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…

Poor lass, as Eddie Waring might have said. But cheer up, Sarah, we can all have a frozen- brain moment. England (not a UN sovereign state) is worse still, as York Mix has had plenty of time to think about it.
