A game show on cable television.

The format: the questioner's back is to the camera and never shown, four contestants stand at center stage at pulpits. Questions are of the form:

    Mary's Lamb had
      A. fleece as white as snow
      B. not a place to go
      C. none of the above

Points for right answers are tallied, until the ever-visible hourglass' sand runs out.

The inquizitioner has a rude, abrupt demeanor. For example, if all contestants miss a question, he may say, "Universal ineptitude!" He also gives helpful but curt pep-talks to those who lag behind.
