Parade Honoree
One of the stars of the Memorial Day Parade in Washington yesterday was World War I veteran Lloyd Brown. But it's not clear if the 103-year old Brown showed up in full uniform with his loaded rifle to participate in the parade, or because he heard President Bush was trying to ruin Social Security.

Bush Ceremony
President Bush laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier yesterday. The President was the perfect person to set the somber tone, since he had just seen his latest poll numbers.

Al Zarqawi Okay
In a new taped message, insurgent leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi assures Osama bin Laden that he was only slightly wounded in a recent attack. Zarqawi explains he had to exagerate the severity of his injuries at first so he could collect as much workman's comp as possible.

Iraqi Doctors Quitting
A new report shows that 32,000 Iraqi doctors have quit their jobs since 2003. It's not because of the continued terror attacks... it's just that ever since the Americans took over, all they do is fill out insurance forms.

Top 5 Signs We're in a Real Estate Bubble

5) The doghouse in your backyard has just been assessed at $315,000

4) $200 million Lotto winners can finally be able to quit their jobs, take a vacation, and put a small downpayment on a 1-bedroom apartment in Manhattan

3) All those crazy stock day-traders from the 90's now work at Century 21

2) Wait at your local doctor's office much shorter than the wait for a decent contractor to call you back

1) Elderly homeowners starting not to worry so much about President Bush ruining Social Security

NYPD Cameras
The New York City Police Department wants to put up 400 surveillance cameras across the city to record possible crime activities 24 hours a day. If approved, the only people doing more filming of crime scenes around the City than the cops would be the folks who produce all those "Law and Order" shows.

Memorial Day
On this Memorial Day, President Bush is reminding the nation that America’s war dead were just “ordinary folks” who did their duty. The “extraordinary folks” were the ones who got those no-show National Guard slots like he did.

Top 5 Things Americans Try to Remember on Memorial Day

5) Those days when gas was less than $2.50 a gallon

4) Where the heck we put the hot dog buns

3) Where we put that shopping list for the mall

2) A good excuse to leave the family cookout early

1) Why the Hell we went to war in Iraq

France EU Vote
French voters resoundingly voted against establishing closer ties with their European neighbors in a national referendum this weekend. The vote offers the first evidence that the European Union may be moving too fast, and that the French people really do just hate everybody.

Clinton Tired?
Former President Clinton is denying reports that his tour of the tsunami-ravaged areas in Asia is leaving him exhausted. But insiders do say he goes to bed every night muttering: “so many widows, so little time.”

More Viagra Blindness (Because I just can't help myself)
So they say Viagra is making some men experience total vision loss. So I guess Stevie Wonder isn't the only blind guy out there with a big smile on his face.

Crane Man Captured
After he stayed atop a crane for 56 hours, Atlanta police finally captured crime suspect Carl Rowland early Saturday. Rowland is wanted in Florida in connection with the murder of his girlfriend, and in Atlanta he's wanted for staging a ridiculous stunt that still didn't do anything to help CNN's ratings.

Jake's Comedy Corner is coming right to your email! To get Jake's jokes emailed to you directly Monday-Friday, just send a blank email to jakesjokes@gmail.com

Viagra Blindness
Some men taking Viagra are reporting cases of total vision loss. But for years, men have been using something that leaves them sexually aroused and blind; it's called beer.

Viagra Blindness II
Some men taking Viagra are reporting cases of total vision loss. Going blind while being artificially aroused is a scary thought for most men, but it's totally great news for that guy who married Star Jones.

Viagra Blindness III
Some men taking Viagra are reporting cases of total vision loss. Doctors aren't sure how to cure their blindness, but at least these guys have a built-in walking stick.

Porn Scam
Police say a female porn star was able to get dozens of bank tellers in New Jersey to approve phony withdrawals because of her "acting experience." That's funny, whenever I make a withdrawal they ask me to show my ID, not fake an orgasm.

Paris Hilton Commercial
Critics say a sexy new Carl's Junior burger TV ad starring Paris Hilton is too racy. If it were any sexier, it would be as damaging to the heart as a burger from Carl's Junior.

