That was Stupid :o)

While the exact day is in dispute, the National Day List I consulted says it is today.

From Wikipedia: Ask a Stupid Question Day is a holiday that is sometimes celebrated in the United States, usually by school students and teachers.[1] Although Ask a Stupid Question Day takes place on September 28, it is usually observed on the last school day of September. Origin
According to, "the roots of this special day go back to the 1980s. At the time, there was a movement by teachers to try to get kids to ask more questions in the classroom. The kids would then ask stupid questions to make the teachers happy."

So, Happy Ask A Stupid Question Day :o)

Here is a good example: If the professor on Gilligan's Island can make a radio out of a coconut, why can't he fix a hole in a boat?

  2. it follows the same reasoning that if faux says it, it must be true...


  3. Are you sure that it is only celebrated on the 28th of September? Because I think people choose to celebrate almost day, by asking stupid questions!!
