      AIMED AT YOUR FUNNY BONE

      TOP QUOTES OF THE WEEK

      Chutzpah (n.): When the Governor of Texas cuts funding 75% for volunteer fire departments, then demands federal disaster relief to fight wildfires, while calling for cuts in government spending. (Ironic Times)

      The objection to the Tea Partiers is not that they try to make us think as they do, but that they try to make us do as they think. (Author Unknown)

      President Obama is more popular overseas than here. Then again, he's created more jobs over there than here. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama will talk about his jobs act bill at 1030 from the Rose Garden. The speech will be simulcast in Chinese and Hindi, so the people who will actually get these jobs can follow along. (Jake Novak)

      The Chicago Board of Health has cited Wrigley Field food vendors for multiple health violations. But the fans are taking it as good sports. Now after the seventh inning, they sing "Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, antibiotics for e. Coli attacks." (Bob Mills)

      I'm thinking the Republicans are going to have a hard time convincing people they represent America when they keep scheduling their debates on TV opposite football games. (Tim Hunter)

      Republican faces say, "We're a bunch of conscienceless pricks who'd shoot ourselves in the face if Obama said he liked our smile." (Bill Maher

      The Republican candidates all say they will abolish Obamacare on Day One of their presidency. What about Day Two? They will tell the American people to stay healthy. (Mark Russell)

      A law signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger will soon release thousands of female prisoners. The man's a genius. Soon thousands of women who haven't been with a man for years will be free and thinking they owe Arnold a favor. (Conan O'Brien)

      According to a new poll, only 55 percent of Americans think President Obama is intelligent. Yeah, that may not sound impressive, but it's up 55 percent over the last president. (Jimmy Fallon)

      A poll says that 32% of Americans prefer a male boss, while 22% prefer a female boss. The other 46% say just having any kind of boss again would be nice. (Jim Barach)

      REPUBLICAN DEBATES & CANDIDATES

      If the Tea Party cared about us they wouldn't have scheduled their debate against the opening night of football, especially the Patriots. That's something Kenyans would do. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      The moderators were Wolf Blitzer and Larry the Cable Guy. Rick Santorum won the swimsuit competition. Michele Bachmann won Miss Crazyality. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      The Reagan Library held a GOP presidential debate Wednesday between eight of the candidates. These are starting to sound the same. They spent the first half-hour arguing about which one of them God called first to come in and read for the part of the president. (Argus Hamilton)

      All the people running in the race have criticized Social Security and Medicaid. I don't think that's running a fair race because it targets seniors who usually aren't very fast runners. . (Nancy Jo Perdue)

      Mitt Romney said that President Obama does not understand that the president doesn't create jobs. Then Romney went on to explain his plan to create jobs once he's elected president. (Jay Leno)

      Mitt Romney's campaign is offering a chance to win a day with Romney. It's called, 'Vote for Mitt Romney or else you'll have to spend a day with Mitt Romney.' (Conan O'Brien)

      Mitt Romney drew cheers at the GOP debate Monday as he vowed to return Winston Churchill's bust to the Oval Office. Good show! If the world were a network television lineup the sitcom starring the Anglo-Saxons would be called Everybody Loves Imperialism. (Argus Hamilton)

      It's being reported that Rick Perry met his wife when they were on a playground in elementary school.  Apparently, little Michelle Bachman tried to break them up by trying to "pray the play away". (Tim Hunter)

      People are saying Rick Perry seems to be the leader among the scores of GOP presidential candidates. But, he still doesn't represent the majority of Americans. Otherwise, he'd have an occasional bad hair day. (Nancy Jo Perdue)

      GOP presidential candidate Rick Perry met with Donald Trump Wednesday night in New York. Were they discussing the Donald possibly being Perry's running mate? Or just thinking of opening their own branch of "Hair Club for Men?" (Janice Hough)

      Mitt Romney said today that Dick Cheney "is the kind of person" he'd like to have as running mate. Translation, he doesn't want to do the work of governing any more than George W. did? Either that or Romney wants to make sure he has the best hair on the ticket.   (Janice Hough)

