*Too lazy to drive to his girlfriend’s house, a man ties helium balloons to a lawn chair–and ends up at 15,000 feet, closing the L. A. airport.*A Chinese contraception program causes the birth rate to rise when men are discovered taking birth control pills and unrolling condoms over their fingers–exactly as shown in the training film.*A gang of Norwegian thieves carefully uses explosives to open a safe–only to find the safe is filled with dynamite. . .In the national bestseller The 776 Stupidest Things Ever Said–over 200,000 copies in print–Ross and Kathryn Petras immortalized idiotic utterances by public figures and average citizens alike. But what about the doers out there, the people who didn’t stop at speaking, but went right out and did something stupid instead?It’s time to give credit where credit is due.The 176 Stupidest Things Ever Done is a hilarious collection of inane incidents, senseless stunts, farcical feats, and utterly asinine activities from throughout history, and around the globe. From Sam Goldwyn to Walter Mondale, Albert Einstein to Fabio, the board of General Motors to British Parliament, this comic compendium chronicles the stupidest acts, ideas, decisions, inventions, songs, and ad campaigns that the mind of modern man has been able to devise. The 176 Stupidest Things Ever Done is a non-stop barrage of belly laughs, conclusive proof that actions speak louder–and funnier–than words.
