When I called for a World Cup of Stupidity, you probably thought I was joking. You may have looked at other jokes within the same article and thought “Oh, I guess he’s just kidding here as well.”
No. In fact, I have only ever sometimes been any more serious than I was when I said that. You heard me.
If there is one thing that unites us as a species, it is our stupidity. Wherever there are people, something is stupid. In any culture, there is a special flavour of stupid. For any region, there is a local brand of stupid. For any religion, any profession, any philosophy, there is a unique and special subspecies of stupid.
Genius is rare and fleeting. The opposite, however, remains consistent and widespread. We are all idiots from time to time. It unites us. It makes us laugh. It is the very essence of humanity.
I am human; hear me dumb.
