Once upon a time, a young lad was born without a belly button. In its place
was a golden screw. All the doctors told his mother that there was nothing
they could do. Like it or not, he was stuck with it.
All the years of growing up was real tough on him, as all who saw the screw
made fun of him. He avoided ever leaving his house and thus, never made
any friends.
One day, a mysterious stranger saw his belly and told him of a swami in
Tibet who could get rid of the screw for him. He was thrilled. The next
day he took all of his life's savings and bought a ticket to Nepal.
After several days of climbing up steep cliffs, he came upon a giant
monastery. The swami knew exactly why he had come. He was told to sleep in the highest tower of the monastery and the following day when he awoke, the screw would have been removed.
The man immediately went to the room and fell asleep. During the night
while he slept, a purple fog floated in an open window, bearing in its mist
a golden screwdriver. In just moments, the screwdriver removed the screw
and disappeared out the window.
The next morning when the boy woke, he saw the golden screw lying on the pillow next to him. Reaching down, he felt his navel, and there was no
screw there!
Jubilant, he leaped out of bed, and his butt fell off.

The moral to this is: don't screw around with things you don't
understand -- you could lose your ass.
Oh yes sir, how right you are!
Terry That reminds me, I just ordered a new, custom built Kenworth, its specially built for guys like me, its got no seat nor no steering wheel, its built for guys like me who have lost their ass and don't know which way to turn.
