He found one at a yard sale that Little Johnny happened to be manning. "This mower work, son?" the preacher asked. Little Johnny said, "Sure does -- just pull on the cord hard, though." The preacher took the mower home and when he got ready to mow he yanked and pulled and tugged on that cord. Nothing worked. It wouldn't start. Thinking he'd been swindled, he took the mower back to Little Johnny's house. "You said this would work if I pulled on the cord hard enough." "Well," Johnny said, "you need to cuss at it sometimes." The preacher was aghast. "I've not done that in years!" "Just keep yanking on that cord, Preacher. It'll come back to you." ______________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ THE COMPUTER SWALLOWED GRANDMA The computer swallowed grandma. Yes, honestly its true. She pressed 'control' and 'enter' And disappeared from view. It devoured her completely, The thought just makes me squirm. She must have caught a virus Or been eaten by a worm. I've searched through the recycle bin And files of every kind; I've even used the Internet, But nothing did I find. In desperation, I asked Jeeves My searches to refine. The reply from him was negative, Not a thing was found 'online'.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Wayne Douglas Brunet, in jail in Texas now. Pilot Busted trying to haul 230 Pounds of Pot from Oregon to Texas A pilot, who landed his plane in Llano Monday, was arrested for allegedly attempting to distribute more than 200 pounds of hydroponic marijuana. According to the United States Department of Justice, Wayne Douglas Brunet, 64, was taken into custody by the Department of Public Safety. Homeland Security Investigators were tipped off to suspicious activity by Brunet Sunday night as he attempted to land his aircraft at an unmanned airport in Bulverde, Texas. Soon after, authorities began tracking Brunet's plane. According to an arrest affidavit, they noticed in his flight from Medford, Oregon to Texas he had only stopped once to refuel in Arizona. When Brunet landed for the second time at the unmanned Bulverde airport, he didn't stay for long. The affidavit states that he departed again after noticing authorities waiting for him on the ground. Officials said Brunet flew to the Llano Municipal airport where he landed at midnight. Brunet then attempted to flee the area but was quickly caught by DPS. Authorities said they recovered 15 duffle bags filled with vacuum-sealed packages of marijuana along with an estimated amount of $6,000 in cash. If convicted, Brunet faces between five and 40 years in federal prison. Officials said he is scheduled to appear at a detention hearing in Austin Thursday at 2:15 p.m. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Ron Re: Power bar style UPS Dear Webby How good are those power bar style UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supplies) ? Thanks Ron /i> Dear Ron They are mostly just hype and nearly useless. They usually last long enough to hit CTRL S and save what you have been working on on ONE program. During the first year you may even be able to do a controlled shut-down, but don't count on it. To keep working you need a heavy floor model UPS, but if all you need to do is save your work in progress, those power bar UPS'es might help until you can get a real one. With Laptops, of course, you don't have to worry about power failures. Even an ancient laptop battery will allow you a controlled shut down. Have FUN! DearWebby
I just came across this 2005 Bonehead award: BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Gregory Alston, 20 of Baltimore, Maryland Carjacker Reports 'His' Car Stolen BALTIMORE - A suspect takes a car at gunpoint and drives it around for two weeks before the owner spots the car and has it towed. The thief then calls police to report "his" car stolen. Those events seemed so improbable that Baltimore police detective Gregory Jenkins felt compelled to end his report of the incident with the admonition, "Again, this really happened." "Another detective told me, 'Greg, you had to make this up,'" the detective told The (Baltimore) Sun. Police charged Gregory Alston, 20, Tuesday with armed robbery, possession of a stolen car and a handgun violation. Police say the carjacking occurred about 10:30 p.m. on April 20 when two women reported that a man armed with a silver handgun and wearing a black bandanna approached them while they were parked on a street in northeast Baltimore. The women said the gunman ordered them out of their car and sped off. Tuesday, one of the women spotted the stolen car in front of an apartment building about a half-mile from where it had been taken. She called police who towed it to the department's Northeast District station. Two hours later, a man called police and reported the car stolen. Officers brought the man back to the station for questioning. At first, police said, he insisted he had bought the car for $1,700 on March 11. Eventually, he confessed to the robbery. Why did he report it stolen? The suspect told police he had left his wallet in the car.

Thanks to Linda for this one: My husband is wonderful with our baby daughter, but often he turns to me for advice. Recently, I was in the shower when he poked his head in to ask, "What should I feed Lily for lunch?" "That's up to you," I replied. "There's all kinds of food. Why don't you pretend I'm not at home?" A few minutes later, my cell phone rang. I answered it to hear my husband asking, "Yeah, hi, Honey. Uh..what should I feed Lily for lunch?"
