Masters of Understatement
Do YOU happen to know a knucklehead, a numbnut, or a dumb-as-a-doorknob indvidual who has the really irritating habit of stating the obvious? If so, tell us your story.
Okay, since you insist, I'll go first. After sitting on the freeway for forty-five minutes without moving one inch and with the engine turned off, I turned to Martha and said with all seriosity, "Gee, there must be an accident up ahead." Yes, friends, I am occasionally numbnutted.
But Martha isn't blameless either. Every time she turns on a lamp with a burned out lightbulb she mumbles, "Huh, the lightbulb must have burned out." And then she walks away.
