Announcing the Idiot of the Week Winner!

Thank you to everyone who participated in and supported this week’s Idiot of the Week Blog Hop! It is reassuring to know I am not the only one who thinks other people are idiots. I know there are more of you out there, and I hope to see you join the IOTW Blog Hop next week.

Now, a special congratulations to (drum roll)….Arden, at Musings of a Dancing Wino, for her winning post about her idiot coworker. Her prize is the satisfaction of knowing that out of all the idiots this week, her idiot was the most idiotic, based on the number of Likes her post received. I highly recommend checking it out here – I am positive you can relate to some or all of what she says if you have ever felt like this:

And a very honorable mention goes to Jill at Universal Musings for her post on idiots who misuse words. This is also extremely relatable, so go read her post now so you can either commiserate or make sure you aren’t one of these idiots. This topic is near and dear to my heart and I can’t believe I haven’t written about it yet. In high school I had a teacher who liked to say ‘for all intensive purposes’ instead of ‘for all intents and purposes’ and it drove me crazy. In our lessons on Charlemagne, he liked to refer to him as Charmaine. Um, this is what I think of when I hear the name ‘Charlemagne’:

(Actually, to be honest, this is what I think of when I hear the name ‘Charlemagne’:

because I’m like, Uh, who the f is that?)

And this is what I think of when I hear the name ‘Charmaine’:

(my apologies if your name is Charmaine and you are not a stripper, I do not wish to insult)

Even for the Charmaines who aren’t strippers, there is still a big difference between them and Charlemagne. The least of which being the number of syllables in their name. Just sound it out. It’s not that hard. I love when people see my last name (4 syllables, 11 letters), panic, and just blurt something out that has half the syllables and but new letters and sounds added. Yeah, that’s it. You had a one in a million shot that the word you made up happens to be my name and you got it. Well done.

But I digress.

Thanks again for being a part of the first Idiot of the Week Blog Hop and I hope to see you back next week!

  1. Hooray! I’m the Idiot of the Week!! …… wait a second

    As an update, this coworker is about to get a stapler to the face. It just keeps getting worse! So if you happen to hear about a paralegal gone mad with stapler story in the news, it is I….

  2. You are genius for creating this blog hop. I’m torn between being afraid to participate because I just know how mean I’ll get and wanting to participate with every fiber of my being. Because idiots? I know them.

  3. Just to be clear, in the unfortunate event that Arden cannot, or will not, serve, I am a heartbeat away from being the winner? Much like Charlemagne, I am drunk with power.

    Congrats to my worthy opponent Arden!!

Feel like you can relate? Commiserate! Let me know what you think:
