    SADDAM COMMITS SUICIDE

    BAGHDAD: In a move that caught the entire world by surprise, Iraqi despot Saddam Hussein committed
    suicide today.

    In a note delivered to Arab satellite TV channel Al Jazeera, Hussein admitted he was a worthless
    pile of camel dung, admitted killing tens of thousands of his countrymen and women, and prayed that
    Allah would forgive him for his sins.

    US troops on the outskirts of Baghdad initially considered the suicide report as another trick,
    but the massive celebration that broke out in the Iraq capital city convinced coalition forces the
    news was true.

    Notwithstanding the voluntary demise of Saddam, coalition forces continued to bomb Baghdad because
    "we have a lot of ordinance that would otherwise go to waste," according to a military spokesperson.

    BIN LADEN SURRENDERS TO NEW YORK POLICE

    NEW YORK: To the shock and amazement of US authorities, Osama bin Laden walked into the 27th
    Precinct of the New York City Police Department, and surrendered.

    Bin Laden, who is accused of killing nearly 3,000 New Yorkers in the attack on the World Trade
    Center, just walked in the door and turned himself in.

    "We got this ratty looking guy with a beard saying he's bin Laden and wants to pay for his crimes,"
    said Captain Joe Rizzoli, NYPD public information officer, "and we think maybe this is just a
    deranged street person. Like we've already maybe 30 guys claim they were bin Laden."

    After throwing the claimed bin Laden in the holding tank, NYPD officials called the FBI to check out
    the claim.

    "The feds, they've been a royal pain in the butt, so we call them to check the guy out so they will
    waste their time," said Rizzoli. "And to everyone's surprise, the guy's the real thing."

    Bin Laden reportedly admitted to having experienced a visitation from the spirit of the Prophet
    Mohammed who told bin Laden he had incorrectly interpreted to Koran and would spend eternity in
    a hell run by American lesbians if he did not admit he was wrong and accept the just punishment
    he is due.

    US Attorney General John Ashcroft immediately took credit for the apprehension of bin Laden and
    request another $42 billion dollars to protect Americans from terrorists who sell bongs over
    the internet.

    BUSH REPENTS, CONVERTS TO DEMOCRAT

    WASHINGTON: George W. Bush woke up this morning realizing his entire life to date had been an
    enormous mistake, and converted to the Democratic Party.

    "Viewing the future of America as being tied to the greedy capitalistic swine that I grew up with in
    Texas just didn't feel right any more," Bush said, "so I'm gonna be a died in the wool Texas
    populist."

    Bush immediately asked Dick Cheney to resign as Vice President and appointed Jim Hightower to
    replace him as Veep.

    CONGRESS ABOLISHES PERSONAL FEDERAL INCOME TAX

    WASHINGTON: In an unprecedented show of bipartisanship, both the US House and senate today abolished
    the federal income tax for individuals.

    "We realized we could run the federal government by eliminating every loophole we created in the tax
    code for corporations," said Senator John McCain, R-Arizona.

    The news that the personal income tax would be abolished effective April 15th triggered a 500 point
    decline in the Dow Jones average, and a massive rush to shopping malls throughout America.

    health care," said Arnold Flenk, CEO of HealthRip.

    US AUTOMAKERS INTRODUCE NEW FUEL CELL CAR THAT WILL SELL FOR $3,000

    DETROIT: Facing the prospect of global warming and continued reliance on politically incorrect oil
    supplies, the 3 major US automakers unveiled a new car that runs on a hydrogen fuel cell and will
    retail for $3,000.

    "We figure the new car will replace every car on the road today very quickly," said Axel Ford,
    President of Ford Motor Company. "And as a result we'll make lots of money, the air will be cleaner,
    and everyone will be able to drive a safe car.

    Ralph Nader immediately criticized the automakers for the announcement. "I knew they could do this
    all along," Nader said. A lawsuit will be filed shortly.
