People who went on who wants to be a millionaire must feel gypped, because people on this Jeff Foxworthy disaster of a show can make a mill on answering 5th grade questions.

Yo, don't forget the fact that USA Today is supposedly written to a 5th grade level. We Americans really ain't so bright.

It could be a better show but the questions are for like 8th graders. They had one question about who was the first impeached president. In 5th grade they only teach you about the first 5 presidents. And they only get in like 4 questions a show.

REM stands for Random Eye Movement and is a sleeping phase.

Not sure thats fifth grade material or not.

I'm sure almost everyone here on ISH would do poorly on that show. Most of the questions aren't really 1st to 5th grade questions. So no, the contestants are not all idiots.

I'm a dumbass. No way I'm smarter than a 5th grader.

I could beat Jeff Foxworthy and his cronies in a smarts competition though.

I thought you were talking about the band. I'm sure that the bands name doesn't stand for
Rapid Eye Movement.

that would be pretty stupid.

5th graders are learning about that stuff right now, so of course it's going to be fresh in their heads. I bet I could ask most CEO's some terms relating to my management course and I would get more right, does that make me smarter then a CEO, nah.
