I would like to thank everyone who helped and voted for my entry in Magic Smoke's "What's The Caption" contest last week. There were many good entries and it was very close. I'm pleased to say that my entry won, but the real winners are you, the people who read this journal. To all of those of you who I bribed, you should be receiving your payments in the mail. To all of my family members, who I had to pay dearly for voting for me, your just rewards will also be coming soon, but not in the mail. To the mailman that I bribed, alternate Plan B is now in effect. Thanks again for your help.
I know soap operas are captivating, but a woman in Croatia, who had been missing since 1966, was found dead, sitting in her armchair in front of her black and white TV. Hedvika Golik was reported missing 42 years ago and neighbors say they thought she had moved away.
You would think it might have dawned on someone in the family to ask, "Have you seen mom?" Call me silly, but I would think right around the time the grass got waist high, somebody would have picked up a clue. I wonder if "All My Children" played over there?
From The I Love It Department: The Malibu beach where Mathew McConaughey surfs was the scene of brawl between the locals and the paparazzi scum who prey upon anything filmable regardless of safety. The locals jumped the paparazzi and proceeded to inflict physical harm and ruin their camera equipment. Nothing could please me more. Maybe if more people opened a can of Whoop-Ass on the jerks, they'd quit harassing people. Authors Note: There's a brief commercial before this videos plays.

The Lone Ranger is captured by Indians and the Chief says, "So you are the great Lone Ranger. In honor of the Harvest Festival, you will be killed in three days. But first, I will give you three requests. What is your first request?"
The Lone Ranger responds, "I'd like to speak to my horse." The chief nods and Silver is brought to the Lone Ranger, who whispers in Silver's ear and the horse gallops away.
Later that evening, Silver returns with a beautiful blonde woman on his back. As the Indian Chief watches, the blonde enters the Lone Ranger's teepee and spends the night.
The next morning, the Chief admits he's impressed. "You have a very fine and loyal horse, but I will still kill you in two days. What is your second request?" The Lone Ranger again asks to speak to his horse. Silver is brought to him and once again he whispers in the horse's ear. As before, Silver takes off across the plains and disappears over the horizon.
Later that evening, to the Chief's surprise, Silver again returns, this time with a brunette, even more attractive than the blonde. She enters Lone Ranger's teepee and also spends the night.
The following morning the Indian Chief is again impressed and says, "You are a man of many talents, but I still kill you tomorrow. What is your last request?" I'd like to speak to my horse.... alone." The Chief is curious but he agrees and Silver is brought to the Lone Ranger's teepee.
Once they're alone, the Lone Ranger grabs Silver by both ears, looks him square in the eye and yells, "Listen carefully, you dumb ass! For the last time...... Bring Posseeeee !
A woman scanned the guests at a party and spotted an attractive man standing alone. She approached him and said, " Hi, my name's Carmen." The man said, "That's a beautiful name. Is it a family name?"

The man replied, "B. J. Titsengolf."
