    Hahaha, bad line, did you say Israel.... lmao!

    Here in Holland we have this thing called the National IQ test, a televised IQ test which enables one to see how he or she compares to the rest of the nation. A well known singer called Bonny St. Clair was asked to work out a few very basic mathematics questions. She had problems telling how many sides there where to a square and how many people where in a duo. Se scored 54, which was even lower then the gorilla from the Amsterdam zoo, known for his abilities in throwing pooh

    Yeah there was a similar show here, it was more to show how intelligent we all are though, than to mock unintelligent celebrities
