I'm starting a club for idiots (I'll be the founder, but not a member). First member, this guy:

Do you ever read The News of the Weird type stories? They're full of stories of idiots. You'll split a side laughing so hard at the stories.

Can I retroactively induct Jill Foreman for this April 1st beaut?

He said officers Hope Kingery and George Miller stopped a vehicle for a traffic violation and the driver could not produce identification or a valid driver's license. Miller called the car's registered owner and left a message, but in the meantime they determined that the vehicle wasn't stolen and allowed the driver to leave, Kraus said.

About an hour later, Miller got a call on his cell phone from the apparent owner of the car "who stated that she would like to buy $150 in crack,"...

Trout smacking is the most effective. Truly.

Um, smacking someone with a trout, not smacking a trout.

There.

Okay, grandma, daughter, and grandson murder grandpa. They stuff him into the incinerator on their rural property. The incinerator won't work, so the daughter calls a repairman. And doesn't remove grandpa. Guess who the repairman finds? They all get charged. Fancy that.

If his punishment is to count to 360 billion, then he won't make the same mistake again.

"Towards the end of our sale (Friday) night, a young couple came and purchased two boxes of cookies and left with $93.50 in change," Jil Hennessey-Seabolt, the [girl scout] troop's cookie director....

..... the girls who were working outside King Sooper last week questioned the couple about the bill, which appeared to be about an inch shorter than a real one, but accepted their explanation that it had been through the washing machine.

http://blogs.usatoday.com/ondeadline/2008/02/couple-uses-cou.html [Broken]

Only an idiot would accidently shrink their money in the money washing machine. Geez, everyone knows you launder money with the wash cycle set to warm, not hot, and air dry only.

The Fortean Times is a treasure trove of news stories about idiots...

http://www.theherald.co.za/herald/news/n10_02052008.htm [Broken] government employees.

Idiot people in government again. I especially like the bit at the end about "Beppe Grillo, an Italian comedian and politician..."
