THE FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR DEPT.
UH-OH SILVER! DEPT.
Disney’s big summer movie, The Lone Ranger, opened last week — and although it got savaged by the critics, it made up for those poor reviews by getting absolutely demolished at the box office by Despicable Me.

DEEN OF ADMISSIONS DEPT.

BRONX BUMMER DEPT.
BAD TO THE DRONE DEPT.
REESE IN PIECES DEPT.
MAGNUM FARCE DEPT.
Yesterday, spineless Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid refused to put up for a vote a bill that would ban assault weapons.
