Dumb New Zealand: a continuing series, courtesy of Radio Live

More gems from the Radio Live quiz ....

Ewing Stevens (Radio Live host): “What did Dr John Pemberton concoct in his back yard in 1886?”

Caller: “Cancer?”

Stevens: “What Spanish word has the English translation ‘little war’”?

Caller: “Would that be the Home Guard?”

I'm writing this with caution lest I provide you with more ammunition for the series because I speak a little Spanish and know the word for war is guerra, but it's only now I've made the connection with guerrilla.

It's admirable you're able to endure the late night torture required to gather these gems.
Ewing might be a radio veteran but I cant abide his constant promotion of woo-woo remedies that he, directly or indirectly, benefits from.
