"Pointless" 10 Commandments

Archdruid Eileen: ....and so, Burton, I'm afraid that "Neither a Borrower nor a Lender be" is not one of the 10 Commandments. Young Keith?

Young Keith: "Love the Lord your God with all your heart?"

Archdruid Eileen: Well, the very, very best of luck...

<<< Sad, plummeting noise >>>

Archdruid: Richard?

Richard: I'm sorry, Keith. I think you'll find that's actually from Deuteronomy 6.

Young Keith: Rats. I should have gone with "...not be found out."

Stacey Bushes: No! I was going to say that!

Archdruid Eileen: I wouldn't if I were you...

Stacey: OK then - "Do not covet your neighbour's ass, or ox?"

Archdruid: Well, the very, very best of luck...

<<< Exciting board goes all the way down to the bottom >>>

Archdruid: Brilliant - a pointless answer!  Richard?

Richard: Very, very well done. Out of the 100 people asked, not only did none of them mention "do not covet", but most of them refused to believe it was a commandment even when we told them. "What's wrong with a nice bit of coveting?" was what one of them asked.  Among other answers we rejected, however, were "don't walk on the cracks in the pavement", "never give a sucker an even break" and "always look on the bright side of life."

Archdruid Eileen: So, having done well at "The 12 disciples" and the "Tribes of Israel", it's Stacey and Marston who go through to the prize round. Now some people have accused me of being mean in the past, but I can guarantee that whoever finds a pointless answer to this question will win £20,000. Richard?

Richard: Yes, all you have to do is find that pointless answer. And the question is - "7 Dwarfs." Can you find a member of Disney's 7 Dwarfs that nobody out of 100 people named....?
