Just then former President Clinton appeared on the television. After a few sips, the stranger looked up at the television and mumbled, "Now, there's the biggest horse's ass I've ever seen." A customer at the end of the bar quickly stood up, walked over to him, and decked him. A few minutes later, as the man was finishing his beer, Hillary Clinton appeared on the television. "She's a horse's ass, too," he muttered. This time, a customer at the other end of the bar quickly stood up, walked over to him and knocked him flat. The man said, climbing back up to the bar, "This must be Clinton country!" "Nope," says the bartender, "horse country." ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Danny Wells, Smyrna, Cobb County, Georgia Georgia pastor charged with rape and aggravated child molestation of 10-year-old girl at shelter Police arrested Wells Thursday afternoon. An investigation, which began in Alabama, led police to Wells after a 10-year- old girl told police that Wells had sexually abused her. “The Garden's been open for 10 years, so there is a concern there may be additional victims, adult and juvenile,” said McCreary. The young girl was apparently staying at the Garden Recovery Center with her mother earlier this year for recovery services. Police said there was a delay in reporting the crime because the girl and her mother had moved out of state. “The child did make statements to the Alabama police department during an interview that concerned them. They contacted our Cobb County Crime Department,” said the lieutenant. While police in Cobb County expect more of Wells’ victims to come forward, the victim told detectives in Dothan, Alabama, that the pastor attacked her in a recovery center in Smyrna, Georgia, about 30 miles away from where he founded 7 Bridges to Recovery ministry. "The investigation into this incident is ongoing and there may be additional victims," police said. The investigation is ongoing and Cobb County Police said there may be additional victims. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Cobb County Police Department's Crimes Against Children's Unit. According to the 990 tax form of 7 Bridges, Wells was the CEO. The form, filed May 3, says the church recieved $602,966 in contributions and grants this year and $498,731 last year. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Manny RE: Tripod substitute Dear Webby, You ranked a purse full of sand higher than a store bought tripod. Why is that? Manny Dear Manny Get a fishing rod and try turning a light switch on or off. Did you notice how the tip wavered around due to the slightest jitter in your hand? Now imagine that fishing rod to be a mile long, or even just a quarter mile, and how far the slightest jitter will move the tip. You can even clamp your fishing rod onto a storebought tripod, and see how much the tip jitters around. Look along the fishing rod, using the tip as a gun sight, to a point a quarter mile away. Would you be able to keep your "gun sight" on a moose? Most tripods amplify tiny ground vibrations. An old, soft leather purse filled with sand does the opposite. It dampens vibrations. If you can't find a soft, old leather purse at a second hand store, get an old suede or similar kids or ladie's jacket. Cut off a sleeve to about 6 inches long, turn it inside out and glue one end shut. Rip out any smooth lining. Turn it right side out, fill it with dry sand, but not too tightly, and glue the open end shut. Now you have a nice little pillow. Old leather or suede does not slip off a car or fence post. Now you can nestle the camera on that pillow. It will sit steady, and the ground vibrations will be dampened. Have FUN! DearWebby Ralph was an Air Force colonel. He routinely flew on different aircraft to familiarize himself with their capabilities. One day he was aboard an intelligence aircraft where each crew member was surrounded by complex gear. A young major showed him his computer screen. "That's a chat screen, Sir," the soldier said. "We use it to relay enemy information to the crew--like instant messaging." Nodding, he moved down the line. Flashing on an airman's screen several feet away was this warning: "Heads up! brass coming your way! Close the porn!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use a Bathroom Rug to Move Furniture By Teri [1 Post, 1 Comment] Recently I needed to switch furniture in two rooms in my house. I have beautiful hardwood floors that are 57 years old and was afraid of scratching them. The furniture I needed to move (by myself) was heavy, big pieces and cumbersome. I thought about getting some of those mover thingies you put under the legs to move things but I didn't trust them to not scratch the floors. On the day I started moving the small stuff, I was doing laundry. My bathroom rugs (non-skid back, fluffy top) were sitting on the floor by the washer and I had a light bulb moment! I took the rugs into one room and turned them upside down. I put a small table on top and slide the table into the next room. NO marks on the floor! I have a 5' sideboard which is super heavy and I managed to move that on top of a rug BY MYSELF! So next time you need to move some furniture over hardwood floors just grab a bathroom rug!

A teacher caught a student in the hall during class time and said, "Jill, tell me, whose class you're cutting this time?" The young teen said, "Like, uh, see, okay, like it's like, I really don't like, think like, that's really important, y'know, like because I'm, y'know, like I don't get anything out of it." The teacher smiled and said, "It's your English class, isn't it?"

A man rushed over, reassured the Yuppie that he was going to be all right and identified himself as a doctor. He performed the Heimlich Maneuver. The bone popped out. As the man's breath & voice returned he said, "I'm ever so grateful doctor, how can I ever repay you?" The doctor smiled and said, "I'll settle for one-tenth of what you were willing to pay while you were choking." ____________________________________________________ Groan Alert: Bob was telling his friend Joe about his vacation in France. Bob talked about how lovely the Eiffel Tower was, the exquisite works of art at the Louvre, the Notre Dame, and of course, the easy French women. Joe asked Bob, "Was there anything you didn't like about France?" "Well," Bob replies, "there was one thing that was strange about it. In France, anything you eat, anything you drink, even the air that you breathe over there cleans out your colon. I mean, it REALLY cleans your colon out." So Joe says, "Gee, with France like that, who needs enemas?" ____________________________________________________
