North Korea's new Supreme leader Kim Jung Un has already hired American ad agency Benton & Bowles to polish his international image.   He's hoping that the same agency that marketed 7-Up as the "Un-Cola" can come up with a campaign establishing him as the "Un-Dictator."

Remember that experimental DeLorean roadster used in the movie "Back to the Future"?  It recently sold at auction for half a million dollars.  And it came with an added bonus -- thanks to a small-print provision in his contract, once a month Michael J. Fox comes to your house to wash it.

As you may or may not have noticed, during Lindsay Lohan's recent photo shoot for Playboy, she tried to imitate the poses made famous by Marilyn Monroe.  When she announced she was seeking a ball player to stand-in for Joe DiMaggio, twenty-six New York Yankees applied. 

Seeking a change of scenery, an adventurous kitty cat in Columbus, Ohio crawled under the hood of an SUV where she completed a 200-mile trip as a stowaway.  She was discovered only when the driver, checking his mileage gauge, noticed he was getting only 17 miles to the hair ball.

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.
