There's a little fellow named Junior who hangs out at Tim Alley's 
Grocery Store. The owner Tim doesn't know what Junior's 
problem is, but the boys like to tease him. They say he is two 
bricks shy of a load, or two pickles shy of a barrel. To prove it, 
sometimes they offer Junior his choice between a nickel and a 
dime. 

He always takes the nickel, they say, because it's bigger.
One day after Junior grabbed the nickel, Tim got him off to one 
side and said, "Junior, those boys are making fun of you. They 
think you don't know the dime is worth more than the nickel. 
Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or what?"

Junior said, "Well, if I took the dime, they'd quit doing it!"

Phone Won't Stop Ringing? -- Here's What You Do. 

Leola Starling of Ribrock, Tenn., had a serious telephone problem. But 
unlike most people she did something about it. 
The brand-new $10 million Ribrock Plaza Motel opened nearby and had 
acquired almost the same telephone number as Leola. 
From the moment the motel opened, Leola was besieged by calls not for her. 
Since she had the same phone number for years, she felt that she had a 
case to persuade the motel management to change its number. 
Naturally, the management refused, claiming that it could not change its 
stationery. 
The phone company was not helpful, either. A number was a number, and just 
because a customer was getting someone else's calls 24 hours a day didn't 
make it responsible. After her pleas fell on deaf ears, Leola decided to 
take matters into her own hands. 

At 9 o'clock the phone rang. Someone from Memphis was calling the motel 
and asked for a room for the following Tuesday. Leola said, "No problem. 
How many nights?" 
A few hours later Dallas checked in. A secretary wanted a suite with two 
bedrooms for a week. Emboldened, Leola said the Presidential Suite on the 
10th floor was available for $600 a night. The secretary said that she 
would take it and asked if the hotel wanted a deposit. "No, that won't be 
necessary," Leola said. "We trust you." 
The next day was a busy one for Leola. In the morning, she booked an 
electric appliance manufacturers' convention for Memorial Day weekend, a 
college prom and a reunion of the 82nd Airborne veterans from World War 
II. 
She turned on her answering machine during lunchtime so that she could 
watch the O.J. Simpson trial, but her biggest challenge came in the 
afternoon when a mother called to book the ballroom for her daughter's 
wedding in June. 
Leola assured the woman that it would be no problem and asked if she would 
be providing the flowers or did she want the hotel to take care of it. The 
mother said that she would prefer the hotel to handle the floral 
arrangements. Then the question of valet parking came up. Once again Leola 
was helpful. "There's no charge for valet parking, but we always recommend 
that the client tips the drivers." 

Within a few months, the Ribrock Plaza Motel was a disaster area. 
People kept showing up for weddings, bar mitzvahs, and Sweet Sixteen 
parties and were all told there were no such events. 
Leola had her final revenge when she read in the local paper that the 
motel might go bankrupt. Her phone rang, and an executive from Marriott 
said, "We're prepared to offer you $200,000 for the motel." 
Leola replied. "We'll take it, but only if you change the telephone 
number."

The re-release of George Lucas' "Star Wars" raked in millions.
"This came as a relief to Princess Leia who had fallen on hard
times and was considering becoming a spokeswoman for Weight
Watchers and Ocean Spray." (Joshua Sostrin)

Says Paul Ecker, "Teenagers all over the country are asking the
same question: Who's Mark Hamil?"

The film was enhanced with even more special effects. "In a
related move, Sweden will re-release Ingmar Bergman's films
"enhanced with even more gloom,'" (Michael Edens)
