5th Graders Are Way Smarter Than FOX Viewers
Evidently, FOX has a new TV show called "Are You Smarter Than A 5th Grader?"
Equally evident: some of their viewers... er, aren't. From the Fox viewer forum:
General Discussion - Who is Andrew Johnson?
In regards to your question about the first president who was impeached - all of your student participants answered Andrew Johnson and were proclaimed correct.
I am afraid you think the American public are idiots. First of all, there was no president Andrew Johnson. There was an Andrew Jackson and there was a Lyndon B. Johnson. By the way, Andrew Jackson was the first president impeached.
Your program is obviously fixed, it is very hard to believe that all five children got the exact same incorrect answer.
With all the resources available today, how embarassing (sic) for you to be so wrong on your premiere episode!
Hm. "With all the resources available today," why doesn't this "teacher" know that...
Andrew Johnson was the 17th US president. (Here's a hint, FOX fan: Johnson replaced the president named Lincoln. Ever heard of that one?)
Andrew Johnson was impeached. (Another Hint: Impeachment by the House of Representatives is not the same as a conviction by the US Senate.)

This is one of those days.
Best bar bet in the world: Delilah didn't do it.
Judges 16:19-- And she made him (Samson) sleep upon her knees; and she called for a man, and she caused him to shave off the seven locks of his head.
