The only problem was that they lived in a very conservative blue-law town. The sheriff raided their game and took all three before the local judge. After listening to the sheriff's story, the judge sternly inquired of the priest: "Were you gambling, Father?" The priest looked toward heaven, whispered, "Oh, Lord, forgive me!" and then said aloud: "No, your honor, I was not gambling." "Were you gambling, Reverend?" the judge asked the minister. The minister repeated the priest's actions and said, "No, your honor, I was not." Turning to the third clergyman, the judge asked: "Were you gambling, Rabbi?" The Rabbi eyed him coolly and replied: "With whom?" "That's 'With WHO!' " the Judge thundered. That is an extra day picking up garbage along the highway, on top of the five each of you get for lying to me!" ______________________________________________________ ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Here finally is a picture of the famous Bausell Sailor: Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Old Mugshot, does not include newest "features" Nikko Jenkins, 28, Omaha, Nebraska Prisoner Tried To Carve ‘666’ Into His Forehead — It Didn’t Exactly go As Planned In trying to prove he was crazy in a long shot bid to avoid the death penalty, Nikko Jenkins only ended up proving he was a major league moron. Jenkins, 28, attempted to carve “the mark of the beast” into his forehead. His major mistake was using a mirror, causing his “creation” to come out backward. However, with a series of upside-down 9s, Jenkins has fashioned himself an entirely unique – and irreversible – engraving. According to, Jenkins told his attorney about the incident in a phone call from his cell in Omaha, Nebraska. The 28-year-old is in an ongoing appeal that he is mentally unstable and therefore ineligible to face the death penalty. His failed stunt was an apparent attempt to help prove that case. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Martin Re: Compressed "air" Dear Webby I know you have long badmouthed and condemned the use of compressed air for computer cleaning, without ever stating your real reason. The kids already know and talk about it. Maybe it's as well that the parents and grandparents do too. (Yeah, I know, there are plenty of adult 'bone-heads" who would abuse them if told. Martin Dear Martin Yes, it is true that stooopid kids inhale the compressed "air" from those silly cans that are sold to bozos to blow dirt and small parts to harder to reach places. Techs have known or suspected for a long time that those companies like Dust-Off just ship their toxic waste gases all over the country, to get rid of them anywhere but in their own back yard. We have also known for a long time that a certain percentage of kids will sniff anything from gas to glue, if some other kids tell them it will make them experience something strange. So, since you now know that Dust-Off and similar cans of compressed "air" contain toxic waste gases, supposedly as a propellant, and that dumb kids sniff that stuff, don't bring it into the house. Sure, not all kids who huff the stuff will die, some will just get even dumber than they are. But a certain percentage WILL die from huffing. For the same cost as a large can of toxic waste gas propelled industrial air, you can get a small rechargeable battery powered vacuum cleaner and get rid of dust bunnies instead of blowing them underneath heat sinks and other hard to get to places. If you do feel the insane urge to blow dust from the computer all over the house, put the crevice tool onto the hose of the vacuum cleaner and plug the hose into the wrong end of the vacuum cleaner. The fans in the computer will suck the stuff back into the computer and you can repeat the procedure next spring. Have FUN! DearWebby
From a dozen years ago: Yesterday Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger was supposed to give a speech to California voters, but it was bumped so that Michael Jackson's verdict and a ton of ads could be televised. Arnold acted upset and said, if he can't speak to his voters, how can the [democrat] media misquote him?

Daily tip from Sap on Your Car It always best to remove sap from your car quickly, while it is still soft. The harder the sap gets, the tougher it is to remove and the more likely it is to scratch your car's finish. Make a paste with a mild abrasive like baking soda and apply to the sap, then rub it with a rag until the sap is removed. You can also try rubbing the sap with mayonnaise on a rag. I have also heard that WD-40 works well for softening sap so that it can be removed. Clean the area once the sap has been removed. Tip provided by

The psychic says, "You will meet a very beautiful girl, who will want to know everything about you." "That's great !" said the frog. "Where will I meet her? At a party, in the pond?" The psychic hesitated, then responded, "You will meet her next semester, in Biology lab!" ___________________________________________________
Celebrities when they were young.
A farmer lived on a quiet rural highway. But, as time went by, the traffic slowly built up at an alarming rate. The traffic was so heavy and so fast that his chickens were being run over at a rate of three to six a day. So one day he called the sheriff's office and said, "You've got to do something about all of these people driving so fast and killing all of my chickens." "What do you want me to do?" asked the sheriff. "I don't care, just do something about those drivers!" So the next day he had the county workers go out and erect a sign that said: SLOW: SCHOOL CROSSING Three days later the farmer called the sheriff and said, "You've got to do something about these drivers. The 'school crossing' sign seems to make them go faster." So, again, the sheriff sends out the county workers and they put up a new sign: SLOW: CHILDREN AT PLAY And that really sped them up. So the farmer called and called and called everyday for three weeks. Finally, he asked the sheriff, "Your signs are doing no good. Is it all right for me to put up my own sign?" The sheriff told him, "Sure thing, put up your own sign." He was going to let the farmer do just about anything in order to have him stop calling. Well, the sheriff got no more calls from the farmer. Three weeks after the farmers last call, the sheriff decided to call him. "How's the problem with those drivers. Did you put up your sign?" "Oh, I sure did. And not one chicken has been killed since then. I've got to go. I'm very busy." And he hung up the phone. The sheriff thought to himself, "I'd better go to that farmer's house and look at that sign... There might be something there that WE could use to slow down drivers." So the sheriff drove out to the farmer's house, and he saw the sign. It was a whole sheet of plywood. And written in large yellow letters were the words: SLOW DOWN! NUDIST COLONY
