P Diddy has been labelled one of the dumbest people in the US. He came 12th in Mad Magazine's annual list of the country's 20 dumbest people. The rapper was nominated for changing his name from Puff Daddy to P Diddy. The list was topped by the Reverend Jerry Falwell, who blamed the September 11 attacks in part on "abortionists, feminists, gays, and lesbians." Mad's co-editor John Ficarra told Clickmusic.com: "We thought Falwell had reached his personal pinnacle of dumbness a few years ago when he accused the Teletubbies of promoting homosexuality - we underestimated him."
