Here's Your Sign

Have any of you guys seen the Bill Engvall comedy sketches about stupid people? His premise was that we should give stupid people signs that say, "I'm stupid," which they could carry around with them so others would know not to rely on them for anything at all.

I was at the coffee shop yesterday, and the person in front of me studied the menu above the barrista's head for several minutes, and then ordered a large iced latte. The barrista asked, "skim or whole milk?" The person asked, "oh, does it have milk in it?"

Uh.... let's see now, "latte" literally means "milk" in Italian. The menu, which the person had studied at length, described a latte as containing milk. The person had studied the sign for several minutes before ordering....

All I could think was, "Here's yer sign..."

My son has a t-shirt that says, "I See Stupid People". Woulda been funny if you'd have been wearing it yesterday.

"I'll have a Latte black please??"
Boggles the mind that these people hold jobs.

I didn't know "latte" means "milk" in Italian. But if I had read the sign, I would've known. Eh, I don't drink coffee anyway. Perhaps I should, sounds like all sorts of interesting people are at coffee shops...

Would anybody wear an "I'm with Stupid" shirt these days? Would anybody wear the "Stupid" shirt? Or was there ever a "Stupid" shirt? Did "I'm with Stupid" just point to a random unforunate (or perhaps deserving) person standing next to them?

The 70s were so long ago.

Or perhaps a big red L tattooed on their foreheads?

Of course, that might not go with many of my outfits as I suspect may be one of the "stoopid." (I took a test on the Internet today that said I was 69% stupid.)

While someone was outside jumping the battery that had died on my car, my boss asked me if I had left my car's headlights on all day. My answer was, "No, not all day. Only until the battery died. Here's yer sign". I was pretty surprised I wasn't fired on the spot, but I couldn't resist!
