Top Idiots Of The Week|
January 18, 2009
AND THE WINNER IS:
These animal rights idiots deserve this week's prize for having the courage, yes,
raw courage to publicly strip and sit in a cage in order to make a point about,
well, we're not sure. I think their protest had something to do with naked animals.
Caution: This video
is not a pretty sight.
Tied for first place is an 'international medical organization.' This group has
actually recommended that children as young as 12 who question their sexual identity
(who doesn't?) be given drugs that block the onset of puberty
. Why? In order to give the little
darlings the time to decide which sex they want to be. I kid you not.
Passions flared a bit
for an excitable Australian woman. She has been accused of
setting her husband's genitals on fire because she thought he was having an affair.
She has been charged with murder.
Speaking of passions: A Dublin man got so worked up during a protest of, what else,
Israel's assault on the bomb throwers in Gaza, that he set himself on fire
. He couldn't even do that right,
as onlookers managed to save his sorry ass.
A 36-year-old California man was arrested and booked in the Monterey County jail
after allegedly selling his daughter for marriage
and then calling police
to complain that her buyer had not paid off his debt.
A primary school in the UK
earned a place on this list by
banning the use of the word "school" in its title. Apparently its connotations were
too negative. Aargh.
State Senator Lisa Gladden
MOST IDIOTIC STATEMENTS:
Maryland State Senator Lisa Gladden wins this week's Most Idiotic Statement Of The
Week award for her gushing statement
, caught on tape, to a political reporter,
“It doesn’t matter if the state of Maryland is broke as long as Barack Obama is
going to be President of the United States – this is great!” Maybe the real idiots
are the ones that elected her.
In a close runner up for most idiotic statement is a
doozy made by NASA's James Hansen
. He flatly stated that "Barack Obama has
only four years to save the world." Words fail...
A naked burglar encountered an 88 year-old woman who managed to fend him off
by giving his privates a big squeeze.
A man and his girlfriend had lunch at a food court in Fayetteville, N.C., then left
a tote bag filled with marijuana, crack and cash under the table. It was gone when
they returned, so they went to mall security
to reclaim it and were promptly
A bank robber solved
his own crime
for authorities last week, leaving a pay stub with his name
and address at the scene, according to the Chicago office of the FBI.
Not all criminals are stupid, as evidenced by a Canadian inmate who got a court
award him $12K
because he got stabbed in the butt with a plastic weapon
after a dispute over telephone use. Think he'll still call collect?
JUST PLAIN WEIRD:
A spinster who obsessively hoarded clothes died in her home
after a mountain of suitcases fell on her,
burying her alive. I think there's a moral to this story.
A Detroit defense lawyer received a letter from the IRS
in November that said he owed the
IRS money — five cents. He was warned that he should pay "to avoid additional penalty
and/or interest," He then received a second letter telling him the government owes
him money — four cents. He was told he would have to request the refund. Hey, maybe
things will improve if we appoint a tax cheat to head the IRS. Ya think?
So many idiots, so little space. Till next week..
