Not sure if anyone is watching it/watched it depending on when you read this, but at about Q. 18 they asked what does obsequious mean, with four possible answers (can't remember all of them), they gave the answer of nasty, one of the other answers was submissive.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/obsequious

–adjective
1.
characterized by or showing servile complaisance or deference; fawning: an obsequious bow.
2.
servilely compliant or deferential: obsequious servants.
3.
obedient; dutiful.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/obsequious

Etymology

From Latin obsequiōsus (“complaisant, obsequious”), from obsequium (“compliance”), from obsequor (“comply with, yield to”), from ob (“in the direction of, towards”) + sequor (“follow”) (see sequel)

http://www.thefreedictionary.com/obsequious

ob·se·qui·ous
adj.
Full of or exhibiting servile compliance; fawning.





Seriously, how ***king incompetent do you have to be to screw up the answer on a nationally broadcast IQ test, someone needs to check the IQ of the people editing the show for Ch 9.

Oh, that's on tonight.

I was going to go and test my IQ with harder, similarly irrelevent questions on QI instead Grin

I agree, but I don't think it's his fault in this case, he just asks the questions and tries to be funny, the people running the show behind scenes who are providing the answers are the ones at fault.

Eddie Mcguire is a quality bloke. His passion for Collingwood often distorts that image

Despite what I've shown towards his Collingwoodness I do agree. That's why his radio show is usually one I can easily listen to.

Obsequious = compliance. Submission is alike to that...it's not that bad.
