When Michael began a tale, which I was sure he had told before, I gave him a kick under the table. There was no response, so I gave him another poke. Still the story went on. Suddenly he stopped, grinned and said, "Oh, but I've told you this one before, haven't I?" We all chuckled and changed the subject. Later, on the dance floor, I asked my husband why it had taken him so long to get my message. "What do you mean?" he replied. "I cut the story off as soon as you kicked me." "But I kicked you twice and it still took you awhile to stop!" Suddenly we realized what had happened. Sheepishly we returned to our table. The boss smiled and said, "Don't worry. After the second one I figured it wasn't for me, so I passed it along!" ______________________________________________________ Cool Duck! _____________________________________________________ ___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Lorie Morin, 47, Cocoa, Floriduh Florida woman shoots boyfriend with shotgun because of snoring A woman is facing charges after police said she shot her boyfriend after an argument over his snoring, according to the Brevard County Sheriff's Office.

The teacher was giving her class of seven-year-olds a natural- history lesson. "Worker ants," she told them, "can carry pieces of food five times their own weight. What do you conclude from that?" One child was ready with the answer: "They don't have a union."

To impress his date, the young man took her to a very chick Italian restaurant. After sipping some fine wine, he picked up the menu and studied it with an appraising eye. "We'll have the Giuseppe Spomdalucci," he said finally. "Sorry, sir," said the waiter. "That's the owner." ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Thriftyfun.com Higher Interest Savings You are using your bank's savings account, you may want to consider one of the online savings accounts.

___________________________________________________ Thanks to Lynn for this story: Dear Webby, love your humor letter! This really happened to me at the hardware store today: My husband told me to meet him at the hardware store. While wandering through the aisles looking for him, one of the nice young ladies who worked there asked me if she could help me find something. I replied, "Oh, I'm just looking for my husband." She grinned and replied, "Afraid I can't help you with that; we used to carry husbands, but not any more; we kept getting too many returns." Lynn ___________________________________________________ A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counselling came up. "Oh, we'll never need that. My husband and I have a great relationship," the wife explained. "He was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts." "He communicates really well and I just act like I'm listening." ___________________________________________________

Thanks to Don for this one: I graduated from a private school that I didn't like much. Once I was out of there, I had no particular desire to ever contribute to their latest fund drive or athletic events. Sure enough, Alumni Affairs staff called my folks, got my current number and tracked me down. 'So, what have you been doing with yourself?' the perky alumnus asked. I responded, "Oh, not a lot. Just the same as when I was at the college: Stealing cars and running moonshine and selling dope." They have never called back. ___________________________________________________
