1001 Dumbest Things Ever Saidby Steven D. (edt) Price
Synopses & Reviews
In celebration of mental lapses and pure idiocy, here is a collection of stupid utterances, unintentional and otherwise, from the worlds of politics, radio, television, newspapers, show business, sports, and literature - and everywhere else people can, and have, put their feet in their mouths.
"Smoking kills. If you're killed, you've lost a very important part of your life."
-Brooke Shields, during an interview to become a spokesperson for a federal anti-smoking campaign
"Outside of the killings, Washington has one of the lowest crime rates in the country."
-Mayor Marion Barry, Washington, D.C.
"Hawaii has always been a very pivotal role in the Pacific. It is in the Pacific. It is a part of the United States that is an island that is right here."
-former Vice President Dan Quayle
"Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."
-Joe Theismann, former NFL football quarterback and sports analyst
A bundle of laughs collected from the cream of spoken and written foolishness.
