The Five Dumbest Ideas of the Week

1. Yesterday we learned that the naming rights to the once-tallest building in the world have been acquired by George and Weezie Jefferson's next door neighbors.

2. Bernie Madoff wants you to know that he is terribly sorry he embezzled $173 billion - an amount exceeding the GDP of 139 countries - and that he won't do anything dishonest again. Unless, of course, the opportunity presents itself.

3. Hey, how about if we dismember some Barbie dolls and make them into jewelry?
Oh wait, it's been done.

4. Why I don't Twitter and you shouldn't either: Get a load of the tweets emitted yesterday by Bonnie Fuller, editor emeritus of Us Weekly, Glamour, Marie Claire, Cosmopolitan and the Star. I mean, with a track record like that you'd think her every thought was worth publishing.

5. Finally, we've got some good news and some bad news for you, Muntazer al-Zaidi. The bad news is that you're going to the slammer for three years for pitching your shoe at former President Bush. The good news? The Iraqi town of Tikrit has erected a monument to you - and boy, is it ever cute!


Look for Stephanie Goldberg's Five Dumbest Ideas of the Week in this space on Fridays.
