Top Cutlines

1. The Mad Hatter joins fellow celebrity conspiracy theorists James Brolin and Charlie Sheen in calling for American troops to return from Iraq to help combat Global Warming. “This war is like throwing money down a rabbit hole” He said. “We must find a way to stop the glaciers from shrinking”. His speech was interrupted briefly when a heckler dressed as a piece of cake yelled “Eat Me!” — Pete.

2. In this file photo, KXLY executives attempt to force Dick Haugen to leave on his own, requiring him to wear a ridiculous hat and blazer while reading the news — John Austin.

3. (tie) War protesters from the 1960s have traded in their jean, tie-dye and love beads for an unholy ensemble of polyester blazers and an ugly assortment of hats — Whippersnapper; and: “This just in from President Bush: ‘Stay the course! We’ll only lose if we quit! Mission accomplished!’” — A Token D.
