(I'm tired today, so here's another rerun from 2012--with all new cartoons!!)

Are you familiar with the comedian, Bill Engvall?  He thinks--& I agree--that all stupid people should wear a sign saying just that so you wouldn't waste your (or their) time. 

This is his reasoning:

Stupid people should have to wear signs that just say, "I'm Stupid". That way you wouldn't rely on them, would you? You wouldn't ask them anything. It would be like, "Excuse me...oops, never mind. I didn't see your sign."

Some of his examples of people in no imminent danger of winning the Nobel Prize:

A couple of months ago I went fishing with a buddy of mine. We pulled his boat into the dock, I lifted up this big 'ol stringer of bass and this idiot on the dock goes, "Hey, y'all catch all them fish?" "Nope--talked 'em into giving up. Here's your sign."

I was watching one of those animal shows on the Discovery Channel. There was a guy inventing a shark bite suit. And there's only one way to test it. "Alright Jimmy, you got that shark suit on, it looks good... They want you to jump into this pool of sharks, and you tell us if it hurts when they bite you." "Well, all right, but hold my sign. I don't wanna lose it."

Last time I had a flat tire, I pulled my truck into one of those side-of-the-road gas stations. The attendant walks out, looks at my truck, looks at me, and asked, "Tire go flat?" I couldn't resist so I said, "Nope. I was driving around and those other three just swelled right up on me. Here's your sign."

Then there was the guy with the 18-wheeler... Wouldn't ya know he misjudged the height of the overpass... The truck got stuck and he couldn't get it out no matter how he tried. He radioed in for help and eventually a local cop shows up to take the report. He went through his basic questioning.. ok.. no problem. The guy thought, "He can't say it, he's a paid official..." He thought sure he was clear of needing a sign... until the cop asked "So.. is your truck stuck?" The guy couldn't help himself! He looked at the cop, looked back at the rig and then back at the cop and said "No I was delivering this overpass and my truck stalled... here's your sign."

One day I locked my keys in my car and as I was standing there with a coat hanger halfway through the top of my window, a guy walks up and says, "Lock yer keys in the car?" Without missing a beat I said, "Nope, Just washed it and was hanging it up to dry...here's your sign."

Some people are so stupid--& so litigious--that manufacturers have been forced to put equally stupid disclaimers on their products.  Here are some actual label instructions on
 consumer goods (& I cut the list way down!):

Stupid people should be VERY careful when making repairs:

"Basically, a tool is an object that enables you to take advantage of the laws of physics and mechanics in such a way that you can seriously injure yourself."--Dave Barry

Some people may require more than a disclaimer.  
They need more SPECIFIC  instructions!

I got a new stick deodorant today.  The instructions said: Remove cap and push up bottom.  I can barely walk, but whenever I fart the room smells lovely!! 

I'm not sure that this belongs here, but he WAS stupid for honking at her!  A lady was videotaping her son riding a skate board when her attention switched to an old woman trying to cross the street.  You can hear the lady who is doing the taping giggling as she records the event.  The video is a quick one…but you'll probably watch it more than once. Aren't air bags great?

This video from TED is about 10 minutes long,
but it teaches you he difference between the male & the female brain:

Dealing with morons is like trying to teach hieroglyphics to a beagle----fishducky



  1. I love that mature lady. I now have a new hero.

  2. ay-yi-yi, I have to go edit one of my scheduled Whimsical Wednesdays; I have the old lady deodorant one there.
    That Daffy Duck hits the nail on the head quite often.
    Okay, I'll go read the rest of the post now...

  3. P.S. Love Bill Engvall; I have the 2003 Blue Collar Comedy Tour on dvd, with Bill Engvall, Jeff Foxworthy, Ron White and Larry, the Cable Guy. I probably watch it more often than I should.

  4. Because SOME OF US DONT KNOW!.

  5. I assume the guy stuck under the bridge and the guy who locked his keys in the car have spare signs.

  6. That old gal wanting to cross the road is priceless. I'll bet that guy learned his lesson for the day: Don't mess with old broads!

  7. Reminds me of a joke I heard when I was a little kid:

    A big moron and a little moron were standing on top of a building. The big moron fell off but the little moron didn't.


    Because the little moron was a little more on!

    1. That joke certainly fits in the stupid category!!

  8. Aww, I miss the Blue Collar Tour. Bill and Jeff were my favorites. The old gal and the air bag are a hoot. Gotta love her. Wonder how he explained that to his insurance co?

    1. If that were me, I probably wouldn't have turned in a claim!!

  9. Heh, heh! The non-oral toilet brush. A better tip would be, "Close mouth while using." I found that out the hard way.


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
