Up, Up, And Away

A Brazilian priest who decided it would be a good idea to float away with hundreds of helium balloons remains missing off the coast of South America. The Reverend Adelir Antonio de Carli decided to pull the stunt in an effort to set some sort of world's record, apparently for sheer idiocy.

It should be noted, however, that George Bush's decision to invade Iraq maintains a firm lock on the category.

The priest was making his attempt to raise funds for a "spiritual" rest stop for truckers.

Perhaps I'm being overly cynical after America's own experience with countless religious leaders over the the last few years, but personally I'd be a little suspicious of priests who like to hang out around truck stops.
