I heart stupidity. When you see it, post it here. I'll start.

Some of you know that I've do some teaching of first year sociology students in university. I really enjoy it, and love my students, but -GAWD- grading their work is a nightmare.

Through the course of a year, they have to write short essays on a range of topics ---feminism, Karl Marx, education, Freud, crime, etc. I feel kinda guilty laughing at these because of course they are writing under extreme pressure, but holy bobo I find them funny! Every so often, they write something so frickin' hysterical that it makes me gag laughing. These fleeting gems, I collect. Thought y'all might get a kick out of some of them.

Here we go. (nb, all typos and grammar boo boos are theirs from here on, not mine)

"Education is not really as old as many people think. It all came about in
the 1960s when the Russians were more advanced with outerspace."

"There is no evidence of women in society until the late 1990s"

"Freud is the classic theory of gender he believes the boy has the penis the girl has the clitoris simple as that"

"Freud said that a boy who plays too many dolls might be a p_ssy in later life"

"Feminists think women are the lowest of the low"

"Education is bias it only works for children who come from families where the parents are rich white and male"

"Hitlar believed in the destroying the Jews, however, his dictation only lasted until he was alive, after it was forgotten."

"Weber saw society from his eyes"

"someone from the low class is no good to us. we don't see them as nonsuccessful. That is because of sociology"

"Max Weber is a known and accredited sociologist"

"All around us in our society it is, said to be all around us these 'bureacracy' for example God is higher than Jeesus. The boss."

Actually, I think the parallel between the KGB and the IRS isn't too far off.....hehehe (Black Ops would be more apropos, but you can't have everything.)

Because the KGB thought it was twice as important. *Deletes one of the double posts*

Thank you so much, Crunch. *begins to wonder if this whole conspiracy theory thing has any merit*

Reminder: No need to be paranoid just because everyone's out to get you.

When I was a teenager, I was an exchange student in an English-speaking country colonized by the British. (I won’t name it here to protect those from this country who are not morons.) I had been there for about 8 months, when an acquaintance from school heard me swear.
“Where did you learn language like that?!” she asked me, like a scandalized parent to a 5-year-old. Puzzled, I mumbled something like, “I don’t know… back home, I guess.”
Also confused, she asked, “What language do you speak in Canada?”
“English.”
“Oh, I thought you spoke Canadian!”

Well, it is a bilingual country, you know – English and Canadian

I’m living in Cambodia, and when I had been here for a some time, I took a little boat trip along the Mekong River. I had an enlightening exchange with the boat driver about fishing in Cambodia. He told me that Cambodians don’t fish. No, all the people who fish in Cambodia are Vietnamese. This is because Cambodians are Buddhists and don’t believe in killing living things, so they buy their fish at the market instead.

Though a natural (and intelligent) blonde myself, I have a friend who is so daft 'blonde' is the only way to describe her. Last week we were talking to friend of ours who is English. Someone said that they were sixteen this year and he replied he would be 17. The daft friend asked how come then said it was because he was English and english people are older. Then I said 'Hayley's in Italy' she replied 'no she isn't she's in Tuscany' Finally she looked across the field and went 'that's a funny looking pigeon' It was a seagull.

oh yeah and the 'instramenstrual roles' was great. Does this mean that once women reach a certain age their roles change to 'instrumental'?

Late November last year. A customer at my hairdresser's wants to book her next appointment before she leaves, and starts counting up the weeks. She asks the receptionist "What day is Christmas this year?"

Receptionist says "I'll just have a look" and starts flicking through the appointments diary. Looks up and says

"It's the 25th of December".
