      Wouldn't you think millions in development at Apple might have resulted in a name that doesn't sound like a feminine hygiene product. The iPad only stores 64GB of data. For days that you need more power will Apple come up with the "iMaxipad"? And where is the large screen version for seniors, "iDepends? " And will a version targeted to men be known as "iFlomax"? (Janice Hough)

      The man who shot Pope Paul II in 1981 has been released from prison, telling reporters that he's a messenger from God and that Armageddon will occur this year. His release was delayed until authorities were sure he wasn't mentally deranged. (Bob Mills)

      President Obama tells ABC News' Diane Sawyer that he'd rather be a "really good one term president" than a "mediocre two term president." And Republicans immediately offered their help to make Obama's wish come true. (Pedro Bartes)

      Heidi Montag told People Magazine she had 10 plastic surgery procedures in one day, including having her breast size increased to DDD. I'm not saying she's more or less of a fake than Mark McGwire, just that she's a lot more up front about it. (RJ Currie)

      President Obama gave his State of the Union Address Wednesday night. He reminded the nation that many are still struggling to keep their jobs. Talking about Democrats in Congress. (Alan Ray)

      Tomorrow night, President Obama will give his State of the Union address. The White House says the speech will focus on American jobs. So, I guess he's going to talk a lot about India. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama said that people should reward success instead of failure. President Obama really is a superhero: Captain Obvious. (Alex Schubert)

      In his speech, President Obama said, No. 1 priority, saving jobs. His job, Joe Biden’s, Harry Reid’s, Nancy Pelosi’s… (Jay Leno)

      During his State of the Union speech Wednesday night, President Obama said, "I don't quit!" Nobody knew he was talking about the speech. (Jerry Perisho)

      After the president spoke, the Republicans gave their rebuttal, during which they pointed out that Obama has repeatedly failed to solve any of the problems they created under President Bush. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      And you know what annoys me? Republicans are all criticizing President Obama for using a teleprompter when he gives a speech. Is that a big deal, using the teleprompter? You know, after eight years of George Bush, I'm glad we have a president who can read. (Jay Leno)

      MSNBC's Chris Matthews said after the State of the Union address he forgot Obama was black for an hour. He must be shooting for that sweet 11:35 time slot on MSKKK. (Bill Williams)

      President Obama has now been called for jury duty in Chicago. I think he should go. I mean, the economy is in bad shape. We could use five bucks a day. Every little bit helps. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama says he blames himself for the upset in the Massachusetts Senate race because he was too remote. Meanwhile, today in Arizona, John McCain couldn't find his remote. (David Letterman)


      You guys following the big healthcare fight? Not going well for the Democrats at all. Nancy Pelosi said yesterday that the House doesn't have enough votes to pass the Senate's healthcare bill. A few more elections and the House won't have Nancy Pelosi either. (Jimmy Fallon)

      On Congress' latest brainstorm to fund health care: They're going to bet a trillion dollars against the San Diego Chargers before their next playoff game. (Brad Dickson)

      And learning more and more about the new Massachusetts senator, Scott Brown. Well, you probably know this. Back in 1982, he posed naked for Cosmo. Yeah, isn't that amazing? He's got it backwards. First you get elected to the Senate, then you get caught with your pants down. It's the other way. He seems to be very confused. (Jay Leno)


      The Supreme Court ruled in a five votes to four decision that corporations can now spend as much as they want on political campaigns. In other words, if Exxon or Dow wants to support a candidate, they can give him or her as much money as they want. I can't see that having any negative repercussions, can you? (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Scott Brown's Senate win fueled speculation that Red Sox star Curt Schilling may run against John Kerry in two years.

Curt Schilling has never run for office and today he's the author of the GOP health care plan. (Argus Hamilton)

      John McCain's wife and her daughter, Meghan, have posed for pictures endorsing gay marriage here in California, although Senator McCain — well, he's still very traditional. He believes marriage should be between an older man and a really hot-looking younger woman. (Jay Leno)

      John Edwards has finally admitted that he is the father of the child of his mistress. Apparently the best way to deal with the "two Americas" is to have one family for each. (Jim Barach)

      Erectile dysfunction can be a blessing. I’ll bet now John Edwards wishes he had had it. (Janice Hough)

      John Edwards and his wife have reportedly legally separated. They are supposed to split 50/50; they will get one America each. (Pedro Bartes)

      Some sad news. Elizabeth Edwards announced she had separated from her husband. Of course, John Edwards was shocked. "What, I was married, what? " Well, John Edwards said today, he's looking forward to moving on with his life, meeting someone special and then cheating on them. (Jay Leno)

      Gawker.com reported yesterday there's a sex tape of former senator John Edwards having sex with his former mistress Rielle Hunter. It is not that exciting; Edwards stops having sex every two seconds to ask for a make-up and hair artists. (Pedro Bartes)

      John and Elizabeth Edwards have separated. For years Elizabeth Edwards has lived with a debilitating form of cancer. John Edwards. (Alan Ray)

      There's a sex tape featuring John Edwards. And here some people thought Barack Obama made a potentially embarrasing choice for V. P. by picking Joe Biden. (Janice Hough)

