Find it On-Line

I found this funny little story in the September 2008 Reader's Digest. It was part of an article called "Our 50 Funniest (True!) Stories." It was a story submitted by reader Catherine Burns. Enjoy!

My 50-something friend Nancy and I decided to introduce her mother to the magic of the Internet. Our first move was to access the popular Ask Jeeves site, and we told her it could answer any question she had. Nancy's mother was very skeptical until Nancy said, "It's true, Mom. Think of something to ask it."
As I sat with my fingers poised over the keyboard, Nancy's mother thought for a minute, then responded, "How is Aunt Helen feeling?"
