He was greatly interested in it, and the next morning proceeded to baptize his three cats in the bathtub. The kitten bore it very well, and so did the young cat, but the old family cat rebelled. It struggled with him, clawed and tore him, and got away. With considerable effort he caught it again and proceeded with the ceremony. But she acted worse than ever, clawed at him, spit, and scratched his hands and face. Finally, after barely getting her splattered with water, he dropped her on the floor in disgust and said: "Fine, just be a Methodist." ______________________________________________________ Oops-fergot-to-hold-it-with-both-hands! _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Barry Baker, 29, West Chester, Pennsylvania PA veteran's grave robber arrested for assaulting man with cerebral palsy. The Pennsylvania dirtbag arrested for sucker punching a man with cerebral palsy is actually a worse person than he appears, records show. Barry Baker, 29, was charged earlier this month with battery for an unprovoked 2:30 AM attack outside a 7-Eleven in West Chester (where Baker has lived and worked for a tow company). As seen in the above surveillance video, Baker, an ex-con, walloped the 22-year-old victim after mocking the way the man walked. Though Baker--charged with assault, harassment, and disorderly conduct--was initially released on $25,000 bail, he will soon return to jail after a judge this week issued an arrest warrant charging him with violating his probation. According to court records, Baker was placed on three years probation in October 2015 for violating terms of a probation sentence imposed following his conviction for theft from a motor vehicle. In addition to his arrest this month, Baker allegedly violated his probation by not paying restitution, fines, and court costs of nearly $4500. Bakerís rap sheet includes convictions for theft, forgery, conspiracy, and receiving stolen property. The latter count stemmed from Bakerís involvement in a crime on par with punching a guy with cerebral palsy in the face. In 2007, Baker pleaded guilty to his role in the theft of hundreds of bronze flag holders that marked the graves of veterans at two Pennsylvania cemeteries. Baker and his accomplices stole the markers so that they could be sold as scrap metal. Police recovered nearly 250 flag holders--worth about $10,000--from a Pennsylvania scrap company. Baker, who was charged with 143 counts of intentional desecration of a venerated object, pleaded guilty to felony conspiracy and receiving stolen property counts. He was sentenced to a minimum of eleven-and-a-half months in jail and a maximum of 23 months in custody. He was also ordered to participate in a drug or alcohol treatment program and undergo a mental health evaluation. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Elsinore Re: How to choose domain names Dear Webby I know you mentioned it before, but I didn't need that info at the time and did not save it. What's to watch out for when choosing a domain name? Thanks Elsinore Dear Elsinore Above all, a domain name has to be memorable. It should be short enough and clear enough, so that you can shout it across a street or meeting room, and have people remember it correctly. Also make sure that the extension is a ".com" or a ".biz". ".com" is what people type on autopilot, without thinking. That is the most valuable one. "biz" is memorable enough that it works nearly as well. The name registration cost is the same. We charge $12 for ".com", "biz", ".net", ".org" and some of the less useful ones that I don't recommend. To test memorability, sing a name in the shower. If it sounds silly or awkward, try something else. If it sounds good and does not make you stumble, or cringe, then you have a winner. I have recommended that for over ten years and it has helped countless people to find a good name. You can always Skype me and tell me what you have in mind, and I'll help you find a short and memorable name. Have FUN! DearWebby
A veterinarian was feeling ill and went to see her doctor. The doctor asked her all the usual questions, about symptoms, how long had they been occurring, etc., when she interrupted him: "Hey look, I'm a vet -- I don't need to ask my patients these kind of questions: I can tell what's wrong just by looking. Why can't you?" The doctor nodded, looked her up and down, wrote out a prescription, and handed it to her and said, "There you are. Of course, if that doesn't work, we'll have to have you put down."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Organizing Baby Clothes Quite often when you buy or are given baby or toddler clothes they come in outfits. A matching top and bottom, maybe even with a matching hat. One way to keep these items together is to fold them and put them in large zip-lock bags before putting them away. You will be able to easily see the outfit and the bags and be used over and over again.

He explained to the congregation that the new glasses were causing problems, then said, "I hope you will excuse my continually removing my glasses.

A man's car breaks down right in front of a farm and he's trying to fix it when he hears a voice coming behind him, "You have water in the gas tank." The man turns around and all he sees is a cow from the farm. He goes back to his car and again the same voice says, "You have water in the gas tank." The man turns around again and he sees nothing and nobody except the cow, and the voice defintiely came from the cow, "You have water in the gas tank." The man is shocked so he knocks on the door of the farmer's house. When the farmer answers the door the man says, "The cow talked to me and said I had water in my gas tank. He can talk?" The farmer replied, "Ignore her, that cow barely understands Diesel engines and doesn't have a clue about gas engines."
