As the casket was lowered into the grave, a violent thunderstorm broke, and the pastor's benediction was drowned out by a blinding flash of lightning, followed by terrific thunder. "Well," commented her husband, "sounds like she got told where to go."

A classic: A man was sued by a woman for defamation of character. She charged that he had called her a pig. The man was found guilty and fined. After the trial he asked the judge, "This means that I cannot call Mrs. Johnson a pig?" The judge said that was true. "Does this mean I cannot call a pig Mrs. Johnson?" the man asked. The judge replied that he could indeed call a pig Mrs. Johnson with no fear of legal action. The man then proceeded to look directly at Mrs. Johnson and said, "Good afternoon, Mrs. Johnson." ______________________________________________________ TEACHER: Max, use "defeat", "defense", and "detail" in a sentence.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Attempted Murder-By-Hanging In Parleys Canyon interrupted by firefighters Juan Echeveste Alba, 22, Salt Lake City, Utah A weekend dispatch call that sent firefighters up Parleys Canyon in search of a phantom fire may have saved a woman from murder by hanging. Four Unified Fire Authority firefighters could not find the reported smoke on Friday, so picked a random exit off Interstate 80 to turn their vehicle around. They exited at milepost 131, and noticed a car “awkwardly positioned,” and blocking the road, according to Utah Highway Patrol Sgt. Randy Riches. The firefighters reported that they noticed a man and woman nearby, and saw the man was pulling on a rope around the woman’s neck, as if to hang her. The other end of the rope was strung up and over a metal pipe, and the woman was crying and pulling at the rope as it constricted her neck. The man reportedly saw the firefighters, and forced the woman into his car. The firefighters rushed the vehicle and restrained the man until Utah Highway Patrol troopers arrived and made an arrest. Juan Echeveste Alba, 22, of Salt Lake City, was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and aggravated kidnapping. The woman told officer that Echeveste-Alba has tried to hurt her in the past, and once tried to strangle her, cutting off her air supply to the point that she said she saw white dots. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mike RE: Spam pretending to be from me Dear Webby, Does this mean someone has got my passwords?? Or is it a new type of spam? It appears to be from me to me? Mike Dear Mike yes, just spam. They paste your address into the FROM slot just as easy as they paste it into the TO slot. Since most of your Senators act like they have been bought by spammers, don't expect things to get better until vigilantes take the law into their own hands and burn a few dozen spammers at the stake. Luckily for you, that particular flavor of spam can be filtered easily. Just make a filter in your MailWasher to delete and hide mail from you to you. DON'T bounce it back though! That would create a loop and plug up your mail box for good. Just set it to delete it automatically, unseen. If you are in the habit of sending memos to yourself, start putting some wacky symbols at the start of your subject line, when you do that, for example ~~ Then you can use that in the filter IF the FROM contains mike@home.com IF the SUBJECT Does-Not-Contain ~~~ THEN delete, Automatically without showing in the list Once you have made that filter in MailWasher MailWasher you will never see that type of spam again. Have FUN! DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ The computer swallowed grandma Yes, honestly it's true. She pressed 'control' and 'enter' And disappeared from view. It devoured her completely, The thought just makes me squirm. She must have caught a virus Or been eaten by a worm. I've searched through the recycle bin And files of every kind; I've even used the Internet, But nothing did I find. In desperation, I asked Jeeves My searches to refine. The reply from him was negative, Not a thing was found 'online.' So, if inside your 'Inbox,' My Grandma you should see, Please 'Copy,''Scan' and 'Paste' her And send her back to me! This is a tribute to all the Grandmas who have been fearless and learned to use the computer. They are the greatest!!! -------------- And some GreatGrammas too! ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Tip: Drink Tap Water Instead of Bottled Water By Caseye [34 Posts, 209 Comments] Conserving water is critical to all of us. While it may seem as if we have an endless supply of water, we don't. Check out the important, and very interesting, information on the Internet about how much water is consumed, where, and how much is wasted. One of best tips is to buy a stainless steel jug and fill it with ice and tap water and refill the jug whenever you want. This is very economical, too. For every 1 gallon of bottled water you drink, it costs $10.00 (way more than a gallon of gas!) But, for every 1 gallon of tap water you drink, it only costs 1 cent! Drinking tap water not only saves you money, it also helps to save the environment from plastic bottles that should be recycled but aren't. Most end up in landfills or waterways. By caseye from Plano, TX You can usually get your tap or well water tested free at any hospital. Check your local requirements. Some places require two bottles, some have a nominal charge. By the way, store bought ice is often not safe for consumption. Just take used water bottles, fill them with tap or well water, and toss them into a camp cooler filled with ice. Have FUN!

____________________________________________________ "Make me one with everything," the Buddhist monk said to the hot-dog vendor who was hawking food near the temple. The vendor made a frank with mustard, ketchup, relish, and onions. The monk took it and handed over a twenty-dollar bill. The vendor stashed the cash in his apron and turned his attention to the next customer. "But where's my change?" the monk inquired. "Change must come from within, my friend," said the vendor. ____________________________________________________ This lady surprised a burglar in her kitchen. He was all loaded down with the things he was going to steal. She had no weapon and was all alone. The only thing that she could think to do was quote Scripture. So she holds up a hand and says: "ACTS 2:38!!!" The burglar quakes in fear and then freezes to the point that she is able to get to the phone and call 911 for the cops. When the cops arrive, the burglar is still frozen in place. They are very much surprised that a woman alone with no weapon could do this. One of them asked the lady: "How did you do this?" The woman replied, "I quoted Scripture." The cop turned to the burglar: "What was it about the scripture that had such an effect on you?" The burglar replied: "Scripture! What scripture? She said she had an axe and two 38's." ____________________________________________________
