A German national living with his mother was arrested after fifty-three cars were set on fire in Los Angeles over the New Years weekend.  He's been charged with arson, destruction of property and infringement of the copyright on flaming cars owned by the Chevy Volt.

Iran threatened "to blow US ships out of the water" if they interfered with their closing of the Straits of Hormuz.  The navy has come up with a unique solution.  They've changed the name of the nuclear sub they're sending there from the USS Ronald Reagan to the USS Amadinajad.  

Plans are underway to develop a script for a film which will depict Elton John's journey from humble beginnings in the streets of London to a world class entertainer.  Biggest winner if the movie is made?  Lenscrafters who have landed the eyeglasses contract.

Members of the Chicago Cab Drivers Association have petitioned City Hall for the right to charge riders $75 extra if they leave a messy cab.  Is there no end to their greed?  They already demand an extra $50 just to store a corpse in the trunk.

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.
