Hollywood relationship doesn't work out
LOS ANGELES, CA - Publicists have confirmed that the 18-month relationship between a celebrated film actor and a model/singer/perennial bitch is over. Even though their schedules allowed them to be in the same city for up to 40 days per year, the couple felt the relationship was too hard to maintain and agreed to see some of the thousands of other people they could be dating instead. Despite sharing such interests as money-grubbing, complaining, and yelling at maids, the pair cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. Although friends and associates have characterized both as highly egocentric, jealous and controlling people, they say the couple eventually found constant hounding by paparazzi and each other's bathroom habits too much to handle.

Daytime programming causes kitchen television to menstruate
DALLAS, TX - The kitchen television of the Anderson family in northeast Dallas began shedding its uterine lining during a scheduled afternoon viewing of Oprah, much to the dismay of some family members. "I was catching up on the dishes and watching my daily dose of O," said housewife Betty Anderson, "and a large pool of blood began collecting under the set." After cleaning up the mess and placing a diaper under the television to prevent further spillage, Anderson poured herself an iced tea, switched the set to Dr. Phil, and continued to vacuum the living room.
