Restless Leg Syndrome Telethon Xmas Eve

As the un-authorized, un-official spokesperson for Restless Leg Syndrome Telethon, I urge all of you to tune in at 12:01 am Xmas morning on your local unobtainable analog broadcast TV station, for the first Restless Leg Syndrome Telethon.
When Restless Leg Syndrome was first discovered three years ago, the airwaves were filled with TV ads to ask your doctor about medications for RLS. Then….silence. You probably haven’t seen an ad for RLS for more than 1 year. Just when RLS sufferers were beginning to come out of the shadows and were asking their doctors to prescribe these ridiculously expensive drugs, the pharmaceutical companies pulled the ads.
Now my telethon hopes to raise money so that more TV ads for these insanely overpriced medications can be broadcast once again, and new research can be done to invent new diseases to treat with poorly selling drugs. Maybe in time research can even be devoted to find drugs that can cure “erections-lasting-more-than-four-hours” … then again, maybe not.

Terrorists Using H20 From The Sky in latest Xmas plot

Satirical News Service

Frozen H20 – a chemical compound - has paralyzed much of the UK , Europe and the Eastern United States Seaboard, while simultaneously unfrozen H20 is literally raining down in vast quantities on the Western Coast of the United States.
According to Homeland Security head, Janet Napolitano, these simultaneous attacks have all the hallmarks of an Al Quaeda terrorist plot. We still don’t know yet how the terrorists were able to obtain this chemical substance, H20, but we are investigating every possibility. The fact that they were able to deliver it over large parts of Europe and the US simultaneously from the air paralyzing travel and commerce is a particularly ominous development. In response to this latest threat, the Dept of Homeland Security is going to ban all water from airplanes and airports starting next week. Drinking fountains and toilets in airports and airplanes will be permanently closed as well as all in flight beverage services.

Amid growing protests against Full Body Scans and personal pat-downs, the TSA announced today that passengers who refuse full body scans may elect to be waterboarded instead. "We understand passengers dislike of the personal pat downs, so we’ve elected to much less invasive means of screening out would be terrorists."
Those electing to be waterboarded will be allowed to board their flights in the unlikely event that they do not confess to being a terrorist planning to blow up the plane.

Tea Party Favors a Constitutional Amendment to Make "The Truth” Whatever the Majority of Congress Says It Is.

Satirical News Service
Washington DC

Giddy with their victory in the midterm elections, the Tea Party is now proposing a Constitutional Amendment that would stipulate The Truth to be whatever a majority of Congress says it is. Since they now have a majority in the House, and they hope to eventually win over the Senate, they want to be able to define The Truth.
Speaking with one leader of the Tea Party Movement, he stated, “For too long The Truth has been dictated by Marxists Liberals who rely solely on facts instead of the Will of the People. We want to change this once and for all! When South Carolina’s newly elected Senator says that Obama’s trip to India cost 200 million dollars, that should be The Truth, because the majority of the people have spoken and they say it is! Likewise, FOX news polls show that the majority of people believe that Obama is really a Muslim and that he was born in Africa. That should stand as The Truth because it is a majority! Same with Global Warming, Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq, Immigration, Taxation, and Big Government Spending on Healthcare. We demand that The Truth should be defined by the majority and not by a bunch of so-called-intellectual Liberals."

Newly Elected Tea Party Candidates Announce Their Plan To Resign After Half Their Terms

Satirical News Service
Washington DC

In a surprise announcement coming just 24 hours after the mid term elections, most of the newly elected “Tea party” Republicans announced today their intention to resign after less than half their terms. Asked why they would announce their resignations immediately after they were elected they quoted from Sarah Palin’s resignation speech from her governorship of Alaska after half her term - “It would be apathetic to just hunker down and "go with the flow". And only dead fish "go with the flow".
All of these newly elected congressmen said they plan to pursue more lucrative careers as Fox News Commentators now that they got the public exposure they were looking for.

And the Stupid Electoral Initiative Award goes to ….. OK Oklahoma!

In an election year when stupidity runs second only to fear, Oklahoma voters will have a chance to set a new high water mark for stupidity and fear. It was reported today in the LA Times that Oklahoma has on its ballot an initiative that would make a constitutional amendment to ban Islamic Sharia law. Never mind the fact that there are only 15,000 Muslims in the entire state and there has never been a single case of Sharia law being applied or even argued. But just in case, Oklahoma wants to be prepared just in case some Muslim has the audacity to turn down a McRib sandwhich.
According to one spokesperson for the group responsible for getting this initiative on the ballot. “We see this as a good start. After this amendment passes we plan to put initiatives on the ballot to outlaw other laws that we disagree with. These include Talmudic law, Darwin’s Law of Natural Selection, Newton’s Second Law of Thermodynamics, The Law of Gravity, and all re-run’s of Law and Order.”

