Significant others can indeed be a blessing, making life so much easier and happier. However, in the case of these straightforwardly stupid and childish, yet funny partners - this is not always true. Boyfriends who mistake pistachio nut shells for seashells as a gift for a girlfriend, lock their padlock keys together with the padlock or even make a sandwich with the plastic wrapper still on cheese. These anecdotes are only a part of a long list of good-for-nothing partners, that goes from funny to hilarious.

If you can relate to anything on this list, then I'm sorry to break it to you, but you have a boyfriend who's probably an idiot. However, don't despair, as you will see from these funny boyfriend quotes and pictures compiled by Bored Panda, it is not you alone who suffers from a discouraging partner. Someone who suffers from short-time memory loss, bouts of stupidity, selective hearing problems or even slowly turning into a meme. From funny boyfriends who think World War One started on 9/11 to girlfriends bearing dog cookies as gifts for their boyfriends, this collection of epic partner fails will make you realize that there's always somebody dumber than you. Don't forget to vote for the funniest boyfriend memes!

I found my dad eating some beef jerky once. It was near where we kept the dog food in the closet. I thought the picture of a dog on the packaging would have clued him in. When I told him they were for the dog, he paused, and shrugged his shoulders and kept eating.

I don't blame him for throwing it away "stale" or not. Treats like those are nothing but chemicals. Higher quality treats maybe expensive, but it's worth it. And in my defense, I had a dog with food sensitivities & couldn't eat them.

I used to much on Liv-A-Snaps back in the day when they were around. My friends used to try to trick me and put cream cheese on them. I'd bite into one and go... "Mmmmmm... Liv-A-Snaps." Last laugh achieved.

Dan Davis

Sadly I once took a bite from a cookie that was on a table in front of a Christmas tree my friends were about to decorate. That said cookie was a Christmas Ornament that had been in her family for three generations. It had been shellacked and preserved after her great great grandmother had baked it over 100 years ago. I thought it was disgusting until later I realized what I had done. My most embarrassing moment ever since. i put the cookie back on the plate with one leg missing. Yep, it was a snowman.

Bridget Smith

My dog loved them. 8 years later and Grandpa's not around anymore, but that dog sure is! It was a funny moment though. I don't think the packaging has changed. It's got a little cartoon dog on the front. I remember​ just laughing, explaining to him that he just ate dog treats. His response was his usual, hearty, "HAH!"

Heather

I't does sound cute. And the package is the same. My dogs loved them too. Her body didn't. She's break out in pimples and have diarrhea. I should explain, she was a Chinese Created, a hairless dog. And before you all crucify me for having a purebred where we manipulate their genes for looks, my dog was a rescue. And she had leg calves pyrthees(not sure of spelling) She could pass this trait to her pups. Breeding her was not a responsible option, so the breeder have her to me for free. She was a friend of the vet I worked for at the time.

Many years ago they made these dog treats that were called "People Crackers." They came in a little box with a handle like animal crackers and were shaped like mailmen and other humans. They were sitting on the table in our den and my grandfather picked them up and started eating them. Our dog was staring at him, looking confused, and he said, "These cookies are stale."
