______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Joshua Pierre Louis, 28, and Roxanne Paduani, 33 Fort Myers, Floriduh Lehigh Acres parents jailed for using stun gun to discipline children Two Lehigh Acres parents are in Lee County Jail on child abuse charges after detectives said they used a stun gun to discipline their four children. Joshua Pierre Louis, 28, and Roxanne Paduani, 33, were arrested Thursday about 6:15 p.m. by Lee County sheriff's detectives. "They were using it as a tool to deter the children from misbehaving," the sheriff's office report said. "The stun gun inflicted pain compliance on the children and left visible marks on two of the children." The sheriff's office declined to comment on the investigation. The children's ages were not immediately available Friday. Investigators learned about the alleged abuse of the four children when someone called the Florida Abuse Hotline, run by the Department of Children and Families. "The four children have been sheltered and are currently with relatives," she said. According to the arrest report, one of the children informed a DCF child protective investigator that they were being tased as a form of discipline. Paduani told a sheriff's office investigator that the couple owned a handheld stun gun and sparked it to warn one of the children, but denied ever touching children with it. One of the children told a case coordinator with the Children's Advocacy Center that Louis "shocks 'us' with the Taser when we are bad," according to the report. "They described being bad as screaming," the report states. The child then showed the case coordinator scars on their lower left stomach and said they were from being tased. In another instance, one of the children showed investigators marks on their upper right chest and said they were tased there. The child told authorities that Paduani has held the Taser but never used it on them. However, the report indicates, that she knows Louis tases them, but isn't present when it happens. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Gabby Re: Why are ink and toner so expensive? Dear Webby Why are printer cartidges and printer ink so expensive ? Gabby Dear Gabby Ink is not really that expensive. How much does Perrier or Evian water cost in your area ? That's just plain water with a bit of advertising added. I have seen people pay $4.95 for six ounces of that. For plain water! If you go downtown to Staples, you pay $265 for the toner that I get from the link further up for 1/8 of that. If I run out of toner and don't have a spare cartridge in that color, well, then I simply don't print for a few days until they ship me a box of toner. I am not at all complaining about the cost of toner cartridges. They are well packed in sturdy boxes that handle shipping from the manufacturer in China quite nicely. Sure, just like with Perrier or Naive water, the actual manufacturing cost is negligible. The price is determined by how much people are willing to pay. Have FUN!

It seems that a caller dialed 911 from a cell phone stating, "I am depressed and lying on a railway line so that when the train comes I can finally meet Allah." To which the call centre employee replied, "Remain calm and stay on the line." ___________________________________________________

"It's nine months before Mother's Day." ____________________________________________________ Walking up to a department store's fabric counter, a attractive young woman asked, "I want to buy this material for a new dress. How much does it cost?" "Only one kiss per yard, " replied the smirking male clerk." That's fine," replied the woman. "I'll take ten yards." With expectation and anticipation written all over his face, the clerk hurriedly measured out and wrapped the cloth, then held it out teasingly. The girl snapped up the package and pointed to a little old woman standing beside her. "Grandma will pay the bill," she smiled. ____________________________________________________
