****</> Just dug from “Dumb Britain: the funniest and most idiotic answers given on quiz shows“!
Fresh but true humo(u)r from our British friends: some are really knowledgeable about the world!
Alex Trelinski (Late Show, BBC Midlands): What is the capital of Italy?
Contestant: France. Alex: France is another country.
Try again. Contestant: Oh, um, Benidorm.
Alex: Wrong, sorry.
Let’s try another question. In which country is the Parthenon?
Contestant: Sorry, I don’t know.
Alex: Just guess a country.
Phil Wood (BBC Radio Manchester): What’s 11 squared?
Contestant: I don’t know.
Phil Wood: I’ll give you a clue. It’s two ones with a two in the middle.
Contestant: Is it five?
