Trivia in Great Britain

   As I was researching the net I found some amusing sites devoted to Trivia or Game Shows in Great Britain. People call in to answer the questions, but I don't think these particular people made much money from their insight. These questions and answers are courtesy of zipadeeday.com.

     Host: Where do you think Cambridge University is?
     Contestant: Geography isn't my strong point.
     Host: There is a clue in the title...
     Contestant: Leicester?

    And here's another winner...

     Host: Who had a worldwide hit with "What A Wonderful World?"
     Contestant:  I don't know.
     Host: I'll give you some clues. What do you call the part between your hand and your elbow?
     Contestant: Arm
     Host: And if you're not weak, you're ...
     Contestant: Strong!
     Host: Correct! And what was Lord Mountbatten's first name?
     Contestant: Louis!
     Host: There we are then. So who had a worldwide hit with the song "What a Wonderful World?"
     Contestant: Frank Sinatra?

Two more!

     Host: Which American actor is married to Nicole Kidman?
     Contestant: Forrest Gump?

     Host: How long did the Six Day War last between Egypt and Israel?
     Contestant: (after long pause) Fourteen days.


At least I feel smarter now!