Let’s Privatize this War

For once I am in full agreement with the Tea Party and Neoncons. We need to cut Big Government and reduce the National Dept, and not have any timetable for ending the war in Afganistan. Since they also firmly believe that all government agencies are totally inept, I suggest we privatize the biggest one of all. The US Military.
I suggest we start by issuing IPO’s for specific conflicts – like the War in Afghanistan. Free Market entrepreneurs could purchase stock in the war just as they could in say General Motors (as if anyone actually would do that right now). Instead of relying on generals with little vested interest in the wars telling us how the war is going, the average Joe could see for himself just by looking at the stock performance. Banks could also get into the fray too by offering CDO’s or those weird derivatives that hedges their bets in case the Taliban actually do win this war. That way they could still make a killing (so to speak!) if we lose.
The war could be run just like any corporation with competent CEO’s like…., well I can’t really think of any right now, but I’ll get back to you on that ……
To save costs we could lay off thousands of soldiers who are not actually shooting weapons, and we could outsource those jobs to China, the Philippines, or India just like we do all the other jobs.
We could also cut out waste and reduce the size of government by eliminating the VA just as the Tea Party Folks are currently advocating. Instead of offering Big Government Run Health Care that everyone knows is bad for us, we could offer them the same health benefits that ordinary workers get, through CIGNA or Blue Cross. Of course we’d probably have to raise their salary because with their share of the premiums alone they’d, they’d end up owing more than they get paid. Likewise these plans would have to not cover certain things - like getting shot or getting blown up by IED’s.
Companies like Blackwater Security already have shown us that Private Enterprise can do the job much better than Big Government, so let them take over this thing and use the money where it is really needed - on Tax Breaks for the Super Rich!.

President Obama Announces Man in Mine Program (satire)

With the worldwide media attention riveted on the Chilean Mine Rescue and interest and funding in the US Space program at an all time low, President Obama today announced he is refocusing NASA on programs that would generate more interest and cost less. To this effect he announced today his proposal for a Man in Mine Program.
In a speech today at the White House, he paraphrased John F. Kennedy’s famous Man on the Moon speech stating “I promise to place a man in the mine and bring him back safely by the end of this decade”.
NASA engineers and executives are already on site in Chile to learn how to keep the media’s attention focused for extended periods of time. As one NASA executive stated “We know this is a massive undertaking, but with dedication and perseverance, we plan to be the second nation to place men in the mine and bring them back safely!”

Negative Political Ads for County Coroner

This year political campaigns are all turning ugly – even the ones for of all things the County Coroner!
Here is an example of one of the negative political ads I’ve seen for this position.

My Opponent is a left handed Liberal who wants to literally drain the life blood out of the average tax payer!
He supports Death Panels!
He is up to his elbows in slime in the inner recesses of his less up-standing clients!

I on the other hand, want to pump new vitriol into the hearts of the average citizen!
I am willing to make the deep cuts necessary to see the job done right!
I want to expose the corrupt inner workings and am willing to probe into the deepest darkest places to get to the truth!
I stand for right leaning values and won’t mess around in the dirty recesses that my opponent says are just part of his job!

Vote for me for County Coroner.
Paid for by the US Chamber of Commerce and the Tea Party Express!

Pastor Vows to Barbecue Meat on Friday and Pork on 9/11!

Satirical News Service
Loseville, FL

In another Media Circus, today, self proclaimed pastor Jerry Tones announced that on Friday September 10th, he was going to barbecue a steak and on 9/11, he was going to barbecue pork ribs!
Jerry Tones who is pastor of the Church of the God-Loving-and-Liberal-Hating and-Any-Foreigner-Americans, announced that he was going to perform this public cooking demonstration to the national media in an effort to “Piss off all those Vegans and Muslims who don’t eat meat or pork”. He said is grilling the meat on Friday was in an effort to specifically piss off all the Catholics who still adhere to meatless Fridays.
Outrage and Pleas have come in from around the world for him to stop, stating that it could jeopardize American lives. Calls from the Pope, the Indian and Pakistani Prime Ministers, PETA, the AMA, Numerous Muslim Imams, and Whole Foods Executives have failed to persuade him against pursing this divisive and dangerous course.
Pastor Tones, who received his ordination via the Internet, and whose congregation consists of his two toddler nephews, has stood steadfast in his determination to perform this act stating “God has instructed me to do this to show he hates foreigners and liberals and especially Vegetarians!”
After two days of very tense negotiations and a personal plea from Sarah Palin who offered to send him a Moose to grill instead, he finally relented. So on Saturday September 11th, Pastor Tones will be cooking Moose burgers instead of pork and beef, slowly seared over a bed of coals made up of Korans and Torahs.

