The Great American Stupidity Quiz By Best Week Ever panelist Adam Winer What's the capital of Canada? Who's the president pictured on the dime? Do you have even the slightest recollection of how to multiply fractions? LOS ANGELES, Aug. 19 /EMWNews/ -- The forthcoming book How Dumb Are You? The Great American Stupidity Quiz (National Lampoon Press: October 7) is loaded with questions every mildly-educated American should be able to answer -- but often can't. The hallowed tome was written by Adam Winer, a panelist on VH1's hit pop culture comedy show Best Week Ever and a freelance writer whose work has appeared in such publications as Wired, ESPN the Magazine, Men's Journal and Maxim. In addition to its quiz questions, How Dumb Are You? also includes intriguing bonus trivia and groundbreaking metrics that scientifically measure a reader's exact level of stupidity. Prior to publication, each question in How Dumb Are You? was inflicted upon a test audience to gauge what percentage of people answer it correctly. Those stats are included in the book, allowing readers to measure, on a question-by-question basis, exactly how poorly they stack up against their fellow Americans. The results from this original sample testing are a Pulitzer-worthy story unto themselves. For example, 54 percent of Americans couldn't identify the president pictured on the dime. (Hint: It's Franklin Roosevelt.) Meanwhile, 82 percent completely forget what Germany and the other bad guys were named in WWI. (Second hint: The Central Powers.) More of these stats are available upon request. Undoubtedly, How Dumb Are You? will become the most talked about literary work of the modern age. You should probably cover it.

About the Author: Adam Winer is a panelist on VH1's hit pop culture gigglefest Best Week Ever. Not that that in any way qualifies him to pen an intelligence quiz. Thankfully, he is also a former editor of FHM men's magazine, which proves that he is both a wordsmith and a scholar. ABOUT NATIONAL LAMPOON National Lampoon, Inc.
