Treat all disasters as if they were trivialities but never treat a triviality as if it were a disaster. --- Quentin Crisp ______________________________________________________ I accompanied my husband when he went to get a haircut. Reading a magazine, I found a hairstyle I liked for myself, and I asked the receptionist if I could take the magazine next door to make a copy of the photo. "Leave some ID, a driver's license or a credit card," she said. "But my husband is here getting a haircut," I explained. "Yes," she replied. "But I need something you'll come back for." ______________________________________________________ After spending 3-1/2 hours enduring the long lines, surly clerks and insane regulations at the department of motor vehicles, a lady stopped at a toy store to pick up a gift for her son. She brought her selection - a baseball bat to the cash register. "Cash or charge," the clerk asked. "Cash," she snapped. Then apologizing for her rudeness, she explained, " I've spent the afternoon at the motor-vehicle bureau. I am not too sane right now!!" "Shall I gift -wrap the bat?" the clerk asked sweetly, "Or are you going back?" ______________________________________________________ Click through for the big picture Argentinian finch

Reported by Walter, The Stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Hayley King, 22, Columbia, South Carolina
College student caught on surveillance camera poisoning roommates' food A University of South Carolina student faces charges after she was caught on camera spitting and putting window cleaner in her roommates' food. In the video, 22-year-old Hayley King can be seen taking out containers of food from the refrigerator shared with two other women in an off-campus house. King can then be seen allegedly spraying Windex on the food and pouring glass cleaner into the containers, according WIS-TV. One of the roommates said that she ate out of a container that had been diluted with spit and Windex, according to The State. King and her roommates were having multiple altercations leading up to the incident, according to the police report. King's other roommates had been trying to get her to move out because of the fight, but King had refused to leave. The other roommates said they installed the surveillance cameras out of concern over what King may have been doing at the house in their absence. A police investigator contacted King after viewing the video, where the student "confessed to the incident," according to the police report. "The aftermath...caused me to fall behind in my classes," one of King's roommates told WIS-TV. "I was forced to switch out of one of my courses because I was so distracted with everything going on. This not only affected me physically, having to deal with the repercussions of the incident, but also mentally from the anxiety that came along with it." King has been charged with unlawful, malicious tampering with human drug product or food -- a Class C Felony -- and could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, according to WIS-TV. King was released a day after her arrest after posting a $5,000 bond.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Tammy Re: Copying with the mouse Dear Webby, You have mentioned occasionally that you copy and paste with your mouse. What kind of mouse will I need to be able to do that? Thanks Tammy Dear Tammy Any mouse with five or more buttons will do that. Cheapest one seems to be Gigabit at NewEgg. Highest quality is probably the one from Logitech. Naturally, that one is more expensive. So is the one from Microsoft. Unless the 7 button Gigabit is not working well for you, it is a very good mouse. Interesting is the ability to change resolution on the fly. That is handy for working on large graphics, and probably also for any flight simulator or space war games. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ Anthony and Kathy married. Anthony thought this would be a modern marriage which meant equal roles for equal partners. So, the first morning back from their honeymoon, Anthony brought Kathy breakfast in bed. Kathy wasn't impressed with his culinary skills, however. She looked disdainfully at the tray, and snorted, "A poached egg? I wanted scrambled!" Undaunted, the next morning, Anthony brought her a scrambled egg. Kathy wasn't having any of it. "Why can't I have some variety? I wanted poached this morning!" Determined to please Kathy, the next morning he brought her two eggs - one scrambled and one poached. "Here, my love... enjoy!" Kathy was furious, "You Bozo, you scrambled the wrong egg!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Extend the Shelf Life of Bananas When you get home from grocery shopping, separate all the bananas from the bunch and place in a bowl or basket.
