As I've said before, maybe a global nuclear war wouldn't be such a bad thing after all.

I am not sure I could be that dumb if I tried. At least not without coming off as if I was trying to be an a$$.

Not sure how Spac from Star Wars felt but I would enjoy convincing that dumb hot chick of numerous lies, if you catch my drift . . .

It's like George Carlin said -- think of how dumb the average person is, and remember that half the population is dumber than that.

I can understand the New York one.

cgraves67: I can understand the New York one.


Yeah, some of them are sarcasm/cleverness (I mean, think of how dumb must some hilarious Fark posts would sound without the knowledge that they're made tongue-in-cheek), but most are Picard-worthy.

The celery one seems perfectly well worded to me. Unless they're making fun of the chosen answer.
The thermometer one is a joke; I haven't used one that didn't have a disposable sleeve in forever. Granted, it's a good way to get a reaction out of the photo subjects, which I imagine is what was intended.
Also, now I'm wondering if there's Siamese/conjoined twin fetish porn - Rule 34?

A shining example of the typical low information voter.

Nope. From what I've noticed at least a dozen or two Politics Tab regulars have you beat as far as 'dumbest comments' go, and I'm pretty sure 'dumbest MSPaint drawings' is a different article...

I'm pretty sure the Paris girl one was a joke.

I'm pretty sure half of those were jokes.

#6 must have been from a former coworker. He was talking about going to Mexico and I asked if he was going for Christmas. He said no as Christmas was an American Holiday. When I pointed out it was a Christian holiday he responded that he thought only Americans were Christians.

The green apple one is more sad than stupid.
 
2013-01-25 02:52:34 PM  
Wow... I was expecting stupid, but man. For the sake of humanity, I hope at least one or two of these is the result of some clever Ken M style trolling.

GAT_00: BATMANATEE: I'm pretty sure the Paris girl one was a joke.

I think some were jokes all around that didn't belong on the list, but the impression I got in others is that someone made a joke and nobody on the other end got it.

Either way, you gotta admit it's a pretty good list. I was expecting a typical Cracked list that would have 2 good ones and a bunch of filler. Otherwise, there are some definite keepers in there, such a s "Happy 2013 birthday America" and the whole "How can the olympics be 3000 years old when we're only to 2012?" thing. The "Chicago skyline" one made me LOL, also...

One time when my daughter was about 7, I told her to look up, there were ducks flying overhead. She looked at me skeptically and said "ducks can't fly". I guess you really only see them walking near lakes and such more than flying, but I thought that was so funny. She's actually a smart kid but that subject had never come up before.

Maybe not the dumbest thing ever said, but back when I was married my wife once asked me what color Robins' eggs were. I enjoyed answering that one...

I've had a sign in my office with that quote for years. There really is no limit to how stupid some people can be.
 
2013-01-25 06:40:37 PM  
WRONG! Not a single one of my quotes, and I post in the politics tab on a regular basis.

Mrs.Kritter suffered for years after absently mindedly asking "Why do they call them Evergreens?". Eventually I got my comeuppance by stupidly asking her "What city is NYPD Blue supposed to be based in?"

One night I was really drunk and posting on Fark and I had an epiphany.

I seriously believed for an hour or so (before I passed out) that you could harvest energy by putting devices at the bottom of the ocean that made electricity by using the immense water pressure.

I even debated some Farker about it. I honestly felt that I'd drunkenly solved the worlds energy problems.

*facepalm*

Okay I'm completely sober right now, and at the risk of becoming #36 on this list, that idea sounds like it has potential to me.

THIS one and the one from the bimbo wondering, since she was pregnant and her BF had been banging another girl, whether it was her own or the other chick's.

Overheard at the zoo:

"Oh, baby, look at the funny camel!"

"Which one, Mommy?"

"The... the... the CAMEL-colored one!"

I laughed so hard I dropped my ice cream.  Mom looked ready to kill me.

It should be: What percent of celery is water? They said, "What percent of water is celery?" The answer, "0%" is the correct answer. Also: they still do have rectal thermometers. I'm no nurse, so I don't know if those particular thermometers are rectal thermometers, but it's possible the person who pointed that out was being serious. Are YOU?

You're on Fark. There are tons of smart people around. Find yourself a damn mentor, dang!

only stupid thing about it is, she asked it on the wrong forum.
