Today's Bonehead Award: British sisters mock disabled homeless woman for being a 'HUNCHBACK' then beat her senseless breaking her nose and eye socket _______________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! _______________________________________________ Not every story has explosions and car chases. That's why they have nudity and espionage. --- Bill Barnes and Gene Ambaum An idiot with a plan will beat a genius without a plan. --- Socratex "If it's free, it's advice; if you pay for it, it's counseling; if you can use either one, it's a miracle." --- Jack Adams _______________________________________________ Serving as a Marine recruiter in western North Carolina, I found a young man who met all the requirements and was ready to enlist. I explained the importance of being truthful on the application, and he began filling out his paper work. But when he got to the question "Do you own any foreign property or have any foreign financial interests?" he looked up at me with a worried expression. "Well," he confessed, "I do own a Toyota." We enlisted him that day. ________________________________________________` Thanks to Penny for this: Wisconsin Punkin Patch ____________________________________________________

Molly received two years. Shocking footage shows two sisters mocking a disabled homeless woman for being a 'hunchback' before battering her in the street. Katie Thomasson, 24, and younger sister Molly, 21, launched the savage assault which left victim Jodie Gillett with a broken nose and a smashed eye socket. Miss Gillett was left hospitalised for two days as a result of being repeatedly punched and kicked in the face in Worcester city centre on March 16. CCTV shows Katie approach the victim, who suffers from curvature of the spine, pretending to hobble along the street mimicking a hunchback. She then grabbed Miss Gillett by the hair and punched her several times in the face before Molly joined in. Last week the evil sisters, both of Worcester, were jailed after admitting causing grievous bodily harm.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Larry Re: Incredimail not sending Dear Webby, I have a problem sending out email. I have incredimail. It lets incoming mail in, but can't send any out. This started happening when I got high speed interneet. Incredimail says that I need to go to my firewall and uncheck it and add incredimail. I'm having trouble finding and adding incredimail. Can you help me in this matter. Thank you Larry Dear Larry Don't expect usable info from Incredimail support. Your firewall settings regarding email don't change when you switch fom dial-up to DSL. Most likely you just have to change the SMTP server name over to the one of your new DSL ISP. Same as when you travel, you have to always put in the SMTP server name that you use at the time. Your DSL provider should have that listed on their site, or you can call them. Have FUN! DearWebby

Friday, we had a tornado drill. We were in the generator pit under underneath the garage and there's a PA announcement "This is a tornado drill. Please move quickly away from any and all windows." Somebody yelled out: "Quick, switch to LINUX!"

Groan Alert! What disease can you get from kissing birds? Chirpes! (A canarial disease, but it's untweetable.) ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from font color="#009990"> Storing Wood Furniture When you are storing nice wood furniture, make sure you store it in a dry, well ventilated room. If you store it in a damp basement, you could discover moldy and warped furniture when you go to retrieve it. thriftyfun.Com Don't get too carried away with the "well ventilated" bit. Unless it is as well varnished as a fiddle, it will absorb humidity on humid days. Best is to use furniture bags or tightly taped plastic. Just as important is proper and level stacking. Otherwise shelves turn into propellers and tables and chairs turn into rockers. Unless you have a definite time table for refinishing or using the furniture, your best bet is to sell it and put the money onto a furniture store lay-away plan for a future purchase. ____________________________________________________

He knocks on the door of a little hotel. "Sorry, we don't have a spare room," says the manager, "but you're welcome to share with a little red-headed schoolteacher, if that's okay." "Oh, that'll be great," says the bloke, grinning from ear to ear."And don't worry, I'll be a real gentleman." "Just as well," says the manager. "So will the little red-headed schoolteacher." __________________________________________________
