NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report) – A new study released Tuesday indicates that wearing glasses does not make a person look smarter, but standing next to Texas Governor Rick Perry does.
In the study, when participants were shown photos of a person with and without glasses, they registered little or no change in their view of the person's intelligence.
However, when the photo of the same person was juxtaposed with a photo of Governor Perry, participants suddenly said that the person looked "much smarter" or "brilliant," with some participants even using the phrase "like a genius."
According to Davis Logsdon, who conducted the survey for the University of Minnesota, the results could be a game changer in the strategies people use to look smarter. "For people trying to appear more intelligent, it turns out that the must-have accessory is not glasses; it's Rick Perry," he said.
