Bush Brushes Aside Magic 8-Ball Protest,
Pushes Ahead With War


WASHINGTON (DPI) - Despite repeated protests from his Magic 8-Ball, President Bush is determined to go to war with Iraq. Thousands of queries to the device yielded impassioned anti-war protests last week. Asked if the war will go smoothly, the peaceful 8-Ball answered, "No." Asked if the United States will maintain its commitment in a post-war Iraq, the 8-Ball replied, "Ask again later." Asked if U.S. assertion of power will lead to grudging respect in NATO and the United Nations, the 8-Ball replied, "What, are you kidding me?" Bush forged ahead with war plans, saying, "In a democracy, our toys are entitled to their opinions, but this is a serious life-or-death matter of American security. 8-Ball or no 8-Ball, I'm going to war."

People Start Hating SUV Owners Again

BALTIMORE (DPI) - People throughout the Northeast are beginning to hate SUV owners all over again. During the Presidents Day blizzard, SUV owners performed such vital tasks as taking doctors to the hospital, hoarding duct tape from Home Depot, and critical replenishing of liquor supplies. But as streets are plowed and people dig out, they are quickly slipping in public opinion. A DPI poll in the capital region showed the popularity of SUV owners has fallen below that of the French, which is actually below pre-blizzard levels. "My neighbor has been gloating for the last several days about how he was able to drive in the snow," said one resident. "Luckily, his Suburban is still rolled on its side along I-95."

Student Recovering After Discovering Wrong Way to Eat a Reese's

MELBOURNE, Australia (DPI) - Intermediate School student Kelli Leonard, 12, was in stable condition after undergoing emergency surgery to repair damage caused by eating a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup in a previously undiscovered wrong way. "We were shocked at not only the cause, but also the severity of the injuries to Miss Leonard," said Box Hill Hospital spokeswoman Cary Jessier. "Injuries of this type are unheard-of in modern snack food consumption." According to Jessier, the trauma surgery team performed multiple skin grafts, orthopedic restoration and an emergency transplant of three of Leonard's peanut-butter clogged organs. The injury is thought to be the worst in Australia's snack-food community since 1994, when a 23-year-old man underwent multiple surgeries and months of physical rehabilitation after discovering something that wasn't better when it sat on a Ritz.

Crapper Killer Acquitted

FORT WORTH, Texas (DPI) - Carl Evans is a free man once again after his acquittal on charges he murdered coworker Matthew Pickard with a toilet seat. His jury returned the verdict today after listening silently, some in tears, while Evans testified in his own defense during his trial in state district court. From the witness stand, he recounted the day six months ago when he stepped into the men's-room stall Pickard had just vacated only to find a wet seat. "I blacked out after that," Evans told a packed courtroom. "They tell me they found Matt dead at his desk, with the seat still dripping and hanging around his neck, but I don't remember any of that." In arguing for a not-guilty verdict, defense lawyers cited Texas' "He Needed Killin'" statute.

Origin of Boogers Tops 2nd-Grade Bestseller List

NEW YORK (DPI) - Seven-year-old author Ryo Matsuki's The Origin of Boogers by Means of Finger Selection is atop the national second-grade bestseller list for the 18th consecutive week. Matsuki, whose previous novel, The Adventures of Dingleberry Ken, also spent time on the bestseller list, has steadfastly denied accusations that his works are plagiarized from famous books, saying through his agent, "I didn't copy nothing, Mom." Fans of the author's work are ebullient in their praise for his latest. "Man, it's cool -- there's boogers and snot in almost every paragraph!" said Mikey Pitzer, 8. Matsuki is not without his detractors, though. Amy Monahan, 8, claimed she couldn't get past the first chapter, labeling the tome "really, really gross."

Coffee Shop Freak Getting Weirder and Weirder

TABLE BEHIND YOU (DPI) - An obvious freak who sat down at the Coffee Talk coffee shop 20 minutes ago is clearly not getting any less weird, her behavior would indicate. Entering quietly wearing a sandblaster's filter mask, a cast on one arm and leopard-print shoes, the woman set off key freak sensors immediately, reaching Code Red when she set an expensive-looking Pentax camera and Sony Handycam on the table and sat silently rummaging through a plastic grocery bag for several minutes. The woman, thought to be in her late 50s and either Chinese or Korean, then spent the next 11 minutes studying the shop's menu while other patrons pretended not to look at her. The woman is currently said to be negotiating detailed sales terms on a vegetarian sandwich with "no meat."
