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.

I think we've got a few of these now. Do we need a "Typos" category?

Lawyer: "What happened then?"
Client: "He told me, he says, "I have to kill you because you can identify me."

A very good question, because, people die if they are killed. You know?

"What is 58.25?" (note: no further context...)

Half of 116.5, which is half of 233, which is half of 466, which is half of 932, which is half of 1864, which was the year the first submarine sinks an enemy vessel. Coincidence?
