More About the Author

I'm half of a brother and sister writing team. We were raised in suburbia, one of us wears glasses, one doesn't, and 50% of us is female. The other 50% is male -- and is taller than the other half.

We're the creators of the national bestselling Stupidest series - which includes the #1 bestselling page-a-day calendar The 365 Stupidest Things Ever Said (now in its 21st year -- with over 4.5 million copies sold) and books like Unusually Stupid Americans. We've also written numerous other humor books including B is for Botox (an alphabet book for middle aged people), Jane's Guide to Dicks, and Wretched Writing, as well as compiling inspirational bestselling quote books like Age Doesn't Matter Unless You're a Cheese and It Always Seems Impossible Until It's Done (with over 568k copies sold). (Visit us at stupidest.com and on Facebook -- FB/unusually.stupid or FB/kathy.petras)

Our work has received the attention of personalities like Kathie Lee Gifford and Howard Stern and diverse media outlets including the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Wall Street Journal, Cosmopolitan, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, and the London Times. We have been a guests on hundreds of radio shows and tv shows, including Good Morning America, CNN, and Fox and Friends.

I am a noir film and novel fiend, a bad joke aficionado, a word nut, a quote fan, and (I must admit) a sometimes annoying grammar pedant. And I'm proud to say I was on Jeopardy (but, sadly, came in third - and only won a designer watch ...).

For misquoting December 7th, 2012 to some random sportscaster instead of the true source being "Animal House."

One Star for you, for mischaracterizing someone as stupid.

One star for the injustice of misquoting Sweeny Murti. Here's a link to the story: [...]

Hopefully Mr. Murti isn't too hurt by this whole deal. But seriously, "Animal House" is a very funny movie that you should definitely go see!

...you'll start your day off feeling a little better about yourself as you digest the written and spoken foibles of others.

January alone contains offerings from George H.W. Bush, Donald Trump and Yogi Berra (and to be completely fair, and not unfairly categorize him with Bush and Trump: many of the things Yogi is famous for saying far are very far indeed from stupid...just harder to grok by those of us who aren't Yogi Berra).

You can also go online, enter the registration code and get them by email (in case your daily email flow doesn't already have the daily minimum dose of stupid!).

They release a calendar trying to make people look bad with quotes and they are the ones who look bad! Pathetic lack of knowledge, terrible at confirming facts, incompetent that they released a calendar with a quote listed on December 7th as stupid. These two are the stupid ones for not knowing that the quote was from the movie "Animal House'! "Over? It's not over. Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? [...]

While I don't actually own this calendar, I feel compelled to review this calendar with a one-star rating due to the fact that the authors did not perform their due diligence for their Dec 7th entry.
I am assuming that the source of the entry, "Richard Oberholtzer", submitted the quote to the authors at stupidestcalendar@yahoo.com; it is unfortunate that this one slipped through the cracks of their vetting process.

These "foremost experts in celebrity stupidity" blew it big time with the Dec 7 entry that calls out sportscaster Sweeny Murti for "serious problems" with historical facts. The real problem? Murti was using a super-famous quote from the movie "Animal House"--something these "experts" failed to notice or research before defaming this guy. What other facts did they get wrong? How many quotes have been taken out of context? These are valid questions after such a colossal screw-up.

I purchase this calendar every year because it is so clever, and there is enough room for notes on each day's page. I contributed a blooper headline from a prominent paper to the calendar and since they told me the year and day it would appear, I was able to buy them for friends so they could see my name printed on one of the pages.

I've been buying this calendar each year (I did miss one year) for about 12 straight years, and it's always the best calendar of its kind on the market. Funny, and will start your days off right.
