Sean Stone, the son of Oliver Stone, recently visited Iran and while there converted to the Islam religion, changing his name to Ali.  And following in his dad’s footsteps, he’s now claiming there was a second shooter in the assassination of Osama bin Laden.

Officials in Pakistan have demolished the Abbottabad compound where Navy Seals killed Osama bin Laden.  As the building was torn down, the wrecking ball exposed several hidden rooms including a kiln for curing beaver pelts used in making fake beards, and a dressing room for forty-two virgins.

In Puerto Villarta, Mexico, thirty passengers on a shore excursion from a Princess cruise ship were held up at gunpoint by bandits.  But Princess PR officials managed to make the best of it by re-naming the excursion the “I Don’t Got to Show You No Stinking Badges Adventure.” 
The FDA will soon approve a compound made from spider venom that may be used to treat erectile dysfunction.  Strict warning label required, though -- “See your doctor if it lasts longer than four hours or starts spinning a web.”

Apple Computers has partnered with LensCrafters to market a computer screen that can be displayed on eyeglass lenses and seen only by the wearer.  They haven’t chosen a very appealing name for the new computer, though -- the “LensCrapple.”

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.
