Workers at a Romanian clothes factory are to receive their Christmas bonus in
buttons and zippers instead of money.
The 1,000 employees at the Modexim
factory have been told by managers there's not enough funds to pay out
the annual bonuses. Instead, each worker will get two bags filled with
buttons, zippers and a 2 feet of elastic.
One worker, Ian Pavelescu, told
a local newspaper, "It's nice, but we can't fill Christmas dinner plates
with buttons. I don't even think we could sell them on eBay.
Prostitutes are shocked after a Christmas tree donated to a Dutch city's red
light district was stolen by thieves. The tree, decorated with red lights and
baubles, had only been standing for one day before it disappeared.
police spokesman commented, "Maybe the thief was an angry client."
prostitutes who work in the district said they were shocked.
"Why steal a
Christmas tree? It has no value and to us it made the district look more
charming," one told the paper.

There are currently 78 people named S. Claus
living in the U.S. and one Kriss Kringle.
An announcement from Santa:
Dear Good Little Boy or Girl,
to inform you that, effective immediately, I will no longer be able to serve
Southern United States on Christmas Eve.
Due to the overwhelming
current population of the earth, my contract was renegotiated by North
American Fairies and Elves Local 209. I now serve only certain areas of
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, New England and Michigan.
I'm certain that your children will be in good hands with your local
replacement who happens to be my third cousin, Bubba Claus.
of the family is from the South Pole. He shares my goal of delivering toys to
all the good boys and girls; however, there are a few differences between
Differences such as:
1. There is no danger of a Grinch
stealing your presents from Bubba Claus. He has a gun rack on his sleigh and
a bumper sticker that reads: "These toys insured by Smith
2. Instead of milk and cookies, Bubba Claus prefers
that children leave a RC cola and pork rinds [or a moon pie] on the
fireplace. And Bubba doesn't smoke a pipe. He dips a little snuff though, so
please have an empty spit can handy.
3. Bubba Claus' sleigh is pulled by
floppy-eared, flying' coon dogs instead of reindeer. I made the mistake of
loaning him a couple of my reindeer one time, and Blitzen's head
now overlooks Bubba's fireplace.
4. You won't hear "On Comet, on
Cupid, on Donner and Blitzen..." when Bubba Claus arrives. Instead, you'll
hear, "On Earnhardt, on Wallace, on Martin and Lamonte. On Rudd, on
Jarrett, on Elliott and Petty."
5. "Ho, ho, ho!" has been replaced by
6. As required by Southern highway laws, Bubba Claus'
sleigh does have a Yosemite Sam safety triangle on the back with the words
"Back off." The last I heard it also had other decorations on the
sleigh back as well.
One is Ford or Chevy logo with lights that race
through the letters and the other is a caricature of me (Santa
Claus) going wee wee on the Tooth Fairy.
7. The usual Christmas movie
classics such as "Miracle on 34th Street" and "It's a Wonderful Life" will
not be shown in your negotiated viewing area.
Instead, you'll see
"Boss Hogg Saves Christmas" and "Smokey and the Bandit IV" featuring Burt
Reynolds as Bubba Claus and dozens of state patrol cars crashing into each
8. Bubba Claus doesn't wear a belt. If I were you, I'd
make sure you, the wife, and the kids turn the other way when he bends
over to put presents under the tree.
9. And finally, lovely Christmas
songs have been sung about me like "Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer" and Bing
Crosby's "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town." This year songs about
Bubba Claus will be played on all the AM radio stations in the South.
Those song titles will be Mark Chesnutt's "Bubba Claus Shot the Jukebox";
Cledus T. Judd's "All I Want for Christmas Is My Woman and a Six Pack," and
Hank Williams Jr.'s "If You Don't Like Bubba Claus, You Can Shove

