Today's Bonehead Award AND a Darwin Award goes to a Florida zoo employee killed while attempting to rape an alligator Details at Boneheads ______________________________________________________ Today, March 14, in 1489 Catherine Cornaro, Queen of Cyprus, sold her kingdom to Venice. She was the last of the Lusignan dynasty. ______________________________________________________ "Whatever it is the government does, sensible Americans would prefer that the government do it to somebody else." --- PJ Orourke Elections are won by men and women chiefly because most people vote against somebody rather than for somebody. --- Franklin P.

They were always getting into trouble, and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons would get the blame. The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed and asked to see them individually. So, the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon. The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?" They boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open. The clergyman repeated the question. "Where is God?" Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. So, the clergyman raised his voice some more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed, "Where is God!?" The boy screamed and bolted from the room. He ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?" The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied: "We are in real BIG trouble this time! God is missing, and they think we did it!" ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD AND a Darwin A ward has been earned by Jimmy Olsen 24, Naples, Floriduh Florida zoo employee killed while attempting to rape a young alligator A zoo keeper was killed this morning in the alligator enclosure of the Naples Zoo, while he was attempting to sexually assault a 12 foot long reptile. According to Captain Henri White, spokesman of the Naples Police Department, 24-year old Jimmy Olsen was engaged in full sexual intercourse with one of the younger reptiles, when he was surprised by one of the larger animals which attacked from behind. The young man was caught by the throat by the alligator, who dragged him underwater and drowned him. Jimmy Olsen’s death took place around 6:00 AM this morning, but his disappearance was noticed only an hour later by other employees. They finally discovered his dismembered body floating in the pool of the alligator enclosure around 8:30. “The images captured by the security cameras show that Mr Olsen had clearly placed himself in a very vulnerable position,” Captain White told reporters. “He had his pants around his knees and was lying down on top of one the animals, with his back to the others. The poor guy didn’t stand a chance! We can see him being dragged in the water, then he disappears from sight. He was probably dead within thirty seconds of the attack.” ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Patricia Re: Thumbnail maker Dear Webby I need a program for making thumbnails of a huge number of pictures. And NO, it can not be anything as dangerous as a paint program, it has to be simple and hubby-proof and not have the option of accidentally destroying the original by overwriting it with a little thumbnail. Also, I don't want a program that makes proof sheets because there will have to be some serious weeding out first. Just something simple and fast that will process a drive or a directory full of pictures in one batch and not need any messing around with individual pictures. Thanks Patricia Dear Patricia For that I would recommend Oscar's Thumb-Maker. You can download it free from http://www.mediachance.com/free/thumber.htm It's at the right hand bottom of that page. The left side of that page is just the story of why Oscar wrote that thumbnail maker. The trick with that program is to FIRST make a folder where you want it to store the thumbnails. The rest is easy. Browse to the drive or directory that has the originals, select that. Browse to the destination directory and select that. Choose the size, and hit start. It takes about 1/2 to 3/4 of a second per picture, and when it stops flashing the thumbnails in a high speed slide show, it is done. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ It was Judi's first plane trip. Boarding the aircraft she settled into a window seat in the smoking section. A man came over and politely said, "Ma'am, you're in my seat." "Go away and find another seat!" Judi replied. He said, "Okay, fine, you fly the plane." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Removing the Inside of an Egg By Katherine Main [1 Post] Stick a hole in each end of the egg with a needle being careful not to crack the egg as you slowly get the hole started with the needle. You then blow on one end of the raw egg and the egg will go through the other end if the hole is as large as the head of a pin. Hold over a bowl. You can use the eggs to make scrambled eggs if you are doing a lot. This is the only method I know of how to remove raw eggs and then you can place a sequin with glue over the small hole. Use a leather needle for the holes! They are like a 3 sided pyramid drawn to a sharp point, with each corner of the pyramid sharp enough to cut thick leather. You can twirl it like a drill and grind a hole into the shell. There is no strain on the shell and never a crack. Once you have both holes needle size, you can use a cheap 3/16" drillbit to enlage the exit hole. Just twirl it between thumb and forefinger, like you did with the leather needle. Have FUN!

_____________________________________________________ A recent study found that 35% of men have been injured while undoing a woman's bra. That's correct. While unfastening a woman's stabilizing devise, men have received strained tendons, scratches, and other similar injuries. My neighbor Bob can vouch for that. He got injured today while trying to undo a woman's bra. When he undid the woman in front of him in the checkout line, she turned and hit him with a frozen chicken. ___________________________________________________
an old trick with a new twist
____________________________________________________ Larry's barn burned down and his wife, Susan, called the insurance company. Susan told the insurance company, "We had that barn insured for fifty thousand and I want my money." The agent replied, "Whoa there, just a minute, Susan. Insurance doesn't work quite like that. We will ascertain what the value of the insured property was just before it burned, and then provide you with a new one of comparable worth." There was a long pause before Susan replied, "Then I'd like to cancel the policy on my husband." ____________________________________________________ A man approached the very beautiful woman in the large supermarket and asked, "I've lost my wife here in the supermarket. Can you talk to me for a minute?" "Why?" she asks. "Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman, my wife instantly appears out of nowhere." ____________________________________________________
