      AIMED AT YOUR FUNNY BONE


      TOP QUOTES OF THE WEEK

      Teachers in Milwaukee are suing to stop the school board from taking Viagra out of their health coverage. Officials had planned to eliminate the benefit, but they were met with stiff opposition. (Alan Ray)

      Apparently Mark Hurd, the now former CEO of HP, was “caught” and forced to resign because he falsified expense reports to pay off a female contractor with whom he allegedly had a relationship. Excuse me, the guy made over $24 million in 2009 – he couldn’t have used cash? - Tacky time. I’ll say one thing for Carly Fiorina, when she screwed HP employees, she kept her clothes on. (Janice Hough)

      Suspended Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing says his positive test for a female fertility drug was the result of overtraining. Either that or too many Lamaze classes with Manny Ramirez. (Janice Hough)

      At Louisville basketball coach, Rick Pitino’s, extortion trial against a waitress, one of the most embarrassing details was the sex lasted just fifteen seconds. Oh, I’m sure rival Kentucky fans won’t exploit this: “Hey, Pitino, even a minuteman takes sixty seconds.” “Hey Pitino, even a 30 second commercial takes 30 seconds. ” “Hey Pitino, how was your 15 seconds of fame?” “Hey Pitino, how did it feel to beat the shot clock?” (Alex Kaseberg)

      A British ice cream company is now selling an adults-only ice cream made with Viagra. If your Popsicle lasts more than four hours, you should see a doctor. (Tim Hunter)


      GAY MARRIAGE

      A federal judge in California struck down Proposition 8, saying it was unconstitutional. Gay couples can now get married in the state of California. Remember when women used to say the best ones were either gay or married? Now they can be both. (Jay Leno)

      People are trying to understand the judge's thinking on this. Well, I think it's pretty clear. After seeing straight couples like Bristol and Levi, Larry King and his wives, Charlie Sheen and his wives, gays couldn't screw it up any worse than that, right? So what the heck, go for it. (Jay Leno)


      LEVI JOHNSTON

      Levi Johnston is running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. The current mayor said Levi Johnston should get his high school diploma and keep his clothes on if he wants to win. And then Levi was like, "Dude, he just told me how to win. What an idiot." (Jimmy Fallon)

      I thought this guy (Levi Johnston) was a weasel. Did you hear the latest? He's now offering to sell a tell-all interview about himself, the latest break-up, and inside information about Sarah Palin for $20,000. Looking back, the problem isn't that he refused to wear a condom. The problem is his father didn't wear a condom. (Jay Leno)

      Levi Johnston, the on-again, off-again fiance of Bristol Palin, now tells the world he has political aspirations and will run for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. Is he nuts? The guy has no experience and may not even have voted. You don’t run for mayor with that background, you run for Governor of California. (Janice Hough)


      PRESIDENT OBAMA

      President Obama welcomed the Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints to the White House. How is a wide receiver like Joe Biden at the podium? Both tend to go long. (Alan Ray)

      President Obama announced this month that he created 70,000 new jobs. The bad news is, they are all vacation planners for him and his family. (Jay Leno)

      THE COURTS

      The Senate has confirmed Elena Kagan for the Supreme Court. She now has a job for life. Just like Lindsay Lohan's probation officer. (Jay Leno)

      A New York judge ruled Tuesday that street vendors need a license to sell novelty President Obama condoms. They're selling like hotcakes. Half the country wants to be protected by the president and the other half wants to be protected from the president. (Argus Hamilton)


      THE STATES & LOCAL NEWS

      California state workers will demonstrate at theaters playing Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's new movie "The Expendables" to protest his furlough policy.

      U.S. POLITICS &. POLITICIANS

      Newt (gingrich) is so pro-marriage, he can't stop doing it. He is so morally upright, that he's only had sex after he was married. Just not always to the woman he was married to. (Stephen Colbert)

      California Senate candidate and former HP CEO Carly Fiorina says that U.S. corporations are better at creating jobs without government intervention. Yeah, but based on her tenure at HP, they are better at creating them in India and China. (Janice Hough)

      In California, it looks like both Carly Fiorina and Meg Whitman have finally come out against repealing the 14th amendment. While we're on the subject of amendments, however, many voters would feel more better about both women had they actually been taking advantage of the 19th. (Janice Hough)


      TAXES & THE ECONOMY

      The economy is so bad right now, a lot of women in Beverly Hills are being forced to marry for love. (Jay Leno)

      We’ve been following Steven Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant that made a daring escape — from employment.