      Tim Pawlenty endorsed Mitt Romney, calling him a "bedrock conservative." When he heard this, John McCain said, "I grew up in Bedrock, and I don't remember seeing him." (Conan O'Brien)

      Texas Governor Rick Perry decided to make Social Security a campaign issue by describing the Social Security system as one big Ponzi scheme. That is not true at all. People don't go to jail if they refuse to pay into a Ponzi scheme. (Argus Hamilton)

      God attempted to put distance between Himself and the presidential candidacy of Gov. Rick Perry of Texas: “Rick Perry is qualified to be President in the same way that Olive Garden is qualified to be Italy. (Andy Borowitz)

      Rick Perry was attacked by many of the other GOP presidential candidates Monday for calling Social Security a big Ponzi scheme. Everyone hopes this isn't true. If Social Security turns out to be a big Ponzi scheme, Ruth Madoff could go to jail for double-dipping. (Argus Hamilton)

      It's being reported that Rick Perry met his wife when they were in elementary school. There was another boy that liked her too but Perry had him executed. (Conan O'Brien)

      Michele Bachmann is for people who find Sarah Palin too intellectual. She is pure. She is always completely fact-free. She said the Founding Fathers worked tirelessly until they got rid of slavery. So from now on Thomas Jefferson's slaves will be known as friends with benefits. (Bill Maher)

      Michele Bachmann said she would do away with the Department of Education if elected president. In fact, if there's no Department of Education, it would make it easier for her to be elected. (Jay Leno)

      Bachmann's campaign manager stepped down, her deputy campaign manager left, and God hasn't called her in weeks. (Jay Leno)

      Some tea party members at the Republican debate cheered the idea of a sick uninsured person being left to die. In fairness, the person in question was one of the moms from "Toddlers & Tiaras." (Conan O'Brien)

      During the tea party debate, Jon Huntsman said that America's dependency on foreign oil is like being addicted to heroin. Then it got a little weird when he was like, "Trust me." (Jimmy Fallon)

      The Republican debate set looked like the inside of Betsy Ross's vagina. Or so I've been told. Anyway, I believe there was a point to this Amerigasm, and that was for seven candidates to give a beatdown to Rick Perry. (Jon Stewart)

      September is International Square Dance Month. It has been proposed the GOP presidential candidates give up debates and have a dance off since they've been dancing around the issues any way. . (Nancy Jo Perdue)

      SARAH PALIN BIOGRAPHY

      According to a new book, Sarah Palin slept with a black NBA player, Glen Rice, a year before she got married. I think technically this makes her a Kardashian sister. I think Sarah and Glen would make a great couple. He'd shoot 3-pointers. She'd shoot everything else. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      In a new book, it is learned that Sarah Palin once had sex with NBA star Glen Rice. Sarah was very disappointed when she discovered that having sex with a black athlete does not make her a Kardashian sister. Since the affair, Glen Rice has spent the last 25 years dribbling between his legs. (Jerry Perisho)

      USA Today reports that analysts say Joe McGinniss's new book "The Rogue' negative book may not hurt Sarah Palin. Well, yeah, it's not like many of her supporters actually read. Palin is reportedly particularly incensed. Sarah feels strongly that if there are going to be books containing lies about her, she wants to write them. (Janice Hough)

      Sports and political words buzzing over the Palin-Rice fling. Well, at least we know Sarah never slept with Lebron James. They might flirt but neither of them would be likely to go all the way. (Janice Hough)

      The Sarah Palin-Glen Rice story has even taken some media attention away from Rick Perry for a day. Rumor has it Perry's now got his staff looking for a female athlete who will admit to a one-nighter with him before his marriage, but it has to be a female athlete. (Janice Hough)

      THE POST OFFOCE

      Are they really doing away with the US Postal Service? Is this any way to treat our men and women in uniform? With no more snail-mail, what will happen to the snails? They could always go to work at the Division of Motor Vehicles. (Mark Russell)

      The Post Office says it may shut down by winter if it goes into default as they are losing business by people using the Internet more for communication. Although the Post Office argues it is still faster than the Internet for people who subscribe to AOL. (Jim Barach)