WEB ALERT!! I was featured Thursday in the "Pass It On" section on the popular TomPaine.com Web site! Here's the link (you'll find it on the bottom of the homepage or in the "Pass It On archive): Pass It On

Bolton Vote Delayed
Last night the Senate moved to delay the confirmation vote for U.N. Ambassador nominee John Bolton. This works well for both sides; the Democrats get to canvas for more votes against Bolton, while the Republicans get more time to figure out how to make this another religious issue.

Top 5 Things Mahmoud Abbas Will Do with the New $50 million in U.S. Aid

5) Order massive new food subsidies... for Suha Arafat

4) Ensure Israelis really do move out of Gaza by paying back their security deposit

3) Buy fleet of limos for Palestinian officials because even they're afraid to ride the bus

2) Find some way to get "Everybody Loves Raymond" back on the air

1) Earmark the first $1 million to fight corruption, then steal the rest

Spice Girls Reunion?
The Spice Girls may reunite to perform at a new Live Aid concert to fight world hunger. It's a brilliant move because after seeing them perform again, even the world's starving people will never want to eat again.

Zarqawi Injury Confirmed
Iraq's government says insurgent leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi has indeed been injured and has fled to a neighboring country for treatment. The fact that we don't know which country he went to is frustrating the Pentagon, but at least we now have an excuse to bomb Iran AND Syria.

Zarqawi Cell Depleted
Reports say most of insurgent leader Abu Musab al Zarqawi's inner circle is vanishing. Informers say they've either been killed, captured, or joined that other terror group with the better health plan.

Top 5 Things the U.S. Will Do with the $25 million They Now Won't Have to Pay for Zarqawi's Capture

5) Pay expensive plumber to fix all the toilets at Guantanamo Bay clogged with copies of the Koran

4) Pay for a week's worth of Dick Cheney's heart pills

3) Bush has 3 1/2 more years in office... better save it for the next war

2) Go to every newsstand every week and buy every copy of Newsweek before anyone finds out the other crap they're pulling

1) Ah, who are we kidding? They're just gonna give it to Halliburton!

D'Amato Favoritism?
Critics say a decision to give former Senator Al D'Amato's wife Katuria a $38,000 job on a Long Island zoning board amounts to unfair favoritism. But experts say it all evens out, because every night she still has to sleep with Al D'Amato.

CIA War Game
The CIA is simulating a mock cyber war, to see how prepared the U.S. would be if sensitive web sites were hacked by terrorists. But critics are wondering if this is the best time to conduct this exercise, since all the CIA's best computer geeks are still busy watching the Star Wars movie.

Kleinfeld's Move
After 54 years, the famed upscale Kleinfeld's bridal shop is moving from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn to Manhattan. This means the only overpriced thing left in Bay Ridge is the toll for the Verrazano bridge.

Runaway Bride Charged
A Georgia grand jury has charged runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks with one count of making false statements, and one count of making a false report of a crime. If convicted, she could face jail time, fines, and a job offer at Newsweek.

Runaway Bride Charged II
A Georgia grand jury has charged runaway bride Jennifer Wilbanks with one count of making false statements, one count of making a false report of a crime, and one count of falsely making people think that her story would boost MSNBC's ratings.

Disney Boycott Over
Conservative Christian groups are ending their boycott of Disney. Church leaders realized that now that they control the entire Republican party, why should they waste their time on just one corporation?

Top 5 Christian-Approved New Attractions at DisneyWorld

5) "Burn the Witch at the Stake Mountain"

4) "Pinocchio's Evolution Fairy Tales"

3) "Armageddon Land"

2) "The Hall of Republican Presidents"

1) "Missionaries of the Caribbean"

No Jacko Testimony
Defense lawyers say Michael Jackson will not testify in his own defense at his child molestation trial. But it's not clear if he's keeping quiet because he's going to win his case anyway, or because his new plastic lips aren't working yet.

Stem Cell Filibuster
Many of the same U.S. Senators who called the Democrats' filibuster of conservative judicial nominees a unfair tactic are vowing a filibuster of their own to stop any vote on stem cell research. Apparently, they're worried stem cell research could lead to a cure for hypocrisy.

