She snuck into the town hall meeting. Pretending to be "Sandra Praline" from "Alas..Altlanta," she asked, "Hi, yeah, Senator, McCain, I, as well as many others in this great nation, along with my husband Todd..er.. Tom, yeah Toddertom, want to know how you got to be so gosh darn mavericky."

To which McCain responded, "You see my friend, the Straight Talk Express only has room for Mavericks. With the pork bellies and earmarks... I think I need a nap."

* Researchers have discovered cells taken from men's testicles seem as versatile as the stem cells derived from embryos. In an effort to avoid the ethical dilemma of embryonic stem cells, which are harvested in a process that destroys the embryos, scientist say this may be the solution.

Sources close to men everywhere say, "Over my dead sac!"

* MINNEAPOLIS — United Airlines announced it will lay off 414 mechanics.
