Sharp-eyed net surfers have discovered several inaccuracies in the Dead Sea Scrolls recently put online in Israel.  For instance, Jesus's dad never toured with the Carpenters, the Ten Commandments were never called the Ten Behavioral Guidelines and Lot's wife was turned into a pillar of salt, not Accent.  

In London, Paul McCartney, 69, married the American heiress Nancy Shevell who's 51.  Some fear their age difference may be a problem and they're probably right.  Yesterday she said to him, "Will I still love you when?  Paul, when I'm 65, you'll be dead."

A woman in Moscow who had "died" at age 49 suddenly woke up while lying in state.  The KGB is  investigating the doctor who signed her death certificate.  As if Dr. Conrad Murray didn't already have enough legal trouble.

Tiger Woods, currently languishing at the lower depths of the PGA rankings list, has hired himself a new caddy.  With the divorce and the endorsement losses, Tiger's having worse financial problems than anyone imagined.  He told the new guy he'd have to provide his own pencil.

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.
