“And what I want — and this is what makes me super evil — is to enforce my will on the inhabitants of this planet. I want power, I want control. I want things to go exactly how I want, when I want, for as long as I want.
Basically, I want to be two years old forever.”
– Oliver Watson in I Am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want To Be Your Class President (Josh Lieb)
More from him:
“I freely admit that I’m evil. At least, I freely admit it when I’m alone and no one can hear me. That doesn’t mean I torture kittens or plot the genocide of entire continents of people; that’s insanity, not evil. And insanity is just what we call stupidity when it doesn’t make sense.
“You don’t have to be a genius when you are surrounded by morons.”
I liked this book so much, if only for it’s unexpected hilarious take on bullying and getting bullied, the pleasure of outwitting everyone and falling flat on your face the next moment.
