Comment: Is this true?

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

"In honor of this holy season," Saint Peter said, "you must each possess
something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven."

The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He
flicked it on. "It represents a candle," he said.
You may pass through the pearly gates Saint Peter said.

The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys.

He shook them and said, "They're bells".
Saint Peter said you may pass through the pearly gates.

The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and
finally pulled out a pair of women's panties.

Saint Peter looked with a raised eyebrow and asked, "And just what do
those symbolize?"

The man replied, "They're Carols."

Oh great. More crap written coming from beyond the grave. I suppose you're working on your story about how you were horribly murdered by your father with a puppy?

Comment: I think this is unmitigated garbage, can you tell me

Every Beatles album has a small image of
a hamster hidden somewhere within the artwork.
This is a private joke referring to the fact
that they were going to call themselves
The Hamsters at one stage.
These little images are difficult to find,
and therefore all the more rewarding on
locating them. Clue: In "With The Beatles",
look in George's left nostril. A coffee
table book of Bealtles album artwork,
entitled "Where's Hammy?" will be published
by Simon and Schuster in time for Christmas.

No, Trish, it's an albino hamster and it's sleeping. It's right there! Upper-left corner. No, your other left.

Sorry, I'll get it...

Is there really Diet Coke with Bacon? Will it be avaliable in LA this
Spring?

I check your site first and then checked cocacola.com and didn't see
anything.

I don't know that I am crazy about the combo but that has to be two of my
favorite things.

Ugh. I like diet Coke (so stop ragging on me for ordering one with my fattening burger meal!) and I like bacon. But then, I like puppies and I like horror films, but I don't want to see puppies IN horror films!

This is making me think of the old Simpsons episode where Homer says that he's in the demographic in which companies will listen to all of his ideas and he proceeds to pull a jar from the cupboard that is labeled "Nuts & Gum--Together at Last!"

If they haven't starred in a movie together, I'm sure you can link them using no more than six people.

Comment: Found this while surfing the web, is it true?

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

THE WORLD'S LARGEST CAT, Verismo Leonetti Reserve Red, and the world's
smallest cat, Mr. Peebles, were scheduled to be photographed together in a
publicity event on Wednesday. Both hold Guiness Book World Records for
Longest and Smallest cat, respectively. While it is normal for some cats
to reject eachother upon meeting, an unexpected turn of events led to Mr.
Peebles's untimely demise.

It is unknown whether Verismo Leonetti "Leo" Reserve Red, a 4-foot-long
Maine Coon, ate breakfast on Wednesday morning. When he was introduced
to the 2-lb Mr. Peebles, they immediately took to one another. One witness
says, "Leo just started licking Mr. Peebles like a mother to a kitten."

Once the two were taken to the room with all of the cameras, things began
to get a little strange. Leo, who has been rumored to have performed in a
cat food commercial on one or two occasions, immediately climbed upon a
table and prepared by primping for the photo shoot. Mr. Peebles crawled
into a glass bowl to help emphasize his small stature. A photographer
thought that this would have been a cute scene, so he asked someone on the
set to move Mr. Peebles's bowl to the table where Leo was bathing.

"From there, it was a bloodbath," said photographer Peter Ellis. "That big
cat must have thought that the bowl was carrying his lunch." Before anyone
could intervene, the massive Maine Coon cat swallowed the tiny Mr. Peebles
and licked his chops as though he had just had a tasty meal.

At this time, it is not known whether anyone will be pressing charges.

Comment: I just need information as to whether or not an article I read
was true. I heard that Jay Feeley was murdered by his teammates on the
plane ride home after the game with Seattle Seahawks. Please email me with
the answer.

Comment: EINSTEIN

Einstein's birthday is March 14. He would now be 127. Few people
remember that the Nobel Prize winner married his cousin, Elsa Lowenthal,
after his first marriage dissolved in 1919.

He stated that he was attracted to Elsa because she was well endowed. He
postulated that if you are attracted to women with large breasts, the
attraction is stronger if there is a DNA connection. This came to be
known as Einstein's Theory of Relative Titty.
