2nd Full Moon Award Goes to Mr. Idiot
July 3, 2012 Leave a comment
Yesterday, I was fully prepared to hand out the Full Moon Award to a fellow from Florida that assaulted 3 women with a 4 foot sword and a peanut butter sandwich, but this morning’s news provided an idiot of higher degree. Meet Mahiedine Mekhissi-Benabbad, a French runner.
Mekhissi-Benabbad (pronounced “Idiot” in English) celebrated his 3,000 meter race win in Helsinki, Finland by abusing the event’s mascot known as “Appy.” As it turns out, Appy is a 14 year old girl. Mr. Idiot knocked a gift bag out of her hands and shoved her around. Not very classy. One can only hope whatever sanctioning body exists for races of this type will permanently ban Mr. Idiot.
