Al-Jazeera will soon debut a new sports network providing daily reports on Middle East athletics.  Included will be exclusive worldwide coverage of major events at the region's most popular arena -- Madison Square Garden of Allah.

For the first time, the FDA has lifted the once-sacrosanct ban on human consumption of horse meat.  Several national fast food chains have already taken advantage of the new law.  For instance, McDonald's popular Egg McMuffin is now served on a warm sea biscuit.

All of the popular "Sesame Street" Muppets are now being shown on Afghan television.  In the premier episode, Kermit the Frog enthralled Afghan youngsters with his signature song "It's Not Easy Being in the Green Zone."

At the Scottsdale Rod and Gun Club, Arizona children can have their picture taken sharing Santa's lap with a Winchester 30-30 deer rifle.  Each kid photographed becomes eligible for the big Christmas Eve drawing in which the winner gets to shoot Rudolph.

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.
