The 10th century Mesopotamian scholar Ibn Hawqal, who wrote an “unfortunately lost” book about how Sicilians were all idiots because they ate raw onions, would have done very well for himself on Twitter:
"but the [Italians] wasted the land on cultivating onions, which they ate raw; the consequence was that one could not find any intelligent person…they were all idiots…
Ibn Hawkal was so incensed about this he actually wrote a whole book about Sicilian idiocy"@carltonautism pic.twitter.com/tQ7oRN8CXN

Okay, people, this is not actually a serious post about IQ or Sicilians or onions, it’s a joke about a certain personality type.
