Before getting out of the car he put on his ski mask and then went to the door and tried opening it by pushing and pulling it. When he realized the door was locked HE STARTED BANGING ON THE DOOR, as if anyone was going to open the doors one minute after closing time, especially for someone wearing a ski mask! Concerned that this might set a precedent and that other people too might expect to be let in after official closing time, employees called the police. Drake was arrested. That'll teach him a lesson. Annoying the pretty ladies at the bank is very boneheaded! ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Kilt Rock Scotland

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD and a Darwin Award have been earned by Tony Robinson 19, Madison, Wisconsin Today's Bonehead Award and Darwin Award goes to a Wisconsin criminal, who knocked down a cop. Briefly. The unarmed Wisconsin teenager who was shot to death last night during a confrontation with a Madison cop pleaded guilty last year to armed robbery and recently began serving a three-year probation term for that felony conviction, court records show. According to police, an officer responded Friday to a 911 call about a man who had assaulted a victim and was dodging cars in traffic. The cop followed the suspect into a nearby apartment, where the man allegedly struck the officer on the head, knocking him to the ground. During an ensuing struggle, patrolman Matt Kenny eventually shot the suspect. Family and friends have identified the victim as Anthony “Tony” Robinson, a 19-year-old Madison resident. “The initial finding at the scene did not reflect a gun or anything of that nature that would have been used by the subject," said Madison Police Chief Mike Koval. Robinson’s mother, Andrea Irwin, said that, “My son has never been a violent person. And to die in such a violent, violent way, it baffles me.” Appqarently she doesn't consider armed home invasion robbery or assaulting people or knocking down a cop as violent. Robinson, pictured above, was arrested last April following an armed home invasion at a Madison residence, according to police records. Cops were called to the scene around 6 AM by a neighbor who “spotted several men, one of them armed with a long gun, entering an apartment building,” according to a police report. Police arrived at the home “just as the armed robbery was ending” and a group of suspects was fleeing “with electronics and other property.” Cops subsequently recovered a shotgun and a facsimile handgun used during the robbery, as well as some of the stolen property. Robinson was one of five suspects (each of whom was 18 at the time of their arrest) busted for the home invasion. In October, he pleaded guilty to armed robbery and was later sentenced to six months in jail, though a judge stayed the execution of the custodial term. Robinson was also placed on three years probation, which he began serving in late-December. That clueless sentence was what killed Robinson. Any violent criminal put on probation will commit serious violence to avoid going to jail after his next criminally violent act. Two of Robinson’s codefendants have also pleaded to armed robbery, while the felony cases against the remaining two defendants are pending. Robinson was also the defendant in a paternity action filed last year by a 24-year-old Madison woman. The civil matter ended with a paternity judgment being served on Robinson with regard to the child, a boy who just turned one. A judge ruled that, “parties will have joint legal custody; no placement order and no child support order entered as neither party appeared to provide info.” On his Twitter account, Robinson yesterday included a link to a story about the scathing Department of Justice probe into the Ferguson, Missouri police department. On Thursday, he tweeted, “I need a babe to take care of me when I'm off the drugs.” In other tweets, the teen--whose handle included the name “Tony Montana”--frequently referred to marijuana and described himself as a “Real nigga from the start till the casket shut.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ellen Re: What are incoming links Dear Webby, What are those "Incoming Links" that you and others mention so often? Ellen Dear Ellen When some other site, for example Ophelia Dingbatter's site, has a link to the Humor Letter, then that is an INcoming link. My link to her site is INcoming for her.

Nothing worked. I wish I had taken a before picture. I decided to try the cleaner that I use to clean my ceramic cook-top. It worked. Right before my eyes, the dirt came clean. I figured if it could clean grease off the cook-top it could dissolve body oils too. I bought it my local grocery store. It is a paste like cleaner and comes in a tub similar to car wax. It also comes with a small scrubbing sponge. The brand name is Carbona Ceramic Cooktop Power Cleaner. I did have to use the sponge that came with it and scrub a little, but it came off in minutes.

Still looking, but here is an oldie-goldie in the meantime: Betty-Sue walked into the Emergency Room of a hospital in a small town. She walked up to a nurse and said, "Ah wants to see a Uptern." The nurse looked at her kinda funny and said, "Don't y'all mean Intern?" The girl replied, "Okay, if'n y'all say so, but ah wants a contamination." The nurse is a little confused and says, "Don't y'all mean examination?" The girl replied, "Uptern, intern, contamination, examination, ah don caire, ah ain't demonstrated for 6 months and an ah thinks ah'm stagnant. _____________________________________________________ Jill's husband was called into his bank to discuss his accounts. "Your finances are in terrible shape," the lady behind the counter stated. "Your checking account is overdrawn, your loan is overdue." "Yes, I know." said the man. "It's my wife Jill, she is out of control." "Why do you allow your wife to spend more money than you make?" asked the bank teller.. "Frankly," replied the man with a deep sigh, "because I'd rather argue with you than with her." ____________________________________________________