THE TURING TEST by David Joerg
IN 1950, the British mathematician Alan
M. Turing proposed a simple test to determine whether or not a computer
could think as humans do. In this ingenious exercise, a human
"interrogator" would question a subject in a remote location for five
minutes. Once a computer placed in the remote location were able to fool its
interrogator and pass as human, that computer will have achieved human
sentience. Keep in mind Turing was used to the wooden, stultifying
conversation patterns of British humans.
Turing predicted that by
the year 2000 a computer would exist that could pass his test and pass
itself off as human. Sick of hearing such smug predictions from the deceased
British number-cruncher, we tested Dr. Turing's test on a Dell PowerEdge
6400 with a 100MHz front side bus and 32KB level 1 cache running Microsoft
Windows 2000 Server.
Section I: Easy Questions
MH: Hello. I'm
going to ask you a few simple questions. State your name please.
Dell PowerEdge: Simon III. MH: Your full name? Dell: Max Felix
John Simon III. MH: Where are you from? Dell: I'm from... Belize.
MH: Have any family? Dell: No. MH: What happened to them?
Dell: ...Earthquake. MH: Sorry to hear. What do you do for a living?
Dell: Manufacturing. MH: You mean you work in a factory, or you're a
supervisor? Dell: Yes.
Section II: Psychology
take out the pictures we emailed to you. What does the first one look
like to you? Dell: It looks like an ink splotch. MH: No, look deep
into it, let your imagination run wild. Dell: Two ink splotches. MH:
Deeper, wilder. Dell: Actually, four ink splotches.
MH: Maybe you
don't understand. Look at these pictures, and then tell me what they
remind you of. You know, like a butterfly, or a face. Try the second
one. Dell: Butterfly? MH: Good! Now try the third. Dell:
Section III: Psychology Again
MH: Let's play a
little game. I'm going to say a word, and you say the next word that
comes into your mind. Dell: Sounds easy. MH: Okay, here we go. "Dog."
Dell: Any member of a set of species including Canis familiaris
or domesticated... MH: No, no, no. I say a word, then you say what it makes
you think of. Dell: Oh, I get it. Try me again. MH:
Electricity. Dell: Food. MH: "Food"?
Dell: That's what I
thought of. Wouldn't it be cool if elec- tricity were not a dangerous
threat to living tissue, but instead a filling meal? Of course, that's
not the case for humans like us.
Section IV: Nap
MH: Are you a computer? Dell: Nope. MH: You'd be
surprised how many fall for that one. Dell: Not me.
MH: What's fifty-six times thirty-three? Dell: One thousand
eight hundred forty-eight. MH: You're pretty fast! Dell: Those are my
favorite numbers. MH: All right, how about five thousand and two divided by
sixty-one? Dell: Eighty-two. MH: Right again! Are you some
sort of math whiz? Dell: Those are... more of my favorite numbers.
A man bought several acres of wasteland and within a year, turned it into a

man and God work together."

FOUR-DAY WEEKS FOR SCHOOLS CONSIDERED
Yet another private
school says it may opt for a four-day week, starting soon. The Pembroke
Pines (Fla.) Charter High School has become the latest school in the United
States to consider what many say is a cost-saving adjustment of the
traditional five-day school week. Published reports say that although the
school has a great deal of autonomy, it is still bound by many state
laws. It could not, for example, arbitrarily eliminate summer school. Under
a proposed plan the school would go to six classes a day, each lasting for
65 minutes. The school now offers a mixture of 100-minute classes and
50-minute classes on a regular five-day-a-week basis. Some teachers have
noted that the 100 minute classes are far too long and it's difficult to
keep students' attention for that length of time, anyway. Many schools across
the nation have opted for four-day-a-week schedules. In bad weather states,
that schedule decreases the costs of school bus operations and heating
'MY MOMMIE IS IN THAT BURNING HOUSE!'
Pittsburgh medics got more than they bargained for this week. The pair was
on the way to breakfast at a restaurant when suddenly a group of kids ran
into the street, trying to stop the ambulance. What the rescue workers
dis- covered was a house on fire and the frantic cries of one child:
"Mommie is inside!" In a valiant effort, after calling for back-up help,
the pair rushed two blocks to the burning house. Then, responding to the
urging of the children, ran into the burning building -- even though they
had little fire training. Inside they found not only the mother, but four
other children, an older man and a dog. All were in bad shape, suffering
from smoke inhalation. All were saved ... except for the dog, which
could not be revived. One of the rescue workers told the Pittsburgh
Post-Gazette that the entire process was not the usual thing for him. "It
was life or death," he noted. The fire eventually spread to two surrounding
buildings, caused an estimated $55,000 damage and went to four alarms.
GROUP DEBATES TRACKING OF KIDS
Child welfare agencies in
part of South Carolina are working on a way to more effectively track
children in their care. According to the Salisbury Post newspaper, a special
committee has been set to study whether it would be feasible to set up a
special tracking network to keep tabs on minors being kept in a variety of
foster care, half-way and other facilities. A "blue ribbon panel" has been
drawn from a wide range of social service agencies. At present, as many as
20 students attending the 920-student Salisbury High School are in state
care. One expert notes that it seems that a "disproportionate number of
students from group homes are enrolled in local schools." The publication
says that many feel that the county's social services department should do
the record-keeping paper- work but that the information should not be made

