WHEN YOU WISH -- Disney has acquired the "Star Wars" franchise for a whopping $4.05 billion.  But already, there are signs of trouble.   Darth Vader is fighting with Michael Ovitz over the corner office... Snow White has to share three Dwarfs with Princess Leah... and R2D2 is refusing to host the Robotics Exhibit at Epcot Center.

BY THE SHORE -- Superstorm Sandy completely devastated the New Jersey shore, toppling familiar Boardwalk attractions like the Tilt-a-Whirl, the Ferris Wheel and the Tornado roller coaster.   So far, the only thing they've found left standing was Snooki.

SPLIT DECISION -- In a study commissioned by the UN, researchers studying world hunger have predicted that due to global warming, bananas will soon replace potatoes as the primary source of food in Third World Countries.  May be happening already.  Several banana republics are now listed in the Zugat Guide.   

SWIMMING UPSTREAM -- A new web site now offers live sperm of well-known stars from the world of sports and entertainment.   For a slight additional charge, the sperm of an agent is included in the sample so the kid will have work virtually from birth. 

HANGING THREE -- NASA's lunar rover Curiosity has the analyzed its first soil samples of the Mars surface and discovered compelling evidence that they contain "basaltic" materials similar to those in Hawaii.  Looks like there was not only liquid water on Mars, there might have been surfing.

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.
