MASTIC BEACH, N.Y. – Lord knows we have featured hundreds of morons on this site and there are times in which I think people just cannot get any dumber. Then I come across gems like 21-year-old Stephanie Benatatos and her 24-year-old boyfriend, Zifiris “John” Valsamis. This couple needed a plan to get some fast cash so the two dopes put their heads together, squeezed their eyes shut real tight, huffed, grunted and pushed with all their might. To their surprise a little, stinky nugget popped out. This great idea consisted of Benatatos calling her mother and telling her that she and Valsamis had been kidnapped by men in an SUV. Shortly after, Zifiris called Benatato’s mother and told her that the kidnappers had released him so he could collect the $400 he owed them for drugs. If he did not pay them, they would hurt her daughter. After that call, Benatatos dialed 911 to bolster their beautiful plan but Seventh Squad detectives smelled the tiny turd. After questioning the couple, the entire kidnapping was deemed a hoax. The couple were both charged with attempted grand larceny in the 2nd degree and conspiracy in the 5th degree.

  • dallas

    Dumb and dumber. She should have used her biological pocket, could have made four hundred bucks in just days!

  • KyFyre

    Are we sure they aren't siblings? They sorta look an awfully lot alike. And I have to ask, couldn't he decide which way to look? Most people look either straight ahead, or off to the side but this man is talented enough he's doing both.

  • guillotinegirl

    The obvious question here is who would pay $400 for the return of these two imbeciles? Paying $400 to keep them away would be a wiser investment. Even if they weren't afraid to make $5 the hard way, it would still take these lameasses months to come up with that kind of cash on their own.

  • AMGallagher

    Wow- they are as stupid as they look!

  • thehesbomb

    Bwahaha – $400?!?! I guess ya get what you pay for!

  • shyloh

    $400.00, that's it? I guess they didn't think they were worth more than $200.00 each.

  • popeyeray

    She should have just spread her legs like any skank, and a little, stinky nugget would have popped out.

  • bornsavinglives

    XI love you Morbid, you are amazing!X

    It is almost sad what they think there worth. Should I fake my own kidnapping I would hold out for more than that … *tuttut*

  • lisaann1979

    “Are we sure they aren't siblings?” just wanted to add “or the products of siblings?”
