Computer hackers somehow entered the Fox News Twitter account.  The U.S. Secret Service is investigating the leading suspects, a group that calls themselves "The Script Kiddies."  Evidence of the break-in began to emerge when readers noticed that political items that Fox claims are "Fair and Balanced," actually were fair and balanced.

Former IMF chief Dominique Strauss Kahn, now faces allegations by Paris magazine writer Tristane Banon that he sexually assaulted her during an 
interview.  Surete investigators were shocked at some of their discoveries in Strauss Kahn's family history.  For instance, did Arnold Schwarzenegger ever mention that he had an older brother?  

A recent survey indicates that fast food meccas like McDonald's and Wendy's get low marks on taste tests.  Another survey showed that people who agree to participate in surveys that require sampling fast food got low marks in high school. 

Burger King is considering a plan to offer beer and wine after 4 pm.  Hope it works out better than the plan McDonald's tried in the 1960s to go completely Scottish and offer the "Big Mac, Fries, Scotch & Soda Combo."

As if their nuclear program wasn't worrisome enough, Iran now plans to send a Capuchin monkey into space next month.  They preferred to use a different experimental animal, but Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had too may speeches scheduled for August.

WakiLeaks: History Declassified 2000 (Vol. One) is now available on Kindle for $2.99

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. See what we were laughing at back then, who was in the news and who had yet to enter rehab -- which NFL stars had yet to do time in the Gray Bar Hotel.
