So why did I choose to do S is for Stupid?

Well, having been in isolation for many weeks now and having watched so many hours of television in its many forms, I feel I’m now an expert on stupid.

I’ve found myself yelling at stupid adverts that I have no idea what their point is, far too clever for me perhaps.

I’ve yelled at the news.

I’ve yelled at the newspapers and their headlines that lead to articles that have no relevance to the said headline.

I’ve yelled at the Government who treat us like we’re stupid and can’t see through their lies.

I’ve yelled at Americans for their stupidity for believing the orange monster.

I’m yelling very loudly at all the nonsense that is going on in the World.

I’m yelling very loudly at the gaslighting that is going on telling the population lies and more lies and making it sound truthful. (Gaslighting is just a modern word for brainwashing.)

Now I’m yelling at myself for getting in a pickle about stupid stupidity that surrounds me!

Someone once said

“Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I’m not sure about the universe.”
