Concerned about this, a local woman called on the manager and asked him, "Why is it you limit your employees to married men? Is it because you think women are weak, dumb, cantankerous...or what?" "Not at all, Ma'am," the manager replied. "It is because our employees are used to obeying orders, are accustomed to being shoved around, know how to keep their mouths shut and don't pout when I yell at them." ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Noella for this picture: ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ >Reported by Lillemor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Johnathon Holmes, 35, Sheffield, England
Sex attacker left beaten up after woman fights back A violent sex fiend was left bruised and bloodied after trying to rape a woman who courageously refused to go down without a fight. Johnathon Holmes, 35, jumped the woman on the streets of Sheffield, England, last month -- but ended up having to escape his own beastly attack with two black eyes and numerous gashes to his face, The Mirror reported. On Tuesday, the Sheffield man pleaded guilty to the Nov. 1 attack and was sentenced to four and a half years in prison, according to The Mirror. The woman testified in court that he followed her in the early morning hours for over a mile before pouncing on her and knocking her into some bushes. Fortunately for her, she realized she was being followed and prepared herself by placing her car keys in her hand as a potential weapon, she testified. She had also pulled out her phone to call her partner. As Holmes forced her on her back and climbed on top of her, he told her, “you are going to enjoy this,” she said. He then thrust his tongue into her mouth, and she chomped down on it as hard as she could. When he relaxed his grip she maneuvered herself on top of him and, with her keys pressed to his neck, continued screaming for help, and just generally beat the crap out of the big bully, she told the court. Two passers-by heard her cries and likely prompted his attempt to flee, Prosecutor Rachael Harrison said, according to The Sheffield Star. But as he jumped over some railings, he injured himself some more.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Denise Re: Laptop sound Dear Webby, I got a laptop for the anniversary, with that wonky W10 on it, but I used your Classic Shell to get the W7 look and feel again. I am not stupid. However, the sound is still very crappy. I can do better with a comb and some parchment paper. How can I fix the zilly Kazoo? Denise Dear Denise You can't. With the cheap little squeakers in there, what you hear now is the best you will ever get out of that machine. To get decent sound you have to add external speakers, preferably amplified ones. there are amplified speakers, that are made to work with computers. Logitech makes some very good ones. You can also go to the local Pawn show and see what they got. Look for a boom box or living room stereo, that has AUX input lugs or sockets, originally intended for record player or external tape decks. Then ask for a cable to connect from the GREEN socket of the laptop, 1/8" stereo, to the boom box or house stereo. Connect, adjust the volume way down to minimize damage to your fine crystal, and you are all set. Unlike the cheap squeakers in laptops, quite often the built in microphone is good enough so that the Microsoft and the CIA can hear every whisper in the room, and is plenty good enough for video conferencing. You CAN attach a head set or boom microphone. That cuts off the CIA snooper and gives the focus to the external microphone. If you don't want the CIA and Snowden to record what you do with the postman, put the external microphone in front of the radio. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________ The above joke reminds me of this fact: Giant Canadian/US retailer Home Depot has issued a company policy that no store is to do any more business with the US government or its representatives. Why? They prefer to hire people with experience in construction and building trades or their spouses who generally know as much about hardware, people who speak the local language fluently, and people who are physically in good enough shape to be able to assist customers with loading their purchases. However, if they sell above a certain amount of stuff to the US government, they fall under contractor or supplier status and have to employ according to government regulations. Right now that would mean firing a lot of women and hire more men, even if they are in no shape to lift a bag of cement that is as heavy as a kid, or don't know what cement is. They would have to fire local people who live within walking distance of the store and hire a certain percentage of new immigrants, etc., etc. Therefore, when they had to choose between customer service as usual versus government style, they decided to tell the governement to go shop elsewhere. ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Double Chocolate Toffee Cookies Ingredients: 3/4 cup cocoa 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 tsp salt 1 cup butter, softened 2/3 cup granulated sugar 2/3 cup packed, brown sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 2 eggs 1/2 cup chocolate chips 1/2 cup toffee bits Steps: Preheat oven to 350º F.

"How would you feel," she asked, "if someone showed up on your doorstep who looked very different, spoke in a strange way that you don't understand, and wore weird and unusual clothes? Wouldn't you be a bit scared?" "Nah," one girl answered, "That pretty well describes Bozo, my sister's boyfriend, and I've beaten him up three times already." ____________________________________________________ The FBI issued a warning, in a Lancaster County, Pennsylvania newspaper, that they suspect a terrorist may be hiding in the Amish community here.
