According to leading audiologists, the 20% of the American public suffering from hearing loss all share similar causes:  too many rock concerts, a job near heavy machinery or being at that Padres game when Roseanne Barr sang the National Anthem.

A well-known lingerie manufacturer in Colombia staged what is believed to be the first fashion show in a passenger jet cruising at 13,000 feet.  Making it the first fashion show where the air was thinner than the models.

Warren Buffett shocked everyone in publishing by actually paying $200 million for the floundering Omaha World Herald.  Warren's eyes aren't what they used to be.  Turns out he misread the contract and thought he was buying Obama an endorsement from the World Heritage Foundation. 

In Salt Lake City, a flock of migrating birds suddenly veered off course and dove head first into a nearby parking lot of a Wal Mart. While at a loss to explain the strange behavior, several leading ornithologists theorize that they may have been looking for some engines on a jet flown by Sully

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.
