“People have ideas all the time, ambition is just the stubbornness to follow through.” – Daniel Fogg, 2001

“Ignorance, lack of common sense, and downright inhuman stupidity run rampant in this country and around the world. I watch people, and I hear stories, and they beg, beg, beg to be mocked and ridiculed. So I created a forum for people to do that.”

Weirder Than Marshmallows showcases tales of stupidity and ignorance in the hopes of making people laugh. “People can submit the bare details,” said Fogg. “I’ll turn it into a story, sticking to the facts they give me and adding my own commentary.”

Stories are divided into five categories. Do Not Stop on Tracks showcases warnings that should never have to be warned. Intelligent Life? lets people expose the blunders of their families and friends. En Masse contains stories of mass ignorance. Technology Sucks! explores the hazards of the technological age. That’s Just Freaky features Twilight Zone like tales of paranormality.

All the stories on the site are true. That’s what makes the concept attention grabbing. “Anybody can make up strange stories, writers do it all the time. That’s why people love Stephen King, his stories are downright weird. But these are real, they actually happened, to relatively normal human beings. There’s no fiction on my site.”
