A phrase often uttered by the female persuasion of the mind. Similar to clichés such as “Everything happens for a reason” and “Red rover, red rover. Send Jimmy on over.”. It is often elaborated on in order to describe a distasteful situation in an enlightening manner. As though such a thing were possible.
Judy - “I was defiled as a young woman and my father believed the boy’s account of the situation over mine. My grandpa went on to say I was just behaving like a stupid whore to other family members and the community at large. I still associate with my family members and will side with them above any outside influence because Ignorance is Bliss.”
Bill - “Judy would never admit to this because she is in an extreme state of self denial and/or Ignorance is Bliss.”
Stephen - “Bill slept with Judy while we were still together and no one has given an honest account of events. Turns out in my case, Ignorance is bliss. Save for the child.”
Child - “Please shoot yourselves in the head and spare my daddy and the following generations to come, who do not operate under moronic idioms such as Ignorance is Bliss.”
Judge - “If Ignorance is Bliss then there would be legal precedent to abolish the family court system. Can I get a ‘Ya!’ up in this biznitch?!”
