(ABC News) – Sixty-five per cent of Britons do not know in which US city the hit musical ‘Chicago’ is set in, a nationwide survey for an upcoming TV quiz show says. Another 57 per cent did not know where the celebrated television soap opera ‘Dallas’ was set, and two-thirds were equally at a loss to identify the city at the heart of the Roger Whittaker ballad ‘Streets of London’. The poll also indicated that 67 per cent of Britons do not know when World War II ended, 64 per cent did not know where the French Alps were, and 70 per cent did not know where the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra is based.
The answers, by the way, are Chicago, Dallas, London, 1945, France and Vienna.
But then I see a so-called simple quiz, with seemingly obvious answers, but get them all wrong. Den I nut feel so smaht. (Try it and see how many you get right).
I think we all have holes in our knowledge that, if exploited, make us look stupid, so my message to you is for the love of all that is holy, don’t let anyone know and keep on laughin’!
