The stupidest or most idiotic person in a particular village, as elected by the local populace. The kind who would steal all the sugar from an overturned lorry and go door-to-door trying to sell it.

Think Adrien Brody's character in M. Night Shyamalan's "the Village" (2004)

TRIVIA
"Idiot" was a category in the U.S. Census back during the 19th Century which refered to mental retardation.
In the episode of Ren and Stimpy "Magical Golden Singing Cheeses" (Air date: November 11th, 1994) Stimpleton comes across the Man Eating Village Idiot, owner of the (see title). The Village Idiot agrees to the trade, but threatens that unless Stimpleton can prove his stupidity in a "battle of witlessness" he will eat Stimpleton.
To make a long and greusome story short, Stimpleton wins the contest, leaving the Man Eating Village Idiot dead from his own stupidity.
