The Dumbest Questions Ever Asked in Song

Page 3 of 3

The Alan Parsons Project's "Games People Play": "Where do we go from here?"

The discount CD bin.

Ylvis: "What Does the Fox Say?"

If you have been unfortunate enough to hear whatever this is, you know that the answer provided is, incredibly, far dumber than the question. There is something about this worth considering, though. The video for this "song" has more than 245 million views. At a running time of 3 minutes, 45 seconds, my calculations show that over 1,754 years of human time have been spent watching the nonsensical ravings of this Norwegian duo. Think for a second: What could have been accomplished by focusing that time on something productive? A cure for cancer? An inhabitable colony on Mars? A beer that is less filling and actually does taste great? I suppose we'll never know.
