        Police warn all male clubbers, party-goers and unsuspecting pub regulars to
        be more alert and cautious when getting a drink offer from a girl.

        A Scotland Yard spokesman said "There is a drug around called "beer" and it
        is generally in liquid form. The drug is now being used by female sexual
        predators at parties to convince their male victims to have sex with them.

        The shocking statistic is that "beer" is available virtually anywhere! All
        girls have to do is persuade a guy to consume a few units of "beer" and
        simply ask him home for no-strings-attached sex. Men are literally rendered
        helpless against such attacks. After several "beers" men will often succumb
        to desires to perform sex acts on horrific looking women whom they would
        never normally be attracted to.

        Men often awaken after being given "beer" with only hazy memories of exactly
        what has happened to them the night before, just a vague feeling that
        something bad occurred.

        Please! Forward this to every male you know. If you fall victim to this
        insidious drug and the predatory women administering it, there are male
        support groups with venues in every town where you can discuss the details
        of your shocking encounter in an open and frank manner with a bunch of
        similarly-affected like-minded guys.

        For the nearest support group near you just look up 'Public House' in the

            Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, 'You're next.' They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.


              An unemployed man goes to apply for a job with
              Microsoft as a janitor. The manager there arranges for
              him to take an aptitude test.

              After the test, the manager says, "You will be employed
              at minimum wage, $5.15 an hour. Let me have your e-mail
              address, so that I can send you a form to complete and
              tell you where to report for work on your first day.

              Taken aback, the man protests that he has neither a
              computer nor an e-mail address. To this the MS manager
              replies, "Well, then, that means that you virtually
              don't exist and can therefore hardly expect to be

              Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and
              having only $10 in his wallet, he decides to buy a 25
              lb flat of tomatoes at the supermarket. Within less
              than 2 hours, he sells all the tomatoes individually
              at 100% profit. Repeating the process several times
              more that day, he ends up with almost $100 before going
              to sleep that night. And thus it dawns on him that he
              could quite easily make a living selling tomatoes.
              Getting up early every day and going to bed late, he
              multiplies his profits quickly.

              After a short time he acquires a cart to transport
              several dozen boxes of tomatoes, only to have to trade
              it in again so that he can buy a pick-up truck to
              support his expanding business. By the end of the
              second year, he is the owner of a fleet of pick-up
              trucks and manages a staff of a hundred former
              unemployed people, all selling tomatoes.

              Planning for the future of his wife and children, he
              decides to buy some life insurance. Consulting with an
              insurance adviser, he picks an insurance plan to fit
              his new circumstances. At the end of the telephone
              conversation, the adviser asks him for his e-mail
              address in order to send the final documents

              When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the adviser
              is stunned, "What, you don't have e-mail? How on earth
              have you managed to amass such wealth without the
              Internet, e-mail and e-commerce? Just imagine where you
              would be now, if you had been connected to the internet
              from the very start!"

              After a moment of thought, the tomato millionaire
              replied, "Why, of course! I would be a floor cleaner at

              Moral of this story:

              1. The Internet, e-mail and e-commerce do not need to
              rule your life.

              2. If you don't have e-mail, but work hard, you can
              still become a millionaire.

              3. Seeing that you got this story via e-mail, you're
              probably closer to becoming a janitor than you are to
              becoming a millionaire.

              4. If you do have a computer and e-mail, you have
              already been taken to the cleaners by Microsoft.

                    Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.

                    C.S. Lewis


                      In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

                      The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.

                      Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of "cocktails", "highballs" and just a good old-fashioned "stiff drink". Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

                      Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.
