he jumped over the fence into our yard!"
"That must've been scary", said the teacher.
"It sure was", said the little girl. "My kitty raised his back, went

Jennifer, a manager at Wal-Mart, had the task of hiring someone to
fill a job opening. After sorting through a stack of 20 resumes she
found four people who were equally qualified. Jennifer decided to call
the four in and ask them only one question. Their answer would determine
which of them would get the job.
The day came and as the four sat around the conference room table,
Jennifer asked, 'What is the fastest thing you know of?' The first
man replied, 'A THOUGHT.' It just pops into your head. There's no
warning. 'That's very good!' replied Jennifer. 'And, now you sir?',
she asked the second man. 'Hmmm....let me see 'A blink! It comes and goes
and you don't know that it ever happened.. A BLINK is the fastest thing
I know of.' 'Excellent!' said Jennifer.'The blink of an eye, that's a
very popular clich? for speed.'
She then turned to the third man, who was contemplating his reply..
'Well, out at my dad's ranch, you step out of the house and on the
wall there's a light switch.. When you flip that switch, way out across
the pasture the light on the barn comes on in less than an instant. 'Yip,
TURNING ON A LIGHT is the fastest thing I can think of'.
Jennifer was very impressed with the third answer and thought she had
found her man. 'It 's hard to beat the speed of light,' she said.
Turning to BUBBA,the fourth and final man, Jennifer posed the same
question. Old Bubba replied, 'After hearing the previous three
answers, it's obvious to me that the fastest thing known is DIARRHEA.'
'WHAT!?' said Jennifer, stunned by the response... 'Oh sure', said
BUBBA. 'You see, the other day I wasn't feeling so good, and I ran for
the bathroom, but before I could THINK, BLINK, or TURN ON THE
LIGHT, I had already sh*t my pants.' BUBBA is now the new greeter at
the Wal-Mart near you!
You probably will think of this every time you enter a Wal-Mart from now

An elderly couple, who were both widowed, had been going out with each
other for a long time.
Urged on by their friends, they decided it was finally time to get married.
Before the wedding they went out to dinner and had a long conversation
regarding how their marriage might work.
They discussed finances, living arrangements, and so on.
Finally, the old gentleman decided it was time to broach the subject of
their physical relationship.
"How do you feel about s*x?" he asked, rather tentatively
"I would like it infrequently" she replied.
The old gentleman sat quietly for a moment ...
adjusted his glasses, and leaned over towards her and whispered
"Excuse me but is that one word or two?"..........

MOTHER OF ALL JOKES . . .
Two Middle Eastern mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of
tabouli and a pint of goat's milk.
The older of the mothers pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping
through photos. And they start reminiscing.
'This is my oldest son Mohammed. He would be 24 years old now.'
'Yes, I remember him as a baby' says the other mother cheerfully.
'He's a martyr now though' mum confides. 'Oh, so sad dear' says the other.
And this is my second son Kalid. He would be 21'
'Oh, I remember him,' says the other happily, 'he had such curly hair when
he was born'. 'He's a martyr too' says mum quietly.
'Oh, gracious me ...' Says the other.
'And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed.
He would be 18, she whispers. 'Yes' says the friend enthusiastically,
'I remember when he first started school' 'He's a martyr also,' says mum,
with tears in her eyes.
After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at
the photographs and says...
'They blow up so fast, don't they?'

LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION
Trevor Adams, my assistant programmer, can always be found
hard at work in his cubicle. Trevor works independently, without
wasting company time talking to colleagues. Trevor never
thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
finishes given assignments on time. Often he takes extended
measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
breaks. Trevor is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
knowledge in his field.. I firmly believe that Trevor can be
classed as a high-calibre employee, the type that cannot be
dispensed with. Consequently, I truly recommend that Trevor be
promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
executed as soon as possible.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida - Here's a recession bargain: the space shuttle.
NASA has slashed the price of these 1970s era spaceships from $42 million
to $28.8 million apiece.
The shuttles are for sale once they quit flying, supposedly this fall.
When the Natonial Aeronautics and Space Administration put out the call to
museums, schools and others in December 2008, seeking buyers,
about 20 expressed interest. NASA spokesman Mike Curie expects more
interest, especially with the discount.

