If respiration weren't an automatic function, some people would be in capital T-R-O-U-B-L-E because they are, quite frankly, too dumb to breathe.

We're not saying these people didn't pay attention to ANYTHING AT ALL in school, but we are saying they didn't pay attention to much. Particularly history, geography, biology, English, and sex ed.
Gym, tan, laundry might have been their mantra.
To quote Mr. Oblaski, principal in Billy Madison, "what you've just said... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul..."
