CHICAGO - The highly reputable magazine Hate Illustrated has just announced that it is naming Mel "From Hell" Gibson and Dr. Laura "From Hell" Schlessinger as August's most hated man and woman in America.
Magazine Editor-in-Chief Allison Phoebe Papermilk, said that in the 17 years that she has been HI's editor-in-chief no man nor woman has ever received more votes than the August couple has.
Ms. Papermilk said that even Bernard "Bernie The Weasel" Madoff who ripped off $50 billion from hundreds of investors in his Ponzi Scheme did not receive as many votes as Gibson did.
And she added that not even Ann Coulter, who had been America's most hated woman for the past three years did not come anywhere close to Dr. LaLa, as she is known.
Papermilk did add that the man and woman who both came in second this year both managed to pull in quite a large number of votes but no where near the numbers that Melly and Dr. LaLa did.
When asked which man and woman came in second, Ms. Papermilk stated that the woman was Arizona Governor Jan Brewer and the man was Arizona Sheriff Joe "Pinky" Arpaio.
SIDENOTE: The editor-in-chief said that both Mel Gibson and Dr. Laura Schlessinger will receive the coveted Bronzed Middle Finger Award at a sit down dinner at Chicago's Al Capone and The Boys Restaurant.
