Uh… Research?

There’s this quiz on the radio (Cool FM) that I listen to in the mornings on the way back from dropping V at nursery.  

I’m not sure if it’s on every morning or just certain days of the week – I haven’t quite figured it out yet.

Anyway, I quite enjoy it.

Don’t ask me why, I couldn’t really tell you.  Maybe I take pleasure in the fact that I actually KNOW the answers to some of the questions!  

There are, however, a few things that I’ve heard on the show that have really really bugged me over the last few days.

The first thing is that I’ve heard the same set of questions being asked during the course of one week.

Secondly…  Here are questions they’ve asked…

In which country is the CITY of Texas?

Which AMERICAN artist sang Candle in the Wind?

Which of the following is not an instrument violin, tenor or cello? 

Now there’s nothing wrong with the last question.  But he pronounced cello, “seelo”

For crying out loud – it’s a radio show!

Does no one research the questions?  Don’t they check their facts?

And the worst part is, they’re teaching people who may not know the answers to these questions THE WRONG THING!

I’m so annoyed.
