    HELPFUL INFORMATION

    For those of you who have children, are anticipating children, or have grandchildren, please note the following that a mother in
    Austin, Texas learned from her children:

    A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. foot
    house 4" deep.

    If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with
    roller blades, they can ignite.

    A 3-year-old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowdedarestaurant.

    If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a superman cape.

    A ceiling fan is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20' by 20' room.

    You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on.
    When using the ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit.

    A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way. The glass in windows (even double pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

    When you hear the toilet flush and the words "Uh-oh", it's already too late.

    Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

    A six year old can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year-old man says they can only do it in the movies.

    A magnifying glass can start a fire even on an overcast day.

    A Lego block will pass through the digestive tract of a four year old.

    Play Dough and Microwave should never be used in the same sentence.

    Super glue is forever.

    No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool, you still can't walk on water.

    Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

    VCR's do not eject PB&J sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

    Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

    Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

    You probably do not want to know what that odor is.

    Always look in the oven before you turn it on.

    Plastic toys do not like ovens.

    The fire department in Austin has a 5 minute response time.

    The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earth worms dizzy. It will, however, make cats dizzy.

    Earth worms will stick to the drum sides of a hot dryer.

    Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

    Ol'val.

    That last one evoked some interesting memories, RC ...


    As the jetliner was taxiing down the tarmac, it abruptly stopped and returned to the gate. After waiting over an hour, it finally took off. When a concerned passenger asked the flight attendant what had happened, she answered that the pilot had been bothered by a noise he heard in the engine. "It took us an hour to find another pilot."

    Jean-Paul Sartre is sitting at a French cafe, revising his draft of Being and Nothingness. He says to the waitress, "I'd like a cup of coffee, please, with no cream." The waitress replies, "I'm sorry, monsieur, but we're out of cream. How about with no milk?"

    An engineer, an experimental physicist, a theoretical physicist, and a philosopher were hiking through the hills of Scotland.
    Cresting the top of one hill, they see, on top of the next, a black sheep. The engineer says: "What do you know, the sheep in Scotland are black." "Well, *some* of the sheep in Scotland are black," replies the experimental physicist. The theoretical physicist considers this for a moment and says "Well, at least one of the sheep in Scotland is black." "Well," the philosopher responds, "on one side, anyway."

    Easter humor

    A woman walks into a vet's waiting room. She's dragging a wet rabbit on a leash. The rabbit does not want to be there. "Sit, Fluffy," she says.

    Fluffy glares at her, and sopping wet, jumps up on another customer's lap, getting water all over him.

    "I said sit, now there's a good Fluffy,"
    says the woman, slightly embarrassed. Fluffy quite miserable and perhaps feeling rebellious, squats in the middle of the room and urinates.

    The woman, mortally embarrassed, shouts, "Darn it Fluffy, will you be good?!"

    Fluffy then starts a fight with a Doberman and pursues it out of theoffice. As the woman leaves to go after it, she turns to the rest of the flabbergasted customers and says,
    "Pardon me. I've just washed my hare, and can't do a thing with it!"

    To the humourous Shar Kida

    A man has been left alone in a hospital room for the past three hours. Finally the mans' patience is rewarded with a key locking the door. The man asks:
    "What's wrong?"
    "Mr Smith, we're sorry for the delay, but it took us a while to figure out what was wrong with you."
    And what is wrong with me?"
    "You have E.D.K.T.M."
    Smith paused. "What's that?"
    "Every Disease Known To Man."
    Mr Smith was shocked to say the least.
    "W-w-w-w-w-what can be done about that?"
    "Well we're starting you on a diet of pancakes and pizza."
    "How the hell can that save me?"
    "It can't, but it's the only food we can slide under the door."

    A TRUE STORY: This guy goes into a bank and hands the teller a note demanding cash. She complies and hands over what she's got in her drawer, he grabs the money and runs out.
    Only problem is the note he gave her was written on his own personal stationary including his name, adress, and phone number.
    The cops were waiting for him at his house a half mile away.
    THE PERFECT CRIME!

    Another true story:
    A guy walks into the bank and pushes a previously written note to the teller, which says:"This is a stick-up, I've got a gun. Put all the money in a paper bag."
    The teller writes something on a piece of paper and pushes it back at the robber. The note says:"I don't have a paper bag." The robber gets frustrated and leaves the bank.

