Yes I realise that one persons daft question is another persons serious question, but heres some examples. Mainly from the Daily Mail.

Is the space shuttle armed? Those holes on the nose look suspiciously like gun ports.

Why don't we see the lovely Canon & Ball on TV these days?

Who was the first drug addict?

Who designed the Irish flag?

In comics people are always slipping up on banana skins, has anyone ever done this for real? I've tried to do it but can't.

During the war, some FW190's bombed and strafed a village in Kent. It was said that the planes flew so low, you could see the pilots faces. Was anyone recognised and bought to justice after the war?

Anyone got any more?
