A friend of mine seems to have very short arms.
We’ll be out for a beer or burger and when the check comes,
he’s never able to reach it. Any ideas how to get this
guy to buy a round once in a while?

Dear Ed K,
To deal with a situation like this you must embrace his disability.
Either quit being a cheap bitter man or just get nubs a reaching
Why do all the religions in the world claim that
their religion is the correct one? My 10th-grade religion teacher
in Catholic school even had the nerve to tell me my father was
going to hell because he wasn’t Catholic. Who do I believe?
Should I embrace Satanism? It seems that is the only belief
that doesn’t compete with other religions.
– Thanks, Biff
As for the Catholics, the only way you can get into heaven
is to drink heavily and attend your weekly bingo hall. And the
destination for Satanism is obvious. If you want to know which

You’re asking the wrong questions. Maybe you should ask
why good ole “Uncle Steve” only comes over to stay

Is e-mail a safe way to communicate?
Is sitting in front of a computer like sitting in front of
a microwave? Can it give me cancer?
Bill, Durango Hills
You are right to be concerned. E-mail is not
safe, in fact, you are being monitored right now. As for the
microwave – cancer, no; reading your thoughts, yes.
In fact, someone is looking in your window right now, maybe
it’s the gardener, or maybe it’s Charlie ready
to attack at the first sign of vulnerability. Maybe you should
go outside and get some sun. Leave the camo inside.
– Be afraid, Diver
