"How about some perfume?" he asked the cosmetics clerk. She showed him a bottle costing $50.00. "That's a bit much," said Tim, so she returned with a smaller bottle for $30.00. "That's still quite a bit," Tim complained. Growing annoyed, the clerk brought out a tiny $15.00 bottle. "What I mean," said Tim, "is I'd like to see something really cheap." The clerk handed him a mirror.

MALE OR FEMALE? SWISS ARMY KNIFE -- male, because even though it appears useful for a wide variety of work, it spends most of its time just opening bottles. KIDNEYS -- female, because they always go to the bathroom in pairs. TIRE -- male, because it goes bald and is often over-in- flated. SHOE -- male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging out. PHOTOCOPIER -- female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up again -- and only when the right buttons are pushed. HAMMER -- male, because it hasn't evolved much over the last 5,000 years, but it's handy to have around. REMOTE CONTROL -- Definitely female, because it gives men pleasure; he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps trying. ______________________________________________________ While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a college student led the way into the den. "What is the big brass gong and hammer for?" one of his friends asked. "That is the talking clock," the man replied. "How's it work?" "Watch," the man said and proceeded to give the gong an ear shattering pound with the hammer. Suddenly, someone screamed from the other side of the wall, "Knock it off, you idiot! It's two o'clock in the morning!" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brittney McCoy, 26, Greenbrier, Tennessee Woman steals the wallet of dead car crash victim. A Greenbrier woman is facing multiple charges after police said she stole a wallet from the body of a man who died in a wreck near her home last week and used his credit card to buy beer, cigarettes and other items at a nearby convenience store. Brittney McCoy, 26, is charged with theft, burglary, tampering with evidence and the fraudulent use of a credit card, according to a news release issued by Greenbrier Police on Friday. She was arrested Thursday, July 7 and booked into Robertson County Jail on $37,000 bond. McCoy was the first person to reach Ronald Lewis Clinard, 67, of Greenbrier, after he crashed his red Chevrolet pickup near Greenridge Apartments late last week, police said. She gave Clinard’s identification to responding officers when they arrived at the scene of the crash, Greenbrier Police Chief K.D. Smith said Friday. “She claimed she found it lying by a tree,” the chief said. “To my knowledge, she didn’t try to help the victim. Another gentleman, the second person on the scene, was the one who called for help. He tried to care for the gentleman in the car, hold his head up and help all he could until the paramedics got there.” Investigators believe McCoy took Clinard’s wallet before the other person arrived on the scene, while Clinard was incapacitated, police said. They also think others may have been involved and are continuing their investigation into that possibility, the Friday release noted. A pistol is also missing from the crash scene, and investigators are looking into that as well, Smith said. He added that he's never seen anything like what happened last week during his 30-year career in law enforcement. “She (McCoy) actually left the scene, purchased a soft drink with the victim’s card, brought [that drink] back to the scene and gave it to the victim’s daughter, who was on the scene,” the chief said. “I’ve never seen anything this devastating. She had a total disregard for the deceased individual and his family.” Greenbrier Police were tipped off to McCoy’s actions by members of Clinard’s family, Smith said. When the wallet was not found at the scene, the family called Clinard’s bank and they were informed about McCoy’s purchases, the chief said. Once investigators were notified, they obtained surveillance video of McCoy making the purchases, Smith said. “We spoke to her, interviewed her, and she showed no sign of any kind of remorse,” the chief said. Clinard was driving north on Highway 41 near Greenridge Apartments at about 3 p.m. on July 1 when his truck crossed two lanes of traffic, struck a grass embankment and went airborne before it came to rest in a section of trees along the road, police said in a prior interview. He was declared dead at the scene. Authorities are not sure what caused the wreck, and the investigation into the circumstances surrounding it are continuing. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Brigit RE: Copyright Symbol Dear Webby, How do you make the copyright symbol that you put on some of your pictures?

DearWebby _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ A minister, a priest and a rabbi went for a hike one day. It was very hot. They were sweating and exhausted when they came upon a small lake. Since it was fairly secluded, they took off all their clothes and jumped into the water. Feeling refreshed, the trio decided to pick a few berries while enjoying their "freedom." As they were crossing an open area, who should come along but a group of ladies from town. Unable to get to their clothes in time, the minister and the priest covered their privates and the rabbi covered his face while they ran for cover. After the ladies had left and the men got their clothes back on, the minister and the priest asked the rabbi why he covered his face rather than his privates. The rabbi replied, "I don't know about you, but in MY congregation, it's my face they would recognize." ______________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Peanut Butter Roll Candy By Charlene S. My grandmother always did the recipe with 1 medium potato, 1 stick of butter (room temp.), pinch of salt, 1 tsp. vanilla & add powder sugar till forms dough. Roll out on powdered sugar sprinkled board covered with wax paper. Spread with peanut butter (add coconut & chopped nuts if you want) & roll tightly. Makes 2-3 rolls. Refrigerate & slice into pieces. Nothing new to add for the recipe.. just a FYI Use cotton string to cut logs into slices. This prevents breakage or misshapen pieces. ______________________________________________________

____________________________________________________ Her husband had passed on and the new widow was so distraught that she sought out a spiritualist who told her that her husband was just fine. She added further that he was eagerly awaiting a reunion with her. "Is there anything he needs ?" the distraught woman asked, between tears. The spiritualist went into a transient state, then replied, "He says he'd love a carton or two of cigarettes." "I'll send some cartons immediately." the woman said joyfully. "But did he say where I should send them ?" "No." replied the Seer somberly, and added with an evil grin: "But he didn't ask for matches." "Oh GREAT!" exclaimed the woman."Then he is either with Zeus and the eternal olympic flame, or with Thor, the god of thunder and lighning!" ____________________________________________________ A big-game photographer went on safari with his wife and mother-in-law. One evening, while still deep in the jungle, the wife awoke to find her mother gone. Rushing to her husband, she insisted on them both trying to find her mother. He picked up his rifle, took a swig of whiskey, and started to look for her. In a clearing not far from the camp, they came upon a chilling sight: the mother-in-law was backed up against a thick, impenetrable bush, and a large male lion stood facing her. The wife cried, "What are we going to do?" "Nothing," said the husband. "Those old lions are pretty tough. He'll be OK." ____________________________________________________
