Subj:     Why Sharks Circle You Before Attacking (S713b)
          From: redcatt on 9/9/2010

 Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors
 of a sunken ship.  "Follow me son!" the father shark said to
 the son shark and they swam to the mass of people.

 "First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of
 our fins showing." And they did.

 "Well done, son!  Now we swim around them a few times with
 all of our fins showing." And they did.

 "Now we eat everybody!" And they did.

 When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't
 we just eat them all at first?  Why did we swim around and
 around them?"

 His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without
 the crap inside!"

Subj:     Best Friends (S194, S375)
          From: JOELFALLON on 10/19/2000
      and From: hellgunner50 on 4/2/2004

 A man was riding his horse down a road while his dog padded
 alongside.  Suddenly the man remembered that he was dead,
 and that his horse and dog had been dead for years.  He
 wondered where the road was leading them.

 After a while, the travelers came to a high marble wall along
 one side of the road.  At the top of a long hill, the wall was
 broken by an arch that glowed in the sunlight.  When they
 reached the arch, the man saw a magnificent gate of mother-of-
 pearl.  The path that led to the gate was pure gold.  He nudged
 his horse toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man
 at a desk.

 "Excuse me," he called out. "Can you tell me where we are?"

 "This is heaven, sir," the man at the desk answered.

 "Heaven.* Would you happen to have some water, then?"

 "Of course, sir. Come right in." The gate began to open.

 "Can my friends come in, too?" the traveler asked, gesturing
 toward his horse and dog.

 "I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept animals here."

 The man thought for a moment, then turned his horse back toward
 the road and continued on his way.  After another long walk,
 and at the top of another long hill, he  came to a dirt road
 that led through a farm gate that stood open.  As he approached
 the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading
 a book.

 "Excuse me!" he called. "Do you have any water?"

 "Yeah, sure. There's a pump you can use. Come on in."

 "How about my friends here?" the traveler asked.

 "There should be a bowl and a bucket by the pump."

 They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an
 old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl and a bucket beside it. The
 traveler filled the bowl and took a long drink, then gave some
 to the dog while he filled the bucket for his horse.  When they
 had all satisfied their thirst, he led his horse back toward the
 man who was standing by the tree, with the dog following faith-
 fully behind.

 "What do you call this place?" the traveler asked.

 "This is heaven," was the answer.

 "Well, that's confusing," the traveler replied.  "The man down
 the road said that was heaven, too."

 "Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates?
 Nope.  That's hell."

 "Doesn't it make you mad that they use your name like that?"

 "No. I can see how you might think so, but we're just grateful
 that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends
 behind.                   -- Author Unknown

Subj:     Hamsters Named Bert And Ernie (S231b, S752)
          From: coreymac on 6/26/2001
      and From: allenbergman on 6/11/2011

 If you have raised kids (or been one), and gone through the
 pet syndrome including toilet-flush burial's for dead goldfish,
 the story below will have you laughing out LOUD!!!

 Overview: I had to take my son's hamster to the vet. Here's
 what happened

 Just after dinner one night, my son came up to tell me there
 was "something wrong" with one of the two hamsters he holds
 prisoner in his room. "He's just lying there looking sick,"
 he told me.  "I'm serious, Dad. Can you help?"

 I put my best hamster-healer statement on my face and followed
 him into his bedroom.  One of the little rodents was indeed
 lying on his back, looking stressed. I immediately knew what
 to do.

 "Honey," I called,  "come look at the hamster!"

 "Oh, my gosh," my wife diagnosed after a minute.  "She's
 having babies!"

 "What?" my son demanded. "But their names are Bert and Ernie,

 I was equally outraged. "Hey, how can that be? I thought we
 said we didn't want them to reproduce," I accused my wife.

 "Well, what do you want me to do, post a sign in their cage,?"
 she inquired. (I actually think she said this sarcastically!)

 "No, but you were supposed to get two boys!" I reminded her,
 (in my most loving, calm, sweet voice, while gritting my
 teeth together).

 "Yeah, Bert and Ernie!" my son agreed.

 "Well, it's just a little hard to tell on some guys, ya
 know," she informed me. (Again with the sarcasm, ya think?)

 By now, the rest of the family had gathered to see what was
 going on.

 I shrugged, deciding to make the best of it. "Kids, this is
 going to be a wondrous experience," I announced.  "We're
 about to witness the miracle of birth."

 "OH, Gross!", they shrieked.

 "Well, isn't THAT just Great!; what are we going to do with
 a litter of tiny little hamster babies?" my wife wanted to
 know. (I really do think she was being snotty here, too.
 Don't you?)

 We peered at the patient.  After much struggling, what looked
 like a tiny foot would appear briefly, vanishing a scant
 second later. "We don't appear to be making much progress,"
 I noted.

 "It's breech," my wife whispered, horrified.

 "Do something, Dad!" my son urged.

 "Okay, okay." Squeamishly, I reached in and grabbed the foot
 when it next appeared, giving it a gingerly tug.  It
 disappeared.  I tried several more times with the same

 "Should I call 911?" my eldest daughter wanted to know.
 "Maybe they could talk us through the trauma." (You see a
 pattern here with the females in my house?)

