This 'N That, Friday Edition



Some people are astonishingly stupid.  Granted, all of us are stupid in our own ways, owing to our inclinations.  You are, and so am I.  We euphemistically refer to our stupidity as a blind-spot when in simplest terms it is mere stupidity.  It's like being dysfunctional.  Everyone is dysfunctional to some extent.  So are families.  Some are just more dysfunctional than others.

But sometimes stupidity is ... well ... astonishing, so far out of the norm that it makes the rest of us feel not stupid.  Take this person's bad moment, for example:

Note:  You are expecting a video of some criminal who calls the cops because his marijuana stash was stolen or because an accomplice ran off with the money he robbed from the bank ... or perhaps something along the lines of these head-scratchers.  But you'll be wrong.  I was thinking of this person:




And then there's stupid that can't be fixed, short of a lobotomy:





Long story short, you're not as stupid as you think.  Be grateful.

Speaking of lawyers, this heart-warming story is making the rounds:

One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass.  Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop and he got out to investigate. He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass ?" 
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied.  "We have to eat grass." 
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you." 
"But sir, I have a wife and two children with me.  They are over there eating grass under that tree." 
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied. 
Turning to the second poor man, he stated, 
"You may come with us, also." 
The other man, in a pitiful voice, said, "But sir, I also have a wife and six children with me!" 
"Bring them as well," the lawyer answered. 
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine. 
Once under way, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you." 
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high."

Let's jump tracks and end on a high note.  Watch this video of a dog too traumatized to be saved, until someone saves him with love and attention.  Yes, the formula really can work:
