Description

"The Lexicon Of Stupidity" is an over-stuffed dictionary of quotes, banalities, actual book titles, hold up notes, menu items, TV listings, and more, each meeting one exacting criterion: they're so jaw-droppingly dumb you can't help but laugh. It's the wit of the witless. The comedy of the clueless. The giggly fun of celebrities, athletes, politicians, newscasters, and other pompous types planting a foot (or two) firmly in their mouth. And no authors could be more qualified to pull it together than Ross and Kathryn Petras, who wrote that calendar celebrating stupidity - "The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said" - which is a perennial knock-out.It even includes real courtroom testimony: Q. Are you sexually active? A. No, I just lie there. Take a moment to reflect on what this season really means...Q. What would you like most for Christmas? French Ambassador: Peace throughout the world, Soviet Ambassador: Freedom for all people enslaved by imperialism, British Ambassador, Sir Oliver Franks: Well, it's very kind of you to ask. I'd quite like a box of crystallised fruit.
