The Advantages of Stupidity

Admittedly, stupidity has certain disadvantages. Life isn't

a bowl of cherries. And being stupid doesn't make it any

fruitier. Being stupid can annoy even the most sensitive

people. If one acts stupid, and does it in the wrong crowd,

like a group of adults, it will seem more immature than

funny. If one is forced to act stupid while dealing with

lower life forms, for example, high school teachers, one may

encounter barriers such as cruelty and insensitivity, with

the utterance of statements like, "Think with your head

straight!" or, "You have a brain, use it." Yet these are

all true, there are still many advantages to stupidity.

The first advantage is very easy to understand. Stupid

people are never asked to do a lot. Many have noticed that

people tend to steer away from someone they feel may be

stupid. This is for a very good reason. The stupidity

which they posses makes a name for themselves, a name which

can be very difficult to shake. Possibly, it is a word

which describes the working habits of the person, such as

"crappy". Yet, this creates a positive situation for the

stupid person. They will have a lot of free time on their

hands for more of lifes truly meaningful pleasures. Some of

these activities are combing facial hair, and counting the

pixels on a Sony TV. Now, there has been a rumour going

around that suggests that stupid people have low

expectations. This is true. They are so stupid that they

don't realize great from O.K. They could have a Sanyo

cordless phone, but would probably choose instead a Pierre

Cardin alarm clock telephone, because it comes free with

their sensamatic folding bed. And someone with the

"advantage" of stupidity might have a hard time doing

certain tasks, or setting things up. Yet this isn't all

bad. For example, if a stupid person leaves the chore, and

comes back to it later, no one will be able to understand

it. Would they get fired from their job? No. For the very

simple reason that no one would understand their work except

for them. The job would have to ...
