Riffing on Entertainment Weekly's recent list of Tinseltown's smartest people, the New York Daily News flipped the script and slapped together a list of the "Top 50 Dumbest People in Hollywood."

Top/bottom of the heap was Lindsay Lohan at number one, for lousy career choices, rampant misbehavior and bad taste in men. Hard to argue with them on any of those counts, but we're still rooting for LiLo to smarten up now that she has sobered up.

Also predictably landing in their top five was It boy Shia LaBeouf, "honored" for that inexplicable arrest stemming from his recent nocturnal Walgreens walkabout. Let's hope he gets it together.

Both Spencer Pratt and ladylove Heidi Montag make the list, but the mister lands in the top five for...well, if you watch The Hills, there really is no reason to explain.

If not quite dumb, their list is surely obvious, but we love to play along anyway, as it's nice to see it all compiled for us. But is the paper taking the easy way out, just turning the tables on someone who did all the hard work? Weigh in...
