Fred Phelps was undoubtedly the master of hate, but more importantly he was looked at as an entertainer, a comedian, a deranged buffoon. His antics cursed his family and made them the subject of ridicule.

Well, now that Fred's dead, someone has to fill his shoes, especially during Christmastime (which, BTW, Fred hated, of course).

A Facebook event called "The Quran Roast of D.C." had appeared earlier in the week. "This is the day america must stand up against islam and the islamic immigration which is illegally being implemented on our nation," the event's description said.

The organizers had invited more than 2,000 people to the event, and given Republican frontrunner Donald Trump's gross rhetoric against Muslims, and the crowds he's been drawing, it seemed possible that a good number of them might actually show up.

But the 70-plus confirmed attendees turned out to be more like six men, most of them dressed like bikers, and one middle-aged woman.

And the event was noticed more because of the people who - dressed as bananas for some other event - walked past, saying: "They can't agree on anything, but we all agree that bananas are tasty!"
