    The slap heard around the world

    From: http://www.cnn.com/2004/LAW/03/25/si....ap/index.html
    PHOENIX, Arizona (AP) -- Exercise guru Richard Simmons allegedly slapped a man who made a sarcastic remark about one of his videos, police said.

    Simmons, known for his "Sweatin' to the Oldies" series of exercise videos set to songs from the 1950s and '60s, was cited for misdemeanor assault.

    A fellow passenger recognized Simmons on Wednesday night at Phoenix's Sky Harbor International Airport as he was waiting for a flight to Los Angeles, police said.

    The man "made the off-hand comment, 'Hey, everybody. It's Richard Simmons. Let's drop our bags and rock to the '50s,"' said Phoenix police Sgt. Tom Osborne. "Mr. Simmons took exception to it and walked over to the other passenger and apparently slapped him in the face."

    The passenger, whose identity wasn't immediately available, wasn't injured but told police that he intended to file charges against Simmons, 55.

    Osborne said Simmons was cited for misdemeanor assault and permitted to board his flight.

    I'm sure if my company ever went bancrupt, Dilbert would cease to exist. They have a webcam in our rooms, there is no other possible explanation for hitting the nail on the head with every single strip.

    If you haven't read Dilbert until now, head straight to www.dilbert.com or go out and buy the books

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
