The operation went well, and as the groggy man regained consciousness, he was reassured by a Sister of Mercy waiting by his bed. "Mr. Smith, you're going to be just fine," the nun said while patting his hand. "We do have to know, however, how you intend to pay for your stay here. Are you covered by insurance?" "No, I'm not," the man whispered hoarsely. "Can you pay in cash?" "I'm afraid I can't, Sister." "Do you have any close relatives, then?" "Just my sister in New Mexico," replied, "but she's a spinster nun." "Nuns are not spinsters, Mr. Smith," the nun replied. "They are married to God." "Okay," the man said with a smile, "then bill my brother-in-law." ______________________________________________________ The boss at the pub went up to the bartender and asked, "Have you been fooling around with the waitress?!"

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bryan Alwine, 27, Muncie, Indiana
Indiana man arrested after he assaulted girlfriend because she bought the wrong kind of toilet paper An Indiana man is facing a domestic battery charge after allegedly throwing his girlfriend to the ground during an argument over toilet paper, cops say. According to a Muncie Police Department report, the victim told cops that Bryan Alwine, 27, pushed her so hard that she “flew” and landed in the street outside the home they share with their daughter. The duo had been arguing, the victim said, “over toilet paper.” Alwine was allegedly upset because the victim had not purchased his preferred brand of toilet paper. As first reported by The Star Press, the woman “further stated that Bryan is very specific on what he likes to use and that he began yelling at her while they were still inside the home.” Officers responding to a 911 call Sunday night noted that the woman, who appeared “very frightened and nervous,” had a bloody elbow and a scratched knee. A witness who called police said that she saw Alwine “put his hands on” the victim and throw her to the ground. Alwine, pictured above, was arrested for felony domestic battery. He was freed from jail Tuesday after posting $5000 bond. Alwine has previously been arrested for threatening to kill the victim, who told police that a “history of violence” between the couple has “gone on for several years.” Muncie police reported that the victim is not being cooperative with investigators.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ann Re: Mail from me Dear Webby, I get all kinds of mail that looks as if I had sent it, but is definitely not from me. I do send mail to myself frequently to file and keep, but these mails are just spam or scams. What can I do to stop that nuisance aside from changing my Yahoo address? Ann Dear Ann Changing your Yahoo address would help for a while, but sooner or later that nuisance will start again. We all get those spam and scam mails. I use MailWasher With that I make filters to for example mail FROM humor@webby.com that DOES NOT CONTAIN "Humor: " in the subject line then delete it on the server, automatically, without even showing it in the list. That way, when somebody sends a mail pretending to be from humor@webby.com, but doesn't have "Humor: " in the subject line, it gets murdered in the dark and sent straight to hell. You can send mail to humor@webby.com, just don't pretend to BE humor@webby.com. You can have all kinds of code words that will legitimize an email, for example DOES NOT CONTAIN RegEx "Recip|Prayr|Shoplis|Gardn" then nuke it on the server. You can use all the "Regular Expressions" if you want, but usually you just use the pipe | to add a bunch of alternates instead of making separate filters for them. Then after that you put the appropriate keyword in the subject line, and that email will be safe. That trick also helps you to organize your emails and automatically send mails with "Recip" in the subject line into your Recipe mailbox. Most email programs let you do that. So you win twice! Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ A Navy Chief ('which Navy' will go unspecified) was being court-martialed for an incident where he was found to be chased by a young lady through the hallways of the hotel in which they were both staying. Neither of them were wearing anything. The charge was that of "being out of uniform." The Chief's lawyer argued that the officer was not out of uniform, as the regulations read: "A Naval officer must be at all times appropriately attired for the activity in which he is engaged." The charges were dismissed. --------- Was that you, Jim? ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Homemade Stainless Steel Cleaner Mix 1/4 cup vinegar, 2 tbsp baking soda, and 1/8 cup hydrogen peroxide. Add 4-6 cups hot water. Use a clean cloth. Dip cloth in solution and wring out, leaving cloth a little sloppy. Wipe down stainless steel with cloth. Allow to sit a minute. Wipe down with a dry cloth. Then wipe with a microfiber cloth. Very shiny! This solution also works to mop linoleum and tile floors and to clean the bathroom! By kattt [1] ______________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ It's a good thing we UNsubscribed Ms Burkenheimer. She would probably consider this joke dirty. Ed worked for a while at a Wal-Mart store, selling sporting goods. As an employee of Wal-Mart you are sometimes required to make store-wide announcements, e.g., "I have a customer in hardware who needs assistance at the paint counter." One night a timid female voice came over the intercom system with the following message: "I have a customer by the balls in toys and need assistance." ___________________________________________________

true facts about the octopus (Not to be put in, but I love this guy :-)
____________________________________________________ The first time I heard the following story, it was told to me about 20 years ago by Danny, a former carpet layer. Knowing what he smoked, I actually believed him. According to his story, Danny had just finished installing carpet for a lady. He stepped out into the hallway for a smoke, only to realize he'd lost his cigarettes. He rummaged in his toolbox and found a butt. While he smoked that he surveyed the just finished room and spotted a bump in the carpet in the middle of the room. "No sense pulling up the entire floor for one pack of smokes," he said to himself. He proceeded to get out his big rubber hammer and flattened the hump. As he was cleaning up, the lady came in. "Here," she said, handing him his pack of cigarettes. "I found them in the stairway. Now, if only I could find my gerbil." ____________________________________________________ Noella's Blunders It’s a personal rule of mine to never litter. My husband chewed tobacco. While out driving a few years ago we had a cup with his nasty stuff in it and it turned over in the car. We cleaned it up as best we could - no napkins - and our first thought was get rid of this cup so it doesn’t happen again. We're in the convertible anyway - he can spit out the window. I’m thinking - we’re so deep in the countryside now, no one will know if I throw it. The trees were very close, and I decided to wait for an opening so the cup wouldn’t bounce back into our car. As soon as we came to one, I threw, right into the face of a farmer plowing his field! Noella ____________________________________________________
