Poorly Organized Peace Activists of America March on Washington
WASHINGTON (DPI) - The Poorly Organized Peace Activists of America yesterday brought their anti-war message to Washington. Poor planning, however, caused problems with the march. "Our biggest issue was location," said Marco Kent, POPAA's president. "Some members are currently in Washington state or on Mt. Washington, and some somehow ended up at Washington's grave." Additional problems resulted when the organization failed to notify District of Columbia police and moved into Dupont Circle during rush hour. POPAA is hoping to have another march, although they don't expect to be ready for "like three years, maybe," said Kent.

New Alan Jackson Song Contains Even More Ignorant
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (DPI) - Encouraged by the success of his hit
single "Where Were You (When the Lights Went Out),"
country star Alan Jackson has set to work on a sequel.
In "Where Were You," Jackson expressed pride at not
knowing the difference between Iraq and Iran. In his
new single, "Where Was I (When Geography Class Was
Going On)," Jackson spins yet another heart-warming
tale of his lack of knowledge of all things
non-American. In his new release, Jackson serenades listeners with
his confusion between Austria and Australia,
Switzerland and Sweden, and Cancun and Canada.

Hussein Kills Image-Softeners
BAGHDAD, Iraq (DPI) - Consultants hired by Saddam Hussein to soften his image
were executed on Monday as his international approval ratings remained stagnant. The consultants, who advised the Iraqi leader to wear
more earth tones and to shy away from the retro-Josef Stalin look, were
beaten and beheaded, then dragged through the streets with piano wire. The Iraqi government issued a statement noting that Hussein's execution of the unsuccessful consultants only shows the world "how serious (he) is about reforming his image with the international community."

Woman Kills Husband for Drinking Bottled-Water Supply
BOSTON (DPI) - Debra-Jo Turner remained in police custody this evening after the body of Wayne Turner was found in a Dumpster full of empty Poland Spring water jugs. "I told him that water was there to save our lives, that President Bush and Tom Ridge told me I needed to have 2 gallons of water for each person in our family," Turner said as officers led her away. "It's like Wayne doesn't even care that I had to fight Emma's Sunday School teacher for the last jug. So you can understand why I just completely lost it when I saw him using the jugs to fill the fish tank." Dinah Booth, the Sunday School teacher, could not be reached for comment.

NRA Defends Saddam's Possession of Chemical Weapons
WASHINGTON (DPI) - The National Rifle Association today endorsed Iraq's right to possess weapons of mass destruction. NRA spokesman Colt Winchester called U.S. demands that Saddam Hussein disarm an obvious breach of the Iraqi leader's Second Amendment rights. "They start off by taking weapons of mass destruction away from totalitarian dictators, but where will it end?" said Winchester. "Next thing you know, the left wing is in your own house trying to take away your long range missiles." The NRA also announced plans for a Million Cold Dead Hands March for later in the month.

Americans Demand Bribe to Support War, "Just Like Turkey"
WASHINGTON (DPI) - After hearing about the multi-billion-dollar bribe
package President Bush is offering Turkey for its war support, American
voters have organized to demand a bribe for their own endorsement. "Why should the foreigners get all the bribe money?" said Marjorie Douglas, president of Americans For Iraqi War Bribes. "Many Americans oppose the war, but could be brought around for just pennies on the dollar of what it costs to buy foreign allies." Responding to such calls for bribes for American war support, Bush said, "That's what the tax cuts were for. It certainly wasn't an economic policy."

Christian Fundamentalists Torn Over Possibility of New Crusades
PARIS, Texas (DPI) - Once they had absorbed the full impact of President Bush's post-invasion plans for Iraq, Christian Fundamentalists were surprisingly of two minds on a possible war. "While I of course support any efforts to beat some Jesus into those Muslims, I just don't see how turning Iraq into a moderate Islamic democracy is going to help bring about Armageddon," said Buford Giles, a local businessman and member of the Paris First Bible Church. "I thought we could trust Bush to do whatever is necessary to unleash the Four Horsemen and bring about the End Times and the Second Coming of our Lord and Savior. Who would have thought George would be getting all 'stability' and 'democracy' on us? As it is, our last best hope for global war is that those crazy Israelis finally snap, because,
well, there ain't no Koreans in the Bible."

Ridge Warns of Color-Sensitive Terrorist Threat
WASHINGTON (DPI) - Lowering the "actual" threat level from orange to yellow moves the "real" threat level up to red, Secretary of Homeland Defense Tom Ridge explained today. "Because terrorists are more likely to attack when they believe our citizens are less vigilant, it is important for Americans to become more watchful the very moment we tell them to be less so," said Ridge. He also noted that if the threat became so remote that a blue level, the lowest risk of terrorist threat, was ever introduced, the Administration would be forced to consider instituting martial law.

U.S. Straining France's Ability to Offend Others
PARIS (DPI) - France's ongoing war of words with the United States over military action against Iraq has severely limited French ability to be rude to others. Even neighboring countries like Austria and Switzerland agree the once virulent and obnoxious behavior the French used to toss around like old baguettes has now all but disappeared. "It is the Americans' fault!" said Pierre Montshat, a French government spokesman. "They keep coming up with reason after reason to oust Saddam, each of which must be answered with blind indignation and pithy rudeness. Contrary to popular belief, we only have so much of that stuff to throw around." The effects of the insolence shortage also can be felt at street level in Paris. Hans Stoffer, a Belgian businessman, said he's shocked when his French waiter expresses gratitude after collecting a substantial tip. "Normally, they spit on your shoes regardless of what you leave," said Stoffer, "This is not normal and it makes me quite nervous."
