Top Idiots Of The Week
November 19, 2008
And The Winner Is:
In a historic first, the winner of this week's Top Idiot Award is an animal. In a clear case of statue-tory rape, this moose obviously confused life and art. He got away with this indiscretion after issuing a public apology and agreeing to attend sensitivity training. Personally, I think he got off easy because he was a FOB. (friend of Bill:)
13 year-old German schoolboy, Dennis Bueller comes in a close second. He learned the hard way that one should never play with a cigarette ligher on the toilet - especially after spraying the room with air freshener.
A husband and wife had a suicide pact. The husband backed out. His wife didn't. Her body was then left hanging in their house for eight weeks. I guess he just got used to her hanging around.
Two drunk drivers crashed into each other. Who says there's no justice?
PETA makes our list once again. They're planning to stage a nude protest to discourage locals from attending an upcoming Ringling Brothers Circus show at the Houma-Terrebonne Civic Center. Hey, it would discourage me...
Caution: Idiots are not just stupid - they're dangerous too. A father was drinking double shots of vodka while cleaning his gun. Oops, he accidentaly shot to death his 6 year-old daughter.
Most Idiotic Statements:
Chris Matthews on Obama: "You can't make fun of this guy. He's clean as a whistle"
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenneger actually blamed California's wildfires on global warming. Huh?
NBC's Meredith Viera helped kick off Green Week by stating that "oceans could rise by 200 feet."
Fox News anchor Shepard Smith actually called suggestions of bias towards Obama in the mainstream media "preposterous". Ah, Shep...
First place, hands down, goes to the idiotic bureaucrats in Attleboro, Mass. In a letter they paid 42 cents to mail, city officials warned they'll place a lien on a blind 74-year-old's house unless she coughs up a penny by Dec. 10. Aargh.
Tied for first place are these 12 Obama voters. They actually allowed themselves to be videotaped after the election. Their scary, absolute ignorance of our political system is now captured for all eternity.
In a close second are the 7 out of 10 people who actually believe Obama can fix the economy.
More bureaucrats, this time in England: School bureaucrats decided that children as young as five will now have the legal right to tell teachers how they should be taught and disciplined for bad behavior.
Speaking of schools: School officials in a tiny Vermont elementary school win honorable mention. They have blocked the pledge of allegiance from classrooms amid concerns that it holds nonparticipating children up to scorn.
So many idiots, so little space.
