Off to the dentist

A couple of old guys were golfing when one said he was going to Dr. Taylor for a new set of dentures in the morning.

His friend remarked that he had gone to the same dentist a few years before. “Is that so?” the first said. “Did he do a good job?”

“Well, I was on the course yesterday when the fellow on the ninth hole hooked a shot with his Mizuno drivers,” he said. “The ball most have been going 200 mph when it hit me in the stomach. That,” he added, “was the first time in two years my teeth didn’t hurt.”

Online Banking

An accousticly coupled modem

The amazing watch

A man is at Grand Central Station waiting for his train that leaves
at 6 p.m., but he has forgotten his watch. So he looks for someone to
ask the time. He spots a guy carrying two suitcases and sporting this
fabulous hi-tech watch; it might have even been a Patek Philippe, so he asks him for the time.

The guy replies “Sure, which country?”

The fella asks, “How many countries have you got?” to which the man replies, “All the countries in the world!”

“Wow! That’s a pretty cool watch you’ve got there.”

“That’s
nothing,” the man says. “This watch also has a GPS facility, fax,
e-mail and can even receive NTSC television channels and display them
on its miniature active color pixel LCD screen!”

“Boy, that’s incredible. I wish I had a watch like that one. You wouldn’t consider selling it by any chance?”

“Well, actually the novelty has worn off for me, so for $900, if you want it, it’s yours.”

The watchless traveler can hardly whip out his checkbook fast enough to hand over a check for $900.

The
seller takes off the watch and gives it to him. “Congratulations, here
is you new hi-tech watch.” Then, handing the two suitcases over as
well, he says, “And here are the batteries.”

Watch the robber

The exterior of a RadioShack store in a shoppi...

February 1, 1993

Raleigh, N.C., police charged Vernon Edsel Brooks, 34, with robbing a Radio Shack in July, despite his foresight in disabling a video surveillance camera by taking the camera with him as he fled.

Now they weren’t using live video streaming services but he forgot to take the recorder to which the camera was connected, police found a tape containing a full facial shot of Brooks reaching for the camera.

Photogenic Phantom

Trick Or Treat Smell My Feet

There was this haunted house on the outskirts of the town which was avoided by all the townfolk – the ghost which `lived’ there was feared by all.

However, an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop of the day by photographing the fearsome phantom. It was a cold and dark night, lightning lit up the sky, so he dressed up warm in one of his thickest NCAA jerseys and a warm parka. When he entered the house, armed with only his camera, the ghost descended upon him, clanking chains et al. He told the ghost “I mean no harm – I just want your photograph”. The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make the headlines – he posed for a number of ghostly shots.

The happy journalist rushed back to his dark room, and began developing the photos. Unfortunately, they turned out to be black and underexposed.

So what’s the moral of the story?

The spirit was willing but the flash was weak.
