A Popsicle Award -

Here in Australia, Mirza Zukanovic was sentenced for 30 days in jail for contempt of court after blowing a bubble in court with bubble gum. The sentence was later overturned on appeal. Much comment is now being thrown around about the appropriateness of that sentence. Personally I think it was a 'no brainer.' If anybody does not know that they need to be on their best behaviour in court, then they are simply looking for trouble.

Things then took a really ridiculous turn with Zukanovic claiming that he is addicted to Hubba Bubba bubble gum, offering that up as his excuse.

So Mirza, mate, you get a very special honour - being awarded a Popsicle Award twice. First, for being dumb enough to even get yourself in that trouble in the first place, secondly for thinking we are all dumb enough to believe that addition story. Clearly he is another one that only has a Popsicle stick keeping his ears apart.
