You may have never heard of the movie Idiocracy because Fox has done all it can to not promote it when it was released last year.
The movie is about an average man and prostitute who hibernate for 500 years in a military pod experiment. When they wake up, the president-elect is a former porn star and the most popular television program is called Ouch My Balls, about a guy who keeps getting hit in the balls. The hibernators have become the two smartest humans on the planet now that the average IQ has dipped to around 50 points. Intelligent yuppies failed to procreate.
I suppose Fox didn’t want to publicize this movie because they would be making fun of the less-than-intellectual audience they entertain with such fine programming as Fox News and American Idol, but you can get the movie on DVD or download it using BitTorrent. It’s very funny, created by the same guy who made Office Space. Don’t read too many reviews because they give away a lot of the good jokes.
I like to argue that the dumbening of human beings has long ago begun. For ample evidence, go into any Walmart or highway rest stop.
