My wife was watching ITV’s "This Morning" today, and their regular competition came on. The usual sort where you (and 2m other people) answer a question via a £1.50 telephone call for the chance of winning a holiday. Today’s was some glitz palace in Saudi Arabia, and the question was something along the lines of:
In the fairytale, how many times did Aladdin need to rub the genie’s lamp? Was it (a) 3 times, (b) 33 times, (c) 333 times?
Now how crap would a pantomime be if you needed to rub the lamp 333 times? They’re never normally great, but you would need an interval just for that.
