This is actually a pretty funny story.
So today, I was just catching up the end of Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?
It was almost over, so I wanted to see how much the guy would win.
The guy was in the circus as a ring leader, and was doing the show for charity.
Anyways, he had two fourth grade questions left.
He got the first one wrong, so he lost all of his money.
But he got the second one right, so he had 7,500.
Then the fifth grade question would times it by 10.
The category was Music.
The guy stares at it for a second.
"Something tells me I can answer this question, so I'm going for it," he said.
The question was:
How many symphonies did Beethoven write in his life time, excluding the ones that
The guy looked completely clueless and I thought for sure he was going to answer it
"Oh, Beethoven, please speak to me," he said.
"There is a number inside my head...ugh...I'm going to go with nine...ugh...lock it
it," he said.
I thought that wasn't the number.
I myself didn't know the answer, but come on it was just a random guess!
The host, he looks at him and says that's correct.
You should have seen his face!
Then after a little bit he finally says, "Beethoven really spoke to me!"
I thought it was hilarious.
And people on TV are so funny to watch.
