NBC Warns of Patriotic Retinal Scarring During Olympics Telecast

SALT LAKE CITY, UT (DPI) - In an effort to save television viewers' sight from the blinding patriotism on display at the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics, NBC has distributed special safety glasses to viewers. The glasses, made of a material manufactured in France, will prevent the type of sight loss which affected Ray Charles due to his decades of singing the blindingly patriotic tune America the Beautiful. For viewers who did not get the glasses in time, NBC will flash an "avert eyes" warning each time an American athlete utters the words "real heroes," "New York" or "firemen."

Jacko Goes Gangsta for Upcoming Straight Outta Neverland CD

NEVERLAND RANCH, CA (DPI) - In order to appeal to contemporary tastes, King of Pop Michael Jackson is undertaking a wholesale revamping of his image, including cosmetic surgery to broaden his nose and darken his skin. After the dismal flop of his recent CD, Invincible, which was in the Billboard Top 10 for only hours, Jackson decided that he needed to update his milquetoast image to turn things around. "Yo, mothafuckaz, lizzisten up to Wack Jacko -- I'm back and I'm black, my niggaz!" said Jackson. His upcoming release, Straight Outta Neverland, will feature such potential hits as Kidz in the Bed, Fuck Tha Llamas, and Puppy Dogg Style.

Desperate Man Asking Women to "Be My Phallentine"

COLUMBUS, OH (DPI) - Columbus resident Dan Coleman, 30, has continued his astounding descent into embarrassment with the opposite sex by starting to ask them if they wanted to "be his Phallentine." "He's a nice enough guy," receptionist Jennifer Hajer said of Coleman, a Marketing Director and perennial bachelor, "But then he opens his mouth." Hajer's comments were echoed by about 75 women from the Last Resort Bar and Grill, where Coleman is said to sing "Just A Gigolo" every Tuesday night on karaoke while wearing "really embarrassing" pleather pants. This recent trend marks Coleman's worst public humiliation since Christmas 2001, when he tied mistletoe onto his belt buckle at an office party.

Study: Girls Going 20% Less Wild

WASHINGTON, DC (DPI) - In a revelation sending shockwaves throughout college campuses across the country, the occurrence of girls gone wild has dropped by a shocking 20 percent since September 11, a new report concluded. The report, a project of a non-profit coalition, notes severe reductions in flashing and jiggling among drunken sorority girls. Bush Administration officials, upon hearing of the report, called for a $5-billion bailout for the voyeur-camera industry, and issued a statement calling upon hot wild coeds to do their part to return the nation to its pre-attack free-for-all. Despite the recent drop, experts expect a slight increase in girls going wild 47 days before the first Sunday after the Spring Equinox.

Pro Bowl Excitement Sweeps Tens

HONOLULU (DPI) -- Tens of Americans were caught up in the excitement of Pro Bowl weekend, and dozens more tuned in to the events leading up to "The Big Game" on Saturday. According to ABC, "a whole bunch" of spectators were riveted by the exciting lineup of activities which supposedly culminated with the Pro Bowl itself. As ABC basked in its best sports ratings in years, industry analysts estimated that as many as a few hundred Americans enjoyed the Topps NFL Experience, the Pro Bowl Beach Bowling Bash, the NFL Gatorade Junior Training Camp and other events alleged to have taken place during the past week.

Ashcroft Opposes Stimulus Package, Citing Already-Stimulated Package

"Bush-Daughtered" Replaces "Shitfaced" in US Drunkard Vernacular

MADISON, WI (DPI) - In a press conference this week, The National Council of Drunken College Freshmen unanimously adopted the phrase "Bush-Daughtered" as the preferred way to describe one's extreme intoxication. "Dude, I am totally Bush-Daughtered," commented the council's obviously inebriated President James "El Kegster" Bryant. "We've been pretty Barbara'd all week, baby! I'm pretty Jenna'd right now but not quite Noelled yet. Woo!" Runner-up alternatives to the new phrase included "Party RD (Robert Downey'd)" and "Getting WAYLA (What Are You Looking At)."
