I am a fan of the TV programme Pointless. It takes a bit of getting in to but it’s well worth the effort I think. For those of you who haven’t seen it – the contestants are given a subject and they have to come up with the most obscure answer possible. For example – if the subject is name a country beginning with the letter ‘E’ it would be no good saying England. It would be far better to say Eritrea.
Anyway – one show last week was to name a First-Class Cricket-playing county. Now I suppose it’s fair to say that not all men would be able to name all eighteen of them and the ladies would score less as cricket is beyond most women’s ken!
Anyway – this stupid fucking woman was asked to name a 1st class cricket playing county and she gave one of the stupidest answers ever given on a TV Game show – “Twickenham”.
It beggars belief to think that a person could reach middle-age and think Twickenham was a county.
