Joke(s) of the Week
A lawyer was cross-examining the doctor about whether or not he had checked the pulse of the deceased before he signed the death certificate.

"No," the doctor said. "I did not check his pulse."

"And did you listen for a heartbeat?" asked the lawyer.

"No I did not," the doctor said.

"So," said the lawyer, "when you signed the death certificate, you had not taken steps to make sure he was dead."

The doctor said, "Well, let me put it this way. The man's brain was in a jar in a jar on my desk but, for all I know, he could be out practicing law somewhere."

    This fellow had female friends and wives falling and getting killed on staircrosses across the planet.

    Could they all really be accidents? A review of Lifetime's premiere move "The Staircase Murders".

    And read this now for I shall watch no more. This TV reality show is not funny, though "Thank God you're Here Purports to Be".

    Finally, finally it's spring. A visit to my early spring garden with more promise than flowers.

    Joke(s) of the Week
    A couple who have been married for 20 years is preparing for bed when the following conversation takes place...

    She: "Honey, if I die before you, would you remarry?"

    He: "That's a morbid question!"

    She: "No, I really want to know."

    He (pauses to think): "Yes, I suppose, after a decent amount of time, I might remarry."

    She: "Would she live in our house?"

    He: "Well, the mortgage is almost paid off - would you really expect me to move?"

    She: "Would she wear my mink coat?"

    He: "You know I paid $3,500 for that coat - would you really want me to sell it for a loss?"

    She: "Well, would she use my golf clubs?"

    He: "No. Absolutely not. She's left-handed."

    Here's a True Crime Post and we've got some.

    Two biggies this week: the Duke story and the Mary Winkler Trial. We've got the latest on all. Plus a pic of the Duke "victim" for why should remain anonymous?

    A young woman gives birth and stabs her newborn 175 times. Plus more on Governor Corzine's accident.

    He killed a 6 year old girl when he was only 12. He got a break. Then he robbed a pizza guy at gunpoint and he's back in jail. He's dangerous as can be but why do attorneys want to put him back on the street?

    And a deaf lesbian chainsaw murderer...we're not making this up.

    The aspiring psychiatrists from various colleges were attending their first class on emotional extremes.

    The Easter season seems to have toned down True Crime across the fruited plains. So we re-visit Darlie Routier who has a fan base of kooks who want to free this woman who murdered her own sons.

    Plus a Child Psychologist is a molester and a quadraplegic rapist?

    Old lady beats cop with cane and an adolescent arrested for writing on her desk at school?

    Finally, Nancy Pelosi's "crime" may not land her in jail but it's a crime nonetheless.

    Joke(s) of the Week
    The Israelis and Arabs finally realized that if they continued fighting, they would someday end up destroying the world.

    So, they sat down and decided to settle the whole dispute with a dogfight. The negotiators agreed that each country would take five years to develop the best fighting dog they could.

    The dog that won the fight would earn its country the right to rule the disputed areas.

    The losing side would have to lay down its arms.

    The Arabs found the biggest, meanest Dobermans and Rottweilers in the world. They bred them together and then crossed their offspring with the meanest Siberian wolves.

    They selected only the biggest, strongest puppy from each litter, killed all the other puppies and fed them the best food . They used steroids and trainers in their quest for the perfect killing machine.

    After the five years were up, they had a dog that needed iron prison bars on its cage. Only the trainers could handle this beast. When the day of the big fight arrived, the Israelis showed up with a strange animal.

    It was a nine-foot-long Dachshund. Everyone felt sorry for the Israelis. No one else thought this weird animal stood a chance against the growling beast in the Arab camp. The bookies predicted the Arabs would win in less than a minute. The cages were opened. The Dachshund waddled toward the center of the ring.

    The Arab dog leapt from his cage and charged the giant wiener-dog. As he got to within an inch of the Israeli dog, the Dachshund opened its jaws and swallowed the Arab beast in one bite. There was nothing left but a small bit of fur from the killer dog's tail.

    The Arabs approached the Israelis, shaking their heads in disbelief. "We do not understand. Our top scientists and breeders worked for five years with the meanest, biggest Dobermans and Rottweilers. They developed a killing machine."

    "Really?" the Israelis replied. "We had our top plastic surgeons working for five years to make an alligator ! look like a Dachshund."

    Here's a True Crime Post and we've got the strange story of active church members supporting a known child molester.

    And how about that Va Senator Jim Webb sneaking a gun into congress? Only Webb got his assistant to do the deed and now his loyal Aid faces jail time.

    He molested a teenager only he wasn't a man, but a WOMAN!

    Finally, an update on Timothy Hennis who brutally murdered a woman and her young daughters. He escaped justice a long time ago but newer DNA tests nail him as the Perp. Will the government really be able to use the military justice system to get around that pesky "double jeopardy" issue?

    Kaitlyn spent a few days with Mom-Mom for her Easter 2007 visit.

    The child attended church TWICE on Palm Sunday weekend but hey, she got all of 19 eggs during the Easter egg hunt. Pics of Kaitlyn in her smashing Easter outfit and stunning curls.

    Also, Guest Writer Michelle celebrates many years of wedded bliss.

    Finally, a quick once over on the newest version of the reality series "The Bachelor". He's a doctor, he's single, he's handsome and he worried more about the ladies he must reject.

    Heh. Or so he says.
