"Well I want to go to the 'fraternity ward,' anyway." "I'm sure you mean the maternity ward."

_____________________________________________________ At the local gas utility written orders are issued to change meters when they are old or malfunctioning. On the order sheet is a "remarks" section, where the service representative notes any problems that prevented the job from being completed. The most succinct explanation to ever come back was: "DOG DOES NOT WANT METER TO BE CHANGED." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Reece Hanson, 24, West Allis, Wisconsin Dopey Heroin user charged with 4th DUI and released on cheap bail What looked and sounded like a routine traffic stop on March 30 changed gears when the suspect in a black Porsche took off, reaching speeds of up to 100 miles-per-hour. Reece Hanson, who would later be arrested, was behind the wheel, prosecutors say. Stop sticks slowed the vehicle down to around 40 miles-per-hour, and then 20 mph. The driver and passenger jumped out, and police chased them. Police detained the female passenger, who was cited. Police said the driver stumbled down a hill before he was tackled and pepper spray was used. Judging by the mug shot, they wiped the gound with his face. The passenger, who has not been charged, admitted to police that she and Hanson were "avid heroin users," and they were "under the influence of heroin." Hanson, 24, is facing four charges: Vehicle operator flee/elude officer Second degree recklessly endangering safety OWI, fourth offense Operating while revoked (revocation due to alcohol/controlled substance/refusal) He was charged with eluding an officer just one day before this incident in West Allis. Online court records show he has two other open cases in addition to the most recent one. The fleeing/eluding charge was filed in March, and last November, he was charged with obstructing an officer- a misdemeanor. He made his initial appearance in court in the most recent case on April 5. Cash bond was set at a record low of $15,000, probably hoping he will make it a 5th DUI by his court date on June 4 for a status conference.
Tech Support Pits From: Bonnie Re: Crap Cleaner Dear Webby I recently installed Crap Cleaner and went in to open it. When I clicked on "Run Cleaner" I got the message "This process will permanently delete files from your system". Can you tell me what files will be deleted? I don't want to delete something important. Thank you again in advance for your help. Bonnie Dear Bonnie Hit Analyze first. Then it will show you the stuff that it considers to be crap. When you hit Run, it will delete all the crap that it lists and shows you in the right hand pane, after you have let it analyze the system. Don't worry, it's not going to delete Windows or the keyboard or anything worth keeping. Have FUN DearWebby
Subject: How The Internet Began..... (This is not Al Gore's version) In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she had been called Amazon Dot Com. She said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why doth thou travel far from town to town with thy goods when thou can trade without ever leaving thy tent?" And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, Dear?" And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying what you have for sale and they will reply telling you which hath the best price. And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)." Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. The drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever moving from his tent. But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did secret himself inside Abraham's drum and was accused of insider trading. And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Siderites, or NERDS for short. And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to the drum maker, one Brother William of Gates, who bought up every drum company in the land. And indeed did insist on making drums that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks. Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And as Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or as it came to be known "eBay" he said, "We need a name that reflects what we are," and Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators." "YAHOO", said Abraham. And that is how it all began.

Early in their marriage, my Dad did something really stupid. My Mom chewed him out for it. He apologized, they made up. However, from time to time, my Mom mentioned what he had done. "Honey," my Dad finally said one day, "why do you keep bringing that up? I thought your policy was 'forgive and forget.'" "It is," she said. "I just don't want you to forget that I've forgiven and forgotten."

Bob was faced with a difficult decision recently and asked some of his friends what he should do. This is what he got: Beware of Greeks bearing gifts. Don't look a gift horse in the mouth. A silent man is a wise one. A man without words is a man without thoughts. Look before you leap. He who hesitates is lost. Many hands make light work. Too many cooks spoil the broth. Actions speak louder than words. The pen is mightier than the sword. Clothes make the man. Don't judge a book by its cover. It's the squeaky wheel that gets the grease. The nail that sticks out gets hammered. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Better safe than sorry. If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'. A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor. Words that soak into your ears are whispered...not yelled. Forgive your enemies. It messes up their heads. Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you. It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge. You cannot unsay a cruel word. Every path has a few puddles. When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty. The best sermons are lived, not preached. Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway. Don't judge folks by their relatives. Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer. Don't interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none. Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got. Always drink upstream from the herd. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in. If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around. The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'. Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God. Finally he asked me: "Now what do I do?" ==Continued tomorrow== Just kidding I told him that if it didn't kill him, it would make him stronger. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Preheat Your Oven Always preheat your oven before baking. Oven temperature is very important for successful baking. Purchase an oven thermometer to verify the temperature in your oven is accurate. Tip: If pans are too close together, you won't get proper heat circulation which could cause uneven baking. Tip provided by Thriftyfun.com ____________________________________________________ On the Upper West Side of NYC lived an assimilated Jewish man who was now a very militant atheist. But he sent his son Morris to Trinity School because, despite its denominational roots, it's a great school and completely secular. After a month, the boy came home and said casually, "By the way Dad, I learned what Trinity means! It means 'The Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.'" The father could barely control his rage. He seized his son by the shoulders and screamed, "Morris, I'm going to tell you something now and I want you never to forget it. Forget the Trinity business. There is only one God... and we don't believe in him!"

He says, "Just for fun, Ma, I'm going to bring over 3 women and you try and guess which one I'm going to marry." The mother agrees. The next day, he brings three beautiful women into the house and sits them down on the couch and they chat for a while. He then says, "Okay, Ma, guess which one I'm going to marry." She immediately replies, "The one in the middle." "That's amazing, Ma. You're right. How did you know?" "I don't like her." ___________________________________________________