The latest War on Terror update
In light of the situation ................
The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats
and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved."
Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or
even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the
blitz in 1940 when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been
re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the
British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588 when
threatened by the Spanish Armada.
The Scots raised their threat level from "Pxxxed Off" to "Let's get the
Bastewards" They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have
been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.
The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror
alert level from "Run" to "Hide". The only two higher levels in France are
"Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire
that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the
country's military capability. It's not only the French who are on a
heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from
"Shout loudly and excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more
levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."
The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to
"Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher
levels: "Invade a neighbour" and "Lose".
Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only
threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels.
The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy.
These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy
can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.
Americans meanwhile and as usual are carrying out preemptive strikes, on
all of their allies, just in case.
And in the southern hemisphere...
New Zealand has also raised its security levels - from "baa" to
"BAAAA!". Due to continuing defence cutbacks (the air force being a
squadron of spotty teenagers flying paper aeroplanes and the navy some toy
boats in the Prime Minister's bath), New Zealand only has one more level of
escalation, which is "I hope Australia will come and rescue us".
Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to
"She'll be right, mate". Three more escalation levels remain: "Crikey!',
"I think we'll need to cancel the barbie this weekend" and "The barbie is
cancelled". So far no situation has ever warranted use of the final

"A young girl boards Flight BA3345 from Heathrow to New York and finds a
seat in 1st class. As the Stewardesses check all the passengers, one
Stewardess asks the young girl for her ticket. The young girl hands over
her ticket, to which the Stewardess replied: "I'm sorry, but you are sat
in the wrong seat" in a helpful manner.
"I'm young, blonde and beautiful, and I'm going to New York to be a
Supermodel and marry a millionaire!" replied the young girl. The Stewardess
was surprised at the young girl's answer, so she decided to call the Senior
Steward. The Senior Steward decided that nobody was getting a free upgrade
to first, so she also informed the young girl that she had sat in the
wrong seat and was to sit in economy at the rear. "I'm young, blonde and
beautiful, and I'm going to New York to be a Supermodel and marry a
millionaire!" replied the young girl in a firmer tone.
The Senior Steward thought that this might be a job for the Co-pilot, so
she asked the Co-pilot to try to resolve this matter. Therefore, the
Co-pilot decided to have a go to see if he could move the young girl.
Miss, but you're sat in the wrong seat" said the Co-pilot. "I'm young,
blonde and beautiful, and I'm going to New York to be a Supermodel and
marry a millionaire!" replied the young girl. "I'm sorry Miss, but if you
don't move to your proper seat, I'll have to ask you to leave the
aircraft" replied the Co-pilot. "I'm young, blonde and beautiful, and I'm
going to New
York to be a Supermodel and marry a millionaire!" replied the young girl.
Being new to this game, the Co-pilot decided to consult the Captain.
"Let me sort her out" said the Captain. The Captain then approached the
young girl and whispered in her ear. As the Captain returned to the Flight
deck, the young girl got out of the seat and proceeded down the aircraft

One rainy spring night in Dublin, a taxi driver spotted an arm waving from

Even before he rolled to a stop at the curb, a figure leaped into the
cab and slammed the door.
Checking his rear view mirror as he pulled away, he was startled to see
a dripping wet, naked woman sitting in the back seat.
'"Where to?" he stammered. "Vale Road, "answered the woman",
"OK," he said, taking another long glance in the mirror.
The woman caught him staring at her and asked, "Just what the hell are
you looking at?'" "Well lady, replied the driver, I noticed that you're
completely naked, and I was just wondering how you'll pay your fare."
The woman spread her legs, put her feet up on the front seat, smiled at
the driver and said, "Does THIS answer your question?"

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their
holiday away from school.
One child wrote the following:
We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to
live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to The
Villages, in Florida. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted
green to look like grass.. They ride around on their bicycles and wear
name tags because they don't know who they are anymore.
They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it
fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't
do them very well..
There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats
At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it.
He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out,
and go cruising in their golf carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out.
And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds. Some of the
people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get
out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck.
My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and
says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too. When I earn my
retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people
out, so they can visit their grandchildren.

