GROANERS & SHAGGY PUPPY STORIES
One day, the president of the United States was sitting in the Oval
Office reading a newspaper to catch on that day's current events. All
of a sudden, one of his secret service men burst through the door
with a long bull whip in his hand. The president looks at him and
thinks, "OK!", but tries to ignore him, thinking it's some kind of
gag. The secret service man then begins to take that bull whip and
begins "cracking" it, and walking around the president's desk. The
president looks up and asks him what he's doing, but the secret
service agent ignores him and goes, "Uh, hum" but keeps cracking the
whip as he walks around the presidents desk. The president gets
enough and yells at the secret service agent, "BY EXECUTIVE ORDER, I
DEMAND YOU TELL ME WHAT YOU'RE DOING!" The secret service agent
sheepishly looks up at him and says, "Sir, I'm just beating around
the Bush!" (Randy Foncree)

Joe, a friend of mine, got into a dispute with a friend of his, Fred.
Fred had pulled some rather nasty pranks on him. To get even, Joe got
under the hood of Fred's car, took the tops off the battery cells,
and put about a tablespoonful of table salt into each cell. This not
only precipitated the lead sulfate in the battery acid as pretty but
useless cubical crystals of PbCl2, but gave of HCl fumes which
corroded parts of the engine. Fred figured out who'd done it and Joe
was caught. He thought he would just have to make restitution, but
Fred had a brother in the prosecutor's office. He's now facing trial
on a-saltin' a battery. Not to mention SODIUMy
My boss is without peer when it comes to the rules and regulations
that customs officials must follow. But when it comes to the law,

During a magazine and newspaper subscription drive, our son Philip, a
paperboy, learned about good salesmanship. His supervisor had

Hampton Data had never seen this particular bug before. In short
order an engineer was dispatched to the customer site -- such things
were not supposed to occur in their high-security package. It took
exactly six hours for the lone individual to call for help -- and two
more engineers were sent over. The bug could not be recreated at
headquarters, and within another two days a crack team was sent out
from Corporate to study the problem. As the end of the week
approached, the word went out -- get the guys in Toronto. They were
the best the Company had -- the Eh? Team. (Bob Dvorak)
