Fishing License

Now is the time. Needs are great. But your possibilities are greater.

FACEBOOK.COM/WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

773.213.4597

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."

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. 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.” FACEBOOK.COM/WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

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 By Lauren Strec sacrifice what I have worked so hard for or do 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.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young. Henry Ford, early 20th century industrialist

Shelton the student asks: I just found out my college roommate is gay and I feel a little weird sharing a room with him. You ever worry about any of those guys you warm up to on cold nights? Wino: Shelton what in carnation are you trying to say to me you little pecker head?! If you want to experiment with your buddy don’t go trying to poke around in my business. I don’t give a sh*t how cold it is, some dude comes rubbing up on me at night my ass is puckering up tighter that a camel’s butt in a sandstorm!

Sabrina the psychic asks: Every time I read your column I get a special feeling about your aurora that makes me feel like you soul is touched by warmth and light. I would like for you to come in and see me so we can discuss this special place further. Wino: Lady you sound to me like you are nuttier than a squirrel turd. But if you really want, I’ll come in and see you and I will show you a real warm special place and after about an hour of me spanking your behind aint no doubt in my mind we will both be seeing the light.

My friend thinks he’s smart, he said onions are the only food that make you cry.

Jack the mechanic asks: I don’t suppose you have any advice for the Chicago Bears and their fans this season?

So I threw a coconut at his face.

Wino: Another week, another boatload of bullsh*t. Let me ask you a question Jack. You're trapped in a room with an angry grizzly bear, a hungry Lion, and a fan of the Chicago Bears. You have a gun with two bullets. What should you do? I vote for animal rights.

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/WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

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. 773.213.4597

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..."

Man On A Desert Island

A man of many vices, stranded on a desert island for over 10 years, sees a speck on the horizon. "It's not a ship," he thinks to himself and as it gets closer, he sees it's not a small boat or a raft. Suddenly, emerging from the surf comes a beautiful woman in a wet suit and scuba gear. She asks how long it's been since he had a cigarette, and he says, "Ten years." She opens a waterproof pocket on her left sleeve and pulls out a pack. He lights one up and says, "Great!" "And how long has it been since you've had a sip of good whiskey?" she asks. Trembling, he says it has been 10 years. She unzips her right sleeve and pulls out a flask. 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?" With tears in his eyes, the man falls to his knees and sobs, "Oh, heavens! Don't tell me you've got golf clubs in there too."

Redneck Buys A Chainsaw A red neck walks into a hardware store and asks for a chain saw that will cut 6 trees in one hour. The salesman recommends the top of the line model. The red neck is suitably impressed, and buys it. The next day he brings it back and says, "This chainsaw is defective. It would only cut down 1 tree and it took ALL DAMN DAY!" The salesman takes the chain saw, starts it up to see what's wrong, and the red neck asks, "What's that noise?

Pirate At A Bar 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, "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."

Sick and Wrong!!! 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/WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

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. 773.213.4597

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!!"

