SScientists around the world are struggling to make sense of strange information coming out of North Korea this afternoon after the average IQ of the entire nation dropped by a staggering 20% for a whole hour this afternoon. 

By odd coincidence the dumbing down of North Korea has coincided with a one hour visit by dayglo hairspay enthusiast, Donald Trump.

“It was really weird.” Professor of Idiocy, Dr Strangemitts, of Rochdale Community University told The Rochdale Herald. “For the first time in history we were able to watch an entire nation become significantly more stupid.”

“It was like those turtles or tortoises or whatever who were stuck on the Galapagos Islands without any contact with other turtles or tortoises or whatever and, like evolved differently or whatever.”

“We still haven’t worked out how the population of North Korea was measurably more ignorant this afternoon, but we think Donald Trump might have something to do with it.”

North Koreans are sitting down this evening to watch Love Island for the first time in their nation’s sorry history.