Top 5 Signs Partisan Members of the Senate Still Aren't Getting Along

5) Conservative Republicans still putting "kick me" sign on Hillary's back every time she leaves the Senate floor

4) After 2 years, Senators who voted for Reuben Studdard still not talking to Senators who voted for Clay Aiken

3) John Kerry still refusing to date Republican Senator's wives... even if they're rich!

2) As a practical joke, Republican Senators are still ordering 20 Dominos pizzas to Ted Kennedy's house every night... and he keeps eating all of them!

1) The only issue they still all agree on is giving themselves another pay raise

911 Calls
An 86-year-old North Carolina woman has been jailed after calling 911 several times to complain that her local pizza parlor wouldn't deliver. Of course, everyone knows you shouldn't call 911 to complain about a fast food place unless you find a finger in your meal.

PBS Defense
Defending her network from attacks that it's too liberal, PBS president Pat Mitchell says "PBS does not belong to any American political party." Of course, that's only because America has no socialist party.

Original Americans
Scientists now believe North America was first populated by a tribe of as few as 70 people who first came here about 10,000 years ago. It's believed they were able to survive where so many others failed by working harder, hunting smarter, and not messing with Social Security.

More Millionaires
The good news is the number of American millionaires has now hit an all-time high of seven and half million people. The bad news is most of them own gas stations.

Officer Shaq
Shaquille O'Neal says that after he retires, he wants to become a police officer tracking down dangerous criminals. Of course he could practice now by arresting everyone on the Portland Trailblazers.

Officer Shaq II
Shaquille O'Neal says that after he retires from the NBA, he wants to become an undercover police officer... not because he likes clandestine work, it's just that no police department has uniforms in his size.

Bush on Stem Cells
President Bush is speaking out against stem cell research saying "we should not use public money to support the further destruction of human life." Does that mean we're pulling out of Iraq soon?

Top 5 Bush Administration Alternatives to Stem Cell Research

5) Instead of growing new organs with stem cells, just take some from Iraqi prisoners!

4) Only let stem cell researchers destroy some human embryos… the gay ones

3) Drill for fresh organs in the Alaskan National Wildlife Reserve

2) Instead of freezing human embryos, just harvest human body parts from your local Wendy's

1) Ask Jesus really nicely to stop making people sick

Stem Cell Congress
Right wing members of Congress are vowing to block new stem cell research despite new evidence that it could offer treatments for many debilitating ailments. But that could change as soon as someone proves that stem cell research can cure the debilitating mental ailments that affect right wing members of Congress.

Leno's Testimony
Jay Leno says it "sounded phony" when the child accuser in the Michael Jackson trial told him he was his hero. But it's not clear if it sounded any phonier than it does when Kevin Eubanks tells him the same thing every night.

Al-Zarqawi Hurt
An al Qaeda Web site claims that Iraqi insurgent leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi has been injured. The terrorist group is using the news to give Zaqawi hero status, implore followers to stage more attacks, and clearly explain its policies for calling in sick.

Unhappy Meals
An entertainment watchdog group says Burger King's "Star Wars"-themed children's meals amount to an endorsement of movie violence. Burger King denies that, insisting that its meals have always only amounted to an endorsement of childhood obesity.

GM Discount Push
In hopes of boosting sagging sales, General Motors is asking its retired executives to offer their vehicle discounts to other people. It's not really much of a sacrifice, since nobody who's ever worked at GM is actually dumb enough to buy one of their cars!

GM Discount Push II
In hopes of boosting sagging sales, General Motors is asking its retired executives to give away their vehicle discounts. In a related story, GM is asking all its non-executive retirees to give away their pensions and health care insurance.

No Nukes
The U.S. Senate cut a deal on judicial filibusters just before Republican Senators had to resort to the dreaded "nuclear option"… which included killing debate, slowing Senate business, and canceling a whole week's worth of everyone's fundraisers.

No Nukes II
By making a deal to avoid further filibustering, the Senate has saved itself from descending into an all-out war, saved the judiciary from continued vacancies, and saved America from having to see any more of Bill Frist and Harry Reid on CNN.

