Move over Miss South Carolina, here are some of the stupidest ever quiz answers:
Question: What was Gandhi's first name? Contestant's answer: Goosey Goosey.
Warning to all those know-alls who shout at the television screen when contestants offer dumb answers to blindingly obvious questions -- one day that could be you. [...]
Here are leading contenders for the "Dumb Down" gold medal:
Presenter: Name a film starring Bob Hoskins that is also the name of a famous painting by Leonardo da Vinci
Contestant: Who Framed Roger Rabbit?
Presenter: How long did the Six-Day War between Egypt and Israel last?
Contestant: (after long pause) Fourteen days
Presenter: Johnny Weissmuller died on this day. Which jungle-swinging character clad only in a loin cloth did he play?
The answers were supposedly compiled by a website JumpingJacksBar.com, but as of the writing of this post, the domain name expired and a spammy placeholder has taken its place. Ironic, but somewhat appropriate for a website dedicated to dumb moments.
They also have a number of YouTube videos showing these. My favorite would probably be the "A GROUP OF PILL PUSHERS" one from Wheel of Fortune.
