This is Sarah, with her friend Mariam. She is a first year student in York studying history. She is also fast becoming an internet superstar.
Why? Because she had a very entertaining brain freeze on cult BBC quiz show Pointless – much to her partner’s visible dismay.
You can see the whole thing unfold here…
The question posed by quizmaster Alexander Armstrong was: Name a country that ends in two consonants.
Not easy – there are only 18, including England, Ireland, Egypt and Denmark.
Sarah’s answer? Paris. Only two problems: it isn’t a country, and doesn’t end in two consonants.
In response to this epic fail, Mariam, an English literature student at the University of Leeds, gave a killer eye roll.
To be fair Sarah, a Geek Soc member at the university, stopped doing geography at A level… Needless to say, the pair went out in the first round.
The exchange caused much enjoyment on social media, as you might expect…
