I have long favored a Stupidity Law. Whenever someone does something stupid not covered under another law, authorities could use the Stupidity Law to prosecute. It may be too late to stop Donald Trump, Justin Bieber or Kanye West, but it might be a deterrent in the future. We can only hope. Here are some incidents, which might fall under the Stupidity Law:
A tourist attempted a picture of her floating with nurse sharks in spite of a posted sign that says that nurse sharks do bite. So, guess what? She was bitten.
Two George cops flip a coin to decide if they should arrest a speeding motorist.
Hulk Hogan was suspended from the WWE for using a racial slur. He was reinstated three years later. He had issued numerous public apologies and performed volunteer work with young people.
Donald Trump kept the Queen of England waiting for 15 minutes. Then he and FLOTUS forgot to bow and curtsy when meeting the Queen. Then, Trump walked in front of the Queen and cut her off, making her walk around him.
Are there others?
