Your engagement story is supposed to make people swoon, not cringe. But these real people who really screwed up obviously didn’t get that memo…

1. Hot Air Balloon Fail: London floor-fitter Lefkos Hajji concealed a $10,000 engagement ring inside a helium balloon, thinking she’d pop the balloon — and he’d pop the question. But as he left the store where he purchased the balloon, a gust of wind pulled the balloon from his hands and far, far out of reach. Hajji then spent two hours in his car trying to chase and find the balloon, ultimately failing. His bride to be refused to speak to him until she got a new ring. Read more…

5 Dumbest Moments Of The 1st Presidential Debate

Still feeling the Rocky Mountain High from the first Presidential debate?  We sure are.  Others will fact check — we can’t — we’re dumb.  Think of us as “fun checkers.”  Isn’t that adorbz? Anyway, here are the five flat-out dumbest moments of the night with our ribbing for your pleasure:

1. Dueling Flag Pins: Guys, it’s embarrassing showing up to a party wearing the same patriotic bling. Well, not exactly the same — Romney’s was two millimeters bigger than Obama’s.  That means he loves America more, right?

2. Big Bird: The mellow yellow icon was shown some love by Romney — the same guy who had just pledged to de-feather his PBS nest if elected.  Even dumber, Twitter parody accounts sprouted faster than bird seed in fresh manure.  Lots of attention whores people started tweeting as Big Bird and then lemmings people flocked to follow them.  Cue the inevitable articles about social media being important written for the AARP set, who will, inevitably, still have no clue what it is.  e.g. “Social media? That’s new fangled clap trap!  Now go back to yer Phasebook and git off my lawn!” Read more…

20 Dumbest Presidential Campaign Slogans

While it never wins or loses the election on its own, having a simple slogan that defines your campaign can mean a lot, particularly with undecided voters.  So, in the best case scenario, it shouldn’t be totally stupid. Here, in no particular order, are the 20 dumbest American Presidential campaign slogans.

2012 Mitt Romney: Believe In America: “Believe in America?” This country may be going through a rough patch right now, but does anyone doubt it exists?

2008 Barack Obama: Change We Can Believe In: This slogan was right on, except it turns out he was talking about loose change, which is all we have to live on. Read more…

21 Reasons Why ’80s Nostalgia Is Dumb

It’s no surprise people have gone to the ’80s to meet their nostalgia needs. It’s unseemly looking back before the 1960s. When you say, “The ’50s were great,” folks reply, “They sure were! Which did you prefer: the crippling conformity or the segregation?” The modern pop culture machine chewed up and crapped out the ’60s and ’70s long ago, leaving 1980-89. Which would be fine, except that decade was dumb. Ten long years of dumb — dumb hair, dumb music and dumb crises. Anyone who celebrates this era clearly has blocked out the part of the ‘Rock Me Tonite’ video where Billy Squier starts crawling across the floor. Read this list of reasons why the ’80s was dumb, and think twice before blogging a list titled “Top 20 Reasons I Love The ’80s.”  Read more…

FACT: Believing any of these gay sex myths could result in the lowering of your IQ. You’ve probably heard all of these myths in some form or another from a crazy uncle or a sexist co-worker. But if you believed them, you’re just as bad as the knuckle draggers who spread them. Here are seven of the worst.

MYTH: Being gay is a choice.

FACT: In 2008, The Karolinska Institute scanned the brains of gay and straight people and found a difference in the two, proving that being gay isn’t a choice. Now if only we had a study that examined why people choose to ignore scientific evidence. Read more…

16 Fashion World Conspiracy Theories

1. Celebrities Are Paid To Be There: It turns out that celebrities’ seeming love for the fashion industry — actresses wearing De la Renta dresses or sitting front row at fashion shows — might not be so genuine after all. Designer Nicole Farhi broke a long standing secret in the fashion world: that celebrities are paid to attend fashion shows and wear designer garments. The Daily Mail reported that pop stars are paid close to $100,000 to lend their celebrity to high end fashion shows for the last 25 years. Read more…

Silly toys may be child’s play, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t big business. Here are 11 of the dumbest items that, in the hands of children, turned into pure gold for the people who sold them.

Silly Bandz
These goofy wristbands are just silicone rubber, formed into shapes. That’s it. A pack of 24 sells for around $5 and was invented by Robert Croak, who told CBS news in 2010, “I definitely feel like I’m one of the luckiest men alive.” Seeing that this invention has led to a fortune estimated at $15 million, we’d say that sounds about right.

9 Most Useless Research Studies

I’m sure these researchers had their reasons for conducting these very real studies. We just don’t know what those reasons were.

How Long Can A Shrimp Run On A Treadmill? Noteworthy find from the study: “NSF spokeswoman Maria Zacharias said the shrimp study tested the effects of bacteria on mobility and that shrimps were a good way of figuring that out. “It’s not as if the study was done as entertainment to see shrimps running around on a treadmill,” she said.” Suuure.
