"Dumb People"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

Dumb People got no reason
Dumb People got no reason
Dumb People got no reason
To live

They got little minds
Are not smart
They work their whole
Career at Wal-Mart
They have no logic
And no intelligence
They wear wrinkled clothes
And they have no common sense

Well, I don't want no Dumb People
Don't want no Dumb People
Don't want no Dumb People
'Round me

Dumb People are not the same
As you and I
(And I Wonder Why)
They watch Jim Carrey
Until the day they die
(It's A Wonderful Life)

Dumb People got nobody
Dumb People got nobody
Dumb People got nobody
To love

They always slow down
In the left lane
They bring sixteen items
To the ten item lane
They don't bring a list
To the grocery store
Their sheer lack of logic
Makes you really sore
They got clumsy butter fingers
And catatonic minds
They get in the way all the time

Well, I don't want no Dumb People
Don't want no Dumb People
Don't want no Dumb People
'Round me

Thank you for bringing "Dumb People" to our attention. Dumb people always pull out in front of me when I'm riding my Harley. Like I can just STOP without tipping over!

The only thing that prevents this from being an all-five is no mention of the highest-ranking dumb person in America. And I don't mean Jimmy Kimmel.

Michael, I have decided to let Mr. Tong cover Bush from now on

Cover Bush? I thought that was Ari Fleischer's job! Wait a minute... OK, it's the American media's job to cover (up for) him.
