Based on a best-seller, the  movie "The Help" is doing surprisingly well at the box office. Arnold Schwartzenegger is reportedly attending Mass again and praying that tell-all books written by maids doesn't become a fad. 

Burger King, continuing its quest for a healthier menu, has added old-fashioned oatmeal to its breakfast choices.  Must be Quaker Oats.  When Ronald McDonald made fun of the King, he turned the other cheek.

Barack Obama's uncle was arrested in Framingham, Massachusetts and charged with drunk driving.  The booking procedure took longer than usual because he couldn't produce what they considered an authentic enough birth certificate.     

A Scottish mortuary has developed an eco-friendly machine that liquefies dead bodies in three hours and emits fewer green house gasses than cremation.  American scientists who've tested the device says it works even faster on bodies that have had a head start like, say, Mel Gibson's or Lindsay Lohan's.

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.