"We are delighted that Gov. Palin will, for the first time, be

Gov. Palin praised the decision, adding, "I know many Americans will be

In 1919 when the flu killed 40 million people there was this Doctor that
visited the many farmers to see if he could help them combat the flu.
Many of the farmers and their family had contracted it and many died.
The doctor came upon this one farmer and to his surprise, everyone was
very healthy. When the doctor asked what the farmer was doing that was
different the wife replied that she had placed an unpeeled onion in a
dish in the rooms of the home, (probably only two rooms back then). The
doctor couldn't believe it and asked if he could have one of the onions
and place it under the microscope. She gave him one and when he did
this, he did find the flu virus in the onion. It obviously absorbed the
therefore, keeping the family healthy.
Now, I heard this story from my hairdresser in AZ. She said that several
years ago many of her employees were coming down with the flu and so were
many of her customers. The next year she placed several bowls with onions
around in her shop. To her surprise, none of her staff got sick. It must
work.. (And no, she is not in the onion business.)
The moral of the story is, buy some onions and place them in bowls around
your home. If you work at a desk, place one or two in your office or
under your desk or even on top somewhere. Try it and see what happens.
We did it last year and we never got the flu.
If this helps you and your loved ones from getting sick, all the better.
If you do get the flu, it just might be a mild case..
Whatever, what have you to lose? Just a few bucks on onions!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Now there is a P. S. to this for I sent it to a friend in Oregon who
regularly contributes material to me on health issues. She replied with
this most interesting experience about onions:
Weldon,thanks for the reminder. I don't know about the farmers story...but,
I do know that I contacted pneumonia and needless to say I was very ill...I
came across an article that said to cut both ends off an onion put one end
on a fork and then place the forked end into an empty jar...placing the
jar next to the sick patient at night. It said the onion would be black in
the morning from the germs...sure enough it happened just like that...the
onion was a mess and I began to feel better.
Another thing I read in the article was that onions and garlic placed
around the room saved many from the black plague years ago. They have
powerful antibacterial, antiseptic properties.
This is the other note.
LEFT OVER ONIONS ARE POISONOUS
I have used an onion which has been left in the fridge, and sometimes I
don't use a whole one at one time, so save the other half for later.
Now with this info, I have changed my mind....will buy smaller onions in
I had the wonderful privilege of touring Mullins Food Products, Makers of
mayonnaise. Mullins is huge, and is owned by 11 brothers and sisters in
the Mullins family. My friend, Jeanne, is the CEO.
Questions about food poisoning came up, and I wanted to share what I
learned from a chemist.
The guy who gave us our tour is named Ed. He's one of the brothers Ed is a
chemistry expert and is involved in developing most of the sauce formula.
He's even developed sauce formula for McDonald's.
Keep in mind that Ed is a food chemistry whiz. During the tour, someone
asked if we really needed to worry about mayonnaise. People are always
worried that mayonnaise will spoil. Ed's answer will surprise you. Ed said
that all commercially- made Mayo is completely safe.
"It doesn't even have to be refrigerated. No harm in refrigerating it, but
it's not really necessary." He explained that the pH in mayonnaise is set
at a point that bacteria could not survive in that environment. He then
talked about the quaint essential picnic, with the bowl of potato salad
sitting on the table and how everyone blames the mayonnaise when someone
Ed says that when food poisoning is reported, the first thing the officials
look for is when the 'victim' last ate ONIONS and where those onions came
from (in the potato salad?). Ed says it's not the mayonnaise (as long as
it's not homemade Mayo) that spoils in the outdoors. It's probably the
onions, and if not the onions, it's the POTATOES.
He explained, onions are a huge magnet for bacteria, especially uncooked
onions. You should never plan to keep a portion of a sliced onion.. He
says it's not even safe if you put it in a zip-lock bag and put it in your
It's already contaminated enough just by being cut open and out for a bit,
that it can be a danger to you (and doubly watch out for those onions you
put in your hotdogs at the baseball park!)
Ed says if you take the leftover onion and cook it like crazy you'll
probably be okay, but if you slice that leftover onion and put on your
sandwich, you're asking for trouble. Both the onions and the moist potato
in a potato salad, will attract and grow bacteria faster than any
commercial mayonnaise will even begin to break down.
So, how's that for news? Take it for what you will. I (the author) am going
to be very careful about my onions from now on. For some reason, I see a
lot of credibility coming from a chemist and a company that produces
millions of pounds of mayonnaise every year.'
Also, dogs should never eat onions. Their stomachs cannot metabolize onions

