The husband stood up and shrugged saying, "This doesn't feel so bad." The instructor then dropped a pen and asked the husband to pick it up. "You want me to pick up the pen as if I were pregnant, the way my wife would do it?" the husband asked. "Exactly," replied the instructor. To the delight of the other husbands, he turned to his wife and said, "Honey, pick up that pen for me." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ While working at a Pizza Parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go.

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Oredwine for this story: Jerry, a handsome dude, walked into a sports bar around 9:58 PM. He sat down next to Jill at the bar and stared up to the TV. The 10:00 PM news was now on. The news crew was covering a story of a man on a ledge of a tall building preparing to jump. Jill looked at Jerry and said, "Do you think he'll jump?" Jerry replied, "You know, I bet he will." Jill said, "Well, I bet he won't." Jerry placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, "You're on." Just as Jill placed her money on the bar, the guy shown on the TV did a swan dive off the building, falling to his death. Jill was very upset but handed $20 to Jerry saying, "Fair's fair, here's your money." Jerry replied, "I can't take your money. I saw this earlier on the 5 o'clock news and knew he would jump." Jill replied, "I saw it too, but I didn't think he'd do it again." Jerry took the money without further argument. _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan Jose Vidrio Bibriesca, 43, Vail, Colorado Juan Jose Vidrio Bibriesca's cocaine fell when he took his hat off in court Authorities say a man who was in a Colorado court for violating his bond on a drug charge is in even more trouble after a wad of cocaine fell from his hat while he was in front of the judge. The Vail Daily reported Wednesday that 43-year-old Juan Jose Vidrio Bibriesca was standing next to two other defendants at an Eagle County District Court podium when he took his hat off and a square of folded paper fell out. A police officer watched the paper filled with cocaine fall to the floor, reports the AP, and after reviewing surveillance footage, authorities determined it fell from Bibriesca's hat. Bibriesca was then walked to the county jail, and now faces new charges of narcotics possession and another bond violation. Booking documents don't indicate if he has hired an attorney. The Vail Daily notes that Bibriesca is in the country illegally, meaning his legal woes aren't over. Even though he is in Colorado, he might get a free ticket to Mexico to visit relatives for Christmas. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Enid Re: Sky photo setup Dear Webby, Years ago you had a link for tripod adapters for sky photography.

Thanks to Dave for this story: The boss ordered one of his men to dig a hole eight feet deep. After the job was completed the boss returned and explained an error had been made and the hole wouldn't be needed. "Fill 'er up," he ordered. The worker did as he'd been told. But he ran into a problem. He couldn't get all the dirt packed back into the hole without leaving a mound on top. He went to the office and explained his problem. The boss snorted, "Honestly! The kind of help you get these days! There's obviously only one thing to do. You'll have to dig that hole deeper!"

Thanks to Julie for this story: Becky prepared a pasta dish for a dinner party she was giving. In her haste, however, she forgot to refrigerate the spaghetti sauce, and it sat on the counter all day. She was worried about spoilage, but it was too late to cook up another batch. She called the local Poison Control Center and voiced her concern. They advised Becky to just boil the sauce again and it should be fine. That night, the phone rang during dinner, and one of the guests volunteered to answer it. Becky's face dropped as the guest called out, "It's the Poison Control Center. They want to know how the spaghetti sauce turned out." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Slicing Meat Thinly Partially freeze meat before slicing and you can get thin, even cuts.

The psychiatrist was interviewing a first-time patient. "You say you're here," he inquired, "because your family is worried about your taste in socks?" "That's correct," muttered the patient. "I like wool socks." "But that's perfectly normal," replied the doctor. "Many people prefer wool socks to those made from cotton or acrylic. In fact, I myself like wool socks." "You DO?" exclaimed the man. "With oil and vinegar or just a squeeze of lemon?" ___________________________________________________

DearWebby Thanks to you I have unsubscribed to a dozen news. The Lamestream media and the conservative media are all full of BS, that I am as totally DISinterested in as in Christmas specials a month after Christmas. You stick to what I am interested in, so I dumped all other newsletters. Keep up the good work, DearWebby! Naomi ____________________________________________________