      The Postal Service is outlining more proposed cuts, including scrapping hundreds of mail distribution centers and cutting its transport network. In other words, you'll probably keep your local post office, there just won't be any mail in it. (Jake Novak)

      THE JACKIE KENNEDY TAPES

      Jackie Kennedy said in tapes released Friday that Martin Luther King organized sex parties in Washington in the early Sixties. She's one to talk. Whenever Jackie wanted to see her husband privately she had to put on a blonde wig and wait her turn in the secretarial pool. (Argus Hamilton)

      Jackie Kennedy's tapes reveal JFK tried to calm her about Martin Luther King's hotel room orgies. He told her sex parties were no big deal. If Bill Clinton had known JFK said this he would have used it instead of the Ask Not quotation over the entrance to his library. (Argus Hamilton)

      SCARLET JOHANSSON

      The latest leaked picture scandal involves Scarlett Johansson, with candid photos appearing to show her naked appearing online. Apparently the FBI lottery to be assigned to the case closed yesterday due to too many applicants. (Janice Hough)

      The FBI is investigating the hacking of naked photos of actress Scarlett Johansson on her phone; now why would the FBI become involved with such a trivial case? Oh yeah, naked pictures of Scarlett Johansson. (Alex Kaseberg

      The FBI is investigating the release of nude photos allegedly hacked from the cell phone of actress Scarlett Johansson. Thank you, Rupert Murdoch, this makes up for all the other hacking. (Jerry Perisho)

      Scarlett Johansson was victimized Tuesday by hackers who stole nude pictures the movie star took of herself with her cellphone. The photos are all over the Internet. In New York that could cost you a U. S. congressional seat but in Los Angeles it can get you elected to one. (Argus Hamilton)

      PRESIDENT OBAMA

      President Obama is determined to help the unemployed because it's looking increasingly likely that in a year, he'll be one of them. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      President Obama described himself as an eternal optimist. He then explained that he's the kind of person that sees the country as "half employed." (Conan O'Brien)

      President Obama gave his big speech the other night on job creation. Several Republicans said later that it was the first time they could say they didn't believe in creation. (Tim Hunter)

      After saying the jobs bill is paid for, President Obama now says that it will be paid for by raising taxes over 10 years. I can't figure out if he's the kind of guy who makes infomercials, or the kind of guy who falls for infomercials. (Jay Leno)

      President Obama introduced his $447 billion jobs plan. A lot of economists say it could work — if we had $447 billion. (Jay Leno)

      In his speech President Obama called the plan the 'American Jobs Act.' It sounds a lot better than the original title, the 'Save My Ass Act.' (Jay Leno)

      President Obama wants to get Americans back to what we do best. He wants teachers teaching, police policing, firemen fighting fires, and the rest of us checking Facebook. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      Political experts say the election of a Republican to replace former NY congressman Anthony Weiner is a wake up call for Pres. Obama. I'd have thought 15% unemployment and the worst recession since 1929 might have already had his attention. (Jerry Perisho)

      In his speech, President Obama introduced a $400 billion plan called the "American Jobs Act." They would have had a more creative name, but the guy that comes up with names got laid off six months ago. (Jimmy Fallon)

      Obama says the jobs bill will be paid for. I don't like this focus on paying for things. That's what future generations are for. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      President Obama said "No single individual built America on their own." When she heard that, Sarah Palin was like, "Hello? Paul Bunyan?" (Jimmy Fallon)

      President Obama's re-election campaign is doing a contest where contributors can win a chance to have dinner with the president. Or, if you come in 2nd place, a mid-afternoon Hot Pocket with Joe Biden. (Conan O'Brien)

      The White House is planning an official state trip to Australia this November. Which explains why Biden spent all day looking for an Australian translator. (Jimmy Fallon)

      ADMINISTRATION

      The Labor Department says that billions of dollars in unemployment benefits were paid in error. Although it all worked out since the people they paid are now out of work anyway. (Jim Barach)

