The Five Dumbest Ideas of the Week

1. Andy Card, the former chief of staff to George W. Bush, got his nose out of joint this week over President Obama's penchant for working in his shirt sleeves. "I do expect him to send the message that people who are going to be in the Oval Office should treat the office with the respect that it has earned over history," Card said.

Then again, if Obama was really going to treat the office with the respect it earned during the Bush administration, he'd dress like this.

2. Speaking of wacky clowns, Bill Gates unleashed a swarm of mosquitoes on an unsuspecting audience this week while giving a speech on malaria. And here I thought he was trying to illustrate the joys of using Vista.

3. Another Sex and the City sequel? Isn't Sarah Jessica Parker getting a little long in the tutu for this kind of thing? Starring Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau as Carrie Bradshaw's new suitors.

4. How would you like your frosted flakes? With or without Michael Phelps? Rejected responses: the Special K dime bag and the Froot Loops Snack Pack, Dude.

5. Bet you didn't know that Dildo is the name of a town in Newfoundland, Canada. Are you up for a Dildo Island adventure tour? Have a bite at the Dildo Dory Grill. And my personal favorite: "Every summer Dildo sponsors Dildo Days . . . a community celebration." Wonder if this will be passe by then.
