We can all say stupid things at times. But have you ever heard someone say something so overwhelmingly, mind-numbingly, face-palmingly stupid that you felt the urge to share it with the whole world? We have. That's why we invented WhoInventedFoxes.com.

Here's a random selection of what we have to offer. Reload the page for more quotes.

Which is why people often swim through the air.

This can't be the whole story. If air is really water, then nobody would be worried about the sea level rising.

So, maybe water is really air, too?

A concerned mother writes: "My 17 year old son has been very secretive with me lately, recently he has started to refuse to go to church with the family and tonight when I was going through his room I found a magazine with naked men in it. He obviously has a girlfriend that he is hiding from me that brought that magazine into my home and I am afraid that they are having intercourse and I am greatly concerned that he will get her pregnant."

Conspiracy Theory Mum. Gay is just a myth.

Really I think an unwanted pregnancy is the last thing you should be worrying about.
