The Florida Supreme Court
barred the state from declaring George W. Bush the winner in the
Presidential election. "As we say around the office, the worm
turns," said Mark Fabiani, spokesman for Al Gore. Mr. Fabiani
declined to say which worm was turning, but pointed out that at a recent
press conference Dick Cheney looked dizzy.
GOD BLESS AMERICA
Untrue News congratulates the
Democratic Party and the Republican Party and their presidential
candidates for their patience and their statesmanship as the final
election results are tallied. And further bravos go to Florida's
Secretary of State Katherine Harris for her brave, apolitical stance,
and her carefully considered, wise, objective legal decisions which put
her above the partisan fray. Is this a great country, or what?
LEST WE FORGET...
There was also an election in
Canada. To the victor: Mangez moi, monsieur, mangez moi!

OUR FIRST LAWSUIT THREAT!
November 18, 2000
Many thanks to the good folks at Cybertracker for sending us a cheesy
email form letter threatening legal action. Ignoring our motto "If
we say it's untrue, there's no way you can sue" these clowns plunge
right in and whine about an item which appeared on page two of Untrue News
- January 8, 2000. The letter we received was dated November 15, 2000. The
cyber-trackers strike like lightning.
L i g h t n i n g.
The item they complained about
in our Jan 8 issue was the phrase " Jennifer Love Hewitt nude --
maybe". The maybe is important, as our issue did not include any
photos of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE, nor did we ever intend
to publish any photos of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE. We don't want
to publish photos of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE. We would not
publish photos of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE even if you paid us,
so there. We have the utmost respect and admiration for JENNIFER LOVE
HEWITT NUDE or fully clothed.
These ace sleuths evidently
used a search engine (a rather slow one, it seems) to seek out any item
on the web which contained the phrase JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE,
and sent out their little threat. Well, Mr. or Ms. Lin Milano and your
cybertrack buddies, be aware that we have absolutely zero interest in
seeing photos of JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE, and we will endeavor
to refrain from using the phrase JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE
whether we have any photos or not. Not only that, but a careful
reading of our Jan 8 publication clearly shows we were talking about JENNIFER
LOVE HEWETT NUDE, not JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT NUDE. Okay? Rest in peace.
In a recent issue we thanked
the editors of the Encyclopedia of American Journalism for declaring
McGuffin's Untrue News winner of their "most vicious writing"
category. Upon picking up our award, however, we discovered it was for
"most viscous writing". We apologize for getting it wrong, but
thank the editors anyway.

Speaking of the luminous
Jennifer Love Hewitt, Untrue News sends congratulations to the producers
of her movie The Suburbans, which was released one year ago and has so
far grossed over $95,000. That's a lot of shekels, guys.
