Best Big Brother moment this year?

I'm not really prone to writing about Big Brother, but in the absence of anything worth saying about the England game yesterday (other than, "Thank Christ for Beckham"), I feel compelled to share this moment of greatness.

This comes from BB companion show Big Brother's Little Brother, when three questions were put to housemate Aisleyne (pronounced "ashleen" for those not watching) as part of a viewers' competition.

Here's the Q&A:

1. Who was the first British monarch to get divorced?
A: What's a monarch? [They explain.] Oh. Charles?

2. Which bird can swim the fastest?
A: Birds don't swim, they fly! [She's clearly very happy not to have been caught out by this trick question. It is then explained to her that some birds do swim.] Oh... swans?

3: Who was the youngest member of The Beatles?
A: Bono.

This is TV at its finest, and no doubt. It makes me so proud to be British.

You’ve got to love someone who has no idea who The Beatles are. Or U2. I wish I was that innocent, musically.

Lol. That bint is so thick. She also seems to think she is black, with all the lingo she uses. It's very annoying. Surprised Private Eye haven't picked up on that section of BBLB for "Dumb Britain".

Perhaps she's secretly a genius and is so bored that she makes this shit up. Please tell me nobody is that stupid, I mean the contestants weren't that stupid before...oh, wait.

I actually saw that as I was having a bite and was gob smacked. The food fell back out of my mouth as it hung open. From what i've seen she seemed like one of the smarter ones as well.

God help us.

Seriously... Jessica Simpson anyone?

And I've gotta say, this makes me feel so much better about being an American. I know we say stupid stuff all the time (or at least the "we" who do get caught on camera saying it a lot)... and it's nice to know we're not alone.

firstly...god bless beckham? this is the worthless numpty who hasn't scored from a free kick for his country for over three years, yet still takes EVERY f***ing free kick we get!
secondly...i have not seen ANY of this years bb, and judging by the newspaper reports i aint missing too much! what a set of no marks.
do you think there is now a sense of " if i act as thick as two short planks i will be minted as it worked for jade"?
yes jade was dumb, but lovingly and innocently so! this lot seem to be trying to be too dumb.
scrap it. and golden tickets? oh aye, i can just see my bosses saying "course you can have twoo months off work to appear on telly" tossers!

Red: There's some truth in that. Perhaps youngsters should have their own musical reference points. What was she singing in last night's show? It was quite the classic. "There's a dancefloor, let's get on it, cos this beat is technotronic." They don't write them like that anymore. Or maybe they do...

HtDJ: I actually think I like her. But she is so so dumb, and I'm afraid that puts me off any woman. You mean she isn't black?

Pie: Nope.

TWM: Scary, innit?

Martha: Jessica is another fine example of über-intelligence.

FF: At least he scored. I like him. Maybe it's the tattoos. But when he scores from free kicks, they are great. This year's BB is the best yet, I think. Watch now!

RD/FF: Selling the ticket would be a great idea. I'm not sure I'd want to go in. Altho', with my huge amount of charm, I would certainly win...

I think the silicone causes brain dysfunction. Suzie and Bobo (sorry Lea!) have the same affliction from time to time. :D

Suze: You might be on to something there!

4D: Perhaps best not, eh? Might cause an uproar, even after the watershed. After all, they're not even allowed to say "cunt", much less get killed.
