Some consider the books "An essential resource"
For those without comedic tastes, the "questionable parody" of this website called Wikipedia think they have an article about ...For Dummies.

“Do they make "Plagiarism for Dummies"?”

~ Oscar Wilde on The Dummies Series

“I don't understand - does "a reference for the rest of us" really mean that the books are made for everyone except me???”

~ Captain Oblivious on ...For Dummies

“I learned something from reading a book in this series!”

~ Captain Obvious on ...For Dummies

“I'm a Dummy and I'm proud of it!”

~ The Dummy on the book(s)

“If you edit this page, it says at the top, "Editing for Dummies". That would be good to tell spammers to GTFO of Uncyclopedia. That would be so great.”

~ an Uncyclopedian on Dummies

“And yet, we do it anyway. Ain't life a bitch?”

~ Spammers on the above quote

The ...For Dummies series are books instructing the reader how to accomplish some task. In the 1970s, a series of intelligence tests were used to find the percentage of dummies in the population. It was found that the percentage exceeded 130 percent. This was too large of a market to go untapped, so book companies jumped into the market.

More research was performed, and it was discovered that Americans first started getting dumber in the 1950s. It was largely suspected that the cause was television, but this was difficult to prove. Later it was found to be that the lead solder in the television was the problem, and the cause was that people became confused by the term "TV Dinners" and had started to eat televisions.

'Sex for Dummies' Trilogy[edit]

The following trilogy has been recalled by the manufacturer, nine months after publication:

(The fact that there were four books in this trilogy (in addition to fifteen more which at the time of the recall in editing stages) is a side effect of most of the book being composed of interviews by members of the target audience.)

In retrospect, it appears that encouraging dummies to breed was a quite bad idea.

IDG, the International Dummies Group, apologises for this grevious error.


The ...For Dummies series has been vastly successful due to its wide range and massive availability. As a side-effect of the series' success, the average lifespan of a 'Dummy' has tripled. The resulting 'Dummy' population explosion of the last few years has caused many problems throughout the world,(see War in Iraq or Credit Crisis).

When asked what IDG was doing about the crisis, a spokesDummyperson annouced the next installment in the series would be Population Control for Dummies.


“I couldn't make some of this shit up if I tried, I'm not that creative”
