Disgruntled factory workers in Shanghai who assemble complex Xbox consoles climbed on the roof of their factory and threatened to commit mass suicide.  That's nothing compared to Kim Kardashian's seamstresses in Singapore who threatened to kill themselves unless they got a roof.

O.J. Simpson's half-million dollar, four bedroom, four bath home near Miami is threatened with foreclosure while its owner is serving a nine to thirty-three year term in a Nevada jail.  Questioned by reporters, the Broward County Sheriff told them simply, "If the striped suit fits, I must evict."

The religion police in Iran have ordered all Barbie Dolls be removed from toy store shelves because they're "un-Muslim."  Tough luck for Mattel.  Their new "Arranged Marriage Barbie" was just beginning to sell.

For the first time, Wal-Mart will offer its customers income tax advice for free in 3,000 of its stores nationwide.  The way it works is, you give them your tax documents and they send them to a bunch of Chinese accountants in a Shanghai sweat shop.

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.
