______________________________________________________ Why do you have to be a nonconformist like everybody else? --- James Thurber (1894 - 1961) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Gloria for this story: Fresh from the shower, a woman stands in front of the mirror, complaining to her husband that her breasts are too small. Instead of characteristically telling her it's not so, the husband uncharacteristically comes up with a suggestion. "If you want your breasts to grow, then every day take a piece of toilet paper and rub it between your breasts for a few seconds." Willing to try anything, the wife fetches a piece of toilet paper, stands in front of the mirror and rubs it between her breasts. "How long will this take?" she asks. "They'll grow larger over a period of years," he replies. The wife stops, getting suspicious. "Why do you think rubbing a piece of toilet paper between my breasts every day will make them bigger over the years?" "Worked for your butt, didn't it?" He lived, and with some therapy, he may even walk again... _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ One evening, a wife drew her husband's attention to the couple next door and said, "Do you see that couple? How devoted they are? He kisses her every time they meet. Why don't you do that?" "I would love to," replied the husband, "Just sidetrack her hubby for a few minutes." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Sleeping is not just for meetings any more! Australia - News.com Rather than crumbling into unsightly heaps on their desks, Sydney workers may soon have access to a comfortable and legitimate place to nap at their offices. MetroNaps Australia launched its sleep pods in the foyer of the ABN AMRO building, on the corner of Phillip and Bent Sts in the city. Busy workers are invited to stop in and put up their feet for 20 minutes to relax and rejuvenate in style. Nappers' privacy is secured by the darkness of the dome shaped pod, which lets them drift into a light sleep to the sound of relaxing music on a pair of headphones. It is a pastime that people in Copenhagen and New York are already starting to enjoy. "A nap will improve mood levels, information processing abilities and production levels of staff." Following an efficient 20-minute nap at noon yesterday, futures broker Mark Bryant said the time out was well-spent. "I found especially the music and blackout effect helped clear my mind to be able to refocus," he said. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Adrian Harold Pounders, Crocket, Texas Man Arrested On Meth Charges Wears Ironic T-Shirt In Mug Shot A Texas man was wearing an anti-drug T-shirt when he was arrested last weekend for alleged possession of methamphetamine. In his booking photograph, Adrian Harold Pounders wore a top that read “DontMethWithMe.org.” The web address he proudly promoted on his chest ironically links to an anti-meth drive that warns Texans about the dangers of the highly addictive drug. Pounders, 47, was detained when cops raided his home in Crockett on Sunday. According to a Crockett Police Department Facebook post, the officers executed a search warrant after being tipped off during an earlier traffic stop that illegal narcotics were located inside his residence. “While executing the search warrant officers recovered methamphetamine, and numerous items of drug paraphernalia,” the Facebook post adds. The value of the drugs has not been revealed. Pounders was charged with felony possession of a controlled substance and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, reports KYTX. He also faces charges of abandoning or endangering a child, as his 13-month-old son was at the property. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Anita Re: PayPal Congratulation mail Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I got some mails, supposedly from PayPal, that start with Congratulations Dear Lucky Winning, We are very happy to inform you ...

One weekend my friend, a nurse, was looking after her six year old nephew when he fell off a playground slide and hit his head. Worried that he might have a concussion, she checked him all night. Every hour, she'd gently shake him and ask, "What's your name?" Soon, he began moaning in protest each time she entered the room. When she went in at 5 A.M., she found something white on his forehead. Leaning close, she saw a crayon-scrawled message taped to his forehead. It read, "My name is Daniel." --------------------- They usually just do that with serious head injuries and brain surgery, but some nurses can get quite carried away. I remember one who insisted on writing her name and the time of each check onto the sole of my right foot with a fine point ball pen. And when she ran out of space, she continued on my left foot. I tell ya, that can wake a guy out of the most cozy coma!

>From Trevor: DRAWBACKS OF WORKING IN A CUBICLE [Or, "Welcome to my life."] * Not being able to check E-mail attachments without first seeing who's behind you. * Fabric walls offer little protection from gunfire. * The walls are too close together for the hammock to work right. * Prison cells are not only bigger, they have beds. * When you quit and walk out, there's no door to slam. * Being told to "think outside the box" when you're in a freakin' box all day long. * 23 power cords - 1 outlet. * The carpet has been there since 1976 (or before) and shows more signs of life than your coworkers. * If you talk to yourself it causes all the surrounding cubicle inhabitants to pop their heads over the wall and say "What? I didn't hear you." * You always have the feeling that someone is watching you, but by the time you turn to look they're gone. * When you kill a fly with your 16 inch plastic ruler, a dozen people dial 911 to report the shooting. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Get Firewood Now, Don't Wait for Winter You can save money on firewood by getting it in early summer and late spring. For starters, you pay a premium the closer you get to cold weather. And, you don't have to limit yourself to buying firewood that is completely dry, it will cure over the summer months and be ready to burn when you need it. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ A traveling evangelist always put on a grand finale at his revival meetings, When he was to preach at a church, he would secretly hire a small boy to sit in the ceiling rafters with a dove in a cage. Toward the end of his sermon, the preacher would shout for the Holy Spirit to come down, and the boy in the rafters would dutifully release the dove. At one revival meeting, however, nothing happened when the preacher called for the Holy Spirit to descend. He again raised his arms and exclaimed: "Come down, Holy Spirit!" Still no sign of the dove. The preacher then heard the anxious voice of a small boy call down from the rafters: "Sir, a big black cat just ate the Holy Spirit. Shall I throw down the cat?" __________________________________________________
