Men's Health magazine.

I was just looking around the land of blogs and one click took me to this news article;

Hull has been named as the stupidest place in Britain.

It is also the poorest and cheapest to live, according to a survey by Men's Health magazine. In contrast, Edinburgh is named as the cleverest city.

The survey took into account factors like exam results, the number of residents who studied at university level and performance in BBC IQ quiz Test The Nation.

Stoke and Liverpool are the next dumbest places, while Manchester is the rudest but best-dressed.

Stoke is the worst-dressed and Glasgow both the most drunken and most dangerous.

The survey also lists Liverpool as having the best sense of humour and Cardiff as being the most polite.

However, Hull residents might be forgiven for feeling a bit hard done by. Although they elected disaster-prone Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott as an MP, the city is also famous as the home of poets Philip Larkin and Andrew Marvell.

The top 10 stupidest places in Britain are:

1. Hull
2. Stoke
3. Liverpool
4. Bradford
5. Glasgow
6. Wolverhampton
7. Newcastle
8. Nottingham
9. Leicester
10. Birmingham

I'm sure all of the people who live in these places aren't stupid, maybe it's just the way others see them.
