Man who solved Facebook puzzle ‘may not be in intellectual top two per cent’

A MAN considered to have an elite-level intellect after solving a Facebook word puzzle may be a fraud, it has emerged. 

Wayne Hayes believed himself up there with Einstein, Tim Berners-Lee and Gail Trimble after deciphering the puzzle in which some words were jumbled up, but recent evidence has put that in doubt.

Wife Michelle said: “Wayne contacted the World Economic Forum offering to sort out capitalism and climate change simultaneously, which he considered a little beneath him, but they didn’t accept his qualifications.

“While he put calls in to NASA, GlaxoSmithKline, Apple and the Bilderberg Group I did some research and it turns out reading ‘If yuo cna raed thsi, yuo hvea a spceial brian’ doesn’t even get you in Mensa.

“Wayne then did another one where he spotted which sheep was actually a cloud but that’s not recognised by any official governing body either. There’s a real risk he could still be thick.”

Hayes said: “I’m gutted. I really thought I was making progress on that unified field theory. I’m starting to think the whole thing might be bollocks, but that’s just me being stupid.”
