Some of you will know Tony Delroy's dreaded Ordeal By Trivia which airs every weeknight on ABC radio. Now, I love trivia and Tone's topics are generally good'uns, but his callers would shame any KGB interrogator as they connect electrodes to the easiest of questions via a string of painful procrastinations. "I'll just ask the brains trust." "It's right on the tip ... umm ... ahh ... ohh, gonna have to pass." "Dunno. But before I go, I'll just say hello to Errol in Eucumbene." And my own personal sliver of sharpened bamboo "C'I've a clue?" But despite the agony, and the suspicion callers are buying Google time, there is the odd moment of comedy relief:
Bernadette: "In which ocean is the Diamantina Deep? A) The Indian Ocean; B) The Atlantic Ocean; or C) The Arctic Ocean?"
Caller: "The Pacific."
