Fishing License

A couple of young boys were fishing at their special pond off the beaten track. All of a sudden, the Game Warden jumped out of the bushes. Immediately, one of the boys threw his rod down and started running through the woods like a bat out of hell. The Game Warden was hot on his heels. After about a half mile, the young man stopped and stooped over with his hands on his thighs to catch his breath, so the Game Warden finally caught up to him. "Let's see yer fishin' license, Boy!" the Warden gasped. With that, the boy pulled out his wallet and gave the Game Warden a valid fishing license. "Well, son," said the Game Warden, "you must be about as dumb as a box of rocks! You don't have to run from me if you have a valid license!" "Yes, sir," replied the young guy, "but my friend back there, well, he don't have one." FACEBOOK.COM/WASSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

THE LIGHTER SIDE

Start At The Very Beginning ... When the new patient was settled comfortably on the couch, the psychiatrist began his therapy session. "I'm not aware of your problem," the doctor said. "So perhaps, you should start at the very beginning." "Of course," replied the patient. "In the beginning, I created the heavens and the earth..."

He takes a long swig and says, "Absolutely fantastic!" At this point she starts to unzip the front of her wet suit, and asks, "How long has it been since you've played around?"

News & Stuff The President's White House Photographer Tells How to Take a Picture

It's The Year Of The Cicada!

In its "How-To" issue, Bloomberg Businessweek surveyed 46 experts for advice on such subjects as how to eat crow (a recipe), walk like a zombie, talk to a dictator, lie, and how to live on snacks. After shuffling through all the tips, the advice of Pete Souza, official White House Photographer for President Obama, on how to take a picture might be the most helpful for budding photographers. His few easy suggestions may just turn you from an amateur to a savvy pro. * If there's clutter in the background step to the right or left until it's not in the picture. Take pictures from a higher or lower level so they look different. * Candids are more memorable than posed pictures. Watch and wait for an opportunity. * Get in close. Photos are more interesting when the subject, be it man, woman or cat, fills a good part of the frame. * Early morning and late afternoon light is best for taking pictures. Rain, snow or fog can lead to memorable shots. In sunlight, use your flash to fill in shadows and add a twinkle of light to the subject's eyes. * The most important tip: have fresh batteries with you at all times. If your camera is out of juice or the memory card is full, you've missed the moment. * Keep your iPhone handy. He uses his to take shots on Air Force One and to grab shots of Bo. So grab your camera, get out there, and catch your next money shot!

15-Minute Refresher Nap with Coffee?

If you need a quick recharge during your busy day,try this unusual method recommended by caring.com, the caffeine nap. Set the stage for your nap by darkening the room and finding a comfortable place to lay down. Make sure to set the alarm clock if time is crucial.

Then, drink a cup of coffee. Seriously. After approximately15 or 20 minutes the coffee will help you wake up refreshed. Disclaimer: Don’t try this while operating a motor vehicle.

Entomologists say there's a big brood of 17-year cicadas which have been biding their time under ground. According to these experts, the cicadas will emerge along the East Coast and pop up as far north as New York City. The harmless, but loud insects will surface all the way from the Carolinas to the Hudson Valley of New York. The insects will emerge in the South in April and May and in the cooler Northern states during late May and June.

Gun Owners Invest in Self-Defense Insurance All around America, gun shops have seen a substantial increase in sales. People who never wanted a gun in the past have opted to purchase one before the new gun rules took effect.

Although, the questions on many of these new gun owners minds is whether their homeowners' insurance will cover them if they were to shoot in self-defense. Generally, it won't. Most standard home and auto policies contain a liability clause that excludes coverage for injuries or damage caused by an intentional act such as firing a gun, even in selfdefense. A few policies, however, have an exception for "selfdefense" or "reasonable force." It covers "bodily injury resulting from the use of reasonable force by an insured to protect person's life or property." But the exception is rare. National Rifle Association coverage, underwritten by Lloyd's of London, offers two options. For $165 per year, a member receives $100,000 in combined liability coverage for civil defense costs plus criminal defense reimbursement, if acquitted. For $254 annually, the combined coverage jumps to $250,000. Self-Defense Shield protection offers three benefit levels beginning at $127 and up. Insurers say the coverage is inexpensive because those who buy it aren't the kinds of people who typically have homeowners insurance. CHECK OUT OUR NEW WEBSITE @ WWW.WHATSUPXTRA.COM

Playing Golf A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eys, and bows down in prayer. His friend says, “Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man.” The man then replies, “Yeah, well we were married 35 years.”

JUNE HOROSCOPE ARIES: You can rely on intuition to handle a situation with your workers. Don't come across as rigid or inflexible or they'll think you're just making it all hard work.

LIBRA: Ah, lucky Libra, the stars shine brightly on you this month. But remember, to be lucky in love and in your job, you'll also have to add some effort of your own.

