"Here is the situation," she said. "A man is standing up in a boat in the middle of a river, fishing. He loses his balance, falls in, and begins splashing and yelling for help. His wife hears the commotion, knows he can't swim, and runs down to the bank. Why do you think she ran to the bank?" A girl raised her hand and asked, "To draw out all his savings?" _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ The patrol officer stopped a motorist for a traffic violation. Standing outside his expensive foreign car, the red-faced driver frantically waved his hands and jumped up and down. "I'll have your job for this!" He shouted at the top of his lungs. "Sir, you wouldn't want my job," replied the unruffled officer as he wrote out the citation.

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Amy Murray, 4'11", 40, Jefferson City, Missouri Woman Killed Husband to Marry Man Serving Life A Missouri prison nurse who had an affair with a lifer may now face a life sentence of her own. Amy Murray, 40, has been charged with first-degree murder in the Dec. 11 death of husband Joshua Murray, Fox reports. His body was found after a fire at the couple's home. Investigators determined that the fire was deliberately set and Joshua Murray was already dead, poisoned with antifreeze, when it broke out. Police say Murray killed her husband because she wanted to marry Eugene Claypool, an inmate at Murray's workplace, the Jefferson City Correctional Center. Investigators say that according to recordings of prison phone conversations, Murray, who has an 11-year-old son, told Claypool that she wanted to divorce her husband and later told the inmate she could marry him because her husband was dead and "out of the picture," the News Tribune reports. Murray and Claypool who has been behind bars since 2001 for the murder of a 72-year-old lottery winner also discussed hiring an attorney to secure his early release. Her bail was set at $750,000 after she was charged Friday, KRCG reports.

Six retired Floridians were playing poker in the condo clubhouse when Meyerwitz loses $500 on a single hand, clutches his chest, and drops dead at the table. Showing respect for their fallen comrade, the other five continued playing standing up. Finkelstein looks around and asks, "So, who is going to tell his wife?" They draw straws. Goldberg picks the short one. They tell him to use good judgment, be discreet, and be gentle.. Don't make a bad situation any worse. "Discreet? I'll be the most discreet person you will ever meet. Discretion is my middle name. Just leave it to me." Goldberg goes over to the Meyerwitz apartment, and knocks on the door. The wife answers and asks what he wants. Goldberg declares, "Your husband just lost $500, and is afraid to come home." "TELL HIM TO DROP DEAD!" she yells. "I'll go tell him," says Goldberg.

A lady answered her front door to find a plumber standing there. "I'm here to fix the leaky pipe," he announced. "I didn't call a plumber," said the lady. "What?" huffed the plumber. "Aren't you Mrs. Frobisher?" The Frobishers moved out of this house over a year ago," explained the lady. "How do you like that," grunted the plumber. "They call you up and tell you it's an emergency and then they move away!" ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from The Fine Print with Your Statement When banks make a change to your account or fee schedule, they usually include a small pamphlet with your bank and credit card statements, usually on thin paper in extremely small print.

___________________________________________________ A pediatrician in town always plays a game with some of his young patients to put them at ease and test their knowledge of body parts. One day, while pointing to a little boy's ear, the doctor asked him, "Is this your nose?" Immediately the little boy turned to his mother and said, "Mom, I think we'd better find a new doctor!" ___________________________________________________ >From Ella We are fortunate our grand-children live close by and visit us often. When our seven-year-old granddaughter, Morgan, comes over, she loves to watch her grandmother when she is baking. "Oma," she asked one day, "where did you learn how to cook?" She told her that she learned from her mother and passed on this knowledge to her daughter. Someday, she continued, her mother will pass on this knowledge to her. There was a short silence, "No, I don't think so," Morgan said. "Mom just peels the plastic and then puts everything in the microwave." ___________________________________________________

I'm a counselor who helps coordinate support groups for visually-impaired adults. Many participants have a condition known as macular degeneration, which makes it difficult for them to distinguish facial features. I had just been assigned to a new group and was introducing myself. Knowing that many in the group would not be able to see me well, I jokingly said, "For those of you who can't see me, I've been told that I look like a cross between Paul Newman and Robert Redford." Immediately, one woman called out, "We're not THAT blind!" ___________________________________________________
