In what can only be described as a display of sheer idiocy, Bob Weir, the newly elected Gainesville District supervisor on the Prince William Board of County Supervisors, spent the entirety of his first meeting asking the most ludicrous questions imaginable. The move not only wasted everyone's time, but it also cemented Weir's status as a complete moron.
The meeting, which was supposed to cover important matters such as the budget and county infrastructure, quickly turned into a farce as Weir began his line of questioning. Some of his more memorable gems included:
"Excuse me, but can someone explain to me what this 'road' thing is that we keep hearing about?"
"Is it possible to have a bridge made out of cotton candy? That would be pretty sweet, don't you think?"
"I have a question about this 'budget' thing. Can we just buy whatever we want, or are there rules or something?"
At first, the other members of the board tried to answer Weir's questions politely and with a straight face. But as the meeting dragged on and Weir continued to spout off nonsensical queries, they began to realize that they were dealing with a complete and utter imbecile.
"I've never seen anything like it," said one board member who asked to remain anonymous. "I mean, I've dealt with some pretty stupid people in my time, but this guy takes the cake. It's like he's not even aware of how dumb he is."
As the meeting dragged on, tensions began to run high, with other board members rolling their eyes and muttering under their breath. Weir, meanwhile, remained blissfully unaware of the chaos he was causing.
At one point, board chair Ann Wheeler even tried to gently steer Weir back on track, saying, "I think we should focus on the matter at hand. We're discussing the county budget right now, remember?"
But Weir just stared blankly back at Wheeler and said, "Oh yeah, the budget. So can we use Monopoly money for that?"
In the end, the meeting lasted over four hours, with most of that time being wasted on Weir's ridiculous questions. As the other board members filed out of the room, they could be heard muttering to themselves about the disaster that had just unfolded.
"I don't know how we're going to get anything done with that guy on the board," said another board member. "But hey, at least he's good for a laugh."
Indeed, as long as Bob Weir remains in office, there will be no shortage of entertainment at county board meetings. And who knows? Maybe one day he'll even stumble onto a good idea. Or not.
