Florida to Use Interpretive Dance to Choose Next Governor

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (DPI) - Reacting to the upcoming recall election in California, Florida Secretary of State Glenda E. Hood announced today that the next governor of Florida will be determined by a "fair, open and transparent" interpretive dance contest. "We worked hard to earn our reputation as the wild and crazy election state," Hood said. "Too hard to lose it to those West Coast posers and their 100-year-old recall laws." Incumbent Gov. Jeb Bush announced plans to seek re-election and to enroll in a remedial modern dance class at Miami-Dade College.

Bush Sends Complaining U.S. Soldiers From Iraq to Liberia

MONROVIA, Liberia (DPI) - Angered by growing reports of discontent from U.S. soldiers over extended tours of duty in Iraq, President Bush has ordered all complaining soldiers sent to Liberia to serve as peacekeepers. "'Waaah, we don't have enough water supplies. Waaah, the Iraqis don't like us and keep shooting at us. Waaah!' Well how do you like Africa, huh, cry-babies?" said Bush, who promised to continue sending them into harm's way and cutting military pay and benefits until the military stopped complaining and let him enjoy his photo opportunities in peace.

Tuesday Catches Everyone Off Guard

LOS ANGELES (DPI) - "Holy shit! Tuesday already?" exclaimed one man, who seemed to sum up the opinion of everyone. "No way is it Tuesday, I've got so much fucking work to do," said another. "Damn." Others blamed the day's unexpected arrival for missed deadlines and skipped appointments. "No way am I scheduling anything important on a Tuesday ever again," lamented one woman. "I mean one day it's Monday and then whammo -- Tuesday smacks you right in the ass." According to etymologists, the word "Tuesday" comes from the Aramaic word "tuuhs," meaning "child of Satan spitting in your face."

Man Wakes Up After Surgery to Find Penis Still There

HOUSTON (DPI) - Carl Banner was in shock after he awoke from penis removal surgery this week to find his penis still there. Instead, the doctors removed his two rather large breasts by mistake. "I've been taking female hormones and have saved for this sex-change surgery for years," said Banner. "Of COURSE my breasts were big." Doctors who performed the procedure seemed confused, as that particular hospital had never performed a sex-change operation. "He wanted his penis removed? Not his unusually large breasts?" said surgeon Sam Hastings. "Because he had these really big breasts, you know."

CIA Says Latest NBC Nightly News is "Probably Authentic"

WASHINGTON (DPI) - After careful analysis of recordings from last night's broadcast of NBC Nightly News With Tom Brokaw, the CIA has announced it is 70 to 80 percent certain that the video is not a forgery. "We're pretty sure that was really Brokaw reading the news," said CIA spokesman Henry Thomas. "However, we again caution the public to wait for our findings before forming their own opinions regarding anything they see or hear."

Shoeless Man Still Crying After Meeting Amputee

LOS ANGELES (DPI) - Good Samaritan Cliff McGee tried yesterday to cheer up Lester Banks, a homeless and shoeless man, by taking him to the UCLA Medical Center's severe trauma ward. "He was on the street whining about having no shoes," said McGee. "So I figured he just needed to meet a man with no feet." Banks, however, was not encouraged, even after meeting a man who had lost both of his legs. "That greedy ingrate [Banks]," fumed McGee. "He was crying even harder when we left the hospital." Banks tried to explain. "I never wanted shoes, I just wanted a drink," he said. "But after seeing that messed-up shit, now I want a drink and some smack!"
