On Sunday, following a centuries-old sacred ritual, thousands of pilgrims from many nations all over the globe excitedly gathered to follow a time-honored and hallowed tradition.  But enough about Prince William's wedding.

Two men paid a new York cabbie $5,000 to drive them 2448 miles to Los Angeles from LaGuardia Airport.  The record-setting journey burned through 111 tanks of gas, 30 quarts of oil and 594 Christmas tree air-fresheners.

Compiled from Bob's newsletter "Funnyside Up" published in 2000. This is a yuck and chuckle-filled stroll down memory lane to a time before the Bush administration had inflicted its damage -- a time before the search for WMDs and Osama bin Laden.
