It's crowded at the pinnacle of stupid



Kari Smith auctioned off tattoo space on her forehead for $10,000, reportedly to provide a better life for her son. Thanks, mom.

If you think this is funny, you might like the movie "Idiocracy". It's a comedy about a future dystopia in which society has been ridiculously dumbed-down by generations of bad tv, advertising, junk food, and only stupid people breeding. Here's the intro.

Made almost 4x as much as her and it's not permanent!
$10,000 really isn't that much...

Thanks for the link, Dyanne. Perhaps these forehead tattooers are savvier than I give them credit for. :)
