Firefighters love Butt Ball
Denver Post | Submitted by: allism
"In that variation, losers were forced to do dishes with their pants around their ankles with the rubber ball they used to throw at the chimes squeezed between their buttocks. To keep the ball sanitary, it was covered in a latex glove. Firefighters who refused to play the game weren't allowed to eat with their fellow employees."

Third graders drop trou
Kansas City Star | Submitted by: Deth Vegetable
"Parents and students at Pitcher met this morning with a state investigator and school district attorneys to discuss the alleged strip search over $5 of missing money... Parents have complained that children told them earlier this week that boys had to drop their pants to be searched by an adult male, while girls were searched by other girls." Next week school authorities will administer a group prostate exam for the C and D students.

Pamela Anderson has acknowledged she has Hepatightass--er, Hepatitis C. "Tommy has the disease and never disclosed it to me during our marriage". Well, that's what happens when you marry the drummer from Motley Crue, lady. But Tommy Lee denies having Hepatitis C (although his shlong does have its own zip code).

Still scared of Sammy the Bull
New York Daily News | Submitted by: Mr. Ramon
Mafia thugs were too afraid to go after Salvatore "Sammy The Bull" Gravano, the former hitman who pled guilty to 19 murders and received very little jailtime in exchange for testimony that took down boss John Gotti. "They never looked for Sammy," reputed Genovese associate Joseph Savarese told the undercover cop on the recordings..."You know why? He had 30 guys with him," Savarese said. "[Gravano's attitude was] 'Come look for me.' What do you you think, he was going to stand there and let them shoot him? He'd kill you."

More on Google and Scientology
Operating Thetan | Submitted by: Soylent
It turns out that Rotten's marvelous scoop about Google censoring the Church of Scientology's critics has developed into an even more scary situation: The CoS is using the DMCA, the poorly conceived Digital Millennium Copyright Act, to suppress criticism of its activities. They demanded Google remove a list of pages with alleged "copyright violations", a demand which the search engine complied with. But at least one of those pages is a criticism of the death of Lisa McPherson, and it's very clear that the criticism is not a page that Scientology can possibly claim copyright over. The first link below is a Usenet post about the DMCA yanking, and the second is a Wired article on the subject. Today, Google has reinstated at least some the pages in question. Also word is that a number of Google employees are rather upset at this whole story, and we don't blame them.
