Parents complained to L.A. Unified School District officials when they learned that a well-known porn star was allowed to read a story to their first-graders.  Until now, nobody had any idea what "The Little Engine That Could" did on his day off.

The producers of "Happy Feet 2" now playing in theaters are defendants in a multimillion dollar lawsuit filed by the Vatican and alleging theft of intellectual property.  The church claims that the penguins' wardrobe was lifted almost entirely from the Little Sisters of the Poor.

Video game fans are flocking to purchase "Call of Duty 3," reportedly the most realistic police video ever made.  Some gamers are taking the advice of the game's makers to add even more realism by playing it in a do-nut shop.

After lengthy and heated negotiations, L.A. Dodger home run wizard Matt Kemp has signed a new contract with the club.  Under the terms of his new pact, he'll receive $160 million in salary and three Hollywood starlets to be named later.

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.
