    Bush wins World Stupidity Awards! (again)

    Bush wins big at Stupidity Awards

    NELSON WYATT
    CANADIAN PRESS

    MONTREAL — The November elections may still be ahead of him but U.S. President George W. Bush came out a big winner yesterday — at the World Stupidity Awards.

    Bush was a dominating presence at the second edition of the awards presented at the Just for Laughs comedy festival.

    Host Lewis Black, whose biting satire is a highlight of TV's The Daily Show, took pride in the recognition the United States received at the awards, saying: "we are the gold standard."

    Black said the awards "celebrate the pros" and "perfection in idiocy" because real stupidity is hard work.

    "It's easy to fall down a manhole, it's easy to put the candles too close to the drapes, it's easy to launch a military invasion of another country based on a few blurry satellite photos," he observed.

    "This year my people, we scaled the Everest of stupidity and we stand upon its peak."

    Bush took the Stupidest Man of the Year Award and for the second time in the history of the two-year-old awards won the Stupidity Award for Reckless Endangerment of the Planet.

    ...
    Congratulations Mr. Bush!

    PS: Just laugh about him in here, I really don't want to see serious discussions or political fights.

    He he.. I was actually there at the presentation.

    The festival was great, unfortunately I missed the live reading of Family Guy staring all the characters.

    Tickets were just to cheap.. the show sold out in like 20 minutes.

    Hahaha...i needed a good laugh.

    My favorite line:
    Bush took the Stupidest Man of the Year Award and for the second time in the history of the two-year-old awards won the Stupidity Award for Reckless Endangerment of the Planet.
