Let's tax stupidity!

I was lying in bed watching TV waiting for Desperate Housewives to begin, channel surfing, and came across a story on CNN about the stupidest calls to 911, including one guy who called because he felt McDonald's was over-charging him, cops refused to come, he threatened them, it got stupider and, yes, uglier. He was charged with something (is being a moron a crime?).

Then there was another woman who called 911 when a fast food place refused to make the burger her way.

Really, people, is this what you think 911 is for?

There was a Texas woman who called 911 because she thought there wasn't enough shrimp in her shrimp fried rice, and the Florida woman who called 911 because McDonald's was out of McNuggets.

What is it with these morons? I never have patience for stupid people, even when I probably should out of a sense of grace and community, but this is over the top idiotic even for stupid people.

Of course, it's not just about junk food that stupid people waste community resources by calling 911: according to, an Ohio woman called 911 because her daughter performed oral sex on the mother's husband (the girl's stepfather), and the mother called (why? needed assistance?) because the daughter was apparently better at it. Ewww....

I say hold the idiots accountable - if you make a stupid call to 911, or a fake call to 911, or a "my daughter is banging my husband" call to 911, we're gonna fine you. Our tax dollars pay for this crap - let's make the idiots pay. Tax the stupid people!

We could get rid of all other taxation and have huge surpluses if stupidity was taxed.

I agree with the first comment. Plus I think someone should invent a way of administering a Taser Gun down the telephone earpiece..... the only danger is that they might destroy the only brain cell

P.S. I can't believe that you haven't done a blog on your new iPhone. Don't you just love the 'click' sound when you 'slide to unlock'?!!

I agree with you. It is surprising what non emergencies people will tie up 911 with. Great post!
