Um, so's the writer's

"NFL Rumors: Chad Johnson's intelligence questioned" is the headline at MSNBC's "Scuttlebutt" page:

Chad Johnson has mental agility of soap dish. Despite the fact that Chad Johnson has a bilingual nickname, one lawyer doesn’t think Ocho Cinco is very intelligent. A lawyer representing clients who are suing Johnson over raffle prizes they never received says that 86 has the “mental agility of a small soap dish," and that he doesn’t understand how Johnson could possibly learn a playbook.

My emphasis. Apparently, writer Patrick Dahl's intelligence ain't all that hot, either. "Ocho Cinco" means "85," not "86," but even if you didn't know the Spanish you'd expect a writer that covers football to know Johnson's number, wouldn't 'ya?
