"Shucks, I'd sooner spend my money on a cow," said the farmer. "Ah," replied the salesman, "but think how silly you'd look riding around on a cow." "Humph!" retorted the farmer.

He said, "I feel terrible. Please examine me and tell me what's wrong with me." "Let's begin with a few questions," said the doctor, "Do you drink much?" "Alcohol?" said the man. "I'm a teetotaler. Never touch a drop." "How about smoking?" asked the doctor. "Never," replied the man. "Tobacco is bad, and I have strong principles against it." "Well, uh." asked the doctor, "do you have much sex life?" "Oh, no," said the man. "Sex is sin. I'm in bed by 9:30 every night and I always have been." The doctor paused, looked at the man hard, and asked, "Do you have pains in your head?" "Yes," said the man. "I have terrible pains in my head." "O.K.," said the doctor. "That's your trouble. Your halo is on too tight!! ____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Gail Metwally, 47, Elkton, Maryland, USA Maryland woman set home on fire with person inside, then sat in lawn chair to watch A Maryland woman set her home on fire with a person inside it and then sat outside in a lawn chair to watch, according to law enforcement. The Deputy State Fire Marshals say 47-year-old Gail Metwally set several fires inside the home on Cherry Lane in Elkton. When firefighters arrived, they say the house was engulfed in flame, and Metwally had been sitting in a lawn chair watching the scene. She later walked away. Witnesses said another person could be heard crying for help in the basement, and they helped her up through a window. Cecil County sheriff’s deputies caught Metwally in the area and transported her to a State Police barrack. After the fire marshals’ investigation, Metwally was sharged with first and second-degree attempted murder, first-degree arson, first-degree assault, two counts of first-degree malicious burning, two counts of malicious destruction of property and two counts of reckless endangerment. Metwally shared the house with three other people. Two of the residents were not home.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits FROM: Robert RE: Fake FB friend requests Dear Webby Lately I have received 3-4 friend requests from FB, they are all from alleged women, who have not filled out their profile, and have just one picture, that appears to be stolen from some porno site. Needless to say, my wife gets quite annoyed about it all, and accuses me of inviting the bimbos. What can I do to stop that, without blocking legitimate frined requests, that my wife gets? Robert
Dear Robert You can't stop that. Keep in mind that FB is a Stalinist dictatorship, and they really don't give a hoot about you. They make Billions from ads on the phony friend requests, and blocking the ads does not seem to stop them. Just use Skype or ZOOM with real friends. Nobody listens to you on FB anyway. Have FUN! DearWebby
In the dorm, one of the favorite intramural sports was water fights. Dousing and bombarding one another with water from squirt guns, glasses, balloons, even wastebaskets. Since each room had a sink, there was endless ammunition. The most frequent target was the resident assistant. Approaching his room one afternoon, he noticed his door was ajar. Looking up, he saw a pail of water balanced on the door's edge, ready to fall on him. As he took down the pail and emptied it into his sink, he thought, 'Those crazy guys actually thought they could fool me with that old gag!' It was then he realized that "those crazy guys" had removed the drainpipe beneath the sink and turned the "U" shaped part of it to point just below his waistline.

A tourist parked his car in downtown Washington, D.C. He said
to a man standing near the curb, "Listen, I'm going to be only
a couple of minutes. Would you watch my car while I run into
this store?"

"What?" the man huffed. "Do you realize that I am a member of
the United States Senate?"

"Well no," the tourist said, "I didn't realize that. Guess I
better find somebody a bit more trustworthy!""


The drill sergeant making his morning announcements to a group
of newcomers in a training camp, stated:
"Today, gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news.
First, the good. Private Brandy will be setting the pace on our
morning run.'

With this the platoon was overjoyed, as Private Brandy  was
overweight and terribly slow. But then the drill sergeant
finished his statement:

"Now for the bad news. Private Brandy will be driving the
ambulance, that we might need for those who don't manage to
stay ahead of me."
