You can't teach stupid. But, you can take a video of it with your phone. Behold this woman who thought it would be a good idea to pet a bison at Yellowstone National Park.

About 18 seconds in, the bison shows his or her displeasure at the pet attempt. The super genius lady then decided to have another go. That didn't go well either.

Perhaps this lady should do a little research and find out what can happen when a bison takes a dislike to you. Unless you're a buffalo whisperer like this guy, don't pet the animals at Yellowstone. And, even if you are, don't do it.
