The Daily Probe Declares Mr. T "Person of the Year"

LOS ANGELES (DPI) - The Daily Probe has declared kitschy '80s TV personality Mr. T its 2002 "Person of the Year," recognizing the actor's popular hair and timeless TV catchphrases. Star of the riveting and violent A-Team on NBC from 1983-1987, T was part of a crack commando team sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. Today, Mr. T is a TV commercial spokesman and acknowledged "tough peace" advocate. His efforts to resolve the political crisis in the Middle East led The Daily Probe to choose him as 2002 "Person of the Year." In recognition of the honor, Mr. T was presented with a gold medallion.

In the Aftermath of 9/11, Fool-Pitying at All-Time High

NEW YORK (DPI) - Post-traumatic stress psychologists report that the nation has moved through the cycles of denial, shock, grief and anger, and are now in the stages of feeling pity for the fools who committed the terrorist acts in New York and Washington. As the military gears up to eradicate terrorism, most Americans now just shake their heads in a pitying acknowledgment of the terrorists' foolishness. Leading this wave of fool-pitying is actor Mr. T, a longtime voice of pity for the foolish. T, expressing America's feelings, issued a statement simply reading, "I pity the fools that don't pity the fools."

Mr. Whipple Accused of Charmin Abuse

CINCINNATI (DPI) - Procter & Gamble announced beloved spokesman Mr. Whipple's history of "inappropriate" Charmin fondling. According to P&G, between 1973 and 1986 numerous complaints had been filed against Whipple by employees, including an incident in which a witness caught Whipple with a double roll 12-pack in 1977. Additionally, P&G is accused of trying to cover up the abuses by reassigning Whipple to other positions resulting in additional complaints including "incidents of inappropriate groping" of Pampers and Bounty paper towels. Whipple's attorney accused his client's accusers of hypocrisy saying, "any transgressions against Charmin by my client pale in comparison to the acts of abuse carried out by millions of users of the product."

Israeli Forces to Deploy Clowns to Help Suicidal Palestinians

JENIN, WEST BANK (DPI) - In an attempt to defuse the suicidal despair among Palestinians that has led to repeated bombings, Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon has instructed troops occupying this refugee camp of 10,000 to hand out flowers as they bulldoze the homes of suspected terrorists, and to don clown suits as they launch missiles at terrorist targets. Further steps to help calm Palestinian rage are already planned: Tanks are to be painted in cheerful primary colors, and candy-packed piņatas are to be handed out after every firefight. Plans to have Apache attack helicopters dispense balloon animals are still in development.

Weird Kid Never Outgrew Love of Eating

ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA (DPI) - Brian Leonard, that paste-eating weirdo from fourth grade art class, confesses that he never outgrew his love for consuming the tacky, gooey substance. "Ever since I first shoved a handful of sticky paste into my mouth, I've been an Elmer's connoisseur," the 43-year-old accountant said. "I slather it on bread and mix it in soups. But nothing compares with scooping it fresh out of the bottle with that plastic lid-attached applicator." Leonard is aware of the stigma attached to his snacking preference, however: "Getting called 'weirdo' and 'freakazoid' by kids was one thing, but adults are completely close-minded to non-toxic adhesive product consumption."

Baseball Players, Pharmacists Celebrate First Weeks of New Season

TAMPA (DPI) - As the mercury climbs higher, the "Boys of Summer" and the "Guys in Lab Coats" are under way in another exciting season of major league baseball and 21st Century biotechnology. Thanks to Swatinox, a powerful new pharmaceutical, 85% of players are expected to break Barry Bonds's 73 home run season from last year. According to Merck spokesman Walt Anderson, "Now even most pitchers should hit .550 this season." Swatinox may have some competition of its own, however. Pfizer today introduced Bazookanol, a performance-enhancing drug for major league pitchers that promises a fastball capable of breaking the sound barrier.
