Laugh Lines

Taking the Fall: "Russia's space agency says the Mir space station will tumble from the sky in March. They say they will do all they can to keep it under control as it plunges to Earth. . . . It turns out that Mir is the Russian word for Nasdaq." (Argus Hamilton)

At Your Service: "Bill Clinton's brother, singer Roger Clinton, was arrested [recently] . . . for driving under the influence. On the news, they said it looks like he's going to get community service. No jail time but community service. . . . He's been ordered not to perform again as a service to his community." (Jay Leno)

Hard to Swallow: "Jane Fonda said she has overcome a quarter-century battle with bulimia. . . . Good for her. Maybe now she can help the countless thousands of Vietnam veterans who still throw up at the mention of her name." (Alex Kaseberg)

That Bites: "The 'Survivor' pig-slaughtering controversy continues. After an episode which showed tribal members killing a pig to eat, animal-rights groups slammed CBS for bringing out what one termed 'the worst in human behavior.' Producers have agreed to stop letting contestants eat anything resembling meat on the island. So on this week's menu: 7-Eleven hot dogs." (Patrick M. Rhody)
