The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and the youngest one-ninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue. Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home. ______________________________________________________ 2017 Launch Flash Sale MTP $29.99 ______________________________________________________ One day a boy and his father were at the dining room table working on the boy's Social Studies homework, the chapter about government.

Investigators say the carjacking happened around 3:30 a.m. in the parking lot of the Bonefish Grill, located at 225 Pipkin Rd. W. in Lakeland. The woman was in her car preparing to leave the parking lot when a male approached the driver-side window with what appeared to be a chain wrapped around his hand. The man demanded that she get out of the vehicle. The woman got out and the man drove away in the westbound direction on Pipkin Road. A witness to the carjacking spotted McLaughlin at a convenience store nearby and called authorities early Sunday morning. Deputies arrived and took McLaughlin into custody without incident. McLaughlin is being charged with armed robbery and burglary, grand theft, and illegal possession of drugs without a prescription. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Mia RE: HTML Dear Webby, Dear Webby, how long does it normally take to learn HTML? Mia < Dear Mia It takes half an hour to learn the basics from free tutorials, half a year of using it to get comfortable with it, teaching it to others for a year to get good at it. Have FUN! DearWebby Thanks to Angela for this one: Two cars were waiting at a stoplight. The light turned green, but the man didn't notice it. A woman in the car behind him was watching traffic pass around them. The woman begins pounding on her steering wheel and yelling at the man to move. The man doesn't move. The woman is going ballistic inside her car, ranting and raving at the man, pounding on her steering wheel and dash. The light turns yellow and the woman begins to blow the car horn, flips him off, and screams profanity and curses at the man. The man, looks up, sees the yellow light and accelerates through the intersection just as the light turns red. The woman is beside herself, screaming in frustration as she misses her chance to get through the intersection. As she is still in mid-rant she hears a tap on her window and looks up into the barrel of a gun held by a very serious looking policeman. The policeman tells her to shut off her car while keeping both hands in sight. She complies, speechless at what is happening. After she shuts off the engine, the policeman orders her to exit her car with her hands up. She gets out of the car and he orders her to turn and place her hands on her car then handcuffs her and takes her to the police station where she is fingerprinted, photographed, searched, booked, and placed in a cell. After a couple of hours, a policeman approaches the cell and opens the door for her. She is escorted back to the booking desk where the original officer is waiting with her personal effects and says, "I'm really sorry for this mistake. But you see, I pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping the Reverend in front of you off, and cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the "Choose Life" license plate holder, the "What Would Jesus Do" bumper sticker, the "Follow Me to Sunday School" bumper sticker, and the chrome plated Christian Fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally, since your behavior was so contrasting to all that, I assumed you had stolen the car."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Curry Beef with Rice SPOKANE, Wash. - Three men who went streaking through a Denny's restaurant were chilled and chagrined when they spotted a thief drive off in their getaway car, their clothes inside. Naked in the 20-degree weather, the three young men huddled behind cars in a parking lot until police arrived. "I don't think they were hiding. I think they were just concealing themselves," police spokesman Dick Cottam said. The three entered the restaurant before daybreak Wednesday, wearing only shoes and hats. They left their car running so they could make a quick escape. But the streakers watched through the windows as a man who had been eating inside the restaurant drove off in their car. No charges were brought against the streakers. "I think it was just three kids who decided to fool around," Cottam said. He added: "We always tell people to not leave their car running."

Matt went into Doc Steven's office for his annual checkup, and the Doc asked if there was anything unusual he should know about. That left it pretty wide open, so he told the Doc that he found it real strange how his suit must've shrunk just sittin' in his closet, because it didn't fit when he went to get ready for a wedding recently. The Doc said, "Suits don't shrink just sittin' there. You probably just put on a few pounds, Matt." "That's just it, Doc, I know I haven't gained a single pound since the last time I wore it." "Well, then," said Doc, "You must have a case of Furniture Disease." "What in the world is Furniture Disease?" Matt asked. "Furniture Disease, Matt, is when you reach that stage in life when your chest starts slidin' down into your drawers."

____________________________________________________ Is it 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- inflated. HOT AIR BALLOON: male, because to get it to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under it . . . and, of course, there's the hot air part. SPONGES -- female, because they are soft and squeezable and retain water. WEB PAGE -- female, because it is always getting visitors. SHOE -- male, because it is usually unpolished, with its tongue hanging out. COPIER -- female, because once turned off, it takes a while to warm up -- because it is an effective reproductive device when the right buttons are pushed -- because it can wreak havoc when the wrong buttons are pushed. ZIPLOC BAGS -- male, because they hold everything in, but you can always see right through them. SUBWAY -- male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people up. 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. ____________________________________________________ Jon was in his usual place, sitting at the table, reading the paper during breakfast. He came across an article about a beautiful actress who was about to marry a football player who was known primarily for his lack of smarts. He turned to his wife with a look of bewilderment on his face. "I'll never understand why the dumbest jerks get the most attractive wives." His wife replied, "Why, thank you, dear!" ____________________________________________________
