Eighty percent of married men cheat in America. The rest cheat in Europe. --- Jackie Mason (1934 - ) If you make people think they're thinking, they'll love you; But if you really make them think, they'll hate you. --- Don Marquis (1878 - 1937) Anyone who goes to a psychiatrist ought to have his head examined. --- Samuel Goldwyn ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ >From Jean A woman goes to a counselor, worried about her husband's temper. The counselor asks, "What's the problem? The woman says, "I don't know what to do. Every day my husband loses his temper for no reason. It scares me." The Counselor says, "I have a cure for that. When it seems your husband is getting angry, take a double shot of Jack Daniel's and swish it in your mouth. Swish and swish, but don't swallow until he either leaves the room or calms down." Two weeks later, she goes back to the counselor, looking fresh and reborn. She tells the counselor, "That was a brilliant idea. Every time my husband started to get angry, I swished the Jack. I swished and swished, and he calmed down. How does swishing Jack Daniel's in your mouth do that? The counselor said, "The Jack Daniel's does nothing. Keeping your mouth shut is the trick. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A radical feminist is getting on a bus when, just in front of her, a man gets up from his seat. She thinks to herself, "Here's another man trying to keep up the customs of a patriarchal society by offering a poor, defenseless woman his seat," so she pushes him back onto the seat. A few minutes later, the man tries to get up again. She is still insulted so she refuses to let him up again. Finally, the man says, "Look, lady, you've got to let me get up. I'm twelve blocks past my stop already." ______________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Richard J. Betters Jr., Schenectady, New York Schenectady man mistakenly texted drug offer to detective A Schenectady man apparently got his phone numbers mixed up, and that got him arrested, police said. Richard J. Betters Jr. is facing a charge of third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a felony, after he sent a text message of a drug offer to a Rotterdam police detective, police said. The detective played along with the offer and arrested Betters, 44, of 626 Lansing St., on Tuesday at the Rotterdam Taco Bell, where Betters was found to be in possession of 20 Oxycodone pills, police said. “It’s kind of an unusual one,” Rotterdam Police Lt. William Male said of the case. Police believe Betters had the detective’s mobile number because of prior dealings the detective had with him. Betters’ mugshot showed facial injuries that were present when police encountered him, Male said. Betters was arraigned and ordered held on $20,000 bail.
From: Earl Re: USB versus FireWire Dear DearWebby, What is the difference between a usb 3.5 inch firewire enclosure and a usb drive enclosure? Thanks for all the help and answers. Earl Dear Earl FireWire is for Apple (Mac) machines, USB is for PC. You can use the same hard drive, but the connection to the machine is different. The hard drive enclosure is the adapter. If you run Windows, then you need a USB enclosure, if you run a Mac OS, then you need a FireWire enclosure. Have FUN! DearWebby

A man and a little boy entered a barbershop together. After the man received the full treatment - shave, manicure, haircut, etc. - he placed the boy in the chair. "I'm goin' to buy a green tie to wear for the parade," he said. "I'll be back in a few minutes." When the boy's haircut was done and the man still hadn't returned, the barber said, "It looks like your daddy forgot all about you." "That wasn't my daddy," said the boy. "He just walked up, took me by the hand and said, 'Come on, son, we're gonna get a free haircut!'"

Laura's husband, Ron, was called into his bank to discuss his accounts. "Your finances are in terrible shape," the banker stated. "Your checking account is overdrawn, your loan is overdue." "Yes, I know." said Ron. "It's my wife Laura, she is out of control." "Why do you allow your wife to spend more money than you have?" asked the banker. "Frankly," replied Ron with a deep sigh, "because I'd rather argue with you than with her." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Get Your Air Conditioner and Fans Ready Get your air conditioner annual maintenance done before hot weather hits.

Daddy's not home," the baby sitter replied. "Since I'm responsible for you while he's gone, I can sit here. Today I'm the boss." Justin, the 4 year old, quickly piped up, "If you're the boss, you sit over there in Mommy's chair!" ___________________________________________________ At one point in my life I had considered joining the Baptist Church. For those of you who don't know, the Baptists practice total body immersion to baptize a person. Luckily I even knew a minister in that faith, having dated his daughter, and I asked him if he would consider performing the service. He paused a minute or two, gave me a long thoughtful look and said, "If you're serious about this, a dipping just won't do it for you. We'll have to find a place to anchor you overnight." ___________________________________________________

Lynn reported for her university final examination that consists of "yes/no" type questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question paper for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet "Yes" for Heads and "No" for Tails. Within half an hour she is all done, whereas the rest of the class is sweating it out. During the last few minutes, she is seen desperately throwing the coin, muttering and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is going on. "I finished the exam in half an hour, but I'm rechecking my answers." ___________________________________________________
