Can We Talk About This Idiot Trend?

Errbody in this place gettin’ stupid. For real, though.

I honestly heard someone ask someone else why people kept talking about this cereal war. Because Obama is really concerned about chemical weapons in cereal. Tell those Mini Wheats to knock it off!

The other day in class, immediately after my professor explained that we were collecting images for an assignment, another student asked, “So we’re collecting…images?” and I died.

I’ve talked about this before but I will never forget it: another student wrote “I’m really good at socialism” in a list of strengths during orientation. Socialism: the art of being social…and common management of the economy.

Another student tried to convince us in class that we should allow people to forego giving their children vaccines because “they just don’t believe in it, and it wouldn’t be fair for us to make them.” That’s like not believing in covering up your sneezes, so you snot all over someone’s face and call it good. It’s all about what makes me feel good, right? Not what might infect hundreds of children with whooping cough.

At Bumbershoot, three drunk dudes (who ended up being Death Cab’s number 1, 2, and 3 fans) kept accosting this poor family during the concert, yelling that “They’re the best songwriters ever!” while the family’s 10 year old son probably peed himself.

My math professor went over a word problem for thirty minutes because one person in the class (who talked like he had one brain cell clinging for life) didn’t get it. Or just go to office hours. It’s not that hard.

I’m sorry I’m so sassy tonight! But seriously, people, educate yourselves. We have a crazy cereal war to worry about.

  1. “Really good at socialism” …that just kills me.

    I’m also not a fan of people who monopolize lecture time. Not that I actually care because most of the time I’m not paying attention — it’s more because I don’t want to hear their voices going on and on about something (usually) really stupid. Yes, office hours are there for a reason…

  2. Oh god, stupidity is a growing epidemic. I can’t believe your professor went over it for that long though! My lecturers would’ve just shut it down and told them when office hours are, haha. Also WTF @ “socialism” person. Seriously?!! This makes me feel a little better that there are idiots galore, not just in NZ (although that’s a bad thing, I realise).

    (sorry about the double comment, please remove the other one in moderation!)

  4. Q: Where was the Declaration of Independence signed?
    A: At the bottom of the page

    Do not argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

  5. “one brain cell clinging for life” Oh my gosh. I love it. You have like, serious talent in humor. I bust out laughing and everyone thinks I’m crazy but how can I NOT laugh???? You are destined to be a comedian. I swear!

    • You just made my freaking day. Thanks so much — I really live to make people laugh (milk out the nose is usually the goal) so I’m very pleased.
      And thanks so much for the beautiful compliments.
