For a guy who was known for wearing a flashy uniform with shiny medals, Moammar Kadaffi is turning out to be a wizard when it comes to blending in.  Only a few spectators noticed when he stood between New Gingrich and Ron Paul at the Reagan Library on Wednesday night.

Firefighters in Texas stood by helplessly as water to fight the out-of-control wildfires ran out.  It graphically recalls the ancient lament from The Ancient Mariner so familiar to every English major -- "Oil, oil everywhere and not a drop to squirt."

While his political credentials appear sound, Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman appears to have a name recognition problem.  84% of GOP voters surveyed identified the Huntsman as one of those all-purpose utility tools used by outdoorsmen.

Journeyman LA Laker Ron Artest predicts his team will win the 2012 NBA Championship.  Yeah, sure.  That's  like, let's see...  Joe Namath predicting the Jets would beat the Colts in Super Bowl III.  Okay... bad example.

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.
