FUGGETABOUTIT -- According to a panel of leading nutritionists, the average driver could save $396 per year on fuel costs by shedding 100 pounds.  How did they determine this?  Well, they tested Mafia drivers with and without a female body in the trunk.

VIVA LA VIN -- Harvard Med researchers found that the chemical "restueratrol" found in red wine may extend life. They stumbled on this after several extraordinarily healthy mice were discovered living on $2 Buck Chuck Merlot at Trader Joe's.

ULTIMATE D -- LG has introduced its 84-inch Ultra HD TV that guarantees four times the resolution of ordinary HD.  At $20,000 a pop, it may be a tough sell, though.  Wouldn't it be cheaper to hire the actors to perform the show in your living room?

BABALOO -- To dispel persistent rumors that he is on death's door, Fidel Castro went on Cuban TV dressed in a baseball uniform.  In a related story, Dick Cheney appeared on Animal Planet dressed in hunting togs and carrying a new Winchester 30-30.

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.
