Greetings, 

Welcome to December. Here in the Chicago area we were treated 
to about six inches of snow to mark the occasion. So I got 
to spend a half hour shoveling out the driveway this morning 
and I am NOT used to that kind of exercise. My shoulders and 
back are going to be killing me tomorrow morning. While I run 
to the store for some Ibuprofen you can get started on some 
really cool material I've put together for you today. Make 
sure to check out the quote from my new favorite movie below. 
Oh, and you can also see Ultraman performing some 'space judo' 
in the video clip at the bottom of the page. Cool stuff!

TEASE: 

A man in a restaurant asked a waiter for a juice glass, 
a dinner plate, water, a match, and a lemon wedge. The 
man poured enough water onto the plate to cover it. 

"If you can get the water on the plate into this glass 
without touching or moving this plate, I will give you 
$100," the man said. "You can use the match and lemon to 
do this." 

A few minutes later, the waiter walked away with $100 in 
his pocket. How did the waiter get the water into the 
glass?


MOVIE QUOTE: 

"This is Mr. Lee Ho, he's teaching me and Monkey Tae kwon do. 
I got my yellow belt today. Monkey got his red belt. He's a 
quick learner!"

Reese's Cell Phone Ban...

Reese Witherspoon has reportedly banned cell phones on the 
set of her new film. The reason? To stop pictures of her 
and co-star Jake Gyllenhaal from being taken.   

Reese is determined not to be linked to her co-star Jake. 
A source told US magazine: "Reese doesn't want any rumors 
about her and Jake."   

However, Reese's apparent ban may have come too late as news 
of her and Jake's budding friendship has already been cir-
culating after the pair were spotted enjoying a lengthy chat. 

A source said: "Jake stopped by her trailer and waited for 
her. They laughed and talked then he left."

*************** BIZARRE STORY OF THE WEEK **************** 

----------- Man Seeks Record for Arm Hair Length -----------   

JACKSON, Wis.- Jon Sanford takes good care of his hair,   
washing it regularly and conditioning it occasionally. Now   
he might break a record for that hair - on his arms. One   
particularly long strand measured 4.1 inches. If the measure-   
ment is ruled official by Guinness World Records, Sanford   
will have topped the previous record of 3.96 inches. "It's my   
mutant hair," said Sanford, 37. Sanford is from Jackson, a   
town about 30 miles northwest of Milwaukee. He downloaded the   
necessary forms from Guinness, faxed them back and received   
further directions. "I need two witnesses whom I do not know   
and they have to be respected in the community," he said of   
the instructions. So he turned to Jackson patrol officer Shane   
Wrucke and fire chief John Skodinski. "We're not always saving   
lives and protecting property. We also do other things,"   
Skodinski said. To comply with Guinness regulations, Wrucke   
and Skodinski accompanied Sanford to the bathroom before the   
measurement to watch him wash the arm hair. "I condition it   
sometimes," Sanford said. Sanford will receive a certificate   
if his application is affirmed. His mother, Sue Sanford, said   
the hair was "gross," but his daughter Molly called it "cool."

LAFF A DAY: 

Some time ago, there was this artist who worked from a 
studio in his home. He specialized in nudes and had been 
working on what he thought would be a masterpiece for 
several months now. 

As usual, his model reported and after exchanging the 
usual greetings and small talk, she began to undress 
for the day's work. 

He told her not to bother, that he felt pretty bad with a   
cold he had been fighting. He added that he would pay her   
for the day but that she could just go home; he just   
wanted some hot tea and then, off to bed.   

The model said "Oh, please, let me fix it for you. It's the   
least I can do."   

He agreed and told her to fix herself a cup too. They were   
sitting in the living room just exchanging small talk and   
enjoying their tea when he heard the front door open and   
close, then some familiar footsteps. "Oh my God!" he   
whispered loudly, "It's my wife! Quick! Take all your   
clothes off!"

CLEAN LAFFS: 

Usually the secretary at my son's school answers when I call,   
but on this occasion I spoke to an unfamiliar voice. I men-   
tioned this to my 11-year-old son and asked if he knew who it   
was.   

"It could have been Mrs. Campbell," he answered after thinking   
it over. "Did it sound like she was wearing a blue coat?"

TEASE: 

A man in a restaurant asked a waiter for a juice glass, 
a dinner plate, water, a match, and a lemon wedge. The 
man poured enough water onto the plate to cover it. 

"If you can get the water on the plate into this glass 
without touching or moving this plate, I will give you 
$100," the man said. "You can use the match and lemon to 
do this." 

A few minutes later, the waiter walked away with $100 in 
his pocket. How did the waiter get the water into the 
glass?

TEASE ANSWER: 

First, the waiter stuck the match into the lemon wedge, 
so that it would stand straight. Then he lit the match, 
and put it in the middle of the plate with the lemon. 
Then, he placed the glass upside-down over the match. 
As the flame used up the oxygen in the glass, it created 
a small vacuum, which sucked in the water through the 
space between the glass and the plate. Thus, the waiter 
got the water into the glass without touching or moving 
the plate.


MOVIE QUOTE: 

"This is Mr. Lee Ho, he's teaching me and Monkey Tae kwon do. 
I got my yellow belt today. Monkey got his red belt. He's a 
quick learner!"

MOVIE QUOTE ANSWER: Peter Dante as 'Dante' in "Grandma's Boy"
