Greetings, Oh Faithful Readers!

Intel is working on perceptual computing that senses emotions and body language. Which means that computers will be able to be programmed to dump out of the porn sites men are looking at when their wives walk in the room unexpectedly.

A Japanese man who was switched at birth was awarded $317,000. While the man is upset about being raised by a different family, it could have been worse. At least they didn’t hand him over to Woody Allen.

The U.S. is offering to destroy all of Syria’s chemical weapons. Isn’t that how we ended up getting into Iraq?

Apparently they don’t like the way colleges make them live through the Great Depression while they are paying off their college loans for the next 30 years.

Researchers say that acupuncture can help with people who reflexively gag at the dentist’s office. Of course, it doesn’t do much when the gagging happens when the patients are given their bill.

Researchers say that acupuncture can help with people who reflexively gag at the dentist’s office. An easier way to prevent gagging in the dentist’s office is to change the radio station to a channel that doesn’t play any Justin Bieber songs.

A new beer glass has been designed to help Baby Boomers over 60 control their drinking with fewer spills. Or maybe they could prevent those spills by drinking a little less beer.

A Washington State man who lived frugally passed away at age 98 and left $187 Million in a secret fortune to charity. He lived so frugally, he stocked only generic mustard and not Grey Poupon in his Bentley.

David Beckham says he was subjected to humiliating sex acts as part of hazing when he was a teen soccer player. Although he wouldn’t say what the act was, it turns out that kicking a soccer ball has nothing to do with the origin of the term “Bend it like Beckham.”

Richie Incognito has been suspended but is still being paid by the Miami Dolphins. This guy is good. He has even figured out how to bully the team’s owner.

A Dallas Cowboys fan was beaten unconscious by four Raiders fans at the game played on Thanksgiving. People were shocked. How did four Raiders fans get their probation changed to allow them to travel out of state?

A Dallas Cowboys fan was beaten unconscious by four Raiders fans at the game played on Thanksgiving. The four Raiders fans were immediately taken into custody to try to show the defense how they did it.

Rough Trade is opening a 15,000 square foot record store in Brooklyn. Which is big news for anyone still living in 1974.

Rough Trade is opening a 15,000 square foot record store in Brooklyn. The hardest part is explaining to anyone under 40 what a record is.

President Obama has signed a bill allowing 300 research chimps to retire. The only problem is that those are the apes who were in charge of creating the Obamacare website.

President Obama met with fasting immigration reform advocates. The reason he met with them is because the sequestration doesn’t give him enough money to be able to have any of his meetings catered.

President Obama and his family say they may stay in Washington, D.C. after he leaves office in 2017. Especially if he is replaced by a Republican so he can stop by the White House every day and say “Not so easy, is it?”

That’s it for now, Oh Faithful Readers! I hope you all had a very Happy Thanksgiving. You have had four days now to digest all that turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie so it should be safe once again to read these jokes. Now we have less than a month until Christmas. So between shopping and sending out cards, you still should have just enough time to make sure to send the love!
