Moron of the Day: Burning Man

Remember that part in 40 Year Old Virgin where they kept saying "You know how I know you're gay?"

Well, I've got one. You know how I know this guy is retarded? He's a performance artist*:

A San Francisco performance artist was sentenced Friday to as many as four years in prison and ordered to pay restitution for the early torching last summer of the signature effigy of the counterculture Burning Man festival.

Paul Addis pleaded guilty in May to one felony count of injury to property stemming from the burning of the 40-foot icon on Aug. 28 — four days earlier than planned. He was ordered to pay $30,000 in restitution.

That is just too fucking awesome. A counterculture festival pressing charges against a guy for burning their giant anarchist effigy too early. Once again, the rebels have turned into the man, keeping honest, hard-working** performance artists down.

* - Seriously, can't we just be honest and use the term "unemployed, homeless person" instead of performance artists? Euphamisms are beneath us.

** - While I have no doubt that peeing in alleys, sleeping under newspapers and painting your face like a luchador is 'hard work,' I'm not going to give him too much credit on the honesty because the mentally challenged are typically fonts of truth and whatever the opposite of subtlety is.

As is my wont, Douchey McShitstain meets his 'maker' in the extended entry.
