He asks the man his name. "Fred," he replies. "Fred what?" the officer asks. "Just Fred," the man responds. The officer is in a good mood and thinks he might just give the fellow a break and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer then presses him for the last name. The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it. The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. "Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?" The man replies, "It's a long story, so stay with me." "I was born Fred Dingaling. I know -- a funny last name. The kids used to tease me all the time. So I stayed to myself, studied hard, and got good grades. When I got older I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Dingaling, MD. "After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school. Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through school, got my degree, so then I was Fred Dingaling, MD, DDS. "Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave me VD. So now I was Fred Dingaling, MD, DDS, with VD. Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS. Then I was Fred Dingaling, MD with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Dingaling with VD. Then the VD took away my Dingaling, so now I am Just Fred." The officer walked away in tears, laughing. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Dianne for bringing back this classic. It used to be very popular when part of Hongkong moved to BC and turned Vancouver into Hongkoofa.

"Yesterday I get two hunat dolla fo yen - today I get hunat eighty?" The teller says, "Fluctuations."

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tonya Waddell, Richmond Early College High School Hamlet, North Carolina North Carolina school district recalls yearbooks over president's quote A North Carolina high school recalled its yearbooks after the hysterically fanatic Hillarite principal Tonya Waddell saw a senior's quote which read "Build that wall" President Donald Trump The hysterical Hillarite objected to seeing a quote by the elected president and recalled the year books. Only quotes by Hillary are allowed. They will use taxpayer money to refund for all the books. The school district said on Facebook Tuesday. "The principal immediately collected the distributed yearbooks." Free speech is definitely NOT allowed. And they bitch about North Korea! ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Anna Re: RansomWare Dear Webby What's the real story about all this WanaCrypt0r, that the media can't stop blathering about? I got W7, updated, and MalwareBytes PRO lifetime as you suggested years ago. I also have MailWasher, just for my private enjoyment. Sure is fun to see how it makes the spam fly to hell, UNREAD, just showing in the pie chart. Do I have to worry about that Ransomware? Keep up the good work! Anna Dear Anna No, you don't have to worry about it. MalwareBytes PRO protects you. The free version apparently might not protect against it, but you are covered. Having Windows updated is also quite necessary these days. Don't worry, they finished with messing with the user interface in W7 and are just doing security fixes nowadays. Anybody, who signed up for the free 2019 update deal for industrial / commercial XP users when I wrote about it 3-4 years ago, is also covered. Those, who were too lazy or not smart enough, like the British National Health Servive or some European car manufacturing plants, well, they are up shit creek without a paddle now. With a virus, that spreads laterally across networks, not point to point, the unprotected British National Health Service was a high speed conveyor belt going in all directions. I imagine somebody might get frowned at. Have FUN! DearWebby
One day, while a woodcutter was cutting a branch of a tree above a river, his axe fell into the river. The river was deep and swift; he could not retrieve his axe, and he was too poor to buy a new one. Knowing that he was doomed to poverty and starvation, he began to weep. As he sobbed, God appeared and asked, "Why are you crying?" The woodcutter told Him about his lost axe. God went down into the water and reappeared with a wonderful golden axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked. The woodcutter said, "No." God again went down and came up with a silver axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked. The woodcutter said, "No." God went down again and came up with the woodcutter's old iron axe. "Is this your axe?" God asked. The woodcutter said, "Yes." God was pleased with the man's honesty and gave him all the three axes. The woodcutter went home happily. One day the woodcutter was walking with his wife along the riverbank and his wife fell into the river and was swept away. When he began crying, God appeared and asked him, "Why are you crying?" "My wife has fallen into water." God went down into the water and came up with Jennifer Lopez. "Is this your wife?" God asked. "Yes," the woodcutter said. God was furious. "Once you were an honest man - but now you have become a liar and a cheat!!" The man quickly said, "Forgive me, my Lord. It is a misunderstanding. If I say 'No' to Jennifer Lopez, you will come up with Catherine Zeta Jones. If I also say 'No' to her, you will finally come up with my wife, and I will say 'Yes.' Then you will give all the three to me! I am a poor man. I will not be able to look after all the three. So, that's why I had to say 'Yes!' "

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Peeling Hard Boiled Eggs By Jean Genie [59 Posts, 857 Comments] I just cut a piece of shell, then insert the spoon and essentially 'spoon' the egg. By which I mean that I make the spoon come between the egg and the shell. In this way, the shell effortlessly separates from the cooked white. Even if it decides to splinter and stick, the act of making the spoon scrape against the shell makes the problem entirely disappear. I actually do something similar with avocados. I think they gave me the idea. Source: My own experience

The pastor turns to the priest and asks, "Do you think the sign should maybe just say 'Bridge Out'?" ___________________________________________________

It's an organization. It's Theater Guild." "I told you, sir. I have no listing for a Theodore Guilt." "Not *Theodore*! *Theater*! The word is *theater*. T-H-E-A-T-E-R!"

"Doc," said the young man lying down on the couch, "You've got to help me! Every night I have the same horrible dream. I'm lying in bed when all of a sudden five women rush in and start tearing off my clothes." The psychiatrist nodded, "And what do you do?" "I push them away!" "I see. And what can I do to help you with this?" The patient implored, "Please, please,... Break my arms!"
