When the pharmacist came out, the man asked if he could give him a cure for the hiccups. The pharmacist immediately reached out and slapped him across the face. "What'd you do that for?" the man asked. "Well, you don't have the hiccups anymore, do you?" "No," the man replied, "but if you look out that window,... do you see that sumo wrestler shaking that telephone pole? That's my wife with the hickups. Do you want me to call her to come in?" ______________________________________________________ 2017 Launch Flash Sale MTP $29.99 ______________________________________________________ Two guys left the bar after a long night of drinking. There was a thick and heavy snow storm and a foot of snow on top of the icy hardpack that had covered the parking lot when they had arrived earlier. They jumped into the icy car and started it up. Suddenly they were in a hurry to get home and the driver floored the accelerator. After a couple of minutes in the thick snow storm, just as the car heater started to blow warm air, an old man appeared in the passenger window and tapped lightly. The passenger screamed, "Look at he window. There's an old ghost's face there!" The driver stomped down the accelerator even harder, but the old man's face stayed in the window. The passenger rolled his window down part way and, scared out of his wits, yelled, "What do you want?" The old man softly replied, "You got any tobacco?" The passenger handed the old man a cigarette and yelled, "Step on it," to the driver, rolling up the window in terror. A few minutes later they calmed down and started laughing again. The driver said, "I don't know what happened, but don't worry; the speedometer says we're doing 80 now." All of a sudden there was a light tapping on the window and the old man's face reappeared in the heavy blizzard. "There he is again," the passenger yelled. He rolled down the window and shakily said, "Yes?" "Do you have a light?" the old man quietly asked. The passenger threw a lighter out the window, screaming at the driver: "Step on it!" The speedometer showed about 100 miles an hour now. They were trying to forget what they had just seen and heard, when all of a sudden there came some more tapping. "Oh my God! He's back!" The passenger rolled down the window and screamed in stark terror, "WHAT NOW?" The old man gently replied, "Do you guys want some help getting off that icy patch?" ______________________________________________________ From FB ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Bobby Brown, La Noah Ealy Jr., Daveon Nix, Quartez Walker. Four Alabama men arrested in attack on teen who said 'Blue lives matter' Four black men face assault charges in connection with the beating of a white Alabama high school student who had posted pro-police comments online, police confirmed Wednesday. The men, all former Sylacauga High School students, were arrested Tuesday after the Sept. 30 attack against 17-year- old Brian Ogle, Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson told reporters. Police have said the attack may have been racially motivated. Ogle's mother, Brandi Allen, says her son responded to students wearing Black Lives Matter T-shirts at his school with "Blue lives matter," a defense of police officers. Officers found him bleeding on the ground after a homecoming football game. He was hospitalized with serious head injuries. Twenty-year-old Quartez Walker and 19-year-old Bobby Brown were arrested at Stillman College. Eighteen-year-old La Noah Ealy, Jr. was arrested at Auburn University in Montgomery. Twenty-year-old Daveon Nix was arrested in Sylacauga. Nix is the son of Sylacauga District 2 City Councilwoman- elect Tiffany Nix, The Daily Home reported. "Instead of us planning for his 18th birthday, we're here. Why? Because he made a statement that he backs the blue? I'm still trying to understand how someone, no matter the color of their skin, can do this to another human being," Allen said as her son recovered in the hospital. "I don't wish any harm on anyone's child. I would like for them to have to look at my child right now. I don't want any other mother to have to go through what I went through these past few days." ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From Morris B Re: Re-use CD's ? Dear Webby, We moved into the former office of a business that has closed down and we found boxes and boxes of used back-up CD's. So, we called the people who had been here. They said they were out of business and didn't care who knew what was on the CD's and that we were welcome to re-use them. Is it safe to re-use CD's ? Thanks, Morris B Dear Morris Yes, sure, especially with back-up CD's that have had very little use. Just erase them with your CD burner and use them like new ones. If they are really old, you might get only a couple of safe erases and reburns, but with the newer CDs you can get many re-uses out of them. Have FUN! DearWebby After a young couple brought their new baby home, the wife suggested that her husband should try his hand at changing diapers. "I'm busy," he said, "I'll do the next one." The next time came around and she asked again. The husband looked puzzled. "Oh! I didn't mean the next diaper. I meant the next baby!"

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Reviving Tired Stiff Paintbrushes By ahorrasi [18 Posts, 13 Comments] Total Time: 1 hour to 24 hours Source: I had at one point purchased a pricey 'brush restorer' fluid but then I realized the same main ingredient was the same as the one found in common nail polish remover. Supplies: dirty, old, tired brushes nail polish remover soap paint thinner/turpentine/turpatine, etc. if needed (only relevant for oil based paints) Steps: To restore brushes ruined by dry acrylics, just soak them in nail polish remover for 24 hours and you will be amazed at the results. To fix brushes damaged by oil paints, only soak for an hour at most; for most stiffness due to not properly cleaning oil brushes, just a 20 minute soak will be enough. It is important not to leave the brushes in the nail polish solution for too long because the acetone will quickly wear away the brush bristle and make the brush frayed, which you do not want! So, especially if you have expensive brushes, test them frequently and pull them out of the solution as soon as you feel the stiffness go away. After you have soaked the brushes in the solution and felt their flexibility return, wash them thourougly with soap and warm water. This is important so as to get rid of the chemical that will eventually wear the brush away. NOTE: please be careful because the solution will wear down the paint of the brush as well. Try to only soak the metal part that adheres to the bristles. BONUS: restores paint! Say you're working on a great project, in acrylic, but you realize that your tube has dried up! Oh no! What to do? Rush out and buy more, or use the magic substance to reconstitute the paint? Yeah, that's right, the nail polish remover will reconstitute entire tubes of acrylics, gouache, and any other dried out water based paint! (turpentine and mineral spirits work for oils) Just add a few drops to a teaspoon of the stuff to the paint, stab the paint so that the fluid penetrates, leave it be for a half hour or more, and watch the paint reconstitute itself.

The customer in the Italian restaurant was so pleased that he asked to speak to the chef. The owner proudly led him into the kitchen and introduced him to the chef. "Your veal parmigiana was superb," the customer said. "I just spent a month in Italy, and yours is better than any I ever had over there in Italy." "Naturally," the chef said. "Over there, in Italy, they use cheap domestic cheese. Ours is imported."

____________________________________________________ A man was driving to work when a car ran a stop sign, hit his car broadside, and knocked him cold. The other car slid into a gas pump and caused a fire. Passersby pulled him from the wreck and revived him. He began a terrific struggle and had to be tranquilized by the medics. Later, when he was calm, they asked him why he struggled so much. He said, "I remember the impact, then nothing. I woke up on a concrete slab, saw a lot of fire and behind it a huge 'HELL' sign. Until somebody moved, I did not realize that there was an 'S'!" in front of the "HELL". ____________________________________________________ An older couple is sitting together watching television. During one of the commercials, the husband asked his wife, "Whatever happened to our sexual relations?" After a long thoughtful silence, the wife replied during the next commercial.
