Someone Paid $203,150 for a Purse

Yes, an anonymous bidder paid $203,150 at auction for a purse. Well, not just any purse, a Birkin, the hard-to-get handbag fetish of celebrities and needy rich ladies the world over. And not just any Birkin, a Herm�s Exceptional Collection Shiny Rouge H Porosus Crocodile 30 cm Birkin Bag with Solid 18K White Gold & Diamond Hardware. Oh, obviously that is worth as much as a house or a college education. Surely!

The bag sold by Heritage Auctions in Dallas (where else would a woman spend $200K on a handbag) and broke a record for the sale of a handbag at auction (the record holder is below). Actually, the record was broken four times in one auction.

There were three other bags that went for $113,525, $95,600, and $80,663 which each successively took the record from each other.

JOKE: Jesus and Satan were having an argument

Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who managed to get the most out of their computer. This had been going on for days and God was tired of hearing all of the bickering. God said, "Cool it. I'm going to set up a test that will run two hours and I will judge who does the better job."   So they sat at their keyboards and typed away. They moused away. They did spreadsheets. They wrote reports. They sent faxes. The sent out e-mail. They sent out e-mail with attachments. They downloaded. They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They did every known job.   But just a few minutes before the two hours were up, lightening flashed across the sky. The thunder rolled and the rains came down hard and, of course, the electricity went off. Satan was upset. He fumed and fussed and he ranted and raved. all to no avail. The electricity stayed off. But, after a bit the rains stopped and the electricity came back on.   Satan screamed, "I lost it all when the power went off. What am I going to do? What happened to Jesus' work?"   Jesus just sat and smiled.   Again Satan asked about the work that Jesus had done. As Jesus turned his computer back on, the screen glowed and when He pushed 'Print', all His work was there. "How did He do it?" Satan asked.   God smiled and said, "Jesus saves!".

Man standing next to his own tombstone shot dead by police


A Nevada man was shot dead by a police officer just a few away from his own burial plot.

David Pendleton, 77, who authorities believe was distraught over the death of his wife, pointed a loaded gun at the deputy who was responding to an anonymous tip. Gardnerville Police Sgt. Jim Halsey said police believe Pendleton was the caller who reported a dead body outside a white truck at Gardnerville Cemetery.

"We don't know ultimately what his intent was, whether it was to shoot himself or be shot by the deputy," Halsey said. Pendleton's shotgun was "fully loaded and ready to be fired,"he added.


Pendleton's wife was buried in the plot and his own headstone, engraved with his name and date of birth, was just feet from Pendleton when he was shot. Pendleton had threatened people, including police officers, in the past, the sheriff's office said.Sheriff's Deputy Richard Koontz, who shot Pendleton,was justified, according to authorities.
