Two women friends had gone for a "girls night out". They
both were very faithful,loving wives... however, they had
gotten a bit over enthusiastic on Bacardi Breezers.
Incredibly drunk and walking home, they needed to pee,
so they stopped in a cemetery.
One had nothing to wipe with so she decided to take off
her panties and use them. Her friend, however, was
wearing expensive panties and didn't want to ruin them...
luckily she had squatted next to a grave that had a fresh
wreath with a ribbon on she proceeded to wipe
with that.
After the girls completed their "business" they continued
toward home.
The following day, one of the women's husband was concerned
that his normally sweet and innocent wife was still in bed
and hung over. He phoned the other husband, and said
"These girls nights out have got to stop! I'm starting to
suspect the worst! My wife came home with no panties!"...
"That's nothing!" said the other husband, "mine came back
with a card stuck to her butt that read:

Suffering from a bad case of the flu, the outraged
patient bellowed, "Three weeks? The doctor can't see
me for three weeks? I could well be dead by then!"
Calmly the voice at the other end of the line replied,
"If so, would you have your wife call to cancel the
Sounds familiar.
I got a bad case of gout late last week:
It is not due to my ascetic diabetic diet, but possibly
due to the diabetes and the water pills.
Yesterday I got to see my doctor.
He told me to come back in 2 weeks.
Today I found out that sometimes it goes away in 7 days.

Toscha Fay Sponsler,
Texas woman slipped handcuffs,
took police SUV on 100-MPH chase
Texas police published video Tuesday showing a shoplifting
suspect slipping out of her handcuffs, stealing a police SUV
and leading officers on a breathtaking high-speed chase.
The woman, identified as Toscha Fay Sponsler, 33, of Pollok,
Texas, ran away from Lufkin police officers responding to a
call of a possible shoplifter at a beauty supply store on
Saturday. After the officers ran her down on foot, Sponsler
was cuffed behind her back and buckled into a seatbelt in
the back of a patrol SUV, police said.
Video from the SUV's internal camera records Sponsler deftly
wriggling out her handcuffs, keeping a wary eye out and
playing possum whenever someone in uniform passes by the
window. With a build like an 8 year old boy she easiy
clambers through the sliding partition and over into the
front seat, then speeds off, with officers vainly trying to
run after her on foot.
Video from the unit's dash camera records Sponsler speeding
and veering across lanes, at one point swerving to avoid a
spike strip that a roadside officer tosses into the street.
After what police said was a 23-minute pursuit at speeds
hitting 100 mph, officers maneuver Sponsler into making a
hard turn into a residential yard more than 20 miles away in
the town of Zavalla, where she loses control of the SUV and
finally comes to a stop. Officers break through the
driver's-side window and toss Sponsler on the ground, where
they cuff her again, a bit toghter this time.
Sponsler remained in the Angelina County Jail on $18,000
bond on Tuesday night, charged with five felony counts of
escape with the threat of a deadly weapon, aggravated
assault, unauthorized use of a vehicle, possession of a
controlled substance and evading arrest, according to jail
The deadly weapon was a police shotgun mechanically locked
to the SUV, which pursuing officers said they saw Sponsler
reach for repeatedly.

Re: How safe is Skype
Dear Webby,
My daughter wants me to install Skype in my computer at home
and in the office, to save on phone bills. How safe is
Dear Karen
Skype is perfectly safe. It is so heavily encrypted, that
even if somebody figured a way to intercept it, they could
not extract any information. Also, it does not open any
security holes like many other programs do.
Even though it is nowhere near as good as before Microsoft
bought it for $8.5 Billion to make sure Google did not get
it, Skype is really easy on computer's resources. There is
no need to shut it down now and then to release hogged
It's not just for talking and video chatting for free over
the net. It includes a text chat module for typing back and
forth and sending pictures, movies, music, links, etc.
You can even send SMS messages to cell phones.
Voice quality is still very good, often better than over a
We have used Skype for tech support for about 18 years now,
and have never had a problem with it.
I normally just use text chat, because it allows people to
copy and paste. My father is the only exception. I video
chat 5 - 10 minutes with him every day, noon my time, 8 PM
his time in Austria. Why not? It is free,
and at his age typing is a nuisance.
Have FUN!
An artist, a lawyer, and a computer scientist are
discussing the merits of a mistress.
The artist tells of the passion, the thrill which comes
with the risk of being discovered.
The lawyer warns of the difficulties. It can lead to guilt,
divorce, bankruptcy. Not worth it. Too many problems.
The computer scientist says, "It's the best thing that's
ever happened to me. My wife thinks I'm with my mistress.
My mistress thinks I'm home with my wife, and I can spend
all night on the computer!"

Daily tip from
Strong Necklace Thread
Tired of your necklace breaking? Restring it with fishing
line. Fishing line is very strong and inexpensive.
Tip provided by
Dont get too carried away! Choose a fishing line, that is
not stronger than your neck! Test it by snagging it on a
coat hook. 10lb or 15lb is strong enough and usually won't
kill you.

Keli and Anni were flying Arkansas Airlines to Minneapolis.

worry about nothing. We're gonna teach you how to land the
plane, step by step. Just leave everything to us.
First, how high are you , and what's your position?"
Keli thought for a minute, then said, "I'm five foot two
and I'm all the way to the front of the plane."
"No! No!" answer the tower. "What's your altitude, and
where are you located?"
Keli said, "Man, right now I've got a poor attitude, an I'm
from Caraway, Arkansas!!"
"No! No! No!" came an exasperated voice. "I need to know
how many feet you got off the ground and where your plane
is in relation to the airport!"
Keli, she starts to panic by this time, and says, "Counting
Anni's feet and mine together, we got four feet off the
ground and I don't believe this plane is related to your
A long pause ---- the silence was deafening. "We need to
know who is your next of kin."

Dear Webby,
I am consistently amazed at your easy, common sense replies
to some of the trickiest questions, not like the insecure
and usually clueless answers I get from my ISP's and my
web host's tech support.

Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat
because he had an important
meeting and couldn't find a parking place.
Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on
me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every
Sunday for the rest of me life, ---
and give up me Irish Whiskey."
Miraculously, a parking place appeared.
Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, Lord,
I found one."
