______________________________________________________ A motion to adjourn is always in order. --- Robert Heinlein (1907 - 1988) There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers. --- Richard Feynman (1918 - 1988) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ The following quiz consists of four questions that tell you whether or not you are qualified to be a professional. Scroll down for the answers. The questions are not that difficult. You just need to think like a professional. 1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator? * * * * The correct answer is: Open the refrigerator, put in the giraffe and close the door. This question tests whether or not you are doing simple things in a complicated way. 2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator ? * * * * Incorrect answer: Open the refrigerator, put in the elephant and shut the refrigerator. Correct answer: Open the refrigerator, take out of the giraffe, put in the elephant and close the door. This question tests your foresight. 3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference. All the animals attend except one. Which animal does not attend? * * * * Correct answer: The elephant. The elephant is in the refrigerator! This tests if you are capable of comprehensive thinking. OK, if you did not answer the last three questions correctly, this one may be your last chance to test your qualifications to be a professional. 4. You have to cross Crocodile River and have no boat or weapon. How do you cross it? * * * * Correct Answer: Simply swim through it. All the crocodiles are attending the animal meeting! This question tests your reasoning ability. If you answered four out of four questions correctly, you are a true professional. Wealth and success await you. If you answered three out of four, you have some catching up to do but there's hope for you. If you answered two out of four, consider a career as a hamburger flipper in a fast food joint. If you answered one out of four, try selling some of your organs. It's the only way you will ever make any money. If you answered none correctly, consider a career that does not require logic or any higher mental functions at all, such as local politics. ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Jill heard her husband come back into the house not too long after he had left.

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Catherine Therrell, 55 Pevely, Missouri Naked Missouri woman sitting on couch when mom and young boys come home. A Missouri woman called police last week when she returned home with her two young boys to find a naked woman sitting on their couch, according to KTVI. “I asked her who she was and why she was there and she told me her name was Catherine and she was there for the birthday party,” said Brianna Willey. “And she was definitely dressed for it.” There was no birthday party and the woman was stripped down to her birthday suit, wearing nothing. “I had to ask her to let me in the house because she put the latch on, and she put her clothes on backwards, then she realized her clothes were on backwards, so she proceeded to take them back off as I was standing there,” Willey said. “Officers who later arrived on scene and placed her in custody advised that she was highly intoxicated,” said Cpl. Benjamin Litterall of the Pevely Police Department. This isn’t the first time the woman has crashed someone’s home drunk. The woman, identified as Catherine Therrell, was charged when she crashed her vehicle into a home back in February. In that incident, Therrell narrowly missed hitting a mother and child sitting in the living room watching TV, according to police. Police said Therrell's blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. She was charged with driving while intoxicated persistent offender and second-degree property damage, with a $10,000 bond. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jennifer Re: Electric watch battery Dear Webby I know this is not computer or web related, but nobody else can answer me. Is it possible to change the battery in a wrist watch, or are they all just disposable now? There is no clockmaker in the entire valley any more, and I am stuck. Jennifer /i> Dear Jennifer Changing watch batteries is easy, IF you have the right tools. Don't ever attempt to do it by holding the watch in your hand. That is a guarantee that you will stab your hand. You have to use a knife-sharp screwdiver or wood chisel to pry open the back. Noting to it if the watch is held rock-solid in a vise, away from vulnerable hands. Luckily the tools are amazingly cheap. A good watch vise is $8 - $10. A "professional watchmaker's tool kit" is around $60 - $70, but unless you want to change the batteries for everybody in the valley, you will easily get away with a $15 battery-changer's tool kit. You can always add more tools if there is a demand. If you have a decent watch vise, you can improvise on the tools, or use tools you already have. Battery makers, like Energizer, have good on-line instructions for how to change watch batteries. They are almost like a course, and in PDF for easy printing as a manual. An example is at Energizer Watch Battery Replacement Guide If you have problems seeing very small stuff, either get a magnifying glass, or get some kid to help you. It's actually really easy if you can see small stuff, like the + or - on the tiny battery. At Walmart they change batteries on watches bought there, and if you are really good at flirting, they will do it on other watches too. Have FUN! DearWebby
Today's Bonehead reminded me of this story: A man was sitting at a bar enjoying an after-work beer when an exceptionally gorgeous & sexy young woman entered. She was so striking that the man could not take his eyes away from her. The young woman noticed his overly-attentive stare and walked directly toward him. Before he could offer his apologies for being so rude, the young woman said to him, "I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $100 on one condition." Flabbergasted, the man asked what the condition was. The young woman replied, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words." The man considered her proposition for a moment, withdrew his wallet from his pocket and slowly counted out five $20 bills, which he pressed into the young woman's hand. He looked deeply into her eyes and slowly, meaningfully said, "Clean my house."

>from Millie: Dear Webby, you are going to get a chuckle outa this: We have always had your Humor Letter on the bulletin board, probably long before I started here. The last two years it was my duty and pleasure to print it and put it up every morning. Because nobody had read the boss's announcements re a picnic on the company anniversary, I was told today that in future all of his announcements be put "right beside the Webby Humor Letter, which seems to be the only part of the bulletin board anybody reads".
