A little learning is a dangerous thing but a lot of ignorance is just as bad. --- Bob Edwards ______________________________________________________ >From Roland Sally was puzzled recently by the odd messages she kept getting on her voice mail. Day after day, all she'd hear, from friends, family, and customers alike, would be their message and then they'd ALL say, "BEEP." We were talking about something else at the moment but I had her check her voice mail message anyway to see if there was a clue. She discovered the solution to the BEEP riddle when she dialed her own phone number. Her message said, "I'm not available right now, so please leave a beep after the message." ______________________________________________________ >From Max Excuses, excuses... Philadelphia's Highway Patrol officers hear all kinds of creative excuses that drivers give for speeding. Here are some of the officers' favorites. By the way, none of them worked. A man told the officer he was rushing to the hospital because had been stung by a bee, and was allergic. "There's the bee right there," he said, pointing to his dashboard. The officer looked. The bee was not only dead, but in an advanced state of decomposition. A man was doing 70 mph on the shoulder of I-95, avoiding the bumper-to-bumper traffic. After a third of a mile, he was stopped by an officer. He jumped out of the car, brushing off his pants, and told the cop he had dropped a cigarette on his lap. "I was looking for a place to park," he explained. A speeder said that he and his wife were trying to have a baby. "My wife is ovulating," he told the officer. "I have to get home right now." An officer stopped a man doing 80 mph. When he asked the driver whether he had seen the speed-limit signs, the man responded, "I went by them so fast I probably missed them." A man going south on I-95 was stopped near Washington Avenue doing 79 mph. "My engine misses, and I'm trying to clean out the carburetor," he told the officer. For good measure, he added, "If I don't go this fast, my car won't go at all." "I'm due in traffic court," one speeder said. "If I'm late they're going to enforce the bench warrant." When an officer told a speeder that the speed limit on the Schuylkill Expressway was 50 mph, the driver responded, "Officer, where have you been? It's 65 now." One speeder said simply, "I'm trying to beat my wife home. Don't ask." An elderly person was stopped after doing 73 mph. When told he was getting a ticket, he asked the officer, "Is there a senior citizen's discount?" ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gregory Zavala 23, Tuttle, Oklahoma Oklahoma Rapist Allegedly Held 3 Teens Captive At Parents House An Oklahoma man faces kidnapping and rape charges after he held three teenaged girls against their will at his parents' home over the course of two years, police say. Gregory Zavala, 23, is also charged with child sex abuse and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, according to KFOR. Investigators said Zavala lured each of the three girls to the home in Tuttle, Oklahoma, at different times between 2011 and 2013. Zavala allegedly held the teens captive for months at a time. Zavala reportedly told each girl that he would kill them and their families if they tried to escape. Authorities said two of the girls were 16 and 17 at the time of the kidnapping, and that Zavala sexually abused them on a daily basis. A third victim's age was not disclosed, but police said she was a minor. He was arrested March 19 after police received tips of criminal activity at the house, where Zavala lived with his parents, according to the Grady County Express-Star. Zavala allegedly told one of the victims, who he kept locked in his bedroom from March to May 2011, that he was trying to get her pregnant. The girl told authorities that the suspect raped her many times and that she eventually became pregnant. She was able to escape before giving birth. Another victim, who was held between January and August of 2012, said that Zavala used a belt or his hand to strangle her, and told her that the only way she was leaving his house was "in a body bag." She was also raped multiple times, became pregnant and managed to escape. The third victim in the case was a homeless woman who became Zavala's girlfriend, moving into his parents house in August 2012. According to KOKH: After moving in, the victim tells police Zavala had her vehicle towed. While the two were dating, the victim says Zavala struck her in the head with a hammer during an altercation. The hammer allegedly left a permanent deformity in the woman's skull. Tuttle police are investigating whether a missing 16-year-old who was last seen with Zavala is connected to the case. Zavala is held in Grady County Jail on $2 million bond, and is scheduled to appear in court June 9. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Maryann Re: Easter Hi Dear Webby, Years ago you made a fancy Easter page with all the statues from that place in texas, but I can't find it any more. Did you take it down? Maryann Dear Maryann It's still up there at http://webby.com/humor/i/Easter/ Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ The basketball coach stormed into the University President's office and demanded a raise right then and there. "Please," protested the college President, "you already make more than the entire History department." "Yeah, maybe so, but you don't know what I have to put up with," the coach blustered. "Look, I'll Give you an example." The coach went out into the hall and grabbed a jock who was jogging down the hallway. "Run over to my office and see if I'm there," he ordered. Three minutes later the jock returned, sweaty and out of breath. "You're not there, sir," he reported. "Oh, I see what you mean," conceded the University President, scratching his head. "I would have phoned first." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Mustard for Burn First Aid If you burn yourself, don't run for the ice. Instead, grab the mustard and slather it on the burn. Don't wet it or put ice on it, use the mustard first. You'll be shocked at how quickly it cools the burn and how much it helps the healing process. This also works for a sunburn, just apply a very thin layer.

He inspected his photo for a moment and commented to the clerk, "I was standing in line so long, I ended up looking pretty grouchy in this picture." The clerk looked at his picture closely. "It's okay," she reassured the man. "That's how you're going to look when the cops pull you over anyway." _____________________________________________________ The young teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading. After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked Morris, "Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 25 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 130 degrees, 15 minutes West longitude?" After a confused silence Morris replied, "I guess you'd be eating alone. That's halfway to Hawaii, and I can't swim." ____________________________________________________
