Activists in the Kenya are urging women to withhold sex for a week to protest the growing divide in the nation’s coalition government, and are even willing to pay prostitutes to withhold sex as well.  So they’d have a bunch of whores getting paid not to work—or as we call it here, “Congress.”



President Obama jumbled a joke at a White House Cinco de Mayo celebration held on May 4, when he referred to it at “Cinco de Cuatro,” which translates to five of four.  When he heard the news, President Bush said, “100 days on the job, and the guy already thinks he can speak French.” 


Most businesses in Mexico reopened Wednesday after being closed for five days because of swine flu, but they now face a complex set of new health restrictions that includes a mandatory two empty seats between people at movie theaters—thus making “The Ghost of Girlfriends Past” a surprising key to recovery.


Jennifer Aniston said recently that she would participate in a “Friends” movie, but only if they make it before they all get “old.”  Which I think is actually Jennifer Aniston’s way of saying she won’t participate in a “Friends” movie.

The latest message from Somalia’s Al-Qaeda-backed Al-Shabaab wing is an 18-minute hip-hop video that features a guy rapping.  Al-Qaeda says it hopes the video strikes fear into the hearts of the infidels, and gets nominated for a VMA.        


One of Britain’s leading forensic scientists has created a clay sculpture of the earliest known European face.  Apparently, he was able to make a cast for the sculpture when Keith Richards fell asleep.

A judge has denied former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich the travel visa that would allow him to appear on the NBC reality show, “I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Outta Here.”  The good news: he still stands an excellent chance of appearing on another reality show—“Lockup.”
