Some have gotten mad at me for not forwarding or replying to those things, but I value my computer too much to open all that junk and run the risk of another virus.
Aside from all that, I received an email this morning from a friend I used to work with in Mt. Vernon, and it gave me a little chuckle to start the day, and I thought there may be others of you who could use a little humor too.
These are supposed to be actual headlines from newspapers from around the world.
I have no idea if they are real or not, but either way, they are funny.
Enjoy! (While you have a cup of coffee Neil)
