I'm Back !

Due to a recent hospital stay, I have not posted. Fear not, as I feel better and look forward to receiving a hospital bill which I will be unable to pay. I'm sure, however, that Obamacare will gladly pick up the tab.

On a serious note, my thanks to all my Facebook and Blogger friends for their well wishes. I had planned to keep the news within the family, but Sister Jean would have none of that and kept people apprised on Facebook. Both Sister Jean and Brother Kirt were there when I needed them and for that I am thankful.

As for Samantha and Scooter.......well, they're cats and as long as there's food and water, they're happy. Gonna keep it short today but I'm back at it and will have more in the next post.

The News As I See It: A recent security purge by Facebook has unintentionally gotten rid of millions of "likes." Just think... all those wasted hours, wasted.

In New York, a Southwest Airlines pilot was arrested for having a loaded gun hidden in his carry-on bag. The pilot was fired from Southwest and immediately hired by United, so we’re all set now.

Door Dash is a food delivery service testing out a new method of delivery that uses robots to bring you your food. They’re offering it in California and Washington, D.C., right now. You use your app, you order food and a robot in some cases will bring it right to you. It even acts surprised when you answer the door naked. It’s an amazing technology.

Former White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest recently said that former President Obama is genuinely concerned about how things are going in the country. In fact, today there was just a hint of sadness in Obama's eye, as he swam up to the bar to smoke a cigarette and order another beer.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I had a weird dream last night. I dreamed that God sneezed and I didn't know what to say. 2) She wanted to name her new baby boy, Greg. The doctor, who once worked as a Barista at Starbucks wrote down "Grork". 3) I've now reached the age where getting lucky is what happens when I can remember where I put my glasses. 4) I smoke cigars occasionally. I don't know a lot about cigars. Yesterday, at a cigar store, the guy behind the counter says, "What kind of cigars do you want?" I said, "Uhhh...Give me a dozen 'Itsaboys'."  5) I once got into trouble on a date. I didn't open her car door. Instead, I just swam to the surface.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Taurus - April 21st: Minor changes to your driving style allows you to feel like you're a better driver. You're not, but it's the thought that counts. Today should be good for you but I wouldn't eat any seafood. Come to think of it, I wouldn't go near any, either.

Birthdays: Charlotte Brontë, novelist 1816, John Muir, naturalist 1838, Anthony Quinn, actor 1915, Queen Elizabeth II, English Monarch 1926, Tony Romo, football player 1980.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A Greek and Italian were sitting down one day debating who had the superior culture. The Greek says, "We have the Parthenon." The Italian says, "We have the Coliseum."

The Greek says, "We had great Mathematicians." The Italian says, "We had the Roman Empire."

They went on and on, then the Greek says, "We invented sex." The Italian says, "That's true, but it was the Italians who introduced it to women."

An older woman had gained a few pounds. It was most noticeable to her when she squeezed into a pair of her old blue jeans. Wondering if the added weight was noticeable to everyone else, she asked her husband, "Honey, do these jeans make me look like the side of the house?" Her husband replied,"No, dear, not at all. Our house isn't blue."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Two brothers, aged four and six, are talking and the six year old says, "You know, it's about time we started to swear." The four year old says "OK." The six year old says "From now on I'll say 'hell' and you say 'ass.'" The four year old says "OK."

So they go downstairs and their mother says "What would you boys like for breakfast?" The six year old says "Oh what the hell, I'll have corn flakes." WHACK! The kid goes flying across the room.

The mother turns to the four year old and asks "And what would YOU like for breakfast?" The four year old says "I don't know, but you can bet your sweet ass it's not corn flakes."

A Priest was about to finish his tour of duty in the jungle where he has spent years teaching the natives to be civilized and kind to each other when he realizes that the one thing he never taught them was how to speak English.

So he takes the chief for a walk in the forest. He points to a tree and says to the chief, "This is a tree." The chief looks at the tree and grunts, "Tree." The Priest is pleased with the response. They walk a little further and he points to a rock and says, "This is a rock." Hearing this, the chief looks and grunts, "Rock."

The Priest was really getting enthusiastic about the results when he hears a rustling in the bushes. As they peek over the top, he sees a couple of natives in the midst of heavy sexual activity. The Priest is really flustered and quickly responds, "Man riding a bike."

The chief looks at the couple briefly, pulls out his blowgun and kills them both. The Priest goes ballistic and yells at the chief that he has spent years teaching the tribe how to be civilized and be kind to each other, so how could he kill these people in cold blood that way? The chief replied, "That my bike."

