A little while later a Priest came along and asked the little boy what he had. The little boy replied, "This is the most powerful liquid in the world, it's called turpentine." The Priest said, "No, the most powerful liquid in the world is Holy Water. If you take some of this Holy Water and rub it on a pregnant women's belly, she'll pass a healthy baby." The little boy replied, "You take some of this here turpentine and rub it on a cat's butt and he'll pass a Harley Davidson." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Martin for this story: The wife came home early and found her husband in their bedroom making love to a very attractive young woman. And was somewhat upset. "You are a disrespectful pig!" she screamed. "How dare you do this to me, a faithful wife, the mother of your children! I'm leaving you. I want a divorce straight away!" And Paddy (for it was he) replied "Hang on just a minute luv, so at least I can tell you what happened." "Fine, go ahead", she sobbed, " but they'll be the last words you'll say to me!" And Paddy began - "Well, I was getting into the car to drive home and this young lady here asked me for a lift. She looked so down and out and defenseless that I took pity on her and let her into the car. I noticed that she was very thin, not well dressed and very dirty. She told me that she hadn't eaten for three days! So, in my compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the enchiladas I made for you last night , the ones you wouldn't eat because you think I am a bad cook. The poor thing devoured them in moments. Since she needed a good cleanup I suggested a shower and while she was doing that I noticed her clothes were dirty and full of holes so I threw them away. Then, as she needed clothes, I gave her the designer jeans that you have had for a few years, but don't use because you say they are too tight. I also gave her the underwear that was your anniversary present, which you don't use because I don't have good taste. I found the sexy blouse my sister gave you for Christmas that you don't use just to annoy her, and I also donated those boots you bought at the expensive boutique and don't use because someone at work has a pair just the same..." Here Paddy took a quick breath and continued, "She was so grateful for my understanding and help and as I walked her to the door she turned to me with tears in her eyes and said, "Please... do you have anything else that your wife doesn't use?" So, if you want a divorce, dont let the door slam your butt." ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Ray and his live-in girlfriend were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. She said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee." Ray said, "You are in charge of the cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee." She replied, "No you should do it, and besides it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee." Ray replies, "I can't believe that, show me." So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and shows him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says "HEBREWS" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mai Ly Thuy Johnson, 35, Dujuan Jerel Johnson, 36, Covington, Lopuisiana Traffic stop leads to big heroin bust A traffic stop on Interstate 10 in Calcasieu Parish has led to the arrest of a Covington-area woman on multiple narcotics and weapons related charges.

How do YOU deal with the morons at Network Solutions? They messed up my domain registration again, and refuse to fix it. Linda Dear Linda Usually it is a total waste of time trying to argue with them. Neither diplomacy nor cussing works. Just put them behind you and move your domain registration to a better registrar. The only good thing I can say about Notwork Delusions is that they annoyed me enough in the early 90's to not only move all domains away from them, but to offer registration services to all of our clients myself. It was really easy to do. All I had to do was do the opposite of what they do. And I can do it for $25 LESS than what they charge. Have FUN! DearWebby

My mother was away all weekend at a business conference. During a break, she decided to call home collect. My six-year-old brother picked up the phone and heard a stranger's voice say, "We have a Marcia on the line. Will you accept the charges?" Frantic, he dropped the receiver and came charging outside screaming, "Dad! They've got Mom! And they want money!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com A Separate Bag for Socks I use a clothespin to attach a mesh lingerie washing bag to everyone's hamper and trained them to put socks and tights in there. No more single socks! If for some reason we do find single socks lying around they go directly into the hamper. When I pull one out of the dryer I then know to put it in the "single sock" basket to await it's mate. Every few months I throw out any unmated socks. By Lily Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ From Steve I was working in the sun all day, putting finishing touches on the new deck outside my house. My sister pulled into the driveway, greeted me, and looked over my work. "Wow, Steve," she gushed, "you're an expert." Gloating, feeling like the king that I am, but trying not to seem egotistical, I responded, "Once you get going, it's pretty easy." She looked puzzled, and I wondered if I'd misunderstood her. So I asked, "What did you say, Jen?" She replied, "I said, your neck's burnt!"

Mrs. Morris Spiegelbaum beckoned to a salesman in Bergdorf Goodman's, pointed to white wool designer dress on a mannequin, and said, "Hey Sonny boy, so how much is the dress on that store dummy over there?" "That dress is $899.95, Madam," sneered the rather snotty salesman. "Oy! For $99.95 I could get the same dress at Klein's Bargain Store downtown!" "But Madam," said the salesman, "You'll find that the dress at Klein's is recycled wool. This original is 100% pure virgin wool." "Nu! So for $800 I should be caring what the sheep do at night?" ___________________________________________________
