Lowe's Home Improvement stores canceled their sponsorship of "All-American Muslim" on TLC prompting Muslim groups to protest outside a Lowe's in New Jersey.   Turns out it wasn't the cancellation that got the riled up -- it was
Lowe's House & Garden associates using slaughtered goats to demonstrate their barbecue grills.

In his new book "Time to Get Tough," Donald Trump says it's time for the U.S. to take off the gloves and confront Beijing.  Don's been miffed at the Chinese ever since he walked into a P. F. Chang's for lunch and the chef took one look

This year's Super Bowl Halftime will be sponsored by Bridgestone Tires and will feature Madonna in a "Salute to the 1970s."  And what an entrance they have planned.  She'll jump out of a giant Bridgestone radial wearing her trademark
black mesh hose and a bra with pointed steel cups.

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.