      THE CONGRESS

      Congress is investigating why the Obama administration invested over $500 million in a solar panel company called Solyndra, which filed for bankruptcy. Only the White House could pick a solar panel company that goes broke in California in the summer. I don't want to say the solar panels are bad, but they absorb less sunlight than John Boehner. (Jay Leno)

      House Speaker John Boehner said that President Obama's jobs plan merits consideration. Then he was like, "In fact, I'll do it right now. OK, I hate it." (Jimmy Fallon)

      Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he's in no hurry to bring President Obama's jobs bill up for a vote. But he does say it will happen before Obama is looking for a new job in January, 2013. (Jake Novak)

      Senator Dianne Feinstein says her treasurer has stolen from her campaign and it may be "wiped out." This is an outrage because everyone knows you're not supposed to steal from the voters until AFTER you get re-elected. (Jake Novak)

      His New York district is having a special election to replace Anthony Wiener. I was going to make a joke, but it's just so hard at this point. (Jimmy Fallon)

      GOP candidate Bob Turner led by six points for the New York congressional seat vacated by Democrat Anthony Weiner. It was a safe seat until he posted naked pictures of himself on Twitter. Democrats would've had this seat in their hip pocket but they couldn't keep their pants on. (Argus Hamilton)

      The Democrats lost a seat they've held in New York since the 1920s. The White House said, "At least President Obama created one new job." (Jay Leno)

      A Republican is going to be filling Anthony Weiner's Congressional seat, but not before thoroughly wiping it down. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      The House is considering a bill to make gun permits valid across state lines. Apparently it's for people who live along the Texas border who can't shoot their neighbor because they live in another state. (Jim Barach)

      A study says that in the past few years 5,400 congressional staffers have gone to work for lobbyists. That makes sense everyone in Congress is pretty much working for the lobbyists anyway. (Jim Barach)

      THE STATES

      Governor Jerry Brown went on a partisan attack to try to raise taxes Monday. He said Republicans treat taxes like they're some sort of sexually-transmitted disease. This explains why two out of three conservatives shrink-wrap their IRS tax returns in condoms. (Argus Hamilton)

      The conservative majority in the North Carolina legislature wants a ban on gay marriage. Some cite religious objections. It’s not God’s will for two men or two women to bicker that much. (Alan Ray)

      To help ease prison overcrowding, California is going to start releasing female inmates with children early. But civil liberties attorneys say sending these women back to their kids may be considered cruel and unusual punishment. (Jake Novak)

      California lawmakers sent a bill to the governor's desk on Tuesday which would give college aid to illegal aliens. It helps immigrant families to move up. Thanks to this bill, today's fully-employed farmworker can become tomorrow's unemployed college graduate. (Argus Hamilton)

      California is considering a program that would release 1,000 female inmates from prison. The only problem is finding them employment. There are only so many strip clubs in the state. (Jim Barach)

      Michigan will require body weight reports on all school children. Which will be easy since GM's cutbacks have made all their old truck scales available. (Jim Barach)

      Since Rick Perry has been governor of Texas, 234 criminals have been executed. That's the difference between Texas and California: In California, those criminals would have been given tryouts for the Raiders. (Jay Leno)

      LOCAL NEWS

      The city of San Diego suffered through a 9 ½-hour electrical outage last week, but everyone finally got their power back. Except for the Padres, of course. (Dwight Perry)

      San Francisco may require nudists to cover themselves before they sit on a public bench. This would clear up existing ordinances, especially for males. The current laws leave them dangling. (Alan Ray)

      San Francisco supervisors banned public transportation passengers Thursday from sexually rubbing against other passengers Thursday. It's typical California logic. They banned the one activity that might actually persuade people to take public transportation. (Argus Hamilton)

      New York's Fashion Week was picketed Friday by members of the Westboro Baptist Church of Kansas, who said high fashion teaches girls to dress like whores. They don't get it. Teen unemployment is so high that Fashion Week should qualify for a tax credit for job training. (Argus Hamilton)

      Seattle has passed a law requiring businesses with five employees to offer paid sick days. The only problem is finding any business that still has five workers. (Jim Barach)

