A super genius goes in to see a doctor. "Doc," the genius says, "I think I'm too smart. I'm having trouble even communicating with people because we have no common frame of reference, and it's ruining my social life. Can anything be done?"
The doctor runs a series of tests on the genius, and indeed finds that he is too smart. He says, "Currently, your IQ is 250, which is vastly superior to an average man. This is why you are having trouble communicating. I do have a cure, however. I have a machine that will drain away some of your intelligence, leaving you with an IQ of 160. You'll still be a genius, but you should be able to lead a normal life as well."
The genius immediately agrees to the treatment, so the doctor straps him into the machine.
Just as the doctor turns on the device, he gets a phone call from his ex-wife. They have a heated phone conversation for several minutes before the doctor remembers his patient. He rushes back, and is shocked when he sees the IQ readout at 75.

The former genius just stares blankly.
The doctor shakes him, saying, "Say something."
The former genius replies, "Can I interest you in a life insurance policy?"

Last night as I lay sleeping, I died, or so it seemed,
Then I went to heaven, but only in my dream.
Up there, St. Peter met me, standing at the pearly gates,
He said, "I must check your record, please stand here and wait."
He turned and said, "Your record is covered with terrible flaws,
On Earth, I see you rallied for every losing cause.
I see that you drank alcohol and smoked and used drugs too.
Fact is, you've done everything a good person should never do.
We can´t have people like you up here, your life was full of sin,"
Then he read the last of my record, took my hand and said, "Come in."
He led me up to the big boss and said, "Take him in and treat him well,
He used to work in insurance. He's done his time in hell."
