Following his arrest it was determined Hynum had also burglarized a carport and stolen a Ford pickup truck, which was disabled in the area. While deputies were working both crime scenes Hynum kicked out the rear driver’s side window and, still cuffed, was able to get out of the vehicle and gain access to the driver’s seat. The suspect fled the area and driving with his knees and chin drove down Woodyard Road. Hynum then hit a private citizen’s fence, drove down a driveway and struck a barrier at the end of the driveway. The suspect fled from the patrol vehicle into the woods and was tased and apprehended by deputies after a short foot pursuit.

I love your humor letter a lot, i subscribed because my dad had been subscribed ages ago and would tell us some of the jokes you had. One day i decided i just had to get in on this and subscribed. I have not been dissapointed yet. I love the pictures that get included and all the jokes are just epic (although we have to agree that the bonehead award winners are the biggest joke of all). One of my favourite things about it is you use my name in it a couple of times so i love that a lot. Sorry for a long email but just wanted to say thank you and to tell you that everyday you bring a smile to a one legged boy who really needs to smile every now and then. Jae Dear Jae Good for you!

If your subscription does not have the correct first name or nickname, hit REPLY and type the correct first name or nickname, that you want to see in the Good Morning greeting at the top.

Thanks to Diana for this story: While sports fishing off the Florida coast, a tourist capsized his boat. He could swim, but his fear of alligators kept him clinging to the overturned craft. Spotting an old beachcomber standing on the shore, the tourist shouted, "Are there any gators around here?" "Naw," the man hollered back, "they ain't been around for years!" Feeling safe, the tourist started swimming leisurely toward the shore. About halfway there he asked the guy, "How'd you get rid of the gators?" "We didn't do nothin'," the beachcomber said. "The sharks got 'em."

Thanks to Jimmie for this story: In search of a new shower for our home, my wife and I went to a bathroom-supply store. We discussed our needs with a young saleswoman. Since it was near closing time, we had to curtail our discussion and made plans to come back the next day to make our final decision. Later that evening, my wife and I were at a restaurant, where the same young lady from the bathroom-supply store was now working a shift as a waitress. As she passed our table, she suddenly recognized us and called to me in a loud voice, "HEY! YOU'RE THE MAN WHO NEEDS A SHOWER!"
