Unusual Ways Of Saying Someone Is Stupid

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”


This blog is about highlighting stupidity and hopefully doing it in an entertaining way – well, most of the time anyhow. There are a lot of ways to describe someone or something that is stupid.

Here is a short list that I found on the internet (plus I’ve added a couple of my own favorites). Some of them are quite amusing.

If you have a favorite or know of any others please send them. I’d be more than happy to add them to my list.