That's it for today, my little sweet potatoes. Remember,when the chips are down, the buffalo is empty. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

Odds And Ends - Late Friday Edition

Thoughts: I would never hire a lawyer that makes his own commercials, especially the morons in the "Ticket Clinic" commercials. I don't trust any one, especially politicians, who say "New-kew-lar", It's "New-kle-ar". Tenure be Damned - If you are a shitty teacher, you should drive the school bus.

I see no good reason to jump out a a perfectly good running airplane. I would enjoy seeing the lying, liberal New York Times go bankrupt. I don't go to the Olive Garden and other pasta joints because over-priced pasta is not worth the trouble.

Running in a marathon is stupid. I’m not running anywhere unless someone is chasing me. I no longer fry bacon naked. It's not worth having to tell the story in the emergency room. I would shop more often at Walmart if they guarantee the parking lot would be rid if thugs. My .38 only holds five rounds and I don't reload as fast as I used to.

I'm unsure who is the fattest and most disgusting: Whoopi Goldberg or Rosie O'Donnell. For the liberal Madison Avenue  television commercial writers: Everyone knows what you're up to with your diversive casting, but the local television evening crime news puts it all back into perspective. It's like putting lipstick on a monkey.

Any product advertised on TV for $19.99 is a rip off; Even worse if they double the offer. Most diets that you subscribe to don't work and are overpriced. The best way to lose weight is to eat a healthy diet and learn to push yourself away from the table. And finally, never trust a naked bus driver.....

The News As I See It: After causing a huge controversy, United Airlines now says it will allow any paying passenger to wear leggings. So good news, my Uncle Lester can fly out for Easter after all.

Ford announced it will create 130 new jobs in Michigan. Hillary Clinton asked, "Is one of them president?"

A 20-year-old woman in St. Louis has been banned from Tinder after making hundreds of dollars because her profile said, "Send me $5 and see what happens," The thing is, guys were just giving her $5. Usually, the only thing people give each other on Tinder is crabs.

This Date In History: 1707; The Act of Union joined England and Scotland to form Great Britain. 1931; The Empire State Building opened in New York City. At 102 stories, it would be the world's tallest building for the next 41 years. Click to see the current tallest.

1941; Orson Welles's Citizen Kane, considered by many the greatest film ever made, premiered in New York. 1948; The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea) was established with Kim Il Sung as president. 1960; The Soviet Union shot down an American U-2 reconnaissance plane over Soviet territory.

1967; Elvis Presley married Priscilla Beaulieu. (They divorced in 1973.) 1991; 44-year-old Texas fireballer Nolan Ryan hurled his seventh and final no-hitter in a 3-0 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays. That same day, Oakland's Rickey Henderson broke Lou Brock’s stolen base record.

2003; President Bush made a speech aboard an aircraft carrier proclaiming “major combat operations in Iraq have ended.” 2009; For the first time in 341 years, a woman is appointed as poet laureate of the United Kingdom. Carol Ann Duffy, 53, will take over the post from current poet laureate Andrew Motion.

Picture Of The Day: Never let your girlfriends talk you into getting the "latest style".

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I remember when you could get a dozen eggs, a loaf of bread and a gallon of milk next to nothing. Nowadays, they got those damn security cameras. 2) Man cannot live by bread alone. He also needs a roll of duct tape and a can of WD-40. 3) According to archaeologists, for millions of years Neanderthal man was not fully erect. That's pretty easy to understand considering how ugly Neanderthal woman were. 4) Does anyone need a pen? I just cleaned out all my drawers and it turns out I have ALL of them. 5) I hope I'm the last guy on earth. I want to see if all those women were lying to me.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Aries - April 31st: Don't trust little birdies, most of them tell lies. Love comes in all shapes and sizes. Unfortunately, all the good shapes and sizes are already taken. Bread, lightly cooked and buttered. Today's horoscope was sponsored by Toast.

Birthdays: Joseph Addison, writer 1672, Mary Harris Jones, labor agitator 1830, Calamity Jane, frontier character 1852, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, philosopher 1881, Joseph Heller, writer 1923, Wes Anderson, filmmaker 1969.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A farmer was driving along the road with a load of horse manure. A little boy, playing in front of his house, saw him and called, "What have you got in your truck?" The farmer replied, "Horse manure."

The little boy asked, "What are you going to do with it?" The farmer said, "Put it on strawberries." The little boy said, "You ought to live here. We put sugar and cream on ours."

