"Back ladies, back !" cried the leader, "There's a very dangerous beast out there!" But it was too late, several of the kids had more-or-less seen all. They asked their leader what was happening. "Well, if you... er... must know, they were practicing a brand new form of artificial respiration." "WOW !" exclaimed the oldest of the group.

They turned south, but another war party appeared. They turned east and met another party of 100. They turned west as their last remaining hope and saw a party of 500. The Lone Ranger turned to his friend and said, "Well, Tonto, this is the end, there's not much we can do." Tonto looked back at the Lone Ranger. "What you mean WE, white man?" ______________________________________________________ Once upon a time,.... Margaret Thatcher and her Cabinet were meeting over lunch to discuss an important bit of impending legislation. "And what will you have, Madam?" asked the waiter, coming over with his notepad. "I'll have the Beef Wellington," replied the Prime Minister promptly, eager to get on with the business at hand. "And, for the vegetables?" continued the waiter politely. Thatcher replied briskly, "They'll have the same." ______________________________________________________ Heirloom Big Book Of Classic Christmas Stories 2nd Edition with more stories and pictures $10 instant download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to dad for this picture: These bloomed today, like every December. ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jasper Harrison, 47, Edgewater, Florida
Paranoid Florida man was arrested after he called 911 on himself. A Florida man, accused of growing marijuana in a storage unit was arrested after he called 911 on himself. According to the Orlando Sentinel, Jasper Harrison was in the storage unit when he heard a helicopter hovering over the area in Edgewater, Florida. Worried that he’d soon be arrested, he called 911. “I’m the guy they’re looking for,” he told the dispatcher. As it turned out, police weren’t in the area looking for Harrison. Instead, they were there investigating the suspicious but unrelated death of a man on the same street. The helicopter Harrison heard while in the storage unit was that of a television station reporting on the suspicious death, police say. When they responded to the storage unit, police found marijuana growing inside it. He now faces charges of cultivating cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school, and possession with intent to sell. He was released from jail on bond.

Since I had never heard of any money give-away at FaceBook, I did not respond yet. What should I do? Peter Dear Peter Just tell her to deposit it into your PayPal account. Don't give out any bank information or street address or phone number or email address, just your PayPal address. Since it is just a cheap crook, feel free to get as ornery and obnoxious as you want. Tell her that if she is not a lying crook in Nigeria or Ghana or Russia, to stop her BS and deposit YOUR money into your PayPal account. She will go away. Have FUN! DearWebby A honeymooning couple had purchased a talking parrot and taken it to their room, where much to the groom's annoyance, the bird kept up a running commentary on their love-making. Finally the groom threw a large towel over the cage and threatened to give the parrot to the zoo if he didn't quit it. The next morning, packing to return home, the couple couldn't close a large suitcase. The groom said, "Darling, you get on top and I'll try." That didn't work. Figuring they needed more weight on the lid, she said, "Sweetheart, you get on top and I'll try." Still no success. Then he said, "Look. Let's both get on top and try." At that point the parrot pulled away the towel with his beak and said, "Zoo or no zoo, both on top, THAT I gotta see!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Quick and Easy Poached Eggs Fill a pot half way with water and bring to a boil. Spray the inside of a baggie with cooking spray and break one or more eggs into the baggie. Squeeze out most of the air while zipping the baggie closed. Drop the baggie into the pot of water reducing heat to medium/low and cover. I cooked two eggs for 5 minutes but increase/decrease time according to number of eggs being poached. The baggie allows for a good visual check during cooking. When the eggs are done, remove the baggie from the water using tongs. Open baggie carefully - contents will be hot - and simply pour the eggs out. No more stringy whites clinging to the inside of the pot!

____________________________________________________ This moose be Alaska! ____________________________________________________ A man walks into a bar with a duck and a big bisquit tin. He sets the duck on top of the biscuit box on the bar and the duck begins dancing. The barman finds this rather interesting, as do the rest of the patrons in the bar. They all gather around the duck and watch it for a long time. While everyone is watching the duck dance, they buy more drinks from the bar. By the end of the night, the bar is full of people watching this amazing duck, still dancing and letting out an odd quack now and again. The barman realizes that he hasn't had business this good in a long time. Business is so good, in fact, that he offers to buy the duck from the man. The man tells the bartender that he can have the duck for 500 pounds. The barman thinks it is a bit expensive, but agrees to buy the duck anyway. After selling the duck, the man goes home, leaving a crowded pub watching his dancing duck. Later that night, the man gets a telephone call from the barman, who exclaims that the duck is a great success and that he has earned his money back in the amount of drinks he has sold. Then the barman says, "There is one thing, though. How do you get the duck to stop dancing?" And the man says, "Oh, it's simple. Just take the lid of the biscuit box and blow out the candle." ____________________________________________________
