Mt. Redoubt erupts 5 times. Viagra suspected.

redoubtMt. Redoubt continues to show off its stuff to some of the younger volcanoes in Alaskan, now having undergone a handful of “eruption events” since this past Sunday.

“It may just be Mother Nature playing tricks on us,” Said Forest Service spokesman Kent Landry, “But I’m guessing that some kids climbed up there and poured a potload of Viagra into the caldera.”

According to experts, Redoubt will most likely burn itself out in a few days, collapse and ultimately, go back to drinking beer and surfing for porn.

NASA Urine recycler doesn’t work. Is sent to AIG execs.

urineNASA has discovered that its latest urine recycler, which is supposed to allow orbiting astronauts to drink their own pee, is a “total and complete failure.”

“For whatever reason, the thing just doesn’t work.” Said spokesperson Mary Ann Haggerty. “You can imagine the nominal outcome. It was very unpleasant for the astronaut who drew the short straw and was forced to “sample” the first bit that was, apparently, not recycled at all.”

The good news is that NASA has agreed to a request by the Obama administration that several of the units be delivered to select executives at AIG and installed in their washrooms.

“I just hate the lack of sensation,” The Pontiff, winked. “And I’m trying to save my flock from that same lack of feeling.”

When asked about the AIDS epidemic in Africa, Benedict said, “We’ve been on the forefront of helping these poor people. In fact, I just said a prayer for them about ten minutes ago! What else do they expect?”

US will sell Guam to raise cash.

guamReports surfaced today which seem to indicate that the U. S. government is considering “unloading some assets” as a way to help bolster the nation’s bottom line.

“Guam is a natural.” Said an unnamed source inside the administration. “It’s way the hell over there in the Pacific Ocean, it’s tough to find or get to and it has a sort of gross name. However, we think we could get a cool billion for it, and that might even offset the AIG bonuses.”
