Welcome!

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.

Hmm. A "Complaints" category, perhaps?
    Posted by JT on 15 Sep 2009.
But called what? People will assume "Complaints" is what they need to click if they want to complain about WIF...
    Posted by JT on 15 Sep 2009.
I think it fits in "Travel" with the other recent submissions.
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 15 Sep 2009.
Fair enough - but I think there might be a place for it in the future, because shop staff and sales assistants have to meet the public face-to-face far more than anyone would choose so we may get several submissions of that type in future.

"My son has invented a new word, who do you sell them to? I can't tell you what it is in case you steal it, it's a good sensible word, how much would it be worth?"

I thought sensible was already a word.

"Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea, where they made unleavened bread which is bread made without any ingredients. Moses went up on Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandments. He died before he ever reached Canada."

Of all the places to want to go to... Canada? Really?
    Posted by Necropaxx on 18 Dec 2009.
Could it be Canada is the Promised Land? Been a lot of conflict in the Middle East over nothing if so.

Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?

Now that you mention it - Why is she missing her arms? Did some psychopathic maniac cut them off?
    Posted by Socky on 18 Mar 2010.
She was a compulsive nail-biter.

Superb! I'm almost tempted to rewrite the voting system just so I can vote for this quote more than once. ;)

God, that's funny.