TAURUS: Getting along with teammates and working for a cause brings harmony and provides a higher sense of purpose. Finding meaning in your job is always important.

SCORPIO: Don't assume you can speak out of turn without it backfiring. You could get a name for being indiscreet, especially if the information is highly-sensitive.

GEMINI: You sparkle and your eyes twinkle because you've got something magic up your sleeve. Everyone knows it and wishes they could be an insider and have a taste. CANCER: Be careful what you say because others take your words at face value. Avoid embellishing the facts with your own information, which isn't necessarily factual. LEO: Father's Day is the big event of June. Be sure to visit your dad, send a card or call. You might also remember someone who has been a father figure during your lifetime. VIRGO: Summer is upon us and you're suddenly energized to get healthy and shed some pounds. It's a good idea in any month, especially before buying a swim suit. FACEBOOK.COM/WASSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

SAGITTARIUS: The song says, "Summertime and the livin' is easy," though it's not always that way. You can still arrange opportunities to get outside, relax and have fun. CAPRICORN: Your future looks bright, but it's a competitive world out there and you might not achieve your goal this time. But it's coming, so keep on keeping on. AQUARIUS: It's vacation time and you deserve some time off. Plan a break that's not stressful or unaffordable. Sometimes vacationing at home is the best treat of all. PISCES: A few issues are pending that might be worrisome, but you should have favorable outcomes through the end of the year. Opportunities will be knocking at your door, so watch for them.

The BlackBerry Reinvented New App Player Runs On In recent years, Research in Motion has seen its once dominant position in the smartphone market decline. Now, it thinks its new Z10 smartphone and its BB10 operating system can change that. In fact, it has changed its corporate name from RIM to BlackBerry. The OS isn't an upgrade, it's a clean break that is so different it will take longtime BlackBerry users a few minutes to get used to it. So what features will the Z10 offer? It's an all-touchscreen device with a 4.2-inch display and looks a good deal like rival phones. It has no physical navigation system and no keyboard. Wall Street Journal analyst Walter Mossberg says it feels good in his hand and he likes the virtual keyboard, the camera and the way it gathers all messages into a single hub. BlackBerry CEO Thorsten Heins says the phone's ability to run multiple apps at the same time, and a predictive tool that chooses words as you type, will win over consumers unfamiliar with the device, as well as sway users in the government. He also says the hyperspeed innovation cycle will make it harder for Apple iOS to compete with the Z10. The new BlackBerry Q10 is scheduled to be out on retail shelves in June. The BlackBerry Q10 incorporates the kind of physical keyboard that fans of the old BlackBerry loved. USA Today's Edward Baig says it felt like a real BlackBerry keyboard when he started to use it.

Computers And Phones

A new app will allow games to run on all devices (laptops to telephones) and on Macs or PCs. With the BlueStacks App Player installed on your machines, you can play a mobile app on your desktop display. Or play a great Android game on your touchpad. Many more apps are available for mobile devices than for desktops and laptops. Apple's App Store has more than 800,000, and Google Play offers 700,000. Today, the most desirable apps, such as those for computer games, aren't available for desktop and laptop computers. But with the App Player, they get a whole new stage. For example, BlueStacks' App Player can run Android apps designed for a mobile phone on most computers. Game developers will not have to change the way they work because the App Player doesn't require them to change their code in any way, says Markus Kassulke, CEO of HandyGames. That makes virtually every game in development for any device available to run through App Player -- a gamers' crossover dream. Eventually, App Player software may also run on TVs, game consoles and set-top boxes. The software could predict a future where mobile apps can be used on any device or operating system, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

La La’s Love Letters Dear La La, I am in a relationship with a guy I truly believe I may be in love with. He is really close to his family and has shared with me that he plans to marry and raise a family close to his parents and siblings. I just got offered my dream job, but it is 3 states away! Do I sacrifice what I have worked so hard for or do By Lauren Strec I just take a deep breath and walk away? Hawaii Harriet Dear Hawaii, Take the job. If you don’t, you’re going to always wonder, “what could have been,” and may even resent him down the road, if things work out. And what if things don’t work out?! Then it all would have been for nothing. You say you “may” be in love with this guy. If this was a certain thing, I wonder if you would be questioning to leave. Just some food for thought. Suggest to him to move with you, and tell him he can always come back if he really needs his family in close proximity. If he really cares for YOU, he should at least give it a try. Dear La La, I have been dating this girl for about a month now and every time we have fooled around it has been dark in the room. So, the other day for the first time she began undressing in front of me and there it was...a big hairy mole on her belly! I almost threw up in my mouth. Can I suggest that she go to a doctor and have that growth removed or would that come across as shallow? Ewwww, please help! Ground Hog Dear Hog, Dude, you’re an ass. This girl obviously is self conscious about it, hence the dark lights. If you’re just in it to bang, you’re in no place to make suggestions to suit your superficial standards. Now, if you really dig this chick, I think you’ll eventually find that the “Holy Moley” will become less apparent once you fall for her more. Down the road, the topic of health and cancer prevention would be a more appropriate conversation. Dear LaLa, My husband is constantly nagging me to give up my flannel pajamas and head to Lovers Lane for something a bit sexier. I just don't really get the point. If "love is blind", then why do men love lingerie so much? Hunter Jane Dear Jane, You’re over-analyzing this. You mean to tell me that when your hubby gets dressed up for a night out, you just go, “meh?” It’s nice to look at, yeah? Men are very visual creatures, and your husband is attracted to you! That’s awesome. Half of marriages end in divorce, and your guy still wants to see you all sexified. It won’t kill you to do it, it will make him happy, and you may even come to find that you enjoy how turned on he’s going to get. Plus, you’ll always have some collateral to get him to do things around the house. Dear La La, My wife and I have been married for about a year now and we have a really great time when we go out together. About a month ago we happened to walk into a bar on their karaoke night and she was so excited she insisted we stay. She claimed she was the "karaoke queen" in college and I was in for a treat. OMG...she sounded like two alley cats having a fierce showdown! She had such a good time (at everyone else's ex-

