Almost every day, we hear person say something, at least, remotely stupid. There are those lucky souls who are naturally aloof to the idiocy of others, and some who are acutely aware, yet choose to take an “ignorance is bliss” approach to morons. But then there’s the rest of us, who pretty much want to punch people on a daily basis.
But every blue moon, person will say something so incredibly stupid that it’s impossible to overlook or ignore; something really stupid it does not annoy or anger the cynic , nor does it cause the lighthearted to chuckle.
This sort of profound idiocy can only be met with silent awe, as one simultaneously questions their hearing and experiences a sense of gratitude for their own intact mind. This is often followed by yet more silence, as the final realization defines in that there is absolutely zero point in trying to explain anything at all to a person that is capable of saying something so splendidly dumb.
To pay tribute to these rare and unique moments of pure and unadulterated folly, people took to Reddit to share their most moronic memories. Here are 20 timesthat people heard person say something so wonderfully stupid that they could only mutely stare back in utter disbelief…
Once worked with a girl who asked me when babies first open their eyes. I said straight away after birth. She didn’t believe me because every time she saw her niece, her eyes were closed. I had to explain to her that babies sleep a lot. She supposed newborns were like kittens .
Oh dear, bless her heart .. her stupid, stupid heart.
Worked in childcare when I was younger. We had a new student starting my class and her papa was from the UK. On her first day when[ her] papa came to pick up, my assistant says’ She’ll probably talk like you, right? Aren’t accents hereditary ?
Nope, accents are not hereditary, but idiocy often is.
Once while driving on a rural road a friend( age 17) asked,” Why do all of the raccoons come to the side of the road to die ?
Here’s hoping that they drove straight-out to the Emergency Room to get this daughter a Cat scan. She probably wondered where all the kittens were though…
A city friend of mine got aroused seeing his first cow:’ Wow, appear a deer .’ It was a black-and-white Holstein cow, so not even close …
Hmmm, this friend was from the’ city’ were they? Seeing as though there’s no television or internet in the city, this ignorance attains perfect sense.
I got into an debate with a dame who insisted she was right about there being 10 months in a year .
I feel like I’ve lost a good two months this year, too. Where does the time run?
Do you have a dark sense of humor? If so, this next stupid human thinks you’re a racist…
I had a student who thought dark humor was about black people jokes .
My former sister in law was genuinely surprised to learn that suicide bombers blow themselves up along with their victims.
She asked,” Why do they do that? … to which we replied,’ Well, if they didn’t, they wouldn’t be suicide bombers, would they ?
It doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to most of us either, that’s for sure. Yet, we still manage to grasp the basic concept.
An old co-worker of mine wondered out loud why they didn’t celebrate the Fourth of July in England.
Another Redditor commented 😛 TAGEND
That would be interesting if for some reason they DID celebrate it .”
Then this Redditor put the cherry on this stupid sundae 😛 TAGEND Like parents whose child just left for college.’ This is OUR time now !
Well, after reading some of these comments, could we really blame them?
9. Hmm, defensive much?
I mentioned Wiki-leaks in a dialogue and someone said that I can’t believe everything on there because random people can edit the information . I said, I believe you’re referring to Wikipedia and she told me to fuck my ego lol .
I had a friend who thought hamburgers were made of literal ham .
Pretty sure that’s a SPAMburger. Totally different animal, literally.
While this guy clearly takes things literally, this next person doesn’t have the time of day, or the month for that matter…
I met an adult American female who didn’t know there were 365 days in a year and she was extremely offended by the implication that this was common knowledge and that they should have known that .
We like how this Redditor felt the need to clarify that this stupid sentence was said by an adult and American woman, only to drive home how inexcusably idiotic her statement genuinely was.
Old co-worker guessed Black Friday was a black holiday.
Outside the big cat exhibits at the zoo, I overheard a fellow in his 20 s vehemently insisting to his friends that” lions are the males and tigers are the females .
If person didn’t know the capital of the United State even though you live one hour long develop ride away from the national mall, David .
Thanks to this comment, you are now officially the internet’s male equivalent to CAROL. And that’s so not a good thing … People constantly have to tell her to shut up.
In history class on my first day of college, the girl next to me whispered,’ What was the civil rights movement ?’
We would say that maybe she was in the wrong classroom, but we’re pretty sure that there is no college course in which this basic common knowledge isn’t a prerequisite.
If you like soup, this next one’s for you…
This guy I work with didn’t know you were supposed to add a can of water to Campbell’s soup. He spent his whole life eating it condensed and guessed I was trying to play a prank on him when I told him he should add a can of water. He was genuinely surprised.
My SO recently learned that Pickles are just Cucumbers that are soaked in vinegar .
In college, I got into a huge argument with my entire philosophy class about how spiders are NOT bugs( they’re arachnids, people !) Not one person agreed with me. Not even the teacher. How is that physically possible ?? You learn that in like 1st grade. Sooooo that .
It’s true, there’s really not much you can convince a room full of philosophers of.
I’ve been in more than one argument about humans being mammals .
I have a educator who instead of saying “combined, ” says “ combinded ”
As for me, my best friend once explained to me how the created lane markers on the freeway, which apparently are called ” Botts’ dots”( who knew and more importantly WHY ), are like braille for blind people so that they know where the lanes are…
To which I asked her how the hell they are supposed to know when to stop? It’s a good thing that she is very blonde and very tall.
Share this with person you’ve heard say something truly, really stupid and still love anyway!
