The Seinfeld Reunion Show, 2027
We can only marvel at this virtuosic stunt from comic Frank Caliendo: he flawlessly acts out a promo for a fictitious Seinfeld 2027 reunion show (with sly political overtones) by playing every single character himself. It goes a long way that he already looks like a clone of Jason Alexander and Newman. Wisely, he doesn't include Kramer's Laugh Factory material. (by Rich Bailey)

How very "UnChristian" of them:
Banned From Church
Reviving an ancient practice, churches are exposing sinners and shunning those who won't repent.

There once was the mayor called Rudy
Who went to Long Island for booty
The taxpayers paid
So that he could get laid
Did 9/11 come before Judy?
There once was a man named Obama
Who avoided political drama.
But when Clintonites spoke
Claiming King was a joke,
Obama responded, "Yo mama!"
Mr. Huck believes God’s the solution
And claims that there’s no Evolution.
It could be he’s right
God said “Let there be light,”
But he didn’t write the damn Constitution.
Here is the candidate Fred
And these are the words that he said
"I want Law and Order
so I'm closing the border
If you want me, I'll be in my bed."