pense) that now she wants to go every week. Is it my duty as her loving husband to break the news or do I just invest in a good pair of earplugs, grin and bear it? Joe Dear Joe, Aw, that poor thing! Ignorance is bliss, and don’t ruin it for her. There’s a few simple pleasures in life that excite us, and she has found something. Every karaoke night has at least one or two tone-deaf people in the lineup, and unfortunately she is one of them. It’s no big deal, and usually other karaoke-ers expect this. Here’s a suggestion: find an inexpensive singing class at your local community college or online, and ask her if she’d be interested to enroll, to “hone her craft.” If she’s down, let the teacher be the one to tweak her delivery.

Pirate At A Bar

Beer Garden with TV’s and Bags

A pirate was talking to a land-lover in a bar. The land-lover noticed that, like any self-respecting pirate, this guy had a peg leg, a hook in place of one of his hands and a patch over one eye. The land-lover just had to find out how the pirate got in such bad shape. He asked the pirate,

Daily Specials

"How did you loose your leg?" The pirate responded, "I lost me leg in a battle off the coast of Jamaica!" His new acquaintance was still curious so he asked, "What about you hand. Did you loose it at the same time?" "No," answered the pirate. "I lost it to the sharks off the Florida Keys." Finally, the land-lover asked, "I notice you also have an eye patch. How did you loose your eye? The pirate answered, "I was sleeping on a beach when a seagull flew over and crapped right in me eye." The land-lover asked, "How could a little seagull crap make you loose your eye?" The pirate snapped, "It was the day after I got me hook!"

Collecting Snails For The Dinner Party

Happy Father’s Day

A wife and her husband were having a dinner party for some important guests. The wife was very excited about this and wanted everything to be perfect. At the very last minute, she realized that she didn't have any snails for the dinner party, so she asked her husband to run down to the beach with the bucket to gather some snails. Very grudgingly he agreed. He took the bucket, walked out the door, down the steps, and out to the beach. As he was collecting the snails , he noticed a beautiful woman strolling alongside the water just a little further down the beach. He kept thinking to himself, "Wouldn't it be great if she would even just come down and talk to me?" He went back to gathering the snails. All of a sudden he looked up, and the beautiful woman was standing right over him. They started talking and she invited him back to her place. They ended up spending the night together. At seven o'clock the next morning he woke up and exclaimed, "Oh no!!! My wife's dinner party!!!" He gathered all his clothes, put them on real fast, grabbed his bucket, and ran out the door. He ran down the beach all the way to his apartment. He ran up the stairs of his apartment. He was in such a hurry that when he got to the top of the stairs, he dropped the bucket of snails. There were snails all down the stairs. The door opened just then, with a very angry wife standing in the door way wondering where he's been all this time. He looked at the snails all down the steps, then he looked at her, then back at the snails and said, "Come on guys, we're almost there!!"

3 PIGS One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class. She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home. She read, "...And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said, "Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?" One little boy raised his hand and said, "I think he said "'Holy Sh*t! A talking pig!'"

Blondes Finish Jigsaw Puzzle A group of blondes walk into a bar. One of the women tells the bartender to line up a row of drinks for all of them. The gals lift their glasses and toast, “Here’s to 51 days!” and they proceed to down their drinks. Once again, they tell the bartender to “line ‘em up”, and once again they toast 51 days and down their drinks. The bartender says, “I don’t get it. Why in the world are you toasting 51 days?” One of the blondes explains, “We just finished a jigsaw puzzle. It had written on the box ‘2-4 years,’ but we finished it in 51 days!” FACEBOOK.COM/WASSUPXTRAMAGAZINE
