The Golden Poodle award goes to an unidentified woman in Peru. While a crowd is standing around the railroad tracks like lumps watching a poor dog trying to get back up to the owner, she jumped down from the platform and quietly rescued the dog.
As a reward she was threatened with up to 6 years in jail for “compromising the safety of the train tracks,” proving yet again that the law is an ass.
Even though I love him on screen and I might have thought about trying the same thing if I were rich and famous and traveled in private jets, the Lizard Brain award goes to Johnny Depp for smuggling his Yorkies into Australia.
That country has learned hard and painful lessons through the years and now has strict laws about what can be imported and what must be quarantined.
He got caught when local groomers shared pictures with the media. (See Lizard Brain above)
Johnny Depp has a public relations nightmare on his hands, a possible ten year prison sentence and a $265,000 fine hanging over his head for thinking that laws don’t apply to him.
The Neanderthal award goes to the sick and twisted anonymous trolls who sent threats to kill and eat Matisse, the winner of Britain’s Got Talent, because a stunt double was used for one trick.
The Do What I Say, Not What I Do award goes to John Kerry for allowing himself to be transported from Switzerland where he broke his leg to a Boston hospital in a military plane large enough to carry 100 troops and heavy war equipment.
