    Positively overqualified in the IQ sector to be a parking/smoking/social behaviour/dog warden in the UK. Reminds me of the brilliant Homer Simpson MRI scan.

    Actually this gentleman would be a much better person to have in government service than someone with an I.Q. over 75.

    Someone with a high (or even normal) I.Q. will be able to think up a lot of new schemes and convince people of their utility.
