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.
