Now that I know how clever some animals are, that creates a certain dilemma eating pork. Oh well, I'll get over it.

I only see seven entries in this list? And it misses African grey parrot, the species the most intelligent non-human specimen known came from.

1 - Humans
2 - Chimps
3 - Dolphins
4 - Elephants
5 - Cephalopds
6 - Crows
7 - Squirrels
8 - Dogs
9 - Cats
10 - Pigs

I guess crows represent "all smart birds", dolphins are "all whales", and chimps are "all non-human apes". (I have to think gorillas are smarter than some of the others on this list.) It doesn't make sense that they went with cephalopods as a whole, rather than one species. At least they didn't try to sneak cows in, or I would lose all respect for them.

PS: And where are foxes, amiright?

In Oz we have a saying that the only thing dumber than sheep are the folk who farm them. And we should know - Australia was of course 'raised on the sheeps back'

Not having recently checked on this world record breaking thread, I believe, from memory, it is now behooven on me to include the words 'bacon' and 'cheese' to make my post legitimate
When I as at high school I had a classmate whose family own a lot of the sheep in South Australia. In year 12 we did maths where the problems are set up to have answers -1, 0, or 1. Often we would hear him appealing for a mark upgrade on the grounds that he "was only 1 out". He never prevailed, to our pleasure.

Ooops (maybe) ... is this better?

PS - "mode" means fashion in French, thus the bow tie (I think).
