German scientists in Berlin have developed an automobile that operates itself without the aid of a human driver.  Unfortunately, it quickly seems top adapt the bad habits of its owner.  Already, one was pulled over and arrested for driving under the influence of WD-40.

A woman airline passenger is suing Homeland Security because her Afro was searched at the Atlanta Airport.   Their own fault.  She probably wouldn't have objected if they hadn't used a pitchfork.  

A couple on vacation in Colorado claimed they had no idea where $10 million worth of cocaine found in their rental car during a routine traffic stop came from.  The name alone should have raised some suspicion -- "Across the Ally From the Alamo Car Rental"?

After an amazing 40 years and 10,463 episodes, ABC's "All My Children" is leaving the air.  Fittingly, its replacement will be a cooking show called "The Chew," designed especially to teach the average "All My Children" fan how to get used to wearing dentures.

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.