      Sarah Palin, the ex-Governor of Alaska, Republican Vice Presidential candidate and current Fox News contributor has just landed in Tahiti, French Polynesia. "I'm here to help out in the earth-quake disaster relief in any way I can," said Palin, as she rolled up her sleeves and unpacked her Winchester 12 gauge pump action shotgun. When told that the earth quake had struck Haiti, not Tahiti, Palin responded by saying, "Gosh, I thought I had heard that they spoke French here...?" Palin then offered to assist the French Polynesians by teaching an "Abstinence Only" class at the local high school. Palin was last seen standing by the shore, peering out over the water, and proclaiming, "Isn't that Fairbanks on the horizon...?"(Queen Pollymouth)

      Sarah Palin and her daughter Bristol, mother of an illegitimate son, appeared on "Oprah" to preach sexual abstanance prior to marriage. Next week, Mark Maguire will appear to talk about abstaining from steriod injections until you're out of the minors. (Bob Mills)


      U. S. wages in 2009 saw the smallest rise on record at only 1.5%. And that's only because Wall Street executive bonuses were enough to bring the entire national average up that high. (Jim Barach)

      More problems for Goldman Sachs. Did you know the tax rate it paid on its profits last year was 0.6 percent? And of course, the C. E.O. of Goldman Sachs was furious when he heard this. He said: "What? When did we start paying taxes? This is ridiculous." (Jay Leno)


      Toyota dealers have been swamped with calls about vehicles that may have uncontrollable acceleration problems. The dealers tell them, "Hurry on in"; like Toyota drivers have a choice. (Jerry Perisho)

      Toyota has stopped making and selling some models of vehicles which have had problems with sticking accelerators. The cars all of a sudden speed up for no reason. Which is the opposite from GM vehicles which just sit there no matter how hard you step on the gas pedal. (Jim Barach)

      Apple introduced their newest product Wednesday; the iPad. It's an iPhone on steroids; something Mark McGwire might like. (Jerry Perisho)

      The i-Pad is not practical, only to be used once a month. (Pedro Bartes)

      Everybody is saying how wonderful the "tactile experience" (of the iPad) is, and how it is going to revolutionize the way people interact. I can't wait, because so far my attempts at "tactile experiences" resulted in restraining orders. (Maurizio Mariotti)

      Walmart is laying off 11,000 employees at Sam's Club warehouse stores. They were just going to let go 1,000. But the pink slips only come in extra large quantities. (Alan Ray)

      Wal-Mart announced it's cutting over 11,000 jobs. Wal-Mart said it's cheaper to fire people in bulk. That's an amazing amount of people: 11,000 jobs. The problem is they made the announcement in English, so everybody kept showing up for work. (Jay Leno)

      The rumor from Afghanistan is they are close to capturing Osama bin Laden; they plan to subdue him and torture him mercilessly. That's right, NBC will give Osama their 10:00 PM spot. (Alex Kaseberg)

      The Taliban is trying to soften their image to appeal to the people of Afghanistan. And in fact, Mullah Omar, who's one of their managers, I think, issued a new code of conduct which dictates that there will be no suicide bombings against Afghani civilians, no burning down schools, and no cutting off the ears, nose, or tongue. That seems reasonable to me. (Jimmy Fallon)

      Security programs for the New York City subways are in disarray, according to a report. The subways are actually the safest place on the planet. First, terrorists would have to get past the urine stench to board, then cope with being groped on the trains and then escape the tunnel without being mugged. (Jim Barach)


      Things are getting worse for the poor little kids in Haiti; not only did they suffer an Earthquake, but now they have to suffer the humiliation of wearing the Vikings and Jets Super Bowl Jerseys. (Pedro Bartes)

Which came as somewhat of a shock to many Brits, most of whom never suspected Amy Winehouse of being Scottish. (Bob Mills)


      The state of Israel soon turns 62, meaning, it won't be long before it moves to Florida. (Amy Poehler)

      A survey says that 70% of Afghans say their country is moving in the right direction. It's Afghanistan. In which other direction could it possibly go? (Jim Barach)

      President Barack Obama has sent Vice President Joe Biden to Iraq to help settle a dispute over their upcoming March political elections. The leading candidates are former Sunni Sheiks and former Shiite Sheiks, but with a Democrat being sent to secure the elections, I've got my money on the Tea Party candidates. (Frank King)


      China has no defense against our most potent weapon. If they declare war, we declare Chapter Eleven. (Argus Hamilton)

      It's been raining here in Los Angeles all week. People are evacuating their homes in areas that are vulnerable to mudslides. Is it me or has this state had nothing but disasters since Arnold Schwarzenegger took over as governor? We may need to throw him into a volcano, because it's getting ridiculous. (Jimmy Fallon)


      Another Wikpedia mistake discovered. The current entry for the Nets starts out: “The New Jersey Nets are a professional basketball team.” (Janice Hough)

      The Nets, 4-40, now take on the Washington Wizards, 14-30, on Friday night. "May the best team win" somehow doesn't seem like an appropriate comment. For serious fans of professional NBA basketball, watching the Nets-Wizards game has to be as appealing as it would be for conservatives to watch a Nancy Pelosi-Hillary Clinton debate (Janice Hough)

