Rapidly Swelling Man May Contain Traces Of Peanuts

PENSACOLA, FL—Lance Kiser, the host at the Erewan Thai restaurant, informed fellow employees Monday that the bloated, choking man at table four may contain trace amounts of peanuts.

Drive-Time Commute Jam-Packed With Entertainment

CHANDLER, AZ—Phoenix-area resident Bruce Meske, 34, said he can't believe the amazing number of riveting, drive-time radio options available for his 40-minute commute home every night. "At no other time of the day is my life so jam-packed with incredible entertainment choices," Meske said Monday. "I could listen to the '60s at 6:00 or tune into the week's Top Five with Fathead on The Zone!

Meske added that his wealth of options for the morning drive floor him as well.

Replacement Socialite Cunt Sought For Simple Life Cast

NEW YORK—Due to the falling out between Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton, producers of Fox's The Simple Life are continuing their search for the perfect spoiled, no-talent socialite cunt to step in for Richie. "It shouldn't be too hard to find another vapid, muddied cum-dumpster perpetually drunk on the jizz of trust-fund himbos," producer Jonathan Murray said. "Any million-dollar Bambi with a vast inheritance and no ambition will do, though gutter-sluts with coke-fueled pasts will be given special consideration."

Women On The Front Line

Women are barred from U.S. military jobs that would place them on the front line, but some say all troops in Iraq are exposed to ground combat. What do you think?
  • “If you ask me, it’s about time America’s proud and deadly fighting women were put in the damn military.”

    Al Trevino
    Nurse
  • “Man, imagine how humiliating it would be to have a crush on a girl in your platoon, only to get your legs blown off right in front of her.”

    Gabriel Meyers
    Systems Analyst
  • “Women in the military is a complicated issue in the otherwise black-and-white world of war and combat.”

    Renee Blankenship
    Librarian
  • “I think we should take women off their pedestals, as they just make them sitting ducks in the battle zone.”

    Locksmith
  • “Women are too docile to serve in front-line combat. Their place is back at the prison, sadistically torturing detainees.”

    Elmer Whitehead
    Lawyer
  • “To their commanders, front-line soldiers are nothing more than objects, warm bodies, pieces of meat. Women should certainly be used to that.”
