About this site

Who invented Who Invented Foxes, and why?

Mike P (database, scripts, HTML) and John T (concept, graphic design) with a bit of help from Mhaille. Fred the Fox was created by Henri Ruukki.

We can all say stupid things at times. That means all of us - if you think you don't, you probably say stupid things most of the time. There's no need to worry, most people say stupid things most of the time, so at least you'll have plenty of company.

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? The sort of thing that's so brain-bogglingly idiotic that you were left wondering how the person who said it has the mental capacity to carry out simple, everyday tasks such as breathing?

We have, and when somebody asked us who invented foxes and why we were inspired to invent this site.
