In the early 1980s, shortly after the discovery of AIDS, I told my mom I’d never get married because I didn’t want to give my husband asthma.
Well, children aren’t the only ones who say the darndest things. With election day looming, it’s never been more evident to me that it’s adults who say the darndest – no – the most ridiculous, dumbest, asinine craziness you’ll ever hear. Just when I think I’ve heard the silliest argument ever put forth by man, along comes another that outdoes its predecessor.
Here are just a few statements I’ve recently determined worthy of a mental note.
“Checking my credit report hurts my credit.”

“If you could afford to pay more than $975 in rent, you’d live in a nicer place.”
Source – Woman desperately seeking to get out from under her underwater mortgage.
“My new diet doesn’t allow me to eat pineapple.”
Source – Eater of two packs of Oreo cookies and a bowl of potato chips.
Check out the pregnant lady in the picture below.
She’s concerned about “the effect on her unborn child from the sound of jackhammers” emitting from nearby road work. Now, I’m not sure what decibel levels have a negative impact on unborn babies, but I do know that smoking is harmful to people who live either in or outside their mother’s womb
I’m sure I’ve said some things in my adulthood that boarder on the absurd, but I’m not going to talk about them here. Pointing out the fallacies in other people’s arguments is funner.
What other absurdly comical comments have you heard lately?
