Autoresponder nuisance 


Good Morning, !
Today is Tuesday,  July 3

The people in the US, who are still loyal subjects to the
Imperial British measurement system, and have not yet
gotten permission from the Queen to upgrade to metric,
will have to wait another day for their Independence

So it's my day to razz you about your quaint
BTU (British Thermal Unit), Fahrenheit, Feet, Cubits, 
Yards, Furlongs, heaped and struck bushels, and all the
neat stuff we read about in the old fairy tales and history

Have FUN!

WOKV told you back in April that 48-year-old Trisha Denlinger had been arrested. She has now pleaded “nolo contendere” in Bradford County to unlawful possession of a handcuff key and conveying tools to aid escape and been sentenced to 30 months, with credit for 60 days time served. Denlinger arranged to visit her husband at Florida State Prison, where he was an inmate, according to her arrest affidavit. Records say she purchased a sealed chicken sandwich, unsealed it, heated it in a microwave, and then gave it to a Correctional Officer to search. Investigators say the Officer found a plastic handcuff key in that sandwich. The arrest affidavit says Denlinger went through three prison fences, four gates, and a metal detector. Her person items had gone through an X-ray scanner, per the Florida Department of Corrections.
Tech Support Pits From Susan RE: Auto responders Dear Webby Hi there, your daily letter is not only funny but invariably useful tech-wise! As always, many thanks (and a question, of course)! Is there an auto-responder software that you recommend? I only want it for the two months this summer when we will be out of the country and away from e-mail (yay). Thanks, Susan Dear Susan Autoresponders are a nuisance and will get you blocked. Since your friends seem to be more or less literate, send them an email telling them that you will be off-line till fall. Send the email to yourself, and put the entire address book into the BCC. Half of them will forget in two minutes and mail you anyway, but will rememeber when there is no speedy reply. Have FUN DearWebby

Out canvassing for a charity, my friend Irene and I knocked at a door. It was opened by a huge bear of a man, who was wearing a large black bra, over his shirt. Irene, being a devout Catholic, crossed herself, backed up ready to make a fast retreat. I asked politely for a donation, trying to keep my eyes from wandering to his protruding undergarment. He grinned evilly at me, "Wanna feel em?" Horrified, I turned to leave, when one side of his bra came alive with motion. Irene was now crossing herself with a flurry, muttering, "Jaysus, Mary and Murphy." She was begging the saints to protect her, when a tiny tail flipped out of his bra. "Oh my sweet Lord," she squealed, "He's got rats in his boobs," bolted for the car, offering up 'Hail Mary's.' as she tore off the porch. An old lady came out of the house, glared at the man, who just grinned back. He put his hands up to cradle both cups, which were now writhing with movement. She turned to me asking, "Did he ask you to play with them?" "Yes", I gulped. "Well," she said, patting my hand, " He's not too bright, but it's not what you think." She ordered him to pull his bra out so I could peek inside. Hesitantly I watched, while he pulled the garment down. When I got a good look I burst out laughing. Tiny muzzles with whiskers, long sinuous bodies, small heads with bright beady eyes, stared back at me. "Their mama died," he explained, " This bra is the perfect place to keep them warm." Both cups were filled to the brim with tiny baby ferrets.

Ed was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really angry. She told him "Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 250 in less then 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE!" The next morning Ed got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up she looked out the window and sure enough there was a gift-wrapped box in the middle of the driveway. Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house. She opened it and found a brand new heavy duty bathroom scale. Ed has been missing since Friday. ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Birdbath Use two large stackable plastic bowls.

"This is Mr. Ingram's office," the caller said. "We'd like to know if he's bullish or bearish right now." "He's talking to his wife," the secretary replied. "Right now I'd say he's sheepish." ___________________________________________________

A newspaper reporter for the Los Angeles Times had received instructions from his senior editor to get photographs of a brush fire in the foothills of northern California. The instructions included hurrying to the Santa Monica Airport to board a small plane, taking some photos of the fire, and hurrying back by noon with the story. The reporter dressed quickly, rushed to the airport, saw the small plane waiting on the runway, drove his car to the end of the runway, parked, and climbed on board. Off they flew into the clear blue skies. At about 5,000 feet, the reporter took out his camera and said to the man flying the plane, "Bank right and I'll take some pictures of this fire." Then he heard the most frightening questions of his life, "Bank right? How do I do that? You ARE the instructor, aren't you?" ____________________________________________________
