The midget's the baby's daddy.

You know that saying "Words fail me"? When something is just so stupid/brazen/incredible that nothing additional really needs to be said? Here's an example: when I was in school, my friend Tom took a class not unlike your American "Shop" class, and his work was so bad that the teacher's only grade was the comment "Words fail me." When Tom eventually passed the class with a respectable B, he photocopied the teacher's comments and put them up around the school.

There's a couple of those "words fail me" instances in the R. Kelly trial, which is currently underway in Chicago.

Firstly, from the jury selection:

When the judge asked one prospective juror about his feelings regarding Kelly, he cryptically answered: "R. Kelly may have led the Taliban in attacking us on 9-11, but you can't prove it."
Next, and this one takes the prize for word-failage, "Midget" referred to in court, as Kelly trial takes a turn towards "Trapped in the Closet" plot. That is the title of the article.

I'm going to sleep. The world is broken.

Shop class was covered by woodwork, metalwork and the far more interesting sounding that it is "technical studies" back when I was at school.
