a person who is notably stupid or lacking in good judgment
Sure that's the definition, but most people prefer to grasp concepts by example rather than by definition.
So let us find an example of a moron by looking at the people who've been called 'morons' in the past.
Not along ago, a top aide to the Canadian Prime Minister once called George Bush a "MORON" (and Bush supposedly heard it behind his back).
So is Bush a moron?
Well... I guess no matter how good or bad his decisions are, calling him a moron is a little harsh.
So who really justifies being called a moron?
This woman does.
Woman Crashes When Teaching Dog to Drive
BEIJING (AP) - A woman in Hohhot, the capital of north China's Inner Mongolia region, crashed her car while giving her dog a driving lesson, the official Xinhua News Agency said Monday.
No injuries were reported although both vehicles were slightly damaged, it said.
The woman, identified only be her surname, Li, said her dog "was fond of crouching on the steering wheel and often watched her drive," according to Xinhua.
"She thought she would let the dog 'have a try' while she operated the accelerator and brake," the report said. "They did not make it far before crashing into an oncoming car."Xinhua did not say what kind of dog or vehicles were involved but Li paid for repairs.
Okay okay... let me say that again so that I'm sure I'm not hallucinating this,
A WOMAN CRASHES HER CAR FOR TRYING TO TEACH HER DOG HOW TO DRIVE.
Now I'm sure there are many types of morons out there... but what I want to know is.. WHAT KIND OF MORON TRIES TO TEACH HIS/HER DOG TO DRIVE?
But no no no.... I always try to look at the better side of things.
Maybe she's not a 'moron'. Maybe she's really a genius that sees the future.
And the future has dogs driving cars in it so she wants her dog to be the first of all Car-Driving Dogs.
But why stop at getting dogs to drive?
Why don't we get them to join the army and fight our wars for us?
Or get them to run our governments.
And since dogs are drivers and hence potentially automobile consumers, why don't we even make dog cars?
Well we won't!
Because not all of us are morons.
