      WEAKLY HUMERUS NEWS 10-17-09


      When Vice President Joe Biden heard that President Obama won the Nobel
      Prize, he was speechless. So, it's already doing some good. (Jay Leno)

      The Republicans still can't believe that Barack Obama won the Nobel
      Peace Prize. And the Democrats can't believe that Sarah Palin wrote a
      book. So, it's even. (Jay Leno)

      The Nobel Prize for lack of chemistry went to John McCain and Sarah
      Palin. (David Letterman)

      Poor David Letterman. Remember the good ol' days when the only woman
      who hated Letterman was Sarah Palin? (Alex Kaseberg)

      What do the Yankees call a $1250 seat? Half Price. (Bill Shaikin)

      Royals first baseman Billy Butler became the first big-leaguer since
      1900 to hit three two-baggers in a game four times in the same season,
      a quadruple triple double. (Elias Sports Bureau)

      A fan at the University of Minnesota's new TCF Bank Stadium got so
      unruly during last week's Gophers-Wisconsin game that police had to

      Pioneer Press)

      The L.A. Dodgers had Hugh Hefner and three playmates recite the Dodger
      Stadium code of conduct for fans before Wednesday's game. What a

      balls in play they couldn't restore order for ten minutes. (Argus

      A few new Nobel prizes. For Joe Biden, if he can ever learn to shut up
      – "The Nobel Cease Prize." For Captain "Sully" Sullenberger – "The
      Nobel Geese Prize." For AIG - "The Nobel Fleece Prize." For Conan
      O'Brien's hair – "The Nobel Grease Prize." (Janice Hough)

      Why Obama won: It was a toss-up when Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace
      Prize. The goal this year was to encourage someone with great
      potential who hasn't yet delivered on his promises. The Nobel
      Committee couldn't decide between Obama and any of a billion newborn
      babies. Ultimately he won because it was felt he would deliver a
      better acceptance speech. (Scott Witt)

      recognize the president's restraint in not bombing Rio following the
      Olympics' announcement. (Mark Russell)

      President Barack Obama has won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize. Obama

      crashing and rockets into the surface of the moon. (Frank King)

      smoke. ( Jerry Perisho)

      President Obama wants to put an end to the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"

      President Obama hosted a basketball game at the White House Thursday
      night for several members of Congress and his Cabinet. Every time a
      player shouted “back door, back door”, Joe Biden answered, “Yeah,
      yeah, I’ll go out the way I came in.” The only double-dribble happened
      every time John McCain tried to drink from the Gatorade bottle. The
      referee warned team captain Sonia Sotomayor, “This is your final
      period”, and she replied, “Oh, I haven’t had one of those in years.”
      At the end of the game, the score was tied, so the Supreme Court had
      to declare a winner. (Jerry Perisho)

      President Barack Obama called on Congress Wednesday to approve $250

      money to half of those seniors. (Pedro Bartes)

      It was announced last night that President Obama wants to send $250
      checks to over 57 million American seniors. When he heard the news,
      John McCain was like, "Forget everything I said, this guy's
      awesome!" (Jimmy Fallon)

      Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, says she will eventually retire

      arrested in an airport bathroom. (Craig Ferguson)

      Well, here's some news. President Obama's healthcare plan passed the
      Senate Finance Committee. Republicans are disappointed because they
      had their own version of the health plan. That was going to be swine
      flu masks and Purell. (David Letterman)

      The healthcare bill passed the Senate Finance Committee by a vote of
      14-9. The Bill cost over $800 billion. And that's just what lobbyists
      had to give to members of Congress. (Jay Leno)

      Republicans are now planning to filibuster President Obama's health-
      care plan. You know, it is a legislative device. A guy gets up and
      talks all night without really saying anything. It's like having
      dinner with Regis. (David Letterman)


      Alaskans each received a thirteen-hundred-dollar check Thursday as
      their share of Alaska's oil revenues. Environmentalists want to keep

      Social Security is the government's most popular program. A couple of

      All Nippon Air told passengers Tuesday to empty their bladders before

      Headlines: "Troops in Afghanistan to don Vietnam throwback
      uniforms" (Ironic Times)

      The big question with troops in Afghanistan is, How soon can we expect
      a decision from President Obama? I don't think it's going to happen
      anytime soon. Remember — it took five months to decide on a puppy.
      (Jay Leno)

      If Oakland Raiders Coach Tom Cable is indicted for assault after

      Speculation was that Limbaugh was considered by the league to be too
      controversial, you know, unlike Michael Vick, Pacman Jones, coach Tom
      Cable, Plaxico Burress. The N.F.L. hates controversy. Hey, some good
      news for Rush. The Oakland Raiders are offering to give him the team
      for free.(Jay Leno)

      Rush Limbaugh, who is trying to buy the St. Louis Rams, has downplayed
      racial comments that he's made in the past by saying if he was a
      racist, why would he want to be part of a business that is 70% African

      Majority Of Newspapers Now Purchased By Kidnappers To Prove Date:
      Print journalism owes its solvency to the loyal hostage-takers still
      paying cover price. According to a report published this week in
      American Journalism Review, 93 percent of all newspaper sales can now
      be attributed to kidnappers seeking to prove the day's date in filmed
      ransom demands. "Although the vast majority of Americans now get their
      news from the Internet or television, a small but loyal criminal
      element still purchases newspapers at a steady rate," study author and
      Columbia journalism professor Linus Ridell said. "The sober authority
      of the printed word continues to hold value for those attempting to
      extort large sums of money from wealthy people who wish to see their
