In recent years we have seen conditions continue to change in regard to our country's position in the world situation. We have constantly been updating our homeland security procedures in order to preserve the current quality of life as we know it.
But an even greater threat to society has been walking around right underneath our noses for a large number of years now. And that is the continued proliferation of stupid people.
For the longest time, most of us were going around minding our own business when it began to happen. Someone invented the Hokey Pokey, new Coke, and the Segway scooter. The filmmakers thought of Gigli and Alexander, and we were fortunate enough to meet Pauly Shore and Michael Dukakis. I have written this book as a public service for the average citizen who is forced to deal with this kind of stupidity on a daily basis.
Almost everyone overlooks the vast number of stupid individuals who are actually in circulation amidst the general public. The non-stupid population always underestimates the damaging power of a stupid person. And stupid people become even more dangerous when they try to concoct inventions or ideas which might improve their living situation. Some even go as far as trying to selling books. These people will cause pain, anguish, and considerable annoyance for innocent citizens without even realizing that they have driven the last 2 3/4 miles with their left turn signal on.
There are others who you may think are stupid, but their ideas prey on the stupidity of others with items like the Pet Rock, or selling grilled cheese sandwiches that look like the Virgin Mary on E-bay.
This book will impart stories of stupidity running rampant in everyday situations, on holidays, and on the airwaves.

Very often when an individual is put into a position of power, the ego rises in reverse proportion to the person's intelligence quotient.
