How to use idiot in a sentence?

  1. Chris Fox:

    Every time I think about it, it makes me sick to my stomach. It’s horrible, because he’s an innocent bear minding his own business, just searching for food. Never got into trouble, never harmed anybody and you have this idiot who tracked him to hunt him, to kill him.

  2. Tom Zegan:

    Whoever said "Better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all" was an idiot!

  3. Mitch Abrams:

    Alcohol doesn't make you an idiot. Alcohol makes it impossible to hide the fact that you're an idiot.

  4. Monica Padron:

    You'd be an idiot if you were the only one who didn't make the most of it, but it's not right. The president thinks only of the present. The next one will have to pay the price.

  5. Mike Hughes:

    If you’re not scared to death, you’re an idiot, it’s scary as hell, but none of us are getting out of this world alive. I like to do extraordinary things that no one else can do, and no one in the history of mankind has designed, built and launched himself in his own rocket.
