>> OPENING WORDS FROM THE EDITORBy Colin Vassallo, [Editor@...]
Seems like Yahoo! Groups is once again screwing up. Some Yahoo.com and
Hotmail.com users are receiving the newsletter like 3 days late. This is
not our fault, but it's thanks to the crappy service the company has
been offering lately. A few weeks ago thousands of hotmail.com users
were booted out when apparently the newsletter was sent when hotmail.com
wasn't responding during that particular time of the day and Yahoo!
Groups simply removed everyone. I am adding everyone back slowly since I
had a backup of the list.
If anyone is going to Smackdown! tonight, please drop us some notes from
the show. Not much news going on today. Back tomorrow.

>> THE ABNORMAL STRETCHBy Rick Rockwell, [rickrockwell@...]
Ruthless Aggression? Raw Manic Depression? Divas Obsession?
THESE questions and more will be answered in today's exciting, action
packed column, The Abnormal Stretch. (Cue the intro music)
I'm proud to be an American, where at least I know I'm free, And I won't
forget the men who died who gave that right to me, And I gladly stand up
next to you and defend her still today, 'Cause there ain't no doubt I
love this land . God Bless the U.S.A.' (Proud to be an American, Lee
From the deep and dark depths of Earth, comes a plague that is infecting
millions and I mean MILLIONS of people. Women, children, old, and young
are suffering. The plague is known as the WWE. World-renowned Dr. Double
R is here to inform everyone on this dreaded, deadly plague.
Please make sure to look out for these warning signs and if you have any
of these symptoms, please contact world-renowned Dr. Double R right
1) Ruthless aggression - an unsparing hostile action or behavior
Warning Signs - If you hear or see any WWE wrestler, commentator, or any
other employee utter out these words or act in a hostile behavior.
Symptoms - If you change the channel instead of watching WWE
television; If you go to a movie instead of a live show; If you slam
your friend Brian's head into a water cooler at work; If you play sweet
chin music on your loved one's face.
2) RAW Manic Depression - a WWE show that is characterized by periods of
elation and periods of deep sadness.
Warning Signs - If a RAW show is great one week and lousy the next week;
or if the show is great the first hour and terrible in the second hour;
or if one segment is terrific but the next segment is horrible.
Symptoms - If one minute you are screaming, like you just won the
lottery, over moments like these: ladder matches, HBK's return, return
of Chris Benoit; Or if you are deeply saddened the next minute; like
someone ran over your puppy dog, by moments like these: Flair losing
ownership, RVD not getting the monster push, the lack of credibility to
the WWE titles, and the whole name change from WWF to WWE.
3) Divas Obsession - the morbid persistence of thoughts about WWE Divas.
Warning Signs - If you see matches like these coming on: Lingerie
matches, bra and panties matches, strip your opponent matches, oil
matches, evening gown matches, and a birthday suit match with the Divas
and Double R in a hot tub.
Symptoms - If you were glued to the Divas Undressed show; if you have
downloaded more than 20 pictures of any WWE Diva; if you drool when you
see Stacy's legs, Trish's puppies, or Terrie's backside.
Currently Dr. Double R has experimental drugs to help ease the pain but
there is no known cure for this plague.
Double R needs a little feedback from you fine readers. No, its not
photos of all you beautiful ladies that subscribe to this great
newsletter, although I wouldn't mind it; I need some input as to how I
should update the Double R website (how often, with what info, etc.).
Everyone out there have a safe and fun 4th of July. Yours truly will be
partying for two straight days because my birthday is July 5th.
