The US Attorney has released former Subway spokesman Jared Fogle’s pedophilic texts, one of which involves telling an associate he will “pay (him) big for a 14 or 15-year-old.”  “Jared was clearly talking about a delicious Subway sub,” Fogle’s lawyer Gary Schermerhorn told reporters on Wednesday.  “Subs, subs, subs- everybody loves subs!  Jared really liked old subs – agedas he called them.  He always liked things a little on the old side- never young.  That’s gross.  Who wants a young child- I mean, sandwich?  Who’s hungry?”

Scientists from California’s HRL Laboratories may have discovered a way to “upload knowledge” to the human brain.  “We’re hoping to make this technology widely accessible by early November,” HRL’s Dr. Matthew Phillips said in a statement, “before it’s too late.”

As some of you have pointed out, there have been some inexcusable errors in recent memos.  I incorrectly stated the Golden State Warriors had beaten the Minnesota Timberwolves to reach 74 wins, when in fact they beat the Memphis Grizzlies.  And… gasp … there was a TYPO.  To you tireless workers who brought these gaffes to my attention, I say: thank you… for making it easier to fire you!  Get the hell out of here you nitpicking busybodies!  GOD it feels good to make 440 times as much as you people.
