Ex-FIFA Exec Cites The Onion

This falls into the "You Just Cannot Make This Up" category, but an indicted former official of FIFA, Jack Warner, actually cited an article in The Onion as part of his defense for allegedly being corrupt. This is almost (but not quite) as stupid as citing The Other Dunwoody for anything.

But it may actually work. Mr. Warner heads the Independent and Liberal Party in Trinidad and politics has long been known as a safe haven for the Corrupt AND Stupid, but no one this stupid could actually pull off criminal activity in the cutthroat realm of The Real World. So Mr. Warner may just get off the hook with an "I'm Too Stupid" defense.
