Subject: VALENTINE.....

Little David comes home from first grade and tells his father that they
learned about the history of Valentine's Day. "Since Valentine's day is
for a Christian saint and we're Jewish," he asks, "will God get mad at me
for giving someone a valentine?" David's father thinks a bit then says,
"No, I don't think God would get mad. But who do you want to give a
valentine to?"
"Osama Bin Laden," David says.
"Why Osama Bin Laden?" his father asks in shock.
"Well," David says, "I thought that if a little American Jewish boy could
have enough love to give Osama a valentine, he might start to think that
maybe we're not all bad and maybe start loving people a little bit. And if
other kids saw what I did and sent valentines to Osama, he'd love everyone
a lot. And then he'd start going all over the place to tell everyone how
much he loved them and how he didn't hate anyone anymore."

His father's heart swells and he looks at his boy with newfound pride.
"David, that's the most wonderful thing I've ever heard."
"I know," David says. "And once that gets him out in the open, the Marines
could blow the shit out of him

Subject: Virus Alert - The Mother Of All Viruses

If you receive an email entitled "BadBadBad IXI," delete it
immediately. Do not open it. Apparently this one is pretty nasty.

It will not only erase everything on your hard drive, but it will
also delete anything on disks within 20 feet of your computer.
It demagnetizes the stripes on ALL of your credit cards.  It
reprograms your ATM access code, screws up the tracking on your
VCR and uses subspace field harmonics to scratch any CD's you
attempt to play-- except Yanni CD's. With them it doubles the

It will automatically download kiddie porn to your hard drive and
then notify the authorities.

It will re-calibrate your refrigerator's coolness settings so all
your ice cream melts and your milk curdles.

It will program your phone auto dial to call only your mother-in-
law's number.

This virus will mix antifreeze into your fish tank.

It will leave dirty socks on the coffee table when you are
expecting company.

It will talk nasty about your mother.

Its radioactive emissions will cause your toe jam and bellybutton
fuzz (be honest, you have some) to migrate behind your ears.  It
will replace your shampoo with Nair and your Nair with Rogaine,
all while dating your current boy/girlfriend behind your back and
billing their hotel rendezvous to your Visa card -- the only card
stripe it didn't demagnetize.

It will cause you to run with scissors and throw things in a way
that is only fun until someone loses an eye.

It will rewrite your backup files, changing all your active verbs
to passive tense and incorporating undetectable misspellings which
grossly change the interpretations of key sentences.

If the "BadBadBad" message is opened in ANY Windows environment,
it will leave the toilet seat up and leave your hair dryer plugged
in dangerously close to a full bathtub.

It will not only remove the forbidden tags from your mattresses

Subject: Happy Valentines Day!

Here's to Corporate Holidays....

This past weekend, I was rushing around trying to do some Valentine's Day shopping done. I was stressed out and not thinking very fondly of the weather right then. It was dark, cold, and wet in the parking lot as I was loading my car up. I noticed that I was missing a receipt that I might need later. So mumbling under my breath, I retraced my steps to the mall entrance. As I was searching the wet pavement for the lost receipt, I heard a quiet sobbing.

The crying was coming from a poorly dressed boy of about 12 years old. He was short and thin. He had no coat. He was just wearing a ragged flannel shirt to protect him from the cold night's chill.

Oddly enough, he was holding a hundred dollar bill in his hand. Thinking that he had gotten lost from his parents, I asked him what was wrong. He told me his sad story. He said that he came from a large family. He had three brothers and four sisters. His father had died when he was nine years old. His Mother was poorly educated and worked two full time jobs. She made very little to support her large family. Nevertheless, she had managed to skimp and save two hundred dollars to buy her children some Valentine's Day presents (since she didn't manage to get them anything on Christmas).

The young boy had been dropped off, by his mother, on the way to her second job. He was to use the money to buy presents for all his siblings and  save just enough to take the bus home. He had not even entered the mall, when an older boy grabbed one of the hundred dollar bills and disappeared into  the night.

"Why didn't you scream for help?" I asked.

The boy said, "I did."

"And nobody came to help you?" I queried.

The boy stared at the sidewalk and sadly shook his head. "How loud did  you scream?" I inquired.

The soft-spoken boy looked up and meekly whispered, "Help me!"

