==================== http://www.ThievingJoker.net ==================== The award goes to 47 students taking the third-year statistics course
at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada, who all handed
in the same paper for a pre-Christmas assignment, each apparently
believing that only they would be clever enough to have found it
somewhere for copying. They will all fail the course and may be
suspended.

Bonehead award three goes to a Chinese ship captain, Captain Zheng,
who narrowly missed two head-on collisions with other ships while he
steered his highly explosive tanker, holding 30,000 tons of aviation
fuel, up the English Channel in the WRONG direction, WITHOUT a map.

The French coast guard steered him to Dover whey they said they hoped
he would buy some maps.

He said he never sailed the English Channel before, and without the
maps, he didn't know where he was supposed to position his tanker.

Bonehead award four goes to two South African men who tried to pass
themselves off as real attorneys in a South African courtroom where
they were representing a man charged with assault. Apparently they
thought they had found a way to make some good money.

But their plan fell apart when they referred to the judge as "your
majesty," instead of "your honor," and when they asked the judge what
he meant by "previous convictions."

They've been arrested and will not be allowed to represent themselves
at their own trial.

A Wellington, New Zealand, city councilor will probably keep his
computer behind a brick wall when he uses it ever since the CD ROM
exploded out of the family computer, flying more than 6 feet (2
meters) across the room.

"It sounded just like a .22 (rifle). The front of the CD drive blew
out and the CD came out after it."

Turns out that excessive vibrations caused by minute cracks and heat
in a CD, turning at 48x (7,200 kps) can cause such an explosion.

Someone in our neighborhood put a huge sofa out by the curb for trash
collection. Since it was in good shape, many motorists slowed down for
a look. But when they saw how enormous it was, they'd leave.

Eventually a compact car pulled up, and two men got out. "This I've
got to see," I thought.

They removed the cushions, turned the sofa upside down, and shook it
hard. Then they picked up all the coins that tumbled out and drove off.


Last New Year's Eve, a lady stood up at the local pub and
said that it was time to get ready for the celebrations.

At the stroke of midnight, she wanted every husband to be
standing next to the one person who made his life worth
living.

Well, it was kind of embarrassing. The bartender was almost
crushed to death.


*------------- Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes ---------------*

A group of American tourists were being guided  through an
ancient castle in Europe.

"This place," the guide told them, "is 600 years old.  Not
a stone in it has been touched, nothing altered, nothing
replaced in all those years."

"Wow," said one woman dryly, "they must have the same land-
lord I have."

There was a small town nestled in a valley which
was powered
by a dam. One day, the dam broke and flooded the
valley.
Naturally everyone headed for higher ground. Once
everyone
reached higher ground, they began scanning the
area for
people or animals who needed help.

After a few hours of looking it seemed that every
one was
safe, except that there was this little straw hat
that would
bob down stream about a 50 yards and then bob
back up stream
50 yards. It would then move to the side and bob
down stream
and then back up stream... It kept repeating
this.

Nobody could figure out why it was doing this.
After awhile
of pondering this, a young boy recalled his
Granddad saying
that come hell or high water he was going to get
the lawn
mowed.



"You know those shows where people can call in
and vote on
different issues? Did you ever notice there's
always like
18 percent that say 'I don't know'? It costs 90
cents to call
up and vote--and they're voting 'I don't know.'

"Honey, I feel very strongly about this. Give me
the phone.
(Into phone)... 'I DON'T KNOW!' (Hangs up looking
proud.)

"Sometimes you have to stand up for what you
believe you're
not sure about."
     ---Andy Rooney


A new preacher had just begun his sermon. He was
a little
nervous and about ten minutes into the talk his
mind went
blank. He remembered some advice they gave him in
seminary
school for when a situation like this arose --
repeat your
last point. Often this will help you remember
what should
come next. So he gave it a try.

"Behold, I come quickly," he said. Still his mind
was blank.
So he tried again, "Behold, I come quickly!"
Still nothing.

He tried once more, this time with so much
vehemence that he
tripped over his microphone wire and fell off the
stage,
right into the lap of a little old lady in the
front row.

The young preacher was very embarrassed and tried
to
apologize, and the woman replied, "That's all
right, young
man. It was my fault...I should have gotten out
of the way.
You told me three times you were coming!"