 "Let's get Ernie to the vet," I said grimly.  We drove to
 the vet with my son holding the cage in his lap.  "Breathe,
 Ernie, breathe," he urged.

 "I don't think hamsters do Lamaze," his mother noted to him.
 (Women can be so cruel to their own young.  I mean what she
 does to me is one thing, but this boy is of her womb, for
 God's sake.)

 The vet took Ernie back to the examining room and peered at
 the little animal through a magnifying glass.  "What do you
 think, Doc, a c-section?"  I suggested scientifically.

 "Oh, very interesting," he murmured. "Mr. and Mrs. Cameron,
 may I speak to you privately for a moment?"  I gulped,
 nodding for my son to step outside.

 "Is Ernie going to be okay?" my wife asked.

 Oh, perfectly," the vet assured us. "This hamster is not in
 labor.  In fact, that isn't EVER going to happen... Ernie
 is a boy."


 "You see, Ernie is a young male.  And occasionally, as they
 come into maturity, like most male species, they um.... er..
 masturbate just the way he did, lying on his back."  He
 blushed, glancing at my wife.

 "Well, you know what I'm saying, Mr. Cameron."

 We were silent, absorbing this.  "So Ernie's just...just...
 Excited?", my wife offered.

 "Exactly," the vet replied, relieved that we understood.
 More silence.  Then my viscous, cruel wife started to giggle.
 And giggle. And then even laugh loudly.

 What's so funny?"  I demanded, knowing, but not believing
 that the woman I married would commit the upcoming affront
 to my flawless manliness.

 Tears were now running down her face. "It's just...that...
 I'm picturing you pulling on its...its...teeny little..."
 she gasped for more air to bellow in laughter once more.

 "That's enough," I warned.  We thanked the Veterinarian
 and hurriedly bundled the hamsters and our son back into
 the car.  He was glad everything was going to be okay.

 "I know Ernie's really thankful for what you've done, Dad,"
 he told me.

 "Oh, you have NO idea," my wife agreed, collapsing into

Subj:     Puffer Fish Creates Sand Art On Ocean Floor (S869d)
          Video from Japanese photographer Yoji Ookata
Photo from YouTube.com
 Source1: http://www.youtube.com/embed/kj-K_pFoaDo
 Source2: http://www.wimp.com/fishcreates/

 This nature video by Marinestation Amami makes the incredible
 claim that the dramatic art design made of sand on the ocean
 floor was created entirely by a puffer fish!

 Recently while on a dive near Amami Oshima at the southern tip
 of the country, Japanese photographer Yoji Ookata spotted
 something he had never encountered before: rippling geometric
 sand patterns nearly six feet in diameter almost 80 feet below
 sea level. He soon returned with colleagues and a television
 crew from the nature program NHK to document the origins what
 he dubbed the "mystery circle."

 Using underwater cameras the team discovered the artist is a
 small puffer fish only a few inches in length that swims
 tirelessly through the day and night to create these vast
 organic sculptures using the gesture of a single fin.  Through
 careful observation the team found the circles serve a variety
 of crucial ecological functions, the most important of which
 is to attract mates.

 There are trees that grow in Africa which, once a year,
 produce very juicy fruits that contain a large percentage
 of alcohol. The tree is known as the "Elephant Tree,"
 because elephants have a fondness for the fruit. Because
 there is a shortage of water, as soon as the fruits are
 ripe, animals come there to help protect themselves from
 the heat. The tree is the Marula tree. You can buy a great

Subj:     The Goat And The Railroad Tie (S348, S587c)
          From: DR SWITZER on 98-03-05
      and From: rfslick on 4/13/2008

 Two hunters come upon a sink hole in the middle of the woods.
 They drop a rock into the hole and cannot hear it hit the
 bottom of the hole.  They find a boulder, roll it over and
 into the hole.  They still cannot hear it hit bottom.  They
 find a railroad tie and drag it by one end, to the hole and
 then drop it in and they get down to listen.  They hear
 nothing from the hole but, they hear a loud noise behind them
 and see a goat speeding towards them with it's head down and
 traveling at a high rate of speed.  They roll out of the goats
 way and the animal dives into the hole.

 The befuddled hunters decide it is time to leave.  As they're
 leaving the woods when they come upon a farmer.  The farmer
 asks the men if they had seen his goat.  "We did see a goat,"
 said one of the hunters, "It was going ninety miles an hour
 and went head first into a hole!"

 The farmer said, "Well boys, I don't think that was my goat.
 You see, my goat was really old and crippled up with arthritis.
 There is no way he could have been moving that fast.  Besides,
 I had him tied to this big, old railroad tie."

 It's a girl! That's the announcement from Dolphin Quest
 Hawaii, located at the Hilton Waikoloa Village as it
 welcomed the latest addition to the marine park on Monday.

 This is the first time a dolphin born and raised at the
 Dolphin Quest Hawaii facility has given birth in captivity
 and the incredible underwater birth was captured on video.

 At 12-years-old, Keo is considered an "older" first time
mom. While in labor, Dolphin Quest
crew members said they were anxious,
just like any family member would be.

