______________________________________________________ Reported by the Bausell Sailor An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by James Pennington, 57, Denver, Colorado Colorado man arrested after castrating transgender woman for pay but without a license. A man without a medical license was arrested after allegedly using an Army surgical kit to remove the testicles of a transgender woman at her apartment, the Denver Police Department said. James Pennington, 57 of Denver, is alleged to have removed the testicles and sutured the opening while the woman's wife watched the 90-minute procedure on Wednesday, according to a probable cause statement. Pennington told the victim if any "complications" developed to call 911, according to the probable cause statement. The wife called 911 about 2 p.m. after blood was seeping from the incision. Paramedics said the testicles could not be reattached because of the time between the procedure and the call to 911, police said. A doctor with Medical Center of Aurora said the victim suffered serious bodily injury and "risk of permanent disfigurement," according to the statement. Pennington was interviewed by police on Thursday and, according to the probable cause statement, "confessed to completing this surgical procedure without medical license." Pennington was arrested for investigation of first-degree aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury. He is being held without bond. The Denver District Attorney's Office will make the final determination if charges will be filed. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Wanda Re: img ... pdf Dear Webby I got some emails with img, some numbers and then .pdf in the subject line. Naturally, I did not open them without asking you first. Are they safe? Thanks Wanda Dear Wanda No, they are NOT safe. Dump them, and dump them out of the trash. Nowadays, anything suspicious looking, dump it.

A college professor asked his class a question. "If Philadelphia is 100 miles from New York and Chicago is 1000 miles from Philadelphia and Los Angles is 2000 miles from Chicago, how old am I?" One student in the back of the class raised his hand and when Called upon said, "Professor you're 44.." The Professor said, "You're absolutely correct, but tell me, how did you arrive at the answer so quickly?" The student said, "You see professor, I have a brother; he's 22, and he's half nuts."

Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Making Rosemary Napkin Rings By ShirleyE [165 Posts, 104 Comments] For a lovely place setting which will also give off a wonderful herbal aroma to get your guests' taste buds going, use a wrap of rosemary around the serviettes (napkins) instead of a traditional napkin ring. Supplies: rosemary sprigs garden raffia or twine scissors hole punch paper Steps: Print out your guests' names. Alternatively you could write them if you prefer. Cut out each name and round off the corners to neaten them. Add a punched hole. Roll up a serviette (napkin) and wrap a rosemary sprig around it. Overlap the ends of the sprig and tie with raffia or string. Thread the name tag onto the raffia and make a final knot. Trim the ends of the raffia and arrange your setting.
If you dont have raffia, you can use the colorful, beaded pony-tail rubber bands. They are usually 25 / $ at the Dollar store and indefinitely reusable. No panic when grampa cančt open the knots on the raffia. Have FUN! DearWebby
Mama bear chases motorists in Yellowstone National Park
____________________________________________________ >From Wendy A retired older couple returned to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they had been interested in to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde in a mini skirt and a halter top. The old man was visibly upset. He spoke to the salesman sharply, "Young man, I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $55,000 asking price. Yet I just overheard you close the deal for $45,000 to the lovely young lady there. And if I remember right, you had insisted there was no way you could discount this model." The salesman took a deep breath, cleared his throat and reached for a large glass of water. "Well, what can I tell you? She had the cash ready, didn't need any financing help, and, Sir, just look at her, how could I resist?", replied the grinning salesman sheepishly. Just then the young woman approached the senior couple and gave the car keys to the old man. "There you go," she said. "I told you I could get that schmuck to lower the price. See you later Dad, Happy Father's day." ___________________________________________________
A woman breaks into what she thought was an abandoned house only to get the shock of her life.
A commercial property owner has three shops in a row, all for rent. The first prospective lessee shows up, and says he wants to rent the shop on the left. The owner says, "Fine, what kind of shop do you have?" The guy says, "A menswear shop." The owner tells him he gets free signage, and asks what he wants on the sign. "Menswear," says the man. A second guy comes along and wants to let the right hand shop. When asked he says he wants "Menswear" on his sign. The owner tells him that the lefthand shop will be the same. "No problem," says the man. Finally a third man comes along to rent the middle shop. The owner is most concerned because this guy also has a menswear shop. Rather wearily the owner asks him what he wants on his sign. The guy replies: "Entrance."

Thanks to Ross for this story: A Jewish couple is sitting together on an airplane flying to The Far East. Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces, "Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning and this plane will be going down. Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us that should be able to accommodate our landing. A few minutes later the plane lands safely on the island. After touring the island the captain announced to the passengers that the odds are that we will never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives." Morris turns to his wife and asks, "Esther, did we pay our charity pledge to the Yeshiva yet?" "No, Morris," she responds. Morris smiles and then asks, "Esther, did we pay our United Jewish Appeal pledge?" "Oy, no! I haven't sent the check," she says. Now Morris laughs out loud. "One last thing, Esther. Did you remember to send our Temple Building Fund check this month," he asks? "Oy, Morris, I haven't sent that one, either." says Esther. Now, Morris is practically choking with laughter. Esther asks Morris, “So? What are you laughing about?" Morris answers confidently, "They'll find us."
