The Worst (UK) Game Show Answers Ever

This list of hilarious answers to game show questions proves that American contestants aren't the only ones who fall apart under pressure. Here is a sample:
BEG, BORROW OR STEAL (BBC2)

Jamie Theakston: Where do you think Cambridge University is?

Contestant: Geography isn't my strong point.

Theakston: There's a clue in the title.

Contestant: Leicester.

PHIL WOOD SHOW (BBC GMR)

Wood: What 'K' could be described as the Islamic Bible?

Contestant: Er. . .

Wood: It's got two syllables . . . Kor . . .

Contestant: Blimey?

Wood: Ha ha ha ha, no. The past participle of run . . .

Contestant: (Silence.)

Wood: OK, try it another way. Today I run, yesterday I . . .

Contestant: Walked?

What's doubly funny is how the hosts try their best to help out a clueless contestant. Link -via Bits and Pieces

In a very similar vein, Private Eye magazine has a long running section titled "Dumb Britain", filled with dimwitted utterings from easy quiz shows.
