Convinced he could successfully talk his way out of
the predicament, Private Warren Joliet explained how much skill was
actually involved in parking the tank in this fashion. “Anybody
can drive one … I’d like to see someone do this.”
Private Warren is currently under indefinite military arrest.
The ship’s captain Grover Fallon denied late Thursday that his
unwillingness to leave port before the tide went out reflected badly
on his professional judgment. “It’s not like I sank the
damn thing. It’s not going that bad.” What was going bad,
however, was Captain Fallon’s cargo of fresh fruit.
Forklift Operator Mickey Dollend remained at home Wednesday after
his near-disastrous accident late Tuesday morning. When asked if Mr.
Dollend would face disciplinary action, company officials replied
that “Mickey is always clowning around and doing stuff like
this. Everything is fine.” When pressed about the surprising
similarity of this accident to several others that resulted in large
settlements, company officials refused comment.
In attempting to act out a long-held “Miami Vice” fantasy,
best friends Byron Willliams and Teddy Kosavac were shocked to learn

Forced to explain the events that led the rookie crane operator into
attempting a dredge-out from in the water versus the more traditional
land-based method, the water-logged operator suggested that instead
of being disciplined he should be commended for trying to approach
a situation differently. He is no longer with the firm.
Frustrated by the lack of free boat
launches, Nathan Fillion and his family attempted to find an alternate
solution. Mr. Fillion contends his only error was in attempting to
drive forward versus the more traditional practice of backing the
boat toward the water. He maintains that given a second chance, he
is almost certain he "could have made it.”
The Giant Mining Co. introduced a new initiative to decrease site
accidents. Red tape was used to outline the “no driving area”
for regular vehicles so as to not impede the movement of large mining
trucks. Unfortunately, the individual in charge of setting up the
red tape neglected to follow the new rules.
Forced to concede his truck
was not actually able to haul “any damn thing you put in it,”
driver Morris Lukatis is now faced with finding a large jack that
can “lift any damn thing it wants.” Good luck, Mr. Lukatis!
Math proved a problem
early Monday when a small ship was overloaded way beyond its capacity,

Convinced the horse
would leap safely over their car during a midnight game of auto-horse
chicken, brothers Roger and Rezko Rollins underestimated the attraction
that an open box of sugar cubes visible on their front seat would
hold for the sweet-toothed stallion.
Smiling for the camera and trying to put a happy face on a tough situation
is Barry Clarke, 42. The jovial outdoorsman
was dismayed to see his truck destroyed by falling timber but encouraged
that the small branch lodged in his anus was still visible, hopefully
making its safe removal more than likely.
Lawsuits were filed
today on behalf of Transport Shipyards and Grady Shipping against
container loader Walter Dovetree, a one-time world domino champion.
Details were limited but lawyers do admit a concern that Mr. Dovetree
had not yet gotten over his recent overtime loss to the Russian domino
champion, which was putting his on-the-job focus into question.
The captain of the “The Litunia” explained Thursday that
while the accident was serious, it came as no real surprise to him.
“I was a waiter for six years and I couldn’t balance anything
to save my life then either.” The ship's owners have let it
be known they are now actively seeking a new captain - ASAP.
Residents of a Mesa,
Arizona rest home received the shock of their lives when a large
meteorite crashed through their roof, crushing a blue recliner and
narrowly missing Ricky Frankin (pictured left) who is now claiming
ownership. “It landed in my damn chair. Why can’t I keep
After a hard-fought and often bitterly personal campaign against City
Hall to have new power poles installed on his street, Fred McCutcheon
finally succeeded. When asked how he felt about his victory, Fred
admitted that while he was pleased overall, his feelings were somewhat
mixed. “I may have won the battle but I think I lost the war.”
Realizing that his wife’s brother-in-law was not the qualified
he claimed to be came too late for ATV racer John Shepard. After losing
the race in question, Mr. Shepard confronted his relative about the
shocking equipment malfunction. Whatever immediate response was offered
must have been inadequate as Mr. Shepard is currently facing assault
charges for attempting to insert both ATV
tires inside Mr. Pritchard. Neither offered a comment at press time.
