A cannibal entered the meat market to buy
something nice for dinner. The owner greeted him and told
him to look around. The cannibal began to inspect the
meat case and noticed the market specialized in brain.
Upon further inspection he noticed a
marked disparity between the costs of brain meats. A
carpenters brain sells for $1.50 per pound. A
plumbers brain sells for $2.25 per pound. He
noticed with alarm that a politicians brain sells
for $375.00 a pound. With not a little curiosity he asked
the owner why the huge difference in price between the
The owner responded with a deadpan look
on his face, "Do you realize how many politicians it
takes to get a pound of brains?"

Carthage today inssearch of a horse and buggy stolen from

years, drove to Sarcoxie Sunday evening to see his best

an hour or so later he found the rig gone.

horse, halter and laprobe are missing.
THE PONY HOMEWARD BOUND.

On Table Rock And Taneycomo Lakes Due To High
The Missouri State Highway
Patrol, cautions recreational boaters to avoid
boating on Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo
because of the current flood conditions. Large
amounts of floating debris due to the elevated
water levels have made boat operation hazardous
on both lakes. Significant damage has occurred to
dock structures on both Table Rock and Taneycomo
lakes. Increased wave action caused by boats on
these lakes would cause additional damage to dock
structures and seawalls already under stress from
the water levels. The Water Patrol has canceled
current regatta permits for fishing tournaments
on Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo to help
minimize damage to flooded areas.
Dock owners are reminded to be
cautious when working around dock structures.
Table Rock Lake already has had
historic releases of water from this floodevent
and could possibly see the water level top the
historic high seen in the spring 2008.

"If you have to cut
a nylon cord or shoelace, you can use a flame to
melt the end into a nub that wont run or

a hard surface very briefly. It works fast!"
