The News in Zingers

http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | National Football League owners met on the phone Monday after the thirty-fifth NFL player was arrested since the Super Bowl. No one can explain it. It's gotten so bad that the New England Patriots just hired Robert Shapiro to be the team's defensive coordinator.

Walt Disney suffered a huge financial loss when The Lone Ranger bombed at the box office over July Fourth, losing the studio one hundred and fifty million dollars. How bad was it? Greek government bonds now have The Lone Ranger and Tonto's portrait on them.

Mexico was rated the world's fattest nation Friday in a study blaming it on a fast-food invasion from America. We sell Mexico Big Macs and Southern fried chicken and Mexico sells us marijuana and cocaine. You either believe in the Good Neighbor policy or you don't.

Gettysburg drew thousands of tourists for the re-enactment of the famous battle last week. Battle re-enactments are a uniquely American phenomenon. It's hard to picture a bunch of Frenchmen spending their weekends putting on old uniforms and surrendering.



NSA's Ed Snowden was given asylum in Venezuela on Tuesday. He left Hawaii, hid out in Hong Kong and Moscow, then vanished to South America. Ed Snowden has become the first guy ever to break up with a pole dancer without getting murdered execution-style.

KFC reportedly sued a fast-food joint in Bangkok called Hitler's Fried Chicken. It uses KFC's logo and superimposes Hitler's image over Colonel Sanders. The lawsuit forces civil right groups to choose between a German born in 1889 or a Kentuckian born in 1889.

Paula Deen fired her accountant Friday after more companies dropped Paula Deen's cookware following her admission of using of racist language in the past. The accountant called it Black Friday. What Paula Deen is calling it is probably best left to the imagination.

Russia's Vladimir Putin on Tuesday referred to the United States as Russia's partner in peace. It sounded a little spooky to Americans raised during the Cold War. This year marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Nobel Peace Prize which Josef Stalin won just for dying.

Pakistan issued a report admitting Osama bin Laden was able to hide openly in their country. In order to escape satellite detection and drone attack he wore a cowboy hat in the streets. He was confident the Bush administration would never kill one of their own.

House Republicans promised a border wall in their immigration bill Monday. It also stations thousands of agents on the border. They'll ask everyone coming across a math or science question and if they get it wrong we'll know they were born in the United States.

New York's disgraced former governor Eliot Spitzer announced Sunday he'll run for New York City comptroller. He got caught paying call girls four thousand dollars a session in a four-star hotel. If he's smart he'll tell that to every voter who needs welfare and housing.

President Obama decided to allow people to sign up for taxpayer-subsidized ObamaCare health coverage without having to show proof they have no other coverage. We've always done well under the honor system. At the voting polls during the early days of the Republic, each voter had to give his word as an Englishman that he was an American.
