As usual...mostly humor, a little politics...and a great quiz fer those over 50...

Well here be a Head-Line which will definately get the Chief's attention as he's a very avid Green Bay supporter...something akin to an "Athletic Supporter"....

Quarterback for the Packers...

In a news conference Deanna Favre announced she will be the starting QB for the Packers this coming Sunday.

Deanna asserts that she is qualified to be starting QB because she has spent the past 16 years married to Brett while he played QB for the Packers. During this period of time she became familiar with the definition of a corner blitz, and is now completely comfortable with other terminology of the Packers offense. A survey of Packers fans shows that 50% of those polled supported the move.

Does this sound idiotic and unbelievable to you? Well, Hillary Clinton makes the same claims as to why she is qualified to be President and 50% of democrats polled agreed. She has never run a City, County, or State.

When told Hillary Clinton has experience because she has 8 years in the white house,

Dick Morris stated "so has the pastry chef".

This may be old...but it's still my favorite Bumper Sticker....


A Girl at the Beach....

A Couple lived near the ocean and used to walk the
beach a lot. One summer they noticed a girl who was at
the beach almost every day. She wasn't unusual, nor
was the travel bag she carried, except for one thing;
she would approach people who were sitting on the
beach, glance around furtively,then speak to them.

Generally, the people would respond negatively and she
would wander off. B ut occasionally someone would nod
and there would be a quick exchange of money and
something she carried in her bag.

The couple assumed that she was selling drugs and
debated calling the cops, but since they didn't know
for sure, they just continued to watch her.

After a couple of weeks the wife said, "Honey, have
you ever noticed that she only goes up to people with
boom boxes and other electronic devices?"

He hadn't -- and said so.

Then she said, "Tomorrow I want you to get a towel and
our big radio and go lie out on t he beach. Then we can
find out what she's really doing."

Well, the plan went off without a hitch and the wife
was almost hopping up & down with anticipation when
she saw the girl talk to her husband and then leave.

The man then walked up the beach and met his wife at
the road.

"Well, Is she selling drugs?" she asked excitedly.

"No, she's not," he said, enjoying this probably more
than he should have. "...and her name is Cindy by the way." he added...

"Well, what is it then? What does she do ?" his wife
fairly shrieked.

The man grinned and said, "She's a battery

"Batteries?" cried the wife.

"Yes ..." he replied -


OOOOH - You're gonna dislike me for this - but it will
make your day !!! and I bet some a y'all will copy and paste it inta yur blog's....




She sells "C" cells by the seashore


During these serious times, people of all faiths should remember these four religious truths:

1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as God's chosen people.

2. Jews do not recognize Jesus as the Messiah.

3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world.

4. Baptists do not recognize each other at Hooters

...and this is why I was NEVER late fer school...and we had a small 68 year old Nun drivin the school bus...


*Computer Error* ID ten T

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Bob the computer guy, to come over. Bob clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a minimum service call.
As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that, in case I need to fix it again?"

The computer guy grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"

"No," I replied.

"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."

So I wrote out.... I D 1 0 T

I used to like Bob!

...and...along with Dick Morris's "Pastry Chef" remark.... think about this here prophetic street sign from North Carolina when y'all get ready to vote....
