Default They walk among us....

Got this in an email....


NEW YORK - resident Kathy Evans brought humiliation to her friends and family when she set a new standard for stupidity with her appearance on the popular TV show, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."


Evans, a 32-year-old wife and mother of two, got stuck on the first question and proceeded to make what fans of the show are dubbing "the absolute worst use of lifelines ever."* After being introduced to the show's host Meredith Vieira, Evans was posed with a typically easy initial $100 question.


The question was:* "Which of the following is the largest?"


A) A Peanut
B) An Elephant
C) The Moon
D) Hey, who you calling large?


Immediately Mrs. Evans was struck with an all consuming panic as she did not readily know the answer.* "Hmm, oh boy, that's a toughie," said Evans, as Vieira did her level best to hide her disbelief.* "I mean, I'm sure I've heard of some of these things before, but I have no idea how large they would be."
Evans made the decision to use the first of her three lifelines, the 50/50.* Answers A and D were removed, leaving her to decide which was bigger, an elephant or the moon.* However, faced with an incredibly easy question, Evans still remained unsure.

"Oh! It removed the two I was leaning towards!" exclaimed Evans.* "Darn.* I think I better phone a friend."* Mrs. Evans asked to be connected with her friend Betsy, who is an office assistant.

"Hi Betsy!* How are you?* This is Kathy!* I'm on TV!" said Evans,* wasting the first seven seconds of her call.* "Okay, I got an important question.* Which of the following is the largest?* B, an elephant, or C, the moon.* 15 seconds Hun ..."


Betsy quickly replied that the answer was C, the moon.* Evans proceeded to argue with her friend for the remaining ten seconds.


"Betsy, are you sure?" said Evans.* "How sure are you?* Duh, that can't be it."
To everyone's astonishment, the moronic Evans declined to take her friend's advice.* "I just don't know if I can trust Betsy.* She's not all that bright.* So I think I'd like to ask the audience," said Evans.


Asked to vote on the correct answer, the audience returned 98% in favor of answer C, 'The Moon.'* Having used up all her lifelines, Evans then made the dumbest choice of her life.


"Wow, seems like everybody is against what I'm thinking," said the too-stupid-to-live Evans.* "But you know, sometimes you just got to go with your gut. So, let's see ...* I'm going to have to go with B, an elephant. Final answer."
Evans sat before the dumbfounded audience, the only one waiting with bated breath -- and was told that she was wrong, and that the answer was, in fact, C, 'The Moon.'



----------------------------------------------
Some guy bought a new fridge for his house.* To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home.* You want it, you take it."* For three days, the fridge sat there without anyone looking twice.* He eventually decided that people were too mistrustful of this deal.* So he changed the sign to read:* "Fridge for sale -- $50."


The next day someone stole it!

They walk among us!
----------------------------------------------
One day I was walking down the beach with
Some friends when someone shouted ... "Look at that dead bird!"* Someone looked up at the sky and said ... "where?"




They walk among us!

----------------------------------------------
While looking at a house, my brother asked the
Estate agent which direction was north because
He didn't want the sun waking him up every morning.* She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"* My brother explained that the sun rises in the east and has for sometime.* She shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with all that stuff."



They Walk Among Us!
----------------------------------------------


My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard an admin girl talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the beach.* She drove down in a convertible, but said she "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving."



They Walk Among Us!
---------------------------------------------



My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car which is designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped.* She keeps it in the car trunk.

They Walk Among Us!
----------------------------------------------
I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain.* My friend said, "Ouch! The chain must rip out every time she turns her head!"* I had to explain that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is turned.



They Walk Among Us!
----------------------------------------------




I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area and went to the lost luggage office and reported the loss.* The woman there smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and said I was in good hands.* "Now," she asked me, "Has your plane arrived yet?"* (I, too, work with professionals like this.)

They Walk Among Us!
----------------------------------------------
While working at a pizza parlor, I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go.* He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6.* He thought about it for some time, then said "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces."



They Walk Among Us!





And last, but not least:



*



Dumb as a Box of Rocks!




*


A VERY GOOD EXAMPLE OF THE KIND OF REPRESENTATION WE HAVE IN CONGRESS (TRUE STORY):



A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi happened to appear.* Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease."
Would you mind telling me, Doctor," she asked, "how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?""
Nothing is easier," he replied.* "You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble.* If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track."
"What sort of question?" asked Pelosi.
"Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?'''
Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, "You wouldn't happen to have another example would you?* I must confess I don't know much about history."


Sadly, not only do they walk among us, they vote and their vote equals ours ... and they also reproduce!

It's quite possible that being as ugly as she is nobody will breed with her.

No matter how ugly, fat or stupid she may be...There is some uglier, fatter, more stupid (or drunk) guy that will willingly inseminate her.

Stupidity by choice is the most prevalent debilitating malady suffered by the citizens of this country. Just look at who they elect for proof.
