Man, I honestly hope, for the future of humanity as a whole that she was just out for a giggle or something. I mean, 10 seconds of fame etc...

Does anyone have a link to the video?

Internet wrote:
NEW YORK - Idaho resident Kathy Evans brought humiliation to her friends and family Tuesday when she set a new standard for stupidity with her appearance on the popular TV show, "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."
It seems that Evans, a 32-year-old wife and mother of two, got stuck on the first question, and proceeded to make what fans of the show are dubbing "the absolute worst use of lifelines ever."

After being introduced to the show's host Meredith Vieira, Evans assured her that she was ready to play, whereupon she was posed with an extremely easy $100 question. The question was:

"Which of the following is the largest?"
A) A Peanut
B) An Elephant
C) The Moon
D) A Kettle?

Immediately Mrs. Evans was struck with an all consuming panic as she realized that this was a question to which she did not readily know the answer.

"Hmm, oh boy, that's a toughie," said Evans, as Vieira did her level best to hide her disbelief and disgust. "I mean, I'm sure I've heard of some of these things before, but I have no idea how large they would be."

Evans made the decision to use the first of her three lifelines, the 50/50. Answers A and D were removed, leaving her to decide which was bigger, an elephant or the moon. However, faced with an incredibly easy question, Evans still remained unsure.

"Oh! It removed the two I was leaning towards!" exclaimed Evans. "Darn. I think I better phone a friend."

Using the second of her two lifelines on the first question, Mrs. Evans asked to be connected with her friend Betsy, who is an office assistant.

"Hi Betsy! How are you? This is Kathy! I'm on TV!" said Evans, wasting the first seven seconds of her call. "Ok, I got an important question. Which of the following is the largest? B, an elephant, or C, the moon. 15 seconds hun."

Betsy quickly replied that the answer was C, the moon. Evans proceeded to argue with her friend for the remaining ten seconds.

"Come on Betsy, are you sure?" said Evans. "How sure are you? Puh, that can't be it."

To everyone's astonishment, the moronic Evans declined to take her friend's advice and pick 'The Moon.'

"I just don't know if I can trust Betsy. She's not all that bright. So I think I'd like to ask the audience," said Evans.

Asked to vote on the correct answer, the audience returned 98% in favor of answer C, 'The Moon.' Having used up all her lifelines, Evans then made the dumbest choice of her life.

"Wow, seems like everybody is against what I'm thinking," said the too-stupid-to-live Evans. "But you know, sometimes you just got to go with your gut. So, let's see. For which is larger, an elephant or the moon, I'm going to have to go with B, an elephant. Final answer."
Evans sat before the dumbfounded audience, the only one waiting with bated breath, and was told that she was wrong, and that the answer was in fact, C, 'The Moon.'

Thankyou SF, I had started searching as your reply came in.. from the site you sent I quote:
http://www.hoax-slayer.com/current-issue.html#one wrote:
However, the incident described never happened. The article originates from BSNews.org, a satirical website that features fake news items on a variety of subjects. Within their original context, it should be clear to even gullible readers that the articles are satirical in nature and are not intended to be taken seriously. Even the name of the site (BS News) should alert astute visitors to its true nature. Moreover, the site includes the following disclaimer on its "About" page:


I had checked Snopes.com but I didn't see it - I guess they are a bit behind the times now.

<br>What's all the fuss about?

Everybody knows an elephant is bigger than the Moon. You just ask that nice Tom Hanks from Apollo 13. He covered it (the Moon) with his thumb, so he should know. Unless he's got the mother of all thumbs of course.

Nothing stupid noted. She won 32,000

Quote:

The photograph included with the message is a doctored adaptation of a legitimate screenshot from the UK version of "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". The real question asked for another name for the "trachea" and had nothing to do with elephants or the moon. And the contestant's name is Fiona Wheeler, not "Kathy Evans" as claimed in the message. What's more, far from being stupid, Fiona answered the question correctly and won 32,000.

^^ I was referring to whatever show she was on previous to WWTBAM, but i can`t remember what it was, that episode of millionaire must have been some reality tv star special, either that or she just looks very much like the one i`m thinking about,

<br>I think it's a trick question, as they don't specify what type of kettle it is.

Obviously elephants eat peanuts, so the nuts are out.

but then the moons would still be larger than elephants...

And when they say "The moon", it would refer to "The moon" that orbits the earth...

SP, I don't know about any of that now... See Pluto has been demoted from planet to something else. Maybe "the" moon is next. They might even call it "elephant"... Shocked

Sounds like a good thesis topic. Laughing

PS how does one eat an elephant?

You have to cook it first

Quote:
Ingredients

1 Elephant
10 Warthog
100 kilogram tomatoes
half ton potatoes
2 bags onions
100 kilogram salt
1 wheelbarrow onions (heaped)
10 liter vinegar
20 liter chutney
4 Guineafowl

Method

Hunt the elephant, warthog and guineafowl. Hang guineafowl to ripen. Cut elephant into edible chunks, (will take about a month). Boil the warthog with other ingredients (except guineafowl) till nice and juicy. Now boil elephant chunks over high flames till tender. (will take about 4 weeks) and add everything together. Boil for another 5 to 7 days.

Produces about 3,500 helpings.

Note: If the above isn't enough, add the guineafowl as well.

LMAO. Laughing

Can I substitute shallots for the onions, as Morrisons have a 2 tons for the price of 1 ton offer on at present?

We also have a glut of 1000, 000 bootiful Norfolk turkeys here at the moment. Do you have any good recipes to use them up? Sadly, freezing them isn't an option, as the local Birds Eye frozen food factory closed down a couple of months ago and my chest freezer is full.
