Finally the groom threw a large towel over the cage and threatened to give the parrot to the zoo if he didn't quit it. The next morning, packing to return home, the couple couldn't close a large suitcase. The groom said, "Darling, you get on top and I'll try." That didn't work. Figuring they needed more weight on the lid, she said, "Sweetheart, you get on top and I'll try." Still no success. Then he said, "Look. Let's both get on top and try." At that point, the parrot yanked away the towel and said, "Zoo or no zoo. This I gotta see!!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Amber Schmunk, 28, Fredonia Wisconsin Mom Accused Of Driving Minivan With Son And Plastic Pool Tied To Top A mother in Wisconsin is facing a felony charge of recklessly endangering safety after she allegedly strapped her 9-year-old son to the top of a minivan on top of a plastic pool. Amber Schmunk, 28, of Fredonia was charged earlier this month for the September 9 incident, which started after officers received a call reporting a child on top of a vehicle holding down a plastic pool, according to the Ozaukee Press. A witness later reported seeing Schmunk pull over and take the child off the minivan roof and wedge the pool inside the vehicle before dropping it off at her sister’s house, according to WTMJ TV. Officers who arrived on scene questioned Schmunk about her son’s alleged wild ride. They said she admitted the boy had been on top of the minivan on the road “but only for a short time, maybe 20-30 seconds,” according to WITI TV. Schmunk allegedly told authorities she had picked up a molded plastic pool at another house, but didn’t have enough room inside the minivan. She allegedly said she “decided to put the pool on top of the minivan, but had no way to strap it down, so she had her child climb on the roof and hold it down while she drove,” according to a police report obtained by WITI TV. Police said Schmunk told them she thought her actions were “OK,” since her dad let her do things like that when she was nine. She added that her son was safe on top of the minivan she tied him down with a strap on top of the pool, according to WDJT TV. Schmunk is due in court on Nov. 14. If convicted, she faces up to five years in prison and five years of extended supervision, according to the Ozaukee Press. ------------- I know the kid was perfectly safe. Most of us did MUCH more adventurous stuff, but nowadays, political correctness overrules common sense, and she will have to pay the consequences. No more standing on the roof and trimming overhanging branches with a chainsaw or riding on top of a load of firewood. That is not politically correct, even though most of us have done it without any worry. I hope she gets off with probation. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Erika Re: Old music Dear Webby, I'm dressing up a geneology site my aunt did, and I need some really old music. I don't mean Beethoven on CD, but popular music from the early days of recording. Where can I find that kind of music? Erika Dear Erika The earliest popular recordings were probably the 78 RPM laquer records. You can download music taken off those records from http://www.archive.org/details/78rpm For best results, save the MP3 file to your computer and then play it, instead of streaming it. Just scrolling down the menu gives you an idea of their load. It is amzing what you can find, for example "I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas by Vicki Dale; The Peter Pan Orchestra" Or the Collected works of Caruso, all originals without amplifaction or studio effects or editing. That will knock your socks off! Unlike tyoday's screechers, Caruso eally could sing! Please keep in mind that if even just 1% of all Humor Letter subscribers go there at the same time, that site will be totally overloaded. Just save the link and try later. Have FUN! DearWebby

A swimming instructor at a Los Angeles university was quizzing a group of female students on Red Cross life saving and water safety techniques. They answered all of her questions easily until she posed this one: "Which article of clothing would you remove last if you fell from a boat or dock fully clothed?" Everyone mentioned something different. It was evident that no one knew the correct answer, so the instructor helped out. "The blouse," she said, "because the air gets under the blouse and acts like a buoy!" The subsequent uproar ended the class.

"I suppose so," she replied. "Would you sleep in the same bed with him?" "Well, it's the only bed in the house, so I have no choice." "Would you make love to him?" "Honey," the woman said patiently, "he would be my husband." "Would you give him my car?" "No," she yawned, "He can't drive a manual transmission car." __________________________________________________

With the help of a fertility specialist, a 65 year old woman has a baby. All her relatives come to visit and meet the newest member of their family. When they ask to see the baby, the 65 year old mother says "not yet." A little later they ask again to see the baby. Again the mother says "not yet." Finally they say, "When can we see the baby?" And the mother says, "When the baby cries." They all ask, "Why do we have to wait until the baby cries?" The new mother says, "because I forgot where I put it." ___________________________________________________
