The bad new is that it will require castration. You have a very rare condition, which causes your testicles to press on your spine and the pressure creates your headache. The only way to relieve the pressure is to remove the testicles." Joe was shocked and depressed. He wondered if he had anything to live for. He had no choice but to go under the knife. When he left the hospital, he was without a headache for the first time in 20 years, but he felt like he was missing an important part of himself. As he walked down the street, he realized that he felt like a different person. He could make a new beginning and live a new life. He saw a men's clothing store and thought, "That's what I need... a new suit." He entered the shop and told the salesman, "I'd like a new suit." The elderly tailor eyed him briefl y and said, "Let's see... size 44 long." Joe laughed, "That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years!", the tailor said. Joe tried on the suit. It fit perfectly. As Joe admired himself in the mirror, the salesman asked, "How about a new shirt?" Joe thought for a moment and then said, "Sure." The salesman eyed Joe and said, "Let's see, 34 sleeves and 16-1/2 neck." Joe was surprised, That's right, how did you know?" "Been in the business 60 years." Joe tried on the shirt and it fit perfectly. Joe walked comfortably around the shop and the salesman asked, "How about some new underwear?" Joe thought for a moment and said, "Sure." The salesman said, "Let's see... size 36." Joe laughed, "Ah ha! I got you, I've worn a size 34 since I was 18 years old." The salesman shook his head, "You can't wear a size 34. A size 34 would press your testicles up against the base of your spine and give you one hell of a headache." _____________________________________________________ The mother of three notoriously unruly youngsters was asked whether or not she'd have children if she had it to do over again.

______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Michael Brandt, 22, Miami, Florida Florida man arrested after breaking into Key Largo home to nap and burgle, swims away from deputies when chased, but is caught by game warden. A man from Miami was arrested in Key Largo on Tuesday night after deputies said he broke into a home to take a nap in the air conditioning. Monroe County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a gated community when a security officer reported that Michael Brandt, 22, was acting suspicious and fled away from him on a bicycle, WPLG reports. When deputies found Brandt outside the neighborhood, he got off his bike, jumped into the water, and swam away. During the deputies' search, a state wildlife officer located Brandt on the roadway and arrested him. Deputies said Brandt admitted to breaking into the home so he could sleep in the cool AC, and that he also stole money in the house, WPLG reports. He remains at the county jail on a $115,000 bond for charges of burglary, grand theft, criminal mischief, and resisting arrest, according to jail records. _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Jessie Re: Tape to CD Dear Webby, I get a lot of good tips from you. Thank you. Can you tell me if there is a way to record from a Cassette to a CD? I have an Iomega Super DVD/CD burner that I can record from my camcorder to, but haven't figured out the cassette. Thanks for any help. Jessie Dear Jessie Yes, sure there is a way. Connect a cable with male 1/8" headphone plugs on each end from the headphone socket on your tape player to the AUX-IN or the microphone socket on your computer, then record it with any sound recording software. The AUX-IN socket is the one that has neither a headphone nor a microphone symbol, but something weird and incomprehensible. often it is color coded blue. Most sound cards come with some basic sound recording software, and you can find lots more with Google. Windows Sound Recorder works too. Recording quality is the same. The difference between different recording software is usually in how easy or complicated it is to splice and edit. Almost all of them are either free or have a free trial period. Just try a bunch of them and find the one that suits you the best. Some of the not-free programs even have fancy scratch and static filters. Save the music in MP3 or MP4 format, so that you can play it in Audio CD and MP3 or MP4 players. Have FUN! DearWebby

From Jerry: Dear Webby, I know that St. Patrick's Day is over, but couldn't pass this by. Jerry An Irishman had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally said that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave and fell flat on his face. He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured he'll crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up. Once outside he stood up and fell flat on his face. So he decided to crawl the 4 blocks to his home. When he arrived at the door he stood up and again fell flat on his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he reached his bed he tried one more time to stand up. This time he managed to pull himself upright, but he quickly fell right into bed and is sound asleep as soon as his head hit the pillow. He was awakened the next morning to his wife standing over him, shouting, "So, you've been out drinking again!!" "What makes you say that?" he asked, putting on an innocent look. "The pub called. You left your wheelchair there again."
