Coeur d'Alene, Idaho:

A 23-year-old Post Falls woman charged with fraudulently obtaining
prescription drugs contends that one of her 3,817 personalities is actually
the responsible party.

Nichol Chastain is being held in the Kootenai County Jail on $5,000 bond
following her arrest last Wednesday.  In the past two months, she visited
nine doctors in Coeur d'Alene and Spokane, seeking morphine because of what
she said was an inoperable brain tumor, police records show.

Six doctors prescribed the drug without looking at her medical records.
But another physician became suspicious and called police.

Chastain blamed "Nikki," one of her personalities.

"I got to pick my own butt.  I picked my dream butt."

role in the upcoming movie "Waterworld"

New York, New York:

They are still so politically correct AND nutritionally sound.

Barnum's Animal Crackers is still offering an "Endangered Collection" until
August 13.  The summer menagerie features 16 endangered animals, including
the Asian elephant, giant panda, Komodo dragon, blue whale, jaguar and
mountain zebra.

Even the color of the box is "PC," green of course.  So is the string on
top.  (If you wondered why the box has a string: It was originally designed
as a Christmas ornament.)

Nabisco donates 5 cents per box purchased to the World Wildlife Fund to help
save animals and their habitats.  So far, the company is halfway to the goal
of $100,000.

Nabisco's spokeswoman, Ann Smith, says sales of the crackers may represent
the strongest sales period in Barnum's 93-year history.  It's also the first
time Barnum's has used all new animals shapes at one time.

A Kenyan member of Parliament has proposed that hyenas be allowed to
clean up hospitals that have no mortuaries by eating the bodies of the
unclaimed dead.
