Piss Poor Sense of Humor
So, apparently some pastor is facing a five-year sentence for having just a downright ignorant sense of humor.
''Upon being questioned by airport security officers about the above episode, Gonzalez admitted having said that he had a bomb,'' a federal criminal complaint states, ''but insisted that he was just kidding.Seriously, can we start adding punitive time to sentences for abject stupidity? Would anyone worth their weight in salt have a problem with that? I mean, really, how friggin' stupid can you be?
''He claimed he had used the term 'bomb' as a way of referring to the Bible as having the ability to change one's life.''
