Check out Ananova - Taxidermist turns pets into pillows

Check out Ananova - Sleepwalker mows lawn naked

Key line: ""I was going to wake him but I have always been told it can be dangerous to disturb someone who is sleepwalking."
And she didn't want to disturb him before he finished the lawn!

No need to be unfair

A valuable training video for prospective parents of sub-teenagers (you know who you are).

I don't know of a single parent that hasn't done something along these lines at least once.

& trade ; = ™

and even more are here.

The Evolution of a Programmer

A joke for those in the IT industry, although it misses out the real geezer languages like COBOL that I grew up with.

What whas this mother DOING....

...while her kids did all this (Thanks to Jeff Meyerson):

The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas...

Things I've learned from my Children (honest & no kidding)

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft.
house 4 inches deep.

2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with
Roller blades, they can ignite.

3.) A 3-year old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded

4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not
strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a
Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paint can, to spread
paint on all Four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When
using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few
times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball a long way.

6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball
hit by a ceiling fan.

7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh," it's already
too late.

8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9.) A six-year old can start a fire with a flint rock, even though a
36-year old man says they can only do it in the movies.

10.) Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year

11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same

12.) Super glue is forever.

13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still
can't walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15.) VCR's do not eject PB&J sandwiches even though TV commercials
show they do.

16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18.) You probably do not want to know what that odor is.

19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do
not like ovens.

20.) The fire department in La Mesa, CA has a 5-minute response time.

21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms

22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24.) The mind of a 6-year old is wonderful. First grade-true story:

One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little
Pigs to her class. She came to the part of the story where the first
pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home. She
read, "...And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of
straw and said, 'Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build
my house?'

The teacher paused, then asked the class, "...And what do you
think that man said?"

One little boy raised his hand and said, "I think he said 'Holy
mackerel! A talking pig!"

The teacher was unable to teach for the next
10 minutes.

25.) Eighty percent of men who read this will try mixing the Clorox
and brake fluid.
