A Tribute to Masercot

I love the bloggers I’ve met online! As such, I want to pay a monthly tribute to my favorites with a post in their style.

Today’s author is Charles, AKA masercot. Although his “Moosehead Stratagem,” “Ask a Genetically-Modified Bio-Engineered Super-Intelligent Dog,” and history lessons are …interesting reads; Charles is most famous for his irreverent lists on varying topics. I will therefore attempt just such a list, in the voice of masercot.

Why It’s Better to Not Be Bright


Instead of staying up all night wondering if life has meaning, you can stay up all night watching reruns of “Saved by the Bell: The New Class.”


If your girlfriend just smashed the car into a cement piling and called your number, she’ll immediately say, “Oh! I forgot!” and call someone who can help instead.


Pretty much nothing at work is your fault. Even though it probably is.


You’re a shoe-in for any political office. Don’t worry about how to get there; people with money and slightly more brains will help you.


Whenever your grandmother turns to you and asks what Thirteen Across is, your dazed and blinking expression will help her realize you’re singing the theme song to “Saved by the Bell” and she’ll have to ring for the nurse.


Offers like “extended warranty” and “variable interest” sound interesting and exotic.


Since ignorance is bliss, you’ll be euphoric. (That means you’ll be stupid.)


I know I fall a bit short of the master so, if you liked what you read, give masercot a Follow.

    I’m impressed, Chelsea. You even threw in a self-referential one. Now, I’m looking over my shoulder…

    I like the blog title it’s got, it’s one that promises less than it delivers and I like that a lot. The search for an appropriate title is always a challenge.
    I probably think the best thing about not being bright is not knowing you’re dumb and who knows, really? Better to be dumb and not know it than to be bright and struggle forever to keep up.
    Good idea, Chelsea.

      Thanks! I think you’re right; you could do a sequel list. 🙂
