[Tipper Rating: PG - contains explicit parental guidance]

Heard from a friend whose family went on a trip to Disneyland where they
saw the new attraction ToonTown.  As they were going through the tour,
they encountered Mickey's house.  They went through it, and the friend's
little sister (five years old or so) said "Mommy, Mickey's house doesn't
have a kitchen.  Where does he eat?"

And the mother, being quick-witted, responded "why, at Minie's house!".

They continued through the attraction, and the young'un said "Mommy, Mickey
doesn't have a bedroom either.  Where does he sleep?"

And the mother said "never you mind, dear".


[Tipper Rating: G - I don't get it]

Now that the crisis in Waco is settled, the Justice Department
has embarked on a search for other Branch Davidian cultists from
across the country.

Initially, they were going to put their pictures on milk cartons,
but then decided match books would be more appropiate.


[Tipper Rating: X - expresses dangerously realistic thoughts about public
officials and has a bad word, too!]

 A little boy wanted $100.00 badly and prayed for 2 weeks, but nothing
 happened.  Then he decided to write God a letter requesting $100.00.

 When the Postal Authorities received the letter to "God, USA",
 they decided to send it to President Clinton.  The President was so
 impressed, touched, and amused that he directed  his Secretary to send
 the little boy a $5.00 bill.

 The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a
 thank you note to God, which read:  "Dear God, Thank you very much
 for sending me the money, however, I noticed that for some reason
 you had to send it through Washington, and, as usual, those bastards
 deducted $95.00."
