"WorldCom long distance phone company has announced it wants to buy MCI for
$30 billion," says Jay Leno.  "Their strategy is to keep calling MCI

"The Pentagon announced plans to fire a laser at an aging satellite to test
the vulnerability of U.S. satellite systems.  Maybe they can aim a little
to the left and hit the Home Shopping Network." (Mark Wheeler)

without any women around so they can get down on their knees and pray and
weep openly.  Actually, a lot of guys do that.  I believe they're called
Chicago Cubs fans."

"NBC Sports President Dick Ebersol said he someday hopes to be able to
rehire Marv Albert...That is, of course, if NBC's entertainment division
