Thought of as the intellectual in the Stollop family, which is saying something. He waits a full second to consider the intellectual validity of Mr Nutt's excited theory likening football fans to laboratory rats, before clobbering him.
In the Daniel Keyes story Flowers for Algernon, the main character Charlie is introduced as a janitor with intellectual disabilities. Charlie undergoes a procedure which makes him freakishly intelligent. That procedure had originally been tested on a lab mouse named Algernon. For both Algernon and Charlie, the super intelligence is temporary; both revert to their previous, Stollop-like state.