Frist Hurt?
Some political experts say Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist's inability to force an up or down vote on all the judicial nominees will hurt his presidential chances. But others say that if the Republicans rejected candidates simply because they couldn't accomplish anything, they certainly wouldn't have nominated George W. Bush!

Laura's Back
First Lady Laura Bush is back from her 5-day Middle East trip. Now if she wants to see a bunch of hot-headed religious fanatics, she'll just have to visit Congress.

Spyware Bill
The House has voted to establish new penalties for people who make Internet software that gathers personal information from a user's computer. Members of Congress want to make it clear that it's only okay for the government to illegally spy on you.

College Drop-Outs
A new study shows that the college dropout rate is soaring. Experts believe it's because most students would rather not wait four years to be unemployed when they can be unemployed now.

Wal-Mart Art
The family that owns Wal-Mart is planning to build a $50 million art museum in their hometown of Bentonville, Arkansas. The only question is: how will they get the museum all the way to Arkansas once they're finished making it in China?

Graves Released
Cincinnati Reds pitcher Danny Graves has been released after he made an obscene gesture to a fan at a game on Sunday. There's no word yet on whether anyone else in the organization will be fired for the obscene gesture of charging $49 per seat at every Reds game.

Trump University
Donald Trump says his new business school, Trump University, will issue no real degrees and offer no real classes. Apparently the idea came from the same people who made his hair.

Top 5 Classes Offered at the New Trump University (originally posted August 27, 2004)

5) Pre-nup economics

4) Comb-over geometry

3) Swedish for guys who want to date models

2) The history of trophy wives

1) The ego, superego, and Trump ego

Viagra Medicare
A new study shows that federal funds are being used to help convicted rapists and child molesters buy Viagra. It's the most public money spent to help sex offenders commit more crimes since they built a private office in the White House for Bill Clinton.

Afghan Crops
The U.S. says it wants to help Afghanistan get its poppy farmers to plant pomegranates and honeydew melons instead. The farmers say they're willing to try that, as soon as someone tells them how to take pomegranates and honey dew melons and convert them into an addictive, inject-able liquid.

Pilot Punished (for my fan or fans at the FAA)
The pilot who almost got shot down by U.S. Air Force jets after drifting over restricted airspace in Washington, DC earlier this month has had his license revoked. He can reapply after one year... or after he gets all the stains out of his flight pants, whichever comes first.

Top 5 Punishment Jobs for the D.C. Airspace Scare Pilot (also for my fan or fans at the FAA)

5) One year of duty as private pilot for Rosie O'Donnell

4) Afghan poppy crop duster

3) Baghdad Airport baggage handler

2) United Airlines pension fund finder

1) Air Force target shooting training dummy

Wedding Costs
A new study says the cost of the average wedding has soared to more than $26,300. The first $20,000 is spent just filling up the gas tank in the bride's limo.

Computer Course Enrollment Down
The number of undergraduates signing up for computer degrees is down 10% from last year. But that's only because those courses are mostly taught in Chinese and Hindi.

Bobby Brown's Posse
Two men in singer Bobby Brown's entourage were hospitalized for knife wounds after a fight at a restaurant yesterday. Police immediately cleared Brown of any connection with the crime because he only attacks women.

Beatty Slams Arnold
While delivering a graduation speech at UC Berkeley this weekend, actor Warren Beatty said he could do a better job than Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. But it's not clear if Beatty was talking about governing or groping.

Laura's Take
First Lady Laura Bush says she was not surprised by the near-riot that broke out while she visited Jerusalem this weekend adding that "people who are unaware that tensions in this region can be set off with the slightest provocation really aren't familiar with this region"... in other words, people like her husband.

Laura's Courage
First Lady Laura Bush says she was never frightened as a near-riot broke out while she visited the Dome of the Rock mosque in Jerusalem this weekend. That's because since it was a mosque, she knew there couldn't be any dangerous gay people around.

Excited Bear
Wildlife officials say the black bear that waded into a suburban Los Angeles pool was probably desperately looking for a mate. But why a hairy beast in heat was searching for love in a swimming pool and not the MGM studio lot is still unknown.

