Conscious of carb intake, sharks have switched to the Atkins all meat diet to avoid developing an unsightly "beer gill(y)".

New York loan sharks bring you curb side service. When asked about the new look, they responded saying:

"We make no bones about what we do, and we just want ta do what we can ta help wit da struggling economy. Dees buses are just our way of bringing da binness to da people."

"You'se guys like da new look?"

The police are still baffled why a rash of missing person reports have been filed along bus route M60.

Lanny decided to try a new advertising strategy for his tanning booth, deterrence. He reasoned that people would be skittish about going to the beach for their tan if only he could subliminally plant fear in them.

The "new GM" in it's reinventing of itself, after being bailed out financially by the government, and in the midst of the industry redesigning "retro" muscle cars like the new 'Cuda, Mustang, Camaro, Charger, is bringing back the Corvette Mako Shark.

Just look at those flowing lines and curves - as if the old 'Mako' never left us!

I guess they laid off too many designers.
