“No one is exempt from talking nonsense; the mistake is to do it solemnly.”
—Michel de Montaigne

About Us celebrates stories that give new meaning to the term “idiot proof.” The website’s founders fall into two categories: error-prone and (mostly) error-proof. One sleeps, the other doesn’t. One is directionally impaired, the other homes in correctly. One has much more fun on a daily basis. (You decide which is which.) One laughs at herself; the other also laughs at her.

We now live in a state known for its political gaffes. But the gaffes we revel in most are our own—and those of our friends. We hope you’ll ’fess up and tell stories on yourself, too.
