October 29, 1999

In memory of my faithful friend and companion, my beloved dog
January 29, 1986 - October 29, 1999
who loved me unconditionally, as I shall love her always...


It takes us back to brighter years,
to happier sunlit days
and to precious moments
that will be with us always.
And these fond recollections
are treasured in the heart
to bring us always close to those
from whom we had to part.

There is a bridge of memories
from earth to Heaven above...
It keeps our dear ones near us

It's the bridge that we call love.

MASS MARKETING — Over the course of several weeks in 1963 some nine hundred persons in the villages of Mbale and Kigezi, Uganda were seized en masse by a maddening compulsion to run wildy through the streets clutching chickens and screaming until they fell from exhaustion. Scientists later diagnosed it as a case
of mass hysteria.

MISCALCULATION LEADS TO TRAGEDY: (Zurich, Switzerland) — The nation recently mourned the death of one of its brightest shining intellectual stars. Johan Unterwald was described by college professors as "the next Albert Einstein" and a brilliant mathematician. It seems Johan made at least one fatal math error. He took a 250 ft. bungee jump with a 300 foot bungee cord. He died immediately on impact.

A man and his wife were going to a costume party at a rural mansion. Just in sight of the mansion, the car broke down. They decided to walk.

Since the shortest distance was across a pasture and they were going as a cow, they decided on the short cut. About halfway across the pasture, they ran into a bull who became very "interested." The husband, who was in the back, said, "What shall we do now?"

The wife, who was in front, said, "I'm going to put my head down and make believe I'm eating grass. You had better brace yourself."


There's a man with a bald head and a wooden leg who gets invited to a Halloween party. He doesn't know what costume to wear to hide his head and his leg so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain the problem.

A few days later he receives a parcel with a note.

"Dear Sir, please find enclosed a pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and, with your wooden leg, you will be just right as a pirate."

The man thinks this is terrible because they have just emphasized his wooden leg, and so he writes a letter of complaint. A week passes, and he receives another parcel and a note, which says:

"Dear Sir, please find enclosed a monk's habit. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and, with your bald head, you will really look the part."

Now the man is really annoyed since they have gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to emphasizing his bald head, so he writes the company another nasty letter of complaint. The next day he receives a small parcel and a note which reads:

"Dear Sir, please find enclosed a bottle of molasses. Pour the molasses over your bald
head, stick your wooden leg up your butt, and go as a Caramel apple!"

• You'd live in a place where no two people had the same name.

• You'd only pay $21.95 a month to live there, but half the time you tried to leave your house, the door would be stuck.

• Once you got outside, even if you were in a hurry, you'd be assaulted by slimy little door-to-door sales creeps offering you great AOL 14.4 modems for only $399.99.

• The commute to work is just a double-click away, but every time you try to leave your driveway, the flow of traffic knocks you back into your yard.

• The local post office would tell your mother you're not a known resident.

• The local post office won't forward your mail to you when you move.

• If you saw a crime and called 911, they'd reply a week later with a form letter saying how you "really are important to us."

• Every time you went shopping, you'd be kicked out of the store by a bouncer screaming, "WE'RE SORRY, THIS STORE IS TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE."

• Whenever you traveled to other cities, people would see your license tag and laugh at you, behind your back.

• You'd occasionally be sent home during your day by another bouncer telling you that the city has performed an illegal operation.

• You'd not have any idea who your neighbors are, and most new arrivals would move in at night, stuff everyone's mailbox with garbage, and vacate before sun-up.

• The administration would build a huge, state of the art park, and allow the kids to play there free, then suddenly start demanding money.


NOTE FROM CHRIS: Our friends at the NY Times were tricked into giving free publicity to a website ( which supposedly auctions off the eggs of models to the highest bidders. The website was actually the brainchild of a man who has several porn websites online, but the Times evidently didn't do enough research to uncover that fact, and instead ran a serious article about the site. So we here at Top5 decided to provide the good folks at the Times with material for a follow-up article...

15. Upon delivery, you discover the egg contains a pair of pantyhose.

14. Thousands of years of evolution shot all to hell.

13. Sure, you can *buy* them now — but you have to wait over 18 years before you can legally have sex with your purchase.

12. Health conscious models always removing the yolks first.

11. Conception only possible with sperm from an androgynous rock star.

10. Baby will insist that umbilical cord be cut only by Vidal Sassoon himself.

9. Child Protective Services worker just doesn't appreciate how it can eventually get to you when every time you tell him to take out the trash, he enigmatically whispers, "Obsession."

8. Other kids and their vicious taunts: "Don't hate me because I'm sunny-side up!"

7. You'll spend a king's ransom for ipecac syrup for the baby.

6. The kid grows up to resent you because that willowy frame, those long thin legs and those exquisitely tiny hands kept him off the varsity football team.

5. Photo shoot wind machine keeps blowing your boys upstream.

4. With your luck, you'll get the egg with recessive supermodel genes and dominant webmaster genes.

3. Tough for Mr.Tripp to explain to perfectly-fertile wife, Linda.

2. Upside: Your daughter looks like Kathy Ireland!
Downside: Your daughter thinks like Kathy Ireland!

     and's Number 1 Risk of Buying a Model's Egg...

1. Model eggs rebel at the very thought of being inseminated with *your* ugly-ass nerd sperm.
