Americans Biggest Dumb Dumbs Ever Says British First Grader

In news today from across the pond, British first grader, Timmy T. Sipper, released the following statement with the aid of his teacher, Ivana Biskit. “I think that Americans are the biggest dumb, dumbs ever because they think learning is bad, so they don’t do it. They think the world is so young that we lived with dinosaurs together and that did not happen because I like dinosaurs and even I know people didn’t live with them. They were SOOO big, they would eat you if you saw one and there would not be any people left. It is stupid not to learn because that is why we have our brains to make us smarter.

Timmy T. Sipper With A Message For Americans

My teacher said Americans think all the stars up there too aren’t old and that they are little like me. That is stupider than when my friend Sally put the glue on her sandwich and ate it and threw up on Ms. Biskit’s desk and it smelled bad when Ms. Biskit put this green stuff on it that made us get sicker cause it was smellier than Sally’s throw-up. When I do things that are dumb, my Mum gets really mad and says, ‘Don’t be dumb and do dumb stuff. Be smart and do smart stuff and listen to Ms. Biskit causes she’s smart and went to school a long time to learn things to teach you.’ So Americans, you are dumb and need to listen and not be dumb cause it’s stupid to be dumb when there’s people who went to school a long time to help you not be dumb. Thank you and don’t be so dumb anymore, Timmy T. Sipper.”

  1. How sad the most powerful nation on the planet needs to be told what’s what by a British first grader. It might explain why, twenty or thirty years from now, it will no longer be the world’s most powerful nation anymore.
    This is a rather famous clip you may have already seen that kind of hammers this point home in the funniest and poignant way at the same time: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16K6m3Ua2nw

  2. Is it a national problem? How can a nation be so dumb? What happened to your educators?

    • It is a national problem. We suffer in America from a disease called anti-intellectualism and an intuitive fear of knowledge and learning. America is a Christian country. The Right’s version of Christianity permeates all government at the Federal level. We grant tax exempt status to religious institutions with property worth billions, and it is disgusting. I just read two articles stating that 33% of Americans believe Evolution is false and most think the big bang isn’t a real event that happened and when our universe began. Science is equivocated in America to be no more right or wrong than fairies, gods, and alien abductions. And everyone feels they are as right as anyone else and need equal consideration for why their values should be the backbone of our education system. There are state governments considering banning their local Fox affiliate from airing Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos” program because he talks about evolution and the big bang and not fucking Jesus and the Gospels. So to answer your question, yes, Americans are dumb. There is an epidemic of stupidity in America when it comes to education, and a pandemic when it comes to being silent about it.

    • Same shit is happening here in Chicago. Guns in fucking bars. Maybe we should just insist everyone be armed 24/7 and encourage people to shoot at the first thing that moves. We are not progressing.

    • What’s disconcerting about this is that American’s limibc system appears to be over-riding their frontal lobes, as noted by that Psychology Today article — and there are many peer-reviewed studies showing that conservatives (who are the ones passing these gun laws) tend to have increased gray matter volume in their amygdala (fear, aggression) which is in the limbic region of the brain.

      In other words — like you mentioned — shoot first, question later. 😦

  3. Guess you should take up a post as a teacher Sir. A bit all encompassing when it comes to Americans. Satirical gem. Do you know in State schools here we don’t do religious education as such any more?

    Like

    • It is all encompassing. I do not forgive passivity any more than I do purposeful idiocy. Christianity as it’s practiced by the right, inundates the American government like a cancer that is welcome rather than despised. In our bloody Constitution we declare religion and state to be separate then grant religious institutions special deference and tax exempt status on land that is worth billions in tax money. Dumb. And too many Americans are deaf and dumb to see how bad it is.

I, being a dumb American, didn’t realize until I started communicating on these blogs with you all, that the grip of religion wasn’t as tight on people’s necks as it is here. Bloody Australia has an atheist as a President I hear, an atheist! in America, to say you’re an atheist is akin to saying you’re a raper of infants. There’s no way an atheist wins shit here. And we have separation of church and state written into our Constitution! It’s very impolite of me, from an American view point to write this blog the way I do. I deliberately go over the top and I’m deliberately one sided and nasty because I’ve had to listen to the Right’s Christian horse shit for too long.

