A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn't see the clouds at all - he's walking on them. --- Leonard Louis Levinson This country has come to feel the same when Congress is in session as when the baby gets hold of a hammer. --- Will Rogers (1879 - 1935) ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Sandie for this story: Since I was processing my first accident report at the transport company where I worked, I was being particularly attentive. The driver had hit a deer on the highway and the result was a severely damaged hood and fender. My serious mood was broken, however, when I reached the section of the report that asked, "Speed of other vehicle?" The driver had put, "Full gallop." ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ >From Billie I was at my local cell phone company to pay my bill and upgrade my service. The line wasn't clearly formed, and there was an older gentleman with a cane nearby. It was unclear which one of us would be called next. When the representative called for one of us to step up, the man with the cane motioned politely and said, "After you." I smiled at him and replied, "No, please, after you. I have all day." The man smiled back and said, "No, you go ahead. My doctor says I have at least six months." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A football coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play." The player agreed, so coach looked into his eyes intently and asked, "Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What is two plus two?" The player thought for a moment and then answered, "That would be 4, I think." "Did you say 4?" the coach exclaimed, excited that he had got it right. Suddenly all the other players on the team began screaming..., "Come on coach, give him another chance!" ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Dylan Printz, 18, Shippensburg, Pennsylvania Arson Charge For Man Behind Burning Dog Poop Prank A crappy Christmas Eve prank landed a Pennsylvania man in jail on arson and other criminal charges, according to police. Firefighters and cops were dispatched Monday at 3 AM following a report that a “bag of dog poop was lit on fire on a porch” in Shippensburg, a borough about 40 miles southwest of Harrisburg. A female tenant told police she was awoken when other residents spotted the fire and began “yelling to call 911 and to get out of the house.” The fire was quickly extinguished and there was no damage to the residence. Asked who might have set the bag of feces on fire, the tenant fingered Dylan Printz, 18, “due to them having a falling out that night and she told him he could not stay or be there anymore.” Police subsequently located Printz, who reportedly copped to starting the fire. Seen above, Printz said that he “grabbed a brown paper bag from a Chinese food order” and filled it with dog poop. He then “put the bag of feces on the porch and lit it on fire with a Bic lighter.” Printz, cops reported, said he set the fire to “get back at the people who lived there due to an earlier fight.” Shippensburg cops arrested Printz on two felony counts--arson and risking catastrophe. He was also hit with misdemeanor reckless endangerment charges. The teen--whose Facebook page lists his nickname as “Spyder”--is free on $20,000 bail and is scheduled for a January 7 pretrial hearing.

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me..... I know we've been friends for a long time..... but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is." Her friend glared at her. For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her. Finally she said, "How soon do you need to know?"

A father spoke to his son, "It's time we had a little talk, my son. Soon, you will have urges and feelings you've never had before. Your heart will pound & your hands will sweat. You'll be preoccupied and won't be able to think of anything else." He added, "But don't worry, it's perfectly normal... it's called golf." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Flip The Script For Valentine's Day For guys (or gals) who don't cook a lot, take it upon yourself to cook a Valentine's dinner for your significant other.

The Shirk Report
___________________________________________________ AFTER OUR FRIEND TOM had been a temporary bachelor for several weeks, we stopped by his home to visit him. My wife asked if he was eating properly. "Well, I do eat a lot of dog food," Tom told her. "Dog food!" my wife exclaimed, horrified. "I can't believe you would be eating anything like that!" "Come to the kitchen and I'll show you," Tom replied. Opening the refrigerator door, he waved his hand at a row of doggie bags from some of the best restaurants in town. --------- In the 70's my dad came over from Europe to visit me. I also took him to the local Chinese restaurant and showed him how everybody on the table ordered their favorites, but got an empty plate, with all the ordered foods placed in the center. Then everybody took some of each plate, sort of a mini buffet. The food was plentiful with lots left over. Then the waiter asked: "Yoo wann doggie bags?" I was familiar with that and of course agreed. Dad had never experienced that in Europe and he was quite impressed, and when he returned to Austria, proceded to tell everybody about "doggie bags". In the meantine now most other restaurants adopted that custom. Some, like Boston Pizza, even have very nice, reusable containers, but still call them "doggie bags". ___________________________________________________ President Calvin Coolidge once invited friends from his hometown to dine at the White House. Worried about their table manners, the guests decided to do everything that Coolidge did. This strategy succeeded, until coffee was served. The president poured his coffee into the saucer. The guests did the same. Coolidge added sugar and cream. His guests did, too. Then Coolidge bent over and put his saucer on the floor for the cat. ___________________________________________________

During a phone conversation, my nephew mentioned that he was taking a psychology course at the university. "Oh, great," I said. "Now you'll be analyzing everyone in the family." "No, no," he replied. "I don't take abnormal psychology until next semester." ___________________________________________________
