Fly on the Wall 

Quote of the Week

Over Labor Day weekend, President Bush made a less-than-perfect attempt to navigate a virtual Coast Guard cutter through a computer simulation of Baltimore harbor at the Seamans Training Center in Baltimore, Maryland.

"They made the boat rock a little bit," Bush told the AP. "I got slightly discombobulated."

Wrong Song

Memphis rap superstars Three 6 Mafia have asked for the dismissal of a lawsuit filed by Ramone Williams, who claims he was badly beaten at a concert when fans took the lyrics of the song "Let's Start a Riot" a little too seriously. Williams says he was knocked to the ground and repeatedly kicked, resulting in injuries including a fractured jaw. It's particularly unfortunate for Williams that the literal-minded fans weren't treated to a convincing performance of "Slob on My Knob."

Bear Meat
