The mother smiled reassuringly at her son. "You don't have to be afraid of the dark," she explained. "Jesus is out there. He'll look after you and protect you." The little boy looked at his mother real hard and asked, "Are you sure He's out there?" "Yes, I'm sure. He is everywhere, and He is always ready to help you when you need Him," she said. The little boy thought about that for a minute and then went to the back door and cracked it a little. Peering out into the darkness, he called, "Jesus?

Thanks to Noella for reporting this bonehead! An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Alfonsa Loftin, of West Palm Beach, 40, West Palm Beach, Floriduh
Florida man arrested for tossing 'deadly urine' at cop A Florida man is behind bars after being accused of tossing a liter of "deadly urine" at a police officer. Alfonsa Loftin, of West Palm Beach, was arrested Tuesday morning after a Palm Beach County deputy responded to a call at his house. When the officer knocked on the 40-year-old man's door, the suspect allegedly greeted him with a big splash of urine from a liter bottle, according to the Palm Beach Post. It is unclear who or what supplied the urine. Police are describing the pee as a "deadly weapon" because urine can cause respiratory infections or permanent bodily harm, according to the report. Loftin then barricaded himself in his house for several hours. Police tried unsuccessfully for several hours to get Loftin to surrender before they kicked a hole in his door and shot him with a stun gun. Police attempted to arrest Loftin, but the 6-foot, 3-inch, 300-pound suspect allegedly resisted by kicking, flailing and tossing more urine, according to WPBF.com. Police said Loftin threw the open one-liter bottle at deputies before grabbing a K-9 officer by the head. That is probably when they tenderized him. They don't like it at all when somebody touches their K-9. Loftin was arrested on two counts of aggravated battery on a police officer and two counts of resisting an officer with violence. He remains in the Palm Beach County Jail on $36,000 bond.

It is way cheaper than the stuff at the hobby shops! If you add alum, it will eventually harden on its own. If not, you can bake it and you are ready to paint your project and display it. Have fun! Approximate Time: a few minutes Yield: 1 large ball Supplies: 1 1/2 cup salt 4 cups white flour 1 1/2 cup warm water, more if needed 1 tsp alum, for self hardening, optional Steps: Put your salt and flour in a large bowl. Mix well. Add your water, mix well. Turn out onto the table and this is what you should have. I added about 6 tablespoons more water. Whatever you do, add it gradually. Too much water will ruin your clay. Knead till smooth, smiley face optional. If you have added alum, simply leave your project out in the open air and it will eventually harden. If not, bake small shapes in a 300 degree F oven for 30-40 minutes, or until hard. Store unused clay in an airtight container.

_____________________________________________________ While my son was on board the Navy carrier USS GEORGE WASHINGTON, the air wing was busy with training missions. After talking to a pilot, one air-traffic controller accidentally left his microphone on and remarked to a nearby buddy, "That guy sounded just like Elmer Fudd." The airwaves got strangely quiet as everyone listened, realizing that the pilot had also heard the comment. After about ten seconds, the pilot broke the silence by announcing, "Be vewy, vewy quiet. We awe hunting submaweenes." ___________________________________________________

In Canada they say: "It's 11 o'clock. Do you kow where the beer is?" In England they say: "Its 11 o'clock. Do you know where your wife is? In France they say "It's 11o'clock. Do you know where your husband is?" In Afghanistan they say:" Its 11 o'clock do you know what time it is?" ____________________________________________________
