Truman?!

The Final clue: He came to power 34 days before FDR and left it 19 days after him.

They guessed: Stalin. Churchill. Truman. (Truman????)

Stalin ruled until 1953, and started, depending on how exactly you reckon his "ruling" the USSR, sometime in the 1920s. Churchill was PM twice - 1940-1945, and then again 1951-1955. As for Truman (!!!), he didn't come to power until FDR died.

The correct answer? Hitler.

I assumed that all three contestants would get the right answer, er, question. But as we watched this fiasco unfold tonight, I turned to husband and said that I bet you'd be unable to resist blogging about it, and he agreed. You are so-o-o easy ;-)

We are well trained not to mention Hitler, not even to think about Hitler. I suspect the contestants on an equivalent British game show would have gotten it right.

You may well be right, Barry. I was amazed at the guesses, though.

Kathy: :-P~~~~~~

Maybe it's a generational thing.
