Today is Dunce Cap Day! The Dunce Cap was invented by a man who went by the name of "John", because that was his name. John Duns Scotis thought that the cap would increase intelligence in those that seemed to lack it by allowing the knowledge to flow from the tip of the cap and trickle down onto the wearer's head. Why is knowledge flowing out of the top? I dunno. That's just weird. anyway, it kinda backfired on the people wearing it, because everyone then knew how dumb they were. And that is why the dunce cap is now seen as a symbol of low intelligence. You can celebrate by making a make-shift dunce cap and either wearing it yourself, or you can do what I did and put it on someone else.
