The exec was explaining the day's activities by the public-address system to visitors who were in a safe viewing area. Suddenly, on the firing line, a bored soldier lit up a cigarette. Before I could react, the exec grabbed the microphone and screamed, "PUT OUT THAT F@#$%&G CIGARETTE!"

Comics http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/comics/ _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Morgan Summerlin, 25, Fulton County, Georgia Georgia mom admits she let men rape daughters, ages 5 and 6, in exchange for money him down. A 25-year-old Georgia mother admitted she allowed two men to rape her daughters in exchange for money. According to the Office of the Fulton County District Attorney, the 5-year-old and 6-year-old girls told their guardians that their mother, Morgan Summerlin, took them to the menís homes where they were sexually assaulted. The men would give the girls money; Summerlin would then take the cash for herself. A jury found one of the men, Richard Office, guilty last week on charges of rape, child molestation, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposes and sexual battery. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole plus an additional 146 years to run concurrently. Summerlin also allowed another man, Alfredo Trejo, to abuse her children. He was convicted of rape, sexual battery, child molestation and aggravated child molestation in February. A judge sentenced him to 25 years in prison and lifetime probation. Like Office, Trejo would abuse the girls and give them money, which Summerlin would then take, prosecutors said. On April 26, Summerlin pleaded guilty to cruelty to children, trafficking a person for sexual servitude and enticing a child for indecent purposes. Sentencing is set for June 4. The childrenís grandmother, Teresa Davidson, pleaded guilty to cruelty to children for failing to protect the girls after they told her about the abuse. She was sentenced to five years. The report did not state why the mother did not have guardianship, or who the actual guardian was.
Tech Support Pits From: Carrie Re: Internet business Dear Webby There is so much written about making big money on the Internet. Since most of that is in spam, how much of that can be believed ? I want just a small business without the stress that comes with a big company. Is there something that would fit for me? Thanks Carrie Dear Carrie If you want "just a small business", then crochet doilies and sell them to relatives. You will make more money than any of the gullible suckers who believe what they read in spam. If you want an Internet business that pays you more per month than working as a part time greeter at Walmart, then you have to follow some basic rules: 1) Clean up your credit rating enough so that you can get a credit card merchant account or a PayPal merchant account. Register as a company and get aa company bank account. Make the company pay you a wage and all the legal requirements like pension plan, medical, etc. You will severely kick yourself if you neglect that! Btw., you don't really need to really pay yourself instantly. It is quite customary that you simply have the compoany owe you the wages, and you keep them in there as an investment until the company can afford to pay you. Just keep track of all that same as any company expense, that you "lend" to the company. 2) Set up a web site. However, be careful and limit your time! It's really easy to do, but if the creativity bug bites you, it's too much fun and becomes addictive, and it's easy to forget that the reason for it is your business. It's quite OK to play, but budget your time! If you don't know how to write pages, take the free HTML course that you see in the right side margin. 3) Start writing a regular newsletter. Absolutely nothing will generate as many contacts and friends. 4) As you are getting comfortable with pages and newsletters, it's time to find a niche that suites you. Don't pick anything that requires x amount of hours to make, but something that you can duplicate easily or buy easily. Try to avoid nutrition supplements. That niche is way too crowded and you won't make any money there. 5) Avoid MLM (pyramid schemes) where you are just making money for your upline. 6) Get yourself a coach. Life is too short to make all the mistakes yourself. Avoid those who claim that they are a coach or successful but are actually so poor that they resort to spamming. They are like the fortune tellers on the street, who can't even predict when they are going to be arrested. Instead find somebody who is running a successful business and has done so for a long time. 7) Stock up on a small amount of whatever you are planning to sell and sell it to friends. ABSOLUTELY refuse to accept cash. I don't have the space here to explain it, but cash will ruin your business for sure. Tell them that you need to test your order form or your merchant account, or whatever, but don't accept cash! Make everybody go through your order form or shopping cart, and keep that money totally separate. You can write off a lot of things, and pay yourself generously, but only if you keep a very strict separation. Anything else will just get you yelled at by your accountant and by the tax authorities, cost you more and waste a lot of time. I can't tell you what would work in your area. You need a local start, unless you have a huge amolunt of starting capital. However, you CAN use international suppliers, as long as you keep your source secret. Have a look at Gamiss, a Chinese clothing supplier. Their quality is excellent and they ship incredibly fast. If you put together a catalog, that features their items, you could make pretty good money! I ordered an $8 parka with faake fur trim on the hood from them before Christmas. The same would have cost me close to $100 locally. Right now they got, for example Turndown Collar Single Breasted Fleece PU Leather Jacket - Espresso - 2xl $20.55 https://www.gamiss.com/jackets-11573/product918206/?utm_source=Criteo&utm_medium=CPCCA&utm_campaign=Displayads&lkid=1122 I didn't order it, but it is just an example. Don't get limited to an example! Consider your interests and pick something, that does not turn you off, and that your friends would be interested in. Have FUN DearWebby
The elementary school teacher was trying impress upon the seventh-grade history class how Native Americans must have felt when they first encountered the Spanish explorers. "How would you feel," said she, "if someone showed up on your doorstep who looked very different, spoke a strange language and wore unusual clothes? Wouldn't you be a bit scared?" "Nah," one boy answered, "I'd just figure it was my sister's newest boyfriend."

