Barbara Coe Falls for Stupid Human Cell Phone Tricks!

It's always debatable whether California Coalition for Immigration Reform head Barbara Coe and her followers are senile, stupid or both. Forget their Know Nothing rants, and refry the following email Coe sent to followers.

Some guy sent the video below, which purports to show that cell phones can make popcorn kernels pop once they receive phone calls. "Wow!" the man wrote to Coe. "Well, this should answer the debate about if using cell phones can affect our brain tissues. Scary."

Coe forwarded his email and the link to her trolls. "Many thanks," she wrote. "I hope ALL of you will heed this WARNING!"

Only problem with the video? It's a big, fat hoax. But nice to see Coe fall for idiocies again and again, que no?
