Larry Flynt Named Director of Homeland Pornography

At a press conference this morning, President George W. Bush named Larry Flynt chief coordinating official on a national strategy to strengthen and preserve our country's precious supply of domestically produced porn. "We must stand up to this faceless enemy who wishes to disrupt our daily lives, and I intend to see all Americans - ALL -- vicariously gratified to the utmost fulfillment of their raunchiest fantasies, " Flynt said in a hour long address that followed. Publishing industries should gain the most from the announcement, but film and lubricant sectors also stand to benefit. Flynt plans to immediately begin assembling his crack team of advisors.

Terrorist's Attempt to Hijack Amtrak Train Foiled by Reality

PRINCETON JUNCTION, NJ (DPI) - Suspected terrorist Mohammed bin Hamas hijacked Amtrak's northeast corridor train yesterday with the intention of driving it into the Empire State Building. After conductors explained the mechanics of locomotive travel and the restrictions of rail transit, bin Hamas surrendered the train. Having failed to bring the train to the building, bin Hamas then tried to hijack the building and drive it into Penn Station, leaving only after authorities called building architects to the scene to explain foundation construction. Bin Hamas was last seen on his way to catch the Staten Island Ferry.

"Best By:" Date Results in Unwarranted Optimism, Death

EAST LANSING, MI (DPI) - Local schoolboy Danny Carlysle was killed in a fiery explosion when his colon rejected the Dannon Danimals(tm) Drinkables his mother Karyn provided him for lunch. Mrs. Carlysle, who purchased the yogurt drink food at the Food Club Warehouse store, has been arrested on negligence charges for blatantly ignoring the "best if used by" dates, thus creating dairy landmines. Ironically, Danny was said to favor the "Strawberry Explosion" drinks, which in fact is what caused his demise on the playground last Tuesday. On the plus side, Danny will no longer be required to attend gym class.

Cavemen Discovered in Afghan Mountains
KONDUZ, AFGHANISTAN (DPI) - The Taliban regime has startled the scientific community with the discovery of four male hominids living in a network of caves, possibly sealed off from humanity for thousands of years. Even more startling was that the four had language, knew basic agricultural principles, and were armed to the teeth in advanced weaponry. Additionally, one of the hominids bore a striking resemblance to fugitive Osama bin Laden. Taliban scientists have invited the world's leading anthropologists to observe the creatures labeled homo Osama, to certify that the creatures have absolutely nothing in common with the rest of humanity.

Bin Laden Declares Jihad Against Late Night Drummer Weinberg

KANDAHAR, AFGHANISTAN (DPI) - Terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden has announced a jihad against Late Night With Conan O'Brien drummer Max Weinberg. Whether bin Laden protests Weinberg's Jewish heritage, his background with Bruce Springsteen's salacious "E Street Band," or the drummer's lack of a lumberjack beard remains to be seen, but bin Laden claims that "Weinberg's drum solo in Born to Run was a clear attack against Islam." "Bin Laden may be running out of Arab-world conflicts to exploit for political gain," said Johns Hopkins professor Fouad Ajami. "Now he's hitting pop targets." Ajami's fears are confirmed by bin Laden's videotaped assertion that "that pathetic Monsters, Inc. is a clear sign that we must destroy California! "

Gore Set to Run in Afghan Presidential Race

ISLAMABAD, AFGHANISTAN (DPI) - In a press conference today, former Vice-President and current college professor Al Gore officially announced his candidacy in the upcoming Afghan presidential election.

Forgotten Performers Remembered, Forgotten

BURBANK, CA (DPI) - Anna Maria Alberghetti was inducted into the Performers Nobody Can Remember Hall of Fame last weekend. The Hall, located next door to the Hollywood Squares Museum, honors formerly-famous-and-forgotten stars from sports and the performing arts and as far as anybody knows, consists of hundreds of individual exhibits. Alberghetti, whose 49-year career includes eleven movies, was also the guest of honor at a reception attended by previous obscure inductees. Other inductees, who may or may not have attended the event, were: Shields & Yarnell, David Frye, the 1910 Fruitgum Company, and that black ventriloquist who used to be on Carson at least once a month.

Dumb Stupid Daily Probe Reporter Loses Bet

HONOLULU, HI (DPI) - I am a big dumb stupid idiot who smells. I like to pick my nose and eat the boogers and I walk around going "Duh! Duh! Duuuuh!" I am so stupid.

Local Teen Releases 2nd Quarter Yearnings
NEW YORK, NY (DPI) - Local teen Michael Feldstein today released his Second Quarter Yearnings by taking a 15-minute bathroom break with the door locked. After watching a new episode of Baywatch, which was followed by "Party of Five" on the Lifetime channel, Feldstein felt the timing was right to release yearnings. Feldstein yearnings are up 25% over 2nd Quarter 1997 due to the addition of Michelle Drake to his 4th period Economics class. "Michelle is an important new part of my Yearnings Portfolio, and I expect many great returns." What he actually meant by "returns" was not known. Feldstein's Mom, reached for comment, only wanted to know, "Is he alright in there?"
