The Unknown Idiot of the Week

He stood outside a Dunkin Donuts yesterday during one of those walkathons to support breast cancer research, and had apparently done some walking himself. He wore the pink ribbon. His face was painted pink. He wore an American Cancer Society sweatshirt. He was smoking like a chimney. Politicians and pundits have a long way to go to top that.

I get the point you're trying to make, Sam. The guy paints his face to take part in "Making Strides Against Breast Cancer", an event I took part in 4 years ago, and yet, he's putting his lungs at risk of another form of cancer. He wore the paint to call attention to himself more than the cause. Kind of contradictory, don't you think?
