Can you imagine saying to the Beatles, "You'll never make it - four groups are out. Go back to Liverpool"? That's what a Decca Records executive told the Fab Four in 1962. Meanwhile, Senator S.I. Hayakawa allegedly pointed out, "The best cure for insomnia is to get a lot of sleep."
Stupidity experts Ross and Kathryn Petras continue their foray into the world of awkward utterances, slips of the tongue, doubletalk, and just plain dumb statements from politicians, celebrities, sports figures, social leaders - even average joes. You may want to shout with laughter when you listen to this wacky compendium, but remember: "If you can't keep quiet, shut up!" (This warning comes from film director Gregory Ratoff.)
