Canada has beat out the USA and George Bush, winning the World Stupidity Award. A spokesman for the award ceremonies which were, coincidentally, held in Canada, said: "Canadians often feel we're in the shadow of the U.S., especially when it comes to stupidity, but now we're proving we're world class.”
Given how incredibly stupid the US government has been in the last year, compared to the Canadians, I think some not-so-challenging investigative reporting would reveal that this awards ceremony was fixed (and I don't mean "repaired").
Hosted by Lewis Black, the award ceremony did give George Bush his one win for Stupidest Statement of the Year when he said "They never stop thinking of ways of harming America, and neither do we.”
For a complete report about the award ceremonies, here's the article from the Globe and Mail, which is a pretty stupid name for a newspaper if you ask me.
By the way, I sometimes visit Canada and I can tell you it's kinda like going to a foreign country. They even speak a foreign language in Montreal.
