Vulture’s Stupidest Things of Summer: An Embarrassment of Riches

Last week we introduced our stupidest things of summer. This week, we realized it is going to be hard to keep this list limited to ten things! Summer is long, and the stupidity, well, it is longer. In just seven days, there has been enough fresh idiocy to really shake things up. New developments include: Katy Perry taking her rightful place in the top three; Ke$ha showing surprising weakness; and Jonah Hex making The A-team look good. As always, we welcome your comments and suggestions; stupidity hurts less when we all make fun of it together.

2. You might imagine that it would be hard to pick out the stupidest moment from Katy Perry's "California Gurls" video: You would be wrong.

4. Though the Situation's new rap song does come mighty close!

3. It's already clear that the Jersey Shore is going to be a consistent contributor to this list. As of yet, nothing is quite as alarmingly stupid as almost-president John McCain tweeting with Snooki

9. Last week, the fact that it took eleven screenwriters to create the mediocre A-Team came in at No. 6. It falls three spots because the fact that it took five writers to create Jonah Hex, an 82-minute-long movie with a 10 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, makes us think the A-Team (51 percent on Rotten Tomatoes!) was actually smart to hire all those writers.

10.5. Marmaduke.

7. After all this movement, Ke$ha finally lands at No. 6 with her still very idiotic lyrics: “My steez is gonna be affected if I keep it up like a lovesick crackhead.”

8. This Twilight still of all the shirtless werewolves: still gloriously, cheesily, campily stupid.

10. Coolio's misspelled "jugalo" tattoo. This remains a perfect storm of silliness.

10.5. Marmaduke.

1. As we stated last week, "Rocket to Uranus," a song combing the suckitude of the Vengaboys, Perez Hilton, and the lyrics "Uranus is so pretty, it feels like home," will be tough to beat. This remains true.

See you next week!
