Brainless bureaucracy

In a literal sense, the image above represents the skull case of a man born in France with very little brain.  By rights he ought to be dead or vegetative, at best a mental blank.  But he is none of those things.  The man in the image is 44, a father of two, with an IQ of 75 — exactly that of Forrest Gump.

And stupid is as stupid does.  We are told that the man with very little brain “holds a job in France as a civil servant.”  He was smart enough to find a place in the French bureaucracy, where the inertness of the workforce probably allows our man to shine by comparison.

The new French president, Nicolas Sarkozy, a man of very large brain, has stated:  “I can’t be criticized for wanting first place for France.”  But everything in France hinges on the government, and the government is run by a bureaucracy that, figuratively speaking, resembles the image at the top of this post.  (Via Creative Destruction.)
