President Clinton pulled a muscle in his back this week. He was given painkillers by Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who suggested taking two legalzied drugs every six hours while listening to the complete works of Pink Floyd.
Clinton's doctors confirmed that the pain in the President's back was a charley horse. They said if the pain was any lower, they would have called it a Ross Perot.
Later, President Clinton said that, while he did put some painkillers in his mouth, he never swallowed.
And, during a Chanukkah celebration this week, President Clinton wanred children: "Shhh! Don't tell anyone I'm Jewish!"

Kevin Nealon: Now, with a final message to New York, the honorable Mayor David Dinkins. Mayor?
Mayor David Dinkins: Thank you, Mr. Nealon. Now, first of all, I'd like to wish everyone across this great nation a happy holiday, and also a prosperous New Year. Now, I know that this is a national TV show, so I'd like to ask everyone else to just be patient for a moment while I address my fellow New Yorkers. Since this is the last broadcast of "Saturday Night Live" of this calendar year, this is the last time I'll be able to speak to the city. Because after January 1st, 1994, I will no longer be Mayor of New York, because you voted me out of office. So I'd like to address the City of New York. Can you get closer?

I'll get you for this! You hear me? You messed with the wrong man! And don't think you can hide, 'cause you can't! Everywhere you go, I'll be waiting! Because I'm the King of the Night! Let me give you a little scenario: you'll be walking down the street alone, and suddenly you'll feel something behind you! Is it your imagination? Or is it me, David Dinkins, lurking in the shadows, dressed in my black, skintight jumpsuit? I may be old, but I move like a cat! And this cat bites, baby! [ hisses ] I've got a highly-trained sense of smell, and night vision like that of an owl! And powers beyond that of a mortal man! And I'll get you! So, have a happy New Year, New York! And, remember - January 1st, you are mine! Back to you, Mr. Nealon.

Kevin Nealon: Mayor Dinkins, ladies and gentlemen. Thank you, Mayor. Hey, I voted for the guy.
