Thursday's Laugh Out Loud and Snopesed out thing too

I received this e-mail from a cousin:

SERIOUSLY? NEW YORK - Idaho resident Kathy Evans brought humiliation to her friends and family Tuesday when she set a new standard for stupidity with her appearance on the popular TV show, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."It seems that Evans, a 32-year-old wife and mother of two, got stuck on the first question, and proceeded to make what fans of the show are dubbing "the absolute worst use of lifelines ever."After being introduced to the show's host Meredith Vieira, Evans assured her that she was ready to play, whereupon she was posed with an extremely easy $100 question. The question was:"Which of the following is the largest?"A) A PeanutB) An ElephantC) The MoonD) (Then a bunch of other stuff about how she used up two lifelines, and argued with the show host and then her answer...)I'm going to have to go with B, an elephant. Final answer."Evans sat before the dumbfounded audience, the only one waiting with bated breath, and was told that she was wrong, and that the answer was in fact, C, 'The Moon."

This, in fact, is a spoof. The real lady in the picture is from a UK version of the show and actually did quite well. Not sure who has the time on their hands to Photoshop the fake answers and send them out, but it looks quite real. Here's the article:

Now for a funny, real Millionaire "Oops" video from You Tube:
