One of them is known as Sister Mathematical (SM) and the other one is known as Sister Logical (SL). It is getting dark and they are still far away from the convent. SM: Have you noticed that a man has been following us for the past thirty-eight and a half minutes? I wonder what he wants. SL: It's logical. He wants to rape us. SM: Oh, no! At this rate he will reach us in 15 minutes at the most. What can we possibly do? SL: The only logical thing to do of course is to walk faster. SM: It's not working. SL: Of course it's not working. The man did the only logical thing. He started to walk faster too. SM: So, what shall we do? At this rate he will reach us in one minute. SL: The only logical thing we can do is split. You go that way and I'll go this way. He cannot follow us both. The man decided to follow Sister Logical. Sister Mathematical arrives at the convent and is worried what has happened to Sister Logical. Then Sister Logical arrives. SM: Sister Logical! Thank God you are here! Tell me what happened! SL: The only logical thing happened. The man couldn't follow us both, so he followed me. SM: Yes, yes! But what happened then? SL:The only logical thing happened. I started to run as fast as I could and he started to run as fast as he could. SM: And? SL: The only logical thing happened. He reached me. SM: Oh, dear! What did you do? SL: The only logical thing to do. I lifted my dress up. SM: Oh, Sister! What did the man do? SL: The only logical thing to do. He pulled down his pants. SM: Oh, no! What happened then? SL: Isn't it logical,Sister? A nun with her dress up can run faster than a man with his pants down.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Diana Marini, 29, Islip, NY Woman left 6-year-old in taxi while she robbed bank /font> Police say a woman robbed a bank on Long Island while her 6- year-old daughter waited in a taxi.

I got some fairly expensive aftermarket speakers for it, but the sound is still quite trashy compared to my home stereo. Help! Karen Dear Karen Those "fairly expensive aftermarket speakers" are not worth the shipping cost. As you noticed. Get a stereo cable, exactly like the one leading from the computer to the first of those squeakers, and connect that to the AUX-IN on your home stereo, or any old boom box. Switch the stereo or boom box to AUX, and you have sound the way it was meant to be. As a free bonus you have the headphone jack on the stereo for plugging in the earphone half of a communication head set. The pink microphone plug still goes to the pink computer microphone jack. Have FUN! DearWebby

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, "Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit." "And why not, darling?" "You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning!"

Thanks to the Kidd family for this story: A Sunday School teacher of preschoolers asked his class, "Where is Jesus today?" Steven raised his hand and said, "He's in heaven." Mary was called on and answered, "He's in my heart." Little Davie, waving his hand furiously, blurted out, "I know! I know! He's in our bathroom!" The teacher was completely at a loss for a few very long seconds. Finally, he gathered his wits and asked Little Davie how he knew this. Little Davie said, "Well... every morning, my father gets up, bangs on the bathroom door, and yells, "Jesus Christ, are you still in there?!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Recipe: Ramen Noodle Omelete By Alyssa M. [1 Post] Super easy and cheap, this meal is great for anyone trying to eat on a budget, and sometimes just when the craving hits! I grew up eating these as my parents made them a lot when they were newly married and it just stuck. Probably one of the first meals I learned to make on my own! Total Time: 10-15 min Yield: 1 omelete Ingredients: 1 package ramen noodles (I have only used chicken flavor) ($0.15) 1 egg ($0.10) 1/2 cup cheese (I use cheddar jack but any should work fine) ($0.50) Steps: Cook the pasta only, either on the stove or in the microwave until soft. Then drain In a bowl, whip the egg and noodles together with a fork and then add in the spice packet. I only use half because its a bit too much favor without the water to tone it down. Heat a skillet that has been sprayed with nonstick or tiny bit of oil as this usually sticks a lot, to medium heat. Pour pasta and egg mixture on and flatten with spatula. Cook for a min or so on the one side and then flip over Have cheese ready to sprinkle on top as soon as you flip it over. Turn the heat down a little so the cheese has a chance to melt. Remove from skillet and enjoy! Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Same as KD flavor packets, those flavor packets are best reserved for poisoning pigeons in the park. A Tablespoon full from a 79 cent can of condensed vegetable soup will give your Ramen noodles just the right amount of flavor, and some token veggies on top. There is no need to use that pigeon poison on YOUR food! Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ Dear Webby I'm a chaplain at the County senior citizens' home. The other day I saw a 96-year-old lady knitting a sweater for her granddaughter. "What kind of material are you using?" I asked. "She said, "Virgin wool." "Where do you get that," I asked. "Ugly sheep," she smiled. Jerry __________________________________________________

Two little old ladies are sitting on a bench in Miami Beach. A man walks over and sits down on the other end of the bench. After a few moments, the woman next to him asks, "Are you a stranger here?" He replies, "I used to live here years ago." "So, where were you all these years?" "In prison," he says. "For what did they put you in prison?" He looks at her, and very quietly says, "I killed my wife." "Oh," says the woman, and turning to the other woman proclaims: "Yay!! He's single !" ___________________________________________________

I had been teaching my seventh-graders about World War II, and a test question was, "What was the largest amphibious assault of all time?" Expecting to see "the D-Day invasion" as the answer, I found instead on one paper, "Moses and the plague of frogs." ____________________________________________________
