Stupid of the Day Award 2

I'm sure most of you by now have seen Obama's fly swatting techniques thanks to the media ever so eloquently shoving it down people's throats. It's almost on every news website, and in more than one case, made the top 10 news items. I'm sure the Iranians with their "green revolution" are thrilled at the fact that they have to compete with a fly swatter for news coverage.

But, if you have been living under a rock for a week now, Obama swatted a fly and the Iranians are having a revolution.

However, I think that the story that is most newsworthy and that also deserves our Stupid of the Day Award is PETAs response to Obama's fly swatting capacities.

PETA, the People for Ethical Treatment of Animals, just came out with a statement condemning the fly swatting as "execution" and asking the President to be nicer to "the least sympathetic animals."

Followed by the following gem:
"In a nutshell, our position is this: He isn't the Buddha, he's a human being, and human beings have a long way to go before they think before they act."

And by bestowing on us such great philosophical knowledge, we here at BG et LZ, bestow on them our highly coveted Stupid of the Day Award.
