A plane took off from Kennedy Airport. After it reached a comfortable cruising altitude, the captain made an announ- cement over the intercom, "Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome to Flight Number 293, nonstop from New York to Los Angeles. The weather ahead is good and therefore we should have a smooth and uneventful flight. Sit back and relax - OH NO!" Silence. After a moment, the captain came back on the intercom and said, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am so sorry if I scared you earlier, but while I was talking, the flight-attendant brought me a cup of coffee and spilled the hot coffee in my lap. You should see the front of my pants!" A passenger in Coach said, "That's nothing. You should see the back of mine!" ______________________________________________________ After the birth of their child, an Episcopal priest, wearing his clerical collar, visited his wife in the hospital.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Frank Moracco, 60, Frankfort Village, NY Frankfort NY mayor arrested for stealing 111 road signs Apparently, no one saw the signs. A mayor in upstate New York is facing criminal charges for allegedly stealing 111 road signs from the state’s Department of Transportation, according to New York State Police arrested Frank Moracco Monday on charges of misconduct and petit larceny. Both charges are Class “A” misdemeanors, according to Moracco, 60, has served as the mayor of Frankfort Village since 2004, and has worked as a sign shop foreman for the state’s Department of Transportation since 2001, reports. Police started investigating Moracco in July of 2015 after getting a tip from someone in the town, New York State Police spokesman Jack Keller told The Huffington Post. They said he took 111 road signs made at the shop and gave them to the Village of Frankfort Street Department, according to the Utica Observer-Dispatch. “There were a variety of signs, including yield and stop signs,” Keller told HuffPost. “A village usually has to apply to get signs and then pay a fee. [Moracco] bypassed that process.” Moracco was issued an appearance ticket for the charges and is due in Frankfort Town Court May 3. It is unknown what has happened to the road signs allegedly stolen by Moracco. Neither he, the Frankfort Village Street Department nor the New York State Police have responded to inquiries from HuffPost. Frankfort Village clerk Karlee Tamburro told the Observer- Dispatch that the village has no comment on the situation, but that Moracco will continue to serve as mayor. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Eno RE: Verizon and AOL mail Dear Webby Is it true that Verizon bought AOL because AOL knows how to deal with people upset about mail not working? Did they buy all of AOL, or just the mail part? Eno Dear Eno Yes, apparently they did. They want to focus on phones and the use of phones to get onto the Internet, and are tired of getting yelled at about email problems. Initially the switch is just for some regions to test how well AOL can handle the email for Verizon customers. There is no need to panic. You can still continue to use Gmail, set it to POP and then use Eudora, Thunderbird or even Outlook to take care of your email. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up Jack's station wagon and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farm house and asked the attractive lady of the house if they could spend the night. "I'm recently widowed," she explained, "and I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house." "Not to worry," Jack said, "we'll be happy to sleep in the barn." Nine months later, Jack got a letter from the widow's attorney. He called up his friend Bob and said, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow at the farm we stayed at?" "Yes, I do." "Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and have sex with her?" "Yes, I have to admit that I did." "Did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name, and leave her one of my business cards ?" Bob's face turns red and he said, "Yeah, I'm afraid I did." "Well, thanks! She just died and left me everything!" ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Black Rubber Marks on Laminate Floors By Nick Rous [1 Comment] Use lighter fuel on a piece of kitchen towel.

_____________________________________________________ Three preachers sat discussing the best positions for prayer, while a telephone repairman worked nearby. One preacher claimed, "Kneeling is definitely best." "No," another contended. "I get the best results standing with my hands outstretched to Heaven." "You're both wrong," the third insisted. "The most effective prayer position is lying prostrate, face down on the floor." The repairman could contain himself no longer. "Hey, fellas," he interrupted, "the best prayin' I ever did was hanging by my climbing spurs upside down from a telephone pole in a thunder and lightning storm." ___________________________________________________

One morning I took it into the ladies room to fill it with water. Then I began preening in the mirror, brushing my hair and reapplying some makeup. I didn't realize how long I'd been until someone slid a note under the door. "You win," it read. Any ransom demand will be met. Just release the coffeepot, re-filled please, if the water has gone stale." ____________________________________________________
