Technical Problems Continue to Plague Cubicle Idiot

ST. LOUIS (DPI) - Roland Vales of CyberDyne Corporation reports continued computer-related difficulties that prevent him from utilizing his newly downloaded sounds. "Last week, it was the speakers that suddenly stopped working, right after I downloaded a whole bunch of new noises," Vales said. "It turned out the wires had suddenly gone missing. Once I got that fixed, the very next day I found my sound card had somehow worked its way out of the port and gotten covered with coffee. Strange." Vales' mouse, keyboard and monitor have all suffered unexplained outages recently, coinciding with his return from training classes in the e-mail and voicemail systems.

Network Cancels Sitcom Yet To Be Thought Of

LOS ANGELES (DPI) - In what will go down as the quickest and harshest cancellation in television history, ABC executives from the year 2034 time-traveled to the present day to prevent the births of the creative team responsible for that year's disastrous sitcom, President Gerbil. The sitcom, about a blind Secret Service agent guarding a hip-hop talking gerbil accidentally elected U.S. president, was responsible for millions of deaths. While many have questioned whether time travel technology could be used more judiciously, an unnamed network exec responded by noting, "Look, this thing starred a 66-year-old Gary Coleman as the Gerbil. Trust us on this one."

Researchers Discover Person Not Changed By 9/11

BAYAN ULGII, MONGOLIA (DPI): Hanginy Sumya, a Mongolian goatherd, shocked researchers when he stated that his nomadic desert life had not been changed in the least by the events of Sept. 11, 2001. "I live in my yurt and herd my goats, same as last year, the year before, and the year before that. Did something happen I should know about?" Sumya asked. "Don't tell me Nyamsuren's goats have the mange again!" Researchers are next heading to India and China to investigate unsubstantiated rumors of 2.3 billion additional unaffected people.

Official: "Forget Iraq, Fix Fifth-Floor Bathroom"

MIAMI (DPI) - A low-level Department of Justice official has told the Daily Probe that before the administration takes on the task of invading Iraq and ousting Saddam Hussein, all appropriate government resources should be devoted to replacing the little plastic handle on the paper towel dispenser in the fifth-floor bathroom of the Miami Federal Courthouse. "First things first," said the official. "Without that little plastic knob, the bare metal handle has been giving me a blister for going on five months now. You wouldn't even need a U.N. resolution or the French or anything."

Elected Officials Struggle to Replace Enron Campaign Donations

WASHINGTON (DPI) - With many corporations gun-shy about making the massive campaign donations by which Washington's elite have traditionally funded their lifestyles, elected officials on both sides of the aisle are admitting to really missing that Enron money. "Man, I've really had to cut back since this Enron scandal broke," lamented one Democratic senator on condition of anonymity. "I'm down to two interns and one mistress. Fuck." Republicans also were feeling the pinch. "That asshole Lay just had to get greedy," said one unnamed Cabinet member. "He couldn't be satisfied with eight-figure compensation. He had to shoot for nine figures and screwed it up for all of us -- and after all we've done for him."

Johnson & Johnson Targets Fake-Wound Market

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (DPI) - In an effort to boost sagging sales, Johnson & Johnson introduced two new products this week: Box of Scabs and Burn-in-a-Bottle. Box of Scabs allows consumers to simulate horrible flesh wounds without causing physical pain or permanent damage, while Burn-in-a-Bottle is a "hyper-tanning agent," according to a company official Ruby Alewife enthusiastically recommended the products, saying, "My boss let me leave early three days in a row. People cannot tell the difference." Johnson & Johnson marketing manager Rafael DiTomasso said that the company would also be rolling out two more new products in the near future: Smashed Thumb brand black fingernail polish for kids, and Gang-Green leg appliqués.

Terrorist Partygoer Threat Averted

MIAMI (DPI) - Alert Jacksonville bus-stop waitress Marlene Francis, using Operation TIPS, the federal government's new terrorist-reporting program, aided the FBI in preventing a threat to Miami by Brett "Moondog" Harkens, Jonathan "Mirror Man" Strickland and Gort McKivney. The three, members of a secretive campus organization at Florida State University, were overheard threatening to, among other things, "totally tear the fuckin' city down, man," "make the beaches our own, dawg!" and "leave a trail of panting women in our wakes," apparent references to a terrorist attack of some kind. The trio were stopped doing 105 on Alligator Alley, and drug-sniffing dogs were reportedly called to the scene.
