University politics are vicious precisely because the stakes are so small. --- Henry Kissinger (1923 - ) This is patently absurd; but whoever wishes to become a philosopher must learn not to be frightened by absurdities. --- Bertrand Russell (1872 - 1970) "I know that you believe that you understood what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant." --- Robert McCloskey, State Department spokesman A synonym is a word you use when you can't spell the word you first thought of. --- Burt Bacharach ______________________________________________________ One of the first things you learn on your honeymoon is, when you're carrying your bride over the threshold, always go in sideways -- unless of course two broken ankles and a concussion turn you on. ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ The government will be requiring new food labels that are more specific.

Finally, two men walked up to her. "I'm out of gas," she purred. "Could you push me to the gas station?" The men readily put their muscles to the car and rolled it several blocks. After a while, one looked up, exhausted, to see that they had just passed a gas station. "We just passed a station! How come you didn't turn in?" he yelled. "Oh, I never go there," the girl shouted back. "They don't have full service." ______________________________________________________ Re Yesterday's picture: The picture for Nov 15 looks a lot like my first car, a 1928? Model A Ford Sedan. Bought it near Crown Point Oregon where I was logging, fixed it up to run and drove it around Portland when I was in high school. Lots of interesting adventures. The paint was in better condition though. Clyde _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Kate McClure, right, McClure's boyfriend Mark D'Amico in jail in New Jersey, Johnny Bobbitt Jr., left, UNder a bridge, somewhere. Homeless man and N.J. couple concocted story for GoFundMe fundraiser Couple Mark D'Amico and Kate McClure and homeless man Johnny Bobbitt Jr. are expected to face charges that include conspiracy and theft by deception. A New Jersey couple accused of scamming a homeless good Samaritan out of hundreds of thousands of dollars as part of an online fundraiser that went viral a year ago had initially conspired with him to concoct a "fictitious story," prosecutors allege. A complaint obtained by NBC Philadelphia says couple Mark D'Amico and Kate McClure made up a GoFundMe campaign in honor of Johnny Bobbitt Jr. so that all three could raise money by deceiving generous donors. They kept up the ruse by preventing donors from acquiring information that would affect their judgment about the campaign and "by failing to correct their story," the complaint added. The three are expected to face charges that include conspiracy and theft by deception, a source familiar with the case told NBC Philadelphia, adding that D'Amico and McClure surrendered to authorities on Wednesday. Ernest Badway, an attorney for D'Amico and McClure, told NBC News he had no comment early Thursday. Chris Fallon, an attorney for Bobbitt, could not immediately be reached for comment. The initially feel-good tale began last fall when Bobbitt, a homeless Marine veteran, gave McClure his last $20 after she ran out of gas on a freeway ramp in Philadelphia, she said. Moved by the gesture, McClure and D'Amico started a GoFundMe campaign for Bobbitt. "Johnny did not ask me for a dollar, and I couldn't repay him at that moment because I didn't have any cash, but I have been stopping by his spot for the past few weeks," McClure wrote in her post. Bobbitt's kindness drew donations from more than 14,000 people and earned him $402,000. The outpouring, in turn, touched the couple: "He will never have to worry about a roof over his head again!!" they later posted on GoFundMe while thanking "everyone who had a part of this amazing ride." Bobbit claimed that of the $402,000 he just got $25,000 and that D'Amico and McClure spent the rest on a brand new BMW, vacations and jewelry. Police have since then confiscated some of the loot. Bill Re: Eudora not showing attachments on W10 Dear Webby I have recently upgraded to Windows 10 because my W7 died. The OS is installed on a new SSD. Since that time, Eudora 7 attachments will not work, e.g. pdf or wmv files. If I send these emails to Gmail, the attachments will open normally. It appears that W10 can't find the attachments. I have searched for an answer, but to date have been unsuccessful. I know that you can help resolve this problem. Thanks. Bill Dear Bill You can tell Eudora where to stash attachments. Instead of some hard to find directory way down somewhere, tell it to put them into C:\att and of course make that directory. You may still have to go in there occasionally and snug up file names, that have empty spaces in them. You may also have to set default programs to open wmf and pdf. Have FUN! DearWebby

There were three guys talking in the pub. Two of them were talking about the amount of control they have over their wives, while the third remained quiet. After a while one of the first two turned to the third and said, "Well, what about you, what sort of control do you have over your wife?" The third fellow said, "I'll tell you -- just the other night my wife came to me on her hands and knees." The first two guys were amazed. "Wow! What happened then?" they asked. The third man took a healthy swallow of his beer, sighed and uttered, "She said, 'Get out from under the bed and fight like a man.'"

While making rounds, a doctor points out an X-ray to a group of medical students. "As you can see," she says, "the patient limps because his left fibula and tibia are radically arched. Michael, what would you do in a case like this?" "Well," ponders the student, "I suppose I'd limp too." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Removing a Nail That Has Lost Its Head When the nail head breaks off a nail, it can be tough to get the claw of the hammer to grip the nail. To remove the nail, slip the claw of the hammer over the remainder of the nail and then pull the nail out by moving the hammer sideways instead of straight out.

___________________________________________________ During a Biology class, the teacher asked the class, "Why is it that during childhood girls tend to grow taller than guys?" A student replied, "That's because guys have balls and that weighs them down." The teacher, quite annoyed, responded, "Then why is it that at maturity guys tend to grow taller than girls?" The student countered by saying, "That's because girls get breasts and they are heavier than the guy's balls." ___________________________________________________

A small, uncertain, and nervous witness was being cross-examined. The lawyer thundered, "Have you ever been married ?" "Yes, sir, once" said the witness in a low voice. "Whom did you marry?" "Well, a woman." The lawyer said angrily, "Of course you married a woman ! Did you ever hear of anyone marrying a man ?" And the witness said meekly, "MY mother did."