Spokane Mayor Staying On
Despite evidence that he tried to meet young men for sex over the Internet, Spokane Mayor Jim West is refusing to step down. West says if he really wanted to use political office for sexual pursuits, he would have run for Congress.

Desperate Housewives Season Finale
Most of the secrets were finally revealed on Sunday's "Desperate Housewives" finale. But viewers will just have to wait until next season to learn if the sexy plumber Mike will survive, if the cheating husband Rex is really dead, and if the trashy Nicolette Sheridan's body can survive anymore plastic surgery.

AIG Case
Indictments could be coming soon for several executives at AIG Insurance accused of accounting fraud. The judge in the case will face several challenges including sifting through confusing evidence, keeping the lawyers in check, and finding a jury with 12 actual people who won't want to sentence a bunch of insurance executives to death even before testimony begins.

Monday, May 23, 2005

Filibuster Deadline
The clock is ticking on members of the U.S. Senate trying to hammer out a deal on judicial filibusters. They only have until tomorrow before most of them finally begin to realize that 99% of Americans really don't give a damn.

Top 5 New Story-Gathering Procedures at Newsweek

5) Reporters will only copy stories from "The Weekly World News" about aliens, not the war on terror

4) Just to be sure, all questionable anonymous sources will be asked to leave a $50 deposit along with their information

3) Will test to see if members of their special Muslim focus group start to kill each other over any of their stories before they go ahead and publish them

2) New rule: "If publishing the story would actually make the Bush White House look relatively ethical, then kill it!"

1) All stories will now first be checked by two senior editors and Donald Rumsfeld's publicist

Karzai's Defense
Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai says Western countries need to do more to help fight his nation's war on poppy farmers. The United States has immediately pledged to help deplete the Afghan heroin supply by sending Robert Downey Jr. to Kabul.

Supreme Court Illegals
The Supreme Court has rejected an appeal by a Mexican man on death row in Texas who says his sentence should be overturned because he was not able to get legal counsel from Mexico. In its decision, the court cited international law, the Constitution, and everything they've learned from watching Lou Dobbs on CNN.

Monica Musical
Preparations are underway for a new Off-Broadway musical based on the life of Monica Lewinsky. Auditions for the lead role are being held on the corner of 52nd Street and 10th Avenue between 1 and 3AM.

Laura Protested
A large crowd of Palestinians demonstrated against First Lady Laura Bush as she visited the Temple Mount in Jerusalem today. The protesters were angry about the U.S.-Israeli friendship, the war in Iraq, and the fact that Laura hasn't given them any new funny lines about President Bush in three weeks.

Subway Photo Ban Axed
The New York City Police Department says it won't enforce a ban on taking pictures in the subway. Cops decided to lay off because it turns out all that flash photography doesn't really bother the rats at all.

Teacher Weds Student
Mary Kay Letourneau married her former 6th grade student Vili Fualaau outside Seattle this weekend. It was a short ceremony, so it wouldn't conflict with Fualaau's bedtime.

Bush's Graduation Speech
Speaking at Calvin College's commencement ceremonies today, President Bush urged the graduates to follow his example and consider public service. But if the graduates truly want to follow Bush's example, they'll need to spend the next 20 years taking cushy jobs and getting drunk... then they can think about running for office.

Friday, May 20, 2005

Saddam's Picture
Experts say a British tabloid's decision to publish pictures of Saddam Hussein in his underwear is a violation of human rights. But it's not clear whose rights are being violated; Hussein's or the readers'.

Top 5 Slogans for the Newly-Merged U.S. Airways and America West Airlines

5) "Something Leveraged in the Air"

4) "Two Wrongs Make a Flight"

3) "We're in Chapter Eleven, and it Shows!"

2) "Be Advised, Our Pilots Always Carry Less than $20"

1) "Misery Loves Company"

NBA Steroid Rules
Congress is bashing the NBA's anti-steroid policy, calling it a "joke." But NBA commissioner David Stern says it's hard to screen the players for steroids when they all have to take paternity tests first.

