Those of you who have known me for a while know that I’m obsessed with It’s Academic, a local high school TV quiz bowl that originated (and still airs) in Washington, D.C. It should be no surprise that I woke up early Saturday on purpose to catch the Baltimore version while I was home this weekend.
And I was not disappointed.
Each team gets a chance to answer 10 questions at the beginning of the show. This particular school was asked to change one word to make the phrase below correct:
The girl in the center was supposed to say “Chuck Yeager.” What she said instead was this:
“Speed of light?”
What else could she say when Chuck Norris obviously had a gun to her back?
