Weekly Darwin 'dumbest of them all' awards for the week ending November 21, 2009
Again this week there is a plethora of contenders for the weekly award that confound thinking people into questioning evolution. These 'throw-backs', through their behaviors and/or statements can boggle the mind.
Here they are:
Brownsville Texas: Anthony Carrazco, 19, who tried to sell marijuana by going door to door doing it. Of course he happened upon the apartment of a police officer who arrested him and hauled him off to jail.
The bevy of 14 year old girls who spent over $72 million on the opening day of the latest vampire movie, their parents who paid for it and the media that reported it.
Bob Brinker (possibly genetically related to Glenn Beck), the so-called radio 'money' talk show host who on his 'starship money' (Yes, 'The Starship' is what he calls his show) show enjoys revisionist history when he speaks of how the recent economic meltdown occurred and strongly supports new Wall Street executive bonuses for the crooks who put the country in it's current mess.
The revelation there may be a Palin/Beck ticket in 2012 on the GOP side for the presidency of the USA.
Joe the plumber, speaking in Logan, Utah who is not supporting Sarah Palin for president in 2012, since she 'dissed' him in her book.
The New Jersey woman who left her life savings in a plastic bag at a religious shrine for 'safe-keeping' and went on vacation. She returned a week later, a groundsman had found the money and she got it back.
Queen of media saturational-hype, Sarah Palin, speaking about foreign policy on the Sean Hannity show and repeatedly confused Iran and Iraq in convoluted thought processing. After Hannity corrected her at break time, she returned and continued to do it.....4 more times. Sarah chirped, "we need to stop our imports to IRAQ so 'Armajad' understands Americans are just not going to stand for this stuff anymore (by gosh)".
The Palin 'fans' who stood for hours in bad weather waiting for a book store to open so they could buy 'going rogue', and every one else who paid good, hard earned money to buy it.
The burned out chandelier lite bulb, Sherry Johnston, Levi's mom, who in a plea deal was found guilty of an illegal drug sale (5 other charges were dismissed) and will do 3 years in prison in Alaska.
....and this weeks winner is:
Michael Prank, 40, from Lomita, California who upon his return from Australia was detained by customs agents at LAX after 13 live exotic lizards were found taped on his chest (2 monitor lizards and 11 skinks). Prank is in jail.
And that's it for another week, folks.
