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!

Well, hm, I'm not sure what's dumber, her actually thinking a cat gave her a gift or her parents actually backing her up

The Cappy

Or people actually thinking this is really how it went. Most likely it's a family with a dry sense of humor, and a newly ex boyfriend making a humor fail.

I have experience with these kind of people too. My older sister has a huge heart for animals and took in many rescues. That's great, but here's the weird part. She called her animals "my kids." She referred to her beloved black lab as her son. She was childless by choice, so it wasn't because she wanted to be a mother. Her husband would buy her cards and gifts from the pets for all occasions. It's weird to hear her talk Mother's Day cards and gifts. One Christmas she tried to make me feel bad because I didn't buy her pets presents. Wow.

Gotta relate this one: back in '77 I was having coffee on the ferry boat to Catalina with an old girlfriend. She was sweet but dumber than a banana, while I, the Physicist, have an IQ of 140. So we're sitting at the window with the ocean lapping just below the glass, and she asks me, "What altitude are we at?" I said, "Oh, I'd say about one foot." She went blank. I had to explain it to her. Hilarious!
