Almost every day, we hear someone 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, someone will say something so incredibly stupid that it's impossible to overlook or ignore; something so 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 sets in that there is absolutely zero point in trying to explain anything at all to a person that is capable of saying something so magnificently dumb.
To pay tribute to these rare and unique moments of pure and unadulterated stupidity, people took to Reddit to share their most moronic memories. Here are 20 times that people heard someone say something so superbly stupid that they could only silently stare back in utter disbelief...
1. Some people don't know how babies work.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 thought babies were like kittens. -QuoyanHayel Oh dear, bless her heart.. her stupid, stupid heart.
2. Pip pip, cheerio!Worked in childcare when I was younger. We had a new student starting my class and her dad was from the UK. On her first day when [her] dad came to pick up, my assistant says 'She'll probably talk like you, right? Aren't accents hereditary? -lostintranslation14
Nope, accents are not hereditary, but stupidity often is.
