Against logic there is no armor like ignorance. --- Laurence J. Peter (1919 - 1988) Insane people are always sure that they are fine. It is only the sane people who are willing to admit that they are crazy. --- Nora Ephron ______________________________________________________ Thanks to Irene for this story: My husband and I were at a restaurant and before we were seated my husband said he needed to use the bathroom he went off and did his business, When he finally returned I notice a very LONG piece of toilet paper hanging out of the back of his pants. Before I could say anything everyone started laughing and pointing, of course he still had no clue, that is until some young guy approached him, and asked him if he was receiving a fax! ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ Constant nagging didn't seem to provide any relief from having to clean up the bathroom after each of my three teenage children. After I cleaned it one day, I resorted to posting a sign that read: "Please leave the bathroom as you found it." I noticed the bathroom was in the usual mess after my son used it, so I called, "Brian, how did you find the bathroom?" After a brief pause, he replied, "Straight down the hall, first door on the right." _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ Sick Day I'm feeling sick and getting worse. I think I'd better see the nurse. I'm sure I should go home today. It could be fatal if I stay. I'm nauseated, nearly ill. I have a fever and a chill. I have a cold. I have the flu. I'm turning green and pink and blue. I have the sweats. I have the shakes, a stuffy nose, and bellyaches. My knees are weak. My vision's blurred. My throat is sore. My voice is slurred. I'm strewn with head lice, ticks, and mites. I'm covered in mosquito bites. I have a cough, a creak, a croak, a reddish rash from poison oak, a feeble head, a weakened heart. I may just faint or fall apart. I sprained my ankle, stubbed my toes, and soon I'll start to decompose. And one more thing I have today that makes me have to go away. It's just as bad as all the rest: I also have a science test. ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Deanna Seltzer, 28, Lake Worth, Floriduh Woman attacks parents for not taking her to Outback A woman from Lake Worth is accused of attacking her parents with a knife for not taking her to Outback Steakhouse. Deanna Seltzer, 28, is facing two counts of aggravated assault, battery, and battery on a person over 65 years old. A report from the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said Seltzer became enraged after she asked her parents to go to Outback on Wednesday afternoon. Her mom said "No." That's when Seltzer flipped over the glass dining room table and other furniture throughout the home. Deputies said she also hit her mom, grabbed a 12-inch decorative knife and chased her dad around the home, threatening to kill him. Her father eventually wrestled the knife away from her. Seltzer is free on bond. A judge ordered her to undergo a mental health evaluation within days of her release from jail.
>From Anna While visiting my son on his Army base, I chatted with a colleague of his. "What rank are you?" I asked. "I'm relieved to say that I've just been promoted from captain to major." "Relieved? Why?" "Because," he replied, "my last name is Hook." From: Steve Re: Big downloads Dear DearWebby, Is there a location to get a current copy of Libre Office from. I am not way savvy on this stuff & made a mess of trying to download it. It gave me several dowloading errors & I could not get it to open properly. Paying a fee for a clean current copy is no problem. Now that I have read your news letter I can go have my morning tea. Thanx, Steve J. Dear Steve It is a huge file, about 120 MB, and on slow dial-up will take a long time to download. If you have a neighbor or friend with a high speed connection, give them a blank CD and ask them to download it and burn it onto the CD for you. CD's are cheap, but shipping is not. Try to get one burned within walking distance. Personally, I would just start the download before you go to bed. By morning it will be finished even on a very slow dial-up. Have FUN! DearWebby

In a small town, farmers of the community had gotten together to discuss some important issues. About midway through the meeting, a wife of one of the farmers stood up and spoke her piece. One of the old farmers stood up and said, "What does she know about anything? I would like to ask her if she knows how many toes a pig has?" Quick as a flash, the woman replied, "Take off your boots John, and count them yourself!"

A young woman was preparing a ham dinner. After she cut off the end of the ham, she placed it in a pan for baking. Her friend asked her,"Why did you cut off the end of the ham"? And she replied ,"I really don't know but my mother always did, so I thought you were supposed to." Later when talking to her mother she asked her why she cut off the end of the ham before baking it, and her mother replied,"I really don't know, but that's the way my mom always did it." A few weeks later while visiting her grandmother, the young woman asked, "Grandma, why is it that you cut off the end of a ham before you bake it?" Her grandmother replied ,"Well dear, otherwise it would never fit into my baking pan, because hams were bigger in those days." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Caring For Cut Flowers Using pruning shears (not scissors), make a fresh cut at the bottom of the stem under running water. Strip away all leaves that will be below the water line so they don't rot. Change the water once a day and add 2 Tbsp. of sugar to act as a preservative. ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An elderly Dutch man asked the local priest to hear his confession. "Father, during World War II a beautiful woman knocked on my door and asked me to hide her from the Germans. I hid her in my attic." The priest replied: "That was a wonderful thing you did, my son, and you have no need to confess." "It's worse, Father. I was weak and told her she must repay me with her sexual favours." "You were both in great danger and would have suffered terribly if the Germans had found her. Heaven, in its wisdom and mercy, will balance the good and evil, and judge you kindly. You are forgiven." "Thank you, Father. That's a great load off my mind. But I have one more question." "And what is that?" "Should I tell her the war is over?" ___________________________________________________ Thanks to Andrew for this story: When my mother was called for jury duty, she felt confident of her ability to answer the questions asked of prospective jurors. As a young attorney, I had filled her in on what to expect. Asked about the occupations of family members, Mom answered, "My son is a lawyer." As a follow-up, she was asked if she had ever used the services of an attorney. "Only to mow my lawn." ___________________________________________________