One night, after watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire", a man and his wife went to bed. The man started getting very frisky, so he asked his wife if she was in the mood.

His wife answered, "Not tonight dear, I have a headache." The man replied, "Is that your final answer?" She said "Yes." The man said, "Ok, then I'd like to phone a friend."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: The ambitious coach of a girls track team gives the squad steroids. The team's performance soars. They win the county and state championship until one day. they are favored to win nationals easily.

Penelope, a 16-year-old hurdler visits her coach and says, "Coach, I have a problem. Hair is starting to grow on my chest." The coach says in a panic, "What? How far down does it go?" She replies, "Down to my balls. That's another thing I want to talk to you about."

A woman with really hairy underarms boards a crowded bus. Unable to find a seat, she settles for hanging onto one of the poles. A drunk man next to her stares at her for three minutes, then tells her, "I love a woman that does aerobics."

The woman replies angrily, "I don't do aerobics!" The drunk man then looks at the woman and says, "Then how did you get your leg up so high?"

That's it for today, my little April fools. Remember,If my body is ever found dead on a jogging trail, just know I was murdered elsewhere and dumped there. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

Intellectual Breakthrough: Sneakers That Order Pizza

Scene: Executives at Pizza Hut are in a think tank to deal with sagging sales. VP John says, "How about two for one sales." VP Mark replies, "Been done." VP Tyrone says, "How about basketball sneakers with a button on the shoe to order pizza?" Whaaa...???

Okay, maybe it didn't go down exactly like that but that's the gist of what happened. Moreover, it's a ruse; it's not true. Yeah, the ad is real, the shoes are real, but the average person will never see the product. It's just a publicity stunt and a stupid one, at that.

In an interview with Ad Age, Pizza Hut VP of advertising, David Daniels, said the company will only be giving away 64 pairs of their new Pie Tops and very few of those will find their way to the general public. Sorry, Basketball Jones......

Most people wouldn't be caught dead in those crappy shoes, but for those who like basketball, it may seem like a good idea. I don't like basketball and I don't buy $200 sneakers.

On the other hand, I'd be interested in a button on my cellphone for ordering a scotch on the rocks. But, that's just me.....

The News As I See It: Disney World has agreed to pay $3.8 million to workers who were making less than minimum wage and had to pay for their own costumes. That works out to around $238 per person, which is almost enough to buy a bottle of water at Disney World.

Hillary Clinton is reportedly still considering a run for mayor of New York City. Weirdly, this time she IS campaigning in Michigan and Wisconsin. Fool me once, right?

In Monroe, Washington, there’s a mystery to be solved. Someone made a very unique donation to the Goodwill store up there — a cooler containing five large bags of marijuana, weighing a total of 60 ounces. Almost four pounds, like $20,000 worth of pot, was left in. They assume it was left in there by mistake. What are the odds a pot smoker would forget he stashed weed in a cooler?

This Date In History: 1603; Queen Elizabeth I died at age 69 after ruling England for more than 40 years. 1882; Robert Koch announced the discovery of the tuberculosis bacillus. 1949; Laurence Olivier's Hamlet became the first British film to win an Oscar.

1958; Rock 'n' roll star Elvis Presley joined the U.S. army for two years. 1989; In one of worst oil spills in recent history, the tanker, Exxon Valdez, ran aground and released 240,000 barrels of oil into Prince William Sound.

1999; NATO begins launching air strikes in an attempt to force Serbia to cease hostilities against ethnic Albanians in Kosovo. 2002; Halle Berry became the first black actress to win a best actress Oscar and Denzel Washington became the second black actor to get the best actor award.

2004; The notorious Bird family's more than half-century stronghold on the nation of Antigua and Barbuda came to an end when Baldwin Spencer won the post of prime minister in the general election.

Picture Of The Day: Pizza Boy.....

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) My body keeps saying, "Go to sleep" and my brain keeps saying, "I wonder what country has the largest population of goats?" 2) Grapefruit juice tastes like orange juice that just found out it has to work on it's day off. 3) I don't want to brag, but I always go to the hottest cashier at Publix and she always checks me out. 4) The Red Cross knocked at my door asking if I could help towards the floods in Pakistan and Yemen. I said I would love to, but my hose only reaches the bottom of the driveway. 5) When I ask my girlfriend if she wants sex, she changes the subject and asks if a bear shits in the woods, like I'm some sort of bear scientist or something.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Aries - March 24th: Congratulations may be in order this week. Much of your body weight tends to be distributed in a specific place - but that may start shifting today. "Saucy" should not be used as a synonym for sweaty.

