Befuddled genius

Dave Chapelle said that Kanye West is a genius and I know there are times when a genius speaks and the average people around them can’t comprehend what they are saying.................... but the same is also true for idiots and crazy people. So when someone utters something like this about the 13th Amendment:

 “Why would you keep something around that’s a trap door? If you’re building a floor, the Constitution is the base of our industry, of our country, of our company. Would you build a trap door that if you mess up and accidentally something happens, you fall and you end up next to the Unabomber? You got to remove all that trap door out of the relationship.”

….you have to wonder if it is truly a genius speaking, or someone considerably less cerebral.

    1. This reminded me of: "Truly you have a dizzying intellect."---Westley to Vizzini in "Princess Bride"

  2. When I saw the title of the post I thought it was about me. But when I looked closer I realized it wasn't. I'm not "befuddled". But I am definitely fuddled. I spend my days in deep fuddle, fuddling from activity to activity.

    I finally took yet another look at the title and saw the word "genius", which also should have clarified it was not me. I thought the word was "genesis". I read the title as "Fuddled Genesis" which happens to be the name of my boat.

    1. If true, that is a magnificent name for a boat!

    2. I believe that the original Fuddled Genesis was part of the fleet during the height of the British Empire's power.

    3. I did not know that. Very cool!
