Touque-Wearing Looney, Will You Please Go Now?

We may never know who in the world is the dumbest person. Contestants may be hiding their dimness under a bushel, which would imply enough intelligence to be disqualified from the competition. And every time we think we have found -- or become -- that person, someone always comes along with an overwhelming urge to one-up the putative winner.

But an unnamed Toronto resident is in the front of the pack, having complained to a local library that the Dr. Seuss book Hop on Pop promotes violent actions towards fathers. The library, in a display of wisdom one would hope to be universal, ignored the complaint.

Rumors that hopeful fathers bought every copy available in Toronto bookstores to present to their spouses while containing a card reading "Hint, hint!" are, as yet, unfounded.
