Rove Indictment?
Experts believe presidential advisor Karl Rove will be indicted this week, because he described his latest testimony before the grand jury as "Hell." But actually, Rove only said that because they wouldn't let him eat any Twinkies while on the stand.

Snow Job
FOX News anchor Tony Snow has been appointed White House Spokesman. Snow says he's excited about taking a job where he'll be allowed to be slightly more critical of the President.

Snow Job II
The White House says it was actually willing to hire a New York Times reporter for the job, but they're all too busy being spokesmen for al Qaeda.

Snow Job III
Some are wondering why Tony Snow would take such a big pay cut to leave FOX and go the White House. Of course, they're forgetting everyone in this administration gets free gas.

Iran's Man of Peace
At a news conference this morning, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he was a "peaceful man who would not hurt an ant." But that's only because there are no Jewish ants.

Bush Approval
A new poll shows President Bush's approval rating has hit an all-time low of 32%... and that's just among gas station owners.

4) Your dog doesn't even sniff your crotch anymore

In the Enron trial Monday, former CEO Ken Lay blamed the news media for the company's collapse. Well, it looks like the Bush administration has found a new White House spokesman!

President Bush is ordering an investigation into whoever's responsible for gas price gauging. Geez, aren't Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld have enough to worry about these days?

Union Protest
Several New York Transit Union members marched off to jail with President Roger Toussaint Monday. Great, a token booth they won't go to, but a jail cell they will?!?

Bin Laden Tape
Osama bin Laden's latest taped message is outraging millions of Americans. Once again, he refuses to make it available on iTunes!

Bin Laden also says America's refusal to help Hamas is proof of the "crusaders' war against Islam." Actually, the reason why American doesn't support Hamas is those guys never send you a receipt.

Bonds Homers
It took three weeks, but Barry Bonds finally hit his first home run of the season Saturday night. He must be using those new time-release steroids.

New Orleans Runoff
The mayoral race in New Orleans is definitely headed for a runoff. But there are still a lot of questions to be answered... like who the Hell would want to be mayor of New Orleans?

Greek Orthodox Easter
Sunday was Greek Orthodox Easter. The Greek Orthodox celebrate Easter later because they adhere to the lunar calendar, and they like to get all that Easter candy for half price.

BTK Privileges
"BTK Killer" Dennis Rader has won the right to watch television in his cell, but sexually explicit programs would not be allowed. That means he'll only be able to watch PAX TV and the Weather Channel.

Kerry in 2008?
John Kerry says he's trying to decide whether to make a serious run for president in 2008. It's kind of weird, because he never decided to run a serious campaign for president in 2004.

NEWSDAY ALERT!! I'm back in today's "Punchlines" column in Newsday and Here's the link: Newsday

1) "Dammit, I came here to see Tom and Katie's baby!"

No Connection
Shoe bomber Richard Reid told a terror trial jury Thursday that he and 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui never worked together on a terrorist plot. They did, however, use the same personal stylist.

Wednesday, April 19, 2006

Hu Here
Chinese President Hu Jintao is visiting the United States this week. Hopefully, he's not here to collect our debts.

Hamas Aid
Qatar's government has joined Iran in making a $50 million pledge to Hamas. But it's not clear if they made that donation because they believe in the cause, or if they just did it for the free tote bag and "Hamas' Greatest Hits" DVD box-set that comes with every donation of $30 million or more.

Tram Escape
Dozens of Roosevelt Island residents were rescued Tuesday when they got stuck on the trams going to Manhattan. It's not clear what's worse, being stranded on the tram or being stranded on Roosevelt Island.

McClellan's Replacement?
TV anchor Tony Snow is rumored to be the favorite to replace Scott McClellan as White House Spokesman. Of course as a FOX News employee, Snow is already a spokesman for the White House.

Rove Out?
Senior White House adviser Karl Rove reportedly will no longer focus on policy and is switching to long-term strategic planning. In other words, his new job is finding a way to keep everyone in the Bush administration out of jail.

1) Colicky babies just love Jagermeister!

Rumsfeld Defense
Supporters of Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld are strongly defending him against charges he ignores advice from generals who disagree with him. They rightly point out that Rumsfeld can't ignore advice he never bothered to listen to in the first place.