The crystal ball which I sometimes use for divining fortunes for those like yourself was knocked off the table by my cats and is smashed. I can see bits of your future and they look bloody. But, I can't tell whether it's your blood. Actually, it might not be blood at all, but a red sock. I'm not sure. Get back to me tomorrow.

Birthdays: Georgius Agricola. father of mineralogy 1494, William Morris, designer 1834, John Wesley Powell, geologist and ethnologist 1834, Harry Houdini, American magician and writer 1874, Edward Weston, photographer 1886, Thomas Dewey, politician 1902, Steve McQueen, actor 1930 , Peyton Manning, football player 1976.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: An elderly couple were discussing plans to get married and wanted to iron out any potential problems with their particular properties.

The old woman said, "I want to keep my condominium in my name" The old man replied, "That's fine with me." The woman said, "I also want to keep my Cadillac in my name only." The man said, "That's fine with me."

Then, the old lady said, "I want to have sex six days a week." The old man said, "That's fine with me - put me down for Fridays."

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the director what the criterion was that defined whether or not a patient should be institutionalized.

The Director said, "Well, we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

The visitor said, "Oh, I understand. A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

The Director said, "No, a normal person would just pull the plug. Do you want a room with or without a view?"

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A police officer in Pennsylvania was interviewing an old man who was a witness to a murder. The cop asked, "Did you see what happened?" The old man said, "No but I heard it and I know who did it"

The cop, a bit dubious, said, "What did you hear?" The old man said, "Clip-clop, clip-clop, Bang!, clip-clop, clip-clop." The cop said, "And from that you know what happened?" The old timer said, "Yep, it was an Amish drive-by."

A man and woman were in divorce court awaiting the judge's ruling on the financial and property settlement. The judge said, "Mr Clark, I have reviewed this case very carefully and I've decided to give your wife $750 a week."

Mr Clark said, "That's very fair, your honor, and every now and then, I'll try to give her a few bucks, myself."

That's it for today, my little pizza pies. Remember, today's humor does not reflect the thoughts or opinions of either myself or my cats. Anchovies or jalapenos added to jokes upon request; your mileage may vary; an equal opportunity joke employer; no shoes, no shirt, no jokes: if a rash, redness, irritation, or swelling develops, discontinue use. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

Happy St. Patrick's Day 2017

May the road rise up to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of His hand. (traditional Gaelic blessing)

You're in the middle of a project around the house. You're dirty, hot and sweaty. You have your old work clothes on. You know the outfit, the shorts with the hole in the crotch, an old T-shirt with a stain and an old pair of tennis shoes.

Right in the middle of this great home improvement project you realize you need to run to Home Depot to get something to help complete the job. Depending on your age you do one of the following:

In Your 20's: You stop what you're doing. Shave, take a shower, blow dry your hair, brush your teeth, floss, and put on clean clothes. Check yourself in the mirror and flex. Add a dab of your favorite cologne because you never know, you just might meet some hot chick while standing in the checkout lane. You went to school with the pretty girl running the register.

In Your 30's: You stop what you're doing, put on clean shorts and shirt. Change shoes. You married the hot chick so no need for much else. Wash your hands and comb your hair. Check yourself in the mirror. Still got it. Add a shot of your favorite cologne to cover the smell. The cute girl running the register is the kid sister of someone you went to school with.

In Your 40's: You stop what you're doing. Put on a sweatshirt that's long enough to cover the hole in the crotch of your shorts. Put on different shoes and a hat. Wash your hands. Your bottle of Brut cologne is almost empty so you don't want to waste any of it on a trip to Home Depot. Check yourself in the mirror and do more sucking in than flexing. The spicy young thing running the register is your daughter's age and you feel weird thinking she's spicy.

In Your 50's: You stop what you're doing. Put on a hat, wipe the dirt off your hands onto your shirt. Change shoes because you don't want to get dog shit in your new sports car. Check yourself in the mirror and you swear not to wear that shirt anymore because it makes you look fat. The Cutie running the register smiles when she sees you coming and you think you still have it. Then you remember the hat you have on is from Buddy's Bait Shop and it says, "I Got Worms".

In Your 60's; You stop what you're doing. No need for a hat anymore. Hose the dog shit off your shoes. The mirror was shattered when you were in your 50's. You hope you have underwear on so nothing hangs out the hole in your pants. The girl running the register may be cute, but you don't have your glasses on so you're not sure.

