"JOKE OF THE MONTH"

The rules are simple to win: No "xxx" jokes, sorry. Kit Menkin cannot win  (relatives, friends and employees can enter and win). Please note, if in the decision of the judges there is no "best" joke, a previous month may be included, and like in horseshoes, there are no ties. Winners of previous months can also win a second or third time - There is no limit.

Please send me your favorite joke. The first one to send it, not only gets the credit, but a good bottle of wine or a box of chocolates (the winner’s choice).


Winner for February

Larry Faber, Mountain View, California

" Nevada Winter "

The Elko Indians asked their Chief, Dog-in-Water, in October if the Nevada winter was going to be cold or not. Not really knowing an answer, the chief replied that the winter was going to be cold and that the members of the village were to collect wood to be prepared.

Being a good leader, he got on his computer, found the National Weather Service telephone number and called him in his cell telephone: "Is this winter going to be cold?"

The man on the phone responded, "This winter was going to be quite cold indeed."

So Chief Dog-in-Water went back to encourage his people to collect even more wood to be prepared.

A month later he called the National Weather Service on his cell again, "Is it going to be a very cold winter?"

"Yes," the man replied, "it's going to be a very cold winter." So the Chief goes back to his people and orders them to go out and find every scrap of wood they can.

Two weeks later, he calls the National Weather Service on his cell again. "Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?"

"Absolutely," the man replies, "the Elko Indians are collecting wood like crazy."



This is his second time. He also won in August, 2000

"This is quite a hard fought battle for all of Kits' jokesters," he says. " We're constantly scouring our e-mail for anything that might tickle his funny bone. I'm very happy to be a two time winner. I want to thank my Mom and Dad and all those judges with a superior sense of humor."

Larry Faber is president of Input Optics, Inc., a Silicon Valley company that has serviced the Dental market form many years, but has also expanded its operations to help small and medium sized business with design and administration of their systems and networks. "We have found that many companies relying on their networks, don't have the internal resources or expertise to keep them running smoothly. By outsourcing their IT department, we can give them the help they need when they need it without being a burden to their budgets. From new equipment and functionaity to repairs and data recovery, if it's hooked up to a computer, we can deal with it."

Larry is a graduate of UC Berkeley and has lived and worked in the Bay Area since moving here from Detroit in 1963. He's a die hard Cal fan and has season tickets to basketball and football. He is an avid golfer, still plays softball and has coached in Little Leage for 10 years as well as coaching at the high school level in softball. His wife, Michele, is an interior designer at Ethan Allen and his daughter and son are high school students who acutally attend the same high school from which Larry graduated.