    [For MacTusken]

    They tell of the young Scotsman who left home and moved into his own flat. After a few weeks his mother phones to find out how he is doing. "What are your neighbours like?" she asks.

    "Well, they are a bit strange, actually," says the young man. "On one side there is a man who keeps banging his head against the wall, and on the other side there is a woman who just cries and moans."

    "I would just keep to myself if I were you," advises his mam.

    "Och, I do," replies the son. "I just stay in my room all day and play my bagpipes."

    This patient goes to the doctor to get a prescription, which the doctor writes out in the usual illegible handwriting. Seems the patient, having put it into his pocket, forgot to have it filled.

    Every morning for two years he showed it to the conductor as a railway pass. Twice it got him into the movies, once into the baseball park, once into the symphony. At work he got a raise by showing it as a note from his boss.

    One day he misplaced it. His daughter picked it up, played it on the piano, and won a scholarship to the Faculty of Music.


    [and some more definitions ...]

    Procrastinator: Someone who puts off till tomorrow the things already put off till today.

    Fame: When you dominate the conversation and you are not there.

    Adult Education: Something that will continue as long as kids have homework.

    Spongecake: Dessert made of ingredients borrowed from the neighbours.

    Narcissist: A person who is always getting themselves esteemed up.

    Vacation: Spending thousands of dollars to see what rain looks like in different parts of the world.

    Mother: Someone who thinks the girls who go after her son are forward and the ones who do not are stupid.

    Bachelor: A person who does not have to leave a party just as he is beginning to have a good time.

    Truth: It may be stranger than fiction, but is certainly not as popular.

    [From J Scott Homan]

    I have been trying to get into shape. I do 20 sit-ups each morning. That may not sound like a lot, but you can only hit that snooze button so many times.


    [From The Wall Street Journal]

    I'm writing this letter,
    Quite frankly, to say
    I abhorred the column
    You wrote yesterday!
    It was weak and insipid
    And words synonymous --
    In short, it lacked courage!
    Yours truly, Anonymous.

    A flight instructor tells of the student of his who was having real trouble landing the plane, and specifically judging how close he should be to the ground before pulling up the nose of the aircraft.

    Strangely enough, during the first night lesson, the student landed perfectly. Each time, just as the flight instructor thought he would have to take over, the student would pull back on the stick and make a beautiful landing.

    Curious, the instructor finally asked what visual reference the student was using. Explained the student: "I just aim straight for the end-of-the-runway lights. Then I wait. When you stiffen in your seat, I pull the plane up and land."

    I cannot remember who said this, but...

    "Stand on any street corner. Close your eyes and reach out your hand. You are sure to touch a schmuck."

    And if that doesn't catch your fancy, how about teaching your favorite Jedi or X-Wing pilot the ancient art of naked hula dancing?

    Dear Joan:

    First, I want to emphasise that no one in either car was hurt.

    ... So why, you wonder, a letter after all these years? Well, I am writing my autobiography, and I am just at the part concerning our affair ...

    Dear Irving:
    Remember the old vase my Aunt Julia left me that you broke at my party? You wanted to reimburse me, and I said, "How about a couple of hundred bucks?" But you thought that was too much and insisted I get an appraisal. Well, I hope you are sitting down, because the museum's curator of 12th century art ...

    Dear Thelma:
    I have decided to write this because I have always respected you and have always believed that you would expect nothing less from me than complete honesty ...

    In response to your letter concerning pension cheques not received by you, our records indicate that you are deceased ...

    A millionaire goes to a hospital to hand out large sums of money to certain patents. A nurse shows him around.
    Lord Riche: And what's wrong with you?
    Patent 1: I need a new kidney.
    Lord Riche writes out a million dollar cheque.
    Lord Riche: And what's wrong with you?
    Patent 2: I need a new lung.
    Riche writes another cheque out for a million.
    Nurse: There's one more patent that we would like you to see.
    The nurse takes him to a single room, far from the other patents.
    Lord Riche: Well?
    Nurse: He's on the pillow.
    Lord Riche goes to the bed. There on the pillow lies a single small white tooth.
    Lord Riche is appalled.
    Lord Riche: Is that... I mean... that's all that's left of him?
    Nurse: Yes. And it gets worse.
    Lord Riche: Worse! He's just a tooth. How could it get any worse for him.
    Nurse: He needs to be taken out tomorrow.
