Smith's secret plot to blow up San Francisco's Bay Bridge,
possibly killing thousands of commuters and causing
billions of dollars in damage was prevented today when
fractions of a second after he hatching the diabolical
plan, Smith thought better of it. "I'd been stuck
in bridge traffic for over an hour," explained
Smith, who so far has not been taken into custody, "when
this asshole cut me off for no reason. So then this
idea flashed through my mind to just blowup this whole
godforsaken traffic nightmare. But then, you know, I
realized it was just a stupid idea."

Old Testament strikes back
Testament site updates again today with seven new
illustrated stories from the Old Testament, from The

met with reactions across the country that ranged from
mild indifference to lukewarm acceptance. "This
will be a real shot in the arm for baseball," stated
Commissioner Lou Grenwall before nodding off. The two
remaining teams, the New York Yankees and the Chicago
Cubs will face each other 162 times next season and

he should have a bath." Smith did not realize what
