_____________________________________________________ Six retired Floridians were playing poker in the Condo clubhouse, when Meyerwitz loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five finish playing the hand standing up. Then Finkelstein looks around and asks, "Now, who is going to tell his wife?" They draw straws and Goldberg picks the short one. They tell him to be discreet, be gentle, don't make a bad situation any worse. Goldberg says, "Gentlemen! Discreet? I'm the most discreet mensch you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name, leave it to me." Then Goldberg goes over to the Meyerwitz apartment and knocks on the door. The wife answers and asks what he wants. Goldberg declares, "Your husband just lost five hundred dollars in a poker game and is afraid to come home." Mrs. Meyerwitz yells, "TELL HIM HE SHOULD DROP DEAD!" And Goldberg says, "Okay, I'll go tell him." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Tiffany Evans,34, Dover, Delaware Entitlement class royal arrested for assault with hot coffee and pepper spray The use of hot coffee as a weapon appears to be on the rise – and while official statistics are not known, it seems we are seeing more stories like the one in Dover, Delaware. 34-year-old Tiffany Evans is under arrest after she became enraged at a convenience store employee who was making her a sandwich and attacked. Thankfully, she didn’t have a gun, but she did have hot coffee and pepper spray. A woman is facing multiple charges after police say she threw hot coffee on a Delaware store employee and used pepper spray over a food order. The Dover Police Department says on Wednesday, 34-year-old Tiffany Evans, of Dover, was arrested in connection to an assault the happened at WAWA, in the 1400 block of Forrest Avenue. Police say just after 8:45 PM, Evans placed an order for a sandwich and while the male employee was preparing the sandwich, Evans started to yell at him because she believed he was making a mistake. Officers say a female employee then told the 34-year-old to stop talking like that and that another sandwich would be made. According to the report, Evans began to argue with the female employee and she then threw a cup of hot coffee in the employee’s face. Authorities say the incident caused burns to the woman’s face. The coffee also reportedly hit the male employee, causing damage to his personal cell phone that was in his pocket and $200 worth of food products in the sandwich prep area. Dover PD says the victim then walked around the counter and continued to argue with Evans, who then pepper sprayed the employee in the face. It didn’t take long for police to find Evans, but it did take time to clean up her mess. Evans then fled the scene in a white Honda Accord. Officers say the victim was taken by ambulance for minor injuries as a result of the hot coffee being thrown at her. The store was apparently forced to close for over an hour to allow the pepper spray to dissipate and cleanup the food prep area that was damaged by the thrown coffee. Law enforcement says Evans was identified by her tag number on her vehicle and later turned herself in to the Dover Police Department without incident. Evans was charged with assault 3rd degree, assault 2nd degree, offensive touching, criminal mischief (2x), terroristic threatening, and disorderly conduct. She was later released on a $7,800 unsecured bond. Tech Support Pits From: Wes Re: Tripod Sources Dear Webby, Can you give us a few websites or good tripods on eBay??? wes Dear Wes With tripods you have to check them out personally. The staff at camera stores rarely have a clue about tripods, and it's even worse on the net. First make sure that the rotator is not a threaded pipe or bolt. If it is, don't waste time on it. It's sloppy junk. It's OK if a bolt holds down the rotator or turntable, but if it rides up on the threads when you turn it, forget it. If it passed that all important Pass/Fail test, then put a camera with a long, heavy lens on it, focus on something very far away, and lock it in position while watching the viewfinder or LCD. Does the locking action move the focus three trees over, or does it stay put? All the rest is of minor importance. Have FUN DearWebby Our son, who's in the Army stationed in Georgia, invited my husband and me for a visit. After driving endlessly through unfamiliar streets in search of an entrance to Fort Stewart, my husband suddenly said, "We're getting closer." "How do you know?" I asked. He pointed to a sign that read, "Sonny's Bar & Grill -- Tank Parking Available."

Thanks to Lori for this story: No matter how hard my mom tries, every plant or flower she has attempted to grow seems to wither and die an untimely death under her care. But she never gives up hope. While my sister was visiting home recently, she nudged me and pointed to a line of new plants placed by the kitchen window. "Look," she whispered, "death row."

Jennifer had applied for a job and when she returned home, her mother asked how the interview went. "Pretty good, I think," replied Jennifer, "but if I go to work there I won't get a vacation until I'm married." Her mother, of course, had never heard of such a thing. "Is that what they told you?" "No",replied Jennifer, "but right on the application it said 'vacation time may notbe taken until you've had your First Anniversary.'" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Cooking Ahead A lot of time cooking is spent waiting around for one thing or another to get done.

Yeah, I read about your cooking '-) ____________________________________________________ A motorcycle cop was rushed to the hospital with an inflamed appendix... The doctors operated and advised him that all was well. However, the patrolman kept feeling something pulling at the hairs on his chest. Worried that it might be a second surgery the doctors hadn't told him about, he finally got enough energy to pull his hospital gown down enough so he could look at what was making him so uncomfortable. Taped firmly across his hairy chest were three wide strips of adhesive tape, the ultra sticky kind... Written in large black letters was the sentence, "Get well soon! Luv, from the nurse you gave a ticket to last week!"
Funny birds.