Jackson Case Wrapping Up
The Michael Jackson case is expected to wrap up in the next two weeks thanks to shortened witness lists, a focused judge, and low Neilson ratings.

Cosby's Donation
Comedian Bill Cosby has made a $600,000 donation to Bennett College for Women in North Carolina. Cosby wants the money to be used in the school's renowned English, Science and Groping departments.

Lewd Subway Cam Broken
New York City Police now say the hidden "upskirt" camera they found at a subway station this week was actually not functioning. Had it been operational, it would have been the first thing to work in the subway since 1964.

Larry Nixed
The judge in the Michael Jackson case didn't allow CNN host Larry King to testify for the defense, saying his testimony would be irrelevant. Defense lawyers should have known that would happen, since King's show has been irrelevant for 6 years.

Thursday, May 19, 2005

Women in Combat
Congress is expected to pass a bill that extends the ban on women from serving in ground combat. The Pentagon is supporting the ban, because putting women on the front lines takes them away from the key role they play in humiliating naked Arab prisoners of war.

Top 5 Secrets Revealed in the New Star Wars Movie

5) Darth Vader's heavy breathing is only scary because he could really use some Listerine

4) Evil emperor takes control of the Galaxy using dark side powers, illegal campaign donations

3) Jedi Knights all resoundingly defeated, get shows on Air America

2) Annakin Skywalker attracted to dark side's brute power, huge potential merchandising revenue

1) All the Star Wars geeks camping out at theaters will never get a date... oh wait, that's not a secret

Laura in the Middle East
First Lady Laura Bush will make a solo visit to the Middle East this week. Arab people are hoping Mrs. Bush will show them how to make fun of her husband without being sent to Guantanamo Bay.

Senate Secrets
The Senate intelligence committee will discuss the renewal of the Patriot Act behind closed doors, prompting objections from ACLU lawyers who are worried the Senators might secretly say some prayers.

Larry King for Jacko
Larry King was slated to testify for Michael Jackson's defense today. Of course, King likes Jackson because he's a celebrity, and Jackson likes King because he wears diapers.

Saudi Secrets
A new book called "Secrets of the Kingdom," claims that the Saudi Arabian government has a nation-wide self-destruct system that involves setting off explosives at key oil ports and pipelines. The U.S. self-destruct mechanism involves electing more Republicans to Congress.

Schiavos Meet Benedict
Terri Schiavo's parents met with Pope Benedict this week. They have a lot in common; they're Catholic, devout, and are desperately trying to get back on CNN.

Women's Priorities
A new survey by Allure magazine says that 81% of women believe being good at their job is more important than being attractive. So THAT's why most hookers look so skanky!

Wednesday, May 18, 2005

Latino Wins L.A. Mayor's Race
Antonio Villaraigosa became the first Latino to win the Mayor's office in Los Angeles in 133 years with a sweeping victory over incumbent James Hahn. Hahn and his supporters are now expected to seek day labor at construction sites and restaurants.

Top 5 Real Reasons CBS is Canceling "60 Minutes II"

5) Most of show's typical viewers too busy traveling to Canada to buy cheaper arthritis drugs

4) Complies with corporate-owned media's new credo: "If you can't say something nice about President Bush, then don't say anything at all"

3) Nation's best document-forgers all asking for a 15% pay hike

2) Show's elderly anchors taking too many afternoon naps

1) That damned annoying stopwatch finally stopped ticking

Trump's Plan
Donald Trump wants to build an almost-exact replica of the Twin Towers at Ground Zero. While Trump does have experience rebuilding where there was once devastation, this will be a much tougher job than his hairdo.

Battle of the Sexes
A new Life Magazine survey shows that most men want to have sex on the weekend, while most women want to spend their weekends getting some sleep. This actually means men and women can both get what they want on the weekend as long as women are willing to wait three minutes.

Weapons in Space
The Air Force is pushing for a plan to deploy weapons in space. The offensive weapons would include laser-guided missile launchers, spy probes, and two more satellites that broadcast the FOX News Channel.

