Expensive Fishing Trip

Husband and wife went on a fishing trip.
They rented all the equipment: the reels, the rods, the wading suits, the rowboat, the car, and even a cabin in the woods. They spend a fortune.
The first day they go fishing, but they don’t catch anything.
The same thing happens on the second day, and on the third day.
It goes on like this until finally, on the last day of their vacation, the wife catches a fish.
As they’re driving home they’re really depressed. Husband turns to his wife and says, "Do you realize that this one lousy fish we caught cost us fifteen hundred dollars?"
The wife says, "Wow! It’s a good thing we didn’t catch any more!

Spider monkey uses garden hose to flee Indiana zoo

A spider monkey used a garden hose to scale the wall of a moat at a Michigan City Indiana zoo before being captured at a nearby boat dealership.
One of two spider monkeys recently added to the Washington Park Zoo broke out of its enclosure this week while workers were cleaning the moat, which had been emptied of water.
Zoo Director Johnny Martinez says workers had figured the monkeys would remain inside their enclosure during the cleaning despite the lack of water in the moat to act as a barricade.
Once past the moat Wednesday, the escaped monkey jumped onto the roof of a water filtration plant. Martinez says zoo staff recaptured it at the dealership atop a white and blue speedboat.
Martinez says the monkey is sociable and posed no danger to people.

Mysterious 'Gas Men' dole out cash at the pumps

Plainville, Conn. They don't climb tall buildings in a single bound, but the mysterious "Gas Men" are super heroes to some fed-up motorists. The unknown duo were dressed in sunglasses, baseball caps, khakis and matching green golf shirts when they gave Gayle Kilburn a $100 bill on Thursday as she filled up her car at a Citgo in Plainville.
They also handed her a card that read "Re-Fueling Our Community" and was signed "The Gas Men."Kilburn says she was stunned by the gesture and at first thought it was a stunt with Monopoly money. She later realized it was real cash and used it to fill her tank.
She said the Gas Men also helped five or six other customers.