TAT T L E TA L E S

Love Story By Rob Christiansen

I’m on a bus to the Water Tower to see a horse carriage driver. I also used to be one. I had forgotten about the civil service test I took and was prepared to live an alternate lifestyle. “Alternate lifestyle” means “horse carriage driver.” Minerva was to have been just another girl feeding my horse at the stand. I called Jeannie from work yesterday and made this a “date.” I would have improved my communication skills at home if I had told Minnie. I shouldn’t have called Jeannie. I should have just bought a bag of carrots and appeared at the stand. The bus ride on LSD is an iconic Chicago event and I reflect off the lake. I wasn’t asked to work today, Saturday, with the rest of OWCP Fiscal. I’m not worried since I’m contracted for a year. Everything is for a year. Minnie and I have a one-year lease. Do leases control relationships? In my salad days I dressed a horse. I was also “undressing” Jeannie. That remark is uncalled for. I have a soul mate now. Minnie encourages communication but she isn’t thrilled that I write in bed, especially when doing so precludes my “topping off the tank” on weeknights, even though I can be counted on to “fill ’er up” on weekends. Those remarks are really uncalled for, but I’m leaving them in to preserve my past. I maintain a journal ever since the piano movers found my “3rd Man Theme” sheet music and I wrote about that in the third person. I wrote as “Adam” in the first person. I covered the end of the world in the last person. Minnie is the second person, lying beside me, watching the news, occasionally smoking. I use fake names to protect the innocent. Sometimes, I unwittingly invent a name, like “Hilery.” “Minerva” might be a faker, for all I know, faking it all weekend. That remark was totally uncalled for. I’m really not an animal, although I probably smelled like a horse when we met. We met at Burton’s, but subsequent to that I only saw her when she dropped by the stand and fed my horse. I called her when I became a G-man. We found a place, but after the contents of Life settled I felt half-empty. Eddie, the manager, is standing on the corner drumming up rides. Two drivers are scribbling in notebooks, but all drivers in my sight are standing protectively beside their horses and waiting for rides. Jerry Silk is getting his shoes shined. I’m off the bus, spying from the west side of Michigan Ave. I don’t see Jeannie. I’ll avoid Eddie and wonder if I just missed her. Minnie has worked only in offices and said she wasn’t impressed by my transition from the horse carriages. Jeannie told me the

FACEBOOK.COM/WHATSUPXTRAMAGAZINE

opposite. And I must have been born on that bus. It’s obvious that she’s the girl for whom I would give up writing in my journal and with whom I would tear up the sheets. Just like we used to do, before I quit the horse carriages, before I moved in with Minnie, before I started the bedtime journal out of complacency. “The piano movers found Nort’s ‘3rd Man Theme’ sheet music behind his piano. He was surprised but not overjoyed. It’s not like he knew it was missing. Still, ‘3rd Man Theme’ has a new home where it belongs inside the piano bench, just as Nort, headed west on Chestnut for so many months spent anonymously lost behind a horse until Minerva found him, has a new home with Minerva.” Her carriage is currently second in line, soon to depart for the horizon. She stands resolutely by Matilda and holds the reins in one hand. I forgot how disciplined Jeannie can be. “Did you bring a carrot?” she jokingly asks me in a Boston accent. Her lips succumb / to wine coolers at one. Her hair rates / with Phoebe Cates’. No breasts are better / to sell a sweater. Actually, her breasts probably don’t belong / in the song. Minnie’s are worth singing about, too, but that’s not the point. Writing in bed challenges the fact that I’m an animal. I should use the bed as our playground and never as an escritoire. I remember my mechanics with Jeannie and I should pounce on Minnie right now. Stale smoke in this room deters me, probably. Jeannie doesn’t smoke. Maybe I crave Jeannie because I can’t have her, like a horse that neighs at the carrot because he can’t have an apple. Because, because, because, because, because. Actually, the horse will accept either without complaint. I should be the horse. “I have a box of salt,” I reply. She’ll have to do a 180° and get a schedule like mine. I can’t support her. Maybe the florist apprenticeship she mentioned will have become a full-time job by the time Minnie and I have to decide on renewing the lease. I say, “Matilda looks handsome.” Jeannie is dressed in a tuxedo and top hat. She does not look like Charlie Chaplin. “Handsome is as handsome does,” she replies, laughing. She has a “joie de vivre” and will earn $300 this weekend in commissions and tips. Why did I quit this job again? She talks animatedly about her apprenticeship cutting and arranging flowers. The experience can blossom into an ace up her sleeve. Eddie utters, “Hi, Nort,” walking by with a ride in tow. He seats them in Roger’s carriage and off they go. The others advance along the curb as he puts his arm around my shoulder and Jeannie laughs. My horse, Swede, got away from me on Eddie’s watch. That’s why I avoided him. I had told Minnie of my embarrassment only because it’s easy to talk to her and she’s my rock. Tonight’s movie night. We’re seeing “Ironweed.” Soon it becomes clear / Jeannie’s ride is here.
