Stupidest Man on Internet Found
Thursday, July 13, 2006
(SNN The Internets) Last week, Pete Shinn read an article that incensed his sensibilities. He wrote a scathing blog entry about the article and the young woman quoted therein. Unfortunately for Shinn, the article and the woman were complete fabrications.
The article was printed in online magazine called "The Onion". The article's headline was "I'm Totally Psyched About This Abortion!" It was probably found among headlines such as "Kim Jong Il Unfolds Into Giant Robot" and "U.N. Orders Wonka To Submit To Chocolate Factory Inspections."
Being fooled by the Onion is quite a normal thing for someone with no sense of humor, like China. In 2002, Beijing's most popular newspaper republished an Onion story about the US Congress threatening to move unless given a Capitol building with a retractable dome. And who could forget the Onion's involvement in the tragic story which ended in Sen. Chuck Grassley beating Bob Crane to death.
This is where Shinn could have laughed off the embarrassing situation, showing that he was mentally competent. Unfortunately for Shinn, he did not stop there. Shinn claimed the entire post was merely a joke and he had gotten it all along. But even then, he did not stop there. During the next week hate mail and comments came to him by the thousands from both sides of the abortion debate. There was one thing these radically opposed groups could agree upon. Shinn's elevator did not reach the top floors. Shinn then claimed that all the attacks were coming from leftist "intellectuals" (his quotes) who still didn't get the joke.
Unfortunately, some of the messages sent to him were abusive. Also, a group of people were given Shinn's personal information. This is quite sad, as it belittles Shinn's accomplishment and maybe even makes people feel a little sympathy towards him. On the other hand, if thousands of people are calling you an idiot, maybe you need to look in the mirror.
Now is a difficult time for pro-lifers. There is an old saying that goes, "If you were in a room with Adolf Hitler and the Stupidest Man in the World and you had a gun with only one bullet, which would you kill?" At one time, this question was mere speculation. The concept of the stupidest person on the internet was unfathomable, and Hitler is (fingers crossed) dead. Now that Shinn has been identified and is one of their own, how can they answer? If you believe in the sanctity of life over all else, can you take someone's life for the betterment of the world. Of course, for those pro-lifers that shot or were complicit in the shooting of abortion doctors, the answer is probably a no brainer.
While Mr. Shinn claims malicious people posted his information online, we now have unconfirmed secondary confirmation that the "fucktard posted it himself".
Our previously uncomfirmed confirmation is now confirmed.
I looked the internets high and low, all five of them, and found Peter Shinns personal information is all over the place. I am really mad about this and have discovered the jerk who posted it here http://www.all.org/associates/mtc.htm name is .... Peter Shinn. Pete ought to sue, and I'm sure he will. Ouch.
