Today's Bonehead Award goes to an Iowa anti-gun sheriff who shot his own hand Details at Boneheads ______________________________________________________ Today, December 22, in 1775 A Continental naval fleet was organized in the rebellious American colonies under the command of Ezek Hopkins. History ______________________________________________________ There are many who dare not kill themselves for fear of what the neighbors will say. --- Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974) ______________________________________________________ > From Billy B When my wife had to rush to the hospital unexpectedly, she asked me to bring her a few items from home. One item on her list was "comfortable underwear." Not sure what she considers comfortable, I asked, "How will I know which ones to pick?" "Hold them up and imagine them on me," she answered. "If you smile, put them back and pick some different ones." ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A man is talking to the family doctor. "Doc, I think my wife's going deaf." The doctor answers, "Well, here's something you can try on her to test her hearing. Stand some distance away from her and ask her a question. If she doesn't answer, move a little closer and ask again. Keep repeating this until she answers. Then you'll be able to tell just how hard of hearing she really is." The man goes home and tries it out. He walks in the door and says, "Honey, what's for dinner?" He doesn't hear an answer, so he moves closer to her. "Honey, what's for dinner?" Still no answer. He repeats this several times, until he's standing just a few feet away from her. Finally, she turns around and screams at him: "For the eleventh time, I said we're having MEATLOAF!" ______________________________________________________ A Man goes to see the Rabbi. "Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it." The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?" The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me." The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "I'm sure you're wrong." The man pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me. What should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what, let me talk to her. I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know." A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I called your wife. I was on the phone for five hours. You want my advice?" The man anxiously says, "Yes, please." "Take the poison!" ______________________________________________________ Heirloom Big Book Of Classic Christmas Stories 2nd Edition with more stories and pictures $10 instant download ______________________________________________________ From Noella Morning fog near Bolivar, MO. 9-30-05 ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mike Johnstone, , Des Moines County, Iowa
Iowa anti-gun sheriff who shot his own hand Anti-gun Sheriff Mike Johnstone in Des Moines County, Iowa shot himself in the hand. This is the sheriff that’s known for pushing the anti-gun lie that concealed carry will lead to “wild-west” shootouts. Mike Johnstone didn’t clear his personally owned firearm properly while he was cleaning it at his home. The firearm went off and shot him in the hand. Smooth move buddy. Seems like anti-gun and anti-hunting “activists” are always getting themselves into trouble. The report did not state whom or what he had shot with his personal handgun, just that he was preparing to clean it.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Marie Re: Is PayPal safe? Dear Webby, I heard a lot of horror stories about PayPal, but you seem to be using it without trouble. What's the real story about it? I need some way to accept money for my eBook. Marie Dear Marie Yes, it might be indeed terrible if you don't sign up for it, or if you don't read the instructions. However, if you actually sign up, which is simple and straightforward, and follow basic instructions, it works very well. Look at any eBook for sale on the net, for example my book of all the classic Christmas Stories, that are slowly getting lost. Have you been told every one of them? Have you read every one of them to your kids or grandkids? That is a good example for a simple PayPal button. When a buyer clicks on it, they can pay with a credit/debit card or their PayPal balance, and when they do, the "Thank-You" page gives them the download, and they can instantly download it. It can't be any simpler for the buyer. For the seller it is quite simple too. You just step through and follow the instructions. Each step has explanations, if you need them. You just make a different button for each eBook, that you sell. Don't forget, though, you DO need a web site to put your buttons on. While the buttons work on many email programs, they are blocked by a few. For those, you just send the buyers to a page, where you got your button. Go ahead and click on my eBook and see how it works. The book clickthrough in the email just gets you to the page, where the real PayPal button is. On the web it works for everybody, no matter which email program they use. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Joe Bob, John Boy and Bubba were moving furniture. While Joe Bob and John Boy were struggling with a particularly heavy oak wardrobe, Joe Bob noticed that Bubba was nowhere in sight. "John Boy, where's Bubba?" asked Joe Bob. "That big galoot should be helping us with this thing." "He is helping," said John Boy. "He's inside holding the clothes hangers in place!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Brownie Bowls With this dessert, you can eat the dish!

Speaking about a specific condition, she asked, "How would you diagnose a patient who walks back and forth screaming at the top of his lungs one minute, then sits in a chair weeping uncontrollably the next?" A young man in the back of the room raised his hand and said, "A basket ball coach?" ___________________________________________________
Christmas Eve Sarajevo
____________________________________________________ An English teacher often wrote little notes on student assignments. He was working late one night, and as the hours passed, his handwriting deteriorated. The next day a student came to him after class with her essay he had corrected. "I can't make out this comment you wrote on my paper." The teacher took the paper, and after squinting at it for a minute, sheepishly replied, "It says that you need to write more legibly!" ____________________________________________________ On a Southwest Airlines flight, just after a very hard landing in Salt Lake City, the flight attendant came on the intercom and said, "That was quite a bump, and I know what y'all are thinking. I'm here to tell you it wasn't the airline's fault, it wasn't the pilot's fault, it wasn't the flight attendant's fault . . . it was the asphalt!" ____________________________________________________
