The Very Definition of Muggeridge's Law

Warren Bell writes that “According to Amnesty International’s website, today is United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture”. But it gets even better:

I thought I would poke around their website and see if there was a local rally against the beheadings in Iraq or the murder of Daniel Pearl. I didn’t find anything like that (shocking!), but there is this: “Please join Survivors of Torture, International in commemorating United Nations International Day in Support of Victims of Torture–Chocolate and Cabernet Reception to Follow”.

Bell writes, “I am not a good enough writer–I only wish I could make this up”. Congratulations Warren, you’ve just run smack into Muggeridge’s Law.

Update: This qualifies as well, of course.
