Stupid Questions To Ask People


bee, not in the library

Stupid questions to ask people.

(I have been asked all of these in the last two months).

Why can’t I sit here with all of these books balanced on my head?

What do you mean the library doesn’t need to have a beekeeper on staff?

Does swallowing glass hurt?

Have you ever fought a Navy Seal? (no)

How am I supposed to stop hitting women if they keep annoying me? (ugh)

Do you have any dictionaries of words that have nothing but words full of positive energy in them? I don’t mean affirmations. Just words full of positive energy. In a dictionary. (a coworker suggested that I write a Hopetionary in case this comes up again)

Can I get help from someone who’s not like…who’s not you? (yes)

Got any money you don’t need?

If I wrote a play, would you feel comfortable recommending someone to star in it?

Where are your books about how hot Hell is? Not metaphorically, the actual temperature…

Can I have your glasses?

So I heard At&t changed their letters to lower case. Who the hell do they think they are?

Why can’t we have more computers and less books in here?

Are you going to vote for Sarah Palin?

How many Kindles can I buy from the library?

How do you get super-hearing?

More to come. Human stupidity is limitless. And fun sometimes.

Please add your own.





One thought on “Stupid Questions To Ask People

  1. I am a firm believer that there is no such thing as a stupid question…

    (No, I can’t even say that with a straight face).

    As evidenced above, there are plenty of stupid questions. I think the only people that argue there is no such thing as a stupid question are people that are too dumb to ask intelligent questions. Actually, I take that back. To believe there is no such thing as a stupid question, you have to assume an intelligent asker. If you are surrounded by non-stupid people, there is a much higher chance you will not be asked a stupid question. So someone in that position could intelligently and accurately posit that there is no such thing as a stupid question. Asking questions is not in itself stupid, and many (most) intelligent people ask questions, but there are certainly stupid questions.

    I will return with examples, though I doubt I will find any to rival some of the above.
