Idiotic Stuff

I may not be a complete idiot, but I do get a laugh out of idiotic stuff.  OK, I suppose you want some examples, right?  Well, here are a few that I found on the internet:

"Most lies about blondes are false."  - Headline 
     OK, does that mean that "most lies are true"?

"Golden, Ripe, Boneless Bananas, 39 Cents A Pound."  - Advertisement
     Dang, but I prefer mine on the bone.

"Fiction writing is great, you can make up almost anything."
- Ivana Trump, on her first novel
     And all this time I thought "fiction" was all true.

"Push this button in case anything happens."
-Elevator in Osaka, Japan
     Well now, that covers everything.  That button must be worn out by now, don't you think?

"Cars will not have Intercourse on this Bridge."
-Tokyo, Japan traffic sign
     I guess the cars should find a more private place. . .??

"Lack of brains hinders research."  - Headline
     You think??  Lack of brains hinders a lot of things, but in this case, they need sample brains to study.

"You know the one thing that's wrong with this country? Everyone gets a chance to have their fair say." - Bill Clinton
     And to think another Clinton is running for president??

"Deals work best when each side gets something it wants from the other." -Donald Trump
     And a view from the other side of the isle.

"And now the sequence of events in no particular order." 
- Dan Rather

"It's like deja-vu all over again." - Yogi Berra, Baseball player
     I always liked Yogi's sayings.

"It isn't pollution that is hurting the environment, it's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."  - Dan Quayle
     Well now that I know that impurities in air and water are not pollution.  I feel so much better now.


I think that is enough idiotic sayings for one day, or week, or month, or year, or. . .

Try to get this post out of your mind so that you can have a great day, you hear?


  1. It's possible to write down stupid Dan Quayle quotes all day long.

    One of my favorites is when he said he wished he'd paid more attention to Latin in school. That way he could talk to all those Latin Americans.

    1. He had a better speech writer than Milton Berle. A political job was the only thing he was qualified for (grin).

  2. For me it's a toss-up between the elevator sign in Japan, and Dan Quayle on the environment!

    1. Just proves that there are idiots all over this world.

    2. In all fairness, I think it is way easier to translate something from a European language into English, than it is from Japanese or Chinese, so that sign probably didn't say the same thing in Japanese.

  4. Made me laugh... and, I too love Yogi sayings!

  5. Thanks for the laughs. Read these to my hubby also. Made his day. Dan Quayle and Yogi rock!!

    1. I could have filled my blog with nothing but Dan Quayle and Yogi quotes, but didn't want to bore you.
