Do Tell: What's the Stupidest Question You've Ever Asked or Been Asked?

Do Tell: What's the Stupidest Question You've Ever Asked or Been Asked?

Today is "stupid question day.” Some people say "there is no such thing as a stupid question" and while I would like to agree, let's be honest, sure there is!! I know I have asked my fair share of them, so ladies, do tell, what is the stupidest question you've ever asked someone, and, what's the stupidest question you've ever been asked?

i love all of these!! i cant remember a stupid question right now but i can think of a "stupid answer". it was in junior high and my teacher told us to fill in the blank. He said, " the great wall of _____" my friend was so excited about this one cuz she felt so confident in her answer and she shouted out "CUBA!!!" the whole class just looked at her and she couldnt understand why!! wow i still laugh about it

LOL, great post! I hate that "why are you single?" question too. A few weeks ago, a co-worker asked me how to spell scan, so I told her S-C-A-N. About 20 minutes later, she asked me again, and I spelled it again, and she said "Are you sure?" Then about 20 minutes later, she asked me AGAIN how to spell scan, and I told her, and she said "No, it has an R in it." I said "No it doesn't," and she said "Yeah it does," and wrote SCRAN. :ROTFL: Stupid in several different ways-not knowing how to spell scan, not remembering what I'd already answered, and then deciding her spelling was right anyway. Another question I hate is "What country are you from?" and I say "Australia" and people say "But where are you from originally?" I was born here, my parents were born here, my grandparents were born here!

I've been asked if my boobs are real, but that doesn't really bother me. (They're real, and if I didn't like 'em, I'd just buy some that suited me better! God bless America.) BUT: my friend, Manny R., has the funniest comment about boobs: "If I can feel 'em in my hands, they're real!" :D

So my best friend was telling me about the Dominican Republic and turned to tell him " I want to go there! I've never been to South America!" That was 3 years ago and I never hear the end of it...

i lived in kansas for a while, and whenever i tell people i used to live there they always ask "So, did you meet Dorothey?" or "Do you really have tornadoes?" well, no, Dorothey isn't real, you idiot, and tornadoes are a very real natural event. they really happen.

is "do you have a boyfriend?" , when I said no... they said the stupidest question "why?" lately I was answering, "I kind of eat them, so I don't got any now" the question, sadly, is from my aunts, friends and cousins...

I work for an ISP, and definitely hear some pretty baffling questions daily. Some of the best: (when telling someone to click on a button near the top of the screen)"Where is the top part of my computer screen?" "What's a keyboard?" "Do I need to be connected to the internet to use my CD Drive?" "Do I need a separate keyboard to type capital letters?" "My computer screen has had smoke coming out the back for a while..is that bad?"

Oh! I forgot one. I'm a waitress, and often times when bills are split, it isn't split exactly evenly--usually one more person will pay an extra penny. One woman actually asked me why hers was more than her friend's (by a cent, ugh). I told her jokingly that it was because the government hasn't come out with half-cent coins yet. She was like "Oh, really? That's why?" People are unbelievably stupid.

I think the stupidest question I have ever asked was a week ago. I got eggs that are fed an all vegetarian diet so for some reason I asked my boyfriend "Does that mean the chickens were vegetarians?" and he just stared at me for like 5 minutes shaking his head. It didn't even dawn on me that of course they would be vegetarians, they can't eat meat! ^Unfortunately, chickens do eat meat. Grain does not fatten them up fast enough, so they are often fed the scraps that don't end up on your plate. It's forced cannibalism. The stupidest question that I get asked constantly is "so... you don't eat meat?" after I tell people I'm a vegetarian. What do you think vegetarians are? Though I do work with this girl who calls herself a vegetarian but eats chicken... I keep reminding her that she's just a preferentialitarian (lol I made that up). It irks me a bit!
