Tis merely a matter of opinion, nothing to get worked up over.

No, stupidity is not even endearing! Do you know what the hell you are talking about?

The question was put as an open forum discussion topic. Closed answers such as "No" does nothing to support your point of view.

I don't think stupidity is endearing. At least I never found it endearing, especially if it's put on as a bid to impress. I don't see why people have to act stupid...

Children get to a certain age, and then parents often have to say " That's enough! A joke's a joke ..."

I will have to second that. I dont find it endearing at all either although sometimes if it isnt done to impress and they are just stupid (not acting, just plain stupid), you can lend a helping hand and pull them out of their "stupidity bubble" if it can be helped. If it is a friend or a family member, the bigger the reason to point it out (at the risk of offending them)...

A bit of "clowning around" or "acting the goat" is fine at the appropriate time, but not as a total substitute for intelligent humour or conversation

I hate it when people act stupid on purpose. And I have realized that not too many people share my opinion (although people here seem to understand thank god!). I've seen people rise to popularity when acting stupid... so NO DEFINITELY NOT ENDEARING.

There is a Chinese proverb, " Act like a pig in order to eat up the tiger".

It's so simple to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it!!!
