Village idiots are living in fear following a sharp rise in anti-stupidic incidents across the country, it has emerged.
While stupidity had become more accepted in recent years, there is now evidence of an increase in negative sentiment against the intellectually challenged.
While public mocking has not yet become commonplace, more people now feel comfortable expressing anti-stupidic opinions.
However, it is still not socially acceptable or politically correct to express anti-stupidic points of view.
Labour MP Emily Thornberry was even forced to issue a denial this week following accusations that she called a large section of the electorate “stupid”.
Asked if she secretly harbours anti-stupidic views, she replied: “That’s so not true, I love stupid people just as much as intelligent people. Don’t ask me stupid questions!”
However, Norfolk chief village idiot Bubba Spuckler is not convinced.
He said: “I’m pretty sure she doesn’t have our best interests at heart, she failed to show up at our annual convention again this year, despite our best efforts to invite her. We sent her one of our special invitation letters in August, written in chocolate ink.”
He warned that if anti-stupidism continues to rise, it could spell the end of the centuries-old village idiot lifestyle that has prospered throughout the UK “for at least the last 20 years or so”.
“Many idiots have already chosen to go into hiding (some in fridges) and many more could easily follow. We really don’t know what the future holds for us,” he said.
