Sunday Post a 'Pointless Answer'

It's the programme on the telly just before the news at six o'clock (that's our excuse, and we're sticking with it).

And today's edition of the BBC show, Pointless, asked two pairs of contestants to identify Sunday newspapers with more than 100,000 sales, the pair identifying the most obscure among a group of 100 people surveyed winning the vital, deciding point.

But 'William' and 'Suzanne' said Scotland on Sunday – which knocked them out of the competition because it doesn't sell enough. 

Instead, had they said 'Sunday Post', they would have found not one of the 100 people surveyed mentioning it, thus making it a coveted 'pointless answer'.
