First Don West, one of George Zimmerman’s attorneys, tells the jury a lame ‘knock-knock’ joke and now his daughters have also helped hurt poor old George’s case. They posted a picture Friday on the photo-sharing site Instagram showing the two girls and their father each eating large ice cream cones.

The picture was captioned: "We beat stupidity celebration cones #zimmerman #defense #dadkilledit."

The caption appears to refer to Trayvon Martin’s girlfriend, Rachel Jeantel, who admitted during cross-examination about her telephone call with Martin that she couldn’t even read a letter she herself wrote about the shooting, saying “I don’t read cursive.”

The photo went viral with criticism of the caption’s ‘insensitive’ remark.

Fortunately for Zimmerman, during cross-examination two of the prosecution’s star witnesses seemed to verify that Martin was on top of Zimmerman, not the other way around. One of them testified that he saw Martin straddling Zimmerman in a way that looked like what is known in mixed-martial arts as 'ground and pound.'
