                   IJMC - The Classes and the Tales

Since all of this was bundled up nicely for me...it's staying bundled up 
nicely for you...just remember, it's an equal-opportunity offender, it's 
going for both males and females.

And a quick update...I got a live person at Netcom today! I still haven't 
talked with (or even had the existence proven of) the person in charge of 
the Majordomo server...but it's a step. This will be fixed!         -dave

A policeman was patrolling a local parking spot overlooking a golf course,
He drove by a car and saw a couple inside with the dome light on. There
was a young man in the driver's seat reading a computer magazine and a
young lady in the back seat knitting.  He stopped to investigate. 

He walked up to the driver's window and knocked.  

The young man looked up, cranked the window down, and said, "Yes officer ?"

"What are you doing ?" the policeman asked.

"What does it look like ?" answered the young man. "I'm reading a magazine."

Pointing towards the young lady in the back seat, the officer then asked
"And what is she doing ?"

The young man looked over his shoulder and replied. "What does it look 
like, she is knitting."

"And how old are you?" the officer then asked the young man.

"I'm nineteen." he replied.

"And how old is she?" asked the officer.

The young man looked at his watch and said, "Well, in about twelve minutes
she'll be eighteen.


A very elderly couple is having an elegant dinner to celebrate their 75th
wedding anniversary.  The old man leans forward and says softly to his
wife "Dear, there is something that I must ask you.  It has always
bothered me that our tenth child never quite looked like the rest of our
children.  Now I want to assure you that these 75 years have been the most
wonderful experience I could have ever hoped for, and your answer can not
take that all that away.  But,.. I must know, did he have a different

The wife drops her head, unable to look her husband in the eye, she paused
for moment and then confessed. "Yes.  Yes he did." 

The old man is very shaken, the reality of what his wife was admitting hit
him harder than he had expected.  With a tear in his eye he asks "Who?..
Who was he?  Who was the father?" 

Again the old woman drops her head, saying nothing at first as she tried
to muster the courage to tell the truth to her husband. 

Then, finally, she says "You".
