Which TV programme was this, Longdong? I'd like to watch it.
There was another I remember some time ago on Tipping Point:

Q. What is Spanish for beer?

A. Beero?

It was on tipping point, not necessarily known for hilarious answers but the questions are mostly easy.

Made me laugh anyway.
Thanks. I see it's just started on ITV, so I've put it on to record and I'll watch it later.

Just to clear (I'm sure you are) those answers were on Friday's episode.

Re: Heard on a TV quiz yesterday...

I was watching that too LD. Unbelievable!
Mind you I blame a lot of the silliest of simplest maths answers on calculators and the fact that kids at school these days can use them. No wonder young people have no maths skills at all.

It seems those who should be the most intelligent according to their job title always give the worst answers.

Re: Heard on a TV quiz yesterday...

Yes, I watched it and, apart from a few incorrect answers, no glaring boo boos, except for:

Q: "On a traditional Irish Claddagh ring, which shape represents love?" (A heart)

A: "A circle."

Or much more ridiculously stupid:

Q: "Which artistic movement, that originated in Italy in the 14th century, takes its name from the French word for 'rebirth'?" (The Renaissance)

A: "The Can Can."

Well that was another hour or so that I'll never get back!

Yes that was also a great answer.
