Stupid.

Well that puts me in my place:

According to a survey, Swindon is Britain’s most ignorant town. In a poll carried out for the BBC TV series QI, the town came an embarrassing last place. Its residents struggled to name the colour of oranges, were confused over the number of legs an octopus has and were unsure when Advent begins.

Though oddly:
Swindon...is also famed for having Britain’s most confusing road junction – consisting of five mini-roundabouts and nicknamed the Magic Roundabout.
So residents in Swindon who are apparently dumb are capable of using a roundabout which everyone else who's more brainy than them finds confusing? Hmm there's a contradiction in there somewhere.

I wonder if this man comes from Swindon?
