You're Going To Get Screwed

In a small town the patrolman was making his evening rounds...
As he was checking a used car lot, he came upon two little old ladies sitting in a used car.
He stopped and asked them why they were just sitting there in the car.
Are you trying to steal it?
"Heavens no, we bought it."
"Then why don't you drive it away."
"We can't drive."

Workmen clear 100 TONS of rubbish from a home

It's been a while since Merv Jones tidied up or vacuumed.
In fact, it's been so long that he might never have been able to find the Hoover amid the astonishing 100 tons of rubbish and bric-a-brac in his home - assuming he ever looked for it.
Every room in the terraced house was filled from floor to ceiling with junk. It was even piled up in the hall. Both front and back gardens were also a mess.
After years of complaints from neighbors, council officials finally moved in to empty the building in Grimsby, filling skip after skip.
The extraordinary array of bric-a-brac had been collected over decades by the 73-year-old, including old rifles, ammunition and swords, along with hundreds of more ordinary items, such as dolls, electrical equipment, toys, pictures, books and ornaments.
As well as all the junk, there was a great deal of household rubbish. Windows were broken, pigeons had moved into the loft and bait traps had to be laid for the rats.
Mr Jones was put up in a hotel while his house was emptied over three weeks. North-East Lincolnshire Council intends to reclaim the cost of the operation from him.

A motorist confronted by a Alaska State Trooper said he was stunned when the officer told him the car had been stolen.
Charles J. Schultz explained that he was driving his Chevy Cavalier and everything was fine. That's when the trooper informed Schultz that he was actually behind the wheel of a Ford Escort.
Police charged Schultz with auto theft, felony driving under the influence and misdemeanor drugs misconduct. Police said the 27-year-old's blood-alcohol content was .166, more than twice the legal limit.
