FBI to Shift Focus From Law Enforcement to Soup, Sandwiches

WASHINGTON (DPI) - FBI Director Robert Mueller today announced a radical new plan for overhauling the FBI, transitioning it from the nation's top crime watchdog to a leading vendor of healthy, fast-food alternative meals. "The time is right to change our core function from crime prevention to low-fat food franchises," said Mueller.



The new FBI (Family Bistros, Inc.) anticipates that by not tracking terrorist activities and instead selling heart-smart foods such as fresh bagels and delicious cobb salads, it can reduce terrorism intelligence-gathering gaffes by up to 40 percent in the first year alone. According to Mueller, "Nothing reduces the potential for screwing up like lowering people's expectations of you."

India, Pakistan Exchange Atomic Curry

LAS VEGAS (DPI) - What began as a conventional international buffet at the MGM Grand Hotel escalated into a full nuclear-food exchange this week as competing chefs representing the Indian and Pakistani food carts stopped their diplomatic discussions about "better" cuisine and moved into an actual battle of "hottest" cuisine. Even if the two chefs had fought a war with their conventional foods, it would have had a profound effect on the stomachs of hotel patrons from every nation. Now, in the aftermath of the devastation, it is easy to see that this conflagration produced no winners, and the cost to the hotel's plumbing system is almost immeasurable.

Searchers Find JFK's Boat Littered With Shell Damage, Lingerie

SOLOMON ISLANDS (DPI) - Excited oceanographers confirmed finding John F. Kennedy's historic WWII Navy boat PT-109 this week. "The boat was heavily damaged by Japanese torpedoes, so at first we weren't sure," said expedition leader Robert Ballard. "But when we found the empty liquor bottles and women's black see-through teddies in the commander's quarters, we were sure we'd found an important piece of the family history." The boat will be faithfully restored and displayed in the Smithsonian, complete with figurines of Lt. Kennedy and "some of the locals." For his next venture, Ballard plans on searching Chappaquiddick Bay for the wreckage of Ted Kennedy's car.

MLB Steroid Use Up, Balls Seem Smaller

NEW YORK (DPI) - A recent survey of MLB players inspired by recent confessions by former MVP Ken Caminiti finds that steroid use is indeed increasing among players, who also report the added benefit of steroids making balls appear smaller. "When I do the juice," says an anonymous AL power hitter, "not only do I get bigger and stronger, but the balls seem to be shrinking." Experts agree this may explain the recent dramatic increase in home run hitting. "This could explain why players like Maguire, Sosa and Bonds can break decades-old home run records," said one official. "The balls are so much smaller."

Shuttle Launch Delayed by Airport Security

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (DPI) - For the second day in a row, the space shuttle Endeavour's launch on a mission to the international space station was called off, this time when astronaut Peggy Whitson failed to show proper ID. "I lost my wallet last week and haven't had time to wait at the DMV during launch week," said Whitson. NASA spokesperson Carl Jacobs explained, "We are upholding the strictest of standards as to who may fly on US aircraft. Miss Whitson did not have proper ID so we couldn't let her board." The first launch attempt was scrubbed Sunday when another astronaut tried to carry a nail file through security.

New York Destroyed as Dry Cleaner Loses Spider-Man's Costume

NEW YORK (DPI) - New York City was reduced to ashes today after a madman detonated a stolen nuclear bomb without intervention from Spider-Man. "Normally I take my outfit to Henry's One-Hour Cleaning on 15th Street because they're really reliable," said the embarrassed web-slinger, "but I had a $2 off coupon for some new place on 7th Avenue." When he returned to pick up the trademark costume, the cleaner had lost the outfit and instead returned to him a black strapless Vera Wang evening gown. "I sure wish I could have stopped the bomber," said the unmasked Peter Parker, "but even a superhero has his limits on what he's going to wear to save the city."

Shocker: Greenspan Enters Booger-Eaters Anonymous

WASHINGTON, DC (DPI) - Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan surprised the financial world yesterday by joining the Booger-Eaters Anonymous rehabilitation program. "It's something that's haunted me since I was in second grade," said Greenspan, "and I felt it was time to deal with it once and for all." Shocked colleagues said they knew there was a problem, but had no idea it was so bad. "I thought he had things under control," volunteered investment banker Lawrence Vindicuff. "I'd see him 'sampling his nasal wares' every now and then, but I never got the impression that he was an addict."