Grenade Attack
The Secret Service now confirms there was a live grenade thrown near President Bush when he spoke in Tblisi, Georgia last week, but it did not go off. Usually, the only dud you find at a Bush event is the President's speech.

Star Wars Opens Tonight
Huge lines continue to grow outside theaters as "Revenge of the Sith" premieres at midnight. But it's not clear if the crowds are mostly geeky American fans of the movies, or geeky American computer programmers whose jobs have been outsourced to India.

Star Wars Gross
Experts say George Lucas' fictional Star Wars stories will gross more than $20 billion in total box office and merchandising revenues... a figure bettered only by the $240 billion Halliburton has grossed from President Bush's fictional stories about the war in Iraq.

Tuesday, May 17, 2005

Senate Compromise?
The U.S. Senate is reportedly close to a deal that would break the filibuster on some of President Bush's judicial nominees. Experts call the deal a "win-win" for both sides because the plan allows the Democrats to keep stalling on three nominations, and the Republicans to keep stalling on health care, education and jobs.

Top 5 Compromises Being Considered to End the Senate Filibuster

5) Democrats will give five conservative judicial nominees an up-or-down vote, Republicans will let Ted Kennedy cut the cafeteria line on "Pudding Day"

4) Republicans will allow three conservative judicial nominations to die, Democrats will allow three terminally brain-damaged women in Florida to live

3) Democrats and Republicans will evenly split money that would have been spent on another month's worth of TV commercials bashing each other

2) Democrats won't block the Republicans' "top choice" nominees, Republicans won't block the Democrats' "top choice" interns

1) Democrats agree to stop abusing the filibuster, Republicans agree to stop abusing everything else

Wal-Mart Deer
A deer that wandered into a Wal-Mart in Norfolk, Nebraska was quickly tackled and then pushed back outside. It's unclear why the deer was mistaken for a union organizer.

Lucas Not Bashing Bush
George Lucas is denying suggestions that there are parallels between the evil emperor in the Star Wars movies and the Bush administration. That's mostly because the emperor clearly knows what he's doing.

Star Wars Dates
Hundreds of Star Wars fans in New York are posting messages online looking for dates to the movie's opening night, but they are all demanding that their dates purchase their own tickets first... which adds an irresistible "cheapness factor" to their already nerdy personalities.

Lord of the Rings Tickets
Tickets for the stage production of Lord of the Rings went on sale this week in Toronto. This caused a major dilemma for the city's leading geeks, who had to decide to either buy tickets or keep camping out in front the theaters showing Star Wars.

Super X-Rays
The Transportation Security Administration says it will soon begin using new x-ray machines that act as "virtual strip searches" because they show a clear picture of what's under a passenger's clothes. But TSA workers are showing great reluctance to use the machine, not because of privacy issues, but because Rosie O'Donnell travels so frequently.

Gay Marriage Poll
A new survey shows that half of Americans disapprove of same-sex marriages and don't want their states to recognize them. The other half wants to wait to see if President Bush's new relationship with Saudi Prince Abdullah brings down gas prices before they make any judgments.

Cuban Protests
About one million Cubans are taking to the streets of Havana today to demand that the U.S. arrest Cuban exile Luis Posada. Cubans want Posada returned to Havana because he's accused of terrorism, conspiracy, and may be holding the entire nation's three remaining rolls of toilet paper.

Good Morning America will become the first morning show to broadcast in high-definition this fall... bringing the super visual accuracy to muffin recipes the nation has craved for years.

Bush's Gifts
President Bush's friends and admirers gave him several high-priced gifts last year, including a $2,700 mountain bike and thousands of dollars worth of fishing gear. Apparently, even Bush's supporters would rather he just stay on vacation.

Madonna at Cannes
Madonna has turned down a slot as a judge at the Cannes film festival because it conflicted with her Kabbalah meetings. Funny, I would have thought it actually just conflicted with her complete inability to recognize a good film.

Newsweek Retraction
Newsweek now admits its reports of Koran desecration cannot be confirmed. The Pentagon is responding by blasting the magazine for reporting things that didn't happen, and for not assigning those same reporters to the WMD story in Iraq.

Newsweek Retraction II
