One of the bidders to purchase the Los Angeles Dodgers is Larry King.  The players are already demanding they be traded if the rumors circulating around the club are true -- that they'd be required to wear suspenders on the field.

Issue #1 of Action Comics recently sold at auction for in excess of $2 million.  Ironic, isn't it?  That's the issue in which the Metropolis police chief seeks Superman's help in catching a publisher of overpriced comic books.

Seventies model/actress Christie Brinkley has vowed to straighten out her current problems with the IRS.  Seems they take the position that declaring medical deductions of $8.3 million for fad diets was a tad excessive even for a model.

At the urging of medical authorities, Great Britain is considering a bill that would ban smoking in all automobiles and lorries.  The health threat doesn't come from the tobacco use as you might think.  Seems it gets so smokey in some cars, drivers inadvertently turn into a restaurant.

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.
