_____________________________________________________ A young couple came into the church office to fill out a pre-marriage questionnaire form. The young man, who had never talked to a pastor before, was quite nervous and the pastor tried to put him at ease. When they came to the question, "Are you entering this marriage of your own free will?" There was a long pause. Finally, the girl got his attention by stomping on his toes, looked over at the apprehensive young man and firmly said, "Put down 'yes.'" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Ivana Clifford, 26, Manchester, New Hampshire Woman arrested for baking roommate’s ferret alive in the oven A woman in Manchester, New Hampshire, is facing an animal cruelty charge after she allegedly killed her roommate’s pet ferret by cooking the small animal the oven. Ivana Clifford, 26, was arrested early Wednesday morning after officers responded to a report of smoke in an apartment building. “The smoke detector woke us up,” her roommate, Cara Murray, told CBS Boston. The smoke was coming from the apartment’s oven. When her boyfriend, James Klimavich, opened the appliance, he found a dead ferret inside, she said. The ferret was Angel, one of three belonging to Murray. Angel was “very friendly, she was so cute, she was very energetic, she would run around with the other ferrets,” Murray told CBS Boston. “How can someone be so cruel to put an animal in your oven? Cooking it alive?” Murray said in an interview with WHDH. Firefighters confirmed to the station they found a ferret covered in burn marks in the apartment. “We love our animals so much. It was just devastating,” Murray said. Murray and Klimavich fingered Clifford as the suspect, and told police she was staying with them because she was 8 months pregnant, according to New England Cable News. Clifford was charged with one count of animal cruelty. She pleaded not guilty during her arraignment on Wednesday. Clifford allegedly told police she killed the pet because Murray had stolen her clothes, but Murray believes did it because Angel bit Clifford a few hours earlier. “Just nipped her, didn’t even draw blood, and that’s why she killed our ferret,” Murray told New England Cable News. Judge Gillian Abramson said the allegations against Clifford ?display a profound sense of sadism” and set bail at $10,000, according to WMUR TV. Murray is worried about Clifford’s ability to mother a child once she gives birth. “If she can throw a live ferret in the oven, what makes you think she won’t throw a baby in the oven if it cries?” Murray told NH1 News. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Denise Re: Computer slowed down Dear Webby, My computer has become very slow. I have done Defrag, etc.and turn it off at night to let it 'rest'. When I type a word, it has a delay and then the word is jumbled. Any suggestions? Denise Dear Denise Neither defrag nor resting have anything to do with that problem. I have not done a defrag for probably 3 years, and I don't turn my computer off to rest. I Restart it about once a month. And it runs just fine. 1) Run Malwarebytes to get rid of any really bad shit 2) Run Spybot-Search&Destroy 3) Run CrapCleaner 4) Run Should I Remove It from http://www.shouldiremoveit.com/ and get rid of any crap programs, that you don't really need or want Restart After that everything should be running smoothly. If you do it in that order, your machine will be as fast as it was when you bought it. Have FUN! DearWebby

A young boy was one of those little terrors who was hard to control. His father was surprised when his wife suggested that they buy him a bicycle for his birthday. He said, "Do you really believe that will improve his behavior?" She said, "Well, no, but it will spread it over a wider area."

A Scotsman, carrying a huge suitcase, has been riding a London bus for five miles along its route, all the while attempting to avoid the ticket collector. Finally, the conductor manages to corner him and tells him to pay up: "You've been on for five miles--that'll be 50p, please, and 10p for your suitcase." The Scotsman responds: "I ha'not, I want a ha'penny fare, just got on this vera moment." They begin to argue, and the ticket collector becomes more and more enraged and finally, as the bus is passing over London bridge, he grabs the Scotsman's suitcase, and hurls it out of the bus. It lands in the river and sinks without a trace. The Scotsman stands shocked for a moment and says to the ticket collector, "Not only are ya trin' to overcharge me for the ticket -- but now you're gone 'n drowned me boy Jonny." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Put Mayo Between Meat and Cheese To Prevent Soggy Sandwiches By Jessica [3 Posts, 18 Comments] My son loves Bologna and Cheese sandwiches with Mayo, but I've always hated knowing that by lunch he was eating a soggy sandwich. SO, I started putting the mayonnaise on between the bologna and cheese so that the bread doesn't get soggy. It's worked wonders and he doesn't complain. By Jessica from Richmond, KY Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ Back during the days of the Soviet Union, it took 10 years to get a car after you paid for one. Once, a young guy went to the car dealership to order a car. He paid the money, and the asked when can he come and get the car. "It will be here, waiting for you, exactly 10 years from today". The man signed the papers, started waliking away and then stooped, turned and asked the salesman: "Wait, will it be ready at the morning or at the afternnon". "What difference does it make?", asked the salesman. "Well", answered the man, "the plumber is coming in the morning". __________________________________________________

A tourist was admiring the necklace worn by a local Indian. "What is it made of?" she asked. "Alligator's teeth," the Indian replied. "I suppose," she said patronizingly, "that they mean as much to you as pearls do to us." "Yes, brave Oyster Slayer, they sure do." he replied. ___________________________________________________
