If Stupidity Was A Crime

..these people would be locked up.

Supporters of David Hicks, the Adelaide man suspected of training with al-Qaeda, will celebrate his 28th birthday this week with balloons and fairy bread.

Members of the Fair Go For David group will hold a morning tea in First Fleet Park in Sydney and converge on the steps of Parliament House in Adelaide on Thursday for a birthday party for Hicks.

Group spokeswoman Kay Bilney today said fairy bread would be provided to symbolise the “hundreds of thousands” of Australians who had the right to a fair trial “unlike David and his fellow prisoners confined in Cuba”.

I like the idea of fairy bread – it aptly symbolizes this group’s life in la-la land. But why stop there? They could play “pin the tail on the donkey” to commemorate Hick’s time in Afghanistan, “hot potato” with a real-life bomb to symbolize Hick’s training with Al-Qaeda, and “music chairs” as a reminder of Hick’s facing the music in front of a military tribunal.
