Celebrity Science: Stupidity fresh from your children's role models!Jake Farr-Wharton 35 comments
Would it surprise you to learn that many celebrities and politicians are ignoramuses? Seriously, while there are some politicians and celebrities who are renowned for their brilliance, there are others that simply must be the product of creationist and the personification of dumb-blonde joke parentage.
Before you slap me with a “stop bagging Bush” comment, give yourself an uppercut, because there are far dumber well known humans that are just as stupid. I’ve compiled a few for your amusement and hysterics.
Ex-model, charity campaigner and ex-wife of musical genius Paul McCartney Heather Mills remarked: “Did you know that when you eat meat, it stays in your gut for 40 years, putrefies and leads to a disease that kills you? That is a fact”, she vehemntly chortled before falling through an open manhole.
Science says: Bullshit! All proteins are broken down quickly by enzymes, anything that can’t be digested is excreted by faeces within a few days of ingestion.
Actress Suzanne Somers, was caught talking about ‘the pill’ – that wonderful magic wonder of medical science that keeps the weight off my shoulders – “because is it safe to take a chemical every day, and how would it be safe to take something that prevents ovulation?"
Science says: Bullshit! You crazy wierdo, there is a reason you need to take the pill every day for it to work – the chemicals do not build up over time.
Sorry Suzie; Suzanne Somers also said the following about chemotherapy after Patrick Swayze’s death from cancer: “[They] put poison in his body…Why couldn’t they have built him up nutritionally and gotten rid of the toxins?”
Science says: Stick to acting… chemotherapy is necessary to kill cancer, and while it is a poison, the dosage and drug are tailored so as to only affect cancer cells and leave healthy ones. That said, nutrition is important… for all people… everywhere… not just those suffering from cancer!
Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty said: “I avoid carbonated drinks – they sap all the oxygen from your body and make your skin wrinkly and dehydrated.”
Science says: What the? Yeah, dude, carbon dioxide is bad for your skin… that is why I never exhale…
The actor Roger Moore stated: “There are even surveys suggesting that eating foie gras can lead to Alzheimer’s, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis. In short, eating foie gras is a tasty way of getting terminally ill.”
Science says: Intelligence fail! Foie Gras, asside from being fatal to geese, is no more than a tasty snack for humans.
Fergie, from The Black Eyed Peas, said “I do vinegar shots. It has to be organic apple cider, unfiltered. Two tablespoons. For some reason I’ve noticed a difference on my stomach.”
Science says: Aside from making your breath smell like Keith Richards on a good day, vinegar does nothing.
Sarah Palin, in an article about her autobiography “Going Rogue”, said she “didn’t believe in the theory that human beings — thinking, loving beings — originated from fish that sprouted legs and crawled out of the sea” or from “monkeys who eventually swung down from the trees.”
Science says: Argh, evolution has been trumped by Palin and her superior intellect! Evolution isn’t as fast as she believes scince to be suggesting. It takes several thousand, or even millions of generations for a change to be noticed. Pitty she suffers from clinically diagnosed stupid syndrome… she is so darn hot!
Got any more? Man, I love science!
