Ninety-two year old Andy Rooney will bid his fans adieu on Sunday's edition of 60 Minutes after 1,096"Visits From Andy Rooney" and three decades of complaining, kvetching, and harping about everything from gas prices tolong lines at the DMV. 

* Andy has been around for so long, when he was hired the stopwatch at the start of the show was  a sun dial.

* No one can say he's not exiting stage right with class.  He's donated his typewriter to the Smithsonian Museum and his eyebrows to Sy Sperling's Institute of Hair.

A man in California shot his neighbor after the neighbor refused to redirect spotlights that were shining into the shooter's master bedroom.  It wasn't the lights that pushed the guy over the edge -- it was those hand shadows of bunnies while he was trying to make love to his wife.  

The first long-awaited Dreamliner has rolled off the Boeing assembly line, destined to join the fleet of All Nippon Airlines.  The new aircraft features space-age technology and a completely re-configured cockpit with a tube that the pilot blows into and if he's not sober, the thing won't start.

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.
