A lady goes to the doctor to see about getting a facelift.
"Well," says the doctor, "I can do the facelift, and then
you'll have to come back in six months for a follow-up."
"Oh, no." the woman replies. "I want it all done in one shot. I
don't want to have to come back."
The doctor thinks for a second, then offers, "There is a new
procedure where we put a screw in the top of your head. Then
anytime you see wrinkles appearing, you just give it a little
turn, which pulls the skin up and they disappear."
"That's what I want!" exclaims the lady. "Let's do that." Six
months later the lady charges into the doctor's office.
"Well, how's the procedure holding up?" the doctor asks.
"Terrible!" the lady bellows. "It's the worst mistake I've ever
"What's wrong?" asks the doctor. "Just look at these bags under
my eyes!" she hollers.
"Lady," the doctor reports, "those aren't bags, those are your
boobs, and if you don't leave that screw alone, you're going to
have a beard!"
"We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid."
"If the Good Lord wanted me to use percussion caps I reckon the river beds would be full of 'em for the takin"

In this day and age it is easier to stay stupid than it is to stay ignorant. I have had the misfortune to have encountered many informed idiots
