    Here's the question...
    What orbits around the Earth?
    Hear the choices...
    The moon
    The Sun

    And dude blew it. Dumb, dumb, dumb.

    With the help of that intelligent audience, most of which thought that the sun orbits around the earth.

    Well, the universe does revolve around France. Perhaps that was the source of confusion.
  5. The audience didn't help - 56% for the sun and 42% for the moon.

    D'oh, Doc beat me to the punchline.

    I could see someone missing that if he's asked the question verbally, and only has a couple of seconds to answer. It can trick you. But given all the time he had, etc., there's no excuse there. Just dumb.
