McDonald's now has a closed-circuit TV channel that delivers kid-friendly programming to its franchises.  So far the program lineup includes "The Egg McMuppets," "Big Mac & Molly," and "The McView."

Ashton Kutcher is in hot water with wife Demi Moore.  Four starlets claim they Jacuzzied naked with Charlie Sheen's "Two and a Half Men" replacement.   Big mistake coming home with bubble bath on his breath.

"Moneyball," the peanuts and Cracker Jack epic starring Brad Pitt as the General Manager of the Oakland A's, may well be the most realistic baseball film ever made.  It's so authentic, the theater where I saw it had an organ and a seventh inning stretch.

Troy Polamalu, defensive back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, recently drew a $10,000 fine for calling his wife on his cell phone during a game.  And he almost got away with it.  He shouldn't have switched to speaker-phone in the huddle.

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.
