NBC has given "The Playboy Club" the axe after only two episodes.  Apparently, viewers found it was just too much trouble to wait for a bunch of virtual unknowns to take their clothes off when they could just switch over to "Dancing With the Stars" and watch Nancy Grace.

Amanda Knox is slowly becoming accustomed to being back in the U.S. after spending four years of virtual isolation in an Italian prison.  She expressed surprise at how much President Obama's approval rating has plummeted and how different Charlie Sheen looks on "Two and Half Men."  

Overcoming a centuries-old religious prohibition, women in Saudi Arabia have finally won the right to vote.  Never known to overlook an opportunity to make a killing, Avon has begun marketing a new line of exotically scented dye for them to stick their finger in.

A restaurant called "Obama Fried Chicken" has opened in Beijing.  The Chinese love to name food after American politicians.  The same restaurant boasts that its Orange Chicken is "the color of John Boehner."

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.
