Can a Competent Nonfictional Adult Really Be That Stupid?

“A Vancouver woman said she discovered Tuesday that a man with a foot fetish had tricked her into posing as a foot model.” KPTV FOX 12, Portland, Oregon, November 26, 2008.

"I've Been Duped," Vancouver Woman Says*.

Assuming that Ms. Caicedo is being truthful (an assumption that requires an Abrahamian quantum of faith) this serves as yet another example of how watching lots of television can help you avoid awkward situations.

I am referring of course to Episode 83 of King of the Hill, in which Peggy Hill was likewise ‘duped’ into posing for a foot fetish web site under the pretense of providing assistance for an educational project.

You know I ordinarily refrain from passing judgment, but how is it possible that someone not associated with the Bush administration could be so stupid? (And what is funnier: that it happened at all, that she found out about the site, or that she gave an interview about it?)

She wants to warn other women.

Your Humble and Obedient Servant,
B. Freret

* More family friendly than, say, "I'm A Dumbass," Vancouver woman says.

UPDATE: Who knew that Fox ever ever edited anything? Perhaps just a glitch or once in a lifetime occurrence, but it seems the comments to the “news” article linked above have been deleted.

UPDATE TO THE UPDATE: Whew, Fox doesn't ever edit anything after all. That did seem too odd to believe. Seems it was just a glitch, the comments are live again. We'll see how long they last.

Never be surprised by the stupidity of people. Like death and taxes people will continue to find newer and more mind bending levels of stupidity.
