Liver Flees George Jones' Body

NASHVILLE, TN—After more than 40 years of absorbing vast quantities of hard alcohol, George Jones' liver finally fled the famed country singer's body Monday. "I can't take it anymore," the liver said. "A liver can only process so many toxins before it says to hell with it." Jones' liver absorbed its final drink early Monday morning, a bourbon and branch water that Jones had with some eggs for breakfast. Until it can find a place of its own, Jones' liver plans to share an apartment with Merle Haggard's liver and Hank Williams Jr.'s lungs.

Year Abroad Changes Student's Worldview For One Year

SKOKIE, IL—After a tremendously broadening year of travel through Northern Africa, area student Naomi Pilchner returned home to the U.S. yesterday, returning to her pre-year abroad worldview as well. "I'll never forget the things I saw there. There were mountains and grasslands and the most exotic animals imaginable. But there was also terrible drought and starvation—people were literally dying in the streets," Pilchner told friend Jennifer Baskin upon arriving home. "Do you want to go look for shoes at Woodfield, Jen? I saw this awesome pair of green sandals on sale."

Clinton Gets Box To Put Government's Stuff In

WASHINGTON, DC—Unable to keep track of an ever-mounting pile of federal items, President Clinton got a big box to put all the government's stuff in yesterday. "It was getting really messy," Clinton said. "So I decided it was time to get it all off the floor." According to Clinton, the box, made of sturdy, high-quality corrugated cardboard, will be used to hold many of the government's estimated 5.1 trillion belongings, which include 51 aircraft carriers, 296,000 staple removers and the tax records of every American citizen. "That's a lot of stuff," Clinton said. "I just hope it all fits."

Cry Of More, More, More Heard In Midnight Hour

LONDON—A cry of more, more, more was heard in the midnight hour Sunday, prompting police to launch a full-scale investigation. "While we don't have any leads yet, the yell clearly sounded like it came from an outsider, possibly even a rebel," said London police commissioner James Blaney. "Before I investigate further, though, I urge you to let me sink another drink, as it will give me time to think." Blaney added that if the current investigation—during which police have looked all over the world—fails to yield any real clues soon, tomorrow might be a nice day to start again. "Whoever this rebel is," Blaney said, "he clearly has got no human grace."

Area Stoners Mistakenly Hold Massive Kemp Rally

BOULDER, CO—A diverse group of marijuana advocates, or "stoners" as they are popularly known, mistakenly held a massive rally in support of Republican party vice-presidential nominee Jack Kemp yesterday, calling upon citizens and the legislature in their demands for the candidate's immediate legalization.

Nearly 300,000 jammed Boulder's downtown area in support of the decriminalization of vice-presidential candidate Jack Kemp, calling him "America's unsung miracle crop."

Touting Kemp as "America's unsung miracle crop," the group announced that the one-time NFL quarterback and Secretary of Housing and Urban Development could revolutionize American agriculture, creating an amazing new source of cheap and renewable raw material for everything from medical supplies to textile and paper fiber to dietary protein.

"Everybody thinks Kemp is un-American, but George Washington himself grew Kemp," rally organizer Heather "Rain" Sanders said. "And he was, like, the father of our country." According to Sanders, Kemp was also grown by Thomas Jefferson, whom she claimed today would be imprisoned for planting, raising and harvesting the longtime Congressional conservative.

In addition to carrying banners and shouting slogans of protest, the tie-dyed, long-haired demonstrators publicly flaunted their pro-Kemp stance by openly smoking "joints," a slang term for cigarettes rolled with marijuana, a substance which, according to ralliers, is derived from a seedless, female variety of the vice-presidential nominee.

Rally attendee Mike Cudahy concurred with the many pro-Kemp claims, holding up a wool hat emblazoned with a design reading, "Cypress Hill: Insane In The Membrane," and telling reporters, "This hat is 100 percent Kemp!"

"Jack Kemp remains the nation's best source of cheap, non-polluting paper and cloth," rallygoer Frank "Thatches" Moynihan said. "In the early 20th century, he was also used to make high-quality rope until his unethical criminalization in 1932, which was railroaded through Congress via a yellow journalism smear campaign by William Randolph Hearst."

Added Moynihan: "Man, am I baked."

Despite running smoothly overall, the Kemp rally was briefly interrupted by Republican campaign advocates who showed up in support of their candidate. In addition to angering the crowd by refusing to wear marijuana leaf buttons handed out by rally organizers, the Republicans frightened many in attendance with their conservative, monochromatic mode of dress.

Marijuana advocates are describing yesterday's Kemp rally as "the kind."

"I'm standin' there yellin', 'Kemp! Kemp!' and this suit-wearin tie guy is standin' right next to me. I'm like, 'What the hell?'" said protester Jamie "Starbaby" Dugan, of nearby Ft. Collins. "I don't know who those guys were, but they sure didn't look like Kemp smokers to me. Maybe they were narcs."

The rally was also briefly interrupted by local police officials, who attempted to explain to ralliers their fundamental hemp/Kemp confusion. Despite their efforts, the officials were quickly drowned out by protesters who chanted, "We won't listen to your lies! Kemp will make this nation high!" over and over until collapsing in coughing spasms. They continued to chant and make speeches until reconvening several hours later to enjoy unlimited salad bar visits at a nearby Wendy's.

While the vice-presidential candidate himself did not attend the demonstration, Kemp's office issued a formal response:

"This demonstration and others like it prove that America wants Kemp. Only the team of Kemp and Dole can make the United States great again!"

Despite expressing pleasure with the rally, the statement did, however, strongly deny that Kemp is a plant.

"We can assure you and your readers that the Congressman is decidedly mammalian in taxonomy," it read. "Mr. Kemp is now and has always been staunchly non-fibrous."
