I was most disappointed when I followed a link on the BBC entitled "High IQ link to being Vegetarian" and discovered to my chagrin that intelligence begets vegetarianism, not the other way around.
I have long held to the theory that vegetarians are cleverer than the average bod, you see. In my mind, it had something to do with having more time to read encyclopaedias thanks to the lack of meat comas brought on by a plate of chops and a quart of port. If they were intelligent before eschewing sausages, I'll have to revise my whole theory.
There lies the rub: I eat all manner of animal parts and am thus as thick as a hippy's beard. How on earth will I summon up the brain power to make the needed revisions?
