Not quite genius

It has been truly said that genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration.

A genius once observed that all motion is relative. After long perspiration, he published the Theory of Relativity.

An idiot, too, observed that all motion is relative. After no perspiration at all, he decided to brush his teeth by holding the toothbrush in one place and shaking his head back and forth.


  1. One can only hope that the small amount of perspiration involved in all that head-shaking propelled him a proportional distance out of idiocy.

  2. Stephen J. says

    My son brushes his teeth that way; it seems to be working so far at keeping his teeth in shape. (The fact that unlike most kids he doesn’t drink soda of any type at all, though, is probably helping more.)

  3. Carbonel says

    After 2+ years of slogging away at learning to do webcomics my “genius” is finally starting to show. The talent was always there. The skill? Not so much.
