I love this title. It is extremely appropriate to our current social situation, in which the Dumbass has crept out of the woodwork and made his presence known. His existence - who he is and the mindless, mocking, illiterate, ignoramus ways he spews forth words of stupidity - are identified, making knowledge of the fact that he is a Dumbass that with which is known by those who have access to facts. The Dumbass is able to get by in society by remaining silent, leaving question as to whether he is a Dumbass in doubt. When the Dumbass communicates with the general public, the question as to whether he truly is the Dumbass or not is no longer left to doubt. Anonymity is the best ally of the Dumbass. When the Dumbass exposes himself to the light of day, a large spotlight shines upon him. The spotlight says, "DUMBASS!" The Dumbass therefore confirms his Dumbassedness and his Dumbassedness becomes common knowledge to a wide swath of the general public, who upon hearing of the Dumbass consistently reach the general, rapid-fire conclusion, "Hey, there's a Dumbass!"
"Yeah, that's a Dumbass."
"He sure as heck is. A Dumbass"
"Who is a Dumbass?"
"Can't you tell? Check out the this Dumbass."
A few minutes to check out the Dumbass, followed by...
"Oh, how right you are. That's a Dumbass!"
The Dumbass often does not realize that he has been identified as a Dumbass, because he is a Dumbass. This is perilous for the Dumbass, because at this point, he lives like a snail on a straight razor, and his fate is not in his own hands. Those who have determined he is a Dumbass have the power to expose him as the Dumbass to a large portion of the public. The decision whether or not to expose the Dumbass is left to whoever has identified him as the Dumbass, not up to the Dumbass. He who has identified the Dumbass may expose the Dumbass at a time, place and setting of his own choosing. Whether he chooses to do this is never known by the Dumbass, who lives with threat of exposure of his Dumbassedness for time immemorial. Only the possible benevolence of the one who has identified the Dumbass can save the Dumbass from exposure.
The Dumbass often does not realize that he has been studied, as in the case of a Harvard/Yale study that took five years at a cost of $1 million. The determination of learned minds, upon analysis and incontrovertible evidentiary conclusion, is that the Dumbass is a Dumbass. Therefore, it is thus and decided: He is the Dumbass. At such point, there is nothing the Dumbass can do. He is the Dumbass and nothing he does or says can relieve him of the burden of Dumbassedness. All future attempts to speak, write, mock, belittle, make fun of, criticize, lamely try to be smart, make bad attempts at humor, copy, plagiarize and generally communicate with the world in any way simply magnifies his Dumbassedness. The Dumbass at this point has no choice whatsoever except to crawl into a hole and withdraw from all contact with the world, which is best left to those who can think, analyze and through excellence make the world at least safe for Dumbasses, who in olden times were tortured and met bad fates in non-American countries that were wickedly prejudiced against Dumbasses along with sex deviants, child molesters, and those deemed to be undesirable characters of poor morality.
Unfortunately, the fact that the Dumbass has been identified and now has knowledge that he is the Dumbass will probably not stop him from further action which identifies him as the Dumbass. This is because he is a stupid Dumbass. This makes him a sitting duck, because the facts are now known. Intelligent humans now know what to look for and how to determine who is the Dumbass. The instant he pops his head out of the shadows and makes any attempt at interaction, it is simply determined as fact that he is the Dumbass. He has been branded, and therefore it is.
The Dumbass resorts to drastic action, attempting to jealously bring down or reduce to his level those who are superior to him. Sometimes this leads the Dumbass to insanity or even suicide, but despite his human branding as Dumbass For Life, hope remains eternal even for the Dumbass, who despite everything is loved by God and forgiven by Christians even if though he has been identified as the Dumbass. The song "Amazing Grace" was about a Dumbass who, despite being wretched, was saved. The tricky part is for the Dumbass to recognize that he must ask for forgiveness, but God in his wisdom usually provides him just enough light to see Truth!
