    LOS ANGELES, CA – The internet has been abuzz since this Sunday’s Golden Globes ceremony, where Megan Fox jokingly remarked that she looked like a man.

However, today she has cleared the air and officially reported: she’s really a man. Megan Fox was born Mitchell Reed Fox in Rockwood, Tennessee. From an early age, Mitchell showed an interest in both performing and women’s...

    "Hi ya, young fella."Babe Ruth greeted Arthur Giddon as he did most 13-year-olds, even those in uniform. Giddon chatted with the Babe for a moment but tore himself away because he had a job to do. It was 1922, and as the Boston Braves bat boy, Giddon had to break out the bats, polish some spikes and otherwise outfit his players for that afternoon's game at Braves Field. Eighty-seven years later, on Saturday, Giddon will reprise his role for his now-beloved Red Sox -- as a special 100th birthday present, he will serve as the team's honorary bat boy prior...

    Bat Boy reportedly flew into a rage when he heard the news on his cave’s short-wave radio. It seems he has now made it his personal mission to bring Madoff to justice. Madoff was so shaken by Bat Boy’s threats that he has approached the NYPD for protection. When a lieutenant showed him no pity, Madoff screamed, “Have you seen that freaky kid? Have you seen his teeth?! You have to help me!”

    WASHINGTON, DC - In a shocking reversal, the Alien has switched his endorsement from Barack Obama to John McCain.

Both political camps are buzzing about the implications, as the Alien has correctly predicted the winning president in every election for the past 28 years. Ongoing investigation points to Cindy McCain as being the cause for this historic shift in allegiances.

    I was listening to this syndicated show tonight, and George has Glynnis McCants, a lady specializing in numerology. Well she was examining the four people running for the White House, breaking down their lifes, based on their birthdays. George asked for a prediction of her and she said that with it being a very competitive year, she cant tell a decisive victor, but she did state that if the Dems keep attacking Sarah Palin, this is John McCain's year and election. However, if they focus more on the issues and not on Palin, they have a chance to win. George...

Hampton is now a member of the Palmer City Council. He was married at the time of the reported flirtation. Here's the response from...

    The Weekly World News is dead, and in the words of its ripsnorting right-wing columnist Ed Anger, the tabloid's dwindling legion of fans should be ''pig-biting mad'' about it. Based for most of its 28 years in Palm Beach County, the Weekly World News delivered the guiltiest of pleasures with wheelbarrows of wit, screaming headlines and a black-and-white design sensibility straight out of 1952. Depending on your perspective, the WWN gloriously chronicled or shamelessly fabricated an alternate reality populated by amorous space aliens, babies born with angel wings and gardeners who marry their vegetables.

    On Tuesday, July 17, President Bush issued an executive order that could be interpreted to outlaw anti-war protest. This new executive order empowering the federal government to freeze the assets of people who threaten Iraq's stability and its government is so broad it could be applied to any domestic opponent of the Iraq war who has assets in the U.S., charges a former Reagan administration official. White House press secretary Tony Snow explained the order targets terrorist and insurgent groups not covered by existing authorities who come across the border from countries such as Iran and Syria.

No reason was given at press time, although reliable sources do tell us that management turned down at least one offer to buy the publication.
