When a thing is funny, search it carefully for a hidden truth. --- George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950) Hell, there are no rules here-- we're trying to accomplish something. --- Thomas A.

To his amazement, he found a little lamb sharing the cage with a big fierce bear. Ivanovich expressed surprise to his guide. The guide smiled and said, "That is peaceful coexistence." When Ivanovich shook his head in a doubtful way, the guide explained, "Of course, we have to put in a fresh lamb every morning." ____________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ A gentleman goes to Africa and asks his tourist guide while walking in the jungle, "Are we safe here?

___________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Derrick Goodin, 21 Daytona Beach, Floriduh Florida man threw another man off bridge, arrested after spotted by passing officer A man in Florida was arrested Sunday after he threw another man off a bridge into a river just as an officer was passing by, according to police. The Daytona Beach Police Department said that Derrick Goodin, 21, was involved in an argument with a woman over money as she and a friend crossed the bridge over the Halifax River on Sunday. After throwing the woman's bike in the water, the 21-year-old then threw over her friend, an unidentified man, after he got involved in the argument. "A Daytona Beach Police officer was just heading over the bridge when he spotted Goodin tossing the victim into the water," police said. In bodycam video released by police, Goodwin can be seen standing with the man before police say he tossed him over. The officer then gets out of the car and tells the 21-year-old to surrender. Goodin is then heard saying "he jumped over the bridge, before throwing his wallet in the water before he was arrested. "It's not every day that we're driving and we see a human being throwing another human being into a body of water," Daytona Beach Police spokeswoman Lyda Longa told FOX35. McKenzie Reijonen, who heard the commotion as he was fishing on a rowboat nearby, told FOX35 he jumped into action as soon as he realized what was happening. I mean over there it's pretty shallow but he fell I think into the channel which is even worse because, you know, he could have been unconscious and been hit by a passing motorboat," he said. Reijonen said he rowed his boat over to the bridge and brought the man, who had a gash on his head but was otherwise fine, to shore. I was just worried that he could have been punched unconscious or drowning or somewhere down there in the water and I did what I hoped somebody would do for me, he said. Goodin is now at the Volusia County Jail and has been charged with aggravated battery and breach of peace, according to police.
>From Lee Re: Restore Thunderbird as default mailer Dear Webby, Recently I've had to change laptops (due to a Florence related thunderstorm). I use Firefox and Thunderbird. Formerly when I clicked on the email link on Firefox it went to a Thunderbird blank email to send. Now it goes to a Microsoft product which I don't want to use. Help. Thanks, Lee Dear Lee Yes, that would upset me too! Check Mozilla Firefox browser settings: click on 'Open Menu' select 'Options' Select 'Applications' Set the 'MAILTO' protocol to use 'Thunderbird' Double check your computer protocol 'MAILTO' setting is also 'Thunderbird'. Control Panel > Default Programs >Associate a file type or protocol with a program Protocols: MAILTO needs to be set as Thunderbird. Please check registry key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\Mail 'Start' > 'Run' > type: regedit Locate this registry entry: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Clients\Mail on right side double click on 'Default' Enter 'Mozilla Thunderbird' in 'Value Data' click on 'OK' Messing with the registry is a very last resort, if nothing else works. I doubt you have to go that far. If you have to, first back up the registry before you mess with it. Have FUN DearWebby

>From Myrna As the bus pulled away, I realized I had left my purse under the seat. Later I called the company and was relieved that the driver had found my bag. When I went to pick it up, several off-duty bus drivers surrounded me. One man handed me my pocketbook, two typewritten pages and a box containing the contents of my purse. "We're required to inventory lost wallets and purses," he explained. "I think you'll find everything there." As I started to put my belongings back into the pocketbook, the man continued, "I hope you don't mind if we watch. Even though we all tried, none of us could fit everything into your purse. And we'd like to see just how you do it."

I was attending an outdoor music concertwith a young woman I'd recently met. Standing at the back of the crowd, we wrapped our arms around each other to ward off the chilly air, swaying to the music. After a particularly romantic song, my date turned to face me. With a loving smile, she said, "I wish we were closer..." Totally thrilled, I looked into her eyes and whispered, "Do you mean our houses or our philosophies?" Puzzled, she replied, "...to the stage." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Cleaning With Baking Soda Make a paste of baking soda with water for a mild abrasive.

Charlie was a regular visitor at the race track. One afternoon he noticed an unusual sight. Right before the first race, a Catholic priest visited one of the horses in the stable area and gave it a blessing. Charlie watched the horse race very carefully, and sure enough the blessed horse came in first! Charlie followed the priest before the next race, and again the priest went to the stables and performed a similar procedure. Charlie played a hunch and put a couple of dollars on the blessed horse. Sure enough, the blessed horse came in by two lengths and Charlie won close to fifty bucks! The priest continued the same procedure through the next few races and the horse won each time. So between races Charlie left the track and went to the bank to withdraw his life's savings, $20,000. The biggest race of the day was the last one. Charlie followed the priest and watched carefully which horse he blessed. He then went to the betting window and put his whole bundle of cash on that horse, to win. Then Charlie went out to watch the horses race. Down the stretch they came and as they crossed the finish line, the horse Charlie's fortune was bet on was far behind ... dead last! Charlie was crushed. He located the priest and told him that he had been watching him bless the horses which all became winners throughout the day. Charlie then asked, "What happened to the last horse which you blessed? Because of your failure on that last horse, I have lost my entire life's savings." "That's the trouble with you Protestants," sighed the priest, "you never could tell the difference between a blessing and the Last Rites." ____________________________________________________
