Bush Pledges Federal Dollars for Swing-State Hurricane Victims

SCRANTON, Pa. (DPI) - President Bush promised $3.4 billion in federal relief today for states that were or weren't devastated from hurricane damage. Remarkably, over 80 percent of these funds will be given to Pennsylvania and Ohio, states that were only slightly dampened by Hurricane Frances. The president justified the aid, claiming that merely seeing the damage in Florida wrought by Frances on television or hearing about it from a co-worker had "caused immeasurable psychological trauma to millions of registered voters" in the two swing states.

Swift Boat Vets: JFK "Pansy"; Dallas Wounds "Not That Bad"

BOSTON (DPI) - Swift Boat Veterans for Truth continued their attack upon Democratic politicians who were wounded while serving their country, claiming that President John F. Kennedy's assassination consisted of "superficial wounds." According to Swift Boat spokesman Van Odell, "I knew guys in Nam who got shot five or six times and signed up for another tour of duty. But that candy-ass Kennedy takes a few slugs and he flops over like a sack of potatoes." Odell said that the group is seeking to have the eternal flame at Kennedy's grave extinguished as well.

North Korean Explosions Intended to Quell "Zombie Attack"

SEOUL, South Korea (DPI) - North Korean Foreign Minister Paek Nam-Sun and several defense officials claim the explosion and mushroom cloud spotted last Thursday was to destroy a zombie outbreak, which occurred near the village of Everett after some plucky teenagers unearthed a nerve gas causing the dead to rise and walk again. Nam-Sun said the explosion was not a test of their nuclear capabilities, but only an internal military action to stop the zombies from spreading. "This was not a pre-emptive strike against anyone or retaliation for any subsequent military actions," Nam-Sun said. "Unless you count the zombies."

Kerry Announces Plan to Tax Campaign Contributors

COLUMBUS, Ohio (DPI) - In a surprise move, John Kerry said anyone "rich enough to contribute money to my campaign" would pay higher taxes under his latest economic plan. "After the election, we'll get the donation records from the Bush campaign, too, but at the moment we can only promise to tax those who donate to us," said Kerry campaign spokesman David Wade. Speaking to a rapidly emptying room, vice presidential candidate John Edwards clarified the plan, saying, "If you're rich enough to donate money, you can give more. If you're rich enough to take two hours off from work to be here right now, then you can give more."

Strange "Penis-less" Man Found

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (DPI) - Researchers at the University of Michigan are examining a recently discovered organism that could have massive implications for humankind: a slightly shorter specimen of a human with absolutely no penis at all. "We at first thought it to be a hoax," said Dr. Zhao Shen, who is leading the investigation. "But blood tests show this individual to be a human, just with a smaller waist, shapelier legs and long hair." The specimen, nicknamed "Barbara," was discovered in a restaurant in New Mexico, where he was working as a waitress, unnoticed among the regular penis-bearing human community. Said Dr. Reid Abel, Dean of the School of Social Sciences, "We intend to continue to collect data on this man's characteristics, including his high-pitched voice, protruding chest and aversion to using gas station restrooms."

Man's Life a Living Heck

SAN FRANCISCO (DPI) - While millions worldwide wallow in the hell of mass starvation and disease, bank officer Gerry Bremend today is suffering through the living heck of heartburn. "This happens each time I eat pepperoni," said Bremend, who earlier reported a "moderately uncomfortable" feeling in his stomach. Bremend is currently contemplating walking two blocks down Montgomery Street to buy some antacid, but he remembered that the elevator in his building is being repaired and he'd have to take the stairs from his third floor office. "This is complete heck," said Bremend, who also just last week got a parking ticket.

Swift Car Drivers for Truth Unveil Conclusive Kerry/Gordon Photo

DAYTON, Ohio (DPI) - Swift Car Drivers for Truth, a group of NASCAR fans who wish to set the record straight on presidential candidate John Kerry's racing past, unveiled photos they say will prove their claims. The photos show a joyful Jeff Gordon celebrating his first-ever Daytona 500 win with an equally thrilled John Kerry, who worked in Team Gordon's pit during the race. "People think George Bush supports NASCAR more than Kerry just because the media plays him out to be a good ol' boy," said group leader John McTiernan. "Actually, the opposite is true." The group's recent efforts were to counter negative ads being produced and aired by conservative group Really Fast Race Car Drivers Who Never Lie. Those ads claim Kerry had consistently exaggerated his racing involvement, and feature interviews with veteran drivers who say Kerry actually didn't participate in the Daytona 500, but rather the Massachusetts Mower-Racing Association's state championship.

Fantasy Footballer Dreams Ricky Back to the Dolphins

MIAMI (DPI) - David Lipton's fantasy football team is the one in which Ricky Williams laid off the marijuana and led the league in rushing for the Miami Dolphins. Lipton's fantasy also includes a version of events in which the Dolphins' top off-season acquisition, David Boston, did not receive a season-ending injury, and Pro-Bowl defensive end, Adawale Ogunleye, accepted the Dolphins' contract offer. Explained Lipton, "Sometimes I have this fantasy in which Jay Fiedler and A.J. Feely both play like Dan Marino, who, by the way, didn't quit his front-office job two weeks after taking it." Lipton's team temporarily suspends operations each morning when his clock radio goes off.
