The Knucklehead of the Day award

Today's winner is April Wormly. She gets the award for the following.

SAN ANTONIO - A woman who called in a bomb threat to an airport in an attempt to break up with her boyfriend was sentenced to two years in prison, the U.S. attorney's office said Wednesday.

April Wormly, 36, of Hobbs, N.M., also was ordered to pay $19,761 in restitution for phoning in the threat to San Antonio International Airport.

Federal prosecutors say she admitted calling the airport several times April 21 to claim there was a bomb aboard a Southwest Airlines flight bound for Dallas. Five of the 36 phone calls were recorded, prosecutors said in a statement.

The plane was diverted and its 120 passengers evacuated. No explosives were found.

Wormly told investigators she was trying to end a relationship with her boyfriend, who was a passenger on the flight. She believed he would leave her alone after finding out she made the calls, prosecutors said.

There would seem to be easier and less disruptive ways to break up with a boyfriend. That April Wormly couldn't think of any is just one reason I name her today's Knucklehead of the Day.

Hat tip Betsy who writes 'Well, she's probably right there. I hope she'll enjoy the lack of his attentions while she's in prison.'

There must be 50 ways...

Make a bomb threat, Brett,
Terrorize a plane, Elaine,
No need to coy Roy,
Just set yourself free.

Well, at least Neil Sedaka said it . . .

One thing is for sure, you will be broken up for the next two years.
