Could we BEEEE any more stupid?

I spent a lot of time debating "more stupid" vs. "stupider".  I settled for"more stupid", but I'm not really convinced.  There are only two syllables, and I think the rule is three or more constitute using more/most for the comparison/superlative: e.g. important, expensive, intelligent, etc.  Thoughts?

Anyway, here is my stupidness story:

Blaise had been sleeping anywhere from 12-14 hours at night - really closer to 14 than 12. Starting last week he all of a sudden starting getting up everyday after <= 12 hours of sleep. The biggest problem was that all this getting up was happening around 6ish instead of our more comfortable (see 3+ syllables) 7:30ish.  One day we even heard him at 4:45!!

Wondering where all this getting up early was coming from??

THERE WAS AN ALARM IN HIS ROOM GOING OFF AT 6:00 ALL WEEK!!!!!!

We rectified the situation and there has been an improvement.  Seriously, ever heard of anything so stupid??

I seem to remember a certain alarm clock that used to go off at random times such as 2:30 am..."Morning Grommit, time for walkies..."!

Ha ha ha!!!! That's hilarious!! At least you now realize there was a reason for his early wake-up times. Too funny!!

And regarding the "more stupid" comment, I think you had it right.