******************************************** Santa Is A Man
precisely because Christmas is an "organized, warm, fuzzy, nurturing social
deal" that Santa has to be a man. Delegation... that's the key. Just imagine
if a woman was trying to delegate all of those tasks and obligations to
her underlings. Christmas would be as ambiguous as the spring equinox.
Nobody would know what day of the year we were going to celebrate it
It takes a man to organize a commercial event as huge
as Christmas. What with the ads, the parades, the football, and (usually)
the basketball, the sheer immensity of the task would overwhelm most females.
We'd have to plan football schedules around lunch instead of the other way
around. Or worse yet... there might not be any football at all. (Shudder)
That's a scary thought.
If Santa was a female, the toys might never be
delivered. It would take a she Santa until New Year's Eve to get
dressed (for the third time) and out of the bathroom. And just
try harnessing those reindeer with freshly painted nails. Never happen.
Once she got underway, she'd be too busy talking on the cell phone to her
girl friends to get all the way around the world to every girl and boy's
house in a single year, let alone a single night.
If Santa was female,
the whole idea of gift giving would be unrecognizable. Everybody would get
socks, or ties, or after shave, or fuzzy slippers every year. There would
be none of the noise making, shoot 'em up, battery operated windfalls that
kids love. Bicycles would all come complete with helmets and knee pads. And
training wheels so nobody could get hurt. Toy soldiers would be replaced by
books on improving one's self esteem. Christmas just wouldn't be
I'll tell you another reason why Santa has to be a man
(AND a football fan). Look at the names of his reindeer... Dasher, Comet,
Blitzen... If those aren't male names for football players, than I'm an elf.
Santa Claus is a woman....
BECAUSE A MAN COULDN'T MEET THE DEMANDS OF THE
JOB ... I think Santa Claus is a woman....
I hate to be the one to
defy sacred myth, but I believe he's a she.
Think about it. Christmas
is a big, organized, warm, fuzzy, nurturing social deal, and I have a
tough time believing a guy could possibly pull it all off!
starters, the vast majority of men don't even think about selecting gifts
until Christmas Eve. It's as if they are all frozen in some kind
of Ebenezerian Time Warp until 3 p.m. on Dec. 24th, when they - with
amazing calm call other errant men and plan for a last-minute shopping spree.
Once at the mall, they always seem surprised to find only Ronco products,
socket wrench sets, and mood rings left on the shelves. (You might
think this would send them into a fit of panic and guilt, but my husband
tells me it's an enormous relief because it lessens the 11th
hour decision-making burden.)
On this count alone, I'm convinced Santa
is a woman. Surely, if he were a man, everyone in the universe would wake
up Christmas morning to find a rotating musical Chia Pet under the tree,
still in the bag.
Another problem for a he-Santa would be getting
there. First of all, there would be no reindeer because they would all
be dead, gutted and strapped on to the rear bumper of the sleigh amid
wide-eyed, desperate claims that buck season had been extended. Blitzen's
rack would already be on the way to the taxidermist.
Even if the male
Santa DID have reindeer, he'd still have transportation problems because he
would inevitably get lost up there in the snow andclouds that there
would be unavoidable delays in the chimney, where the Bob Vila-like Santa
would stop to inspect and repoint bricks in the flue. He would also need
to check for carbon monoxide fumes in every gas fireplace, and get under
every Christmas tree that is crooked to straighten it to a perfectly
upright 90-degree angle.
Other reasons why Santa can't possibly be a
man: *Men can't pack a bag. *Men would rather be dead than caught wearing
red velvet. *Men would feel their masculinity is threatened...having to be
seen with all those elves. *Men don't answer their mail. *Men would
refuse to allow their physique to be described even in jest as anything
remotely resembling a "bowlful of jelly." *Men aren't interested in
stockings unless somebody's wearing them. *Having to do the Ho Ho Ho thing
would seriously inhibit their ability to pick up women. *Finally, being
responsible for Christmas would require a commitment.

that other mythical holiday characters are men......... Father Time shows up

It was the day after Christmas at a church in San Francisco. The pastor of
the church was looking over the crèche when he noticed that the baby Jesus
was missing from among the figures.
He hurried outside and saw Little
Johnny with a red wagon, and in the wagon was the figure of the
little infant Jesus.
So he walked up to Little Johnny and said, "Well,
where did you get your passenger, my fine friend?"
replied, "I got Him at church."
"And why did you take Him?" asked the
Little Johnny said, "Well, about a week before Christmas I
prayed to the little Lord Jesus and I told Him if He would bring me a red
wagon for Christmas I would give Him a ride around the block in it, and
that's what I'm doing."
"I read in an encyclopedia that the Romans used to celebrate something called
Saturnalia around December 25th. They used to give each other presents,
