Twistin' the night away:
The movie "Twister" is such a hit that studio execs are planning other
disaster films, says Brad Halpern. "So far they've scheduled 'Hurricane,'
'Monsoon,' and 'Social Security.'"
"It's a real nightmare swarms of political consultants just spinning
and spinning" Jenny Church
"There's only one force greater than a tornado that packs ferocious
wind and can destroy average American homes in the blink of an eye.
It's called Congress." (Alan Ray)
In the news:
There was a major accident in Washington, says Jay Leno. "It seems
President Clinton was moving to the right and Bob Dole was moving to the
left and they collided. Almost knocked each other out."
Pat Buchanan described Republican discord as looking "like the final
scene of 'Hamlet.'" Says Church, "His latest campaign speech goes
'GOP or not GOP? That is the question.'"
Piccadilly Cirque du OJ: It's off to England for OJ Simpson for golf
and a visit to Oxford:
"After he teed off, a spectator shouted 'Bloody Good!' to which OJ replied
'Fuhrman planted it!'" (Paul Ecker)
"Oxford? What's he going there on, a Rogue's Scholarship?" (Russ Myers)
"The Queen is very excited. She's hoping to set him up with Diana."
"He kind of feels he has something in common with royalty especially Henry
VIII." (Bill Williams)
