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.

"Is Lady Gaga technically an alkali?"

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.

The person who said this is employed in a small factory where he spends his days glueing little rubber feet onto the bottom of chair legs so they won't scratch floors. He is almost constantly complaining about the low wages he receives.

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...

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.

We've had a lot of rain in the summer for the last few years. Do you think it's got anything to do with the cloud of ash?

Since the rain started first, I expect not.

Well, it helps that there's a sign there to tell them.
    Posted by Wrongfellow on 18 Sep 2009.
Very considerate towards elk, are the Canadians.

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