YOUR WEEKLY TWISTED AFFIRMATIONS FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM...
There is absolutely nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won't cure!
IN THE NEWS THIS WEEK:
CANDY IS DANDY BUT LICORICE IS QUICKER: (Boston, MA) A ladies man suffering from a lackluster libido may want to lay off the licorice. Three Italian doctors warn in a letter published in Thursday's New England Journal of Medicine that glycyrrhizic acid, the active ingredient in licorice, suppressed sex hormone levels in seven men in their 20s. Just 7 grams (0.25 ounces) of licorice a day over four days was enough to reduce the amount of testosterone by an average of 44 percent. Extracts of licorice root are a widely used flavoring agents found in breath fresheners and candy. (Reuters)
PAPER OR PLASTIC?: (St. Petersburg, Fla. Convenience store robbers sometimes wear stockings or ski masks to hide their faces. This one used a clear plastic bag. "It looked like a big prophylactic down to his waist. Kind of translucent," said Pinellas County Sheriff's Sgt. Greg Tita. Police said Herman Hill, 35, a transient, did not have a disguise when he went to a St. Petersburg area Circle K convenience store Tuesday, allegedly to rob the place, so he grabbed a transparent garbage bag and threw it over his head. Authorities said he made off with less than $100. Hill, who told police he was a crack addict, was arrested Thursday when authorities said he was caught trying to break into a home. He was charged with robbery, attempted burglary and trying to escape. (Reuters)
[Hill should have been charged with Criminal Stupidity.]

REMEMBER TO TRY THIS EXCUSE: (Oslo, Norway) A Norwegian arrested for driving with a bellyful of booze claims only his teeth were full of liquor. The 44-year-old man failed a breathalyzer test when he was stopped by police, the Oslo newspaper Aftenposten reported Friday. He claimed the test result was too high because of vodka trapped in cavities in his bad teeth.

MIRACLE CURE: Japanese doctor Kiro Arikawa claims to have found a cure for insomnia, allergies, anxiety, and plain old stress. Dr. Arikawa insists that the root of all these maladies is simply too little sex. "Sex is absolutely vital to glowing good health," he explains, "and many people just don't get enough." The doctor maintains that healthy sex decreases stress levels, and leads to contentment and long life...

MARTIANS vs. VENUSIANSLong Story Short:
(HIS STORY vs. HER STORY)
[Thanks to John John Garison's Home Page]
Girl and boy are having a relationship of about four months now. One Friday night they meet at a bar after work. They stay for a few, then went to get some food at a local restaurant near their respective homes. They eat, then go back to his house and she stays over.
He was in an odd mood when I got to the bar, I thought it might have been because I was a bit late but he didn't say anything much about it. The conversation was quite slow going so I thought we should go off somewhere more intimate so we could talk more privately. So we went to this restaurant and he's STILL acting a bit funny and I'm
trying to cheer him up and start to wonder whether it's me or something else. I ask him, and he says no. But you know I'm not really sure. So anyway, in the cab back to his house, I say that I love him and he just puts his arm around me.
I don't know what the hell this means because you know he doesn't say it back or anything. We finally get back to his place and I'm wondering if he's going to dump me! So I try to ask him about it but he just switches on the TV. Reluctantly, I say I'm going to go to sleep. Then, after about 10 minutes, he joins me and we have sex. But, he still seemed really distracted, so afterwards I just wanted to leave. I dunno, I just don't know, what he thinks anymore. I mean, do you think he's met someone else ???
Shitty day at work, low on funds, and tired. Got laid though.
CRAIG'S QUICKIESQ: Why does a penis have a hole in the end?
[Thanks again to Craig]
A: So men can be open minded.
Q: Did you hear about the new all-female delivery service?
A: It's called U.P.M.S. They deliver any time they fucking feel like it.
Q: What do you get if you cross a nun with a computer?
A: A system that won't go down.
Q: How are men and parking spots alike?
A: Good ones are always taken. Free ones are mostly handicapped or extremely small.
It is about time we learned what's in the drugs that are put out. Just saw a report on CNN; they have finally released the ingredients in Viagra: 2% aspirin, 2% ibuprofen, 1% filler, and 95% Fix-a-Flat.
Ask any man, and he will tell you that any woman's ultimate fantasy is to have two men at once. While this has been verified by a recent sociological study, it appears that most men do not realize that in this fantasy, one man is cooking, and the other is cleaning.

NEW THINGS YOU LEARN WHEN YOU HAVE CHILDREN

(Better known as the don't try this at home department. Go to the neighbors house and use their kids!)
If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing pound puppy underwear and a superman cape.
It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20 by 20 foot room.
When you hear the toilet flush and the words "Uh-oh," it's already too late.
Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.
If you use a waterbed as home plate while wearing baseball shoes it does not leak it explodes.
A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000-square-foot house 4 inches deep.
No matter how much Jello you put in a bathtub, you still can't walk on water.
The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy. It will, however, make cats dizzy.
Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

