DUMB: Using your car as a deer hunting weapon is dumb... and apparently illegal. A Vermont man allegedly plowed his car into a deer decoy believing it was a real deer as a warden and two deputies watched from hiding places nearby. "The three were monitoring the stuffed deer as part of a routine sting operation to deter illegal hunting when they saw the Chevy stop and shine a light on the fake deer. They saw the vehicle drive onto the field and accelerate into the decoy, sending it flying about 30 feet, Danville game warden Dennis Amsden said." The hunter/driver's girlfriend and 4-month-old daughter were in the car at the time.
DUMBER: You know, somebody in law enforcement should really look into this whole terrorsism thing. Five years after 9/11, the CIA and FBI only have a few agents with even a limited proficiency in Arabic. None of 33 FBI agents with Arabic skills works in sections of the bureau related to international terrorism.
DUMBEST: Not sure which is worse, banning a Christmas wreath shaped like a peace symbol is dumb or not knowing the difference a peace symbol and a satanic symbol. The Loma Linda Homeowners Association in Pagosa Springs, CO, is fining Lisa Jensen $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath in the shape of a peace sign. The residents who complained interpreted the peace sign as anti-Iraq war protest or thought it was satanic symbol.
