There was the
person who sent ten different puns to friends with the
hope that at least one of the puns would make them laugh.
No pun in ten did.
Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked
barefoot most of the time, which produced an impressive
set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very little,
which made him rather frail and, with his odd diet, he
suffered from bad breath. This made him a super calloused
fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.
Q. What does HMO stand for?
A. This is actually a variation of the
phrase, "HEY MOE." Its roots go back to a
concept pioneered by Moe of the Three Stooges, who
discovered that a patient could be made to forget the
pain in his foot if he was poked hard enough in the eye.

AN INGENIUS GIRL.
She Turned a
Disfigurement Into a Beauty.
A certain young lady who is employed as
stenographer and typewriter in an uptown office has
introduced a new style of hair dressing, in which the
hair is brought down low over the temples and back over
the ear in a very becoming manner.
The style was much admired and envious
friends wondered how she happened to invent such a
novelty, until she was walking down the street a few days
ago when a strong gust of wind disbevelled her carefully
arranged locks and revealed to her surprised companions
that a large patch of hair above her ear had been singed
off close to her head.
A confession was made which attributed
the disfigurement to an unfortunate experiment with

Wearin a helmet while
ridin a bicycle just makes good sense.
Course growin up I never even
considered the idea. Didnt bother me
any. Didnt bother me any. Back then,
anyone fraid to take their lumps
didnt need ta be tacklin a two
wheeler. Ya might as well of had a set of
trainin wheels. If I ever had a helmet
on while peddlin a bike, I was on the
way to a neighborhood touch football game (at
least thats what our parents were told.
Typically there was plenty of real
tacklin goin on. Didnt
bother me any.)
The real bumps to the head

HERES A TIP
Does your kitty scratch
his face constantly? Try switching his food bowl
for a plate; deep bowls irritate cats
To reduce pet odors,
keep a spray bottle on hand with this mix: half
water and half vinegar. Mist the pets
bedding or carpet, even the pet itself (protect
eyes, mouth and ears).
"I have adult acne,
and I have tried many things for it. My friend
told me about this solution, which she found out
about from a homeopathic vitamin store. It has
worked for me. Boil a tablespoon of dried basil
in a cup of water, let it cool, strain and dab on
your face." -- J.J. in Florida
Chewing gum stimulates
saliva production, making it a good antacid. But
be sure to chew sugarless gum, as it is better
for your teeth.
"You can remove
garlic or onion smell from your hands by
sprinkling them liberally with salt (kosher works
well) and rubbing them together for several
seconds, then rinse them in cold water. Its
magic!" -- P.W. in Indiana