      L. A. Dodger and Gold Glover Matt Kemp was vacationing in Mexico with singer and model Rihanna. Man, that's what I call a fielder's choice! (RJ Currie)

      Not only is Peyton Manning the best quarterback in football, he is also the best offensive coordinator and the best head coach. He makes up every play, from scratch, as he walks to the line. (Scott Ostler)

      Viking fans have been having a very tough time every since New Orleans beat Minnesota in NFC Championship Game. Not only did their team lose, but Brett Favre has retired and unretired six times since the game ended. (Jake Novak)

      Football reflects the worst of American society. Violence, punctuated by committee meetings. (George Will)

      Tiger Woods appears nude from the waist up on the cover of the current issue of Vanity Fair magazine.

Which is exactly what he's going to end up with after the divorce. (Bob Mills)

      Tiger Woods denied reports that he had changed his ringtone to "Pants on the Ground." (Andy Borowitz)

      Brett Favre's costly late interception against the Saints has been compared to his pick in overtime of the 2008 NFC Championship against the Giants. It was deja-threw all over again. (RJ Currie)

      Miguel Tejada was 31 years old when he left the Orioles in 2007. Two years later, he returns to the Orioles at age 35. Explain. (David Thomas)

      Greg Oden is the latest NBA player facing embarrassment after nude pictures surfaced on the internet. No word on the rumor that Greg Oden and Gilbert Arenas will be teaming up to star in a movie sequel of “Naked Gun.” (Janice Hough)

      Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden is apologizing for nude photos of him that have surfaced on the internet. I saw the pictures and I finally understand why his knees are always injured. His junk probably keeps on hitting against them all the time. (Pedro Bartes)

      Nude photos of Portland Trailblazers center Greg Oden, taken with a cell phone, have surfaced on the Internet. The photos are just further proof that it gets very, very cold in Portland. Fans in Portland will never again refer to him as their "big man". (Jerry Perisho)

      Venus Williams was knocked out of the Australian Open just days after rampant speculation she was playing without underwear. I'm not saying the loss was in the stars, but I was pretty sure I saw a Venus moon rising. (RJ Currie)

      Pete Townshend of The Who says they'll play a medley of the group's hits when they play at halftime in the Super Bowl. Probably because, at their age, they can't remember all of the lyrics to any one of their songs. (Frank King)

      A movie shot entirely by chimpanzees will be aired by the BBC. Apparently the British stole the idea after watching a couple of nights of NBC prime time. (Jim Barach)

      Sandra Bullock won another Best Actress Award for her role as an evangelical Christian woman in The Blind Side. This is unfamiliar territory for movie stars. George Clooney turned down The Oral Roberts Story when he learned it wasn't a gay role. (Argus Hamilton)

      Fox News was the only News network that didn't broadcast the Hope for Haiti benefit show. Fox didn't need to do it; they already did a lot for Haiti; if Pat Robertson was right, Fox News helped Haiti to get rid of the French. (Pedro Bartes)

      Conan O'Brien got thirty-three million dollars from NBC to leave the Tonight Show and not to criticize the network. His future monologues will be very restricted. Under the agreement he is only allowed to discuss the weather and everybody's health. (Argus Hamilton)

      A poll says that Americans trust Fox News above other networks. Mostly because you can trust Fox News to always give the Republican point of view. (Jim Barach)

      While Jay Leno issued a statement that he didn't think a 10 pm slot "was a good idea at the time," while Conan O'Brien told his audience "There are rumors that I'm legally prohibited from saying anything negative about NBC, so good night, ladies and gentlemen." Then he flew to Haiti to buy up their surplus dolls and pins. (Bob Mills)


      J. D. Salinger has passed away and he will be missed. Then again, being a loner, he was always missed. (Gil Stern)

      Reportedly Elin Woods was a guest of the Favres in the past week. No wonder she can't make up her mind whether to leave Tiger or not. (Bill Littlejohn) (Janice Hough)

      Gayle Haggart, wife of defrocked televangelist Ted who was caught cavorting with a male hooker, says her husband is now straight. She credits prayer, years of therapy and a dearth of new Broadway show tunes. (Bob Mills)

      Sadly, the super couple, Brad and Angelina, Brangelina is no more. Maybe Kirsty Ally will hook up with ex-Raider QB, Jim Plunkett, to form the new super couple: Kirplunkett. (Alex Kaseberg)


      Now that Nevada has the first legalized male prostitute for women, there are some questions: is he at risk of becoming a sex addict or a workaholic? Can he get fired for sleeping on the job? Will he let his clients down? What about sexual harassment in the work place? If he does an inadequate job, will he be given a severance package? (Alex Kaseberg)

      In Nevada there is the first ever licensed male prostitute. Women, for $50 he talks dirty to you, for $100 he has sex with you, and for $500 he'll take you shopping and tell you your butt looks skinny in those jeans. (Alex Kaseberg)

      The U. S. fertility rate is 50% higher than that of Europe and Asia. It's actually about even if you exclude the Octomom and Kate plus eight. (Jim Barach)
