Why are the smart people NOT in charge?
Ok so yesterday i was watching the penguins of madagascar and kowalski made a REALLY good point: Why are the smart people not in charge? This is what he said: “In a way, it makes sense. You see, for a mammal, Maurice is extraordinarily intelligent. Meanwhile, Julien is extraordinarily…not.” *shows graph* “This red line shows the frustration levels of a really smart person forced to take orders from a dunderhead boob.

SOMETHING HAS GOT TO GIVE, PEOPLE! AM I THE ONLY ONE SEEING THIS?!?!”
