Silly hats 'n' flags

Funny enough, if you were to pass a decree that all stupid people have to wear silly hats, there would be a big uproar all over the country. However, if you hand out free flags, the stupid people will come running, collect them and mount them on their cars. The streets have become much safer lately, as every car that you'd better avoid is clearly marked with one of those Stupidity Flags. At least until the european football championship is over, but there's hope that the really stupid people will just keep the flags on their cars. Voluntarily. And if they come out of the cars, some of them even wear silly hats. Voluntarily. Who would have guessed.

I have always been confident that really stupid people always stand out in some way. The only difference these days is that a huge number of less stupid people have joined the march and brand themselves.

However, you should check "Krocher" to get some really drepressing insights into the ways stupidity can go. There is a good first impression for the headshaking bystander at

In the US I think it's bumper stickers that define stupid people. People take it upon themselves to express all sorts of opinions, political and otherwise, in the form of bumper stickers on their cars. And this even in the Los Angeles area where people are sometimes shot while driving their cars on the freeways!(These cases are usually never solved). Why give people who don't even know you reason to dislike you?

And during these shooting sprees the Angelinos react by moving their seats back, hoping the middle roof pillar will offer some protection against bullets. And the mayor says, "Don't worry about getting shot; you're much more likely to be killed by flying road debris." True enough, but not very reassuring!
