It’s More Moronic Madness, Yes, It’s Quiz Show Monday!

“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

So how many idiots got elected last week? Not all of them I hope, but I bet there are at least a few intellectually challenged newbees in the corridors of power in Washington. 

On the lighter side, some of those who didn’t make it in politics made it on to television and appeared in quiz shows.

The results are not that much different to some of the dumb things said in Congress (oh, oh, I feel another post forming in my head) so here is a selection to get the week started with a smile.

Enjoy!

  1. Hey! Now you had some ringers in there. They DO use SUVs in the Tour De France – where do you think the cameras go? And you CAN get a 1 and 9 in craps – just pull out your D&D 10-sided dice! And after all, isn’t the present fairly modern, and thus presentism and modernism be the same thing?
    Though I think we should officially get that “you scream” chant OFFICIALLY changed to end in Jim Beam. “Ice cream’s a dream, but liquor is quicker!” 😀

  2. Loved the 2 Ronnies! Having suffered through 5 eye operations between the ages of 6 & 12, plus having glasses on my face as a toddler, with blacked out lens & on & on & on, I can certainly relate to this comedy sketch.

    • Thanks for the comment. Glad you enjoyed the 2 Ronnies, they are a big favorite of mine. Sounds as if you had a tough time when you were a kid, I wouldn’t like one op let alone 5!
