Vanessa Bryant, wife of super-Laker Kobe who stood by him during admissions of on-the-road adulterous dalliances, has filed for divorce.  She's charging the net star with irreconcilable differences -- of what constitutes a suitably-carited apology diamond.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd is charged with attempting to buy ten kilos of cocaine and 1000 pounds of marijuana to supply his drug distribution ring.  On a more positive note, he's taking a class in Political Science from his cell-mate, former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich.

A Chicago disrobing emporium is offering free lap dances to men who agree to donate an unwrapped Christmas toy to homeless children.  Actually, they can donate wrapped toys but the girls keep unwrapping them out of habit.  

The Animal Rescue Center of Milwaukee is generating national publicity for its annual fund drive by displaying a kitten that was born there with 26 toes.  Only six weeks old and already the kitty is a world record holder -- she can shred an entire leather couch in 6.8 seconds.

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.
