Stupidity Law

“Stupid is as stupid does.” Forrest Gump

Stupid people lack common sense, are oblivious to the impact they have on others and are inconsiderate to the point of causing harm to others even when it does not benefit them.  

Stupid people are all around us and we encounter them on a daily basis. The problem is that they look like us and we don’t know who they are until after the trigger has been pulled.  

While we cannot legislate stupidity away, we can at least require stupid people to give us fair warning and declare their stupidity prior to miring us in their predicaments and tribulations.  

Today, April 1, 2014, I proposed an Ordinance in Greenwood Village requiring stupid people to disclose their stupidity prior to any engagement or discourse.
