The News in Zingers

By Argus Hamilton

NBC News says a thirteen-year-old Girl Scout set up a table outside a San Francisco pot clinic and sold two hundred boxes of Girl Scout cookies in an hour. She's been asked to stay. If you've heard it a million times, the secret to retail success is location, location, location.

Dennis Rodman left rehab early Thursday and announced he will be returning to North Korea soon to see his good friend Kim Jong Un. His presence is needed there right away. Kim Jong Un needs help loading nuclear warheads and getting the cookies down from the top shelf.

Powerball Lottery officials say the winning ticket in Thursday's four hundred twenty-five million dollar lottery was bought in Oakland. The jackpot winner plans to do what every Californian would do with the millions. He's going back to Mexico and immigrating here legally.

Russia's Vladimir Putin presided over the Olympics closing ceremony Sunday. He's been nominated for a Nobel prize for his work in the field of clinical depression. Vladimir Putin can predict who will commit suicide in London the next week just by picking up the telephone.

Russian police horse-whipped the Russian female punk band Pussy Riot Monday as they sang a song making fun of Russia's president Vladimir Putin. The horsewhipping was their last warning. Next time they make fun of the president they get replaced by Jimmy Fallon.

Ukraine's government struck a deal with the democracy protestors Friday and agreed to hold new elections to decide if Ukraine will side with the West or Russia. Both sides together are sitting on a powderkeg. The Weather Channel says the five-day forecast for Kiev is two days.

Canada's men's hockey team won Friday a day after Canada's women's hockey team won the gold. They also won both golds in curling. The best part about Canada winning is that Baby Boomers get to watch Toronto's mayor celebrate and reminisce about the good old days.

North Dakota was rated the happiest U.S. state in an annual poll conducted by Gallup and Healthways. Another poll said North Dakota was the number-one state in beer consumption. In fact last Friday North Dakota got so drunk it woke up the next morning next to West Virginia.

Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky re-surfaced as a likely presidential campaign issue in three years Thursday. She lives in London, where she was recently kicked off a team of hospital volunteers. Apparently, the sign Stroke Patients means something else in England.

The White House announced a new Obamacare mandate requiring businesses to swear when they fire someone it's not because of Obamacare. Government force has nothing to do with it. And Osama bin Laden is at the bottom of the ocean because he really likes scuba diving.

Miami Dolphins coach Joe Philbin promised a better working environment in the locker room Thursday after an NFL report. The team was ripped for casually using racist, sexist and homophpobic language. From now on they can listen to rap music but they can't sing along.

China's generals said today's Chinese soldiers are too fat to fit into army tanks designed thirty years ago. That's news. If U.S. tanks could roll into North Korea, and the Chinese couldn't get into their tanks to oppose them, the Congressional Medal of honor could go to McDonald's.

Pasadena learned it will be a bicycle stop for thousands of racing cyclists in California's Amgen bicycle race the first Sunday in May. The old aristocratic town is appalled. Pasadena is the only city in Southern California that has Downton Abbey tailgate parties ten Sundays a year.
