It's a sad fact of life that the world is filled with people who are less than bright. Not you or I, of course, fair reader, but those others? They're flat out dumb. Stupidity is everywhere, folks, from everyday people to the highest political offices in the land. Actually, you could make a case for "highest political offices" being stupid's most successful breeding ground these days. But I digress.
One of the biggest drawbacks of the Internet, besides food porn and Real Housewives updates is that people's dumb mistakes are constantly funneled to the internet's front page on a daily basis. Of course it makes sense. People like to feel superior to others (you know you do, don't deny it), so news outlets of varying integrity are constantly on the lookout for material that will pump up their readers' self-worth. (Not us, fair reader, because we know you're too smart to fall for tricks like that.) As a result, we're inundated each week with tales of the escapades of the world's biggest dummies.
Seriously, they're everywhere … and you need to stay vigilant. It's in that vein that we've rounded up this week's ten stupidest people and put them on display, so you can keep your eye trained for idiocy in your everyday life. We've also included some of Instagram's cutest kitties to help soften the blow of all that dumb.
Enjoy! And, please, please don't try any of this at home. If you do, though, take lots of pictures and send them to me so I can put you on a future installment of one of these stupidity roundups.