Here are some recent photos of the LCS 2 (to be
USS) Independence . She's at 43 knots here running at half power.
NOTE the absence of a bow wave.
Turns tightly, also; allegedly this also was done
at 43 knots...and from the look of the small bow wave, she's still in the
And then we have the massive helo deck big enough
for a CH-53. Last time I talked with the SURFPAC guys years ago. THIS was
the LCS they liked because of the huge storage capacity under that flight
deck and the size of the flight deck.
Note that there is very little spreading wake.
In fact, it does not look like a wake at all, just foamy water from the
water jets. Somehow, at 40 knots, you'd think there'd be more wake.
But she has one drawback, she's strange looking but
aerodynamically designed, is this beginning of a new design in ships?
Here's a Look at The U.S. Navy's New Pirate
WOW! A couple of these should be able to clean up

This is the U.S.S. Independence (LCS-2)
It is a Triple Hulled, Weapon-Laden Monster..
Here it is under construction....
There have been rumors about the U.S. Navy's speedy
new triple hulled ships, but now they're for real.
The U.S.S Independence was built by General
Dynamics. It's called a "littoral combat ship" (LCS), and the tri-maran can
move its weapons around faster than any other ship in the Navy. (Ironic
that with all that high tech built in, the ship reminds us of the Merrimac
ironclad from Civil War days.)
Littoral means close to shore, and that's where
these very ships will operate. They're tailor-made for launching
helicopters and armored vehicles, sweeping mines and firing all manner of
torpedoes, missiles and machine guns.
These ships are also relatively inexpensive.
This one's a bargain at $208 million, and the Navy plans to build 55 of
This tri-maran is the first of a new fire breathing
breed, ready to scoot out of dry dock at a rumored 60 knots.. It's like a
speedy and heavily armed aircraft carrier for helicopters.
I have a certain empathy with the people of Haiti at the moment, the last
time I had twenty five aftershocks I couldn't find my house either.

Tombstone Hear*e and Trike Company
420 E Pitt Street
While Tombstone Hear*e Company initially conceived the units as an
alternative transportation vehicle that would cater to the families and
loved ones of the over 11 million motorcycle enthusiasts, we are excited
to find that funeral directors state that a large percentage of clients
using the motorcycle hear*e have never even ridden a motorcycle.
Expanding on this base, Tombstone Hear*e Co. has become a prime choice for
many Military and Police funerals and surprisingly even grandmothers due
to the dignity and honor the hear*es provide.
From our conception we at the Tombstone Hear*e Company have prided
ourselves on the quality and features of our coaches. From our first
prototype to the era of the Series III coach we have ensured the
reliability, safety, and style of our coaches are of the highest standards
second to none.
With the Series III Coach, we have surpassed our previously set standards.
Now with a uniform black and chrome style the coach flows as one cohesive
unit bringing out the quality accents that only Tombstone Hear*e Co. can
provide. From the laminated deck floor with cut mohair trim to the crushed
velour curtains that line the decoratively etched safety glass windows, the
Series III is not only a coach, it's a show unit truly worthy of the great
men and women who have traveled to their final destination within.
At Tombstone Hear*e, we admit our units may be more expensive than the
others, but you are paying for both the hear*e and the trike as a unit of
high quality craftsmanship, but most importantly a safe, reliable,
It is the most recognized vehicle in the death care industry, making the
Tombstone Hear*e a great marketing tool which will stand the test of time.
