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!