Sarah Palin Revealed to be A Russian Spy

Secret FBI photos of Sarah Palin sending secret messages to Russia

Wasilla, Alaska
FBI today arrested Sarah Palin and her Husband Todd as part of a large espionage ring of Russian sleeper agents that had been planted in the United States presumably for years under the cover of ordinary citizens, but were secretly funneling information to Russia. According to the FBI there was darn good reason that she could see Russia from her porch. Secret photos now reveal that she used semaphore flags to send secret information to Russia. This certainly explains a lot about her involvement in the Tea Part movement. To think we came all too close to having a Russian spy as VP.

BP Officials Announce Containment Of Money Outflow Due To Leaking Oil Well

Satirical News service
New Orleans, LA

Today officials at BP announced that they are finally making progress on containing the outflow of money in the form of payouts and compensations caused by the leaking oil well in the Gulf.

“We’re using a form of containment dome that gradually reduces the flow of money coming out of the escrow fund and BP’s profits. While some money inevitably will flow out in the form of compensation for lost income to fisherman, resort owners, and wildlife rescuers, we’ve manage to cut this flow to nearly a third.”

Officials at BP went on to state that final containment of the flow of money out of the company isn’t expected to happen until November when a relief hose can be placed into upcoming congressional campaign coffers. Once this happens, the plan is to pump a large amount of heavy mud in the congressional elections to eventually seal any chances that BP will actually have to pay for the full extent of the damages caused by the leaking oil well.

Obama Works on His Angry Response to the Gulf Oil Spill (satire)

Aide: Mr. President, the polls are really hammering us for not showing enough anger over this Gulf Oil Spill thing. Even Sarah Palin, as muddled as she is, at least comes off showing righteous indignation . We’ve assembled some film and TV clips for you to watch to and maybe use them to show the public how angry you are.
Okay here’s the first clip. It’s of Ralph Cramdon from the Honeymooners

Cramdon: (eyes flaring): "I tell ya Alice one of these days – To the Moon!”

Aide: You could say “I tell ya Tony – one of these days – To the Moon!”

Obama: Wouldn’t the public think I’m going to send Tony Hayward on a Space mission?

Aide: I see your point Mr. President. Lets try this one from the Incredible Hulk

Hulk: "You won’t like me when I’m angry! " (gets huge and green and starts tearing up the lab).

Aide: We think the environmentalist might go for the green look, and we could get the makeup guys to sort of bulk you up. Try the dialog

Obama: (in moderate level voice): You, uh, probably won’t, uh, like me, uh, when I get upset.

Aide: OK, how about this one from Taxi
You talking to me Hayward, you must be talking to me cause I don’t see nobody else here!" (gets out Magnum 45’s and starts blasting).

Obama: I’m not sure I could do the Mohawk hair thing, and the anti-gun folk’s wouldn’t like the blasting with the Magnum’s thing.

Aide: Okay, here’s one we adapted from The Soprano’s.
"Get in the car Tony, it’s time youse and me takes a little ride. Our boys are pretty upset about what youse done to the Gulf, so we wants youse to go down there and fix it youse-self. Would you mind putting your feet into this tub of cement."

Obama: Youse and Me??

Abbott and Costello Visit Arlington National Cemetery

Costello: OK Abbott, there are three grave sites here – Hu is buried in the first grave, NoWan is buried in the second, and Idunno is buried in the third.

Abbott: Then Who is buried in the second?

Costello: No Hu is buried in the first

Abbott: So who is buried in the third?

Castello: Idunno

Satirical News Service
New Orleans, LA

If tomorrow's attempt of a "Top Shot" to stop the undersea oil leak fails, scientists at British Petroleum are considering trying a "Bottom Shot". A "Bottom Shot" consists of first lowering a toilet over the well head. Once secured, a deep sea diver descends and basically sits on it and takes a big dump, which hopefully will stop the leak. As one un-named BP official stated, "finding people who are full of crap around here is no problem".

BP Now Says their Oil Spill is Payback for Taxes on Oil (ala Boston tea Party)

Satirical News Service
New Orleans

In a strange news conference yesterday, British Petroleum announced today that the Oil Spill, that remains 90% uncontorlled, is just their way of protesting higher taxes on oil much as the Boston tea Party was the Colonialists' way of protesting taxation on Tea.
Apparently they are trying to capitalize on the growing popularity of the Tea Party Movement in a bid to win sympathy and prevent the federal government from enacting more stringent regulations.
At the conference BP announced that they will continue dumping oil in protest until the US government repeals all taxes on it.
Good luck with that one!

