Powerful Variant of Stupidity Identified in Texas



TEXAS (The Borowitz Report)—What is being called a “troubling variant of stupidity” has been identified in Texas, Dr. Anthony Fauci has confirmed.

Although the powerful variant of stupidity is not new, it has recently displayed alarming virulence, the esteemed physician said.

“What’s concerning about this variant is that it appears to have developed immunity to all information,” Fauci said. “Of the many mutations of stupidity found in Texas, this one stands out.”

The immunologist urged that steps be taken to prevent this variant of stupidity from spreading. “We know that it has travelled as far as Cancun,” Fauci said.

his friend would say, "Ted, you need to shave that crap off your face. Ted, you don't have the follicle density necessary to have thick full beard, so instead you have this spacey, mostly hairless, partial-beard thing under the mustache that looks like mini-hair plugs."

And I’m not just talking surface. He’s ugly deep-down, through-and-through.

and I swear he would look just like Fidel. Maybe Ted's daddy had more than one reason to despise Castro.

although we can rest assured the GOP would elect them too. They just want a stupid warm body to warm all seats of power.

Right-wing think tanks will take care of all their thinking...
