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.

Was thinking the same - it'll be a handy place to shovel all the billions of Bushisms we're going to get before long, too.

If you place a piece of litmus paper on Lady Gaga it will reveal that she has a pH of 5. This means that she is in fact technically an acid.

Of course he would be. If his computerized voice tried to talk with a British accent, it would explode.

Someone should register YoutubeAdmin@yahoo.com or something and send him an email. :)