New Recipes for Gulf Seafood BP style

New Recipes for Gulf Seafood

As they say, “If life gives you lemons, make Lemonade!” Chefs in Louisiana, now faced with their sources of fresh seafood becoming contaminated with crude oil from the massive BP platform spill, are coming up with new variations on seafood recipes.

Oysters Hayward (CEO of BP)

This is a variation on Oysters Rockefeller. Take 6 oysters (shucked). Place them on a small raised dish sitting in a larger dish filled with sea or salt. Fill the smaller dish with light crude oil and ignite to cook the oysters. The burning crude will mask the oily taste of the oysters and impart their own unique flavor. The cooked oysters can them be dipped in the oil tainted salt water to give them their unique BP flavor.

Blackened Red Fish (BP style)

Take 1 Red fish or Beam. Place in dish filled with oil tainted sea water and ignite. Serve when thoroughly blackened.

Shrimp BP style

Cook and shuck gulf shrimp recently caught in tainted waters off Louisiana. Let cook and peel. Serve with a dipping sauce of light sweet crude oil.

Bon Appetite!

Following on the heels of the Arizona State Legislature’s new Immigration “Stop and Prove Citizenship” law, the IRS is also implementing a new policy that would require all law enforcement officials to stop and question citizens in the State of Arizona to prove that they have filed and are not delinquent on their income taxes. The provisions of this law make it mandatory for all persons to carry proof of filing and payment of all federal and state income taxes or be subject to arrest.
“We feel it is about time that the government take this enforcement seriously. After all, the law is the law, and it is a federal crime to be delinquent in paying your taxes. Just look at the criminals who avoid paying taxes – drug dealers, pimps, gun dealers – not to mention those high-and-mighty Wall Street types! Nope, it’s time to start enforcing the laws of this country! If you can’t prove you paid, you’re going to get arrested! We don’t intend to profile anyone, but confidentially, if you are white and drive a Mercedes, you had better carry proof of payment to the IRS!”

Future Censuses to Use Color swatches to Classify Race

Satiricial News Service
Washington DC

Amid the uproar over which race box to check on the current Census Form, US government officials annouced today that they will use a different method to classify people's race. According to one un-named official, "We've been getting a lot of heat over which race box to check, You have people wanting to classify themselves as "Tanned Americans", "Tea-Party Americans", and then of course there are people like the late Michael Jackson who want to be classfied as "Transitional". To address this controversy, the Census Forms will no longer use words. Instead citizens are asked to match thier skin color as closely as possible to the swatches provided in the form. Hence forth, people in the US will no longer be classified by words, but rather by their swatch number. It is hoped by going to this method, the Census Bureau can be more accomidating to all American's.

New Discovery of Extinct Branch of Prehistoric Humans

Satiricial News Service

Scientists this week have made the discovery of an early branch of human evolution that mysteriously went extinct. From fossils they hypothesized that they had very small brains and lived exclusively on an herb that resembles modern day "tea". Scientists believe this may have made them very angry and irrational. They are classifying this new species as Homo-Insurrectus.

Along with the discovery they discovered cave drawings from this extinct human race. Anthropologists have suggested that based on the drawings, they worshiped the symbol of a coiled snake. The figure in the middle right drawing is hypothesized to represent a witch doctor or chief who brings healthcare to the tribe. The circle with the slash indicates that they did not like this chief or healthcare. The lower most drawing shows how they lured a woolly mammoth to jump off a cliff by first jumping off it themselves. The last drawing suggests why they probably went extinct.

Following recent hospitalization for heart problems, former VP Cheney received mandatory counseling for end of life issues where it was determined that his condition was tragically hopeless. Following this meeting, a heavily sedated Cheney was wheeled out of the hospital in a gurney to a nearby airport where a private jet was awaiting his arrival. Hospital public relations officials stated he was being taken to an undisclosed hospice location where he will be allowed to meet his inevitable death out of the eyes of the prying public. Officials assured us they are do everything in their power to ease his pain with very high doses of narcotics that would ordinarily be considered harmful or even fatal if the prognosis were not so grim to begin with.

After a minor fall on ice, one un-named US Olympic athlete suffered a serious laceration to his hand. The terrified athlete, fully cognizant of the horrors of socialized medicine in Canada from the reports he’d heard from FOX News, was dragged kicking and screaming to the city’s state of the art hospital. There he endured an excruciating 10 minute wait to undergo suturing the laceration by highly trained emergency room doctors. He could only pray that the death panels of government bureaucrats that roamed the ER, would miss him. Later he would thank his luck that he lived in the USA where his private health insurance could deny his claim without the intervention of BIG GOVERNMENT for seeking medical treatment at a facility not in his provider network and without prior approval!