After a young couple brought their new baby home,
the wife
suggested that her husband should try his hand at
changing
diapers.

"I'm busy," he said. "I'll do the next one."

The next time came around and she asked again.
The husband
narrowed his eyes as he looked at his wife. "I
didn't mean the
next diaper. I meant the next baby."

Kelly Davies, 23, a resident of Las Vegas, was visiting her in-laws in Los Angeles, and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick up some groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of her head. One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned and walked over to the car. He noticed that Kelly's eyes were now open, and she looked -- very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Kelly replied that she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains in for over an hour.

The man called the paramedics who broke into the car because the doors were locked and Kelly refused to remove her hands from her head. When they finally got in, they found that Kelly had a wad of bread dough on the back of her head.

A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was, she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She had initially passed out, but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour until someone noticed and came to her aid.

And, yes, Kelly is a blonde.



"Where to Place Them"

Take the prospective employees you are trying to place and
put them  in a room with only a table and two chairs. Leave
them alone for two  hours, without any instruction. At the
end of that time, go back and  see what they are doing.

 If they have taken the table apart, put them in Engineering.

 If they are counting the butts in the ashtray, assign them to Finance.

 If they are waving their arms and talking out loud, send them to
Consulting.

 If they are talking to the chairs, Personnel is a good spot for them.

 If they are wearing green sunglasses and need a haircut, Computer
Information Systems is their niche.

 If the room has a sweaty odour, perhaps they're destined for the Help Desk.

 If they mention what a good price we got for the table and chairs,
put them into Purchasing.

If they mention that hardwood furniture DOES NOT come from
rainforests, Public Relations would suit them well.

If they are sleeping, they are Management material.

If they are writing up the experience, send them to the
Technical Documents team.

If they don't even look up when you enter the room, assign
them to Security.

 If they try to tell you it's not as bad as it looks, send them to Marketing.


Collards is green, my dog's name is Blue
and I'm so lucky to have a sweet thang like you.

Yore hair is like cornsilk a-flapping in the breeze.
Softer than Blue' and without all those fleas

You move like the bass, which excite me in May.
You ain't got no scales but I luv you anyway.

Yo're as satisfy'n as okry jist a-fry'n in the pan.
Yo're as fragrant as "snuff" right out of the can.

You have some'a yore teeth, for which I am proud;
I hold my head high when we're in a crowd.

On special occasions, when you shave under yore arms,
well, I'm in hawg heaven, and awed by yore charms.

Still them fellers at work, they all want to know,
what I did to deserve such a purdy, young doe.

Like a good roll of duct tape yo're there fer yore man,
to patch up life's troubles and fix what you can.

Yo're as cute as a junebug a-buzzin' overhead.
You ain't mean like those far ants I found in my bed.

Cut from the best cloth like a plaid flannel shirt,
you spark up my life more than a fresh load of dirt.

When you hold me real tight like a padded gunrack,
my life is complete; Ain't nuttin' I lack.

Yore complexion, it's perfection, like the best vinyl sidin'.
Despite all the years, yore age, it keeps hidin'.

Me 'n' you's like a Moon Pie with a RC cold drank,
we go together like a skunk goes with stank.

Some men, they buy chocolate for Valentine's Day;
They git it at Wal-Mart, it's romantic that way.

Some men git roses on that special day
from the cooler at Kroger. "That's impressive," I say.

Some men buy fine diamonds from a flea market booth.
"Diamonds are forever," they explain, suave and couth.

But for this man, honey, these won't do.
Cause yor'e too special, you sweet thang you.

I got you a gift, without taste nor odor,
more useful than diamonds...... IT'S A NEW TROLL'N MOTOR !!


One night in Paris, an American tourist dropped into a
sidewalk cafe late one night and, after a couple of
drinks, realized he was the last person in the bar
except for a chap sleeping at one of the tables.

The man called the proprietor over and asked for his
bill.

"Would monsieur care for another drink?" asked the
Frenchman.

"No thanks, I imagine you want to close up. Why don't
you send that other fellow home?"

"Well, I should," said the other. Then, with Gallic
logic, he added, "But each time I wake him up he asks
for the bill and pays it again."
