrude's ashes remained. And there was this note. It said: "Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day." ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture The dark layers are rain and run-off from a mountain

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD Devin Gesell 17, St. Peters, Missouri Teen Burglar Devin Gesell Tasted Dead Man's Stolen Ashes, Thought They Were Cocaine He looks like the cops told him about the story of Hoochie. Back in November 2014, a trio of accused teenaged burglars in St. Peters, Missouri, happened upon a wooden box while they were pilfering jewelry, Xbox consoles and prescription medication at a home, The Smoking Gun reports. The two teens who broke into the home looked inside, saw some powder and assuming it was cocaine, nicked the box as well. It turns out that the box contained the cremated remains of the burglary victim's father. As they drove away from the scene, 17-year-old Devin Gesell, who told cops he'd acted as a lookout, tasted the contents of the box to make sure his 15 and 16-year-old accomplices had in fact stolen a box of blow, according to the police report. Gesell determined the powder was not cocaine, and promptly chucked the container out the window of the car. The victim, Deborah Matthews, said she and her family were away visiting relatives in California for Thanksgiving when the break-in occurred. She couldn't believe the teens stole her father's ashes. "I was sick, sick to my stomach," Matthews told KSDK. Cops were able to find Gesell by tracking the IP address of one of the stolen Xboxes. Gesell was charged Friday with multiple felonies. His companions face charges as juveniles and were not identified. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Sam Re: Submitting to Search Engines Dear Webby, I usually submit my sites to about a dozen search engines after every uopdate. Id that a waste of time? Sam Dear Sam Yes, it is. Submitting has been abused too much, and all the serious search engines ignore it. Good, clean HTML and lots of text will get you catalogued well. INcoming links from other sites will notify the search engine robots to crawl your site and catalog them. Meta text on top is also a waste of time. It has been abused way too much and proven a total nuisance. Some search engines actually penalize you, if you have meta stuff on top. Have FUN! DearWebby ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Rosita got lost in her car in a snowstorm. She remembered what her dad had once told her. "If you ever get stuck in a snow storm, wait for a snow plow and follow it." Pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. She explained that her dad had told her if she ever got lost in a snowstorm, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, "Well, I'm done with the Wal-Mart parking lot now, but you can follow me over to K-Mart" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Magazine Cover Bows Did you know that magazine covers can be curled just like curling ribbon? I'm sure you have tons of magazines around. Get cracking with the strips of paper, scissors, and glue sticks. It looks fabulous especially when some are left straight.

_____________________________________________________ From today in 2001 ===From My-Lil-Empress Dear Dear Webby I wish I could tell you how grateful I am to you for keeping my husband and coach alive even though he died in an accident four years ago today. While everybody else calls me nicknames like "half-pint" and "evil-runt" and worse, Roy always called me "My-Lil-Empress" and in his eyes I was a real person, not just a half size. The more everybody else put me down, the more Roy always did things to build up my self confidence and make me feel good about myself. Giving me a subscription to the Humor Letter under the name that he used for me, that was one of those things. Even though he is long dead, every morning when the Humor Letter greets me with "Dear My-Lil-Empress !", it's Roy boosting me up, and even though I am only 4' 6", I walk tall ! Thanks Roy, and Thanks Webby! My-Lil-Empress=== Dear My-Lil-Empress It's real people like you who are the reason that I don't mind if the sky turns pink in the east before my previous day's shift is over, as long as the Humor Letter goes out. DearWebby _____________________________________________________ During a friendly argument, Jim asked his wife why she married him in the first place. "I was just stupid," she teased. When he said he was happy to hear that, she was surprised and requested an explanation. "Well, people get divorced all the time because they fall out of love," he said. "But I've never heard of anybody falling out of stupid." ____________________________________________________
