Last Saturday evening I was watching the National Lottery quiz 'In it to win it' hosted by Dale Winton. The contestant was asked the following question and given three possible answers : Which of these is the composer Elgar's first name. Wolfgang, Edward, Henry.
The chap thought long and hard 'I'm being drawn to Wolfgang' Winton replied 'Would you like me to accept Wolfgang as your answer' 'Yes please' replied the contestant. 'Then I shall, is the answer Wolfgang'. As 'Edward' was highlighted I doubled up. I appreciate that not everyone is a classic music buff, but I certainly saw the funny side of it-- Smile kp

Worthy of the 'Dumb Britain' feature in Private Eye, indeed!
