______________________________________________________ To die for an idea; it is unquestionably noble. But how much nobler it would be if men died for ideas that were true! -- H. L. Mencken (1880 - 1956) ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ THE TODDLER DIET Americans are always on the lookout for a new diet. The trouble with most diets is that you don't get enough to eat (the starvation diet), or you don't get enough variation (the liquid diet) or you go broke (the all-meat diet). Consequently, people tend to cheat on their diets, or quit after 3 days, or go right back to stuffing their faces after it is all over. Is there nothing you can do but give up and tell your friends you have a gland problem? Well, now there's the new Toddler Miracle Diet! Over the years you may have noticed, as I have, that most two-year-olds are trim. It came to me one day over a glass of water and a carrot that perhaps their diet is the reason. After consultation with pediatricians, X-ray technicians, and distraught Moms, I was able to formulate this new diet. It is inexpensive, offering great variety and sufficient quantity. Before embarking on this diet, however, be sure to check with your doctor -- otherwise, you might have to see him afterward. Good luck! DAY ONE Breakfast: One scrambled egg, one piece of toast with grape jelly. Eat 2 bites of egg, using your fingers; dump the rest on the floor. Take 1 bite of toast, then smear the jelly over your face and clothes. Lunch: Four crayons (any color), a handful of potato chips, and a glass of milk (3 sips only, then spill the rest). Dinner: A dry stick, two pennies and a nickel, 4 sips of flat Pepsi. Bedtime snack: Toast a piece of bread and toss it on the kitchen floor. DAY TWO Breakfast: Pick up stale toast from kitchen floor and eat it. Drink half bottle of vanilla extract or one vial of vegetable dye. Lunch: Half a tube of "Pulsating Pink" lipstick and a handful of Purina Dog Chow (any flavor). One ice cube, if desired. Afternoon Snack: Lick an all-day sucker until sticky, take outside, drop in dirt. Retrieve and continue slurping until it is clean again. Then bring inside and drop on the rug. Dinner: A rock or an uncooked bean, which should be thrust up your left nostril. Pour grape Kool-Aid over mashed potatoes; eat with a spoon. DAY THREE Breakfast: Two pancakes with plenty of syrup, eat one with fingers, rub in hair. Glass of milk; drink half, stuff other pancake in glass. After breakfast, pick up yesterday's sucker from rug, lick off fuzz, and put it on the cushion of your best chair. Lunch: Three matches, peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Spit several bites onto the floor. Pour glass of milk on table and slurp up. Dinner: Dish of ice cream, handful of potato chips, some red punch. FINAL DAY Breakfast: A quarter-tube of toothpaste (any flavor), bit of soap, an olive. Pour a glass of milk over bowl of Cornflakes, add a half cup of sugar. Once cereal is soggy, drink milk and feed cereal to dog. Lunch: Eat crumbs off kitchen floor and dining room carpet. Find that sucker and finish eating it. Dinner: A glass of spaghetti and chocolate milk. Leave meatball on plate. Stick of mascara for dessert. ______________________________________________________ An wealthy 65-year-old man falls in love with a young woman in her twenties and is contemplating a proposal.

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Lorna for this report: While waiting for my first appointment in the reception room of a new dentist, I noticed his certificate, which bore his full name. Suddenly, I remembered that a tall, handsome boy with the same name had been in my high school class almost 50 years ago. Upon seeing him, however, I quickly discarded any such thought. This balding, gray-haired man with the deeply lined face was too old to have been my classmate. After he had examined my teeth, I asked him if he had attended the local high school. "Yes," he replied. "When did you graduate?" I asked. He answered, "In 1953." "Why, you were in my class!" I exclaimed. He looked at me closely and then asked, "What did you teach?" _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Marcos Garcia, 42, Lawrence, Massawhosits Man held without bail in I-495 hatchet carjackings A Lawrence man who allegedly used a hatchet to carjack another car following a crash on Interstate 495 on Wednesday night is being held without bail. Marcos Garcia, 42, was arraigned on Thursday in his hospital bed at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center. He pleaded, through an interpreter, not guilty to two counts of carjacking, one count of negligent operation of a motor vehicle and one count of resisting arrest. Garcia will face a judge again next Wednesday in Ayer District Court for a dangerousness hearing, assuming he's not hospitalized. Around 7:15 p.m. Wednesday, state police were dispatched to a reported motor vehicle crash on the southbound side of Interstate 495 in Chelmsford. State police said in a press release that night that Garcia had operated one of the vehicles involved, then allegedly used a hatchet to carjack another vehicle and continued along 495 until he struck two other vehicles and crashed in Littleton. Thursday's arraignment stems from the Littleton crash. Police are still investigating the Chelmsford portion of the alleged incident. Assistant District Attorney April O'Brien said Thursday that Garcia attempted to steal the two vehicles following the crash in Littleton. The driver of a black BMW told police Garcia, at the time shirtless and covered in blood, entered his car and tried to steal it, while the driver of a Toyota Sienna told police he attempted to enter her car. "He was swaying on his feet," O'Brien said during Thursday's arraignment. "Police continued to yell at him to comply. He was punching his fists. He said no. Police had to use a Taser. It took them activating the Taser five times to get the defendant under control." No mention was made at Thursday's arraignment of the hatchet Garcia allegedly used to carjack the first vehicle. The charges were read to Garcia through an interpreter. He sat upright and alert, handcuffed to his hospital bed with a bandage on the right side of his face. Judge David Frank ordered Garcia held without bail until his dangerousness hearing. Thomas Combs, Garcia's attorney, declined to comment following Thursday's arraignment. Tom O'Donnell, of Westford, who was driving on I-495 at the time of the initial tractor-trailer crash in Chelmsford, said he "saw a van screaming down the high-speed lane." According to O'Donnell, the driver of the van was the carjacker. "I spoke to the driver of the tractor trailer," O'Donnell said. "He said the van cut in front of him." This caused the tractor trailer to swerve in an attempt to avoid contact with the reckless vehicle. "The tractor-trailer driver was a real hero in my opinion by keeping control of his truck," O'Donnell said. "I'm amazed that the only person hurt was the driver of the van." _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Don C Re: Censored Dear Webby, Frequently I find jokes or other anecdotes have been cut short by a line of equal signs which prevent me from reading the rest of the story.

A vacationer e-mailed a seaside hotel in England to ask its location. "It's only a stone's throw away from Stoney Beach," he was told. "But how will I recognize it?" asked the man. Back came the reply: "It's the one with all the broken windows."

A minister told his congregation, "Next week I plan to preach about the sin of lying. To help you all understand my sermon, I want you all to read Mark 17." The following Sunday, as he prepared to deliver his sermon, the minister asked for a show of hands. He wanted to know how many people had read Mark 17. Every hand went up. The minister smiled and said, "Mark only has 16 chapters. I will know proceed with my sermon on the sin of lying." ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Take a Break From Your Computer Avoid sitting in front of your computer for more than 30 minutes at a time. If you find you lose track of time, set a timer to go off in 30 minutes. Then get up, stretch, and walk around a bit before sitting back down. It also helps ease eye strain if you periodically look at distant objects.
