a sub-editor, I run up against mind-numbing stupidity more than you would believe possible. One of the writers at a mag I work for once talked about how winners of a safari holiday would awake to see "animals from the animal kingdom" sweeping majestically across the veldt.

Or there was the staff member who was absolutely adamant that Bollywood was an actual place, that before Rick Mayall's "The New Statesman", there was an 'original' series just called "The Statesman", or indeed the actor who told an interviewer that "the most unexpected things happen when you don’t expect them"...

Oh and let's not forget, away from the world of work, an old mate who, when he heard that someone was Canadian, announced that he "had family in Canadia".
