More borscht? No thanks!

Sunday, April 30th, 2000

Dining at the American consulate in Poland this evening, midway through dinner with several high-ranking officials, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith was cordially offered a second bowl of borscht. “No, thank you,” he replied as politely as possible. Smith later revealed to the press that the mere smell of the soup had made him feel ill, and that when nobody was looking, he had poured the first bowl down his pants.

Rumors of GOF UGNÜT reunion false

Thursday, April 27th, 2000

Reacting to yesterday’s front page story run by a Dutch tabloid claiming the imminent reunion of GOF UGNÜT, Rev. Smith today dismissed the rumors as “hogwash”. He further denied any knowledge of an animatronic Jonathan Anthony Field built by U. N. scientists especially for this event. GÜ broke up in 1993 after Field died in an olympic-sized swimming pool of his own vomit.

Smith speaks at convention

Monday, April 17th, 2000

Following up his unforgettable “The End Is Near” fire and brimstone speech from the ‘96 Democratic convention in Chicago, Rev. Smith today spoke at the 2000 Democratic convention in Los Angeles, urging voters to forget about Gore’s pants and focus on the future. “For only by ignoring the needs of today,” declared Smith, “can we fully prepare for a tomorrow that may never come.”

Catholic church adopts 3rd testament

Sunday, April 16th, 2000

In a historic 1-0 vote, the Pope today voted to adopt The New Improved Testament into the church’s official Holy Bible. This third “testament” joins the ranks of the ancient Old Testament and the long-accepted New Testament as official word of GOD. This newest testament “completes the trilogy” according to the Pope. It is expected that other Christian churches will follow the Pope’s lead, adopting this work in weeks to come.

Smith constructs time machine

Friday, April 14th, 2000

After years of research and countless hours of round-the-clock construction, The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith has finally developed a working time machine.  This early model is not without its restrictions, explained Smith, as it can only travel forward in time not backward.  Nonetheless, its first test was an unqualified success.  “This morning I stepped into the machine and set it for an hour into the future.  After a grueling sixty-minute journey, I had arrived in the future,” smiled Smith, “exactly on time.”

April Fools!

Saturday, April 1st, 2000

Yesterday’s report of scary monsters attacking the Earth was really just a good old fashion April Fool’s Day joke. If you fell for it, well, count yourself among the untold thousands who got duped and took such (in hindsight pretty silly) actions as: emptying their bank accounts, fleeing to bomb shelters for days on end, and/or mass suicide.
