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.

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

Damn those Brits. No respect for physicists. - I'm from London, btw.

Tourist in Canadian park: "How do the elk know they're supposed to cross at the "Elk Crossing" signs?"

Well, it helps that there's a sign there to tell them.

Very considerate towards elk, are the Canadians.

"Four people were killed, one seriously, and eight more received slight injuries" (Japan News)

It's not a serious death unless he owed you money.
    Posted by Necropaxx on 18 Nov 2009.
One was seriously killed. The other three were killed jokingly, then?

American tourist at Stonehenge: "Why did they put the rocks so close to the freeway?"

So people wouldn't have to walk all the way from the parking lot. What are you? Stupid?

"Why are there chickens on the moon?"

I've been asking that same question for a long time.

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.

I think the responses are as funny as the questions: "Toddlers masturbate for the same reason that older children do: It feels good!" and "She may be just as curious about her genitals as she is about her fingers, toes, and belly button — and if she's recently switched from diapers to underpants, she may be able to get to them for the first time."
