WHERE'S THE TITANIC?

Scientists using the newest and most accurate measurement techniques found Alaska's glaciers melting at more than twice the rate previously thought. Warming temperatures may be responsible for rising sea levels and dramatic climatic changes throughout the world. Democrats blame the global warming on the Republicans' refusal to pass environmental protection laws, and Republicans blame the global warming on Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky.

 

LOOK LOOK, ANOTHER CROOK

Army Secretary Thomas White said Thursday he is "appalled and angered'' by the scandals that drove the Enron Corp. into bankruptcy, but denied any role in or knowledge of wrongdoing while he was an Enron executive. "Really, I'm appalled and angered" the Secretary told reporters, "appalled and angered. That's a-p-p-a-l-l-e-d."

In testy exchanges with skeptical senators, White repeatedly said he had played no part in manipulating California energy prices and knew nothing of other improprieties while he helped run Enron. "In other words, gentlemen" White told the senators, "I was one of the most stupid, ill-informed and naive executives on the face of the earth."

Senator Barbara Boxer (D-Calif) asked for the Secretary's resignation, saying she found his answers argumentative and evasive. White countered by telling Senator Boxer she looked fat.

Asked if he had made or lost money selling Enron stock, Secretary White said "I made seventy million dollars, but money isn't important to me, integrity is."

A SPECIAL MCGUFFIN'S THE UNTRUE NEWS FEATURE SECTION:
BUSINESS CRIME NEWS.

VOTING WITH THEIR WALLETS

Congress passed legislation last week making it illegal for businesses to continue using the same deceptive accounting practices that caused the collapse of Enron and other companies, and financial ruin for many thousands of workers. Although the new law will be tough, a Republican spokesperson told Untrue News, "We would also like to assure our largest contributors that the rules contain enough loopholes to guarantee the very fattest cats can keep lapping up the cream."

Asked if CEO's who cheated people out of their life savings should go to jail, house speaker Dennis Hastert (R-Illinois) said "No, I'll tell you who should go to jail. Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky."

MCGUFFIN'S THE UNTRUE NEWS EDITORIAL:
How Should We Punish These CEO Thieves?
by McGuffin's The Untrue News editor Mark McGuffin

Five executives of the disgraced Adelphia Cable Co. were arrested and charged with looting the company for their own personal benefit. One hopes we'll see KennyBoy Lay, Bernie Ebbers and the rest of their criminal ilk take the same perp-walk in the near future. But this is hardly enough.

While seeing executives in handcuffs may be gratifying to some, we feel that stricter measures are needed. Harsh punishment would serve as a deterrent to future miscreants, and would fulfill society's need for revenge against these thieving cocksuckers.

I propose that Congress enact the following bill providing for punishment of business fraud and other criminal acts of CEOs as follows: For each $1000 of investment lost, each stockholder will be allowed to strip one square centimeter of skin from one of the defendants. When skin runs out, remaining victims can throw salt or lit matches on a defendant of their choice. Defendants will be forced to live in each other's feces and will be taunted throughout their sentences by the children of their victims. This should be kept up on a daily basis for 25 years. Any longer, we believe, would constitute cruel and unusual punishment. --M.M.