In Your 70's: You stop what you're doing. Wait to go to Home Depot until the drug store has your prescriptions ready too. Don't even notice the dog shit on your shoes. The young thing at the register smiles at you because you remind her of her grandfather.

In Your 80's: You stop what you're doing. Start again. Then stop again. Now you remember you needed to go to Home Depot. Go to Wal-Mart instead and wander around trying to think what it is you're looking for. Fart out loud and you think someone called out your name. You went to school with the old lady who greeted you at the front door.

In Your 90's and beyond: What's a home deep hoe? Something for my garden? Where am I? Who am I? Why am I reading this? Did I send it? Did you? Who farted?

The News As I See It: Rachel Maddow’s much-hyped release of Donald Trump’s 2005 tax returns was considered by many to be a letdown. No one’s been this disappointed by Rachel Maddow since the guy who took her to the prom. The only result of what happened is Rachel Maddow topped Rosie O’Donnell as Donald Trump’s least-favorite lesbian.

Everyone was talking about the big snowstorm that hit New York. In fact, some are said thy experienced a whiteout. Things will even out on St. Patrick’s Day when we'll all experience a blackout.

The blizzard also hit Washington, D.C. You know it’s cold outside when the Washington Monument actually shrinks about 40 feet.

Last weekend, off the coast of Florida, a Carnival Cruise ship almost hit two jet skiers. Today, the captain of the ship apologized and said, "I’ll get them next time."

This Date In History: 1762; The first St. Patrick's Day parade was held in New York City. 1776; British forces evacuated Boston during the Revolutionary War. 1870; Wellesley Female Seminary (later Wellesley College) received its charter from the Massachusetts legislature.

1942; Gen. Douglas MacArthur became supreme commander of Allied forces in the southwest Pacific theater during World War II. 1963; Mount Agung on Bali erupted, killing 1,184 people. 1969; Golda Meir was sworn in as prime minister of Israel.

Picture Of The Day: Happy St. Patrick's Day

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) I spent most of my lifetime earnings on women and booze and squandered the rest. 2) If at first you don't succeed, then try playing second base. 3) I've started slipping an occasional "meow" into everyday conversations with people to see if they're really listening meow to me. 4) I find it amazing that the amount of news that happens in the world every day always fits perfectly in the newspaper.  5) Fidel Castro made a rare appearance on Cuban television. It’s a new show called "Cuba’s Got Talent, but America’s Got Food, Water, Shelter, and Cash.".....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Pisces - March 17th: Deja vu is the feeling that someone's patronised you before (often by telling you what deja vu means). Purple clouds are not usual, nor is red rain. You really must stop pretending that the pictures your niece draws are real.

Birthdays: Tames Bridger, mountain man 1804, Kate Greenaway, illustrator and watercolorist 1846, Gloria Swanson, actress 1899, Bayard Rustin, civil rights activist 1912, Nat "King" Cole, singer 1919, Rudolf Nureyev, ballet dancer 1938.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: Two Irishmen were stopped by the police for jaywalking. The sergeant said, "Name?" The first man replied, "O’Connor." The sergeant asked, "Address?" O'Connor answers, "No fixed abode" The sergeant, looking at the other, says, "Name?"  The other man replies, "O’Brien, and I live in the flat above him."

After eight days of backpacking with his wife, the pair were looking pretty scruffy. One morning, she came to breakfast in a baseball cap, her shoulder length hair sticking out at odd angles.

She said to her husband, "Darling, does my hair make me look like a water buffalo?" The husband thought for a moment, then said, "If I tell you the truth, do you promise not to charge?"

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A man with tickets to the Super Bowl finds his seat and relaxes. As he sits down, a man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him. The first man says, "No, the seat is empty." The stranger says, "That's incredible. Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Super Bowl and not use it?"

The man says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Super Bowl we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."

The stranger replies, "Oh...I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. Couldn't you find someone else - a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?" The man shakes his head. "No, they're all at the funeral."

An eccentric billionaire wanted a mural painted on his library wall, so he called in an artist. Describing what he wanted, the billionaire said, "I am a history buff, and I would like your interpretation of the last thing that went through Custer's mind before he died. I am going out of town on business for a week, and when I return I expect to see it completed."

Upon his return, the billionaire went to the library to examine the finished work. To his surprise he found a painting of a cow with a halo. Surrounding this there were hundreds of Indians in various stages and different positions of making love.

