Top 8 Morons of 2006

1. WILL THE REAL DUMMY PLEASE STAND UP? AT&T fired President John
Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He
received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking
intelligence.


2. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS: Police in Oakland, CA spent
two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside
his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that
the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting, "Please come
out and give yourself up."

3. WHAT WAS PLAN B??? An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun,
kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different
automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money
from his own bank accounts.

4. THE GETAWAY!? A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop and
asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too
small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three
hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

5. DID I SAY THAT??? ?? Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a
robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When
detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words: "Give me all your
money or I'll shoot", the man shouted, "that's not what I said!".


6. ARE WE COMMUNICATING???? A man spoke frantically into the phone:
"My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart".?
"Is this her first child?" the doctor asked "No!" the man shouted, "This
is her husband!"



7. NOT THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHED! In Modesto, CA, Steven Richard
King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a
weapon.? King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun.?
Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellooooooo)!

8. THE GRAND FINALE!!! Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located
in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to
boating, were having a problem.? No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't
get their brand new 22 foot boat, going.? It was very sluggish in almost
every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied.? After about an hour
of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking
someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong.? A thorough topside
check revealed everything in perfect working condition? The engine ran fine,
the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and
pitch.? So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check
underneath.? He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.

NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE.
Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

Thanks Bill & Doris B.
