Vote for me I'm an Idiot.

We’re fools, not knaves, is a hollow defence, Mr Bean | Martin Ivens - Times Online

"Humbly beg to report, sir, I’m an idiot,” was the excuse the good soldier Schweik gave his army superiors for breaches of discipline.

People who get a First Class Honours in Idiocy from the University of East Anglia are invited to conduct research at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research.

An Englishman who has actually read Švejk? Color me surprised... Politicians squealing when caught stealing? Nihil novum sub solum