Fox News’s Glenn Beck Heroic Rescue Caught On Camera (satire)

Satirical News
Washington DC

Recently CNN aired footage of Anderson Cooper rescuing a young boy injured during looting in earthquake ravaged Haiti. Not to be upstaged by this coverage, FOX News today aired a segment showing Glenn Beck stepping in to heroically rescue an elderly woman carrying a sign saying “NO US AIDE TO HAITI DEVIL WORSHIPERS”, who was being verbally abused by a crowd of Liberals.
In a statement released by FOX News, Glenn Beck stated “Sometimes you have to throw off the cool detached objectivity of just covering the news and respond directly to the events as they enfold, and protect the things and people that matter most to you.”
Although some people have suggested that this whole event was staged to boost his ratings, FOX News denied such accusations.

Healthcare? Just Say NO!

Following the recent debacle over passing healthcare reform, insiders from within the Obama administration are considering a new tack that might finally achieve bi-partisan support,. It is hoped that this might satisfy Republicans and the “teabaggers” who still think that all healthcare is just a conspiracy to keep laetrile off the US market and promote government run “death panels”. Here is an excerpt from a new TV ad campaign.

Sad looking boy: “It all started with that first visit to the doctors office.” “Just take a few of theseVitamins", he said, "they’ll be good for you.”

Sad looking teenage girl: “Before long it was birth control pills, PAP smears, and annual mammograms.”

Sad looking middle aged man: “Then it was colonoscopies, prostate exams, blood pressure medicines, cholesterol lowering medicines, anti-depressants, PAIN pills!”

Sad looking older man: “Before I knew it I was going to the doctor every other week for this or that. Then came the tests, and specialists, and dangerous exposure to x-rays and magnetic fields. Joint Replacements, Heart Valve Replacements! I was hooked!”

Sad looking frail old woman with IV’s and Oxygen in a wheel chair: “Don’t let this happen to you! When it comes to healthcare, don’t even start! Just say NO to healthcare!”

TSA To Ban All Religion Aboard Us Flights

Satirical News service
Philadelphia, PA

Following a recent episode where a Kentucky bound airliner was forced to divert and land because an Orthodox Jewish passenger donned a teffillin – a small leather prayer box that is wound to the body with leather straps – and started praying in Hebrew, the TSA announced today that it would ban all religion on US flights.
From now on the TSA will no longer allow any religious objects or prayers aboard any airplane. Passengers wearing any religious objects such as crucifixes or star-of-davids, will be required to place them in a small plastic bag prior to going through security and boarding a plane. Some exemptions will be allowed for certified clergy, but they must obtain and show a certificate from their diocese indicating that they are an ordained minister. Passengers who feel the need to pray will only be permitted to pray silently and unobtrusively 10 minutes before take off, and after the aircraft has touched down on the runway. Under no circumstances will any religious objects be permitted to be used in prayers, nor may passengers pray out loud. Quoting one official from the TSA, “We are doing this in the interest of protecting passengers from potential terrorists.”

Proposal to Install Water Boarding Devices at Major Airports

Satirical News Service
Washington DC

Echoing the harsh criticism of President Obama’s lax sense of National Security by certain well known talk show hosts, Vice Presidents and former VP candidates, some members of Congress are proposing installing Water Boarding devices in all major airports to prevent terrorist attacks such as the one that occurred on Xmas.
As one Congressman, who did not want to be named stated, “When we were using water boarding regularly we did not have a single terrorist attack on airplanes.” “It’s time we stopped pussy-footing around with half measures like shoes checks and removing liquids from carry on luggage, and do some REAL passenger screening.”
When asked whether racial or ethnic profiling might be used to select which passengers would be singled out for such treatment, he stated “Absolutely NOT! There is just as much likelihood that the little old granny with her train-case carry-on would be selected as the Middle Eastern looking gentleman wearing a skull cap with a glazed look and muttering prayers in Arabic would be chosen.” “It’s also a whole lot cheaper than those high tech body scanning machines they’re talking about!”
Following 20 or so minutes of water boarding, it would then be determined if the passenger could continue on to board the flight, or instead requested to board a different flight to an undisclosed destination.
The Congressional Committee on Homeland Security is expected to take up this measure in early 2010.

Devices like the one shown here would be used to
pre-screen selected passangers prior to boarding their flights
