My Wife Doesn't Think I'm Funny Anymore by Mike Schatz
I've suspected it for a while, but now I am sure of it. My wife doesn't think I'm funny anymore. We were eating dinner last night and I made a little joke about how I knew the rolls were old because I bought them on the same day that we'd last had sex.

Rock Band Anthrax Changes Name To Chicken Pox

In light of the recent threats of biological terrorist attacks, thrash rock band Anthrax is changing its name. "We never thought the day would come that our name would actually mean what it really means," says lead singer Scott Ian. "When we named our band after a deadly disease, we didn't think people would actually ever get the disease. Don't get me wrong, we're into death, but the kind of death that only exists on blacklight posters and comic books. As Chicken Pox, we'll still be the same tough, metal band. But ours is now a story of survival, not death. Every member of the band has had chicken pox and lived to tell about it. See this scar on my forehead? I used to tell people my stepfather burned me with a cigarette. It's really a giant chicken pox scar."

Bush Vows To Bomb Afghanistan Back To Whatever Was Before The Stone Age

WASHINGTON, D.C. - President George W. Bush has made one of his boldest threats yet to Afghanistan's Taliban regime. As bombs continue to fall on the battered nation, the President made clear that he planned to bomb the harborers of terrorism back to "whatever was before the stone age."
Making the point that most of Afghanistan already exists in a stone-age-like standard of living, Bush promised to take them yet one step further back on the evolutionary time line. "You're gonna wish you had a rock to dig for grubs in the desert, or one of those Fred Flintstone tunics to wear, but you won't even have that. It's just going to be like some kind of primordial soup or something."
