I notice that Andrew Bolt is back

I notice that Herald Sun columnist and blogger Andrew Bolt has finally returned from holidays.

I like Andrew’s blog and I generally skim through it two or three times a week. His posts range from things I strongly agree with, to things I just find peculiar or wrong, but I always find it entertaining.

Of particular interest is this video he posted under the title “What’s French for moron?

The question is simple enough, Which of the following orbits the Earth? (Update: Mark makes an interesting point about the question in the comments below…apparently they used “gravitate” in the question instead of orbit…and there are some other peculiarities with the question. End Update)
A: The Moon
B: The Sun
C: Mars
D: Venus

The result is quite staggering.

Good afternoon John,

I can't imagine you with hair, I think the bald head suits you quite well.

As for my hair, I'd be much happier if it didn't grow. I dislike haircuts, and I also dislike having long(ish) hair. If only it could remain short without needing to be maintained!

And welcome back to Canberra, I've missed you since you disappeared to the drive show. I was very excited when I heard your voice after the 3pm news, I hope you're enjoying your new timeslot.

That doesn’t make any sense…

During my 22 hours of sleep I had a very strange dream that I quit my current job (that sounds grammatically incorrect to me, but I can’t see any way to correct it without affecting the meaning) and was excited to go back to a previous casual job working for Telstra.

The few months I spent working for Telstra are not a time I wish to repeat, it is most definitely not something I would be excited to repeat.

Whilst writing this I noticed that Firefox’s spellcheck function wants to change “Telstra” to “Maelstrom”…I would let it, but then this post would make as much sense as my dream.