I realized that absolutely no one could have heard that poor boy cry for help! So I grabbed his other hundred and ran to my car.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

Subject: idiot-proof warning labels

we've all seen various iterations of these labels in many emails from our
fellow contributors to this list, [e.g.:  do not iron clothes while wearing
them; contents will be hot when heated; etc.] but here's a new one which may
or may not be an urban legend:

just two night ago, at my second job, a fellow-worker remarked about having
gone off-season shopping for a rotary lawn mower at sears.

while he was looking over the various models, he noticed the warning sticker
on the top of the cutting deck:  "do not stick hands underneath while engine
is running."

mentioning this as being a bit ridiculous and extreme to the salesman, the
salesman told my friend, "i can tell you exactly why that sticker's there."

in the story the salesman went on to relate, it seems that two "good ol'
boys" from some unnamed locale in the good ol' u.s. of a. decided that it
would be a neat idea to use their rotary lawn mower as a hedge trimmer.

sure enough, with one on each side of the mower and on each side of the
hedge, they HAND CARRIED the mower along the top of the hedges, with one
hand on the handle and one under the deck *just* out of the way of the
rotating blade.

this produced not only a nice, neat, straight, flat, clean top to the
hedges, but when one of the stumbled slightly, they also get a nice, neat,
straight, flat, clean cut on one of these morons' hands, eliminating all
four of his fingers which were under the mower's deck.

now *that's* american ingenuity at work!


be seeing you,

Subject: LBNN Late-Braking News: Condos

LBNN Late-Braking News Network

Washington, DC (LBNN) - President George W. Bush today expressed
admiration for Pope Paul but went on to disagree with the recent papal
pronouncement on birth control:  "I have every respect for the Holy
Father's stance on birth control, but I cannot, for the life of me,
endorse his ban on condos as an alternative life style.  It seems to me
that seniors, especially seniors, should not have to forego condos this
late in life. Sometimes, condos are their only option for decent housing."

A woman surgeon was disturbed about the high cost of her car repair.

"This is ridiculous!" she said, "charging me five hundred dollars
to grind the valves and put in new piston rings."

"Not really, just think about it. You are a surgeon and should know
that an automobile engine is just as complicated as a human body.
The mechanic who serviced your car is just as skilled as you are."

President Bush and Colin Powell were sitting in a bar. A guy walks in

The barman looks over and confirms, "Yep, that's them."

Bush checks to make sure no one is listening in, and whispers, "We're

Bush says, "Well, we're going to kill 140 million Iraqis and one bicycle

Subject: Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

What the country is talking about this week...

1)  Whoopi Goldberg:  She sends her Oscar out for cleaning?  What has she
been doing with it—planting tulips?

2)  "Crossroads"  Britney Spears stars in her first film.  And all the
critics agree: She's never going to have to worry about dirty, stolen

3)  Rosie O'Donnell:  She may out herself in an upcoming autobiography.  It
turns out that all these years she's secretly been a 90-pound lingerie

4)  Skeleton:  A one-person sled that goes more than 60 miles an hour.  I
wish I had a car that could do that.

5)  Dee Snider:  The Twisted Sister frontman is the voice of MSNBC.  There's
something about a man wearing lace gloves and lipstick that screams, "Trust

6)   Madonna:  She may sing the next James Bond movie theme.  Gee, now
everyone will want to see it.

7)  Bode and Picabo:  Their parents bought the bargain brand, Hukd on

8)  Enron:  They're planning a made-for-TV movie about the debacle.  It's
what television does best—make money off other people's tragedies.

9)  "John Q."  Denzel Washington hijacks a hospital in a fit of HMO rage.
Seems they wouldn't pay for his anger management therapy.

10)  Snowboarding:  It's easier than falling off a log.  A 200-foot-high log
covered with jagged, flesh-ripping, bonebreaking, tendon-shredding branches.

11)  Liza Minnelli:  She's invited 1,200 people to her wedding.  It's so big
because if you've gone to three of her weddings, the fourth one's free.

12)  "Hart's War"  Bruce Willis plans an escape from a WWII POW camp.  But
how will he get his hair and makeup people out with him?

13)  Chinese New Year:  It's the Year of the Horse.  Yet I'm still wearing
clothes from the Year of the Pig.

14)  Salt Lake City:  Reporters were afraid they wouldn't be able to drink,
smoke, and fool around.  Which is why they became reporters.

15)  Oscar nominations:  I can't remember—did "Memento" get any?
