Washington DC: People for Ethical Treatment of Idiots (PETI) staged a protest outside the White House and on Capitol Hill. PETI's membership roles also include morons and fools.
A PETI founder, Britney Dumbbunny, said "the organization was formed when idiots, morons and fools realized they were the last ignored group in the USA." After the civil rights movement of the 1960's had achieved success for African Americans, other advocacy groups were formed for Gays, transsexuals, fat people, welfare recipients, animals, environmentalists, people with no abilities, illegal immigrants, single dads and abortion (pro and anti).
PETI is demanding that the Obama Administration recognize this ignored voting constituency by passing legislation that bans moron jokes. A Million Moron March is also planned for later this summer on the mall in Washington DC.
Ms. Dumbbunny said "we are not just a political movement, but encompass all facets of stupidity." Think about the numbers of elected officials, baseball players and Hollywood stars who would now be protected; such prominent names as Bush, Gore, Carter, Clinton, Pelosi, Reid, Frank, Franken, Bonds, Rodriguez, Phelps, Streisand and Gibson.
A passerby Mr. Mark Twain, attempting to move through the shrieking picketers in front of the White House, noted "It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt."