In the lagoon with Keo was a support
team of the baby's grandmother, Pele

 and Noelani, the baby's aunt.

 Remarkable to watch was the close interaction Keo had with
 her human Dolphin Quest trainers. "We let her approach us.
 We would gently reach out with a hand on the back to make
 sure they're OK, you know, a mom in labor and the myriad
 of emotions she must be feeling," said Michelle Campbell,
 Dolphin Quest Hawaii's director of Marine Animals.

 These two whales, we'll call them Mamma and son, were swimming

 "Son you keep your distance from them boats."  For it was a
 harpoon boat, but just as they were turning around, BANG! THUD,
 the harpoo went right into the side of Mamma.  Down she went
 screaming out swim son save yourselffffffffff......

 Several months later son and his girlfriend were fornicating
 around, when off in the distance they spotted the very same
 harpoon boat.  Thinking of his mother, son thought frantically
 for a plan to get his revenge.  Son said to his girlfriend.
 "If we swim up behind them we can blow water up on to the boat
 and sink it." She agreed and off they went, BLOW SPURT BLOW
 SPURT. Down went the boat went, but several whalers escaped
 on a life boat.

 The son screamed, "Oh no! those are the guys that killed my
 Mamma and the're getting away!  Quick I'll tip the boat over
 and you eat them!!  His girlfriend frusteratedly replied,
 "Hold on a minute here, I agereed to the blow job but I never

 Lala, the 10 year old King Penguin is so smart - he walks
 to the fish store with his little backpack to shop for
 fresh fish every day.  And when he returns home to his
 Japanese family, there is an air-conditioned room waiting
 for him. 

 Backstory: Years ago (circa 1996) Lala's family rescued
 him from a fishing line and when he was fully recovered,
 he refused to leave.  He's been the family pet ever since.
 This video was filmed in 2006 when LaLa was 10 years old.
 Music: "Maple Leaf Rag" by Scott Joplin.

Sub:     Whale Caught In Crab Traps (S481c)
         From: Joke-Of-The-Day-Mail.com on 4/11/2006

 This is a true story and NOT a joke.

 In the San Francisco Chronicle, December 2005, you would have
 read about a female humpback whale who had become entangled in
 a web of crab traps and lines.  The fifty-foot whale was
 weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her
 to struggle to stay afloat.  She also had hundreds of yards of
 line rope wrapped around her tail, her torso and a line tugging
 in her mouth.

 A fisherman spotted her just east of a local island chain and
 called an environmental group for help.  Within a few hours,
 the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so bad off,
 the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her - a
 very dangerous proposition.  One slap of the tail could kill a

 They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed
 her.  When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed
 like joyous circles.  She then came back to each and every diver,
 one at a time, and nudged them, pushed them gently around - she
 thanked them.  Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful
 experience of their lives.  The guy who cut the rope out of her
 mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will
 never be the same.

 May you, and all those you love, be so blessed and fortunate
 this year-to be surrounded by people who will help you get
 untangled from the things that are binding you..

 In summer 2004, veterinarian Melanie Butera received an
 unexpected patient: a blind, dying fawn named Dillie.
 Butera and her husband nursed Dillie to health.  Now,
 Dillie-who snacks on lollipops and has her own bedroom
 in their house in Canal Fulton, Ohio-is a daily source
 of comfort and love to her adoptive family.

Subj:     The Animal Game (S85)
          From: auntieg on 98-09-16

 The following is a table of eight different set of animals.
 In each box, a scoring point is attached to the respective
 animal.  Choose one animal that you like most in each row,
 and add up your total score as you go thru the list.

 Refer to the score sheet for your result.  Be honest and
 good luck!


 Koala Bear -- 2  Polar Bear -- 3  Panda -- 1


 Eagle -- 3  Seagull -- 2   Pigeon--1


 Cat --3   Dog -- 2    Bird --1


 Hamster --2  Rabbit --1   Squirrel--3


 Sheep --1  Deer -- 2   Goat--3


 Dolphin -- 1  Shark -- 3   Whale --2


 Elephant -- 2  Lion -- 1    Tiger --3


 Swan -- 1  Goose -- 3   Hen --2



 Between 8-11 points

 You are passive, sentimental, emotional, lack self-confidence,
 but are creative and rational.

 Between 12-15 points

 You belong to the fun-seekers, adventurous, risk-takers,
 spontaneous types, but are not very rational.

 Between 16-19 points

 You are active, a challenger, optimistic, hardworking, always
 working towards a set goal.

 Between 20-24 points

 You have a strong character, aggressive, ambitious, go-getter.
 You were born to lead.


 I don't know, what do you think?  It seems to me there are
 some very Western, ethno-centric values being assigned to
 the different animals.

 Does this mean I didn't like my score?  I'm curious to hear
 your thoughts.

 The Tamri goats of Morocco have become adept at climbing
 the Argan trees to reach their food, the berries.  The
 goats literally climb the tree to get to the berries.
 Sometimes ten or more goats will climb the same tree.
 For a tree that only grows to be about 35 feet tall,
 that's a lot of goats.  Click 'HERE' to see these
 four amazing photos.
