Corollary to Hanlons Razor

Hanlon's razor is an eponymous adage that allows the elimination of unlikely explanations for a phenomenon. It reads:
Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

The corollary is: The malicious will hire stupid fools to do their bidding.

Which then leads to: The first rule of choosing a a good stooge is to find one who for reasons of his own already wanted to do whatever it is you were to ask.

And therefore: Watch out for those who appoint stupid fools without a sound justification