Furious he called the artist in. "What the hell is this?" screamed the billionaire. "Why that's exactly what you asked for," said the artist smugly. "No! I didn't ask for a mural of pornographic filth, I asked for a mural of the interpretation of Custer's last thoughts!" The artist said, "And there you have it. I call it, 'Holy cow look at all those f*cking Indians!'"

That's it for today, my little leprechauns. Cheers…and may ye be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows yer dead. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

Congress: Quit Debating And Just Give Us The Same Health Care Plan That You Have

I can't begin to tell you how incredulous it is to me that some of these moronic politicians, both democrat and republican, get elected, much less re-elected. Their current project is health care. The answer is to give us the same plan that they have.

We know that they vote for their own pay raises and decide what their health care should cover. It seems to me that if they care about America, they would do the same for us.

While you're pondering that thought and waiting for hell to freeze over, morons like Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer, former SNL dufus Al Franken and American Indian descendant Elizabeth "Pocohontas" Warren continue to say things that even ex-convicts would hesitate to say.

While there are many republicans who fit right in with the above mentioned bird brains, the liberal press gives more time to democrats, thus giving the dumb republicans time to hide. Mick Mulvaney and Rob Woodall come to mind.

One of the more fortunate things is that Harry Reid, who has taken more money under the table than most politicians, is out of office. Even better, some of the birdbrains like republican Strom Thurman, have mercifully died.

Nevertheless, the plan is to repeal Obamacare and come up with a better plan for America. I hope they succeed.

The News As I See It: On Wednesday, there was a protest across the country known as "A Day Without Women." In fairness, I celebrated "A Day Without Women" all through my late teens and early 20s.

Wisconsin is hosting the U.S. Cheese Championship. Once again, the winner is expected to be "Heart Disease."

The accountants at Price Waterhouse Coopers who botched the Oscars have received death threats. The FBI tried to investigate, but the accountants handed them the wrong hate mail.

Taco Bell has announced that it is creating a hybrid of its Quesalupas and Doritos Locos Tacos, called the Doritos Quesalupa Crunch. Of course, if you can say that, you’re probably not drunk enough to eat it.

This Date In History: 1629; Charles I of England dissolves Parliament and rules alone for 11 years. 1785; Thomas Jefferson is appointed minister to France. 1848; Congress ratified the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, ending the Mexican War. 1864; U. S. Grant became commander of the Union armies during the Civil War.

1876; The first telephone call ("Mr. Watson, come here. I want you.") was made by Alexander Graham Bell. 1948; The body of Jan Masaryk, Czechoslovakia's anti-Communist foreign minister was found.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) My parents never asked me to run away from home, but then there were so many unexplained one way tickets. 2) I typed 12 beers into my calorie counting app and it uninstalled itself. 3) The difference between Congress and a federal prison is that one is filled with liars, thieves, tax evaders and threats to society. The other is for housing prisoners. 4) Note to all of my lovely female friends: I become more attractive when you put on your wine glasses. 5) My girlfriend and I are re-enacting "Titanic". We're at the part where Rose is naked on the couch. I can't draw well. I think my pencil may be out of lead.....and that's five !

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: God visited a woman and told her she must give up smoking, drinking and sex if she wants to get into heaven. The woman said she would try her best.

God visited the woman a week later to see how she was getting on. The woman said, "Not bad. I've given up smoking and drinking but then I bent over to get some stuff out of the freezer and my boyfriend caught sight of my long slender legs, pulled up my skirt and made love to me right then and there."

God said, "They don't like that in heaven." The woman replied. "They weren't too happy about it in Sears, either!"

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: An old man goes into a brothel and tells the madam he would like a young girl for the night. Surprised, she looks at the man and asks how old he is. The old man responds, "I'm 85 years old."

Murray and his three golf buddies were out playing and were just starting on the back nine when Murray paused, looked down the fairway and began to sob uncontrollably. The other three gathered around him and asked, "What's wrong?"

Murray looked down at his feet, then apologized for his emotional outburst, "I'm sorry, I always get emotional at this hole. It holds very difficult memories for me." One of his buddies asked, "What happened? What could have gotten you so upset?"

Murray stared silently off in the distance, then said in a low voice, "This is where my wife and I were playing 12 years ago when she suddenly died of a heart attack right at this very hole." His buddy said, "Oh my God! That must have been very difficult for you!"

Murray replied, "Difficult? It was worse than that! Every hole for the rest of the day, all the way back to the clubhouse it was hit the ball, drag Edna, hit the ball, drag Edna....."
