Peter Baimbridge, a MENSA spokesperson, created a bit of a stir in the UK. ?The BBC has had to apologise to its viewers as a result

Peter Baimbridge made the comments while being interviewed on BBC Breakfast, sparking complaints from viewers.

He was being asked about the effectiveness of IQ tests at judging intelligence.

“So most IQ tests will have Mr and Mrs Average scoring 100 and the higher you get, the brighter you are. And if your IQ is somewhere around 60 then you are probably a carrot,” Baimbridge said.