I’m atheist because I just don’t see evidence for god. I don’t care that people do, I care only that I’m judged and condemned because I don’t. So, I bitch about it here cause I can’t do much else.

He’s a spindly wimp, very intelligent and a teacher, who I think even wears glasses. Bram Bones on the other hand is dumb as a door knob but muscular, desired by babes, and heroic. Also, as much as I love “Forrest Gump”, it displays an anti-intellectual message: The bumbling simpleton always wins the day. In reality, it is not good to dumb, but what’s worse is to chose to be dumb and feel proud for doing so.

    • I asked because I had the chance of involvement in educational systems of three countries, and experienced the relevance of several options, and have found interesting things, from fairly non-biased compulsory Religious Education, where rather cultural aspects of major religions are taught, to optional, denominational RE as requested by parents, and also no religious education at all, with children left to bits of information scattered through humanity subjects.
      I have found mandatory, culturally informative RE as a good tool to raise both respectful awareness of religious rights, and also a healthy critical approach to such beliefs.
      Having children with parents of different religions, sitting in the same class and dining hall, without killing each other as their parents did, will initiate questions leading to a better understanding of how to avoid past tragedies…
      I am culturally Agnostic Jewish, but one of my best blogger friends is Palestinian Atheist, one of my best respected friend is culturally and religiously Muslim, another highly regarded blogger friend is Atheist and still have devoted Christian friends. We all know of each other’s “persuasions”, but somehow learnt to respect each other even if we strongly disagree when it comes to beliefs.
      I have found that information and access to it is the best tool against bigotry, but a country which still hasn’t come to terms with the difference between fact based science and belief based religion, has either reached its pre-decline historical senility status, or hasn’t yet grown up to the respect it tries to enforce, instead of earning it…

    • Excellent. That was well put and very true. I’m a Catholic by culture and atheist by belief. I’ve worked in one capacity or another for the Archdiocese of Chicago and have friends with various beliefs. Intelligent, well educated individuals who are fairly well adjusted generally learn to co-exist. When dogmatic black and white thinking dominate the thought processes of too many in a given group, shit happens that’s never good when new ideas try to enter in. I just bloody don’t know why it is SO important to the god damn Christian Right fuckers in America to insist they are absolutely right about shit they can’t possibly be absolutely right about. Aggravates the shit outta me.

    • Nevertheless, when it comes to real life issues, where plain commonsense should suffice and need no judicial system to decide right from wrong, the Christian Right with all their billionaires and influence, just show their true colours, i.e. shepherds of “law” abiding, dumb taxpaying mindless masses. And if anyone has a problem with this, let them be reminded of Terry Schiavo, assassinated under the righteous eyes of a Christian nation…
      If a self proclaimed Christian nation has arrived to advocate a “justice” system condoning what’s been done to that poor woman, I’d like to remind them of all truly great Christians who have chosen to disobey a “justice” system which condoned injustice, like all those pastors, preachers and lay people who risked their life by saving Jews and other unwanted people, against the official position of their state approved churches.
      Having said that, I have just proven, that you don’t need religion to be neither human, nor good, but oftentimes quite the opposite…

    • Well said once again. When I listen to the righteous Right spout their shit, I often think that they feel they are so powerful and willful that they somehow deliberately willed themselves to be born into wealthy families and advantage. Most folks who weren’t born into such niceties have a much different outlook on the world. I heard Mitt Romney going on about how bloody hard hr worked to get where he is. Right, pal. And that reminds me, how in God’s name do Mormons get away with not being outed as fake Christians? Not that I care, but people do, and no one pointed out that Mormons are way out different than your fly by night wacko Christian. Ugh.

  4. Hahahah — that reminded me of the movie Idiocracy.

    “Narrator: As the 21st century began, human evolution was at a turning point. Natural selection, the process by which the strongest, the smartest, the fastest, reproduced in greater numbers than the rest, a process which had once favored the noblest traits of man, now began to favor different traits. Most science fiction of the day predicted a future that was more civilized and more intelligent.

    But as time went on, things seemed to be heading in the opposite direction. A dumbing down. How did this happen? Evolution does not necessarily reward intelligence. With no natural predators to thin the herd, it began to simply reward those who reproduced the most, and left the intelligent to become an endangered species.”
