Stupid Questions

By John Ross Harvey

Inevitably you will be asked a question
That defies your own personal limits of stupidity
Like when you say you work in Toronto
(A city of close to 3 million people)
And they ask: “Do you know this guy we met a few years ago?”
When they visited Toronto
You’re polite answer is of course: “Well, I guess we never crossed paths.”
But inside you really want to say: “What are you, an idiot?”
You could be an operator and someone will ask
The phone number for 1-800 something company
If you’re walking your dog in the park c/w a leash attached
And a guy asks: “Is this your dog?”
“Why, yes.” You say, but want to say. “What was your first clue genius?”
An old colleague of mine once told me his favourite saying
“Genius has Limits, Stupidity is Boundless.”A truer statement was never said.
