According to polls, gambling receipts on this Sunday's Super Bowl will be the highest in history including an estimated $4.3 million won by the winners of office pools.  The Patriots are favored to win by 3 points and it's even money whether Madonna will experience a wardrobe malfunction.

A group of gourmet diners in an upscale Tokyo restaurant required emergency medical treatment after being served broiled blow fish testicles.  It wasn't the food that sent them to the hospital -- it was a gang of freshly-castrated blow fish who stormed the restaurant to exact their revenge.

After months of negative cash register receipts, the first Starbucks on the East Coast that opened in 1993 has called it quits.  It was simple economics.  Who'll pay $4.75 for a cup of some exotic overpriced blend of flavored hot water when they can walk down the street to another Starbucks and pay $4.50?

Spain-based SpanAir stranded over 20,000 passengers when it shut down suddenly and cancelled all lights throughout Europe.  The good news is, each stranded passenger was offered a full refund plus $5,000 for their inconvenience.  The bad news is, SpanAir is charging them $10,000 to return their luggage.

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.
