Trekkie a Surprisingly Good Lay

CHICAGO (DPI)- Chris Malvin, 38, is a die-hard Trekkie and, according to one woman, surprisingly good in bed. "I was pleasantly shocked," said Kathy Rault, an attractive, divorced 27-year-old software executive. "It wasn't mind-blowing sex, mind you. More like competent and forgettable, which is way more than I was expecting." Rault acknowledged her night of unexpectedly passable passion will come with a price. "Oh I know, I'm going to get teased," she said. "But I've got to say, all that screaming in Klingon near the end was, well, kinda hot."

Fourth-Graders Re-enact World Trade Center Attack

LYNCHBURG, Va. (DPI) - As part of a second-anniversary observance of the terrorist strikes that hit New York City, Shanksville, Penn., and Washington, the fourth-grade class at Lynchburg Unified Elementary School recreated the World Trade Center attacks on their soccer field. Before nearly 70 onlookers, a pair of remote-controlled aircraft with children at the controls crashed into two 13-foot-high Popsicle-stick replicas of the twin towers. The event drew many critics, including the Shenandoah Valley Model Pilots Association, a spokesman for which pointed out that "9-year-olds can't recreate the impact as precisely as experienced model-airplane pilots." Next year's ceremonies will focus on the geometry class' study of the Pentagon.

Asshole Driver Conceals Self in Hybrid Car

LOS ANGELES (DPI) - An unidentified jerk menaced his way through traffic on the 405 freeway today behind the wheel of a Honda Insight, taking other motorists by surprise. "This guy was next to me in traffic and I thought, 'Hey, a hybrid car -- what a caring soul,' then he cut me off," said Ann Olsen of Long Beach. "I honked because I almost hit him and he jumped out of his car and threatened me with a tree spike." Other drivers who encountered the economical, eco-friendly car were treated to rude hand gestures and shouts of "oil-burning bitch." The U.S. Department of Transportation cautioned consumers to be wary of hybrid vehicles whose drivers are used to piloting small boats in front of whaling ships.

Captured Defense Minister Trades Up for Better Playing Card

TIKRIT, Iraq (DPI) - After lengthy negotiations, Saddam Hussein's former defense minister, Gen. Sultan Hashim Ahmad, surrendered to U.S. authorties in exchange for a better position on the "Iraqi Most Wanted" deck of playing cards. According to sources, Ahmad, the former eight of hearts, would have turned himself in weeks ago had he not been so embarrassed by his low placement. "A man of the defense minister's standing could not bear for his loved ones to see his face all over the press on such a degrading card," said a negotiator for Ahmad. To comply, the United States issued the new deck with Ahmad as the six of spades, a powerful trump card in the card game Spades.

Hurricane Isildur Casts N.C. Into Shadow of Enemy

KILL DEVIL HILLS, N.C. (DPI) - Hurricane Isildur, Carolina Bane, laid waste the sylvan Outer Banks of North Carolina last week. Not since Tropical Storm Galadriel diminished and went into the West has a storm brought such despair unto the lands of the Mid-Atlantic Coast. Residents reported hearing songs of Arwen Evenstar on the winds blowing in from the Eastern Sea, transporting all to Elder Days and emergency shelters. Said traveler Samwise Gamgee, "My old gaffer did tell of a wondrous wind once in the South Farthing, but he never stood against a power as this, if you take my meaning."

Networks Plan Alternative Lifestyle Queer Eye Copycats

LOS ANGELES (DPI) - Other networks are hoping to copy the success of Bravo's Queer Eye for the Straight Guy with their own alternative lifestyle make-over shows. ABC will air Geek Week for the Tres Chic, in which rich, attractive people will spend a week learning from computer nerds how to program VCRs, install DSL modems, and quote lines from Monty Python movies. CBS will counter with Transvestites for the Uptight, in which stuffy businessmen will learn how to cross-dress for success. Finally, Fox plans "S&M for the SUVs," in which soccer moms are trained as sex slaves for their yuppie husbands.

Classroom in Uproar over Electric Fan Voice Distortion Trick

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (DPI) - Students in Sheila Betts' third-grade class were agog with the discovery by class clown Brandon DeMorales that the room's oscillating fan can double as a magic robot voice-speaker. Appearing before the 19-student room during Betts' 20-minute silent reading period, DeMorales, 8, received cheers for his spot-on rendition of the theme from Spongebob Squarepants. The eight minutes of resulting pandemonium were exacerbated by a subsequent colorful discussion about how Meghan Kim's cousin sticked her finger in a fan this one time and it ripped her nail off and there was a bunch of blood and she had to go to the hospital.
