Long Beach Man Caught Smuggling Meth Disguised As Snickers Bars

Mr. Harris will face a long trial
His Snickers made nobody smile.
Smuggling meth to Japan?
Something tells me this man
Is not going anywhere for awhile.

Best line from the article: "There was no tasty nougat, caramel, or peanuts to be found anywhere."

Obama Flip Flops Stance On Negative Ads

"I will not run on negative ads,"
Barry swore. Then came oodles and scads
Of these mudslinging claims.
Guess the President's aims
At the high road were just short-lived fads.

Obama changes mind on "good-guy" campaign tactics

What happened to this?

Television Icon Andy Griffith Dead at 86

A sheriff, a lawyer, and singer;
The memories of Andy will linger.
Hollyweird was outclassed
By the recently passed.
Not bad for a lib'ral left-winger.

Class act all the way around. So long Andy Griffith. :(

Obama to Eurozone: Get Your Debt Under Control

He tells Europe to shore up their debt?
That's the cockiest thing he's said yet!
Let's give thought and ligation
To our own situation,
Lest the plank in our eye we forget.

Obama tells Europe to watch spending, Germany finds it ironic...

Now That's a REAL Golf Hazard

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's -- a door?
Can I take that last putt off my score?
True, I missed it wide right
But that noise ... impolite!
Hey pilot, you should have yelled 'FORE'!

Plane door lands on Florida golf course...

IPO price to start: thirty-eight,
Then it rose seven bucks! Oh, but wait...
It lost eighteen percent.
Hear the buyer's lament:
We will stop clicking 'like' and click 'hate'.

Arizona is wondering, shall it
Dispute Barry's birthplace locale? It
Is up to Hawaii
To prove, that is why we
Aren't sure if he'll be on the ballot.

Back when Barry was young, to our shock.
So he feasted on pup?
Yeah... that's pretty messed up.
Bet he said, "Tastes like chicken, bock-bock!"

Media types laugh as Obama makes dog-eating quips

Hilary Rosen: Doesn't think raising 
kids is work

She says Ann hasn't worked in her life?
Goes to show that Ms. Rosen is rife
With stale beans in her head.
She should honor instead
Being both five kids' mom and a wife!

Who says taking care of five kids isn't "work"? Hilary Rosen, that's who...

Ozzie Guillen Suspended Five Games For Castro Remark

Was spoken in Spanish,
Now the league wants to banish
Poor Ozzie, who'll sadly lament it.

Other crazy things Guillen has said...

Police Go Undercover...As Bunnies!

To endanger your life isn't funny.
It can cost you your life, limbs and money.
Should you choose to ignore
The seat belt laws, you're
Gonna have to beware of the bunny.

Leaving millions of fans saying, "What?"

Lions and hikers and bears, oh my!

Jane Fonda Miscast as Nancy Reagan

Hanoi Jane is low rent, like a stripper.
As a pal, I'd prefer Jack the Ripper.
So my feelings are strong
That I think that it's wrong
That they'd cast her to play Mrs. Gipper.

Although, I guess with movies you have to allow for some suspension of disbelief...

Interviewers Asking Job Seekers For Facebook Passwords

In an interview, we've been required
To reveal if we quit or were fired
From our previous job.
Now they're trying to rob
Us of passwords? Mine's: J@sonUrHir3d.

So if the interviewer would just read that back to me, we'll shake on it...

Bye Bye Tebow, the Broncos Have a New Quarterback

Mister Manning has signed with the Bronc's
The Titans' fan sniffles and honks.
And the 'niners are hatin'
The blow-off by Peyton,
And when called by Seattle, "No thonx."

My apologies to Ogden Nash for blatantly ripping off his word.

Did you hear about little Sarkozy?
He felt life at the palace was prosy.
Bringing shame to his pop,
Threw some fruit at a cop...
I would beat on his buns 'till they're rosy.

Louis Sarkozy scolded for pelting a policewoman with tomatoes.

7-11 Runs Out of Sausages, Sends Customer Into Rage

Ms. Glanville, I offer my thoughts:
If you've partied and drank a few shots
And you're needing to eat,
It would be more discreet
To buy chips if they're all out of brats.

World's Tallest Man Stops Growing

Sultan Kosen, a whopping 8'3",
Was growing as fast as a tree.
So they zapped at his gland
And it worked, just as planned:
He stopped growing (except his goatee).

Doctors at University of Virginia treat the world's tallest man and "stunt" his growth., he doesn't have a goatee, but "hair" didn't rhyme.

Invisible Mercedes... Sure You Have One... Uh-huh.

Invisible car? That's so awesome!
And Mercedes to boot. Go withdraw some
Cold cash from your bank:
It's expensive and swank.
You could say they don't work if you saw some.

Mercedes showcases "invisible" car with the help of flexible LED mats and a camera.

UN Condemns Israel For Treatment of Palestinian Women

Condemnation came from the UN
Saying Israel's at fault once again.
If Palestine's ladies
Live lifestyles from Hades,
I'd blame it on Palestine's men.

No condemnation for Syria, Libya, or Iran?

USA Chant Deemed Racist?

Can't believe what I'm reading today:
It's racist to chant USA?
Kids in glad jubilation
Shout the name of our nation
Then are branded as bigots? NO WAY!!

You think I'm kidding? This actually happened...
Last time I checked, USA was the name of a country, not a race.

King of the Jungle Urinates on Patriots Wet Receiver

Ochocinco, your life is a dream;
You play football on Tom Brady's team.
But today you're disgraced
By a shot that's well placed
By a lion. You stood in his stream.

Chancellor Merkel Has Five Beers At A Party

Ms. Merkel was gracious and dear
When the waiter "delivered" her beer.
The serving tray slipped
And and its contents were dripped
Down her back soaking clear to her rear.

Expecting to be drawn and quartered
For spilling five glasses of portered,
The waiter's heart sped
Until Angela said,
"This isn't the drink that I ordered."

Waiter says, "Oopsie...did I do thaaaaat?" 
No... not really but read the article to see what he did say.

Gas Near $6 Per Gallon In Some Parts of USA

In the Gulf States (where oil rigs are many)
And Alaska (where crude's found a-plenty)
Gas prices are steep.
In Wyoming they're cheap
Where much less oil is drilled (hardly any).

Price per gallon: 
Tampa = $5.89
Alaska = $6.34
Wyoming = $2.75 
I can't believe I'm thinking $2.75 per gallon is cheap...

The World's First Test Tube Hamburger to be Served in October

I love burgers... at least until now.
They do what!!? I don't want to know how.
I don't think I could ever
Eat beef that was never
Even actually part of the cow.

Test tube burgers coming to a drive-in near you?

At a car, then were shamed

To "smoke" but exploded
And wrecked a man's teeth and his tongue.

Cinncinati High School Pays Students To Attend

With a grad rate of fourteen percent,
Dohn High School felt they must present
Some type of incentive--
Pay students? Inventive,
But not helpful. It's money misspent.
