Are the majority of French people really illiterate or just basically dumb? The answer may be yes if this video is a sampling of the mental horsepower of the average French TV viewing audience. The following video was lifted from the French version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Ok so you have to read the subtitles, but it’s worth it. Not only is this guy dumbfounded by one of the most basic questions most elementary school kid knows, but the audience seems to be just as dumb as he is!!
Two questions we would like answered: Is this audience a real cross section of current French intellect? and… Are we witnessing an end to those awful Polish jokes and give the Polish people a break?
