Q. Who is this guy? [Shows picture of Zimbabwe Ben]

A. Looks like a crook. He's just got that look about him, man. Like he's about to take everything you own.

What a suckfest network. Recipe:

-Rip off Jay Leno quiz-the-average-guy bit.
-Make it way less funny.
-Talk for 2 minutes about how funny it was.

It'd be just as funny a segment with just as ignorant answers if that reporter went around the halls of Congress asking some basic questions about the Constitution and the Founders.

But we can't expect CNBC to ever do anything like that, can we?

SI, your segment actually would be funny, because there's an expectation of knowledge there.

Here we have business reporters making fun of football players for not knowing business. Bunch of smug dweebs who need a punch in the mouth.

Answer: all the way from Zimbabwe... mugabillion.

If it was Congress, I honestly think we'd get some of the exact same answers, maybe even verbatim.
