This skit on The Late Late Show with James Corden, “‘Fantastic Beasts’ of the TSA w/ Eddie Redmayne” is a brilliant way to promote the now-released movie. It is the story of Newt Scamander, his character in the new Harry Potter film, dealing with TSA airport security.
We have all seen stupid warning signs and labels before. This post is going narrow the dumb factor specifically to labels and signs that prevent Darwinism. That said a formal definition is in order but before that a few disclaimers.
First off, if you are easily offended by sarcasm, you may wish to stop reading now. Secondly, links will be provided to actual signs when possible, however, these links may cease to function shortly after the post date. These type of images on the web have a tendency to vanish. Finally, please keep in mind that this a satirical, humorous post… not to be taken too seriously. I do not actually endorse removing stupid people from the gene pool.
Definition of Darwinism
1: a theory of the origin and perpetuation of new species of animals and plants that offspring of a given organism vary, that natural selection favors the survival of some of these variations over others, that new species have arisen and may continue to arise by these processes, and that widely divergent groups of plants and animals have arisen from the same ancestors.
2: a theory that inherent dynamic forces allow only the fittest persons or organizations to prosper in a competitive environment or situation.
In layman’s terms, it is often termed “survival of the fittest”. In the context of this post, definition 2 is more relevant. Mainly the focus is that our society is so protective that we let too many survive. This post is themed “stupid people shouldn’t breed” or “death to the dumbest”.
A few days ago, I got on my soapbox about the edible laws in Texas. Actually, I let a few musically talented attorneys do most of the talking. I thought I would share some more of their wisdom today… trust me, just shut up and listen.
Thanks for listeing. If you enjoyed the video, you may wish to subscribe to the singing lawyers on YouTube.
We all do dumb things. The two individuals I am about to mention, take it to an entirely new level. Arsenio Hall coined the phrase “things that make you go hmmmm”. I actually have that phrase as a category here. Check out these morons in the news.
Putting Special Emphasis on the Word “Service” for Postal Service
While listening to an episode of WaitWait… Don’t Tell Me!, I heard an interesting story about a letter delivery. When dug deeper on the web, I found several similar occurrences. Read on for three amazing deliveries. I wish the USPS were as dedicated as some the postmasters mentioned below.
Scott, from Scotland … aged about 60/70?? … corner of Tiniroto Road (almost). By a bridge. Has a Japanese wife — who may be older but looks about 20 … also has a daughter, about 3. Loves history … Good sense of humour … tells a good tale … Rural delivery area, sort of south east of Gisborne.
They say pot can make one paranoid. The audio below is certainly an example of that. Listen to these stoned drives, convinced they are being followed, turn themselves in… along with 20 pounds of marijuana.
It seems that the stoned criminals thought they were being followed and decided to call 911 to put an end to the cat and mouse game. I can’t tell from the recording if they were actually being followed but found some humor in their above and beyond cooperation with the dispatcher.