Anni, his wife pushed the man off her and demanded to know where Sam had been until two o'clock in the morning.

Thanks to Chris for this story: An Irish daughter had not been home for over 5 years. Upon her return, her father cussed her. "Where have ye been all this time?

Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ The young son of a Baptist minister was in church one morning when he saw for the first time baptism by immersion. He was greatly interested in it, and the next morning proceeded to baptize his three cats in the bathtub. The youngest kitten bore it very well, and so did the younger cat, but the old family tom cat rebelled. The old feline struggled with the boy, clawed his skin, and finally got away. With considerable effort the boy caught the old tom again and proceeded with the "ceremony." But the cat acted worse than ever, clawing and spitting, and scratching the boy's face. Finally, after barely getting the cat splattered with water, he dropped him on the floor in disgust and said: "Fine, be a Methodist if you want to!"

____________________________________________________ A housewife with three young children was getting dinner ready when the phone rang. The six-year-old picked it up and said, "Hi, Daddy!" and she began telling him about her day. She then passed the phone to her brother and sister as was the custom whenever Daddy called from work. When it was finally the wife's turn to talk she took the receiver and said, "Hi, hon." "Thank goodness, lady," the voice on the other end replied. "I just called to tell you that the wallpaper you ordered is here!" ______________________________________________________

______________________________________________________ The young mother wanted so much to be a part of her teenage children's group. She worked hard at learning all the styles the young mothers wore and all foods the children like to eat. She always tried to look young and spiffy and to have an abundant supply of snacks when the gang dropped by. She even learned how to talk "young" learning all the buzz words and hip sayings. One day all this came to a screeching halt when, after serving the right snacks, she heard herself say to a room full of hormone dripping teenagers, "If anyone want secs, just let me know. I'll be in the kitchen getting it ready." ______________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ An old country farmer with serious financial problems bought a mule from another old farmer for $100, who agreed to deliver the mule the next day. However, the next day he drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news: The mule died." "Well, then, just give me my money back." Can't do that. I went and spent it already." "OK, then. Just unload the mule." "What ya gonna do with a dead mule?" "I'm going to raffle him off." "You can't raffle off a dead mule!" "Sure I can. I just won't tell anybody he's dead." A month later the two met up and the farmer who sold the mule asked, "Whatever happened with that dead mule?" "I raffled him off just like I said I would. I sold 500 tickets at $2 a piece and made a net profit of $898." "Didn't anyone complain?" "Just the guy who won. I'm not a crook like you, I gave him his two dollars back."
