But I do disagree with cardinal sin. By that logic many of the questions asked on this site makes the quizmaster/maker stupid... since not everyone always knows the answer... really, knowing what it is, is part of knowing the answer.
If I ask you what the capital of albania is an you dont know, that doesnt make me, the asker, stupid.
I do agree though (that is where you are coming from I believe) That the question needs to be understable. But how something is formulated and what language is being used (common words or their highly elusive counterparts) is something other than not knowing part of the question..
It is not like asking for the most sold product. And instead of giving the worldwide answer it gives the answer only applying to america... (many of those quizzes out there, which is fine, as long as the title is most sold/most popular or whatever is the case, in america)> The oprah program is still a talk show, no matter where it originated. So you cant call them wrong.
Though I do have my doubt about calling a showgirl a stripper... not the same thing as to how I know it. A showgirl to me is like a cancan dancer, someone that performs in a dinner show, with all the feathers and stuff. Not someone that strips and twirls on a pole and gets dollar bills..
