Half of the forest belongs to a Kentucky farmer, while the other half belongs to a Tennessee man. One day, while out for a walk in the woods, the Tennessee man comes across a wolf caught in a trap. He rushes back to his house and calls his Kentucky neighbor. "There's one of your wolves caught in a trap on my side of the forest." "How do you know it's one of *our* wolves?" the Kentucky farmer asked. "Well," the Tennessee man replied, "he's already chewed off three of his legs and he's still trapped." ______________________________________________________ Anyone who's ever ridden in a cab in Washington DC knows they're some of the world's most brazen drivers.

______________________________________________________ \ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jimmy Pierre, 35, Lake Worth, Floriduh
Fired Florida Outback employee was arrested after he returned to rob the restaurant. A Lake Worth man was arrested Monday after he allegedly tried to rob a Royal Palm Beach restaurant armed with a water pistol, according to an arrest report. Jimmy Pierre didn’t make it hard for Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies to track him down, the report said. Pierre, 35, is a former employee of the Outback Steakhouse at the Southern Palms Crossing shopping plaza, the same establishment he allegedly tried to rob Monday. The restaurant manager, who had worked with Pierre, was able to identify the alleged robber. Pierre was fired in October from his job at Outback, the report said. The manager told deputies he had arrived at the restaurant, at Southern Boulevard and Lamstein Lane, at 7 a.m. Monday to do inventory. A few minutes later, Pierre rang the front-door bell and asked the manager for a drink. Once inside, Pierre allegedly put a gun to the manager’s head and demanded he open a safe. Pierre grabbed between $1,500 and $2,000 and put it in a bag. The manager asked Pierre why he was robbing a restaurant where “everyone knows you,” the report said. Pierre said he was broke and needed money. The manager realized that Pierre was holding a toy gun and a struggle ensued. Pierre allegedly tried to burn the manager with a small torch, and then hit the manager over the head with a computer monitor. The manager sustained a bump to his head but was able to identify Pierre to deputies. Pierre is facing charges of robbery with a firearm and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. He was being held in the Palm Beach County Jail late Tuesday in lieu of $100,000 bail.
______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Lee Re: Windows shuts down during "sleep". Dear Dr. Webby, I would like to set my pc (Windows 7 Home Premium) to sleep at night but when I turn it on in the morning I find it had completely shut down and I need to restart. Help, Thanks, Lee Dear Lee Most likely you have your Power Options set to shut down after so many hours of inactivity. You can configure that any way you want. There are also additional power options with some anti virus programs, that shut down the machine when finished scanning. Shutting down is actually not a bad idea. Nothing can happen or invade the machine, when it is shut down, and the fans don't suck dust bunnies into the machine. Let it shut down, and just start it up again while you get a coffee. Have FUN!

I'll get you some that is." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with thecost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Valentine's Day Eggs This is a fun and adorable edible craft I learned from my mother. She's been doing this since she was a little kid. All you need are a few household items. :) Approximate Time: 45 minutes Supplies: pot of water eggs straws or chopsticks flexible cardboard (packaged food box or cereal box is good) wax paper or plastic wrap food dye (optional) Steps: Place eggs in pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil. Remove from burner. Cover pot. Let eggs sit in hot water about 10-12 minutes. Drain immediately and cool in cold running water or in bowl of ice. Peel eggs. Fold your piece of cardboard into a V shape like a greeting card. Line with wax paper or plastic wrap. Put in your egg. To make a heart shape, press a chopstick or straw down on the top of peeled egg and secure the entire thing with rubber bands. Pop in the fridge for 30 minutes. To make a flower, wrap your peeled egg egg in plastic wrap and press four chopsticks into the sides, evenly. Secure with rubber bands. Pop in the fridge for 30 minutes. To make the smiley faces, stick peeled egg in a tri-folded piece of cardboard lined with wax paper or plastic wrap and secure tightly with rubber bands. Pop in fridge for 30 minutes. If you like you can further decorate. For the smiley faces, add toasted sesame seeds for eyes and teeny tiny wedges of egg white for lips. You can also use a couple drops of red food colouring in a cup of water to dye the eggs pink before you squeeze them into heart shapes. Improvise! It's fun! :) Source: My ThriftyMum!

_____________________________________________________ I gaze at the brilliant moon. The same one, I think to myself, at which Socrates, Aristotle, and Plato gazed. Suddenly, I imagine they appear beside me. I tell Socrates about the national debate over one's right to die and wonder at the constancy of the human condition. I tell Plato that I live in the country that has come closest to Utopia and I show him a copy of the Constitution. I tell Aristotle that we have found many more than four basic elements and I show him a periodic table. Then I get a box of kitchen matches and strike one. They gasp with wonder. We spend the rest of the night lighting farts. ___________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ There was this man who had a dog which he was attempting to train, but alas had very little success. He was on the verge of despair when he happened across a very charismatic evangelist. He unburdened his soul to the preacher, who promptly informed him to leave the dog with him, and he would have it trained in a jiffy. The next day the man returns, and asks how the evangelist got on. The reply was positive, and the evangelist calls the dog to give a demonstration. Picking up a stick, he throws it and says, "Fetch." Instantly the dog takes off, grabs the stick and returns. The evangelist says, "Drop" and the dog drops the stick at his feet. "Roll over," and the dog rolls over. By this time the dog's owner is very excited, and asks if he can have a go. "Sure," replies the evangelist. "Heel!" says the owner and the dog lifts one paw, places it on the man's forehead and says, "I command this sickness to leave you..." ____________________________________________________ A small group of people were watching from the sidewalk as a huge front-end-loader swiftly excavated the basement hole for a house and neatly stacked the dirt in a huge pile on the side. One of the people complained: "He is taking food out of the mouths of the children of good Union people! Instead of one capitalist getting rich in an hour, twenty Uninon men could earn a living in that hole with shovels and wheelbarrows for a whole month!" A bystander commented: "Yeah, or two years if they use soup spoons!" ____________________________________________________
