STUPID AND PROUD OF IT


STUPID AND PROUD OF IT
 

Some people are stupid.  Some people are uneducated.  There is nothing wrong with being stupid.  If you are born stupid what can you do?  Some stupid people know there limitations, work there butts off and are quite successful.

There is nothing wrong with being uneducated.  Many people are not lucky enough to acquire a good education.  Many uneducated people know their limitations, work their butts off and are quite successful.

Some people are not stupid, have an opportunity for a quality education and yet choose to be stupid and uneducated.  These people are proud of being stupid.  They revel in their poor education.  If they have a choice of using correct English or uneducated gutter English, they make a conscious effort to use gutter English.  They will even loudly proclaim their stupidity.  

If asked a simple question like “Who is the Vice President of the United States?” They laugh and respond without embarrassment “Ah, I don’t know any of dat shit!”

Ask, “What is the square root of 16?” and you get the response, “Ah, I never paid no attention to math and shit.”

Enquire, “Do you know what country borders the United States to the north?” and the answer is, “I don’t know; if I ever have to go there then I’ll probably know.”

 Probably know?  Really?

If given the choice of saying “I fell down,” or “I had fallen down,” why not just say “I had fell down”?

Why would you ask, “Why did you go there,” when you can ask, “Why you go dere?”

It is OK to be stupid. It happens.

It is understandable if you were never afforded the opportunity to receive a quality education.  Many are not that fortunate. 

It is not ok to choose to be dumb as a stump or talk like an idiot, and be proud of it.

At leastest that be me opinion.

    Totally agree. Here in my area we have people who think it's chic to be dumb (or at least ACT like they're dumb) and talk like an idiot. They're called rednecks, and they are SUPER proud of being called that. In my mind being a redneck would be something you would want to work hard to overcome. At times I think I'm in the minority.

  4. @L&S - You obviously don't know enough rednecks. It has nothing to do with intelligence or education.

  5. Is it lack of education that makes seemingly well educated Americans say 'that's the way I lay in my bed?' I always wonder how many eggs they find in the morning :)

  6. Don't worry about it Joe. The Darwin awards pretty well prove that these 'stupid and proud of it' people are weeded out by natural selection. Here's a classic example 2007 winner

  10. What I mean is just because all the the Rednecks you know are stupid and uneducated, not all of us are
    I'll agree that some of the contractions I use are a bit of a stretch, I have an aversion to fully punctuate a sentence, and I've been known to occasionally invent a word
    But, about the only time I may act dumb (your word) is when I'm seeking further a further explanation or to keep from drawing attention
