Have you noticed quite a number of stupid things lately? Perhaps now you will find them documented in the Encyclopedia of Stupid.

I love the idea, but it looks like it's a bunch of grim, humorless whiners. I know that my favorite $thing sucks, but does it really need to be codified? This looks less like an Encyclopedia of Stupid and more like an open-source Something Awful.

YES!

Perhaps not.

Encyclopediaofstupid.com is stupid.

Hey, they stole this title from my dating history.

I did get a chuckle out of "Russia has three exports: Women, nuclear radiation and vodka."

Finally, a wiki where I won't feel bad for creating an article about myself.

this is pretty funny. if you'd like to see some solid gold in there, look up the entries for "sometime before 1975," "1984" and "the future."

I'm particularly fond of those moments when entries cross amusingly. for instance, the bill gates entry says "VERY IMPORTANT NOTE. Use a saw to cut off the head of bill gates." and the word saw is a link to the entry for saw. at the bottom of the saw entry is the very same VERY IMPORTANT NOTE from the bill gates entry.

Canada is stupid
You could say some very funny things making fun of Canada, but none of them, unfortunately, are said here. It's just stupid.

This strongly reminds me of something else, except they have better topics.

From the article on AIDS:
"AIDS is stupid.

AIDS is what happens when you have sex with a monkey or a homosexual. It's a disease that was discovered by Jesus Christ in 1984 and later caused him to outlaw any fudgepacking and female/female carpet munching...The acronym AIDS stands for "Anally Injected Death Sentence." ...The term 'AIDSY' is usually found to be derogatory, unless it is one AIDSY speaking to another AIDSY, like when fags speak to fags or niggers to niggers. Also, fags and niggers can call each other AIDSY, since usually it is the fags and niggers who have AIDS. "


Hilarious. Thanks for posting.

Wow; that AIDS entry does make me sorry to have posted a link to this (I just ran across the site a few minutes ago). Sorry to anyone who ends up reading that or something similar.

Well, it's not comprehensive. Because I can assure you, I am deeply stupid.

Many of these entries are actually quite funny:

Communism : The flaw is that Communism doesn't recognize that monkeys are, by nature, a thieving bunch of backstabbing asshats who will do whatever it takes to separate you from what is rightfully yours in order to make their own situation more comfortable.

Am I the only one aside from Gwyneth Paltrow who thinks Apple is actually a great name for a girl? And I'm so not into silly names.
posted by katillathehun at 4:15 PM on October 2, 2007


This thread is unbearably stupid, and yes, katillathehun, you are alone on that one. Apple is not a good name for a girl.

The Encyclopedia of Stupid won't load. Either their web host, their bandwidth, my PC, or a combo of all three is stupid.
posted by mr_crash_davis at 4:25 PM on October 2, 2007


I knew an Apple long before Paltrow's baby; a woman from Thailand who had come to the US to go to school and decided to adopt a nickname that English speakers would be able to pronounce since they kept mangling her real name. She chose Apple. I thought it was a very good name. So that's three of us.

Between entries for "nigger" and "AIDS," I can't seem to start laughing. May we nuke it from space?

This could have been clever and funny. Maybe even first-rate satire incisive social commentary.

It's not. Most fart jokes are more amusing and wry than this drek.

I'd say "nice try," but it's not.

A penis can be used to deal 1d4+str sex damage, or 1d6+str sex damage when used by a black man. They deal x3 damage on a critical hit when used from behind.

That's the only thing that's made me emit an actual 'Heh'.

On my initial browsing I did notice some funny entries, but the other racist, homophobic, etc. stuff is just too much. So I've just gone and flagged my own post.

Speaking, then, of stupid . . .

I suppose if you are going to take a stab at humor it helps if you arent boring. Seems like they put a lot of effort out, then fall back on trying to shock to make up for a lack of wit. Same old boring haters.

Oh, god, that place.

You know, when I first went there they didn't have an "Encyclopedia of stupid is stupid" article, so I sat down and spent a couple hours whipping one up for them. Uploaded images and everything. What did I get for it? They deleted the article and banned me. I didn't even have the foresight to save a copy of the finished article, so it was lost forever. So I shook the dust from my sandals and vowed to leave them to their elitist ways.

A venal, juvenile, and puerile website to be sure, though slightly redeemed by the link within to the infamous Enumclaw equine love scene.

Perhaps we should add a goodly number of comments from this thread where, as you can tell from the comments, few of those with digital cameras actually read the article and understand the points the author was making.

Wow that was both lame and stupid at the same time none the less. Here is the template they must use for every page:

Coding = cheap rip off of Wiki

Text = ______ is Stupid!

_____ is a bunch of faggots that I pwn. Aint' i cool for saying pwned? _____ is also stupid cuz I said so!

All these turds do is yell and whine about stuff and call it stupid. Seriously God they need a girlfriend, maybe a dog, hobby?, or something.
