Yes because we all know that the hallmark of a genuinely high IQ is the act of making public statements regarding the much smaller IQs of those around you. Congratulations, you passed the test and now you can join the genius illuminati. Just remember, whenever you come across anything that doesn't particularly drainage with your beliefs, you go straight for the Jugular Vein Of All Egos... the IQ! Once you've made disparaging remarks about their IQ, everyone around will immediately realize that they are in the presence of a true genius! Because only a genius could detect someone's IQ based on reading a few paragraphs...
So, its either, you're a complete and total jackass, or, you have special genius powers... And I refuse to be the type of person who would ever say such a rude thing like that you're a scared, insecure, fragile person who cannot make it through the day without dumping all of your frustrations out on some random person who did no harm to you or anyone and I feel really bad for you because it must really really really suck to be you because I could not imagine ever feeling the need to treat somebody like dirt for no reason. I refuse to ever say anything like that to you, so, the easiest thing for me to do is to just assume that you must be a supergenius!
Now when I get in bed with my wife, I can say "Well gee willikers dear, I don't know about you, but I sure had one heck of an interesting day! There I was going about my business, when all the sudden, there it was! A real true to life supergenius!"
Then maybe she will say "Oh Jack, you and your tall tales! When will you ever quit with that silliness??"
And perhaps I might then reply "No, this time I mean it! I mean...gee whiz honey, you shoulda SEEN the way this master of intellect handled a situation with this fella who he or she disagreed with! It was so clever, I can't quite remember what he/she said, but the jist of it was 'You have a low IQ'... I know, genius, right?? I NEVER would have thought of that! Only a true master would see that the best tactics come from the elementary school playground! And, of course, his/her opponent immediately gave up and said 'You know what, you're absolutely right. I do have a very low IQ. Thank you for sharing your wisdom with me, I'm gonna change from now on!' Oh, Katherine, if only I could handle every situation like that... But, I just can't help it... I'm stupid. I have these pesky annoyances called morals, manners, and respect that keep me from making the leaps and bounds necessary to conduct myself as a true genius. Ah, well, at least I am blessed to be able to watch from the sidelines while geniuses of such a caliber do their good works."
I wish I could add that laughing face instead of just a star. Funny funny

Yes . . . I have seen both Prince Chuckles and Barry-OH . . . and I notice that both of them have very big ears.
I find that, in conjunction with all this end-o-the-world stuff to be very very . . . ear-ie.
This will have to be cleared up for the Americans. I think but really have no idea that the shop called Asda is a low end like perhaps Walmart type while the other Waitrose is more like Neiman Marcus.

The queen shops in Asda ! she must be cutting back a few penny this year. I thought she would be more of the Waitrose sort of shopper or at lest let her butler jeeves do it for her.