SAYING GOODBYE THE 90'S WAY
Men often find blowing off a woman the most difficult part of the dating process. The closest they ever come to telling a woman it's over is to look her straight in the eye and say, "I'll call you next week." But there is how a great way to blow a woman off. It's safe, it's affordable and the best thing is the female has no opportunity to throw things at you. It's at your fingertips right now e-mail. That's how all the happening, 90's kind of
guys are telling women they are not worthy. You'll feel like a real man knowing you have told her how you really feel from the safety of your keyboard. And you can delete her response without ever reading it. What could be more painless? Following is an e-mail rejection letter Men can use it the next time they need to put their main squeeze on notice. The text of the letter follows:
Dear (her name),
I regret to inform you that you have been eliminated from further contention to become the future Mrs. (your last name). As you are probably aware, the competition was exceedingly tough this year and dozens of well-qualified candidates such as yourself also failed to make the final cut. I will, however, keep your name on file should an opening become available.
So that you may find better success in your future romantic endeavors, please allow me to offer the following reasons you were disqualified from the competition (men will check those that apply)
_____ Your failure to reach for your purse in even a feigned attempt to pay for dinner by the fourth date displayed a stunning ignorance of basic economics.
______ Your inadvertent admission that you "buy condoms and K-Y Jelly by the truckload" indicates that you may be slightly overqualified for the position.
______ You failed the 20 question rule, i.e., I asked you 20 questions about yourself before you asked me more than one about myself.
______ The only question you did ask was how much money I make.
______ You neglected to reach over and unlock my car door from the inside after I opened the passenger side door for you.
______ My breasts are bigger than yours.
______ Your height is out of proportion with your weight. If you should, however, happen to gain the necessary 17 vertical inches, please resubmit your application.
______ Your repeated comments such as, "Is it still called a penis when it's this small?" were both uncalled for and thoughtless.
______ The way you enthusiastically jumped on stage at the alternative bar and danced with the lesbians demonstrated that you are far too impressionable and have a disconcerting lack of commitment to heterosexuality.
______ Your revelation that you would most certainly allow your ex-boyfriend to shack up with you again after he "beats that domestic abuse rap" shows compassion but makes it difficult to take you seriously.
______ Although your inability to achieve orgasm was of paramount importance to me, your suggestion that we invite the basketball team into the bedroom so it would be "just like college" seemed somewhat extreme and inappropriate.
______ I am out of your league; set your sights lower next time.

TRUTH IN ADVERTISING
Ernest Shackleton's recruiting advertisement for 1912 Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition:
"Men wanted for hazardous journey. Small wages, bitter cold, long months of complete darkness, constant danger, safe return doubtful. Honour and recognition in case of success."
If Shackleton were advertising in the 1990's:
"Members wanted for adventure trek. Low cost, cool sights, fun nights, thrills galore, insurance available. Get your picture in Outside magazine."

THE MOST VENOMOUS SNAKE IN THE WORLD
NAME: "Expecteria Trouserius" (Trouser Snake)
LOCATION: Throughout the world
One-eyed, with mushroom-shaped head (other types come with extra layers of skin)
Varying from pink to black.
Fang-less with a highly venomous spit. (Spit can reach distances up to 2-3 feet)
Size varies from 3 to 12 inches, depending on its mood & sub-species.
SYMPTOMS: This snake attacks mainly women in the lower front abdomen resulting in an inconspicuous bump. Then a severe swelling followed by excruciating pain after nine months. The attack is not usually fatal. Beware: It has been known to attack men in the rear lower abdomen!
HABITAT: Usually found in bedrooms, but has been known to appear in the most unusual places.
ANTIDOTE: Various types of vaccine available for women. However, once the venom is injected into the body only drastic measures will ensure complete recovery. There is no known antidote for men.
WHAT TO DO WHEN ATTACKED
TOURNIQUET: Do not apply a tourniquet, as the venom is too deep in the body to be affected.
CUTTING THE WOUND: This would be completely unnecessary and ineffective, as the bleeding will stop after a few weeks anyhow.
SUCKING THE WOUND: This method is the most popular with the victim, but so far has not been reported to lead to any success.
SEARCHING FOR ANTI-VENOM:
1. Place four fingers of the right hand around the neck of the reptile, with the thumb in the front.
2. Grip firmly and move the hand in an upward and downward motion.
3. This will result in the snake becoming highly aggressive, very rigid and start spitting.
4. The time taken for this milking process depends entirely on the milker and the last time the snake attacked.
5. Once milked, the snake should be harmless for about 20 minutes.
This snake, although it is very aggressive and active, is not necessarily a vermin. If treated with the right respect, it will make a wonderful pet.

MORE TIPS FOR NORTHERNERS MOVING SOUTH
Just because you can drive on snow and ice does not mean we can. Stay home the two days of the year it snows.
There is nothing sillier than a Northerner imitating a southern accent, unless it is a southerner imitating a Boston accent.
Get used to hearing, "You ain't from around here, are you?"
People walk slower here.
Don't be worried that you don't understand anyone. They don't understand you either.
The first Southern expression to creep into a transplanted Northerner's vocabulary is the adjective "Big ol' ", as in "big ol' truck" or "big ol' boy". Eighty-five percent begin their new southern influenced dialect with this expression. One hundred percent are in denial about it.
The proper pronunciation you learned in school is no longer proper.
Be advised: The "He needed killin'" defense is valid here.
If you hear a Southerner exclaim, "Hey, y'all, watch this!" stay out of his way. These are likely the last words he will ever say.
Most Southerners do not use turn signals, and they ignore those who do. In fact, if you see a signal blinking on a car with a southern license plate, you may rest assured that it was on when the car was purchased.
Northerners can be identified by the spit on the inside of their car's windshield that comes from yelling at other drivers.
The winter wardrobe you always brought out in September can wait until November.
If there is the prediction of the slightest chance of even the most minuscule accumulation of snow, your presence is required at the local grocery store. It does not matter if you need anything from the store, it is just something you're supposed to do.
Satellite dishes are very popular in the South. When you purchase one it is to be positioned directly in front of your trailer. This is logical bearing in mind that the dish cost considerably more than the trailer and should, therefore, be displayed.
Tornadoes and Southerners going through a divorce have a lot in common. In either case, you know someone is going to lose a trailer.
Florida is not considered a southern state. There are far more Yankees than Southerners living there.
As you are cursing the person driving 15 mph in a 55 mph zone, directly in the middle of the road, remember, many folks learned to drive on a model of vehicle known as John Deere, and this is the proper speed and lane position for the vehicle.
