Following the interview of Ruth Madoff on "60 Minutes," Larry King confided to a reporter that he holds no ill will toward Bernie since he recovered all of his $700,000 investment.  Of course, Larry has kind of an inside track.  He went to grammar school with Charlie Ponzi.

The producers of the new Antonio Bandaras starrer "Puss N Boots" used cutting-edge digital motion software to duplicate exactly a feline's natural movements.  There's an intermission halfway through the film when Puss regurgitates a giant hair ball.

The re-release of the six "Star Wars" movies on Blu-Ray raked in $38 million during its first week.  That's the good news.  The bad news is that in the Blue-ray version, Carrie Fisher's hair looks even more like a helmet.

Is nothing safe anymore?  There's a new warning that sugar-free chewing gum can damage teeth.  They discovered it strictly by accident when someone noticed that a wad of it was eating through the metal on the bottom of a theater seat.

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.
