US Fans Mildly Irritated After World Cup Loss
LOS ANGELES (DPI) - On the heels of its recent elimination by Germany from
World Cup competition, Team USA's plane was greeted by flaccid belligerence
from fans at LAX. Five or six fans with nothing better to do greeted the
team with tersely worded signs and lukewarm jeers. "We're somewhat concerned
here," said one fan, wagging a finger in consternation. "You got beat by,
uh, France, right?" One slightly miffed banner proclaimed, "You guys lost."
The sluggishly unruly crowd murmured some lackluster insults, threw some gum
wrappers, and then went home, still a little disgusted, to watch baseball.

Hamas Admits It's Too "Bomb-ey"
JERUSALEM (DPI) - In a surprising statement, the terrorist group Hamas
admitted that "perhaps" suicide bombings are being too casually used
when a Palestinian teen tried to blow up his parents for not being
allowed to stay up to watch Jay Leno. A Hamas
spokesman noted that suicide bombing has become
a catch-all for every petty demand, and possibly should be scaled
back. "Department stores are the worst," the spokesman said. "Everyone's
on the floor with a cord in their hand negotiating for a new toy, home
appliance, or golf clubs. I don't even want to think about when the
Ramadan shopping season starts."

Community Hopes New Casino Will Boost Stagnant Organized Crime Industry
JERSEY CITY, N.J. (DPI) - As Jersey City struggles to work its way out
of economic slowdown, citizens are overwhelmingly supporting the new "Lady
Luck" casino to boost the mafia backbone of the economic community. Says
mayor Pete Hodges, "Due to layoffs in other sectors, people have less
disposable income to spend on compulsions and addictions. This has been
really hard on the mafia, and if we don't do something, a lot of narcotics,
prostitution and loan-sharking jobs will go out of state." Citizens also say
that thanks to the new casino, the community will also benefit from all the
kickbacks to the mob from the contractors who built it.

Woman Very Angry at Misbehaving Celeb She Doesn't Know
LOS ANGELES (DPI) - Cindy Court is very angry with producer
Steven Bing, a man she did not know existed before yesterday's news
accounts, for treating British model-actress Elizabeth Hurley, a person
she's never met, so callously during their paternity fight. "If you look
at Liz's Estee Lauder ads," Court notes of a shoot taken 13 months ago,
"you can see the concern about the contested pregnancy in her eyes. And
Bing was all strung out on painkillers and busy chasing hookers,"
she explains, confusing the producer for an amalgam of Hurley's real
life friend Matthew Perry, Perry's fictional Friends character Chandler
Bing and Hurley's former boyfriend Hugh Grant.

Bush Drafting New Anti-Terrorism Plan
Man to Use Super Powers Only for Profit
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. (DPI)- Walter Novak, who acquired super powers after
being bitten by a genetically-altered mosquito recently, plans to use his
power only for making money, and "sometimes for picking up chicks," he
reported today. His current plans center on putting his super strength
and laser shooters toward a construction business, fighting off his
arch-nemesis, foreman Bob Jarvis at Jacob's Construction Co. At the
time of this interview, Novak seemed to be particularly enjoying the
possibilities his X-ray vision held for his future.

Former East German Official to Advise on Israeli Fence Construction
BERLIN (DPI) - Frustrated with his country's own attempt to build a
security wall, Prime Minister Ariel Sharon sent an envoy to the former East
Berlin today to consult with Heinrich Helter, who had been chief engineer
under the Communist East German regime. "Nobody can build a wall like
we can," said Helter. "If it wasn't for this damn peace, that wall
would have lasted for 200 years."

America's Homeless Experiencing Longest Period of Recession
WASHINGTON (DPI) - The U.S. Treasury Department released its annual fiscal
budget today and found that the homeless class, that is those Americans
without homes, is experiencing the longest period of recession of any
economic group currently living in the United States. "We feel that the long
recession among the homeless is due to a lack of a regular income and
inability to retain jobs for extended periods of time," said Treasury
Secretary Paul O'Neill. O'Neill estimated that the homeless have been
experiencing this recession for more than 100 years due to factors including
the stock market crash of 1929 and their lack of homes.

Amish Drag Race Leads to Broken Axle, Four Weeks of Sloth
LANCASTER, Pa. (DPI)- An horse-and-buggy drag race
between Amish teenagers Amos King and David Beiler led to a collision, injury and sin
last Tuesday. The buggies were traveling at nearly 20 mph as they rounded a
corner and encountered
Rebecca Fisher carrying a milk bucket from barn to
house. In an effort to avoid collision, King
swerved into the ditch, breaking the axle as well as
his arm in two. The sloth to be begat by King's
inevitable weeks of bedrest is thought to be curable
by serious prayer for salvation from wickedness.

Workplace Toilet Abstinence Record Unceremoniously Broken
WORCESTER, Mass. (DPI) - Island Insurance employee Vera Mangello
broke her two-year record of never pooping at work when a bad batch of
chicken salad rapidly worked its way through her system Wednesday afternoon.
"I was horrified," claimed Mangello. "I swore I'd never, you know, at work
because it's just embarrassing as all heck." In a related story, Wednesday
was the 275th day in a row co-worker Ray Walsh announced to officemates, "If
you need me, I'll be in the library," as he took a copy of USA Today into the
first-floor men's room.
