After she had a minor accident, her sister accompanied her to the emergency room. The triage nurse asked for her height and weight, and she blurted out, "Five-foot-eight, 125 pounds." While the nurse pondered over this information, her sister leaned over to her. "Trisha," she gently chided, "This is not the Internet." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ No dust here! _____________________________________________________

Finally reunited with his mother, he was chided by her, "You shouldn't call me 'Marian.' I'm your mother, you know." "I know," said the child, "but the store is full of mothers." _______________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gloria Burton, Cape Coral, Florida Cape Coral woman arrested for trying to set gas station on fire The state fire marshal arrested a Cape Coral woman this week for trying to burn down a Circle K gas station. Authorities said Gloria Burton's unknown male accomplice is still on the loose. Investigators said surveillance video from the store clearly shows Burton and an unknown man working together to pour gasoline all over one of the pumps, then light it on fire and drive away. A few hours after Burton left the gas station, the state fire marshal arrested her at Duffy’s bar, where she was working as a bartender. Witnesses to the fire said she was wearing her uniform when she carried out the crime. Surveillance tapes show Burton, wearing her Duffy's uniform, purchasing $12 of gas at 2 a.m. Thursday, before walking outside, pouring the gas onto the ground near the pump and setting it ablaze. Witnesses said Burton “seemed hyper” while purchasing gas. Investigators found Burton when a Duffy’s general manager identified her in pictures from the surveillance tapes. Detectives arrested Burton when she arrived for a shift at Duffy’s. Burton is charged with felony arson and the state fire marshal is still looking for the man that was with her. Duffy’s Bar and Grille was unreachable for comment about the status of Burton’s current employment status with them.

One evening a man was very impressed with the meat entree his wife had served. "What did you marinate this in?" he asked. His wife immediately went into a long explanation about how much she loves him and how life wouldn't be the same without him, etc. Eventually, his puzzled expression made her interrupt her answer with a question of her own, " What did you ask me?" She chuckled at his answer and explained, "I thought you asked me if I would marry you again!" As she left the room, he called out, "Well, would you marry me again?" Without hesitation, she said, "Vinegar and barbecue sauce."

One day a housework-challenged husband decided to wash his sweatshirt. Seconds after he stepped into the laundry room, he shouted to his wife: "What setting do I use on the washing machine?" "It depends," she replied. "What does it say on your shirt?" He yelled back, "University of Oklahoma."

For months he had been her devoted admirer. Now, at long last, he had collected up sufficient courage to ask her the most momentous of all questions: "There are quite a lot of advantages to being a bachelor," he began, "but there comes a time when one longs for the companionship of another being - a being who will regard one as perfect, as an idol; whom one can treat as one's absolute own; who will be kind and faithful when times are hard; who will share one's joys and sorrows." To his delight he saw a sympathetic gleam in her eyes. Then she nodded in agreement. Finally, she responded, "I think its a great idea! Sure I can help you choose which puppy to buy!" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Use a Steam Iron to Remove Stickers How many of you moms out there have spent entirely too much time trying to remove stickers that have been stuck on every surface in the entire house by your ornery toddler?
