A family was travelling on vacation when they came across a petting zoo. The children asked if they could stop, and the parents said okay.

At the zoo, they saw and touched many animals and had a great time. While driving to their next vacation stop the father noticed the kids playing with something. He asked, "What have you kids got back there?"

The children then produced a very cute baby skunk. The father was horrified because he realized that they had taken this skunk from the zoo. To teach his kids a lesson he told them that if they got caught they could go to jail for this. While he was reprimanding his children he hadn't noticed that he was speeding and had just gone through a speed trap. When the police car came after him he thought
that they must have found out about the skunk and that was why they were stopping him. He told the kids to keep quiet and give the skunk to their mother. He then told her to hide the skunk.

She said, "Where am I going to hide it?"

The father said to put it under her dress and hold it between her legs until the police left.

She said, "But it stinks!"

The father replied, "Well, can't you just hold his little nose?"

Dear Greebs

Here is a clipping received at one of the Y2K organisations in Zambia:

Extracted from a note from the Zambia GTA (Government Telecommunication Agency)

Y2K Project Manager to the GTA IT Directory.

" I hope I haven't misunderstood your instructions. Because to be honest none of this Y to K problem makes any sense to me. At any rate, I have finished converting all the "Y's" to "K's" for all the months on all the company calendars so that the year 2000 is ready to go with the following
new months:





I'm sure you'll be pleased that the project has been completed well in advance of the target completion date.

Yes, in Zambia we are now 100% Y2K compliant. "

Ivor Biggun.

Is this true? I mean about the name Ivor!!!


A new feature in 'Just For Fun'... News that I think you should know about...

Gov. Mel Carnahan, whose popularity increased following his death, won the U.S. Senate race in Missouri, ousting Republican John Ashcroft. He is the first dead man to win a U.S. Senate seat.

Following Carahan's death, which came too late to replace his name on the ballot, Roger Wilson, who succeeded Carnahan as governor, pledged to appoint Carnahan's widow, Jean, should the dead governor win the election.


Arnold Schwarzenegger says Hollywood should cut back on violent images.

Whilst promoting his new movie "The 6th Day," Schwarzenegger said that he doesn't want his children "watching incredible violence."

His new movie, which opens November 17th is rated PG-13, reportedly after he insisted the producers tone down the violence and the language.

The big guy's new emphasis on kinder, gentler action movies could face a stiff challenge next year, when he films the third installment of the "Terminator" series. Both "The Terminator" and "T2: Judgment Day" were rated 18 (R).


Alas no winners this week... But nice try for all those that entered, better luck this week guys...
