Right

I've still got my TI99.

Didn't TI lose it's butt with the 99 and pull out of the PC market?

Even better, if you scroll all the way down, is the bit about ILM building a puppet to replace Reagan.

"It's capable of 22 different facial expressision, which is twice the number the actual president is capable of!"

Never had a TI-99 myself. My cousin did and we used to play on it all the time. We had the far supieror Commodore 64 :)

I remember Hinkley shooting Reagan, but I don't remember him marrying Jody Foster. Did I miss that?

You have to read the Onion. It's a satyrical newspaper, the stories aren't real, just real funny.
The punk-rock band JFA (Jody Fosters Army) was named after this guy. He thought that by shooting Reagan he would win the attention of Jody and thus she would see how much he really loved her and want to be with him. Well, it didn't work. NO they were never married! I was in love with Jody Foster myself, well actually, I still am. She's so darn cute!

(Jody Foster and Olivia Newton-John!)
