First place winner, hands down, is PETA, People For The Ethical
Treatment of Animals. After hearing of a Swiss restaurant that started using human
breast milk in their soups and sauces, PETA sent a letter to Ben & Jerry's Homemade
Inc., urging them to
start using breast milk
in their ice cream products. Yum.
Unfortunately, this idiot terrorist is unable to savor his award. As he was
mindlessly lobbing bombs and chanting Allah Akbar, he accidentally blew himself
up. (Warning: graphic video
) I wonder if he finally got those 72 virgins he
Father Earth, Algore, gets the top eco-idiot award
. Last week, he
urged young people to engage in civil disobedience to stop the construction of coal
plants. Translation: Break the law for Mother Earth.
Also, in the eco-idiots category: Bette Midler, who cancelled
her latest tour
in order to save the planet. The aging 62 year-old diva felt the
fleet of 14 trucks she used to ship her show from city to city caused too much pollution.
I'm sure low ticket sales had nothing to do with her decision.
A Michigan Court of Appeals deserves a place on our list for
ruling that a man
who pleaded no contest to sodomizing a sheep doesn't have to register
as a sex offender. Would someone please let PETA know.
VP candidate, Joe Biden
The winner of last week's top idiot
award is back. Democrat VP candidate Joe Biden stated on CBS Evening News
the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn't just talk
about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened.'"
Only problem is, FDR wasn't president during the 1929 crash, Herbert Hoover was.
Oh, and there was no television in 1929. Duh.
Former American Idol star Clay Aiken gets our Idiot Parent of the
Week award. Clay was pictured in People Magazine
holding his infant son as he
announced to the world that he is gay. Clay threw in some advice on parenting, stating,
"I cannot raise a child to lie or hide things." Another example of idiots transforming
bad behaviour into moral-self righteousness. Bravo.
Kudos to the idiot who managed to rack up nearly $2 million in traffic fines
before being caught by Brazilian
Last, but not least, is the idiot former judge who was disbarred by the Oklahoma Supreme Court
last Tuesday. His
crime? He actually got caught, and served prison time, for using a sexual device
while presiding over trials. Hey, maybe some lawyers just complained about how hard
it was to get a rise out of him. Ya think?
Thought for the week: To err is human, but being an idiot takes something special.
