The 8 Biggest Morons of 2008

1. WILL THE REAL DUMMY PLEASE STAND UP?
AT&T fired President John Walter after nine months, saying he lacked intellectual leadership. He received a $26 million severance package. Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.

2. WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS.
Police in Oakland , CA spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting , 'Please come out and give yourself up.'

3. WHAT WAS PLAN B???
An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts

4. THE GETAWAY!
A man walked into a Topeka , Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small , so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

5. DID I SAY THAT???
Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just couldn't control himself during a lineup. When detectives asked each man in the lineup to repeat the words: 'Give me all your money or I 'll shoot', the man shouted, 'that's not what I said!'

6. ARE WE COMMUNICATING???
A man spoke frantically into the phone: 'My wife is pregnant and her contractions are only two minutes apart'. 'Is this her first child?' the doctor asked. 'No!' the man shouted, 'This is her husband!'

7. NOT THE SHARPEST TOOL IN THE SHED!
In Modesto , CA , Steven Richard King was arrested for trying to hold up a Bank of America branch without a weapon. King used a thumb and a finger to simulate a gun. Unfortunately, he failed to keep his hand in his pocket. (hellooooooo)!

8. THE GRAND FINALE!!!
Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks, new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.
NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE.
Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

At least the trailer-boat would be easy to get in/out of the water!

The Australian PM Kevin Rudd would make a nice addition to that list. The top of that list.

Re: The 8 Biggest Morons of 2008

I think its mostly because he isnt the one bigdaddy voted for!

Must be doing something right as his popularity rating is sky high
Deserting voters return to restore Rudd ratings | The Australian
Approval rating over 70 compared to the opposition leader who is on 50 (not too shabby!)

Re: The 8 Biggest Morons of 2008

Why do most of the people on these lists make it year after year? I have heard the boat thing for over a decade.

To show how dated that list is:
ASNE - AT&T's Walter Quits After Boardroom Rebuff

Yep, 1998.

The idiot just gave away 10 billion from the budget surplus. A pre christmas "handout" ($1000 per child) that should have been spent on things the country needs. He's a tool. Of course his popularity spiked to an all time high, the masses are so stupid the can't see past next week when this little stunt is going to come back to bite us.

Heres a word for Rudd & Swan -"Infrastructure"

Infrastructure - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A much better investment for our country
