Dumb people in the news (part 3)

Honestly I think some of these are PR stunts, the journalist had no inspiration so he hired people to do something stupid or people are indeed idiots... Which if you think about it, the later seems more plausible... Again a special thanks to for the news!

"George Washington Chicken Nugget: Bite-Size Shaped Like First President Sells For $8,100"

DAKOTA CITY, Neb. — Call it McWashington.
A Nebraska woman has sold a three-year-old McDonald's Chicken McNugget that resembles President George Washington for $8,100 on eBay.
Rebekah Speight of Dakota City sold the McNugget to raise money for a drive to raise $15,000 and send 50 children to summer church camp in Sioux City.
Speight says her children didn't eat the chicken during a McDonald's visit three years ago. She was about to toss it, then spotted Washington's resemblance. Speight stashed the McNugget in her freezer.
eBay had temporarily taken down the auction last month because it violated rules regulating expired food.
She later received an email saying the site was "willing to make exceptions to help your cause."

The resemblance is unmistakable... Ehm... This nugget looks exactly like .. a nugget! True Story. If not for the drive to raise the money I 'd empty my hatred to the generous people... *cough* *cough* that made this huge contribution to humankind... I mean I've never seen someone look so intensely at their food in case it looks like a celebrity... I am of to buy a hamburger... If I bite it right it might look like Lady Gaga and sell it, to make some bucks for the "Fight Stupidity LLC" I wanna create. Don't tell me it's not a noble cause?

"Dion Anthony, Memphis Cop, Allegedly Broadcast Sex Over Radio"

Here is some advice from Memphis, Tenn., Sergeant Karen Rudolph that might have saved a police officer accused of having sex in his squad car a bit of trouble:
"Anytime you communicate via a handheld or console microphone you want to remain professional."
That's what Rudolph told MyFox Memphis when asked about officer Dion Anthony, who is accused of broadcasting his on-duty sexual encounter over his police radio.
According to the station, not only could all on-duty officers hear what Anthony was allegedly doing, but so could anyone with a police scanner.
Anthony has been suspended and the audio recording has not been released.
ABC 24 in Memphis got reaction to the burgeoning scandal from local residents.
"I guess that's what they call working overtime,” quipped resident Denett Davis.
Never one to be out-snarked, Perez Hilton gave his take on his website:
"Hopefully he protected himself while serving his partner!" Hilton wrote.
Bro, seriously if you are about to have sex in the house do you leave the windows open? Do you call everyone and leave the phone open? Do you open your webcam so everyone can watch? (At least get paid to do it...). I was making fun of the dumb criminals in another post but to be fair some cops are just as stupid (every profession has them...). At least he is not as bad as this fellow:
Having sex with cows? Seriously? And then you *wink* *wink* milk them? Bring some more nuggets to buy this man a prostitute or a girlfriend... I can imagine him in a steak house crying and eating his girlfriend... OK, I will stop because I have way too many black humor jokes...

"Vibrating Tattoo Patented By Nokia Alerts Users When Phone Rings"

Finnish mobile phone developer Nokia has filed for a patent on a magnetic, vibrating tattoo or badge that alerts users when their phones are ringing.
According to the official patent filing, the apparatus would be able to detect a magnetic field and transfer a "perceivable stimulus" to users. The device could notify people about an incoming call, text or dead battery.
The Wall Street Journal obtained a copy of the patent application, which lists four inventors and a file date of Sept. 13, 2011.
The device could take different forms, including a visible tattoo, label or badge, that could be set to emit different vibration patterns -- much like customized ringtones -- to distinguish between different callers, according to the report.

Are people stupid? With so many magnetic fields your body will vibrate all the time... Not to mention the dudes with full body tattoos will go haywire... BUT I have something to suggest. And I want the patent for this. Tattoo on the clitoris or the penis or the nipples... With all the cell phones all over the place you'd break the world record on orgasms in a day, lifetime etc... Thank me later Nokia.
