There was a hideous buzzing noise emanating from the dash - you guessed it! - her battery powered lover had turned itself on inside the glove box! As we removed it from the car to display the cause, she was instantly silenced while the surrounding customers could barely contain themselves. Needless to say, we never saw that customer again. ___________________________________________________ if you can spare a coin, please hit paypal with it! ___________________________________________________ Owing to the advance in medical technology, surgical technique and the fact that silicone breast implants have been determined to be perfectly safe, a California cosmetic surgery practice is opening a new office where breast augmentation surgery is done on an outpatient basis in about 30 minutes, not counting the paperwork, which you can do online at home.

The stockbroker replied, "I got laid last night." ___________________________________________________ Reported by Rock An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Brittany Barnes and Ceairah Beverly, Missouri, USA Missouri children kidnapped by mother without custody found in Arizona Three children who were reportedly kidnapped in Missouri have been found safe in Arizona. U.S. Marshals say Brittany Barnes didn't have custody of her three kids, ages 8, 9 and 10, when she took them on March 23. They were found on May 13 at Casino Del Sol in Tucson. Officials said Barnes and her wife, Ceairah Beverly, had fled with the kids without permission during a scheduled visitation. An arrest warrant was issued on April 8, and investigators discovered information that placed all five of them in Arizona. Marshals began doing surveillance days earlier after tracking them down to a hotel near Tucson. Eventually, authorities found their vehicle parked outside of Casino Del Sol, and confirmed that the group had been staying at the hotel there. Barnes and her wife were both arrested and are awaiting extradition to Missouri. ____________________________________________________ If you can help with the cost of the Humor Letter, please donate what you can! ______________________________________________________ DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Ian Re: Investment advice Dear Webby What do you think about all those investment advice newsletters out there?

"My first wife died of cancer, my second wife turned out to be a lesbian and ran off with another woman and took all our savings, my son's in prison for trying to kill me, my daughter got run over by a bus, my house was hit by a low-flying aircraft, my vintage car rolled off the dockside into the sea, I had to have my dog put down recently, my doctor says that I have an incurable disease and to cap it all, my business has just gone bust." "Oh dear, that sounds terrible." Ed said. "What business were you in?" "I sell lucky charms," said Ted.

_____________________________________________ Every night after dinner, Harry took off for the local watering hole. He would spend the whole evening there and always arrive home, well inebriated, around midnight each night. He usually had trouble getting his key to fit the keyhole and couldn't get the door open. And, every time this happened, his wife would go to the door and let him in. Then, she would proceed to yell and scream at him for his constant nights out and coming home in a drunken state. But, Harry still continued his nightly routine. One day, the distraught wife was talking to a friend about her husband's behavior. The friend listened and suggested, "Why don't you treat him a little differently when he comes home? Instead of berating him, why don't you give him some loving words and welcome him home with a kiss? Then, he might change his ways." The wife thought that this might be a good idea. That night, Harry took off again after dinner. And, at about midnight, he arrived home in his usual condition. His wife heard him at the door. She quickly opened it and let Harry in. Instead of berating him as she had always done, this time she took his arm and led him into the living room. She sat Harry down in an easy chair, put his feet up on the foot stool, and took his shoes off. Then, she went behind him and started to cuddle him a little. After a short while, she whispered to Harry, "It's pretty late, dear. I think we should go upstairs to bed now, don't you think?" Harry replied in his inebriated state, "Heck, I guess we might as well. I'll get in trouble when I get home anyway!" ______________________________________________ --------From Linda What did Gallileo Gallilei get jailed for? He was an astronomer and inventor, as far as I remember school. Linda-------- Hi Linda Gallileo Gallilei wrote about the sun being the center of the solar system, not the earth and Rome, and with the earth rotating around the sun, much like the moon is rotating around the earth. Rome, the Catholice church, did not like that idea. ______________________________________________
