Lindsay Lohan got good news and bad news last week.  Bad news is she owes $140,000 in back taxes.  Good news, she’s hosting “Saturday Night Live” and it will mark the first time the SNL cast will present an IRS sketch with a real IRS auditor.

A nude shopper who weighed 300 pounds showed up at a Pittsburgh Wal Mart and stole a pair of black socks.  Turns out he was a porn actor buying wardrobe for his role in the now-filming “Debbie Does the Dallas Cowboys.”

Coincidentally, the guy was the only 300-pounder mentioned in the news last week -- unless, of course, you count New Jersey‘s Governor Christie.

The co-host of a popular British TV archeology series left the show after a former fashion model was hired as his on-air partner.  Actually, the model demanded that the producers sack him after he refused to stop referring to her on-camera as "Airheadonus rex."

Launched last year amid much hype and hysteria, Oprah’s new cable channel OWN can’t seem to attract viewers.  Seems nobody is tuning in --  nobody. Stedman confessed to reporters that he only watches it for sex.

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.
