Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm starting a club for idiots (I'll be the founder, but not a member). First member, this guy:
Police say Charles Ray Fuller tried to cash a $360 billion check in Forth Worth, Texas.

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.

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.
