It was most noticeable to her when she squeezed into a pair of her old blue jeans. Wondering if the added weight was noticeable to everyone else, she asked her husband, "Honey, do these jeans make me look like the side of the house?" "No, dear, not at all," he replied. "Our house isn't blue." ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ A certain motivational speaker snuck out the back stage exit for a smoke while an assistant was showing a short audivisual presentation. Out there, huddled against the rain under the shelter of the stage loading dock were some members of a school board meeting who had gone outside "for some fresh air". One of them recognized him by his bright name tag and instantly struck up a conversation as if she was familiar with him. "Tell me," she asked, "how do you detect in somebody whether they have potential for success or not?" "Nothing is easier," he replied. "You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If he hesitates, that puts you on the track." "What sort of question?" "Well, you might ask him, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?' She thought a moment, then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Paula Jay Ernst, 51, Pasco, Floriduh Pasco woman arrested after she uses ‘defecated pants’ as excuse for stealing $199 in groceries from Publix Deputies say a Land O’ Lakes woman used reusable grocery bags to steal $199 worth of groceries from a Hernando Publix grocery store and then claimed she walked out of the store without paying because she had crapped in her pants. On Friday, Jan. 29, Publix workers saw Paula Jay Ernst, 51, selecting items and putting them in her shopping cart at the Public located at 14371 Spring Hill Drive. She then allegedly took the groceries from her shopping cart and put them into reusable Publix shopping bags, which she had brought with her. Hernando County Sheriff’s Office detectives say Ernst walked out of the store without paying for the groceries. The incident was recorded by surveillance cameras. Publix employees wrote down Ernst’s license plate number. She was then contacted at her home by telephone and agreed to return to the store. After she was arrested, Ernst told deputies she did not mean to steal the items and walked out of the store because she had defecated in her pants, according to an arrest affidavit. Ernst was charged with shoplifting and booked into the Hernando County Jail. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Frieda Re: Laptop and Blackberry Dear Webby Thanks so much for all your help over the years. This I think is a 3-fold question. First, just got a new Blackberry Classic phone which has Blackberry Blend on it to integrate with my computer. My computer is running on Windows XP. Seems that Blackberry Blend and Windows XP don't blend! So can't use Blackberry Blend between phone and computer. My tower computer is almost 15 years old. It's been fixed/updated, etc. many times. So, now I'm thinking with all this new technology that I just might as well buy a laptop. My next question is - which one? I don't watch movies, I do listen to some music. It's mainly used for emails, Facebook, banking, online shopping , office work, spreadsheets etc. Guess that was only 2 questions! lol! So, new laptop which one to accommodate BlackerryBlend and my new Blackberry Classic phone. Thanks again for your help, Wendy (Gwen) Dear Wendy Pretty well any new laptop should be able to handle that. Look at what DELL has to offer. They have the best warranty and online support. Haggle out the details over the phone. Their number is free. They will of course try to sell you a bigger machine than necessary, but you can haggle them down to your intended budget. You can also try Acer. They have some models with very large screens, for example the V3 or the e come with 17.3" screens. They are heavy klunkers intended for office use, not for yuppies to take them to Starbucks. However, for a home office they are just fine. I have a G model, that I got about 6 years ago, which I have lugged through many deserts and up many a mountain, and it is still working fine. You need a back-pack style carry case and be in fairly good shape to lug them through a large airport, but in your case, to replace the desktop in your home, they would be just fine. Because all the yuppies want small and light models suitable for the small tables at Starbucks, these big and heavy clunkers frequently go on sale at Staples and similar stores. I got mine for $330. Once you have narrowed your choices down online, check your local stores. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Judi was almost crazy with her three kids. She complained to her best friend, "They're driving me nuts. Such pests, they give me no rest and I'm half-way to the nut hatch." "What you need is a playpen to separate the kids from yourself," her friend said. So Judi bought a playpen. A few days later, her friend called to ask how things were going. "Superb! I can't believe it," Judi said. "I get into that pen and I can answer all of my mail before the first one climbs over it!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Keep Asparagus Fresh Put your asparagus upright in a couple of inches of water.

____________________________________________________ An extremely shy fellow once brought his date a bouquet of flowers. She threw her arms around him and kissed him long and hard. After the kiss, he turned and bolted for the door. She exclaimed, "Oh! I'm sorry. I didn't mean to offend you." "You didn't!" he replied. "I'm just going to run to the the cemetery to get more flowers!" ____________________________________________________ Deep in the woods of Tennessee on a country road, a preacher hit and killed a dog. The dog's owner stood nearby, a gun in his hand.The preacher looks at the owner sheepishly and says, "Looks as if I killed your dog." "Sure does." "I'm sorry. Was it a valuable dog?" "I wouldn't say that." "Well, suppose I gave you a hundred dollars. Would that be enough?" "Well, I don't know." "Two hundred dollars. That should do it." "Sounds good." The preacher reached into his pocket and came up with the money. Pressing it into the man's hand, he said, "I'm sorry I spoiled your plans to go hunting." "I wasn't going hunting. The vet told me to take that mangy mutt out to the woods and put him out of his misery, cause pills don't help him no more." ____________________________________________________
