Not Stupid Enough


Here's the story*: while waiting in line to attend the David Letterman show, they make you fill out a survey with your name, age, where you're from, etc. It also has a place to highlight any stupid pet tricks your pet might be able to do, famous people you may have met, and stupid human tricks you might be able to do. Thinking that the field was required (and that if anyone knows a stupid human trick or two it would be me), I filled it in, thinking nothing further of it.

Sure enough, the next day, I get an e-mail from the show asking how I came about knowing this unique trick of mine and if I had a video I could share with them. I was on the road so I postponed a filming session until I got home. And after practicing a bit*, this is what I got (view the video above or check it out here on YouTube).

I sent it off last week and haven't heard back. Judging by the speed of their response last time and lack of a response this time, I can only assume that my trick just isn't stupid enough for them. Or maybe it is too stupid. Either way, there went my hopes and dreams of being on the David Letterman show, at least for now. Next on the agenda: come up with an even stupider trick.

You really got some loft on that third one... I would be greatly disappointed if you didn't hear back on this. It fits the requirements perfectly!*

think you'd have better luck with a topless submission. America loves stupid human nipples. America's loves accuracy too. What about a target of some sorts? Into a cup perhaps, or affix suction cups to the ends and shoot for Letterman's head.

I couldn't agree more w/ per. Topless and into Letterman's coffee cup.

Wren don't ever doubt yourself. You can be as stupid as you want to be. I believe in you.
