We'll never regret piercing our ears. We have the ability to dress ourselves. If we forget to shave, no one has to know. New lipstick gives us a whole new lease on life. We can be groupies. Male groupies are stalkers. We don't look like a frog in a blender when dancing. Free drinks, Free dinners, Free movies (you get the point). We can fully assess a person just by looking at their shoes. There are times when chocolate really can solve all your problems. ______________________________________________________ With the divorce rate so high in America, a new organization has been formed called, "Marriage Anonymous."

_____________________________________________________ A sailor, while bringing flowers to a cemetery, noticed an old Chinese man placing a bowl of rice on a nearby grave. The sailor walked up to the man and asked, "When do you expect your friend to come up and eat the rice?" The old Chinese man replied with a smile, "Same time your friend comes up to smell the flowers." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Daniel Gross, Age 19, Modesto, CA Melissa Leonardo, Age 25, Modesto, CA Both suspects are in custody at Santa Rita Jail. California killers identified by 19-year-old victim’s last words Officials have identified two people that were arrested Monday in the brutal stabbing death of 19-year-old Lizette Cuesta in Livermore, California. Daniel Gross and Melissa Leonardo, both of Modesto, are suspected of stabbing Cuesta several times and leaving her body on Tesla Road in Livermore. Cuesta was flown to a nearby hospital, where she died. Investigators say Cuesta used her final words to identify her killers. “This victim really tried to survive, and she fought and she fought,” said Sgt. Ray Kelly with the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office. “The last thing, we believe, that she was able to do was to point us in the direction of the people that killed her. And that’s pretty remarkable.” Richard Loadholt was carpooling to work with three other friends for an early shift at UPS when they found Cuesta. He told KTXL the young woman was in such bad shape he couldn’t make out the color of her hair. “She laid down for almost three minutes at one period, and we told her to get up. She knew she had to get up and I commend that,” he said. Friend Alex Yanez tells KTXL that Cuesta was a very positive woman and a determined skateboarder. “Guys would fall just as hard and not get back up the rest of the day. She would fall and get right back up and try it,” Yanez said. “If she wanted that trick bad enough she would get it.” _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: David Re: gmail Dear Webby, I writing to ask if you could send me a full version of today's picture. I want to set that as my desktop. I also want to tell your subscribers about gmail. I've had gmail since June of 2005 and I haven't missed a single issue of the Humor Letter, or any other correspondence, with gmail. They have plenty of features including tons of storage. The gmail notifier lets me know when I get a new message and their spam blocker sends the spam to another folder so I can decide what I do and do not want to read. It also has an easy way for you to set it up with Eudora or Outlook Express or any other email reader. I've had hotmail and yahoo email accounts but gmail is the best I've used. David Dear David The big picture is at You can usually get the big picture by clicking on it. And I will gladly feature your comment about gmail. I had the same good experience with it. I mainly use it to test HOW the Humor Letter looks on gmail, and gmail has worked fine every day. Have FUN! DearWebby

Groan Alert! While handing a 25 cent-off coupon to the supermarket clerk at the checkout counter, a woman inadvertently missed her hand, and the coupon slipped beneath the scale and was gone. The checker looked distressed, so the woman said, "That's Okay, it's in coupon heaven now." "Coupon heaven?", the checker said. "Yes", the woman said, "That's where coupons go when they die." "Only the redeemed ones!", said the checker.

An automobile salesman was pleasantly bewildered when he sold a new car to a little old lady, some 75 years of age, who had previously resisted his sales pitch. Elated over his success, he asked her, as he was filling out the necessary papers, what had finally made her choose his car. "Well," she said, "I visited four dealers and mentioned your car to all of them. They all agreed on one thing - that your car has the fastest depreciation of all the cars on the market. That was good enough for me." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Sawdust Floor Sweeping Compound Use this recipe to help keep dust down when sweeping your basement garage or workshop.

He became something of a local joke when a newspaper began keeping a record of his predictions and showed that he'd been wrong almost three hundred times in a single year. That kind of notoriety was enough to get him fired. He moved to another part of the country and applied for a similar job. One blank on the job application called for the reason for leaving his previous position. In the blank he wrote quite honestly, "The climate didn't agree with me."

The Pope is visiting Washington, DC and President Trump takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac sailing on the Presidential yacht. They're admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope's hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water. Secret service guys start to launch a boat, but President Trump waves them off, saying, "Wait, wait. I'll take care of this. Don't worry." Trump then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father's little hat, bends over and picks it up, then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard. He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence. The next morning the headlines on CNN and in the AOL/New York Times, Boston Globe, Milwaukee Sentinel-Journal, Minneapolis Tribune, Denver Post, Albuquerque Journal, Los Angeles Times and the San Francisco Chronicle proclaim: "Trump Can't Swim", followed by numerous pages of what every Democratic politician has to say about that. ___________________________________________________
