We Won! We Won!

Canada wins dumbest government at World Stupidity Awards; Bush wins one award - Yahoo! News

Here's a rundown of the winners:

-The Canadian government secured a surprise win Friday, beating out such luminaries as Iran, North Korea and the United States, for the dumbest government of the year at the World Stupidity Awards. The Gomery inquiry into the sponsorship scandal secured the award for Canada, said Spence.

-U.S. President George W. Bush may not have led the dumbest government, but he was honoured with the award for the Stupidest Statement of the Year after telling a news conference: "They never stop thinking of ways of harming America, and neither do we."

-Hotel heiress Paris Hilton won in two categories. She was named Stupidist Woman of the Year and was star of The Simple Life, which was named Stupidest Show of the Year.

-Conservative columnist Ann Coulter won the award as Stupidest Man of the Year. She beat out Bush, U.S. Senator John Kerry, NHL commissioner Gary Bettman and Players Association director Bob Goodenow, and former Ukrainian president Leonid Kuchma.

-Ashlee Simpson's lip-synching performance on Saturday Night Live for Dumbest Moment of the Year;

-Alien vs. Predator for Stupidest Movie of the Year;

-Crystal meth for Stupidest Trend of the Year;

-North Korean dictator Kim Jong for Stupidity Award for Reckless Endangerment of the Planet;

-Fox News for Media Outlet Which Has Best Furthered Ignorance;

-The World Stupidity Awards for Stupidest Award Show of the Year.

The World Stupidity Awards were decided by worldwide Internet voters.

The third annual awards were overseen by the Academy Recognizing Stupidity Everywhere (ARSE), which are "basically a bunch of morons," said Spence

My favorite had to be the Stupidest Man of the Year award winner - Ann Coulter. That's like two burns in one award! Classic...
