It Pays to Be Ignorant: July 2014 (The "Roachkickers" Edition)

On Tom Cherry's Old Time Radio Show, we have a game show segment based on the classic OTR quiz show, It Pays to Be Ignorant. The rules of the game are simple. Our very own banjo picker, Judy Cole, goes into our wonderful audience and picks out our lucky contestant. If this contestant answers our prize-winning question correctly, he or she wins! If he or she answers it incorrectly, well, they basically wasted our time.

However, once chosen, the contestant must first answer our three qualifying questions to prove if he or she has the right stuff to play It Pays to Be Ignorant! In July, Bill was our lucky contestant (For the record, Bill wore bright red cowboy boots. Judy called them "roachkickers". Apparently "roachkickers" have pointed toes that allows the wearer to corner roaches and then kick them. Judy explained that's what they call those types of boots down in Texas. Since Judy once lived in Austin, she spoke with some authority. I visited Austin twice in my lifetime. Great city!). These were Bill's qualifying questions:

1. Did you start a computer company in your parents' garage?

2. Do you often clone your family and friends for fun?

3. Did you ever win The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee? (By the way, I did!)

Bill said no to all three of the questions. Finding his answers satisfactory, the quiz master gave him this prize-winning question:

Question: What do you call a cow with no legs?

Think you know the answer (Bill did!)? Find out in the comment section!

  • I wouldn't, because there's no way she'd be running to me in answer to my call.
