There were about sixteen flights lined up waiting to get clearance to take off. Then the other Stewardess got a message from the Pilot that the tower said the wind had changed 180 degrees and they were first in line to take off, and to have everyone buckle up. Without thinking she just announced "Please buckle up, grab your drinks and hold your nuts, we're taking off". _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A group of young medical students started their psychiatry rotation and were a little worried about what they would encounter, after hearing all the rumors from other students. On the first day, they went to the Psychiatric ward and were quite relieved when the Registrar, Dr. Nathaniel Bigelow, introduced himself and took the group into the teaching room. Dr. Bigelow told the medical students about all the patients on the ward, with precise details and complete information. Unfortunately, the worries of young medical students returned in an instant, when the real Registrar entered the teaching room and said, "Good morning, everyone. I am Doctor David Filmore. Let me introduce Hank Bigelow, here. He has been one of our patients for quite some time, now." ______________________________________________________ Not NOW, Johnny! _____________________________________________________

_____________________________________________________ A couple was married for 40 years and decided they wanted to renew their vows and planned a second wedding. They were discussing the details with their friends. The wife wasn't going to wear a traditional bridal gown and she started describing the dress she was planning to wear. One of her friends asked what color shoes she had to go with the dress. She replied, "Silver." At that point, her husband quipped, "Yes, silver, to match her hair." She looked at her husband, who had been getting a little bald and said, "So, I guess you are going barefoot." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Cheyenne Amber West, Vero Beach, Florida Florida woman caught swapping barcodes at Walmart A Florida woman is accused of paying only $3.70 for nearly $2,000 worth of electronics after she allegedly swapped barcodes at a local Walmart.

A family from the hills was visiting the city and were in a shopping mall for the first time in their life. The father and son were strolling around while the wife shopped. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again. The boy asked, "Paw, What's 'at?" The father said, "Son, I dunno. I ain't never seen anything like that in my entire life. I ain't got no idea what the heck it is." While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a large old woman in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened, the lady rolled between them into a small room, and they closed. The boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially. They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. When the number one was lit again, the walls opened up. The boy and his father watched in amazement as a beautiful young woman stepped out of the small room. The father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son, "Boy, go get your mother."

Thanks to Michelle for this one: The garbage man came early today. I heard his truck from inside the house so I threw on my robe and ran outside to catch him. He was pulling away from the neighbors curb when he saw me running and waiving my arms. "Hey! Wait!" I yelled. "Am I too late?" He looked me up and down and said, "Nah, just jump in." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Plastic Bags on Your Feet When Painting If you are painting and don't want to get paint on your shoes or the floor throughout the rest of your house, tie plastic grocery bags over your shoes. Then tear off the grocery bags when you need to leave the room you are painting and put on a new pair before you re-enter the room. It's not very fashionable but it does the trick. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com Pros use old, paint splattered but still firm and tight slippers for painting. They can drop them at the door without using hands, if they have to go to another room. Those are much safer on ladders or when reaching over furniture. Some also have a clean pair of soft and fuzzy slippers waiting at the door for going to clean areas. A minute of preparation can save a lot of cleaning. Have FUN! DearWebby ____________________________________________________ A man was visiting his elderly neighbor and was given a tour of his home. In the den was a stuffed lion. The neighbor asked, "When did you bag him?" The old man said proudly, "That was three years ago, when I went hunting with my ex-wife."

While the family was sitting around the dinner table, Jennifer, 5, turned to her brother Andy, 3, and pointed to her dad. "That's not your real father," she said, startling the whole family. "Yes, he is!" Andy replied. "No, he's not," Jennifer insisted. "God is your heavenly father." Then pointing at her dad, she said, "That's your homely father!" ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Sandie for this story: A man and his wife were spending the day at the zoo. She was wearing a loose fitting pink dress, sleeveless with straps. He was wearing his usual jeans and T-shirt. As they walked through the ape exhibit, they passed in front of a large, silverback gorilla. Noticing the wife, the gorilla went crazy. He jumped on the bars, and holding on with one hand and 2 feet he grunted and pounded his chest with his free hand. He was obviously excited at the pretty lady in the pink dress. The husband, noticing the excitement, thought this was funny. He suggested that his wife tease the poor fellow some more by puckering her lips and wiggling her bottom. She played along and the gorilla got even more excited, making noises that would wake the dead. She got into the spirit of things and started jumping up and down and teasing the ape without any more prompting. This drove the gorilla absolutely crazy, and he started doing flips. Then the husband grabbed his wife, ripped open the door to the cage, pushed her in with the gorilla and slammed the cage door shut. "Now, tell him, you have a headache." ____________________________________________________
