Quoting Pelosi yesterday apparently annoyed her two fans. According to them, quoting her is fashist and racist and Trumpist. So we lost 2 subscribers. Booo Hooo! Forward the Humor Letter and hopefully the numbers start climbing again! There is nobody so irritating as somebody with less intelligence and more sense than we have. --- Don Herold ______________________________________________________ While a friend and I were visiting Annapolis, we noticed several students on their hands and knees assessing the courtyard with pencils and clipboards in hand. "What are they doing?" I asked our tour guide. "Each year," he replied with a grin, "The upperclassmen ask the freshmen how many bricks it took to finish paving this courtyard." "So what's the answer?" my friend asked him when we were out of earshot of the freshmen. The guide replied, "One." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ My brother and his wife shared their apartment with a parakeet named "Nicky." The exterminator was scheduled to come, so my sister-in-law put Nicky in the bedroom and hung a sign on the door: "Please skip this room. Do not open door. Pet flies." The exterminator came. On his receipt he wrote this comment: "Finished all of the apartment except room with pet flies." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Coming through the door after school one day, Little Johnny hollers out: "Okay everyone in the house, please stand advised that I, Little Johnny Elvis Smith, have on this date made a complete fool of myself in sex-education class by repeating stories concerning storks as told to me by certain parties residing in this house!" ______________________________________________________ Cat taking a selfie to prove who-dun-it. _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ Reported by Moe An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Rosanne Nelson, Connecticut Mother of N.J. girl who died in pancake-eating contest sues college The mother of a Connecticut college student who choked to death on pancakes during an eating contest on campus last year has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the university. Rosanne Nelson sued Sacred Heart University on Monday in Bridgeport state court over the death of her daughter, 20-year- old Caitlin Nelson, of Clark. The lawsuit seeks an undisclosed amount of money and accuses the school of approving the contest despite the dangers and failing to provide adequate medical personnel. Officials at the Catholic university in Fairfield declined to comment. Caitlin Nelson was a junior social work major whose father, police officer James Nelson, was killed in the Sept. 11 attacks in Manhattan. She died at a New York City hospital three days after participating in the eating contest. Police said that Nelson suffered from multiple food allergies, but it is yet unclear what caused her death, the report said. From: Liz Re: "Outdated" email account Dear Webby. I got an email, supposedly from "admin@mailbox.com" that claimed " We noticed that your email account has been outdated . Your email account ...." MailWasher showed the underlying real email address, which was totally different. I was momentarily tempted to tell them where to stuff it, and how, but decided that would just confirm to them, that they got through to me. Instead I am telling you, so that you can alert all subscribers. Liz Dear Liz Yes, that is indeed the best way to handle stuff like that. Instead of making yourself a target, make them the target. It is easy enough to make a filter looking for "outdated". Have FUN! DearWebby

A game warden was driving down the road when he came upon a young boy carrying a wild turkey under his arm. He stopped and asked the boy, "Where did you get that turkey?" The boy replied, "What turkey?" The game warden said, "That turkey you're carrying under your arm." The boy look down and said, "Well, lookee here, a turkey done roosted under my arm!" The game warden said, "Now look, you know turkey season is closed, so whatever you do to that turkey, I'm going to do to you. If you break his leg, I'm gonna break your leg. If you break his wing, I'll break your arm. Whatever you do to him, I'll do to you. So, what are you gonna do with him? The little boy said, "I guess I'll kiss his ass and let him go."

>From Eva After booking my 80-year-old mother on a flight from Florida to Nevada, I called the airline to go over her needs. The representative listened patiently as I requested a wheelchair and an attendant for my mother because of her arthritis and impaired vision. My apprehension lightened a bit when the woman assured me that everything would be taken care of. I thanked her profusely. "Oh, you're welcome," she replied. I was about to hang up when she cheerfully asked, "And will your mother need a rental car?" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Use the Crockpot for Stuffing Prepare your favorite stuffing and bake it in your crockpot while the turkey occupies the oven. You can prep this the day before and refrigerate. It is so much easier, tastier and safer than stuffing it into the turkey.

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Millie for this story: As a new grandmother, I am very protective of my daughter Meredith's baby girl. One cool afternoon I dropped by to see my grandchild. Meredith and a friend had taken little Allison for a walk in her stroller and were just coming up the street. As soon as they reached me, I bent down to admire Allison and, in my fussiest voice, remarked, "Your little head is cold. You should have a hat on." My daughter looked knowingly at her friend and said, "You owe me ten bucks." ___________________________________________________
