Just for Fun: April 2006 Archives

Collective apology owed

|

Remember all those Polish jokes growing up? You know what I mean... solar-powered flashlights, submarines with screen doors, etc. In the marketplace of ethnic jokes, the Polish (or "Polaks") had a monopoly on being called stupid.

Well, it turns out that Poland is Europe's third smartest country, trailing only Germany and the Netherlands with an average IQ of 106 as measured in a new study.

Here's the story from the UK's Times.

(France ranks 19th with an average of 94, right between Greece and Bulgaria, for those of you given to gloating.)

I wouldn't gloat too much, though. This was a study of Europe only, and really, do we want to know where America would rank?
