Fun on the Web June 1, 2011 NY Times to Charge Readers

Do you pay to read the NY Times or any news site? I have removed some bookmarks.


A couple was delighted when finally their long wait to adopt a baby came to an end. The adoption centre called and told them they had a wonderful Japanese baby boy, and the couple took him without hesitation.
On the way home from the adoption centre, they stopped by the local college so they each could enroll in night courses. After they filled out the form, the registration clerk inquired, "Whatever possessed you to study Japanese?"

The couple said proudly, "We just adopted a Japanese baby and in a year or so he'll start to talk. We just want to be able to understand him"


"The TSA is being criticized for checking 2-year-olds at
airport security. People say 2-year-olds can't be
terrorists — unless you're sitting next to one on a flight."
-Jay Leno


Sitting through fire safety and prevention programs can make
anyone nod off. So the instructor tried to lighten the mood
by going around the room asking where all the guests were
from. "Burnt Mattress, Arkansas," called out the friend
sitting next to me.

"Burnt Mattress!" said the instructor, suppressing a laugh.
"I've heard some unusual town names before, but never that
one. Where's it located?"

My friend shot back, "Right above Hot Springs."


"There is a new iPhone app that will do your taxes for you.
At this point, I don't trust my iPhone to make a phone call."
-Jay Leno


A couple was having some trouble, so they did the right thing and went to a marriage counsellor. After a few visits, and a lot of questioning and listening, the counsellor said that he had discovered the main problem.

He stood up, went over to the woman, asked her to stand, and gave her a hug. He looked at the man and said, "This is what your wife needs, at least once a day!"

The man frowned, thought for a moment, then said, "Ok, what time do you want me to bring her back tomorrow?"
