Dedicated Idiot

After the September 11th attacks, a lot of people felt compelled to do something. Weather it be donate money, give blood, join the military, or even... GROW A BEARD???

A Washington Teacher was apparently so compelled by the attacks, and had such a firm belief that we would hunt down and capture Osama bin Laden within a month or two, he decided to not cut his facial hair until bin Laden was in US custody.

I think it's fair to say that the man now has a rather long beard. His 5-year old beard ironically closely mimics the beards of Osama bin Laden and Saddam Hussein.

This man has some courage for doing something so stupid as to believe that our government would actually accomplish something. This poor guy has to explain to his students every year that he has a ridiculous beard because the government hasn't caught someone that is suppose to be our number one priority for making the world safer.

You sir are a dedicated idiot. I respect that. You made a promise and stuck to it, unlike some people who will remain nameless (here's a hint, he almost choked on a pretzel once).

Mr. Patriot, you can now count yourself among the many people that have been screwed over by the lackluster efforts of our government. Enjoy the beard, and maybe next time set a smaller goal like "I won't eat hamburgers until Osama is caught or until my next barbecue."
