President Clinton and Senator-elect Hillary Rodham Clinton signed a contract Friday to purchase a six-bedroom red brick colonial in Washington for $2.85 million. 

Clinton was pretty excited when Hillary told him they were buying a colonial house, since he's been reading about George Washington and all the affairs he had with the servants at HIS colonial estate.

The Clintons secured a $1.995 million mortgage to buy the property.

The mortgage approval was held up a bit when the loan officer had some trouble getting through to the White House to verify Clinton's place of employment.

I don't think that I'd be so quick to accept that honor if I were him. I wouldn't want that old lady swinging a sword anywhere near my head.

Boxer Mike Tyson is being sued by a topless dancer who claims that he injured her with a “violent and powerful” shove, at a club near downtown Los Angeles in May.

On the bright side, since the heavyweight division is so weak these days, that shove actually boosted Tyson's ranking.

Director Steven Spielberg has angered his neighbors by proposing to build a giant five-story horse-riding ring for his wife, actress and horse lover Kate Capshaw.

Five stories? He must really be trying to compensate for some other shortcomings…

The proposed 2.8-acre site where the construction is planned is in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Speilberg has hired former Brentwood resident OJ Simpson to try and “persuade” neighbors to go along with the plan.

CBS announced Monday that the second “Survivor” series, which is set in the Australian outback and premieres next month, will be shown on Thursdays at 8 p.m., putting it opposite NBC's high-rated comedy, “Friends.”

It sounds like NBC is a little worried about this; they've announced that Ross will have a new love interest on the show this January – Richard Hatch.

The Chernobyl nuclear power station in Ukraine has been officially closed down — 14 years after the plant exploded and sent a cloud of radioactive dust over Europe. 

It took them 14 years to shut that place down? People with that kind of quick response ability should have no trouble getting a job with the U.S. Postal Service.

The day after the U.S. Supreme Court made Democrat Al Gore's pursuit of a Florida vote recount nearly impossible, the vice president ordered his recount committee to suspend operations. 

The Gore campaign did not elaborate on why his recount committee was performing operations in the first place.

“He's both resolved and resigned,” one Gore adviser told CNN's John King. “He can do the math. He'll do what he has to do.”

Upon hearing this, George W. Bush wanted to know if Gore could teach HIM how to do the math.

Kevin Warwick, who heads the Cybernetics Department at the University of Reading in the United Kingdom, plans to take a step closer to becoming a cyborg by having a silicon chip implanted that will communicate with his brain next summer.

At first, Warwick's wife was pretty excited about his experiment, until she heard that the chip would be implanted in his ARM.

Warwick doesn't really like it when people say he's trying to become a cyborg – part human, part computer. He likes to think of it as becoming more “Al Gore”-like.
