Today's Bonehead Award: Gun Charge For Dope Who Shot Self Below Belt ________________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! ______________________________________________________ I think age is a very high price to pay for maturity. --- Tom Stoppard (1937 - ) The murals in restaurants are on par with the food in museums. --- Peter De Vries _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ A Missouri farmer passed away and left 17 mules to his three sons. The instructions left in the will said that the oldest boy was to get one-half, the second oldest one-third, and the youngest one-ninth. The three sons, recognizing the difficulty of dividing 17 mules into these fractions, began to argue. Their uncle heard about the argument, hitched up his mule and drove out to settle the matter. He added his mule to the 17, making 18. The oldest therefore got one-half, or nine, the second oldest got one-third, or six, and the youngest son got one-ninth, or two. Adding up 9, 6 and 2 equals 17. The uncle, having settled the argument, hitched up his mule and drove home. ______________________________________________________ Let's try that picture again: _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mark Anthony Jones, 46, Marion, Indiana Gun Charge For Dope Who Shot Self Below Belt The Indiana man who accidentally shot himself in the penis and scrotum has been charged with carrying a handgun without a license, according to court records. Mark Anthony Jones, 46, is facing a Class-A misdemeanor weapons charge in connection with the February 28 incident in Marion. A decision to charge Jones (seen at right) was made this month by the Grant County Prosecutor’s Office after police forwarded the case for review. Jones, who lives in Marion, is the subject of an active arrest warrant filed in Marion City Court. According to police, Jones suffered an “accidental self-inflicted gunshot injury” while walking on a Marion street around 6:45 AM. During a hospital interview, Jones told cops that he had an unholstered Hi-Point 9mm handgun tucked in his waistband when the weapon “began to slip.” As detailed in a Marion Police Department report, Jones “stated the gun does not belong to him and would not disclose who the owner was.” Jones claimed that he had been in possession of the firearm for a day and was in the process of purchasing the weapon. While questioning the suspect, an officer “took digital photographs documenting Mr. Jones’ injury/s.” When, Jones said, he “reached down to adjust” the gun, the firearm discharged. “The bullet entered just above his penis and exited his scrotum,”
From: Chris Re: Labels in Open Office Dear DearWebby Can I do labels like address labels with Open Office, or do I have to use WORD for that? Chris Dear Chris Yes, of course! I didn't realize that some people might still be using quaint old-fashioned WORD and Microsoft Office. In Open Office Write you click on File, New, Labels slect the brand, for example Avery, select Sheet, Letter Size, the Avery number, for example 5660. Click on New Document. Paste or type in the address, click on Synchronize, and the address is duplicated into 30 labels, or however many are on the selected brand and type of label sheet. You can, of course also pull different addresses for each label from a database. Just follow the on-screen instructions for that. It's really quite simple and intuitive, as long as you start with FILE, New, Labels Have FUN! DearWebby

A tall, rugged man shows up at the condo pool. Mrs. Goldfarb reacts to this new face, and immediately closes in to begin questioning. She says "I think you might have been here, a long time ago, but I haven't seen you for many years." He says "I've been away." "Oh" she says "certainly not anywhere in Florida. You're very pale." He says "I've been in prison." A longer silence follows, and she says "Well, I know I'm being forward, but could I ask what for?" He says "I murdered my wife", then adds "with an ax." She says "So you're single now?"

Thanks to Erika for this story: At the data-entry company where I work, the other operators and I share a coffeepot. One morning I took it into the ladies room to fill it with water. Then I began preening in the mirror, brushing my hair and reapplying some makeup. I didn't realize how long I'd been until someone slid a note under the door. "You win," it read. Any ransom demand will be met. Just release the coffeepot." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Prevent Eye Glasses and Goggles from Fogging Up Apply a little foaming shaving cream to your glasses and then wipe it off to help prevent them from fogging up.

___________________________________________________ Camping Tips! Take this simple test to see if you qualify for solo camping. Shine a flashlight into one ear. If the beam shines out the other ear, do not go into the woods alone. A two-man pup tent does not include two men or a pup. A potato baked in the coals for three hours makes an excellent trhowing weapon You can start a fire without matches by eating Mexican food, then breathing on a pile of dry sticks. In emergency situations, you can survive in the wilderness by shooting small game with a slingshot made from the elastic waistband of your underwear. The guitar of the noisy teenager at the next campsite makes excellent kindling. Alternately, a ukelele placed on the camping table will keep the next spot free. The sight of a bald eagle has thrilled campers for generations. The sight of a bald man, however, does absolutely nothing for the eagle. It's entirely possible to spend your whole vacation on a winding mountain road behind a large motor home. In an emergency, a drawstring from a parka hood can be used to strangle a snoring tent mate. The most efficient way to get teenagers and spouses to unpack and set up camp, is to supervise from the door of the camp outhouse. ___________________________________________________ Sign posted in the Army recruiting office: "Girs!
