O Lord, help me to be pure, but not yet. --- Saint Augustine (354 AD - 430 AD) The best measure of a man's honesty isn't his income tax return. It's the zero adjust on his bathroom scale. --- Arthur C. Clarke "So they've got us surrounded, good!

As the harried looking clerk lifted the final bag for her, its bottom gave way, sending the contents crashing to the floor. "They just don't make these bags like they used to," the clerk blurted to the customer. "That was supposed to happen in your driveway!" ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Some Boy Scouts from the big city were on a camping trip for the first time.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Jess Evans, 26 Oswestry, Shropshire, Britain Mum realises far too late that daughter’s advent calendar is meant for cats A mum is in the dog house with her daughter after buying her an advent calendar that was actually meant for cats. The problem is, it took Jess Evans, 26, 11 whole days to realise that instead of eating chocolate Alissa, 9, had been chomping down on catnip. The little girl endured four days of the green-tinged treats before refusing to eat anymore, but Jess assumed she was just being picky. The mum-of-three was horrified when she turned the £1.99 Garfield calendar over only to discover the ‘apple flavoured chocolates’ were in fact yoghurt and catnip delicacies – for cats. Jess, from Oswestry, Shropshire, said: ‘I was in shock and felt like the worst mother ever when I realised I’d bought her a calendar for cats. Alissa had said they looked a bit green but I thought they were probably just apple-flavoured ones and didn’t think anything of it. ‘She said they tasted a bit strange, but hadn’t said they were horrible, so I just forgot about it. ‘Alissa hadn’t been eating them for a few days and when I asked why she brought the box over to me. ‘I remember thinking they did look a funny shade of green and didn’t have a chocolatey smell. ‘When I turned the calendar over and read that it was yoghurt and catnip flavour I couldn’t believe it – and that it had taken 11 days for us to notice.’ Jess had picked the advent calender up while out shopping with Alissa and her younger sisters Alexis Davies-Evans, three, and 11-month-old Aurora Davies-Evans in the Oswestry branch of B&M. Assuming the advent calendars on display were all for children she quickly scanned the shelves, picked up the Garfield one and added it to the trolley after getting Alissa’s nod of approval. Jess said: ‘When I looked at the box I couldn’t believe it. I have a degree in English literature and creative writing but still couldn’t read a calendar and it had taken me 11 days to realise. ‘Once she got over the shock she found the funny side of it. Thankfully she’s absolutely fine and I’ve checked online that she will be ok. ‘I’m going to give the calendar to my friend for her cat.’ Jess has vowed to get another advent calendar for Alissa and will bring 27-year-old lawn specialist fiancé Sean Davies along to ensure she snaps up a chocolate one. Jess said: ‘I’ll definitely be getting Sean to come with me to get one, it definitely has to be a really good one, otherwise knowing my luck I’ll end up buying one for dogs this time.’
In response to complaints by Rev. Sharpton and Jesse Jackson that there are not enough illegal immigrants appearing on TV, the Network has decided that in the future " America's Most Wanted".... will be shown 'TWICE' weekly. From: BroJoe Re: IE enforced my Microsoft Dear Webby, Your thoughts on this, please. BroJoe (.... a whole bunch of incorrect drivel from Microsoft sheep Erin at worldstart...) Dear BroJoe That is pure BS. We, amongst many others like the US Department of Defense banned IE from all of our computers. The writer of that lame drivel seems to be a particularly dumb sheep. To block IE you do NOT disable automatic updates and patches. You get the IE Blocker from my toolbox at, or search for it at Microsoft, but you don't turn off automatic updates to Windows! You can use about 50 other browsers. There is absolutely no need for IE. Even Microsoft has given up on it and came out with BING. Have FUN! DearWebby

Jones came into the office an hour late for the third time in one week and found the boss waiting for him. "What's the story this time, Jones?" he asked sarcastically. "Let's hear a good excuse for a change." Jones sighed, "Everything went wrong this morning, Boss. The wife decided to drive me to the station. She got ready in ten minutes, but then the drawbridge got stuck. Rather than let you down, I swam across the river -- look, my suit's still damp -- ran out to the airport, got a ride on Mr. Thompson's helicopter, landed on top of Radio City Music Hall, and was carried here piggyback by one of the Rockettes." "You'll have to do better than that, Jones," said the boss, obviously disappointed. "No woman can get ready in ten minutes."

>From Hilda Last October, after much deliberation, I bought a magnolia tree from our local nursery. After only a few weeks I noticed that the leaves had started to shrivel and the tree appeared to be on its last legs in spite of my tender care. So I took some leaf samples and marched back to the nursery to demand an explanation or get my money back. "I know exactly what's wrong with your magnolia," said the manager. "Good!" I exclaimed. "What's it suffering from?" You can imagine how stupid I felt when he said, "Autumn." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Serving Food at Parties Put food out in smaller batches and replace it as it runs out.

___________________________________________________ While hiking in the country, my friend Eve and I spotted a huge bed of mushrooms that we knew to be edible. We gathered a large basketful and sauteed them that night. My husband Phil refused to eat them, thinking they might be poisonous. Two weeks later, Eve and I gathered some more mushrooms. This time, Phil joined us. "How is it that you're eating these mushrooms tonight," I asked, "when you wouldn't touch the ones we brought home two weeks ago? What changed your mind?" "I thought about it," Phil explained seriously, "and I figured it would be better to be found dead with you two than to try to explain two dead women in my home." ___________________________________________________ A traveling salesman stops at a farm house and is talking with the farmer when he looks over and sees a rooster wearing pants, a shirt and suspenders. He says, "What the heck is that all about?" The farmer says, "We had a fire in the chicken coop and all his feathers got singed, so my wife made him clothes to keep him warm. You think he looks funny now, you should see him try to hold a hen down with one foot and get his pants off with the other!" ___________________________________________________

A burglar needing money to pay his income taxes decided to burgle the safe in a store. On the safe door he was very pleased to find a note reading, "Please don't use dynamite. The safe is not locked. Just turn the knob." He did so. Instantly a heavy sandbag fell on him, the entire premises were floodlighted, and alarms started clanging. As the police carried him out on a stretcher, he was heard moaning "Can't trust nobody no more!" ___________________________________________________
