Flint, Mich. – According to a ZOBGY poll released Tuesday, national public support for national legalization of methamphetamine hit an all-time high of four-tenths of a percent during June.

Little Rock, Ark. – Local meteorologist Kevin Burke revealed Wednesday that he is absolutely tickled by his track record for terrible weather predictions.
“It’s been more than thirty-five hundred straight days since my daily forecast was, by any stretch of the imagination, correct,” said Burke. “It’d be a whole lot longer if we didn’t actually get that freak August blizzard I threw a blind dart at in 2003,” he added.
Washington, D.C. – After a spate of recent scandals involving significant invasions of privacy by the U.S. government, the White House announced Tuesday that Administration officials are now mandated to hand-gesture air quotes whenever voicing the words “rights” and “citizens” during public speeches. The move appeared to align government policy with terminology, reflecting the federal government’s newfound disregard for the privacy rights of reporters, internet users, and just about everyone else.
