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.


"Why are there chickens on the moon?"

I've been asking that same question for a long time.
    Posted by Socky on 30 Jan 2010.
It's the Martian goats that puzzle me most.
    Posted by JT on 30 Jan 2010.
That would've been funnier if you didn't post the link. The question is in the category for the game "Harvest Moon," which does in fact have chickens.
    Posted by CheddarBBQ on 31 Jan 2010.
Ah, I see - I've never heard of Harvest Moon and so had no idea (this is not the first time my unfamiliarity with popular culture has caused me to post something that turns out not be quite a stupid as it at first seemed).
    Posted by JT on 1 Feb 2010.
Oh, don't worry, it's plenty stupid.

Yeah, I've seen this one :)
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 7 Oct 2009.
Actually, that does make sense, now that I think about it.
    Posted by CheddarBBQ on 2 Dec 2009.
That or: "Keyboard not found. Press any key to continue." I got it once.

"What are the symptoms when a guinea pig dies?"
    Posted by JT on 7 Jan 2010. + (8) - (0) Permalink
Lack of breathing is one to look out for.
    Posted by JT on 7 Jan 2010.
Lack of enthusiasm when he is near your anus.
    Posted by CheddarBBQ on 7 Jan 2010.
What kind of guinea pig did YOU have, Cheddar?
    Posted by Necropaxx on 8 Jan 2010.
The Guinean Guinea pig. The one with 12 inches of crude manpower.
    Posted by Moosh on 8 Jan 2010.
Ah, the Guinean Guinea Pig. A great pet for children (so long as you remember to buy plenty of Vaseline along with petfood).
    Posted by JT on 8 Jan 2010.
Is it realistically textured?
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 8 Jan 2010.
Lack of enthusiasm when he IS near your anus. Or Uranus for that matter.

Lack of enthusiasm when he is near poop.

"We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five euros (£3.50) from a street trader, only to find out they were fake." (Tourist complaint to travel agency)

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.

I'm so gonna get a banhammer from that site for going around answering all the stupid questions with stupid answers...
    Posted by DaveK on 17 Sep 2009.
I've been trying to do the same - but, remarkably, I keep getting awarded trust points!

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.

"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.
