Michael Vick is one lucky professional athlete.  He hit the jackpot with Philadelphia Eagles management, signing a hundred million dollar ten-year deal even though he almost failed the league-mandated physical.  He was recovering from a nasty case of kennel cough.

The divorce court has ruled that Mel Gibson must pay his ex-wife Oksana a $750,000 settlement.  How was that figure arrived at?  Well, the judge reviewed the audio tapes of his rants and decided to charge him $10,000 per racial epithet.

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.