Rumsfeld Defense II
President Bush has twice rejected letters of resignation from Donald Rumsfeld. That forced Rumsfeld to ask: "What does a guy have to do to get out of this administration?" To which President Bush replied: "Search me, I don't know how we all got here in the first place!"

Parks Pardoned
The Alabama State Legislature has officially pardoned the late Rosa Parks for her 1956 arrest for refusing to give up her seat on a Montgomery city bus. But the legislature is still refusing to pardon Parks for being black.

OMD Nominee
President Bush has nominated Rob Portman to be the next director of the Office of Management and Budget. But it's unclear what Portman's duties will be since the Bush administration doesn't really keep a budget.

Late Filing
About 15 million Americans did not file their taxes on time this year. Most of them were accountants who were too busy doing everyone else's taxes.

SF Quake Anniversary
Experts say the 1906 San Francisco earthquake did $8.2 billion worth of damage in today's dollars. So when you figure for inflation, that means the quake did about 50 cents worth of damage in 1906.

Nebraska Segregation
The Nebraska state legislature has voted to divide the Omaha school system into two districts -- one mostly white and one largely black and Hispanic. So, I guess the five non-white kids in Omaha are going to get their own school!

5) Can't bring himself to support anyone with "Jew" in his name

4) No New York TV stations carry the "Old Time Gospel Hour"

Some Muslims say conveying a positive image of Islam is tougher now than it was after the Sept. 11 attacks. Hmmm... I wonder why?

Muslim Image III
Some Muslims say conveying a positive image of Islam is tougher now than it was after the Sept. 11 attacks... but they still think things are better than when Jamie Farr was on M*A*S*H* every day.

Ryan Convicted
Former Illinois Governor George Ryan was convicted of racketeering and fraud Monday. The jury says the smoking gun in the case came when the prosecutors proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Ryan was indeed a Republican.

Chocolate Bunnies
Easter has some strange customs; like the idea of a bunny that lays chocolate eggs. I can't tell if that's just for the kids or a part of the Bush Administration's "Creationism Science" curriculum.

Top 5 Tips for Cheering Up Donald Rumsfeld

5) A nice new war in Iran

4) Whatever you do, DON'T let him go hunting with Dick Cheney

Pope's Message
Pope Benedict XVI prayed for peace in Iraq and the Holy Land in his Easter sermon. Benedict wants the armies of the world to stop fighting each other and start focusing on just killing gays.

Molly is Free!
After a two-week ordeal, New York City firefighters finally freed Molly the cat from inside the wall of a Greenwich Village building. But if they'll do that for just one cat, why can't they do anything for the 700,000 New Yorkers trapped on Staten Island?

Playboy Targeted

Playboy Targeted II
About 300 Muslims in Indonesia vandalized the local Playboy Magazine's offices Wednesday. It's not clear whether they were protesting immodesty or fake boobs.

The Universe Corp.

Message from the CEO, GOD

To the Religious Services management team:

It has come to my attention that many Christian groups are beginning to observe the Jewish Seder ritual. While this is a credit to your marketing department's abilities and wide-ranging appeal, we need to be concerned about diluting our universally appealing, but separate, religion branding efforts across the globe. I hope I don't have to remind you what a fiasco the "Jews for Jesus" plan was. Needless to say, I don't want to see another venture turn into a business that can only gain customer attention by bothering people on subways and bus stations.

It is also proving particularly detrimental to our Arab/Muslim division, (already lagging behind every other unit of this corporation in moral profits and earnings per share), where anything identified as "Jewish" in nature is quite toxic at the moment. Rest assured that the "Accounting For Your Actions" department is tackling this continuing problem in the Muslim world right now, but our quarterly results are a priority at this time.

Representatives from our long-term strategy division are available with some solutions for your most integrated markets, the best of which is a new plan to have Jewish groups simply invite a non-Jew or two to each individual Seder. Specific questions about this plan are available for your review on the company's intranet system.

Please realize that as CEO, and the Master of the Universe, the concerns of the shareholders must be my first priority. I would hate to see centuries worth of hard work sacrificed on the false altar known as "synergy."

Have a pleasant day.
