Found In R Mailbox....
Bob had this problem of getting up late in the morning and was always late for work. After a few weeks of this, his boss was mad and threatened to fire him if he didn't do something about it. So Bob went to his doctor, who gave him a pill and told him to take it before he went to bed. He got a great night's sleep and actually beat the alarm in the morning. After a leisurely breakfast, he cheerfully drove to work. "Boss," he said, "The pill actually worked!"

"That's all fine," said the boss, "But where were you yesterday?"

Sony Sues the Dixie Chicks
QUOTE FROM ARTICLE: The Chicks complained about the terms of their deal in an interview with Dan Rather on CBS' 60 Minutes II last fall. Rather estimated that the band had generated at least $200 million in album sales. Band member Emily Robison said, "You're depressing me because we see so little of that. I'll just say that Sony Nashville has remodeled their new building. They remodeled on that." Lead singer Natalie Maines added, "I don't even have a million dollars in the bank. Tell me where this money goes." READ MORE

A Child's View
An old country doctor went way out to the boondocks to deliver a baby. It was so far out, there was no electricity. When the doctor arrived, no one was home except for the laboring mother and her 5-year-old child. The doctor instructed the child to hold a lantern high so he could see, while he helped the woman deliver the baby. The child did so. The mother pushed and after a little while, the doctor lifted the newborn baby by the feet and spanked him on the bottom to get him to take his first breath. The doctor then asked the 5-year-old what he thought of the baby. The little boy responded: "He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place. Spank him again."
