Today's Bonehead Award: Teens father tenderizes and holds peeping Tom for police _______________________________________________ If you like the Humor Letter, please vote! _______________________________________________ The trouble with facts is that there are so many of them. --- Samuel McChord Crothers Feeling gratitude without expressing it is like wrapping a gift and not giving it. --- William Arthur Ward _______________________________________________ An Irishman by the name of Paul McLean moves into a tiny hamlet in County Kerry, walks into the pub and promptly orders three beers. The bartender raises his eyebrows, but serves the man three beers, which he drinks quietly at a table, alone. An hour later, the man has finished the three beers and orders three more. This happens yet again. The next evening the man again orders and drinks three beers at a time, several times. Soon the entire town is whispering about the Man Who Orders Three Beers. Finally, a week later, the bartender broaches the subject on behalf of the town. "I don't mean to pry, but folks around here are wondering why you always order three beers." "'Tis odd, isn't it?" the man replies. "You see, I have two brothers, and one went to America, and the other to Australia. We promised each other that we would always order an extra two beers whenever we drank as a way of keeping up the family bond." The bartender and the whole town was pleased with this answer, and soon the Man Who Orders Three Beers became a local celebrity and source of pride to the hamlet, even to the extent that out-of-towners would come to watch him drink. Then, one day, the man comes in and orders only two beers. The bartender pours them with a heavy heart. This continues for the rest of the evening -- he orders only two beers. Word flies around town. Prayers are offered for the soul of one of the brothers. The next day, the bartender says to the man, "Folks around here, me first of all, want to offer condolences to you for the death of your brother. You know -- the two beers and all..." The man ponders this for a moment, then replies, "You'll be happy to hear that my two brothers are alive and well. It's just that my wife became a baptist and ordered me to stop drinking." ________________________________________________` ____________________________________________________

___________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Mark Lawson, 62, Wichita, Kansas Teens father tenderizes and holds peeping Tom for police A Kansas man who was allegedly looking into a teenage girl's window got a brutal shock when her father took him to the ground. Wichita dad Brad Morgan jumped into action after his teenage daughter told him she heard a noise right outside her bedroom window on the night of Nov. 6. Once outside, the dad says he found a man in the family's backyard, leering into the young girl's room. Things quickly went downhill for the alleged creep, who police identified as 62-year-old Mark Lawson. The suspect is reportedly a neighbor of the family. According to the family, this isn't the first time Lawson was busted creeping around the home, KWCH reported. Previously, the 62-year-old allegedly claimed he was merely looking for his dog. his time, however, Lawson's alleged presence in the backyard was too much. After his daughter told him about the noise, Morgan says he charged into the backyard to find the suspect hovering roughly an inch away from her bedroom window. In Morgan's mind, there was no question about the suspect's motives. I caught him and he was just standing there, so he was about an inch away from my daughter's window, Morgan told KSNW. Morgan confronted the man, and the encounter eventually escalated into a scuffle. The dad says he wrestled the alleged creep to the ground and held him down after a short struggle. It was like a fight, you know, a fight for my life there for a minute, Morgan said. Police arrived 15 minutes later, meaning the suspect could have been long gone had this dad chosen not to act. It didn't take long for officers to place the pinned man under arrest. Lawson was hit with a list of charges, including criminal trespass, aggravated assault, battery, breach of privacy and sexual exploitation of a child. Fortunately for the suspect, this dad didn't come out with a loaded firearm. After being taught a lesson by an angry dad, however, the suspect will hopefully think twice before doing this sort of thing again.
DearWebby's Tech Support Pits From: Ed Re: Foreign Spam Dear Webby, I get loads of spam from around the World every day offering millions of dollars if I send them my personal information. (If I accept two more checks, I'll be richer than Bill Gates!) As soon as I see a foreign country mentioned, I delete it. BUT... is there a way of automatically blocking these sites before they get to my screen? Hating to waste all those electrons, Ed Dear Ed I use MailWasher. MailWasher does a good job of keeping that kind of stuff out, or at least flagging it for deletion. If I had to look at every piece of mail sent to my addresses, I would not get any work done at all. Mailwasher recognizes that kind of crap, and if any slip through, I have a look to see what that mail has, that legitimate mails don't have, and take 30 seconds to make a filter. Some days I look at the pie chart to see which filter has caught the most. It is of course not necesary to check that, but kinda fun. Have FUN! DearWebby

An elderly woman had just returned to her home from an evening worship service and was startled to find an intruder in her house. Catching the man in the act of burglarizing her home, she yelled, "Stop! Acts 2:38!" (Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ so that your sins may be forgiven). As the burglar stopped dead in his tracks, the woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done. Shortly, several officers arrived and took the man into custody. As he was placing the handcuffs on the burglar, one of the officers asked "Why did you just stand there? Was it her a Bible quote ?" "Bible Quote???" replied the burglar. "She said she had an AXE and TWO 38's! ___________________________________________________ Daily tip from Healthy Living Tips To Keep Weight Off I've been slim for about 10 years (of course with a few ups and downs!) and have just realized that there are a lot of things I have been doing over the years automatically to help keep my weight down.

___________________________________________________ Some people's appliances!! A Wales woman in Llanelli, Dyfed had to call emergency services from her mobile phone when her washing machine pinned her against the sink. In a slick move, the machine, running on vibrations, slowly slid across the kitchen floor until it completed its destiny and she was pinned for the count. And what says the washing machine? It wouldn't respond to reporter's questions because it was feeling drained. The machine is not likely to repeat the behavior because it was probably just a cycle it was going through. ___________________________________________________ Pierre from Montreal was in a hotel in Edmonton and phoned room service for some pepper.