      In Michigan a man in a President Obama mask robbed a bank. Either that of President Obama has an exciting new plan to reduce the deficit. (Conan O'Brien)

      Police say a church in Phoenix was doubling as a house of prostitution. Worship in this sanctuary is a bit different. When someone shouts “Halleluiah”, it’s not their hands that are in the air. (Alan Ray

      A New Mexico state trooper, in full uniform, was photographed having sex with a woman on the hood of her car. He clocked her going 50 in a 30 mph zone, then she clocked him going two minutes in a ten minute zone. (Alex Kaseberg)

      A California lawyer told MSNBC she took a job as a stripper to help pay her bills. Not only that, but her new job gets her a lot more respect from people. (Jim Barach)

      A Florida man was arrested for exposing himself through a car’s sunroof. That’s not the only infraction. He was also ticketed for not using a hands free device. (Alan Ray

      A Mississippi man was arrested outside a grocery store for allegedly stuffing food into his cargo shorts – including two live lobsters. He was arrested on probable claws. (RJ Currie)

      An Amish investor is being accused of taking his community for millions of dollars. Apparently he convinced them to invest in futuristic items like film cameras, typewriters and rotary telephones. (Jim Barach

      U.S. POLITICS &. POLITICIANS

      A new poll shows the GOP split down the middle on those between those who do and don't consider themselves Tea Party members. And the party is deeply divided on many of the issues. Who do they think they are? Democrats. (Janice Hough)

      Republicans are hoping to seize on unhappiness among some Jewish voters over the president's treatment of Israel. In fact, Israel is the thing most Jewish voters are talking about when on the unemployment line. (Jake Novak)

      Al Gore will launch a TV blitz Thursday called Twenty-Four Hours of Reality and he's asking everyone on Facebook to link their Facebook walls to his show to help save the planet. This shows Al doesn't understand the Facebook crowd. They will de-friend the planet before they stop blogging their thoughts all day and poking each other commitment-free. (Argus Hamilton)

      Dick Cheney was grilled by the women of 'The View.' So apparently he's willing to undergo torture himself to prove a point. (Jay Leno)

      My guest tonight is Al Gore, unless the Supreme Court decides it should be someone else. (Stephen Colbert)

      This week, Michele Bachmann and Cindy McCain had dinner together at a Mexican restaurant in Arizona. It wasn't good. First they sent their entree back to the kitchen, then they sent the kitchen staff back to Guadalajara. (Jimmy Fallon)

      THE ECONOMY

      Nearly 1-in-6 Americans lives in poverty. That means they have dial-up Internet, an unheated swimming pool, and a smart phone that's more than a year old. (Jerry Perisho)

      The economy is so bad that in Texas Rick Perry had to execute convicts just by throwing a toaster in the bath tub! That's how bad. (Jay Leno)

      The World Economic Forum, which ranks economies, moved the United States down to 5th place. In 1st place, Switzerland. Man, they must sell a bunch of cheese. (Tim Hunter)

      According to the World Economic Forum, Switzerland has the best economy in the world. Just think, the United States could be on top again if President Obama would just learn how to yodel. (Wendel Potter)

      The World Economic Forum, which ranks economies, moved the United States down to 5th place. But we're still the fattest, so that's good. Switzerland came in 1st place. I guess those little army knives are selling like crazy. (Jimmy Kimmel)

      A 2005 law requires US reserve banks to keep ordering one-dollar coins, but virtually no Americans want them. They're too easy to confuse with quarters, and Americans are just used to paper dollars and refuse to take the coins. So bank vaults nationwide are filling up with them. The Federal Reserve Bank in Baltimore says they have only a small portion of them, and they are literally running out of storage room. By 2016, reserve banks will be expected to have $2 billion worth of dollar coins, and they say they have to start hunting for other federal facilities that have more space. The good news is that by 2016, they'll actually be worth a quarter, so problem solved! (Reeder & Ainsworth)

      BUSINESS & LABOR

      After an STD outbreak, all Los Angeles area porn shoots have been shut down. The porn industry has been hit so hard financially they asked for a Federal bail out. But congre
