Some of the funniest, shake-your-head moments are bestowed upon society by fools. Did you hear about that teen in North Carolina who held up a store with a banana and then ate the evidence, or the man in Texas who rented a car to rob a bank, completely taking for granted that the car dealership had his personal information? Admit it! You love laughing at idiots. So why not write about one?
Think of a scheme gone wrong because of stupidity and write a scene from the POV of a witness, police officer or reporter. Or go for ironic karma, like a college student running a plagiarism ring gets his I.D. stolen by a hacker.
Stupidity can be a good springboard for humorous writing, so brainstorm some strokes of non-brilliance and get crackin'.
