Why We Love Stupid.

Tattoos, fake breasts and enough fat to kill a donkey. Is there something in our gene pool that blocks irony?

This isn’t to say all people who get inked are necessarily stupid. Some just made unfortunate decisions.

For the majority of us, though, we get fat because we can, and that attitude has strange and bizarre implications.

Why would a woman on a dating site, who clearly has fake breasts, plumped lips and God know what else, say in her profile that she’s “looking for a man who’s real”?

Love removes “social shackles,” and we love to do stupid things when the only person who matters is being just as stupid.

Even in some far-flung place in Africa, someone’s forgetting all their trials and tribulations by enlarging their testicles with saline.

It’s nice to have distractions, but we could also be seen by future generations as really stupid.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
