CURIOSITY KILLED THE DON -- NASA has announced the discovery by the rover Curiosity of a dry river bed on Mars. Might have been a pretty deep one, too. Several skeletons found on the bottom, with cement-like overshoes still attached, have been identified as having belonged to notorious Martian mob bosses.
EQUAL OPPORTUNITY BLASPHEMY -- Rather that take any evangelical chances, the French government closed down all of their embassies in the Muslim world after a cartoonist insulted the Prophet Mohammed. Hey, why should Muslims be left out? Since the French Revolution, Paris cabbies have insulted Catholics, Jews, Baptists, Lutherans, Anglicans, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Scientologists, Hindus,
Buddhists, Sikhs, Zoroastrians and every unit of the Salvation Army.
NO STINKING BADGES -- Three robbers armed with shovels and pick axes successfully made off with $2 million in gold and gems from California's Mining and Mineral Museum in Mariposa. Dressed as grubby prospectors with beards and a burro loaded with supplies, they were briefly detained by police but released after claiming they were actors working on a remake of "The Treasure of Sierra Madre."
