Many of us know of imabench's legendary series called The Weekly Stupid. I just thought it would be funny if we were to make the TWI.

Ive had people ask me to make a 'weekly win' which is kinda what your proposing, but In my experience people are more amused at seeing people say stupid stuff then brilliant stuff....

By all means go for it though, there isnt another web series thingy on DDO that focuses on smart stuff people say..... Its usually stupidity or just general drama.

I think I might just go for it, now that it's been brought up. That is, unless GOP isn't too shy to do it or anything.

Of course, but it is my duty to offer at the very least the illusion of cordiality, if not the genuine article.

The same could be said for The Weekly Stupid.

And of course, there are some things that are objectively intelligent remarks. A couple of examples would be literally everything I've ever said.

Well most of the stuff that ends up on the WS is submitted to me by others, like roughly 60% of all material on any episode is stuff found by others.

It doesn't completely eliminate bias but it balances it put enough so that everyone's fine with it.

Also of you sh*t on both liberals and conservatives equally then that helps too.

Yeah, but the Weekly Stupid is easier. I mean, it's easier to point to someone saying 'god exists, therefore god exists' as being stupid and have people agree than to any proof of god and have people agree.
